Now I am looking forward to transforming my wardrobe with colour on my next shopping trip!
I had my seasonal colours done with Abbey recently and found it was a transformational experience. I wasn’t sure what to expect but she explained how it all worked and when I saw the effect the colours had on my skin and eyes, I was amazed and really pleased as these were colours I used to love wearing. I am so looking forward to experiment and try on all of these gorgeous colours and feel like a whole world of colour has opened up to me – I honestly feel like a new woman!
‘I very much enjoyed my shopping experience with Abbey, as she immediately put me at ease and I trusted her opinion very quickly. I loved every outfit she created for me and as she completely understood my style and colours she was able to put together a few unique looks I would not have considered but really liked and felt comfortable in and she also found me some amazing jeans too! The shopping experience exceeded my expectations in every way and I would definitely recommend Abbey!’
Abbey put together two looks for me in an hour and both were outfits I would not have tried myself using textures and colours I hadn’t considered, but did suit me. It was an interesting experience as it made me think about looking at other styles and not just buying the same stuff I normally do when out shopping, so I learnt a lot from her. I really liked the jacket she suggested and will definitely be going back for that!
Abbey put together a stylish and bold look for me using items from my existing wardrobe which I hadn’t been wearing much, so that was useful. She also taught me different ways to wear a trench coat, which means I can now buy one with confidence knowing how to wear and style it with outfits I already own. She was brave and creative and it pushed me out of my comfort zone, which I really appreciated and enjoyed.
I loved the outfit Abbey created! Using pieces from my existing wardrobe that I either hadn’t worn or barely worn before which I would have never have put together, it’s a really creative look and I will definitely wear this outfit on a night out in New York.

Abbey chose me an outfit I would never have picked for myself from Topman which I really liked and was in budget. I felt comfortable, smart and confident in the checked blazer and it’s a style I will definitely consider wearing and enjoying.
What a style brain Abbey has! I booked a bespoke Style and Shopping Experience for myself (50-something year old & my 22 year old daughter) after we decided we wanted to share more ‘experiences’ together. As we live in Manchester she had really prepped and worked out what worked and what didn’t for each of us prior to our first meeting. She was so relaxed, professional and confident that it was a pleasure to have her in our home. WOW – every stitch of clothing out on the bed, sorted into colour order, then sifted through [keep, charity, unsure]. It was SO therapeutic – things that I had not worn for ages made a welcome re-appearance and things I had that I did not know did not suit me made a hasty exit. Abbey was so flexible and clever she managed to do this in a couple of hours for each of us before we headed to the shops.
What a treat, Abbey had done a reccy of our local shopping centre and put loads of items behind the counter for each of us. It made the experience fun and efficient! Abbey had laser vision, her “yes that suits/works” and “nope” were wonderful in building our confidence and she remembered things we had in our wardrobes that would match and compliment items we were reviewing in the shops!
The aftermath is I have 8-10 things that I just adore, I feel well dressed, confident, sassy and professional. I also feel very supported and capable of making much better style choices than I have ever done in my life. My wardrobe is colour co-ordinated for the first time ever. I travel a lot for work and packing for my trips since my style makeover has been a dream, I pick outfit that works for the plane, the office, for client meetings and presentations.
Abbey and I have also worked out a way to keep in touch and continue to work on my look [which I love], I have a special ASOS account and she shops into a Wish List for me, I log on, look and choose what to buy – I really feel she knows me, my style and my lifestyle.”
Abbey is great with people and brilliant with style… she is very down to earth and I always feel I can ask her ANY style / fashion related question no matter how small or silly. She is encouraging, supportive and genuinely wants people to feel great about themselves – and she is passionate about using clothing and fashion to achieve this.
