Best experience of 2017…so far!
After attending the seasonal show, which was lead by Lindsay Punch at Casa Rosa in the Autumn I did not hesitate to consider that this lovely lady was the person I wished to share my wardrobe with before buying any more clothes. Her eye for style whilst taking on board where I was in my career and life have been most enriching and the perfect plus experience. She provided good practical advice on how to organise my clothing, take decisions to say ‘good-bye’ to those items, which just take up space or in some cases pass onto an agency.
The whole time – about 4 ½ hours – was immense fun with lots of laughter. I am feeling very confident over what to wear each day and what to purchase in the future. Family, friends and colleagues have already made very favourable comments. Old clothes have been given a new spin. In our very busy lives this has to be a very important investment. Whether getting ready for work or leisure selection of suitable outfit is quick and very satisfying. Her colour advice is most valuable too including choice of accessories and jewellery style and metal.
The icing on the cake was how Lindsay, once she had met and shared my views and looks, managed to provide an extra service. I was attending a public Winter Ball – the dress, ‘out of a comfort zone’ style was a winning result.
I can strongly recommend that anyone tries this experience out with Lindsay – it will be the best way forward. I am planning future sessions for season and special events. Saves a lot of time and disappointment!Pauline, Cotswold's
Thank you so much for last Sunday, I had a really good time and I have worn several items already.
I hope you are not working too hard before the big move. I am absolutely gutted that you are moving after I only just found you! If you are ever back in the area, then I would definitely be interested in another personal shopping trip for the autumn/ winter season.
Thank you again for all your help and if I don’t speak to you before you leave, all the best and good luck with your move.”Anonymous, Berkshire
Last week I had an appointment with Lindsay for a wardrobe restyle, I basically needed to have a massive clear out but I’m totally rubbish at throwing things out. I had a wardrobe full of clothes but felt like I never had anything to wear 🙈
4 bin bag liners later and lots of advice on how to dress for my body shape and what colours compliment my skin tone I’ve got a capsule wardrobe ready for any occasion!
A week after my appointment I received a personalised style guide which summarised all the advice given and pictures of how to mix and match outfits in my current wardrobe – its honestly totally exceeded expectations.
I would recommend Lindsay’s services to anyone, whether like me you need a good clear out, general advice on how to dress for your shape, advice/ inspiration on how to mix and match outfits from your current wardrobe or if your lucky enough to be going on a shopping spree!!!
As much as I love shopping I haven’t bought a single item since our consultation but I can’t wait to hit the shops with all my new found knowledge x
Thank you Lindsay! Looking forward to our next app in February xxGemma, Somerset
I’ve had 2 sessions with Lindsay – a Body Shape and Style Masterclass and then a Colour session. Both sessions were informative and illuminating and Lindsay has definitely given me more confidence to dress for the workplace and out of work.
It was definitely time well spent and Lindsay clearly knows her subject matter. I can’t wait to go shopping g again! Thank you Lindsay!Sam, Oxfordshire
I had a two hour wardrobe restyle with Lindsay.
It was much needed- a busy mum of a toddler and about to turn 30- I wasn’t sure what to wear anymore or what I could pull off now I was a ‘mum’.
Linsday was great- she listened to my likes and dislikes but also helped me to see some of my best features and how to embrace these.
I was slightly ashamed of my wardrobe to begin with but Linsday showed me I do have some nice pieces, plus helped me chuck out a load of rubbish I was holding on to.
I feel like I have a renewed enthusiasm for my clothes, body and identity post baby and feel more confident to put outfits together, and throw away things that aren’t doing anything for me!
My only regret- I should of booked a longer session! Big thumbs up from me! XRachel, Oxfordshire
Lindsay’s knowledge of fashion and style is infectious. She shares bags of information in relatable terms and although some of it you remember having heard over the years, it’s never quite resonated until now. Lindsay has helped me re-evaluate the way I look at myself in the mirror and focus on finding clothes to complement and accentuate my figure.
The only problem is that once you meet Lindsay, you find yourself standing in a changing room thinking ‘what would Lindsay think of this?’ which is a tad bizarre! I thoroughly enjoyed the shape session and look forward to having my colours done and maybe even some personal shopping in the new year!Sarah, Dorset
Lindsay has a wealth of knowledge and a fabulous style. She provides realistic advice and recommendations, helping you to understand what works, what’s not so great and jogs your mind on things you might’ve forgotten.
The only slight problem is that it may take you a while to get dressed for a few days after her session as you realise that you probably shouldn’t wear what you’ve been wearing and you have an overwhelming urge to go shopping!Lizzie, Somerset
I just wanted to say a massive, massive thank you for Tuesday, I thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt so much!
I know it sounds silly but I feel like different person, I’ve been getting my outfits ready the night before and it makes such a difference, I can’t wait to start building up a really fab, versatile wardrobe over time and with your help I know I’ll finally start feeling happy and confident everyday as I walk out the house rather tham praying I don’t bump into anyone and I can’t thank you enough for that.Anonymous, Somerset
‘Having lost 2 stone in weight, I asked my husband for a styling session and colour analysis with Lindsay for my birthday present as I wanted to make the most of my weight loss but didn’t know where to start. I never went shopping because I found it traumatic and would frequently end up in tears in the changing rooms.
Lindsay was just the person I needed. She was friendly and non-judgemental and very quickly put me at ease with her delightful personality and quiet sense of humour. She completely understood that it was a potentially nerve-racking experience and quickly reassured me. She advised me on my shape and colours and helped me to sort out my wardrobe so that it would work in the best possible way for me.
Following the session, I had frequent comments from friends and work colleagues on how lovely I looked and my confidence soared accordingly. Since this session, I have also turned to Lindsay for a personal shopping session and a make up consultation as I completely trust her knowledge and experience on all aspects of fashion and styling.
I cannot recommend or thank Lindsay enough. She has turned this mumsy forty-something into someone who is far more confident about her appearance and, as a consequence, the days of sobbing in the changing-rooms are long gone!Debbie, Oxfordshire
Lindsay’s services are amazing. After having two children, I knew that I wanted to see a personal stylist before I returned to work and I couldn’t have chosen a better one. I had pre-stylist visions of a lovely makeover that I’d stick to for a few weeks before sadly consiging it to the history books as something too difficult to maintain. Not so with Lindsay! Lindsay works with you to find clothes and a style that match your life and your personality. She doesn’t try to turn you into somebody else but helps you to create a wardrobe that you can use everyday.
Lindsay is so knowledgeable about retail that as well as offering great styling services, she also gives you loads of really useful tips about stores, shopping and clothes. She is warm and puts you at ease, and her advice is kind and helpful, not judgemental! Spending a small amount on Lindsay’s services will also save you lots of money in the future. Gone are the days of buying lots of clothes never to be seen again because I don’t like them after one wear or because they don’t go with anything else in my wardrobe. I am now a more confident shopper and feel that the mystery of clothes shopping has finally been unravelled. Thank you Lindsay! XxRachel, Oxfordshire
Just wanted to say thank you again for today! I’m so excited to see all the outfits you’ve put together and already feel more confident knowing what I have on the rails will look good on (providing it all actually fits! 🤣)
It’s not just my wardrobe you’ve overhauled but also my confidence, and for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are truly one of the kindest, loveliest people I’ve met in recent years and I feel very blessed to call you a friend. Xxx
I have recently attended a capsule wardrobe class and a colour analysis class, both great:) I have to say Lindsay is brilliant at what she does, the classes are very informative, I can’t tell you how much I’ve learnt!
It’s given me the confidence and new found knowledge to try lots of new colours and buy from shops I’d never have gone in before and start to create a capsule wardrobe in the colours that are right for me, quite honestly it’s been a revelation!
I can’t recommend Lindsay highly enough:)
Thank you x
I attended The How to Look Good Knackered day in October and had a wonderful time learning all about style, capsule wardrobes, make up and where to buy the basics.
I’ve now changed my make up routine and I’ve been shopping and made a start on the new look me. I’ve still got a lot of shopping to do, but Lindsay has given the massive confidence boost that I needed and a push in the right direction. Thank you!
I didn’t think I was that ‘into’ clothes.
I was quite happy with my vast collection of Joules harbour tops in every colour way!
The thought of seeing a ‘stylist’ scared the living daylights out of me.
Well I was proved wrong!
I can’t believe how much I learned in such a short space of time in my ‘style and shape’ class. I have saved an absolute fortune on bad fashion choices and now know what to invest in. While I will never be able to call a clothes shopping trip enjoyable, I think I may have cracked my joules obsession!
Lindsay is an absolute doll and you will want to take her home…..after you’ve removed a couple of bad choices from your wardrobe!
My 1-1 styling session with Lindsay was amazing. I felt confident about what I was doing well, excited about simple easy ideas to enhance my look and the wealth of amazing information in my personal style guide was stunning.
I can’t recommend her enough – stylish, sensitive, humorous and professional.
I’ll be back for the personal shopping and wardrobe session soon.
Lindsay Punch has an amazing knowledge of personal styling. Lindsay has shown me what colours suit me best, the styles that flatter my figure and how, by mixing and matching items, I am able to create a myriad of differing outfits; all in an extremely friendly and approachable manner.
Her love of clothes is infectious. From now on shopping will no longer be a chore but an adventure. Lindsay Punch you are a star. I love my new look.Jill, Dorset
I have now used Lindsay’s services twice and will use them again!
Lindsay’s knowledge and passion combined with kindness and thought are a brilliant combination. She takes time to listen and takes on board the thoughts and feelings of clients. I used to be incredibly stressed and uncomfortable when shopping and have wasted an awful lot of money on clothes that don’t flatter me/go with anything else. Lindsay works incredibly hard, not only to help identify clothes that work- but to help you understand why they work and what to look out for. This means that I now have a far better shopping experience both with and without Lindsay- and am far less stressed when trying to decide what to wear.
I have entrusted her with my mum, sister and best friend- and think that says it all!”Iona, Oxfordshire
Lindsay is phenomenal! When I first met her, I was instantly struck by how professional, dynamic, unbelievably kind and knowledgeable she is! My time with her was so enjoyable and empowering, I cannot thank her enough!
I had a colour, shape and wardrobe restyle session with her back in December and now, coming into the Spring, I can report that the tips and advice Lindsay gave me absolutely and undoubtedly work. I went from being an under-confident ‘safe’ dresser (totally stuck in a rut!) to suddenly really enjoying creating stylish and workable outfits on a daily basis. Lindsay was hugely practical, taking into consideration my everyday life – she showed me how to look effortlessly stylish regardless of my daily tasks.
I achieved a whole winter wardrobe using mostly revamped clothes, which Lindsay showed me how best to wear and make current, alongside a short shopping list of key items to buy to complete a capsule wardrobe. The formula worked for the whole winter season! My outfits were brought to life, made more stylish and were a joy to wear – I was so taken aback by all the flattering comments from friends and colleagues. The boost to my confidence is invaluable. I no longer feel totally overwhelmed when I go shopping. It’s liberating knowing I will no longer waste hard-earned cash on clothes which I don’t know how to wear or which do not suit me at all. Thank you so much, Lindsay!
Lindsay is an amazing stylist, she really knows her stuff. Her experience really shines through.
We had such an enjoyable morning looking at my colours and going through my wardrobe. It has been quite literally transformed!
More importantly Lindsay has reignited a love of fashion in me that had been lost, I’ve enjoyed shopping since with a renewed sense of who I am and what I want.
I recommend Lindsay highly.”Lizzie, Somerset
Well what can I say. Feeling old, frumpy and stuck in a style rut. That was me but not any more thanks to the brilliant Lindsay. She showed me the way to dress for my body shape and what colours work well for me. I was wrong on both counts! I know have a much better idea of what to wear to flatter my figure. On a plus note , I have never had so many compliments but more importantly I feel more confident again. It has also saved me lots of money in that I’m not buying clothes that don’t work for me anymore.
If you are thinking of booking in with Lindsay……. go for it. You won’t look back xSara, Oxfordshire
I can highly recommend Lindsay. She did a wardrobe weeding exercise for me, and then took me personal shopping. I had fallen out of love with clothes shopping, having put weight on, had a baby then lost weight. I suppose I wasn’t really sure what I should be wearing for my age and change of career. We found some lovely items, and Lindsay made the whole experience actually enjoyable, and it was such a relief to have someone to hand that knows exactly what will suit your body shape and who will be honest about items that aren’t going to flatter you. Lindsay has a vast experience and is very passionate about fashion, and she sure knows The Oracle inside out!”
“Lindsay knowledge of colour, body shape, dressing tips, both current and past trends plus information on what’s available in the shops at the moment was outstanding.
During the session she was able to provide information that is useful now in the late stages of pregnancy plus new mum styling tips and when hopefully my body returns to ‘normal’.
Lindsay was still able to asses my body shape pre pregnancy just by looking at my shape now. Advise on what colours would work with my ‘normal’ skin tone plus I found her very encouraging and down to earth. She has amazing confidence building skills and I left the session feeling very energised, a difficult thing too do with a heavily pregnant lady. I will be booking in the new year for another session once the baby is born. Thank you LindsayCaroline, Oxfordshire
So today I had an afternoon with the lovely Lindsay a very kind and knowledgable lady with am amazing sense of style. Beautiful inside and out … Bit of a girl crush.
Highly recommended and I’m excited to get some life back in my wardrobe and wear more of what suits me and shows off my bod. Oh and find mr right .. Or right now lol!
Thank you lovely ladyNicola, Cornwall
I thought only celebrities could afford a Wardrobe Stylist so I was over the moon when I realised that I could afford to have Lindsay to sort my wardrobe out and my colours! It felt amazing to have someone organise what I already had, into a wardrobe which works by only adding a few key pieces!
Since my wardrobe I have had the pleasure of a makeup session (brilliant) and a group session with work colleagues (so interesting). Lindsay just gets better and better! I can’t wait to have a personal shop one day.Zoe, Wiltshire
I recently used Lindsay for help with my overcrowded wardrobe, we spent a good 4 hours going through my clothes to pick out the best colours, styles and cuts that best suit my shape. As well as it being really fun, Lindsay has reinvigorated my confidence and passion for my clothes, making me see that I do have a fab figure and I should be dressing to show it off.
I also had my colours done at a recent friends party with Lindsay which was really interesting and highly recommend instead of the usual Anne Summers girls night in!
Lindsay made the whole experience extremely fun and I loved every minute of our time together, highly recommended. XShel, Buckinghamshire
Lindsay is simply amazing. She has opened my eyes to a world of colour that would have been out of my comfort zone before our session. Now however, I have a better understanding of what colours suit me and I continue to reveive compliments on my new ‘summer’ coloured wardrobe.
Thank you Lindsay xAlexandra, Berkshire
I had a great session with Lindsay last week which resulted in a wardrobe overhaul – long overdue!!! I feel much more confident in choosing what suits me and feel a little more daring!
Cannot wait to do a personal shopping day at the end of the summer xxBeth, Oxfordshire
Thank you Lindsay,
A wonderful experience having my wardrobe sorted.
Thank you for your expertise and knowledge.
It has boosted my self confidence 100% and given me a better understanding of my colour personality.
I could not recommend this experience enough.
A lovely honest and fun morning.
