How do I book an appointment?
You can either call 02084402869, text 07966244651 or complete the contact me form. I then book in a convenient appointment time/date with you. For personal shopping trips I advise where to meet 48 hours or more in advance.
Secure Payment - How do I pay?
To secure your appointment, you can pay by Credit Card or Paypal on the website, or I email an invoice for BACS transfer.
How much do I need to spend on a personal shopping trip?
My clients all have varying budgets, so it’s completely up to you. It is a good idea though to discuss an estimated budget with me before the day. Allowing me to fully research your shopping trip in advance.
When shopping, I will always try to get you the best possible value for your purchases. I don’t work on commission for any retailers or stores. All my style advice is completely independent and unbiased.
Can I bring a partner, relative, friend etc with me?
Yes, it is completely fine to bring a guest with you. I realise that meeting with a personal stylist for the first time may be a daunting prospect. Or a husband/wife may have booked a gift and would like to accompany their partner, as part of a special celebration.
If you can limit to just one guest. Please note that personalised styling advice is only given to the client.
I can never find anything to suit me. How do I know you can?
In over 15 years I have styled and designed for many clients of all shapes and sizes. In that time, I have always been successful in fulfilling my client’s requirements. My experience and clothing knowledge will be able to find you outfits even within the first hour.
Am I able to have my hair and make-up done?
For an additional fee I can arrange a hair restyle, makeup session, manicure or male grooming session to your day. Please contact me to discuss your requirements in more detail.
I don’t live near London or in the UK, can you still help me?
Yes, I can travel outside of London on occasions, but I really recommend visiting London for your Personal Shopping Experience. If you are travelling from outside of London we plan your day in advance, I then meet you straight from the train, or your hotel. We talk through the day over a coffee (or something with more fizz!) before starting your style journey. We finished I will make sure you arrive in plenty of time for your journey home. Where you do not wish to travel I provide an online style service that is not location based. See online personal styling.
If you would like me to travel to you and you are based outside of London /surrounding counties, I add on the travel fee as an extra charge. If you are outside of the UK accommodation and travel will be charged in advance. Please contact me directly for more details.
