Last Thursday I met Joanne, our winner of the Head to Toe Competition, at her lovely home in Roseville to go through her Wardrobe with her Style Portfolio and Colour Swatch and to find where she had made great decisions and where not so great. We came up with with a Gap list of what was missing that included Cardigans, a Top to match a skirt, black pants, shorts, a Maxi Dress, Singlets, belts, accessories and black flats.
Joanne was already very organised in dividing her wardrobe in casual/work/tops and bottoms. Also her winter things were away from her summer wardrobe to create more space.
Mid morning we headed to Westfield Chatswood to look for the items on the Gap list, her Shopping Guide with her best styles and her Soft Summer Colour Swatch in her handbag.
We started at Myer and covered brands like Esprit, Basque, Cue, Country Road, Review, Sportscraft, Wish, Wayne Cooper.
Shorts we picked up from Country Road were a hit but pants in Cue did not fit, due to Joanne's Triangle body shape she is in between sizes what often happens in with this shape.
Outside Myer we popped into Aldo and found a great pair of pointy flats with a kitten heel that will look great under work pants, dresses, skirts and jeans.
At Glassons we found a great Maxi dress in great pattern as well as great style cardigans that will mix and match. We also found a black belt that had an interesting lock and fitted Joanne perfectly in her waist.
At Forever New we found some great basic singlets and a great cream patent belt that will look great with Joanne's winter dress (another Gap filled)
At Equip we found some great necklaces in a soft pink and green tones.
On the way to Target we popped into a Surf shop as I spotted a great Maxi dress and again this was a hit when she tried it on. Joanne was set for a Stylish Summer look!
In Target we found a great pair of pants that fitted like a glove, some more singlets in great colours as well as a nice necklace.
All in all a successful and fun shopping trip that took 3 hours!
This is what Joanne said about her Shop In Your Wardrobe Session and Her 3 hour Personal Shopping Experience at Westfield Chatswood:
"Angela- you have done wonders to my wardrobe in just 2 hours! It was great going through my clothes with you, and deciding what worked and what did not. I never thought I would have so much fun shopping, let alone be so productive in only 3 hours. I was surprised at how many shops we covered! I now have the knowledge of the styles and colours that suit me, so my future shopping experiences will be enjoyable and more efficient. I love all the clothes and accessories we bought together and have already started wearing them. Today I feel more confident walking down the street, knowing that I look good. Thank you so much. I will be recommending you to friends!
