Meeting every day with a positive approach!

Gorgeous Mum and Daughter Avril and Annabel Chaffey came for a joint colour, shape and style consultation. Here Avril tells us about her experience and how things have changed for her since her consultation;

"I'm a freelance PR consultant and spend much of time working in a small rented office but when I do go to meetings I'm dealing with senior management and editors of trade press. I also do the classic 'nothing to wear' thing when it comes to weekend outings and it is often a sense of panic of 'what to wear' when given an invitation to an event.

I booked a Mother and Daughter day with Victoria for a number of reasons; I'm mid 50s and just felt like a needed some guidance about styles and shapes that will be suitable for work and social times. My daughter is a Team GB bobsleigher and spends a great deal of time in sports kit as she trains every day. She lacks confidence in wearing 'normal' clothes and struggles to find things that suit her athletic and powerful body. By the time the appointment date came she was also about to start a job so feeling confident was even more important for her.

From the moment we arrived Annabel and I felt welcomed and at ease. At no time did Victoria make you feel uncertain or wrong. We had lots of laughs which helped us to embrace some of Victoria's ideas and suggestions. I also really enjoyed the second part of the package when we did the trip round the shops and it was great to discover that we had both understood what had been recommended and were starting to identify things for ourselves. I'm looking forward to our next mum & daughter trip out!

The consultation has given me the confidence to see that dresses are right for me and I understand why. Annabel was thrilled to see how accepting some of Victoria's ideas on colour and shape made a real difference to how she looked and more importantly felt.

From now on I will try and be more confident about wearing what is right for me, even if it may be smarter than I would have previously worn but knowing that I look good so will feel better.

We would both recommend a session with Victoria, if you feel good about yourself you are going to meet every day with a more positive approach which can only be good for you and those around you."
