Magic Results from The Wardrobe Angel – Testimonials: New Mum
Feeling better about how we look just helps with everything else, doesn’t it?
I heard you talk at Chapel Pie WI and knew straight away that you’d be the person to help me get my ‘style mojo’ back. I had a baby in November 2013 and in the life-changing experience of becoming a Mum I had lost track of prioritising myself along with my personal style and my love of clothes.
I LOVED the session and felt totally re-inspired. You started straight away piecing together items from my own wardrobe and I was so excited to see my own clothes put together in a different and stylish way.
My sense of self has soared since our session. I’m back in love with clothes and with style and fashion and that has spread into others areas of life where I’d lost my way. Feeling better about how we look just helps with everything else, doesn’t it? You’ve definitely given me a new lease of ‘style life’: I now wear jumpsuits, culottes, red shoes, a chunky knit pink cardigan etc rather than just jeans and a top!
You absolutely exceeded expectations. You started me off on a style journey that I then felt brave enough to follow on my own. I’d always been known for my clothes and style and it’s so lovely to be the ‘real me’ once again – even my 3 1/2 year old comments on my outfits now!!!

Rediscover YOUR style mojo
What I really love since you visited me and my wardrobe is that I really love nearly everything in my wardrobe and totally get why I bought each piece, now that I’m thinking so differently about putting it together. Family kept commenting about my outfits while we were away on holiday and I definitely feel I’ve rediscovered my style mojo, so thank you so much again!
Thank you so much for the brilliant follow up which I’ve gradually been digesting; there’s so much great stuff to take in. After telling you about feeling overwhelmed by Asos I’ve sort of got the hang of the website now and have spotted some great stuff on there. I’ve checked out a couple of the blogs you recommended and they’re great. The Shopping Lists for ‘work’ and ‘casual’ you wrote for me are so spot on (thank you) and summarise everything we chatted about.
Thank you so much again Stephanie.

Improve your relationship with your body
I have never liked my body and since having my little girl my relationship with my body has deteriorated so the idea of trying on clothes in front of someone I didn’t know was daunting. Needless to say I was very nervous before you arrived! I also don’t like change and although there was a lot in my wardrobe that I didn’t wear/couldn’t wear I was scared to get rid of them. I was worried you would get rid of everything. You didn’t!
I loved both days (the wardrobe sort and the personal shop), but my gosh you have stamina; I was shattered! I think immediately I had a sense of oh gosh what have I done (but this is me normally) once the irrational fear had subsided and I thought logically I felt fabulous and knew that I was better off for doing it. You totally met and exceeded my expectations.
I have learnt more about how to dress for my body shape. I have felt much more confident at work because I feel good and I am happier at picking outfits for occasions. My wardrobe is all organised and I feel so much more relaxed about it. Thank you.

New Mum back to work worries? Not with Wardrobe Angel!
I’m a new mum. My baby was 10 months old at the time of calling Steph and I was going back to work very soon! I wanted to feel me again – a confident working mum but I had no idea what to do or where to start! I heard about this ‘angel’ called Steph through a friend who had used the Wardrobe Angel before.
I absolutely LOVED the day – I really did. Talk about a cleansing experience. I’m embarrassed to say there were some beauties in my wardrobe. Some up to 15 years old probably! I wouldn’t say I’m a hoarder……but clearly I had some issues with getting rid of certain things – I think we all do really don’t we??!! Steph was brilliant at sorting through both my wardrobes. She knew that she wanted to create a capsule wardrobe for me and there was NO messing about! It was ace – just what I needed – almost like someone giving you permission to LET IT GO!! My capsule wardrobe began to materialise before my eyes – who knew I actually had quite a bit of stuff already?! I felt amazing after Steph left – READY FOR ACTION – WORK?……BRING IT ON!!
After Steph left I felt epic. I felt confidant and ME again. Exactly the objective I had set out to achieve. Sometimes you just need a little bit of hand holding don’t you – no matter how old you are, (I’m 39) I’d done my MAT leave & tried to be a yummy mummy – now it was time to be work me again. I’ve learnt that less is more. As long as you have key pieces in your wardrobe – you can accessorise for so many different looks. I feel great every time I look in my wardrobe now, knowing that I am going to look & feel amazing. Even my Dad commented on the skirt I was wearing the other day, saying he liked it – GO DAD!
I’m rubbish at using Pinterest, so Steph customised a wicked mood board for me. She’s put so much effort into it which I really appreciated. It was MOST useful!
Thanks so much Steph and I will definitely be in touch again next year for whatever part 2 looks like!

Fall in love with your wardrobe again
My Wardrobe Angel experience was a gift from my husband, found by my sister after she did some research – I had been looking at getting a bit of a wardrobe update after having my daughter 19 months ago but found it really hard to shop like used too because of time restraints! The session was amazing! Putting together clothes I already had in a different way – banishing leggings! (still not a pair worn since you left!) just so much fun! Apart from that, learning how to mix and match more pieces from wardrobe, not being afraid to mix and match patterns and textures – wearing clothes back to front! And I think the main thing for me is falling in love with my wardrobe again – I had fallen into a bit of a trap and now back to my old self and having fun with fashion again, experimenting more and rediscovering pieces that had been tucked away at the back of the wardrobe. I’d book you for longer next time ….or if you could move next door that would be great!

Yummy Mummy YOUR wardrobe!
The Wardrobe Angel is a fab service. Stephanie helped me clear out my wardrobe which had seen me through 3 pregnancies, identifying what to keep and what was rubbish. Putting together a series of outfits, she has made getting dressed in the morning much simpler, ensuring I can leave the house without looking like I’ve been dragged through a hedge backwards! She definitely knows how to put the yummy mummy into any wardrobe. The service was amazing. Thank you.

Have fun with YOUR wardrobe again
I can’t thank you enough for sorting me out! I feel much happier with the way I look now and more confident putting outfits together. I feel like my old self again (the person I was pre-children!) – dressing up and having fun doing it!

Great clothes give you confidence!
As a teenager I always felt that clothes are part of your identity and I had completely lost that feeling since having my son but since the session I have felt more like me again. Actually, even BETTER because I feel more confidant than I ever did! The session with you was so much more than choosing clothes. It was about BEING ME AGAIN and getting out of that rut and getting the confidence to feel trendy again. Thank you!!

No stress dress for work
I’ve already taken my items to get altered – thanks for rescuing them. I wore one of the outfits you put together (the monochrome and silver combo) for work last week and got loads of positive comments. The Capsule Work Wardrobe document has really helped me plan my work outfits and reduced the getting dressed stress in the morning of me and 3 kids to get out of the door.

Style never stops
Thank you so much for my wardrobe session. It was, in your words, awesome! I’ve got a meal out on Saturday and a weekend away – I can’t wait to throw on some of the outfits you put together! You’ve really helped my post pregnancy/motherhood style!

Excellent Value for Money
I knew I needed help as I had gone from wearing suits everyday to being a mother of two toddlers, I was still wearing some of my maternity clothes and was slipping into a lazy mum uniform. After speaking to Stephanie on the phone I was really excited about my appointment. I really understood how I wanted to be. That excitement has really stayed with me, I have a much stronger idea of how I want to dress and have been able to go shopping knowing exactly what I am looking for. I have spent less money on better clothes. The after service is brilliant with the photos and the money back from all the clothes sold. I will be getting Stephanie back to look at my summer wardrobe as I feel her service is not only a wonderful treat that gives you a sense of your own style but also excellent value for money.

Happy to help!
You have given me back my mojo!

What do you need YOUR wardrobe to do?
Not only was I in the midst of a fashion crisis of confidence when I met Stephanie, but I had also discovered that I was pregnant and so needed a wardrobe to see me through the nine months in style. What I found fantastic was that she really took the time to get to know me and my style in advance. By re-accessing my existing wardrobe I started to see my old clothes in a totally new light and now I’m loving wearing them again in ways that I would never have thought of before Stephanie came into my life! I’ve only actually had to buy a few new key pieces that were recommended on my shopping list, so it didn’t break the budget to feel as if I’d got a brand new fabulous wardrobe!

New baby, new mum, new body! Dressing and shopping for a different shape post-pregnancy
Stephanie introduced me to the wonders of layering. She found me a fantastic dress in the French Connection sale that can be dressed up and down. I love it! Every time I wear it I get loads of compliments.
