    ‘Getting up the next morning (following the wardrobe edit) and being able to put into practise the process Sally described of selecting the first garment, and the way she arranged my wardrobe meant I could easily find the next pieces. Knowing that they all suited me and made the best of my shape gave me so much more confidence'.

    'Thankyou Sally for a wonderful day of shopping. I usually detest shopping and avoid it at all costs, but shopping with you took all the stress away! I am so pleased with all my purchases and not once did I feel pressured to buy anything. All my pieces mix and match effortlessly- something I'd never have been able to do on my own. My partner can't believe the change in not only my appearance, but my entire attitude and confidence. Thanks Sally for bringing joy to clothes shopping!'

    Sarah 36, Glen Iris

    ‘I thoroughly enjoyed the Wardrobe Edit and Personal Shopping experience with Sally Mackinnon. After the birth of my first child, I needed help creating easy day-to-day choices from my wardrobe and assistance in future purchases that would compliment my existing pieces. The whole experience was very relaxed as Sally helped me understand what worked for me. After receiving my style plan, we went shopping and now I feel more confident in my clothing choices. I have recommended the experience to all my friends as it has been so helpful to me'.

    ‘It was great to let go of some of those old clothes, as well as get some ideas on new ways to update/modernise my existing pieces. Sally was very professional and gave good advice as to what are my most flattering styles. A fun, "cleansing" experience. Now that I am armed with my style plan I can't wait to hit the shops'.

    'I found my consultation with Sally very valuable in sorting out what I should be looking for when I make clothing choices. I liked your sensible and supportive down to earth approach. Now the dead wood is gone I can start putting together a versatile and interesting wardrobe without being weighed down by the ghastly and expensive mistakes of previous years. I've previously found choosing clothes very stressful but I'm really looking forward to the shopping expedition with you to learn how to put the new ideas into practice. Thank you very much'.

    Fiona, Bayswater

    I had a brilliant day & Sally knew exactly what she needed for me & where to go. I learnt I'm perhaps not as big on the top as I always thought & need to stop grabbing my ‘standard size'. I learnt what necklines suit, what length tops I needed, what style of jeans to look for & what work pants were best. I bought a lot of clothes that could all be swapped & matched together & it took half the time it would take me to buy one garment! Sally was very generous in her time & I never felt rushed.
    Thank you & best regards'.

    Linda 43, Surrey Hills

    ‘I have often thought of getting some help with my wardrobe and when I saw Sally's ad & website I rang with just a little bit of trepidation - what would she think of my clothes, would I have anything worth keeping! However as soon as I met Sally, I knew I had done the right thing. After having twins and returning to work part time my wardrobe was in need of a fix, not only has my figure changed but my needs had too. I thought I had nothing to wear but I was totally amazed that there were clothes in there worth keeping and not only that Sally showed me how to wear them in a way that was flattering to my figure and that I didn't need to hide behind clothes since having the kids. With only a few things to buy on my shopping list to compliment what I have and a heap of clothes to donate to charity (some which I hadn't worn in 3 years) my wardrobe whilst smaller has more outfits in it than I ever thought. Thanks Sally, it was 3 hours absolutely well spent and I look forward to going shopping with you for summer clothes'.

    Janet 57, Mt Evelyn

    ‘At last I feel I have an understanding of my body and how to dress. I really needed someone who could see me without the ‘stuff' I had about myself. I also needed assistance sorting my wardrobe, throwing away stuff and organising it. I'd been putting it off for a long time not knowing where to start and feeling unsure about some of my clothes. I'm actually excited about shopping for some new clothes and feel so much clearer and more creative. Thanks Sally for your honesty and your gentleness'.

    ‘I had a great day shopping with Sally. It was really nice to get a professional and positive opinion about what looks good on me. Sally is a really lovely person, very easy going and made me feel at ease all day. I now feel more confident shopping by myself after listening to her wonderful hints & tips! I would have no hesitation in recommending Sally for anyone looking for help with improving their wardrobe!'

    Mandi 29, Footscray

    ‘You never get a second chance to make a first impression. I was starting a new job and wanted to make sure the impression I made was a good one. My wardrobe needed a serious clean-out and with Sally's help I was able to throw out some of those old clothes that I just didn't have the will to part with (I took five bags to Savers!). We hit DFO with a list of staples and I came away with a fabulous new wardrobe. For the first time since I can remembered I opened my wardrobe on the weekend and thought with anticipation “what am I going to wear?”, instead of “I have nothing to wear”. Sally really helped me to define my personal style and dress around those trouble spots. Thanks!'

    Cyndi 33, Moorabbin

    'I noticed that my wardrobe was very drab, boring and not very flattering for my body type. I was very confused as to what body type I had and how I could use my existing wardrobe to enhance my good features and hide my flaws. A good friend of mine mentioned Styled by Sally. Although I was very nervous to have a stranger go through my wardrobe, I quickly relaxed and felt very at ease. Sally used my existing wardrobe to suggest a few simple changes and recommend a few alternative things to buy.
    I am now aware of some simple and inexpensive alternatives to my existing wardrobe. I am also more aware of what styles and cuts of clothes look better on my body type. My individual style plan has now become my 'shopping bible'. I have renewed confidence in the types of clothes I wear and how I look. I will definitely be considering meeting up with Sally again during a shopping excursion. Thank you Sally for a great day!'

    'My wardrobe was so jam packed with unworn bargains I didn't know what was in there! Sally was fantastic in helping me clear out the outdated and badly fitting outfits and showing me how to make better use of a significantly slimmer wardrobe. Her top tips made me feel significantly slimmer too. I had a great afternoon - thanks for your hard work Sally'.

    Nick 38, Melbourne

    ‘A few years ago, I made a conscious decision to dress and present better. I was however always relying on the opinion of the sales assistants and their not so independent view on what looks good. Plus, after years of recycling 1980's gear in my wardrobe, I did not really know where to go. Sally really helped here. For once I had the confidence that the person commenting on my selection was truly independent. She knew exactly where to go which saved a lot of time and frustration.'

    Monika, 30 Parkville

    ‘What a relief to finally get rid of that clutter in my wardrobe! The advice that I received for organising my clothing was also valuable. Now getting dressed in the morning is a much more straight-forward and enjoyable process. Shopping with Sally was a positive experience. I find shopping on my own generally stressful. It is difficult for me to find the right sizes and cuts, and I way too easily settle for the safe and familiar rather than persist to find the fun and fantastic. I dream of being able to wear clothes that reflect and accentuate the positive aspects of my personality. It is important to try to be clear in your mind what kind of style you aspire to and to communicate that clearly. When I was finally able to do that, Sally was able to meet me at that point and provide me with advice and encouragement. I left the shops with items I believe I will feel genuinely comfortable in and that move me one step closer to in a fun way integrating my interior with my exterior'.

    'I have always wanted someone like Sally to come and help me sort out my wardrobe and it was the best thing I have done in ages. After having my second child and feeling depressed about my size and shape. Sally showed me the clothes that made my features look good. She also gave my plenty of ideas what to look for when out shopping myself. I would highly recommend Sally to anyone. I look forward to taking her shopping with me for many seasons to come'.

    Nicole 35, East Malvern

    'I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and working with Sally. I found our wardrobe review session extremely productive. Sally was able to review what I already had and showed me how to co-ordinate and make what I already had work, the end result was a number of different outfits for both work and casual without needing to spend a cent on new garments or accessories. I came away with a very short list of “essential items” missing and appreciated not being pressured to book a shopping expedition which I have experienced in the past from other stylists. I look forward to an enjoyable and loyal relationship with Sally and am more than happy to provide referrals. Good luck and I'll see you in the new year for what I imagine will be a fun shopping trip!'

    Nicole 35, East Malvern

    Marie 63, Brighton

    'I am so glad that I came across Sally. I had no idea of my shape or clothes style. My pattern was to shop and be influenced by the sales person, and never wear the clothes I bought. I was unhappy about shopping and constantly made expensive mistakes. Meeting Sally changed everything in a very short time. She helped me clear out my wardrobe and shopping with her was a pleasure. I finally can wear styles that suit me and understand so much more about my shape. One added bonus is that Sally's prices are so reasonable and shopping remains affordable. I will never shop without Sally again'.

    ‘Just wanted to say a huge thankyou for helping me shop. I really enjoyed our afternoon- my only regret was that it went by so quickly! It was fascinating seeing you choose clothes that suited me so well that I never would have chosen for myself. I was so amazed at how we ended up with so many clothes in such a short period of time… it would normally take me 6 months to buy that many!
    Thanks for your expertise and for making shopping so much fun! See you next season!'

    ‘A “must” experience especially for mums that have lost their confidence in themselves and especially their body shape…Sally makes shopping so much fun, who would have thought in 3 hours I could walk out with so many bags and what's more a smile on my face. My experience with Sally has given me a real confidence boost; I'm loving my new wardrobe. Sally definitely takes the stress out of shopping- thankyou so much'.

    Marg 54, Flemington

    'I have recently had Sally in to cull my over-stuffed but under-resourced wardrobe. What a fabulous and enlightening way to spend a cold winter afternoon! Sally (very sensitively) suggested the most flattering way for me to dress, and offered ideas I would not have dreamt of implementing. I have done so, to the acclaim of the astute observer of clothes/fashion. I would not hesitate to recommend Sally to some-one who wishes to freshen up their look, AND make more room in their wardrobe; I just wish I could have Sally live in my wardrobe. Her style rules, however, are the next best thing. Thanks Sally, for changing my life'.

    Erika 28, Sunshine

    'While I never regarded myself as a fashion basket case, Sally's wardrobe edit helped me acknowledge my strengths and weaknesses while identifying and embracing my personal style. Instead of wondering each day what I can wear to work, I now feel I have more options and the ability to put things together in different ways. And it's paid immediate dividends, with work colleagues complimenting my appearance frequently and asking what's changed? A lot of the clothes are the same, but the attitude's completely changed!'

    Erika 28, Sunshine

    Sylvia 38, Clifton Hill

    'While I have watched many makeover and styling shows on TV, I was never quite sure what my body type was (I always seemed to be in between) and whether I was choosing the most flattering items of clothing for my shape. After convincing my husband to get me a 'Wardrobe Edit' with Sally for my birthday, it was great to have a professional tell me exactly which body features I should be trying to minimise or emphasise. In turn, we were able to sort out my wardrobe so that anything that was not flattering in style, colour or otherwise was put aside. Sally also helped to identify some of the shopping traps I was falling into, i.e. always buying the exact same style of clothing when other options were available, as well as pointing out a couple of things I was missing from my wardrobe. It was great to know that for many of my clothes I was on the right track, and I did not need to throw out as much as I had feared. I also appreciated Sally not pushing any further shopping trips onto me, in fact she clearly stated "no more tops!"
    Thanks Sally for a fun afternoon - it was one of the best birthday presents I have had for a long time'.
