“Style is more than what you wear, it’s about telling your story”
My name is Teresa! For me fashion and style are more than just an interest, it’s a passion that has developed and grown over many years which ultimately led me to becoming a stylist. There are many aspects of fashion and styling that inspire me, from the freedom it allows people to express themselves, to the beauty and creativity it provides, and how it can transform a woman’s confidence and well-being.
Growing up well into my forties, I struggled with low self esteem and acceptance of my style and identity, so feel that my personal experiences has given me the insight to understand and identify with the many style issues women face, especially as we age and experience changes in our body shape and self-confidence. As a mature age stylist, I have helped many older women with their style needs and know firsthand how social pressures and self- judgement can influence what we wear and how we look.
Personal style is different for each person and each body, and there is definitely no one style that fits all. I firmly believe that style is achievable for everyone regardless of age, size, status or lifestyle, and helps you to express your own sense of self. There are no rules or restrictions to style except for the ones we tend to place on ourselves. For me, style is more than what you wear, that it’s more about how the clothes you wear make you feel and how important it is to feel comfortable and happy within yourself, and is why I am passionate about encouraging and empowering women with finding their own style.
Fashion doesn’t stay the same, and neither does our style needs and preferences, especially from age 40 when our body shape may have changed from having children, from changing career and lifestyles, and when busy and demanding lives can sometimes make us feel invisible, insignificant and uninspired, rather than feeling confident and empowered to tell our own story.
I’m here to guide and inspire women to navigate through all the noise and confusion with dressing and shopping and provide you with the confidence to wear the clothes that flatter your body shape and most of all, to help you feel great about yourself and what you wear for every occasion to be your best self.
When it comes to knowing how to dress and shop with confidence, you really can’t put on price on investing in yourself. Whatever your specific styling needs, I’ve got you covered!
