Butterfly Image Consultancy – Changing Self Perceptions!

Having won a Style Consultation at the WI Christmas Raffle, I met with Victoria of Butterfly Image Consultancy  in her studio in Lubenham, just a short 5-minute drive from Market Harborough. Victoria was very welcoming and once we were settled over a cup of tea, she asked questions to find out my style personality, what parts of my body I felt comfortable about (and what not!), and the type of famous personality I identified my look with. It emerged that I tend towards the Natural style, with a bit of Classic and a sprinkling of the Dramatic!

Victoria then advised all the different types of shapes of clothes that were best suited to my body shape and tailored this to how confident I feel about different parts of my body. She gave excellent advice on how to use colour and accessories to brighten and lift every day outfits as well as giving guidance on work wear, evening wear and everyday clothes choices. Victoria also identified which shops would best suit my style and she recommended specific items of clothing that would most suit me. I was relieved to find out that I didn’t have to try to remember all of Victoria’s suggestions as she noted down everything as we went along. I was also given a tailored advice sheet on how to develop a capsule outfit and a diagram showing ideal necklines and sleeve, coat and hem lengths.

It was a really enjoyable and interesting consultation. Victoria gave me a fresh pair of eyes on how I view myself and I feel confident about trying out some different styles of clothes. Victoria also offers colour and makeup consultations. Ladies, if you’d like to feel more confident about your clothes choices, I recommend that you have a look at the website and get yourself booked in!
