HI! I'M VICTORIA, AND I RUN FRANKIE & RUBY...

Victoria Lochhead - Personal Stylist

I love being a personal stylist and helping my clients feel more confident in their style choices.  Having been introduced to jumble sales and charity shops from a young age, I show my clients how to look great and feel confident in pre-loved fashion as well as utilising what they already have hanging in the wardrobe at hom.  Read more about our story and what makes a consultation with us a unique experience.....

Learn in Person

One of my favourite mantras is from Marie Forleo "Everything is Figureoutable!"

It's so true, everything is figureoutable, and learning about styles, colours and shapes that suit you is no different.  Nobody takes us aside in school and teaches this stuff, we most often rely on friends, or magazines, or gingerly figuring it out from our own mistakes and triumphs.

But in a few short sessions, I can show you exactly how to figure it out, to find a style you love that feels like you, to have a wardrobe full of choices, and how to do it without spending lots of time at the shops or even buying lots of new clothes.

If you love learning one to one or in small groups, read on for some of the in person sessions we offer.

Personal Colour Session.​



If you want to make immediate changes to the way you look and feel, we always recommend starting with colour analysis. Have you ever seen someone walk past you, & they are just glowing?  They are probably wearing a colour that is perfect for them, and I can do the same for you. 

 

In a one on one session with me, we'll be looking at your natural colouring and skin tone, and you'll discover which colours best work for you, making you look healthier and younger. We can show you which colours make you glow, which colours work as great neutrals for you, & how to put your colours together.  

 

You’ll be given a swatch of your best colours which is a great tool for shopping & for building a coordinated wardrobe. I'll even show you which foundation & lipstick tones are perfect for you – and you’ll see how amazing you look when it all comes together.  

Learn with me one to one:  £170

Learn in a group of 2 or more people:  £135

Personal Style & Shape.​



In this 2 hour session we give you your own unique set of rules for dressing that make the most of your proportions.  

 

Whatever body shape you are, we can teach you which styles will flatter, including all the details & finishing touches, such as necklines, jewellery, shoes, & fabrics, we’ll cover everything so you’ll know exactly what to wear that will suit you.

 

We’ll also explore your unique brand – how you want to come across in your clothes – so that you can start to build on a definitive style that really expresses who you are.  

Learn with me one to one: £160

Learn in a group of 2 or more people £120.

Personal Image Plan



Find out your own unique set of rules in this fun & interactive two part session. In our first session, we'll get to grips with discovering who you are and how you want to express yourself, whether that's in your role at work or your life beyond work.  We’ll go through your colour analysis and make up, followed by your style rules, and suggestions for what to wear.  Then in our second session, I'll show you how to create that image, either from your own wardrobe at home, from examples in my dress agency, from a shopping trip, or from online examples

 

With me there to guide you, you’ll see how the rules work for you to effortlessly create outfits, find things you love, and build your wardrobe of treasures.

Wardrobe Detox 

 

Do you open the wardrobe & utter the immortal words “I have nothing to wear!” We will help you to de-clutter your wardrobe, find new outfits from your existing clothes, & identify a shopping list of what’s missing.

 

Discover how to organize your collection of clothes into coordinated interchangeable outfits, & re-discover all the buried treasure lurking in the back!

 

We’ll hold your hand while you throw out those things you’ve been hanging onto & forgotten why, & we can even help you sell your unwanted clothes, so you can earn cash from your clear out!  £65ph.

 

Personal Shopping.​



Turn a dreaded shopping trip into a positive experience with our help!

 

On a shopping trip with me we'll start with a chat over a coffee, and find out exactly what your requirements are.

 

Just by trying on different styles and ideas you will learn so much about what you love, what suits you and what to avoid in future!  It's an immersive learning experience that means we find the best brands, styles and colours for you.  

And if you loathe the idea of shop changing rooms or have no time for shopping?  Don't worry, you can book an online shopping experience where I trawl the best of pre-loved or new websites to help you find clothes you'll wear and wear and wear.  £65ph.

 

 

 

Charity Shop Days.​



Frankie & Ruby came about from a belief that once you are clear on the colours and styles that suit you, then it's possible to shop anywhere.  And if it's possible to shop anywhere, then why not explore the delights of charity, vintage, and dress agency shopping?  It's the ultimate in fun guilt free shopping; it's great for the planet, it's great for recycling, it's great for the charity, it's great for your pocket, and it's amazing for your confidence levels. 

 

With our list in hand, I'll take you to all the best charity shops & recycling centres, and help you find what you're looking for, as well as perhaps picking out a few things you might not have thought to try on.   With me there to guide you, we'll come up with some amazing bargains that are absolutely perfect for you!  £65ph.

 
Sustainable Style Workshops

Our small group workshops are a great way to start thinking about how to take a more sustainable approach to how you buy and wear your clothes.

In a morning session, you'll be thinking about your style, learning tips on how to make the most of your wardrobe, and come away with some practical ideas on how you can immediately start creating outfits you love.

Workshops happen once a month, so get in touch for the dates and details on how to book.  £45pp
