I wasn’t sure if working with a personal stylist over 5,191 miles would work but after my first call with Emma I had no doubts about working together. She took the time to get to know my likes, dislikes and understand my lifestyle. Working remotely takes more effort and patience than IRL as we relied on Skype, emails and photos but the final results were great. I have over 50 outfits from a capsule number of items and a style bible to help me style them. Plus, I know what to look for by being aware of my body shape. I’m loving my new look as it feels like my authentic self, has made me feel more confident in my style and really excited about my wardrobe again.
“You know when you do something that is a real game changer? Well that is exactly how I felt working with Emma on my wardrobe recharge and online shop. Firstly, she’s someone that I would actively choose to hang out with... she’s funny, kind, smart and extremely talented. My half day flew by and I felt I could be totally myself with her and that she always had my best interests at heart. I approached Emma because I needed some help with my wardrobe and styling. I felt I had lost my way and was wasting so much money on clothes I never really wore. My outfits were samey and I felt stuck in a rut. I would often change outfits 5 times before I went out. I basically wasn’t feeling my style and I really wanted to sort it out.Having worked with Emma the change is enormous. I have a curated, beautiful wardrobe that can be worn together. A clear idea of what colours and styles to stick to and several go to outfits. It has saved me huge amounts of time, money and energy and I get stopped nearly everyday and complimented on what I am wearing. It’s hugely built my confidence and with Emma’s guidance I am loving wearing things I would never have thought to try. I honestly now wake up and feel excited by my outfit choice.... I never thought I would say that. I can not recommend her highly enough. I’ve told all my friends about her. So my advice is do it! You won’t regret it.
“I first came across Emma on social media about 18 months ago. I’ve been stuck in a bit of a style rut for a couple of years and when I started my business rebrand decided it was the perfect time to get some help from someone whose style I really admire. I wanted to ensure every element of my brand reflected who I am.From our first email contact and then phone call Emma made me feel at ease, she listened intently and offered some really insightful thoughts and ideas. Her first mood boards were spot on - totally different from what I would have instinctively chosen but somehow looked and felt right – the perfect antidote to my rut.I travelled from Oxford to Manchester for our shop and had a wonderful afternoon of shopping with Emma. She had done an amazing job of preparing our route around the shops and putting clothes on hold. She was honest and forthright yet gentle and encouraging all day. She made me feel completely at ease whilst taking me totally out of my comfort zone. I felt supported by Emma at every moment. For me our day was not just about the clothes / looks it was about finding a way to express myself fully and Emma understood this and helped me do this expertly.The end result has blown my mind! I now feel stylish and my clothes truly reflect who I am in a way I didn’t realise I could do with my clothes.Emma has truly gone the extra mile being a fantastic sounding board for me when choosing the outfits for events mixing my new clothes with ones I already have in my wardrobe. This is just the start of what I’m sure will be a wonderful partnership!
Crave Personal Styling is a game changer. After a change of career and a long bout of ill health I found myself clueless and pretty styleless in my early 40’s. Add to this my strong dislike of shopping and I was truly stuck in a rut. Emma is a breath of fresh air. There’s no doubt she’s fab at her job but what I love most is her gentle yet confident, passionate approach to women looking and feeling great. Emma has completely shifted my mindset to clothes. I know my colours, shapes, fabrics, lengths and more. I’m equipped with a list of key pieces for work, pleasure and evening that I can invest in over time. I bought items I wouldn’t have even looked at previously and colours I didn’t think I could wear. The best part; my wardrobe is smaller, neater, co-ordinated and I’m genuinely chuffed every day when I open it. Getting ready is easy, whatever the occasion. The whole experience has been hugely empowering.
Emma has really helped see my shape and my wardrobe options in a very different light. I am now much more confident when shopping alone; knowing what colours and shapes suit me. You don’t have to spend a fortune to look great and on-trend. Emma has helped me develop a ‘capsule wardrobe’ which includes staple pieces to wear to create different looks for both business and at weekends. I have also had so many compliments as well!
