Nicola says "Our body image does not just relate to our physical characteristics but in modern society, how we look is inextricably linked with who we are. I’m not saying this is how it should be, but to a huge extent, many women literally do keep defining themselves by how they look, and if they feel like they are ‘falling short’ to their perception of how they ‘should’ look, all of their successes and good qualities can be momentarily forgotten, whilst looking in the mirror."
In addition to this Nicola also finds that a lot of women know how to do either 'style' or 'functionality' with their wardrobes, but find it very difficult to combine the two in to practical, modern, stylish outfits that reflect their tastes and personality.
Yes! Nicola has developed and perfected a number of style advisory services that means that together with her team of elite stylists, she can help women to see the best version of themselves every day through practical, functional, stylish outfits that reflect modern trends.
The benefits go far beyond the wardrobe and mirror though, as Nicola finds that the services give clients emotional and mental benefits too, such as increased confidence, an open mind in terms of fashion and shopping, inspiration and focus. Not to mention less time wasted when it comes to getting dressed or shopping; less money wasted on clothes never worn and reduced clutter in the house!
Nicola is on a mission to positively transform women's wardrobes nationwide and help many more women to benefit from her style secrets.
Unlike other image consultancy services, My Style Companion does not do colour analysis, but DO help women to learn that looking and feeling fabulous, can be easy, practical, cost-effective and fun with the right knowledge and assistance. My Style Companion doesn't pigeon hole clients but works with them on a personal level to understand how clothes need to work for their life, body and confidence levels for long lasting positive changes with their wardrobes.
