Kind words from clients…
I have never had this kind of information before and I found it really useful not just in my working life, but in my private life as well.
Many people have commented on the colours I’m now wearing – and the fact they are much more flattering to me. And I must say it’s brilliant to finally know what to look for when I go shopping! I can discard loads of clothes because they’re not ‘right’ and concentrate on buying the best shapes and colours for me. Claire’s also really approachable and passionate and a lovely person to boot.
Claire arrived at my house armed with fabric swatches and other goodies and we sat down to go through everything. It was a positively life-changing afternoon!
Itʼs very simple, you just sit there in front of a mirror with coloured fabrics held next to your skin to see which work best with your skin tone. Itʼs quite dramatic the difference colour makes in creating shadows on your face and adding, or taking away, years.
After we discovered what colours suited me best I was guided through what styles would flatter my figure, whilst allowing me to keep my individuality. The life-changing part is that I can now go into any shop and see immediately if there are clothes that suit me. It is truly liberating.
I only wish that I had this consultation done years ago – when I think of how much money I would’ve saved from buying clothes that just didn’t suit me and sat on hangers for years it would’ve paid for the consultation many times over.
I cannot recommend Claire highly enough. I already have a wardrobe overhaul and a personal shopping trip booked and am really looking forward to it!
The real testament to Claire is last Saturday Clive and I went shopping for him and his first questions were ‘are these suitable for my shape’ and are these in my colours…anyone who engages Clive in the process must be good!!
Want to feel good, look great and spend wisely then ask Claire for help…you won’t look back!!
Before seeing Claire I was not certain which colours suit me most and I lacked the confidence to walk out wearing some colours. The consultation took place at my home and I found Claire warm and encouraging, yet very knowledgeable and professional. At the end of the session, I was given swatches of my colour palette and some great advice, to help me in my shopping trips. Now I am happy to step out in shades of orange and red, knowing that they complement my natural colouring and make me glow!
The style consultation took place at a lovely local venue. After quite a lot of discussion and observation to help Claire see my wardrobe personality, my lifestyle and work, my self-body image as well as my true body shape, she gave me some excellent tips on everything from clothes to jewellery and from belts to bags and shoes. She also made me see myself more clearly; my attributes as well those little problem areas, that we like to minimize! She followed this up with my own “style bible” so that I can refer back to all we discussed. I know she is happy to take any questions I have, since my appointments too.
I am now much more confident about choosing colours and styles for the right occasion – at work and outside it- and I find shopping much quicker and easier now that I know what I should be looking at. In the future, I might hire Claire again for personal shopping, if I wanted another opinion for a major purchase or an outfit for a special event.
I would recommend Claire to anyone who wants to gain more knowledge and confidence in what makes them look and feel great and what is appropriate for their life and work. That applies , regardless of gender, body size and shape, age, lifestyle, current confidence or anything – go on, what are you waiting for?
Initially I went for the style consultation and walked away knowing what styles suited my figure – immediately this was huge confidence boost for me and I couldn’t wait to find out my colours too! The colour consultation was equally as brilliant as the style one and I felt I had a real toolkit for when I was shopping.
The next trip out to the shops was a quite amazing experience, here I was walking into shops and moving past rails and rails of clothes in the wrong styles and colours, easily ignoring them in the search for something that I knew would suit me. I found I could quickly browse the sale rails and I also realised that my attitude to shopping had changed too – I was no longer looking for anything to jump out at me but more looking for specific items I knew would be a good addition to my wardrobe.
In the years since I’m sure I’ve saved hundred of pounds by not buying items I end up never wearing. I am regularly complimented on my choice of clothes (not something that happened much in the past!) and I feel SO much better about myself and my style.
I have used Claire to buy outfits for an event and they were the perfect choice and I can’t wait to find another excuse to take her shopping and get some more great outfits hanging in my wardrobe.
I have given gift vouchers for consultations for friends and would recommend that every woman see Claire and have a consultation done – especially if you’re not 100% confident with your clothes/style. It has been one of the best things I’ve ever done and would suggest to book an appointment immediately and open your eyes up to the world of Claire Butler and all the wonders it holds!
She listens and interprets and gives sensible realistic advice, which is neither patronising nor degrading! I would have no hesitation in recommending Claire- a session with her transformed my view of my clothes and how I could wear them all- even Black!!!”
I’ve had so many compliments from friends since I had my consultation, saying they have really noticed a difference. I’d love to keep it a mystery, but I think it’s only fair that I give them Claire’s details as I know she will make them feel as good about themselves as I now do about myself.
In 3 hours, I managed to buy more than I could hope to buy in a dozen solo shopping trips. No pick up, try on, indecision. No buy and take back, or buy, hang up and never wear again. It was a revelation.
The ‘It’s Not What You Wear’ workshops have been a fantastic medium for boosting participation in the learning programmes we have regularly put together for Saffron Housing Trust. Learners have benefited from boosted confidence skills and improved job opportunities simply because they have had fun learning what colours and clothing styles best suit them as a result of your supportive teaching style and expert knowledge. The feedback from our learners has always been incredibly positive; they particularly like the way any theory is interactively presented with direct ‘hands on’ trying out of colours and styles.
I have always liked your approachable, adaptable, fun and reliable personality and found you to be a professional who takes pride in delivering high quality workshops. On a personal level you made a real difference to my wardrobe and shopping confidence when I commissioned you a couple of years ago to work with me. To this day I wear only the colour palette and styles you suggested for me; many of my friends noticed and liked the ‘new me’ immediately!
