A Personal Stylist Secret!
What if I told you we could create a SENSATIONAL outfit from what you already own?
You probably wouldn’t believe me, right?
As a Sydney personal stylist, what shocks me is how little my clients value their purchases and think they will need to throw everything out and start again.
However, it’s usually the opposite!
I pride myself as a fashion stylist in being able to optimise your current closet and breathe new life in to it and this is what sets me apart from other personal stylists.
It’s amazing when you see your old clothes through the new eyes of a professional personal stylist!!
Hear how my clients felt when they discovered this:-
” Kim has amazing ability to combine random pieces of clothing and create great outfits from them. All from what I already had! ” – Outi Mustonen
” Kim is awesome! Reconditioning my wardrobe and coming up with ‘looks’ I didn’t even realise I had in there! ” – Kerri Dougan
” Kim is extremely talented. I was gobsmacked at how many great outfits she created from my mish mash of clothes in my wardrobe!! ” – Mita Das

I’m Actually The Opposite To Most Personal Stylists!
Unlike what most people expect from a personal stylist, I’m not going to give you a huge list of designer clothes to go and buy, in fact quite the opposite!

I suggest affordable brands as it’s this mid-market sector I have been designing for all my career and so I’ve become a bit of an expert in understanding the best of what they offer!:-
A Bit About My Personal Styling Services:
>I suggest alterations to gives your clothes a makeover as shown above. The more clothes flatter, the more you wear them, reducing your cost-per-wear
>Recommend you wear the same clothes, but in a different way (ie. heavy shirts worn as lightweight jackets or the grey dress/top photo below)
>Teach you how to incorporate more ‘special’ items in to your every day wear to get more use out of them as I believe our days are just as important as our nights, as I explain in my Mummy Makeover Sydney page
I’m A Sustainable Fashion Stylist
All the above helps to create a more sustainable wardrobe. I support the slow fashion movement, hence why I dress my clients in contemporary classics that last way beyond one season.
The whole ethos of StyleSense is to purchase with purpose
I regularly shop in op-shops and wear second hand fashion and have done since I was a teenager when I realised I could bag a totally unique item for less than a tenner! Recycling clothes and accessories by re-purposing them keeps them out of landfill whilst bring me joy – a win-win!!
Take a look at my INSTAGRAM for more ways I style my numerous charity shop finds.
Personal Stylist = Personal Style
The value I add as a personal stylist is to advise you on both WHAT to wear, and HOW to wear it, which is largely influenced by your personal style.
Two clients can wear exactly the same outfit but look very different because of HOW they are wearing it.
This starts the beginning of your personal brand..
Often clients wear the right clothes but in the wrong way and just need a little tweak with fit, balance or proportion like this example below, to make the whole outfit work and this is where the 1-on-1 styling advice is invaluable.
BODY TYPE has a huge part to play in exploring what you feel most comfortable in as some styles will flatter us more than others which defines our personal style, to read more about BODY SHAPE click here.
Finding Your Fashion Style
Fashion trends will come and go, but personal style is an attitude, it’s inherent and something I IDENTIFY, EMBRACE & ENHANCE. I am not about trying to dress you like any body else, only like the best version of yourself – I help you find YOUR clothes style.
Personal styling is part art and part science! There are numerous personality styles but every client will have their own take on what they feel most comfortable in and that’s why I can only workshop your wardrobe with your honest input.
” Kim completely got my sense of style and what I was looking for – she completely nailed it – above and beyond all expectations. I absolutely love my new wardrobe!! “ – Sarah-Luisa McAneney
How We Evolve YOUR Personal Style
This is my IMAGE CONSULTANT client who had grown out of the grey dress she used to wear, it was too short, not the right shape for her body type and no longer represented her personal style.
A Stylist Re-Styles!
However, it was still a good classic piece and I hate waste, so I re-purposed it as a top and re-styled it with more contemporary items to suit her new, more sophisticated personal style.
Much improved and no sewing involved!
Throughout the WARDROBE MAKEOVER, I will suggest new fashion styles that compliment your Sydney lifestyle and give fashion advice on how best to wear them, it’s up to you whether you adopt them as for certain people, a certain outfit might be in ‘phase 2’ of their makeover, depending on their level of confidence.
As a stylist, I like to give you some thing aspirational to aim for!
Personal Fashion Advice
Ultimately I want you to have more fun with fashion and using the colour & body shape guidelines I create means you can do so, but in a safe way!
My personal style advice includes what to invest in but also what to minimise which is equally as important. Some clients stick to their style guide 100% where as others feel more confident to be a little more experimental.
It doesn’t take a huge effort to make a huge style impact.
My philosophy as a personal stylist is to make small changes with the biggest impact!
Personal Online Stylist
Although I am a personal fashion stylist based in Sydney, I offer an ONLINE STYLIST SERVICE to regional or overseas clients. I give fashion advice on their new personal image for the new job they might have relocated for, how to dress for their new environment and culture as well as a remote PERSONAL SHOPPER selecting new pieces from local or international brands.
Because I have lived in 4 different countries and traveled extensively for work (and for pleasure) I have acquired a fantastic understanding for global style and cultural expectations.
My styling services know no borders!
