Aimee was the motivation I needed to restyle myself
and come out from the boring, casual schemes I was hiding
behind. As a result I want to spend more time taking
care of my appearance. I’ve had great fun adding
more colour to my wardrobe and found the Style Bible
really useful for this.
I truly believe that the session with Aimee has given
me greater enthusiasm to get dressed in a morning, particularly
at weekends. I can’t wait for the summer. Aimee,
you were the guide I needed.
James Renfrew, Julie's husband
Just wanted to say a big thank you following Julie's
session with you in London yesterday. Her birthday present
couldn't have worked out better. She looks fantastic
and is absolutely buoyant at the moment.
You gave her a really rounded package, not just focussing
on the clothes and Julie loved the experience too, not
just the results.
It may be the most expensive present I have ever arranged,
but it is definitely the best value for money too. I'm
sure Julie will be in touch in the future for another
session of assisted shopping, or more consultations!
After struggling with my weight over the last 7 years
my wardrobe had become a sea of black! I had got used
to having a handful of key pieces of clothing ,all black,
which I just replaced as they became worn out or tired
I finally decided to admit to myself that I was never
going to be
twiggy and that I should make the most of what I've
got rather than using my clothes to disguise myself.
Aimee was integral to this process and the biggest benefit
has been in boosting my confidence. I no longer automatically
gravitate to the black rail and with Aimee's advice
I know what shapes, colours and styles suit me. My wardrobe
and self image has been transformed and I do feel like
a different person.
As a result of Aimee's help and enthusiasm I can see
myself looking better and I certainly feel more attractive.
Seeing these improvements materialise has given me the
incentive to lose weight and make even more of myself
and I'm well on my way to a slimmer, but more importantly,
a happier me!
Working with Aimee has been a fantastic experience,
as she was able to understand what my needs were around
my image. She brings with her a wealth of knowledge
and experience in hair, make-up and wardrobe styling
and was able to apply that to specific looks that I
wanted to achieve.
I find that I am more confident and comfortable with
how I look, because Aimee has given me a new repertoire
based on some simple, practical and therefore very easy
to use, up to date tips and techniques. Aimee is wonderfully
warm and has a fun, professional style.
After moving back to New York, from london, changing
careers, and having some major shifts in my personal
life, I felt I needed some help to adjust my 'look'
to fit the new person I had become.
Aimee was able to help me clarify my changes, and verbalize
the new image I wanted to project to the world. Through
these initial consultations we devised an action plan
that consisted of doing research (I.e. finding photos/pictures,
etc) creating a file for my new look, reviewing and
cleansing my wardrobe, making a shopping list and then
actually going to get the stuff I needed!
The most amazing aspect of the experience was the clarity
in which Aimee gave me about my new desired look.
When I told friends about the style coaching I planned
to do with Aimee a few of them were surprised and commented
"I never thought YOU would need help with your
clothes." I really take pleasure in clothes and
fashion however I guess there were some days I would
open my wardrobe and feel totally uninspired.
In the lead up to our first session I enjoyed treating
myself to all the womens fashion magazines, cutting
out everything I liked. This gave Aimee a good idea
of the kind of looks that inspired me. We also talked
about colours to work with my skin tone and hair colour.
Aimee then took me through my wardrobe which I was
a little nervous about. After some coaching on what
worked and why, I totally agreed with her on what should
go. I realised I'd actually become quite lazy when it
came to putting outfits together or even choosing new
A week later after a very successful shopping trip with
Aimee, opening my wardrobe in the morning was fun.
Going shopping by myself is now so much easier. I know
immediately what to try and what to ignore. The best
thing is simply feeling confident about looking my best
in any situation, business or social.
All in all, it was a wonderful experience and one I
would highly recommend. It allowed me a chance to really
purge myself of a lot of physical links with my past
and emotionally embrace my new image and future. It
was empowering and liberating at he same time.
Aimee’s manner is one of confidence and humour,
as well as making me feel that this was all a journey,
and that whilst nothing was wrong per say, there was
always room for improvement. This gentleness is necessary
when we are talking of one's image and self esteem -
and Aimee definitely has the knack!
Thank you Aimee for your guidance and I look forward
to seeing you again for an 'update' shopping spree when
you are next in New York!
