I created my company ‘whattheteacherwears’ in early 2014 because I have always had a passion for style, grace and elegance in fashion, and I wanted to give other ladies ideas and tips about how to put together fashionable (while not ridiculously expensive) work and everyday outfits and ensembles.
Having been a full-time primary school teacher for the past four years since leaving university, I am now also a fully qualified fashion stylist, completing my training in September 2014 with Cindy Newstead (CEO of Style With Cindy), the primary fashion stylist for Chadstone, one of the largest shopping centres in Melbourne. This training has developed and expanded the knowledge I acquired working as an assistant and advisor in a variety of fashion stores while I was studying at uni.
I hope that my posts and my styling services will inspire you in some way.
Services I offer:
1. Wardrobe Audit and Revamp (minimum session 2 hours)
I am available to visit you at your home to ‘audit’ your current wardrobe. I will look at what you have, which of those pieces are already fabulous (the ‘must keep’ pieces), which current pieces you can match them with (combinations that you may not have thought of), and ideas for a few basic ‘add-ons’ you could buy to give you a variety of options for maximising the pieces you have. We can also decide which pieces really are not ‘you’, so that you feel confident that every outfit you wear is flattering and you feel great every time you go out.
Part of the service I offer with a wardrobe audit is accurate horizontal and vertical measurements of your body, so that you know your body shape and the sort of fashion pieces that will compliment your figure.
I can also reorganise your wardrobe to make it easier for you to find the outfit you want, and I will take photos of the outfit combinations we choose, so that you can put them together easily at a later time.
2. Personalised Shopping Service (minimum session 2 hours)
i. Included in this service is a complimentary initial meeting at an informal location (coffee shop) to ensure that I know your likes and dislikes, the fashion that appeals to you, and exactly what you would like to achieve during our shopping ‘expedition’. I also set ‘homework’, which my clients tell me is lots of fun!
ii. THE SHOP – this is the most exciting part! I can meet you at Indooroopilly, Carindale, Chermside, Garden City or Robina Shopping Centres – your choice (NOTE there will be an additional travel fee for Robina.) To begin with, I will take accurate horizontal and vertical measurements of your body, to assist us in our selections. Because I will already have researched what you want and matched that with what’s available, we don’t waste a minute of time – we shop ’til we drop. I can match your style choices within any budget (I was a uni student for four years, after all!). I’ll also take photos of clothing combinations to help you on future ‘solo’ shopping adventures.
iii. Because the session will be so ‘full-on’, and to ensure that you remember the many things we will have talked about, after the shopping trip I will email to you a wardrobe plan, including your measurements and sizing related to the brands that appeal to you, what to look for, and what to avoid with regard to styles/clothing/combinations.
3. Combined Wardrobe Audit and Personalised Shopping Service (minimum session 3 ½ hours)
It’s up to you how much time you want to spend on each – I am very flexible and will fit in with your needs.
4. Virtual Shopping Service
This is a great option if you don’t live in South East Queensland, and you’re wanting a first-class styling experience. It will be necessary for you to have reliable internet access for this service to be successful. Please email me for further information.
Pricing for all services: $110 per hour plus GST
Gift vouchers are available, and are the perfect gift idea (ladies: below is a photo of a gift voucher … leave it where your partner/family members/friends will see it … HINT HINT!)
