with you. I
was so excited when I got home, headed straight for my wardrobe,
took everything out and "interviewed" each piece one by one. I
now have a very organised wardrobe with only garments that do me
I managed to go shopping yesterday - oh you would
have been so proud of me! I did exactly what we did when
we were together, interviewed each garment, tried on what was worth
trying on and bought what passed all the tests. I have been
wearing my new garments and invested in a new lip pencil and lipstick
(so many positive comments from clients).
I am looking at colour
with new eyes - am feeling
really confident about my colours. Bought a
fab scarf - in all my colours - I just love." - Liz, Glendowie.

I had dared to hope and everything got the thumbs up from my husband
and my daughter - whose surprise that you do know what you were
talking about made me smile!
I love my handbag - just the right size
and the strap is really comfortable.
I went shopping on my own today
and understood why certain garments were not right, So instead of
coming out feeling despondent and 'why
can't I ever find anything?' - I knew what the problem was and
felt confident that I would be able to find something that did
look nice." - Melanie, Castor Bay

again." - Judy, Takapuna.

on what suits me.” - Anne-Marie, Remuera

loved your general ideas, but also your small tips along the way,
e.g. the "how-to-iron-a-collar" tip....heavens I should
know that by now!!...it's always amazing how much there is to learn
in life!” - Peggy, Hamilton
“I wore my suede jacket for every seminar I
did on my trip and just recently in California. I really love it

your specifications. I can’t thank you enough and hope we
can go shopping again." - Jane Iredale, California, USA
“I feel much more confident about what I need to do and am
even looking forward to going shopping this weekend. This was just
what I needed to take myself in hand – it made me realise
how little time I actually spend thinking about me. It was wonderful
to meet you. You have a wonderful job. It must be so positive to
help people to feel good about themselves.”
- Pam, Takapuna
“I really appreciated your emphasis that it's
not about how much you spend on clothes but what you do with them.
I also liked the 'small' tips like the bra/hair tie/lip gloss etc.
I can see those seemingly small things will make quite a difference.” -
“We would like to thank you once again for
the great two days we spent with you. We both thoroughly enjoyed
the experience, you were just wonderful in the way you made shopping
painless and stress free.” - Julie, Taumaranui
“Was thinking about what we bought and what
we did not. Several things you suggested (with all your expertise)
I balked at initially, BUT after due consideration, could see what
you were getting at, how you were changing my views on some things.....
very good. For instance, the necklace - you found and kept it in
your little hot hand, quietly suggesting that it would, in one go,
provide several outfits with a necklace, given the different colours.
I did not initially like it, BUT "after due consideration".....etc.
Well done Susan. All this to say, that I did so enjoy our day. You
are good company, as well as a very good guide. AND you are very
efficient.” - Peggy, Westmere

It is just what she wanted.” - - Deb, Parnell

as Miss Auckland and for myself.” - Tamara Glynn, Miss Auckland

time and I love the clothes - they will be perfect for my trip.
There is no way I could have got such nice things and so quickly
without your help.” - Sam, Remuera
“I’m amazed at how much better I feel
about myself. I feel in more control – it has had quite a
flow on effect with my self esteem. I found you very warm and approachable
and that I could totally trust your judgment. So thank you for that.” -
“Saturday morning was such a learning curve
for me – thank you. It was fun and I learned an awful lot.
I should have done it years ago!! I could not believe when we went
shopping we got an entire season’s wardrobe. I had been to
the same shops a few days earlier and did not even see the clothes
you so wisely selected for me.” - Linda, Devonport.
“Thanks so much for Thursday - I really enjoyed
the time I spent with you. I appreciated the advice you gave me
and that you really listened to what I wanted from the time and
that you took that on board. It helps that you're an easy person
to relate to”. - Rachel, Sunshine Coast
“Between having you and
a wedding planner I think I must have had one of the
lowest stress weddings in history! All we had to do was turn
" All clients I have referred to Susan have
valued her non-judgmental and sensitive approach. They have reported
significant increases in self confidence as the result of Susan’s
advice and assistance with their wardrobes and grooming. They
have also reported reduced stress about day to day decisions
about what to wear. The positive feedback from others about their
appearance has also been a factor in their increased confidence.
" - Dr. Suzanne Blackwell, Clinical Psychologist

me- I feel so much more confident and more in control when I am shopping now. I so enjoyed my time I spent with you Susan- you made me feel really
good about myself and you are a very giving person. Thank you for your inspiration and motivation.” -
“I was thrilled with my new purchases yesterday.
I feel like a new woman! You are very clever to be able to so quickly pick out things that
will suit. I am delighted with the sunglasses, and great that I did not have
to spend heaps of money. I really had no idea at all what suited me, so great to learn from
the expert. Worth every penny it was, next time I feel the need
to clothes shop I will employ your services again.” Judy,
“ Thank you for today. It was great fun and very positive and self affirmative.” Olivia,
Mum and I just wanted to send
a huge THANK-YOU from the both of us. We have already sorted
through our wardrobes. It’s great that
we can discuss why things do and don’t work. We both really enjoyed the session- but more importantly both learnt a lot and feel more confident in choosing clothes and wearing things that we know will feel good.” -
Marie and Anna, Rotorua
“I got a lot out of the consultation and thoroughly enjoyed
it. When I went shopping I found it is now a totally different shopping
experience. Having a focus and knowing exactly what to look for
made the shopping more pleasurable, especially as it’s something
I don’t really enjoy that much.” - Juliet, Whangarei
“I trusted Susan completely for wardrobe and
style advice and was delighted with the outcome. Her friendly, unintrusive
service saves time, avoids costly mistakes and represents excellent
value. My wife and I were delighted with the result of your efforts
and I have received many positive comments in the workplace.” -
Mike Dennehy, MD Vision Computing, Mt Maunganui.

and am excited to wear the new creations. Thank you for making this
such a wonderful experience – you are great to work with.” -

with pieces in my wardrobe.” - Jane, Howick.
“Thank you for your knowledgeable and commonsense
approach to my wardrobe needs.” - Wayne, Devonport.

session. Those little tips you shared with me are invaluable –
confirmation of things I was half aware of has made a difference.
I now look at my wardrobe in a new light.” - Jacquie, Remuera.
“I feel I have a better understanding of my
body shape and what I am looking for to compliment it. I enjoyed
your relaxed style and appreciated your being able to visit.”
- Lesley, Westmere.
“I hadn’t felt so good in clothes for
a long time. I felt confident, relaxed and knew I could mix and
match what I’d bought and achieve different looks. The best
part was I didn’t even have to look through the clothes racks
and I wouldn’t have chosen any of the clothes Susan selected,
and I loved everything she chose.” - Debbie, Cambridge.
“The day after I saw you, I stepped inside
a shop and knew what to buy, it was absolutely wonderful.”
- Glenys, Birkenhead.

choice of lipstick and accessories made to me in a couple of hours.
The improvement was instanteouos.” - Chris, Melbourne
“I must tell you how I felt after reading
the article in Sunday Star Times "do ya think I'm sixty?"
I immediately thought that I must tell Susan that thanks to her
I certainly don't feel sixty. All my lovely gorgeous clothes that
I have so much fun with and which always make me feel so young and
confident - there's no "frumpsville" for me!” -
Jan, Campbells Bay.
