Thank you sooooo much for your time yesterday.  I cannot begin to tell you how much better I’m starting to feel about myself.

I feel like you gave me a glimpse of the TRUE woman in me that was lost somewhere inside my body.

I was blown away with how simple it was to create a completely different look by simply wearing the correct colours, cuts and shapes that show off my best features. I feel like you’ve ignited my creative side for fashion. I cannot wait to sort through my wardrobe and go out shopping now you’ve given me the tools in what to look for. I’m so excited to show off to the world who Lindsey is and bring that creativity into my appearance.

All I’ve been thinking about since coming home is my plan of action. You’ve made me realise I am worth it and am worth investing in. With your guidance I feel like I am on a path of transformation. Not only with my appearance, but from within and how l feel about myself and how I’ve added value to Lindsey.  I feel like for first time in a long time I’m starting to feel good about who I am.  Now I’ve started to feel good about myself my gut feeling is that everything else will start falling into place.

I cannot wait to get cracking and super excited to see you again with some fantastic clothing. I’m really looking forward to seeing what you recommend for starting off some outfits for the events in my life that are ahead.  I’ve told all my friends how amazing you are, and what I’ve learnt with you has been one of the best investments any woman can give herself. They are really excited to see me changing into the professional, confident woman I want the world to see.

I’m so happy to have met you. You are an amazing woman.
From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU xxxxxxxxx

I just want to say a big thank you for spending time with me yesterday to help me with my body shape and to focus my mind on my colours which I have evidently been neglecting!

You have given me a great point of reference for sorting out my wardrobe and I now feel a lot more confident as to the direction I need to go.  I shall enjoy looking for those lovely spring colours and realise too how my body shape affects everything I wear.

Thank you for your time, patience and fun as we tackled what is quite a life-changing experience but you made it enjoyable.  I loved your encouragement, enthusiasm and personal attention – it’s a real treat to have someone interested in how we look to the outside world!

I met Maggi at an event and was impressed with some of case studies so decided to make an appointment. I was excited, but maybe a little apprehensive in advance of my visit to her, but I shouldn’t have worried.

Maggi is a lovely lady who makes you feel at ease straight away. I had a wonderful session with her, found it very enlightening and really enjoyed it.

I have had a sort out of my wardrobe and look at the contents with new eyes now and have got rid of some clothes that really don’t suit me.

Since my visit I now have the confidence when shopping I now say ‘no’ to items I know won’t suit me and have bought a lovely dress that is a size smaller than I would have bought before, so it fits snugly and it looks fab!

Thank you so much Maggi for your support and guidance – you’re amazing!

What neckline is best for a small bust

There are so many different necklines out there… what neckline is best for a small bust?

Here we have a client that I have been working with in Cornwall, Devon.  I was asked to go through her wardrobe, clearing out the wrong items and keeping the best pieces that work for her body, personality and age.  I love looking at different garments in people’s wardrobes, trying them on to see how they can change the body shape, proportions in a good and bad way.

 

I wanted to share with you three red tops with different necklines and how this changes the bust and neck area.

My client has a medium length neck is in the age of 60’s and a small bust.  She is happy with her bust size, but does not want to make her bust area smaller.

  1. DEEP SCOOP – Here we can see how low the neckline is, which makes the bust smaller.  There is too much flesh showing for her age, but does elongate her neck.

 

 

2. DEEP V-NECK – Another red top with a deep narrow v-neck.  Again this neckline draws down to her bust, making the bust smaller.  This is not the best option.  It does make her neck longer, which is a nice asset to have.

 

 

 

3. ROUND NECK – This neckline is the best one for my client.  The neckline is higher up which makes the best look bigger.  The scoop is much smaller, this sits well on the body.  Another bonus is showing some flesh, elongating the neck area.

Now we both know what neckline works for my client.  Seeing the tops on and showing my client in the mirror makes it real and believable.

To make her wardrobe more interesting, she would benefit with more tops with this neckline in more colours which suit her skin tone.

A few basic good quality jerseys and knitwear will be excellent staple items to form a fab capsule wardrobe.  Saving money in the long run and making my client feel confident and walking tall.

My first experience working with Maggi was in a colour consultation workshop with my friend. I wish I had met Maggi in my twenties.  She was so generous with her time & advice, so thought provoking & has completely changed how I view myself.
Maggi has a natural way of sharing information without you feeling self conscious.  I wish we could have stayed with her all day!
I would recommend Maggi to everyone, especially if you’re having a tough time.
Work with what you have, rather than trying to change yourself is definitely the focus – life changing.
Next stage – can’t wait for our style and shopping workshop in August :))
Thank you Maggi, you are a genius!

Hair to cancer charity “Little Princess”

I was very privileged to be asked by my fab tailor Vanessa, to be part of her wonderful story. She decided to grow her glorious locks to then give the majority to Little Princess charity for children. When dealing with clients that have had cancer, they feel exposed and uncomfortable wearing a wig with synthetic hair and want to feel normal as possible.

  • Here are the major stages we took – a remarkable transformation to Vanessa, I believe for the better.

 

Stage 1 – here is Vanessa with her amazing thick, long hair.

I gave Vanessa a consultation, deciding what hair style would be best for her.

This included – analyising her face shape, facial features, personality and scale. All these little things are very important to ensure the end result is right for Vanessa.

 

Stage 2

Putting her hair into pony tails about to do the scary thing and cut it off. The hair had to be a certain length to use to make a wig.

We were both very nervous and very excited about to make a massive change.

 

 

Stage 3

We have done it!

Now for the huge restyle… short hair here we come!!

 

 

 

Stage 4 – 

The new Vanessa

Wow, she looks amazing. I so much prefer the new hair style than the long hair.

Vanessa is a true dramatic, her style is fantastic, that is so her. She is creative inside and truly shows off her talent on the outside too. The new hairstyle looks vintage, that matches her look.

Career upgrade – Vanessa also wanted to improve the way she was being perceived. When you reach the end of your 20’s, early 30’s you need to be aware of looking age appropriate and more professional. You tend to stay with your look from school/university and need to move on with what what is going on today. This is a common problem, due to confidence and know how.

Hair – by providing layers on top of her head, makes Vanessa look taller, which was a focus. The layers also give width to the sides of the head, improving her face shape.

We wanted to elongate her neck, which has worked bringing the length up away from the neck.

Her new hairstyle has movement and curves which match her contoured facial features, this is an area that not many people are aware of.

Finally, we put some cool, bright lipstick on to match her stunning colour characteristics.

We were both very happy with the results. A very brave thing for Vanessa to do – but an amazing story! I very much enjoyed being part of it.

Maggi has literally transformed the way I feel about myself, clothes and my appearance.  She explains the theory behind how to choose clothes, colours and accessories and explains this in a logical way, I now understand how to do this for myself.

Her attention to detail is amazing. People have definitely been commenting on the difference in how I look and my confidence is the best it has ever been!

I would thoroughly recommend Maggi, everyone should spend time with her!
