Last week I was asked to be on the podcast of fellow stylist Lisa Gillbe. It's always lovely to connect with other stylists, and Lisa is one of the people I often recommend for women.I jumped at the chance to be on The Style Stories podcast where we discussed why men and women book personal stylists, plus which 5 pieces we would choose for a smart casual capsule business wardrobe for men or for women.
Sartoria Lab Style Tips
Do you find yourself thinking........
I have no time to shop?
I don't want to look too immature but I don't want to look like my dad either?
I hate Dress Down Fridays?
If the answer is yes, it's your lucky day! Take advantage of today's Black Friday discount to get your 20% off and when you book in for your session, I'll do all the thinking for you.
If you've ever thought about hiring a personal stylist like me, but aren't quite sure if it's worth it and whether you'll benefit, then I wrote this blog post for you! Read on to see how I might be able to help you get your wardrobe in shape, and if you have any questions, then please do get in touch.
This week I have a slightly different blog post from usual, as I was very excited to do my first podcast interview this week.
I talked to Yang-May Ooi from Tiger Spirit on her South London Voices podcast about my personal styling and shopping services, how they work and exactly what I do and who I do it for. I explained how I help ordinary, everyday guys rather than celebrities, which is still what many people automatically associate personal styling with.
If you've already found a style you're happy with......congratulations! This is exactly what I try to do with my clients - I help them to find their own style and learn how to identify the details so they can say yes that feels very "me" and they can then repeat the process.
I believe true style is when you have a consistent look from the most casual ie: wearing swimshorts on the beach to the most formal ie: a dinner jacket at an event and all the scenarios in between. As well as discovering what your own true style is and wearing things that reflect that, in order to be truly stylish you also need to ensure your clothes fit well, suit your colouring and body shape and are appropriate to the occasion.
Whilst doing a personal styling session with a client last week, he asked me "What are the correct strategies for shopping?" A great question and one which I thought would make a good blog post that others would be interested in too.
I thought about what I do when I take a client on a personal shopping trip and how you can do this for yourself.
Not sure if you should book in with me or choose another type of personal styling or shopping service?
If you've seen other menswear styling services around and are wondering which option is right for you and exactly how we all differ from each other, I've set out to explain who does what, along with the pros and cons of each so that you can clarify which service will suit you best.
