At Queen Bee Styling we understand from first hand experience how easy it is to neglect your appearance when coping with the demands of a family. Your body shape can change and you may feel out of step with fashion. Maybe you have a wardrobe full of clothes that do not meet the demands of your new lifestyle. Rediscovering your confidence and sense of style can seem daunting but we are here to help.
We’ll start with an in depth personal style consultation to assess your exact needs. You’ll have been given a questionnaire to fill in beforehand, and during the consultation we’ll talk through your answers and work out what suits your needs and lifestyle. We’ll cover the basics of style, colour, fabric and body shape, and use some of your own clothes to show you what works best for you.
Next it’s a personal shopping session with Sally. We’ll put together a capsule wardrobe for you that is stylish, practical and suits your lifestyle needs and budget. You’ll also get lots of handy style tips on accessorising and maintaining your wardrobe.
Our ‘New Mum Gold’ package includes all of the above along with a Wardrobe Refresh. This way we clear out all the dead wood from your wardrobe before we hit the shops. I will also write a list of additional pieces to make outfits from the clothes left. You’ll be left with a de-cluttered, organised wardrobe that is completely suited to your new lifestyle
Being a mum of two myself, I discovered on my first maternity leave that not much of my wardrobe was suitable for my new lifestyle. My collection of smart dresses and heels were not very useful for pushing a pram in the local muddy park! To stop myself feeling like a frumpy mum, I put together a casual capsule wardrobe that was both stylish and practical, all within a fairly small budget. I can’t pretend it increased the amount of sleep I had at night but at least I felt a lot better about myself in the day time!

“I attended a workshop Sally ran about three years ago. My youngest child (of 3) was 2, and I was working full time, and I found it impossible to find any time to think about clothes, or to shop. The workshop gave me lots of ideas about colours, and fashionable trends and what kinds of clothes would suit me, which was really helpful. Inspired by the experience, I asked Sally to help me clear out my wardrobe, at which point it became clear to me that I had fallen into a complete rut with both my work and weekend clothes – they were boring, and I was bored by them. Her advice on colours, what was missing from my wardrobe, and what I should try out was terrific and I bought lots of lovely new things which were immediately commented on at work and by friends. Since then, I have been on several shopping trips with Sally (a much more efficient way of shopping than doing it yourself), and she’s helped do another wardrobe clearout. I now take so much pleasure in what I wear and feel so much more confident and creative about it. And the best thing about Sally is her approach – she’s friendly and supportive, but challenges you to move out of your comfort zone to just the right degree.”
