“I really needed Carole to come to sort out my wardrobe as I had a lot of clothes and had a real fear of letting go of them including quite a lot of my late Mother’s clothes.
I have a sporty/casual wardrobe but needed a smart look for networking other than my usual trousers and top.
I also needed to look my best for Black tie and more glamourous occasions.
I like good quality clothes in natural fabrics, such as pure cotton and wool.
First Carole very carefully and sensitively helped me to sort through my late Mother’s clothes. Mum had bought a lot of very high-quality items and was always very well turned out. Carole offered to take a lot of these to Cinderella Me for re-loving and I kept a few pieces which suited me. She was very aware of my feelings throughout this process and when I had a “wobble” she was right there for me with her comforting arms.
Next, we went through all my clothes. I got rid of a lot of black which doesn’t really suit me. Carole divided my wardrobe into sections including, work, sport, special occasion, Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter outfits. Carole put together outfits for me which I would never have thought of!
Then we organised my holiday wardrobe as I was going away at the end of that week. In future I will be able to pack my case in no time at all as Carole organised my wardrobe with a specific holiday section.
She also advised me on some of the “gaps” in my wardrobe for example to look for white trousers, a fluid pair and a more fitted pair. One of these I was able to buy in Cinderella Me, and the other I found in my wardrobe which I hadn’t worn for absolutely years!! They still fitted me, and Carole showed me various looks I could achieve using my existing tops.
I now find that I have fewer clothes, but more outfits and I know what to buy and what to avoid.
More than a clearing out of clothes for me was an emotional clearing as well. Every woman needs Carole to “hold her hand” through this process.
Thank you, Carole”
