Hello everybody … if anyone is looking for some ideas on a little extra style in their dressing, please let me know. I have been a Stylist for over 20 years and have specialised for a few years in women over 50 … those who have acquired a new body shape and don’t know what to do with it!

It’s those pesky hormones that are the problem. They can leave you feeling unsure and despondent about what to wear …
I’d love to know the challenges you’ve faced and how you beat them to a pulp?!

      Hi Tuppence, you are correct those hormones certainly zap your confidence and sense of style, certainly when the hot flushes take hold style goes out of the window and how to stay cool is a priority. One of the issues I found was finding what I like in the right fabric, prefer cottons/linens. When I’ve been to a store for a personal shopping experience I got the feeling they were more interested in selling something than giving constructive advice. I appreciate it can be difficult, especially with someone like me, when I can be a set in my ways and a bit unsure what my style really is.

        The secret is, once you become a woman of a certain age, to create your own personal style! If you would like to meet up for a ‘safe’ coffee, we can have a chat … it’ll be fun 😊🤗

      Hi, you sound like my kind of person, can I kidnap you for a shopping trip.😆 seriously I love clothes but at 55 still not sure of what style I want and if to old to wear it, so end up with loads of clothes in wardrobe but nothing to wear. Gone from a 10 to 12/14 more 14, thanks to packing in smoking, menopause and covid. 🙈

        Kay, I would love to be kidnapped to go shopping! I feel your pain (!) with the size change AND with the bulging wardrobe with nothing to wear. We can fix this! I’ll DM you over the weekend 🙂😊

      Can you help someone who works at home and lives in leggings 🙂 I’m not one for clothes shopping but my wardrobe does need some TLC. I don’t think I have a style, apart from Mum style, been that way for oh, let me see, my eldest will be 31 this year, so 31 years of Mum style!!! Time for a change 🙂

        Heavens to Betsy! 31 years of Mum-in-leggings … I can understand why you may like a quick wardrobe tweak. I would love to help you move on to something that makes you smile! Thank you so much for getting in touch … this will be fun!
        My suggestion is that we meet up for a coffee somewhere handy and suitably socially distanced and take it from there.
        Once we’ve met up you can decide which route you would like to take.
        I shall DM you today with my phone number and we can go from there.
