With my experience as a BBC fashion stylist, it was an easy choice for The Mall shopping centre to select me as personal stylist to give their competition winner a personal shopping trip with make-over. Mary entered a competition and won the prize of £200 of Mall gift vouchers plus, £50 of Blue Inc vouchers.
Our day started with a chat over coffee in The Mall centre to get to know Mary, her style and what she needed to add to her wardrobe for this season. Mary admitted her style had been lost lately as she placed more importance on keeping warm and her recent studies; she now had to think about what to wear to her impending graduation ceremony and didn’t have anything appropriate for the special occasion. She didn’t want to wear a dress as she felt most people would be dressed as such and she wanted to be a bit different so I suggested a stylish trouser outfit.
After we shopped in H&M for her jacket and trousers, kitten heel shoes and top from Peacocks, I took her to Debenhams where I had booked her an appointment to have her make-up applied professionally by Bare Minerals. See her before and after photos and let me know if you love her new look too!
She loved the results so much, she bought the outfit and a shirt for her husband (ah lovely) and our story even made it to the Luton Herald newspaper. Here’s the link to the article:
