I'm so thrilled....The whole experience has given me confidence. I should have done it a lot sooner!'
I’ve been telling everyone about this service. I’m so thrilled. It felt like an indulgence but it really was an investment! I should have done it a lot sooner.
The wardrobe review was really worth it.(Although, the local charity shop came out better than I did!!) It was great to learn and to understand what suits me, what colours to wear and what items could be matched together.
The shopping trip was actually enjoyable, which is a statement I rarely make. Sally presented an almost perfect set of clothes to meet my varied requirements. I went over budget but was very happy to do so.
The whole experience has given me confidence. I enjoy planning what to wear. Sally was fantastic. She listened to what I wanted, understood what I needed and she knew what sizes, depending on the brand. It was fun spending time with her! She seems like a lovely person.
I would definitely recommend this service.”Annmarie G - IT Manager
I love all my new clothes – so many choices every morning and when I’m going out. I have worn everything and now getting dressed is so much easier no matter what the day holds.
I got in touch with Sally because on reaching 50 (and in the absence of any parties or trip away due to my birthday being during lock down) I wanted to do something different just for me. A shopping trip with a stylist is something I’ve always thought about but could never justify doing. I love shopping and clothes and like to think I don’t look like a bag of rags most of the time but I had started to feel a little bit lost now about what I should be buying at 50– without looking frumpy and old or too young and also struggling a bit with my changing shape.
I had previously booked a power hour with Sally and felt so comfortable with her I knew another longer session would be a good experience. I’m quite an introverted person so putting myself out there was a little daunting – I generally like to shop by myself but I really felt a connection with Sally during the power hour – so I knew it would be okay.
So I booked a Full Style Experience package and it was so worthwhile! First Sally helped me clear out my wardrobe, identifying those things I actually wear and working out what I needed from the shopping trip. I could finally see what I had in my wardrobe !!
Then we had the shopping trip and it was great – it was like shopping with a friend. I love all my new clothes – so many choices every morning and when I’m going out. I have worn everything and now getting dressed is so much easier no matter what the day holds.
Most of all my session with Sally gave me the confidence to realise I am buying the right things myself – Sally picked some things that perhaps I wouldn’t have chosen myself that I love – but overall we are on the same wavelength which is a great confidence boost.Jan J - Pharmaceutical Consultant
I feel more confident. I'm excited about the clothes I have in my wardrobe and wearing them. People are commenting on my outfits, asking where I have bought my clothes- what’s changed etc etc. I feel great!
I got in touch with Sally because I was stuck in a clothing rut. I kept buying clothes but wasn’t particularly happy with them and felt what I was spending/ wasting my money on them! I wasn’t sure what suited me anymore. My body shape had changed which meant that some of my clothes didn’t fit properly anymore. I wanted to stop wasting money buying clothes that I wouldn’t wear very often (if at all). I was buying the same things all the time and spending money on the wrong things. I didn’t know when to make investment decisions and when to stick to high street brands. Something needed to change so I booked a Deluxe Style Makeover package with Sally.
Sally came to my house for the wardrobe edit and we literally went through everything that was in my wardrobe. We tried on most things so Sally could see what they looked like. She was very friendly and spent time getting to know me, what my life was like- what work was like, what my social life was like- where I went, how I wore my current clothes. However, she was also ruthless- if things didn’t suit me, were dated, or didn’t fit (and couldn’t be altered), they went in the charity shop pile. Sally also suggested how to wear the clothes I kept and how to organise my wardrobe so I could see all my clothes and access them easily.
A few weeks later we went shopping. Sally had already done her research and had organised the trip so we could be focused. She made some great choices for me and we went round the shops trying on the items of clothing she had pre-selected. It was hard to resist a lot of the things she suggested!!!
Now I feel more confident. I’m excited about the clothes I have in my wardrobe and wearing them. People are commenting on my outfits, asking where I have bought my clothes- what’s changed etc etc. I feel great and have Sally to thank!Claire T - HR Director
'Sally gave me the confidence to try new styles and colours.......I feel like a different person!'
Sally worked absolute magic with my wardrobe, dragging me out of the 90s and giving me the confidence to try new styles and colours. Our shopping experience was fun and I was amazed at how well Sally picked out things that suited me and flattered my shape – something I didn’t think possible after a lot of weight gain! I feel like a different person and am definitely planning a winter shop to complete the look!

'(I) saved me time, money and energy. And it made the whole thing fun!'
I have used Queen Bee Styling’s services several times and I have been very happy every single one.
Sally is very thorough. She first spent time understanding who I was and what I wanted to achieve (She kept that in mind all the way through the process of sorting out existing clothes and buying new ones).She then went through my clothes with me and had great ideas on how to put them together. I got lots of new outfit.
Sally put together a shopping list of the items I needed. We met in town for this and she had prepared lots of clothes for me to try. During the shop, she tried to push my boundaries when choosing new clothes, always very gently and without any pressure.
Using her services saved me time, money and energy. And it made the whole thing fun! Sally is very friendly which helps a lot as this process can be a bit intimidating.Estelle LF - Lawyer
...(Sally) helped me style the perfect outfit for my event. I felt great in it and had hundreds of compliments about it.
Having spent the past eighteen months wearing a smart top with my pyjama bottoms, like everybody else working from home, I’d almost forgotten how to dress for the real world. Sally helped my pull together an outfit for a live event to promote my book and working with her was a dream.
We had a call to discuss what I was looking for and she then sent me a host of suggestions, all of which I loved. We then did a virtual try-on session and she helped me style the perfect outfit for my event. I felt great in it and had hundreds of compliments about it.
Working with Sally is always so straightforward and fun, and she knows exactly how to push you a little out of your comfort zone while still making sure you feel like yourself in every outfit.Harriet Minter - Journalist and Broadcaster
I’ve already had compliments on some of the new pieces I purchased but it’s also given me the confidence to wear other pieces in my wardrobe which I wasn’t wearing! Thank you - I can’t recommend Sally highly enough,
After seven years overseas and returning to London during lockdown, I really felt like I’d lost all my style and felt very stuck in a rut. I wanted outfits which could work for a casual work setting, seeing friends, going out for drinks and dinner.
The wardrobe edit was a fantastic experience, so thorough and helpful. Going through pieces I love, items I was unsure about and Sally was so good at helping me style and visualise outfits and also de clutter my wardrobe and help me start to see how I could put outfits together and utilise what I had, whilst outlining what would help complete my wardrobe.
The shopping trip was really enjoyable and so professional. I find shopping challenging and demoralising at the best of times, but arriving to find a rail full of clothes that I loved, was amazing and they were pieces I wouldn’t have necessarily picked out myself but were very much my style. I loved that sally got my style, but also there was no pressure to buy anything.
I’ve already had compliments on some of the new pieces I purchased but it’s also given me the confidence to wear other pieces in my wardrobe which I wasn’t wearing! Thank you – I can’t recommend Sally highly enough, she takes the time to understand your style and brings in elements you may not have considered and has finally bought some colour into my otherwise monochrome wardrobe!Alison - Export and Investment Specialist
....the (workshop) gave everyone a real confidence boost and the opportunity to feel excited about refreshing their wardrobes and buying some key pieces for the new season
Sally recently ran a workshop for the Women in Indirect Tax Networking group I run. Sally has run similar sessions for me in the past, which have always been really well received by the group, but this was the first time we’d run it virtually and it was a great success!
Sally’s style is naturally warm and inclusive, and she makes all the participants feel relaxed and involved. She is a fount of knowledge on styling for all women, all shapes and sizes, and can suggest ideas and solutions to any number of styling dilemmas – this proved to be especially valuable given events of the last year and the fact that we have all had to adapt to a whole new approach to clothes.
So the session gave everyone a real confidence boost and the opportunity to feel excited about refreshing their wardrobes and buying some key pieces for the new season. Here are some comments from the participants: ‘I thought Sally’s session was great – I’m really excited at the prospect of wearing non-loungewear!’ ‘It’s given me real inspiration’ and ‘It reminded me of the effort I made when going into the office and how that made me feel’
I would have no hesitation in recommending Sally – she is professional, knowledgeable and great fun to work with!Liz Watt - Coach at Liz Watt Coaching and founder of the Women in Indirect Tax Networking group
(The masterclass) has really given me a focus as to what to look out for with my online shopping (and hopefully future real-life shopping!)
Just to say thank you for the masterclass, it was great.
The masterclass was such a welcome relief from home schooling and has really given me a focus as to what to look out for with my online shopping (and hopefully future real-life shopping!)
Thank you again!
Sally – thanks for the Zoom course the other day. It’s got me out of my style rut:) xx
Sally your webinar was so so good! Thank you! I’ve discovered clothes shops I’ve never heard of.
Thank you – it was a nice treat to watch this tonight with a glass of wine. In particular, it was so helpful to have a new list of websites to look at. I had not heard of most of these.
Just finished the video (masterclass recording) and took loads of notes, thank you. So much I found interesting and useful! Can’t wait to make outfits using my wardrobe (and maybe buy some new things too) xxxMessages from masterclass attendees
Because the hard work looking for the items had been done by Sally, I just had to pick the pieces I liked most and order away. It turned an arduous task into an enjoyable experience.
I have always hated online shopping for clothes. In a physical store I have a pretty good idea of which styles will suit me and which won’t. But in the virtual world I struggle. I get bored searching through the vast choice on offer and usually end up returning more than I keep.
With lockdown removing the in-store option, I turned to Sally to help me expand my options for zoom appropriate outfits. And she was amazing.
After a quick consultation (over zoom of course) to talk about what I needed and share existing items from my wardrobe, Sally sent me a hand curated list of options with links to clothes that would work for me.
Because the hard work looking for the items had been done by Sally, I just had to pick the pieces I liked most and order away. It turned an arduous task into an enjoyable experience. And one where my challenge quickly became how to stop myself from blowing my budget by ordering the entire list!!
Review from client who booked a two hour ‘Virtual Shop’Helen Ellis - PR Consultant.
Sally offered lots of simple tips that will make a huge difference to how you dress - and how you feel.
I recently watched Sally’s masterclass on How to Dress for Joy and Rediscover Your Style Mojo and it was great! Sally obviously knows her stuff and offered lots of simple tips that will make a huge difference to how you dress – and how you feel.
I’m certainly inspired to get out of the lockdown style rut that I have fallen into!
Thanks Sally.Sophie Morris - Introvert Coach, Mentor and Advocate
Every day since the workshop I have given more thought to what I am wearing and have made an effort to accessorise with jewellery and I’ve started wearing proper trousers again instead of leggings!
I attended your workshop last week – it was fantastic! I work from home and am always on video meetings. Every day since the workshop I have given more thought to what I am wearing and have made an effort to accessorise with jewellery and I’ve started wearing proper trousers again instead of leggings! It does help to get you into work mode and also it’s a good way to find out which items I really enjoy wearing and those that I don’t, I will get rid of.
I’m keeping a diary and have started my every day rail and have also signed up for Pinterest which is another whole world that I didn’t know was there!Email from Masterclass attendee Ann K

(The ‘Power Hour has) given me a new spurt of life with respect to my wardrobe– just a little prod in the right direction, I have already worn a couple of things I hadn’t considered putting together before- and even something lurking in there I hadn’t yet worn.
I have already had a bit of a look for some new jeans
Thanks again for that hour of inspiration !!

I feel so much more confident in my styling, I am now enjoying dressing to work from home.
I really enjoyed my styling session with Sally, her wealth of experience and ideas helped to bring a fresh perspective to my wardrobe and reinvigorate some beautiful pieces I had hidden away.
Along with some suggestions for additional pieces to fit in with my existing wardrobe, I feel so much more confident in my styling, I am now enjoying dressing to work from home.J Palmer - Civil Servant
Sally's infectious enthusiasm and joy for creating the very best version of yourself hits you from the first conversation.
Sally’s infectious enthusiasm and joy for creating the very best version of yourself hits you from the first conversation. She has a wealth of experience but most importantly an ability to really see you as an individual, and dress accordingly.
Brilliant advice – the wardrobe declutter was so satisfying and I now have the confidence to shop smarter and bolder.Tooey Gowar - Event Director
I gave Virtual Styling a go during lockdown and it was a success, the clothes were great quality, fitted me well and suited my lifestyle.
I’ve been styled by Sally four times now, twice in person and twice virtually. I was quite nervous to try virtual styling – as I felt so much would be lost by Sally not selecting the clothes prior to our shop and not being able to see how they fit me.
I gave it a go during lockdown 1 and it was a success, the clothes were great quality, fitted me well and suited my lifestyle. Not only does she remember what clothes I’ve purchased before, but works those in with new suggestions.
I honestly don’t know how she does it. I think I’ll stick to virtual shopping with Sally going forward – something I never thought I’d hear myself say.Jo Newman - Senior Facilities Manager
Sally was brilliant at gently editing out pieces while highlighting new combinations and outfits... It's given a new lease of life to some old favourites and means that I wear more of my wardrobe
I’m so pleased with the result of the wardrobe edit and style which Sally did with me and would absolutely recommend it to anyone. It’s been particularly helpful right now as we all adapt to more time online and less formality in our lives!
The morning with Sally was really fun and enjoyable. I was impressed by how quickly she assessed my style and guided me to rebalance my wardrobe to match my current lifestyle. The suggestions she made for new pieces were spot on – they seem like ‘me’ while adding something fresh in terms of colour and style.
I was guilty of hanging on to clothes ‘just in case’ and of buying too much in my comfort zone. Sally was brilliant at gently editing out these pieces while highlighting new combinations and outfits I could put together. It’s given a new lease of life to some old favourites and means that I wear more of my wardrobe – a great result.Alex J - Finance Director
I’ve also discovered lots of ways to put new outfits together, it has also saved me a fortune on mistake buys...'
I signed up for this course as I wanted to get more out of my wardrobe and stop wasting money on clothes that I never wear. It has helped me see that I was holding onto things for sentimental reasons and gave me the confidence to finally get rid of them. I’ve also discovered lots of ways to put new outfits together which I love and would never have thought to. It has also saved me a fortune on mistake buys too as I now know how to plan my shopping trips.Hannah Martin - Founder of TLC
I would highly recommend this course to anyone that is tired of having a full wardrobe and nothing to wear!
I have learnt so much from the course and my wardrobe has been completely transformed...I'm developing more confidence in how I dress and my friends have commented positively on my new outfits
I decided to invest in the course as my wardrobe was full to the brim but I felt completely uninspired by my clothes. I felt I wore the same jeans and t-shirts on repeat! I have really enjoyed doing the course and loved the fact that you can do it in your own time. The lessons were very easy to follow, clearly laid out with great visuals and packed full of tips and advice.
I have learnt so much from the course and my wardrobe has been completely transformed. It really helped me think about my style and helped me see what clothes I needed to get rid of and why. The tips on the essential pieces to add in have been so useful and I have already bought a few pieces I haven’t stopped wearing. The recommendation for the hand held steamer alone has saved me so much time! I’m developing more confidence in how I dress and my friends have commented positively on my new outfits. I’d thoroughly recommend doing this course if you are tired of your wardrobe.’D Francis - Optometrist
(Sally) has taken the stress out of shopping for me and now I have lots of outfits that I feel great in. Thank you Sally!
I really look forward to my twice-yearly wardrobe refresh sessions with Sally. During lockdown we met on Zoom and went through my wardrobe discussing what was needed for the year ahead given the strange circumstances.
I love clothes but hate shopping and find it really hard to put pieces together to make a good outfit.
What Sally is really brilliant at is getting more mileage out of existing pieces in my wardrobe by making new combinations, as well as recommending carefully selected new pieces to buy at a range of price-points.
Now that I run my own business, it’s even more important that I feel confident in what I wear, and that I get it right for the occasion. I completely trust Sally’s recommendations and try not to buy anything now unless she has suggested it.
She has taken the stress out of shopping for me and now I have lots of outfits that I feel great in. Thank you Sally!Katherine O - Business Owner
(Sally) put together outfits that I would never have thought of and they look amazing!
I had a wardrobe style and refresh session with Sally and it was a revelation! I was struggling with my style as I had recently switched from needing formal outfits to a more relaxed style for working from home.Ingrid - Entrepreneur and business owner
She put outfits together that I would never have thought of and they look amazing. I especially like how Sally can add a pop of colour to any outfit making the outfit look together but at the same time it doesn’t look like I’m trying too hard. I am now so happy and confident with my style.
...it was just the right mix of stuff that it so me and a few things to broaden my fashion horizons.
A snippet from a client email who had a Virtual Shopping session.
‘….I am absolutely loving the silk COS trousers and that double layer top, very me. I also got the Arket cardigan and floral sleeveless dress.
Thanks again for the help, it was just the right mix of stuff that it so me and a few things to broaden my fashion horizons.’Charlotte - Pharmacy Manager
Sally instinctively knew what I was looking for and had great suggestions! It really couldn’t have been easier and I’m so pleased with what I bought.
I was really impressed with Sally’s on line styling service and would definitely use it again, even when we’re able to visit the shops (you might want to take that last bit out Sal- I don’t want to divert people away from the face to face service!) It’s a service that I think fills an important gap in the market- great recommendations for people who like clothes shopping but who perhaps lack a bit of confidence or knowledge about where to look, and then honest, constructive feedback on purchases once they’ve arrived. And all via the comfort of your own home!
The Coronavirus lockdown has presented all kinds of wardrobe challenges: even though I’ve been working from home I still need clothes for video meetings that are somehow both smart AND casual enough to fit the setting and the culture of my organisation. I bought a few things on line myself but this proved a false economy and wasted time as I had to send them all back.
I turned to Sally who instinctively knew what I was looking for and had great suggestions. She found me items that were exactly what I was looking for- for example a ‘notch up’ from t shirt and a ‘notch down’ from the more formal dresses/ blouses I’d ordinarily wear for work.
Once the clothes had arrived she did an online styling session via FaceTime to check for fit etc. It really couldn’t have been easier and I’m so pleased with what I bought. At a time when everyone is rethinking how they shop, I think on line styling is where things are heading and will be encouraging my friends to give it a try.
While I can’t wait to get back to the shops with her this has proved to be a great alternativeEmily Cattell - Senior Manager
I love my new clothes....I can't believe (virtual shopping) was as easy as it was!
Hi SallyI love my new clothes – think of you every time I wear something.I ended up getting the cardigan, sweatshirt and jeans from Whistles, the t-shirts from Arket the nice summer chunky cardigan from & Other Stories and the plain white trainers. Olive joggers, boyfriend jeans, black cargo pants, t-shirts and those really cheap jeans from Zara – love them all.Also got the denim hoody/shirt from H&MLove all the stuff.Thanks again for all your help…….I can’t believe (virtual shopping) was as easy as it was. xJo Newman - Senior Facilities Manager
I can honestly say that I am more confident in how I look, and I have saved a lot of money...it’s definitely a more sustainable way to shop too!
I thoroughly recommend Sally. She has a great eye and instinctively knows how to update your look in a way that is somehow still ‘you’. But a better version of you. Having been shopping with her several times over the last few years I can honestly say that I am more confident in how I look, and I have saved a lot of money -I no longer make the impulse buys that don’t get worn, and everything I have in my wardrobe works in multiple outfits. What’s more, for me we’ve focused on high street shops and I’ve been amazed at how much great stuff I have been able to get without blowing the budget, and how much I’ve worn all the pieces. So it’s definitely a more sustainable way to shop tooE Overman - Senior Civil Servant
Sally does an amazing amount of research and brings forth pieces I would never spot in the first place or had the courage to try on by myself....Thank you for helping me look and feel amazing!
My name is Kate and I am a senior technology executive in a financial services industry. I am also a mom of two young girls.
Sally helped me with my wardrobe in 2015 when I was coming back to work from my second maternity leave. To have a set of items that go together effortlessly made me feel confident and professional. Sally helped me hone my style by building a look that was very ‘me’, but a little more adventurous and polished then before.
Since our last session, I have been promoted to a C-level job and started travelling with work
extensively. I found myself struggling to have a wardrobe diverse enough to cover formal work
occasions like speaking at conferences and board meetings, business casual dress acceptable in the tech industry, clothing that would go from day to evening or will enable me to go from London in the middle of winter to India or Mexico. I also needed something attractive and practical I can wear on weekends.
Sally came to my home and helped me clear out a lot of mis-matched and ill-fitting items that
accumulated in my closet over the past few years. We agreed additional items to purchase and spent a day cloths hunting in London.
Sally does an amazing amount of research and brings forth pieces I would never spot in the first place or had the courage to try on by myself. At the same time almost everything I tried on was ‘me’…. only more elegant. Sally has an ability to help you discard things that do not bring out your best features without judgement. The shopping trip was a delight and I felt positive about my body and the things we managed to find together.
Beyond the day-to-day my new wardrobe has been tested on work trips to Israel, Amsterdam and
Poland, a number of work-related social activities, a presentation at Google Next conference and a weekend theatre outing with my daughters.
I would highly recommend Sally’s services to anyone who values their time and wants to invest in
looking and feeling effortlessly chic.
I am exceptionally bad at taking selfies, but here are some of the looks Sally helped me create.**
Thank you for helping me look and feel amazing 🙂

I used Sally for a wardrobe refresh and personal shopping in the summer - best decision I've ever made!
I used Sally for a wardrobe refresh and personal shopping in the summer – best decision I’ve ever made. I changed jobs and the industry I worked in – I was used to working in a VERY casual environment to ‘Business Casual’?! Sally came to my house – sorted, decluttered and put structure to the clothes that were worth keeping. We then went on a shopping trip. It was amazing. Most shops had clothes put by so it was a really efficient shopping morning. Literally everything she picked was great. Also, I was encouraged to try a couple of styles I wasn’t keen on – turns out they are the things I wear the most! Everything I got was tied in so that I could mix and match them with my existing wardrobe which was great. I’ve worn everything I brought on the shopping trip and even clothes from my wardrobe that had been hanging unworn in there for ages, as I had nothing to go with them. It was fun, confident boosting and Sally is a laugh and easy to get along with. So much so, I’ve just been out with her for a winter shopping trip – best shopping trip ever!!! 🙂Jo Newman - Senior Facilities Manager
I have loved and worn everything I have ever bought while shopping with Sally.
Meg Lyons - CoachSally’s styling service is amazing. I have sought her help over several years and it is always an uplifting and confidence-boosting experience to get her help with my wardrobe.
Most recently I contacted her when my wardrobe felt completely depleted of anything good to wear. I was going to work feeling low about how I looked. I had the same 3 outfits on repeat play and they were tired! Fortunately, I knew Sally could help. In the wardrobe review we got rid of some items that were past their best. Sally also pointed out that there were some nice pieces in my wardrobe that I wasn’t wearing so she planned for what I needed to buy to complement those items and give them a new lease of life.
The shopping trip is always exciting, efficient, and so much more fun than when I shop on my own! Sally does a lot of research to plan out the shop, and she has such a great eye that most of the items she pre-selected for me to try on were perfect. I now have some really nice outfits and feel so much happier in the morning getting ready. I’ve had to do a few presentations at work recently and have felt much more confident about myself because of feeling good in my clothes. It is a wonderful feeling compared to where I was before.
Another bonus of working with Sally is that she stretches me to think differently about my look but in a way that is authentic for me – the clothes she chooses are still “me”, but just a modern and updated better version of what I might pick on my own. I have loved and worn everything I have ever bought while shopping with Sally.
She is great at the fashion side, and is also non-judgemental and supportive. Sally recognises how our wardrobes influence how we feel about ourselves and she cares about helping women feel more confident, whether in the professional setting or for a night out or special occasion.
I would recommend working with Sally to anyone who wants to feel happier about their wardrobe.
Honestly, this is the best thing I have done....She is fantastic and I plan on booking Sally again...
Honestly, this is the best thing I have done and I would highly recommend Sally. After having three children I had completely lost my confidence in how I dressed. My body shaped had changed and I did a lot of my shopping online without much success. My family kindly bought me a voucher for my birthday and I’m so glad they did, although I didn’t sleep the night before! Sally took the time to find out everything about me prior to our shopping trip. She had thoroughly researched the clothes and shops in advance. In all the shops we went to she had already put clothes aside so it meant we could spend more time trying out looks and finding really worthwhile purchases. Although she encouraged me to try new things she totally understood what I needed and didn’t make me feel uncomfortable.
She is fantastic and I plan on booking Sally again to help me build up some clothes for summer.Hannah Kesteven, Project Manager
I had been apprehensive wondering whether it was an indulgence to use a stylist....I can wholeheartedly say (working with Sally)was worth every penny...
“Shopping with Sally was a great moral boosting experience! I come from an artistic
background but struggled to apply it to myself ! Sally is extremely astute and really committed
to finding the right solution for you. She has great knowledge and is very good at keeping you
focused. I had been apprehensive wondering whether it was an indulgence to use a stylist, I
needn’t of worried, Sally was so reassuring, kind and good at her job. I can wholeheartedly
say it was worth every penny and that even if you feel you know a little about fashion the
benefits of working with someone that has such a good eye and does it for a living are great.
I love everything we bought and they all work together in a very clever way!”
Sally is great to work with, completely gets “you” but also makes you experiment without being made to feel uncomfortable.
“This is the third time I’ve seen Sally over a number of years, interspersed with babies and job changes. This time, a new big job needed some real investment pieces as well as not being too conservative (because I’m not!). Also, some weekend stuff to wear with the kids that isn’t boring, and some holiday stuff too. So, basically everything!First we did a wardrobe clear-out which was lovely. So hard to do alone, and I got rid of things I wouldn’t have, and kept things and gave them a new life. My wardrobe is now so much more empty, but every single thing gets worn. All my clothes stress is gone.The shopping trip was terrific. After a stressful morning at school drop off, I walked in to a rail of clothes already selected, all coordinated, all perfect. We mainly did Selfridges then nipped to Top Shop. A few things we followed up on that we couldn’t find the size for.Sally is great to work with, completely gets “you” but also makes you experiment without being made to feel uncomfortable. She got me things at all price levels, as I requested. I’m already booking in my next appointment.Thanks Sally”Sally Lake - FTSE 250 CFO
.....(Sally) has an incredible sense of style, is really confident about what will suit you and pushes you outside your comfort zone just exactly the right amount.
I can’t recommend Sally highly enough. First she has an incredible sense of style, is really confident about what will suit you and pushes you outside your comfort zone just exactly the right amount. Second, she is an absolute pleasure to spend time with. I thoroughly enjoyed both the wardrobe edit and the days shopping. I have ended up with a wide range of clothes which I love wearing and are attracting compliments. Thank you.E Green, senior civil servant.
A day with Sally will change your life for the better.
A day with Sally will change your life for the better. The wardrobe refresh and shopping trip together were two of the most fun days I’ve had this year. It’s now a month on and I’m still getting compliments almost every day. I’m so happy to be enjoying clothes again. Sally did a superb job, and was incredibly kind and fun in the process. Please book her – I promise it will be worth it!Alice R, Senior Civil Servant
It’s difficult to put down in words how fantastic it’s been working with Sally......I am transformed!..
It’s difficult to put down in words how fantastic it’s been working with Sally. The two afternoons I have spent with her have been just brilliant. The first was spent clearing through my current wardrobe, putting together outfits from what I had, and figuring out what was missing to turn it from and ok to fabulous. Then we went shopping for 1 afternoon to get some of those missing bits – and I am transformed! Sally has given me a sense of style that I always felt I lacked, a wardrobe I am 100% more confident with, and a whole lot more compliments. It’s so difficult to make the best choices on your own – and having Sally’s expertise and fresh perspective while putting outfits together has been amazing. It’s the way forward – and I will be coming back for more in the future. She is also lovely to have a round, has a wonderful gentle manner about her, and puts items aside and thinks about what might suit you before you even step into the shops. I was so impressed! Thank you Sally.E Hoff - Photographer and Director
Sally was brilliant. She is fun to spend time with, really nice and has a great (and obviously very experienced) eye for detail
“I’m a working mum of three and really like clothes but struggle with putting outfits together. I often feel a bit “meh” and am not sure what looks ok now I’m in my 40s.
After yet another last-minute, embarrassingly expensive, panic shop (to deal with an evening event coming up) I decided it was probably time to ask for some professional help sorting through the clothes I do have and getting some ideas about other things that might suit me.

She’s also incredibly efficient and enthusiastic – she put together loads of outfits from the clothes and accessories I already have and then took pictures so I could remember them.
Sally also sent me a follow-up email with a shopping list of a few key pieces to create even more outfits, which was great.
It was a really fun experience that has given me loads of ideasTina Brown, Lawyer
Omg! So I got home today laden with clothes....I have so many wonderful outfits, and am super excited about wearing them over the coming weeks.

I loved having her expert, kind and good humoured guidance to help me - the clothes she picked were lovely, and many of the best ones I would never have picked out myself
“Sally had already seen the clothes in my wardrobe and did a great job scouring the shops to find things that would complement or add to my existing things. I loved having her expert, kind and good humoured guidance to help me – the clothes she picked were lovely, and many of the best ones I would never have picked out myself. I can mix and match new with old to create lots of new outfits, which was exactly what I wanted – I would recommend this experience hugely.”S Sequeira - Lawyer
(Sally) took all the stress out of shopping and turned it into a really fun and relaxing experience!
I had a great time refreshing my wardrobe with Sally.. She took all the stress out of shopping and turned it into a really fun and relaxing experience! I normally shop in a really impulsive way ..seeing something and buying it without really thinking about what it would go with…or else trailing around the shops if I’m looking for something in particular and getting frustrated! She helped me to have a think about what I was lacking in my wardrobe and put together a great selection of clothes that I can mix and match, also managing to get me into trousers and jeans which I haven’t worn for years! My wardrobes has now got a massive refresh and I can’t wait for the next shopping trip!

My (women's networking) group is for senior professional women and Sally hit exactly the right note for the occasion.....I will definitely ask Sally to present future workshops!
I engaged Sally to deliver a workshop for a women’s networking group I run at the end of last year, having been really impressed with her presentations at a couple of other events I’d attended. My group is for senior professional women and Sally hit exactly the right note for the occasion. She really enthused and inspired the attendees with her practical and realistic suggestions. Everyone was very engaged from the start, and Sally has a talent for making all the delegates feel good about themselves, opening their eyes to styling possibilities they hadn’t previously thought of, or thought possible! The underlying message was that we can all increase our confidence and build professional presence through the way we present ourselves and all the delegates took away some fresh ideas in this regard. It was a lively, interactive and fun session and I will definitely ask Sally to present future workshops at my networking groups!Liz Watt, Executive Coach at BLT Executive Coaching
"......I left with a mountain of new clothes, all within budget and have had nothing but compliments since. I cannot recommend her highly enough"
“As someone who hates shopping and continually feels as though the high streetHarriet Minter - Journalist and Broadcaster
simply doesn’t make clothes to fit me, I was rather terrified of the whole styling
experience but working with Sally was a delight. She helped me work out what I
needed and what I already had that I could use differently. Four hours shopping on
Oxford Street would usually be my idea of hell but the time flew by and we had a lot
of fun. I left with a mountain of new clothes, all within budget and have had nothing
but compliments since. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”
"A friend of mine just reminded me on FB that she is looking at the items in her ´happiness jar´ of 2017 and the shopping session with you and the success of it would definitely be part of my jar if I had one......"
“…..I loved our shopping session….and every single item that we bought, they are all
in frequent use and I have had a lot of great comments for the new clothes /
During the conference a week ago I really felt very comfortable in all of my outfits
and this helped a lot to really concentrate on the business without worrying about
how I looked or what I was wearing…..”
“….again, a huge thank you to you for the inspiring shopping session. I am stillLucia Buttner, Sales Manager BP
enjoying the clothes and cannot wait to continue to improve my wardrobe with your
help. I have in fact started a list of items already that I am interested in…

"I now have so many great clothes that always get commented on by friends and work colleagues and each shopping trip builds in the next so you never feel you are wasting money on things that won't last. It's a great experience and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone."
“I first met Sally a few years ago through a mutual friend at work and ended upJane Glastonbury, Civil Service
hosting a ‘styling evening’ which Sally ran for a group of my friends. It was a really
fun evening – we provided the fizz and Sally got everyone thinking about styles that
might suit them and, more importantly, that you don’t have to spend a lot of money
to build a decent wardrobe. I have been on a few shopping trips with Sally since and
never looked back. I realised that I had a pretty limited wardrobe, felt rather bored
by my clothes and had hit a bit of a wall when it came to trends/new styles. Sally has
been absolutely great at picking outfits and styles that work well and has a great
manner that makes you feel at ease but also pushes you on a bit to think differently
and try new things. I now have so many great clothes that always get commented on
by friends and work colleagues and each shopping trip builds in the next so you
never feel you are wasting money on things that won’t last. It’s a great experience
and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone.”
"(Sally) consistently encourages me to push the boundaries of what I wear, whilst being mindful of creating a safe space when I feel unsure."
“I just love working with Sally. I’m someone who doesn’t usually enjoy shopping and I have so much fun going out for the morning with Sally. She consistently encourages me to push the boundaries of what I wear, whilst being mindful of creating a safe space when I feel unsure. I always get so many compliments when I wear the outfits that she has put together and have recommended shopping with her to all of my friends.”Roxanne Hobbs - Founder of the Hobbs Consultancy
"......I have so many new clothes and even better, lots of outfits, which I love and have had so many lovely comments about. I couldn’t recommend her more highly and I cannot wait until our next shopping trip!"
“A friend of mine recommended Sally to me having been really impressed with her and having spent a few hours with Sally I can totally understand why. I wanted Sally to help me find some new outfits; as a working Mum whenever I go out shopping I usually come back with clothes for my son because I just don’t enjoy shopping for me anymore. I also always seem to come back with the same sorts of clothes which make my wardrobe (and me!) look very dull and I wanted Sally to take me out of my comfort zone.
I haven’t mentioned this to Sally, but whilst I was really looking forward to our shopping trip, I was also slightly sceptical, having had a bad experience with a personal shopper years ago. I couldn’t have been more wrong or more pleasantly surprised. Before we met, Sally had spent the day before researching the shops and choosing items she thought I would like. When we actually met, she already had a load of items for me to try on and I think that at least 80% of them I loved (and that was just in the first shop!). Because she had done so much research she knew exactly the shops we should head to so the whole experience for me was so easy. She was completely honest with me, so all the items I have genuinely look nice (not like the experience you have with some shop assistants!) and conversely I felt I could be really honest back. The best compliment I can give I think is that it was like shopping with a friend and I have so many new clothes and even better, lots of outfits, which I love and have had so many lovely comments about. I couldn’t recommend her more highly and I cannot wait until our next shopping trip!”Deborah Gray - Company Director
"Friendly and supportive, but challenges you to move out of your comfort zone to just the right degree."
“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.”S Healey - Director General, Civil Service
"I've now got a wardrobe that turns heads, is easy to co-ordinate and looks amazing."
“Like many women, I was at war with my body and my wardrobe. I’d spent my life hiding away in black, usually in a size or two too big. After having an accident last year and taking a career break, I began to regain my health and lose weight, but my wardrobe hadn’t kept up. I’d look in the mirror in revulsion and spent hours agonising on what to wear.
Sally changed all this. She detoxed my wardrobe of the unsightly clothes, and took me shopping. I was in a bit of a daze, and uncertain about wearing colour for the first time, but she soon put me at my ease. I’ve now got a wardrobe that turns heads, is easy to co-ordinate and looks amazing. I love dressing up now. It’s also saved me a lot of money in costly mistakes. I simply can’t recommend her enough – she has changed my life!”Caroline Roberts, HR Director
"...it has made a difference to how he feels about himself - I'm sure I'm not imagining a new, very slightly puffed up confidence and spring in his step."
I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU!!
It was so exciting when my husband came back with his bags (and bags and bags) of goodies, and he was clearly happy and proud to show them all off to me. He’s got so many great items and they all look so good on him.
I’m impressed that you managed to strike the tricky balance of challenging him with a few items that he wouldn’t have otherwise gone for, at the same time as not leaving him floundering and anxious too far out of his comfort zone.
I think it has made a difference to how he feels about himself – I’m sure I’m not imagining a new, very slightly puffed up confidence and spring in his step.”H Devlin
"...it was spot on! I love the enthusiasm and professional delivery"
Queen Bee and Capability Jane Recruitment collaborated to provide help and advice on what to wear, for people returning to work or haven’t been to an interview in a long time. Over time fashions change and we wanted to provide advice to ensure interviewees do not fail at the first hurdle. The result was running a webinar with Queen Bee, providing valuable advice on fashion fundamentals, body shape and accessories as well as advice for those with a budget. We all picked up valuable advice from Queen Bee’s extensive fashion experience and knowledge. Capability Jane Recruitment would recommend Queen Bee to anyone who needs to uplift their wardrobe and if like us, help with getting rid of the traditional suit.
- It was spot on! I love the enthusiasm and professional delivery.
- Really interesting content, exceeded my expectations.
- Excellent topic and immensely helpful. Sally had a great delivery style with lots of ideas and help.
- It was a great webinar, thank you!
- Great webinar. I’ll have to get rid of my suits now. They were in the wardrobe just in case…..!
- Worked really well.
"I now have a great wardrobe..."
“I recently spent a morning with Sally to sort out my back to work wardrobe. I now have a great wardrobe which is interchangeable and I love. A lot of which I wouldn’t have bought alone and I am over the moon.”S Lake - Chief Actuary
"The styling party I went to was really fun and informative..."
“The styling party I went to was really fun and informative. I was a bit apprehensive because I’m not much of a fashion person, but when I realised that I could identify my body shape, I instantly perked up and took an interest. Simple tricks like knowing what trouser shape or skirt length looks best on me were something I could use every time I went shopping. We also learned how to freshen a wardrobe with a couple of on-trend prints or colours, and I particularly liked learning how to use a scarf or a bag to add that “fashion” touch to a classic outfit. And it was a real laugh – Sally was charming, funny and interested in everybody. Highly recommended.”K Crawford, East Dulwich
"We worked with Sally from Queen Bee Styling to run a personal styling event at one of our fashion and lifestyle stores...."
“We worked with Sally from Queen Bee Styling to run a personal styling event at one of our fashion and lifestyle stores, the dulwich trader. Sally gave a presentation on creating a capsule wardrobe and putting pieces together for the new season. This was really inspiring and helpful for many of us who are so busy juggling jobs and kids that taking time every morning to create an outfit just isn’t realistic and we need a little help so that having bought wisely, the outfits create themselves. It was a really fun evening and Sally was great. I would love to organise a personal styling session now!”Katharine MacLaverty, Director The Dulwich Trader Ltd Rigby & Mac, The Dulwich Trader, ed & Tomlinsons
