I'm very lucky to be working with some amazing and inspirational women.  Here some of them share their thoughts on their experiences with Frankie & Ruby...

Margaret says.......

“Victoria Lochhead has been an absolute saviour. Victoria was so gentle with me and so enlightening. If Victoria can make me feel and look good, then she really can help anyone” 

Sarah says.......

“I enjoyed all of it, I really saw the difference colours make” 

Tracey says.......

“I couldn’t believe how successful the day was.  Not only did I end up with some great clothes, I also managed to get some labels, like Jigsaw and Ghost, that I love.  Everything was in the perfect colour and style for me, thanks to Victoria’s expert eye and I have to say, for someone who doesn’t much like shopping, I loved the experience.  Victoria is patient and really fun to be around.  I would recommend this experience to anyone who is either unsure about what they look good in or who wants gorgeous labels on a budget.  Victoria is a master at making you look and feel good about yourself.”

Case Study 1: Shopping day with Margaret

Margaret is a busy mum and business owner.  We had a fantastic day together, and she was very open minded about the idea of our eco-shopping trip!  Here’s what she has to say; “Unlike most women, I dislike being a slave to fashion and don’t like shopping for shoes and clothes.

Case Study 3:
Shape rules with Michelle

Michelle Bailey is business owner at People Essentials, providing employee engagement surveys and HR support for SME’s. Michelle says “My work is extremely varied, I want to look professional, but also feel comfortable in what I am wearing every day.”

Claire says.......

“This session has unleashed the inner me! I feel more confident, enjoy colours more & wear clothes that make me look great!”

Anita says.......

“I would recommend the experience and the lovely way we were treated by Victoria.”

Michelle says.......

“I really enjoyed the day, it was very relaxed, and learning about the rules I should stick to for dressing was a real eye-opener for me. This experience has been really good fun, what is more, I have learned some new skills that I will be able to use when out shopping from now on.  I’m really pleased with the things we bought and wouldn’t rule out shopping in this way in the future. I caught my refection in a shop window the day after our shopping trip and my legs were definitely longer.“

Case Study 2: Day out with Tracey

As anyone who runs their own business will know, success does not come easily.  Tracey Miller, confidence performance coach and owner of Bigger Brighter Bolder, was extremely busy running her business, and did not have time to think about clothes or shopping.

Case Study 4:
Jo's Style Day - the interview!

Joanne is a 33 year old mum of two who lives in Milton Keynes.  She runs her own business home boarding peoples dogs.  Joanne came to Frankie & Ruby about two years ago for a colour analysis and has returned for a style and shape session.  Here’s what she had to say about her experience.

Case Study 5:
Alisons Eye Opener!

After visiting Frankie & Ruby for a full day’s consultation, professional voice over artist Alison Sweatman, tells us about her eye opening experience!  She says "Other people are beginning to notice the change in me, and it feels really positive and makes me feel much more confident."
