Hi there Chantelle! Just want to say thank you for a really nice day and for selecting some pretty pieces for me.
Miss H – Brussels, May 2018
Thank you so much for today’s session Chantelle. I’m SO happy with everything you pulled out for me, and feel kitted out to take on the world, morning noon and night.
NB – London, May 2018
First, thank you so much! That was the most effective use of time to weed through my closet. I trusted and valued and agreed with your judgement so much and feel like I have some really great outfits and an understanding of what works and doesn't work for me. Your input was invaluable.
Angie – London, May 2018
I have been spoiled for choice when getting ready to work this morning! My husband also approved of my new wardrobe although he said I should have bought the white jeans too. Thank you again and I’ll keep in touch
Marianna – London, April 2018
Thank you so, so much for fitting me in at such short notice ! I am so glad to be going off to Israel with such lovely items to use and enjoy on my trip. Thank you for really putting in so much effort to find me such gorgeous items. I am definitely covered now! Speak soon!
Charlotte – London, March 2018
Thank you for today! I saved a whopping £90 in Karen Millen 🙂
Sid – London, March 2018
Hi Chantelle, thanks so much for today.. Really love the stuff I bought!
Lisa – London, Feb 2018
Every day this week I have received compliments for my outfits! Thank you - my confidence is soaring 🙂
R – Guildford, Feb 2018
I had an amazing personal shopping experience with Chantelle, she picked out some amazing clothes for me and inspired me to try some new things. She made me feel completely at ease and has given me new confidence. I’d recommend everyone to do this!
Laura – Farnham, Jan 2018
Thank you so much for this eve. I can't wait to get up tomorrow!
J – Wimbledon, Jan 2018
Chantelle, It was really lovely to meet you today, thank you so much for all your help.
I’m really pleased that some of my existing wardrobe is salvageable & I’m really looking forward to having your help in future filling the gaps .....not to mention of course, putting together some completely new outfits from scratch at some point!
Diana – Surrey, Nov 2017
Thank you so much for doing another amazing job at sourcing some fantastic pieces for me that I absolutely love and will be able to wear for a few years. I love how you really understand what I’m looking for and your able to push me into new directions and introduce new brands. You have a fantastic eye and great taste.
Rachel – Ireland, Nov 2017
I had a really good afternoon and feel armed for my return to work! Thanks so much.
RK– London, Nov 2017
Having always considered personal styling/shopping a complete luxury exclusive only to those with oodles of money, I recently decided to give it a shot mainly due to having limited time on my hands. I found Chantelle online and instantly knew I wanted to work with her. I am delighted to say that it was a very worthy investment and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Chantelle to anyone hoping to grow in confidence, to achieve a better image and/or to just enjoy the experience of shopping again. Added to which you will save yourself a lot of time, hassle and money! She is warm and welcoming, extremely professional and has a real eye. Initially she reviewed my wardrobe at my home (a great first step) and then she organised a few items for me via online shopping and finally we met for a 4 hour shopping experience. With a brief outline of what I was after she arranged for lots of clothes to be put aside in several shops. We visited each in turn and headed straight for the changing room - what a dream! I ended up with a lovely array of items, most I would NEVER have picked out for myself and absolutely love. I’m really excited to wear everything! Thank you so much Chantelle - for a fun day and awesome outcome!
C McLean – Surrey, Aug 2016
I would like to pass my thanks to Chantelle for doing a fantastic job with my personal shopping experience. I HATE shopping with a passion and contacted her for help and guidance. To be honest I was a little sceptical and concerned that I would end up with a load of clothes that I did not like but after my initial engagement with her, my trepidation soon dissipated and I knew I was in safe hands. The actual shop was a four hour experience and I have to say it went very quickly. Prior to the actual shopping, I completed a document that highlighted likes and dislikes and the usual information you would provide, height, waist etc which was all very straight forward. I was then given a time to meet and unbeknown to me, she had already been to a number of shops and had everything waiting for me in the changing rooms – VERY easy!!!!
I’m pleased to report that my ENTIRE wardrobe is now refreshed and I’m DELIGHTED with the outcome. I would recommend her services to anyone without hesitation as she saves time and money but more importantly finds the right style.
Extremely personable and patient which made my experience even better. Looking forward to seeing her in the Summer.
Dom – Surbiton, Sept 2015
Just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thanks very much for the shopping trip last weekend, I really enjoyed it. Wore my jeans, ankle boots and the thin navy jumper with the pattern on the front at the weekend and felt really good in them! I’m going to wear the burgundy drape blouse/top out for dinner for my husband’s birthday on Thursday evening this week.
Thank you very much! I had a lovely time - and have already worn black jeggings, the boots and the first top you picked out - and felt great.
I made it all the way to British Airways, I got through! And I wore the suit you helped me to choose back in July. Thank you.
I just want to say a huge thank you for the wardrobe consultation and shopping trip. I'm so glad I decided to get a stylist consultation with you, it's amazing what a difference it has made in such a short time already. You understood what would work best for me and have given me confidence to be more adventurous with my style without having to change my entire look. You also have great style and I'm certain I chose a great stylist! I feel like my wardrobe is less cluttered and I'm not feeling so overwhelmed with the clothes in it now I know different combinations which work for me! I'm really happy with all my purchases from our trip yesterday - I went for an afternoon tea today and wore the burgundy blouse with my black skinny jeans. I felt confident and got compliments from my family too! It was a pleasure working with you and I'll definitely keep in touch, and would be interested in a spring/summer update. Thank you again Chantelle and hope you have a lovely week.
Miss D, Guildford
Thanks a million for everything - you did a fantastic job once again! My friends love the outfits and asked for your details so hopefully you will have some new clients. Will definitely have to make sure and not leave as long until next time.
Rachel, Sligo (Ireland)
It was my first day back at work today - I wore one of the outfits I bought on our trip and it helped so much with 'first day back' nerves. So just another thank you.
Thank you for yesterday. You worked really hard and didn't falter when I rejected items! I'm really pleased with my choices and my husband likes them too. Thank you for showing me pieces I wouldn't normally have considered and now I have a refreshed capsule wardrobe.
Penny, West Sussex
I had such a fab morning on Friday, it was lovely seeing you again and you've really done me proud. I LOVE everything we purchased - nothing will be going back!
Chantelle - Just to say a massive thank you for yesterday - I'm delighted with my purchases now need some nice weather!!
Thank you so much Chantelle! I can't wait to go to Vegas to wear all the outfits - I've been saving them! SO MANY COMBOS!
Hi Chantelle, just a quick text to thank you so much for yesterday, H and I enjoyed our day very much. H bought a lovely jacket from H&M after we left you, although we failed to find the navy playsuit anywhere. Fab day wouldn't hesitate to book you again. Thanks a million.
Linda, Wales (Gift Voucher)
Thank you so much for such a fun and useful morning yesterday. I'm so pleased with all the outfits we selected and I'm really looking forward to wearing everything (I have the black trousers and KM shirt on now).
Thanks so much for today and for your follow up email. We had a fantastic time today and I've gained so much from your invaluable insight & advice. The things I got today have made a fabulous start on my new wardrobe and I can't wait to get started on looking for additions to it. The links for the boots look fabulous, just the sort of thing I need. I'll have to go and hunt them down & try them on.
Danone Oykos Competition Winner
I had a fantastic day today thank you very much. I am extremely pleased with all my purchases and am relieved to finally have a wardrobe! My husband was very impressed at my productivity and hugely impressed by the results. Lots of smiles and claps from both him and the kids.
Thank you so much for today. I would highly recommend you and your service.
Hi Chantelle. Just thought you might like to know I am very happy today. I put on my lovely soft long blue/grey striped tunic and stretchy jeans, my necklace and grey jacket with the Geox trainers. I felt comfortable and trim. My mum loved the jacket and the whole lot. My husband says I'm transformed. I tried on my black dress with the belts and love that. Thank God you stuck with me. Thank you very much for your kindness and patience.
Just a little note to thank you for a lovely afternoon yesterday – it was great fun trying on all the outfits, especially those I would not normally have looked at twice! I was really impressed with your approach and clothes selection, not to mention that you are a very lovely person. May partner and the girls were all very impressed and there was nothing they didn’t like.
Jackie, Bucks (Gift Voucher)
The best bit was finding my wedding dress! Also finding that everything I tried on looked great - not a normal experience and very confidence boosting! It was like going shopping with a very efficient, organised friend who had just got everything ready for me. I'm not concerned about not looking nice at my wedding - I'm so confident I will - such a nice day all round! Chantelle, I also want to use your services once I have finished my diet as I know you'll be able to make me look good.
I would like to highlight how much more positive I feel about myself. As an inwardly young, but outwardly 58 year old I was beginning to ‘feel my age' and was experiencing many uncertainties as to how I could make the best of myself. In 3 months time I have one of the most important events in a mother's life – my son will be getting married.
With Chantelle's expert eye for colour, design, accessories and make-up, I am feeling very confident that my outfit is exactly right for the occasion. On top of this, she was able to suggest items within my budget and knew instantly which shops we should try. It goes without saying that I strongly recommend Chantelle as a first-class stylist.
Thank you so much for all you did to make my least favourite pastime a pleasurable experience. I shall look forward to wearing my new outfits. Thank you once again. I shall look into the makeup sessions to decide what is best for me.
Ruth, Kent (Gift Voucher)
I just also wanted to say a huge thank you for the day. I thoroughly enjoyed it and everyone is impressed with the new me!! If you ever need anyone to provide a recommendation I would be more than happy to do so.
Beverley, Herts (Accountant)
Just wanted to drop you a quick email with many thanks for looking after Jade-Louise so well on Friday, we had a family lunch on Sunday and Jade had one of her new outfits on and looked lovely.
Jason, Bucks (Gift Voucher)
Thank you, and thank you so much for the experience, I enjoyed it and feel much more confident about shopping and wearing clothes that actually fit...
Abigail, Croydon (HR)
I just wanted to simply let you know that you have changed my life. The clothes you found for me make me feel so good that it has just given me such a spring in my step. The black ‘pleathers’ as my husband calls them are my favourite and I get so many compliments when I’m wearing them!
Hannah, London (Gift Voucher)
I just wanted to thankyou for all the advice, I took it on board and have loved wearing the clothes.
Sorry it has taken me so long to send this – just getting used to being back at work. Been a bit of a shock to the system! I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the personal shopping session – I had lots of fun and bought some fabulous things, all of which have already been given an outing. The Whistles leopard print jeans are a particular favourite and I have had lots of (positive) comments when wearing them! I also have about 3 friends who may be getting in touch! Hope to see you again in the spring to sort me out for summer!
Caroline, Surrey (PR)
Thanks for a great day. I am wearing some of the bits regularly and have just taken the trousers to be taken up. I will see what I can do but we may need to aim for the new year for our casual shopping trip.
Paul, Surrey (Director)
Thanks for a great day, kids in bed and can't wait to unpack my stuff!
It was lovely seeing you too and congratulations again. I am really pleased with the pieces that you found for me and you made me try things I wouldn't have thought I could wear which is great. Need to stop shopping now! Haha.
Kathryn, New Malden
My husband loved my new looks and wasn't too shocked by the credit card bill either!!
Aimee, Surrey (Gift Voucher)
Thank you so much for the wonderful personal shopping experience I had with you last Saturday. It was such a pleasure and you were so clever to get everything exactly right! Amazing. I've had a crazy first week in my new job but I was so happy to be able to get up and throw on an outfit that you and I had pre-prepared. It took a lot of worry out of my mornings and gave me the confidence to do the job. Thank you also for all these links. That's incredible. I hope the items will still be there by the time I get back to the shops! Thank you once again & I'll definitely come to you for further advice in the future!
KK, London (Architect & Interior Designer)
Great day yesterday, thanks very much. I’ve sent you the photos on another email; you should have them by now. Best I go and get one of those jackets before they all sell out!
The House of Commons event was great fun. I have been testing out different outfits this week, and am enjoying this.
Just to say thank you for my day! The clothes all work together so well, I have infinite outfits! Anyway, thanks again. I’m going to send my wife to you shortly.
Thank you so much for this. You are so amazing. I feel so good today and in general about style going forward. Will def arrange a wardrobe day soon and another holiday session. thanks Chantelle. I am really grateful.
Thanks for the attached style guide, it's most useful and a great summary for me to refer to! I really enjoyed my experience at Westfield last Sunday and have already put my wardrobe to great use! Will certainly keep in touch for any future shopping trips. Many thanks once again.
Karen, Herts (Gift Voucher)
I just wanted to let you know that last weekend was the last of my "events" and the outfits have all been fantastic, I've felt both comfortable and glamourous. It's also nice to have a good casual (and comfortable!) set of clothes that I can choose from every day. So thanks for all your help, I will see if the outfits I have are all sufficient for my Sept wedding but if not, I'll be in touch about doing another session then.
Thanks so much for all your help and ideas on Monday, I really enjoyed our session too. Definitely feeling more confident now. Thanks also for the complimentary massage & the style guide, which I'll be using lots!
Jenny, London (Professional Musician)
Thank you so much for the experience it was brilliant and I'll certainly recommend and be in touch again for myself too.
Michael, Essex (Actor)
I just wanted to say thank you for a brilliant shopping experience on Saturday - the best ever!! Really meant it when I said I don't know how you do it!! And thanks for organising the champagne and hand and arm massage - it just topped the day off! I came away with everything on the list and more! I'm excited every day right now whether going to work, on a date or hanging out with friends as I've got a new look and outfits for it all!! I will def be booking again with you in the future but I think I will be a stage on from where my past wardrobe was!! Many, many thank yous!
Liz, N. London
Hi Chantelle, thanks for a great shopping day. I found it very productive and won't hesitate to recommend you to friends.
I just wanted to thank you for Wednesday. I had a great day - and NO regrets!! Thank you. The whole experience was fantastic fun, very educational and inspirational.
Thanks so much for the extra info - I will check them out. Thanks too for a great morning on Thursday - you'll be glad to know I have already worn a lot of the clothes! The smart jeans, with boots, pinky scoop/cowl top and long purple cardi look absolutely fab, if I do say so myself! Felt like a different person in that outfit!
Thank you so much for your assistance on developing my personal style. Having no confidence, I actually feel slim and beautiful for once. I have been trying out the outfits we put together and receiving some great comments. You certainly saved me so much money, which is great in a recession; I would certainly recommend a personal stylist to anyone who wants to save money.
Thanks for all your great shopping suggestions. Just to update you with my recent purchases as I have bought quite a few items since our shopping date! I have bought the Jaeger bag you recommended & I really like it! I got it from the store on the Kings Road so I could check it out first. Thanks again for all your GREAT help & I will email again to plan another date in the New Year.
Hi Chantelle - it was good to meet you and having a good clear out was very refreshing as well as rediscovering my clothes. I really enjoyed the session and it was lovely to meet you too. On reflection, I really wish we had had more time so we could have styled and photographed a lot more outfits for me.
Hi Chantelle, I am at the hotel and trying on my new outfit for tomorrow. For the first time I am looking forward to the day. I can't thank you enough for helping me and giving me back my confidence.
Hi Chantelle, We have had a great day so thank you for that. I will definitely contact you re my wardrobe soon (next Sales!).
Nicky, London (PR)
I really enjoyed it - thanks so much. Will definitely be in touch again.
V, East Horsley, Surrey
Thanks so much for helping me get a new work wardrobe sorted, you did an amazing job. My Mum loves my new looks! I got the belt from LK Bennett then next day and its brings things together really well. I was flying out of Gatwick the other day and spotted the butterfly top from Ted Baker. It was Tax Free so ended up buying it after all! Your style guide has some great tips especially the colour guide and advise for small boobs! I am looking forward to starting my job on Monday now - just have to decide what to wear!
Just a quick thank-you for picking out such gorgeous clothes for me on Wednesday! I am LOVING them! They are very comfortable for me as well as stylish. I feel you really understood my brief & we pretty much covered all the items. Thanks again, Charlotte xx
I just wanted to say that Katie was fantastic. We covered so much in the session, it was really helpful and she was delightful.
Just to drop you a line to say a big thank you for my makeover on Tuesday at Princesshay Exeter. Everyone on the team made me feel very happy relaxed. It was a lovely experience to be pampered for the day and every time I wear the clothes chosen for me I will remember the day itself. I intend to keep the new hairstyle!
Pat, Exmouth Devon
Just wanted to say thank you again for Sunday. I had a great time and came away very pleased with all my new purchases! My husband said he is thrilled you got me to try on and actually buy a skirt! I'm wearing it today and have had lots of compliments already – wow!!
Anna, Croydon (Accountant)
Thank you very much for looking after my husband. He was pleasantly surprised at how much he enjoyed the experience, and said that you were a lovely person. He did not feel awkward at all, or under any pressure to buy anything he didn't like. He has recommended your services to his colleague who will be in touch soon.
He loved the clothes, and surprised himself because he never would have bought them otherwise!
A. Thobhani, Middlesex (Gift Voucher)
Thanks so much for the Style & Colour guidelines and for the session on Friday. I really enjoyed it and have already had lots of comments about my new clothes! My wife liked all of them, although she was slightly less sure of the pink sweater ... I'm going to persevere though!
Thank you so much for the look book, I really enjoyed the wardrobe experience and I am happy that I can wear clothes that I have not worn in a very long time.
Really enjoyed having all the items waiting to try on. Was just what I needed, the shopping experience without all the decision-making and it just felt so much more enjoyable. Also liked the way you lined up the items we'd tried on to make cosidered decisions, making me less impulsive and likely to buy something I didn't need etc. Help choosing shoes was great. I love wearing nice shoes but find it overwhelming buying them as there is so much choice. The ones I have are just perfect, go with everything and I haven't worn much else since the trip
I feel like me when I wear the clothes but with a more stylish edge! I love everything I bought, especially the leopard print sandals, which have been much admired and I probably wouldn't have picked for myself. The 3/4 length trousers have been fantastic, so wearable. Also I wore the navy heels to work in London, all day including walk to station and made it home without pain!
Thank you so much Chantelle - absolutely money well spent.
Anonymous, Godalming (Communications Manager)
My Mum loved the clothes (the maxi-dress and the blazer especially) and she said that it didn't seem like the type of things that I would buy but she's glad I did. I had such fun on our shopping trip and thank you so much for that day, I learned a lot and now the sales are going on in my town in France (which are really good, often-60%) I bought a nice casual shirt for the jeans that has embellishments on the shoulders, which I would never have thought to buy if you hadn't pointed out to balance out my bottom half.
WS, Dorking (Student)
I absolutely love my clothes!!! I feel so great in them. I have told a lot of my friends about you and I hope that they will ring you to arrange an appointment. You have been incredibly amazing and I really can't wait to meet you again to get my autumn clothes sorted later in September.
LP, Canary Wharf (Consultant)
Chantelle provides Princesshay shopping centre in Exeter with professional styling advice and expertise. She is a pleasure to work with and we look forward to working with her on many more projects.
Mia Bartlett, One Voice Media & PR
I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your hard work over the weekend in Manchester. The feedback from the client has been absolutely fantastic and they are really, really delighted with all the efforts that you put it. They thought that the styling team was ‘fantastic' and it was without doubt, the best road show yet! I am very aware that you were all incredibly busy and I want you to know how much I appreciate your professionalism during the 2 days.
Pippa Rees, New Self Ltd
Thank you for the Style Guide, which I've found very useful and interesting. This really complements the two sessions with you and takes into account my concerns about specific advice on styles and body shape.
SH, Brussels (Administrator)
Thanks for a great day shopping. I really enjoyed it. The whole thing was really enjoyable. I feel I have a great summer wardrobe that looks very stylish.
Anonymous, Putney (Insurance Solutions Manager)
Thank you again for being at our Sex And The City event, we have had great feedback and you were fab!
Helen Petrou, OMD UK
I had a fab time yesterday, I unpacked all the clothes and hung them up today and was excited about getting to wear them!!
Sandra, Twickenham (Finance Manager)
Thanks Chantelle for all your help to develop my own personal brand, something that I now feel incredibly proud of and confident about. I have so much to wear for every eventuality and I don't feel ashamed of how others in my industry perceive me anymore.
Anonymous, Surrey (TV Presenter)
Just to say a huge thank you for transforming my husband yesterday. He looked fantastic on our night out - I have gained a sophisticated younger slimmer model in 3 hours!! Looking forward to seeing you on the 18th.
Anonymous, Weybridge (Housewife)
Thanks so much for a great day and for getting back so quickly. I had lots of fun unpacking the stuff, my daughter enjoyed all the boxes and noisy paper.
Aisling, London (Private Banker)
My boss, his girlfriend and her friend all complimented me that I looked great, so thank you!
Solveig, London (Director, Investment Company)
Really enjoyed the shopping day and I was in the mood for it. We accomplished so much, yet I feel there's a long way to go. My wife loved the clothes (particularly the colours), and how things can be mixed and matched. We'll need to do it again after I get back from the Olympics. Many many thanks again for everything.
Alex, Richmond (Stockbroker)
I thoroughly enjoyed my personal shopping experience. Even though I don't like going shopping, I enjoyed trying on clothes I wouldn't normally pick for myself - e.g. floral top!
Joan, London (DS)
Thank you very much for all your expert help. I hope I'm not such a useless case for you. My husband loves all the clothes that I bought, especially the Red & black dress. I've told my friends & family about the day and they all agreed that it's such a brilliant present to give to yourself. I shall make sure that I will be more focus on what I buy in future.
My colleagues have been commenting on my new look. They said I look really smart & chic. I wore a black & white top with a black skirt yesterday and today is the multi-colour dress with frills at the bottom today. I'm so happy to get such a nice comment from others and obviously thanks to you.
Anonymous, Croydon (Accountant).
Wanted to say a big thank you for the last couple of days. You are amazing. You have transformed my wardrobe and I love all the things we bought yesterday. I think it will take me a while to get used to not being frightened of my wardrobe but excited instead!! Mark loved everything too, which is great news as I know he is now up for me doing this again when the time is right. I really can't thank you enough.
Amanda, Surrey (Housewife)
Just a quick note to say thank you for a fantastic day - I am really looking forward to getting it all in the wardrobe and pulled out in the morning rush... and arriving at the school gates looking great!
Ailis, Weybridge (Housewife)
I thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon together - and am grateful that you gave me the skills to look at feel beautiful again.
Kalika, Nairobi Kenya (Self Employed)
Thanks Chantelle - I really enjoyed Saturday and hopefully will manage to order the dress as well.
Julie, London (Trading Operator)
I had a great time on Friday and really love my new clothes!
Hayley, Fareham (Admin Assistant)
Thanks so much for the consultation and trip we had a couple of weeks ago. The clothes are great and many people have commented on certain pieces. If I need any further help I will not hesitate to call you.
Theo, Cobham (Student)
Thanks for a great day - I LOVE my new clothes.... getting lots of good comments too!
Lynne, Richmond (Freelance Events Manager)
Thanks also for all your advice - I went shopping at the weekend and felt much more confident in choosing items.
Sarah, North London (Teacher)
It's great to have so many new ideas – thank you, I feel I got exactly what I wanted out of the trip, it was great and you can quote me on that!
Emma, London (PA)
Thanks for today - I'm very pleased with the vast array of clothes we got. I managed to get a couple of black shoes from Selfridges too!
Aaron, London (Chief Exec)
Thanks for a fantastic day, just had a mini fashion show here, which went very well. What will I wear tomorrow??????
Rebecca, Epsom (Banker)
Thank you SO much for all you help, advice and shopping tenacity at the weekend. I love my new clothes and am trying hard to be brave in experimenting with different outfits. I'm off to Dublin this afternoon and it's so great to have a choice of things to take. It did take me longer to pack though..!
Samantha, Bracknell (Director)
I just wanted to say a big thank-you for the other day. We had a great day shopping. I now have so many outfits to wear which I LOVE! This is such a big difference. A few days ago I was so restricted with what I could wear due to the pregnancy. I felt down and bored of all the outfits. Now I feel great! Keep in touch and best of luck with all your exciting upcoming projects.
Charlotte, London (Marketing Manager)
I might not be as expressive the first time (also new experience for me and wasn't sure what to expect) but I did have a great day and your advice is very valuable. It will allow me to be more careful with the clothing I buy in the future - colour-wise and style-wise!
Aneta, London (Human Resources Manager)
I LOVED yesterday - it was fantastic. I am so chuffed with all my lovely things! They are currently spread all over the bed and I can see that I have got tons of outfits to mix and match. I will be recommending you to all my friends!
Nicky, Ewell (Company Director)
When my mum asked me to choose a gift for my 30th birthday, the best present I could imagine was to go into my 30's without the terrible body image that plagued made my 20's and teens. As a graphic designer, I have a strong sense of style, and yet finding clothes to fit both my body and my personality proved impossible. I felt alienated from fashion that seemed to be targeted to smaller girls. Regardless of how much I worked on building up my confidence, the lack of stylish clothes in my size was a constant source of unhappiness.
So my mum booked me a session with Chantelle.
I was deeply anxious that I was beyond professional help and convinced that she wouldn't be able to find clothes for me. But from the start Chantelle made me feel really comfortable – her calmness and confidence were infectious. I was shocked that without even meeting me, she was able to pick clothes, accessories and even shoes that perfectly fit my body and personal style. The very first thing I tried on, a pencil skirt, fitted like it was tailored for me. I went through the day in a bit of a daze!
By the evening it had all sunk in: I went to my birthday dinner that night in a posh restaurant and I felt entirely comfortable in my skin. I wasn't even intimidated coming face to face with 3 Danish models doing their make up in the bathroom.
Most of all I feel excited about fashion again. The items that I bought have added energy to my wardrobe – from 10 new items I've got hundreds of new outfits. It has also altered the way I relate to clothes and shopping – Chantelle hasn't transformed me into a Danish model, but she's made me realise that my inner confidence (and a killer belt) will make any outfit wear well.
Laura, London (Designer)
My personal shopping day with Chantelle was great fun and very rewarding, she instantly made me feel comfortable and at ease. By the end of the day I had some really good items and felt more confident about shopping for clothes. I would definitely recommend her service, Chantelle has given me a clear idea of styles and shapes that look good on me and I actually enjoy shopping much more now!
Sonya, Cambridge (Administrator)
Chantelle came and looked through my wardrobe and (very nicely) pointed out where I could improve my style, this even included my glasses! As someone who hates shopping, going with Chantelle was a pleasure, she had selected clothes, shoes and accessories she thought would suit me and put them by in the shops prior to us arriving, this meant no traipsing around - great organisation on her part. I left feeling fab and with a great understanding of what shape I am, what shapes and colours suit me, what I should where with what, how to accessorise and how best to spend my budget. It's great - I can now go into my wardrobe and anything I pull out I know how to wear it, what to wear it with and how to adapt it. I wish I'd met Chantelle 10 years ago!
Alison, Surbiton (Marketing Director)
Chantelle was lovely to work with and quickly understood the style I was going for. The pieces that she picked out for me I have really loved and worn lots. The experience really rejuvenated my wardrobe and gave me some great new style ideas. I will definitely go shopping with Chantelle again.
I just wanted to thank you for a most enjoyable shopping session the other day; I never knew shopping could be so much fun, and wearing all the new stuff is even more so. I am getting loads of compliments on the new look, and will definitely be in touch when it is time to update the spring wardrobe.
Anonymous, Guildford (Solicitor)
I cannot recommend Chantelle highly enough. From the initial home visit where she took the time to understand what makes me tick, to determining my colours, to reviewing my wardrobe, to pre-selecting clothes, to the shopping time itself, her friendly approachable manner coupled with her sense of style and knowledge made the whole experience fantastic. Chantelle has made a huge difference, not only to my wardrobe, but also to the way I feel about myself.
Angela and I would like to say a big thank you for being a great stylist. We really enjoyed how you put our clothes together, make up which suited us and made us look natural for the photo shoot. Thanks again for a great day.
A thoroughly enjoyable experience and ‘a must' for anyone who is looking to find some new ways of dressing and in making current trends work for you as an individual. Chantelle provided an invaluable service by helping me to look at my current wardrobe and put possible outfits together that I would just not have spotted. She applied fresh eyes to my wardrobe and has saved me from spending out on new clothes, which would just not have suited. As a result, after our personal shopping day, I came away with some key focused pieces for dinners, evening outs and casual dress which I feel really pleased with and which have really updated my wardrobe. Thank you for opening my eyes again to fashion!
