New Images

Although I am not changing my “look” constantly, I like to have a change every now and again, firstly to keep things fresh and secondly I do get bored easily with my appearance and like to experiment with new ideas. I wonder if all style consultants use themselves as a guinea pig?

Having changed my hair colour from blonde to dark brown, I decided to get some new images for my website to reflect how I am looking at the moment. Although the new images are fairly up to date, I must confess that last week I had my hair cut into a bob, therefore the new pics show off my new hair colour, but not my new hairstyle, not to worry!!

I used a photographer called Paul Craig, who I would highly recommend. The photo shoot was great fun and he was very easy to work with. I think he enjoyed his day too, I shouldn’t imagine he gets to spend many days in a ladies boutique, listening to all that girlie chit chat!!

But the main reason for writing my blog today is to say a huge thank you to my friend Caterina for letting me use her beautiful boutique as the backdrop for my shots.

Her shop is called Vanilla and is located in Hale village. Caterina has an eye for fashion and for spotting a trend, so her customers are always guaranteed the latest styles. She will always go that extra mile for her customers, so a trip to Vanilla is well worth the effort not only for the super clothes and accessories, but also for the friendly ambience and great personal service.

Partnerships are essential to any style or image consultant and to have these two professionals on the doorstep in Cheshire is a real plus!

Seasonal Clearout

Last week I had my seasonal clearout and tidy of my wardrobe. All my spring and summer clothes have been washed or dry cleaned – folded neatly, and put into breathable storage boxes ready for Spring Summer 2009. Sandals, espadrilles and bags have had a similar treatment. A charity bag has been filled with those…Continue Reading
