Time with Paul is the gift that keeps on giving! He helped me update and re-energize my look after having two kids and moving from formal, chilly London to informal, sunny California. I've gotten so many more compliments since we began working together and I feel (and look) better, more confident, and more stylish.
We started by setting goals and priorities, then went straight to my closet to go through everything I owned - he gave lots of constructive criticism about what did and didn't work for my body, and what was and wasn't working in my everyday looks - but he was also gentle - he told me what I was doing well, and took the time to help me understand how I could make small changes to take it up a notch and look a lot more pulled together. We shopped together and he also sent me recommendations to buy on-line - he was very conscious of how little free time I had and flexed to make it work well for me. We even did a quick skype session when I was struggling to put some of my new pieces together.
And he saved me money too - he was great about pointing out where I should spend in terms of long term value (and where I should keep it cheap and cheerful), and found awesome deals and sales that I would have been too busy to track. The savings he helped find come pretty darn close to covering his fees, and more importantly, he's left me feeling very self-sufficient rather than dependent. While I still value his opinion, he's armed me with lots of knowledge so that I can put things together on my own - he took something that seemed complicated and made it feel easy and fun.
I recommended him to my mother-in-law, who had a fantastic experience too (with a very different set of priorities and needs), and can't wait to set him up with other friends and family. He's very helpful in the context of a new job, a change of lifestyle (kids!), or just when you feel like you're in a bit of a rut when it comes to getting dressed!
