A Week in The life of Style School Scotland

A WEEK IN THE LIFE OF STYLE SCHOOL SCOTLAND 👍🏼😍👚👖👗 No 2 weeks are the same but they all include the words in the pic – just in case you wonder what we get up to, here’s an average week ………………………….
MONDAY – Lovely start to the week with a meeting to Plan a Forthcoming Fundraising Fashion Show for a local Golf Club. 👍🏼😍👚👖👗Then, Back to our Pop Up Boutique in the afternoon for a quick Seasonal Shop with a couple of customers who love our Collections – every season they buy just a few pieces to complement their existing wardrobe. They love that Captain carries colours & themes through the seasons making it perfect to inject a couple of new pieces each season👍🏼😍👚👖👗
TUESDAY – Wardrobe Workout – we spend a happy morning in a customers wardrobe – she loves to look good & well put together but doesn’t have the time to organise outfits each morning so wanted her life simplified – we weeded out a few garments that no longer work for her and rearranged her existing wardrobe into groups of outfits which she can easily pull out each morning, in sections to fit with each part of her life – she was delighted that she can now easily lay her hands on the perfect outfit for any occasion.👍🏼😍👚👖👗 Next, we had 2 lovely ladies come together for a Colour & Style Image Revamp Session – they both felt stuck in a rut with their style and were despairing of how drab they felt. By the end of the session they were amazed and delighted with how easy it is to revitalise their wardrobes just by injecting some colour combos that worked to lift their skin tone & choosing styles, shapes & fabrics which flatter them – bringing their look bang up to date and taking years off them .👍🏼😍👚👖👗
WEDNESDAY- Fab, Fun Drop In Day catching up with lots of customers – loyal & new, popping in to Our Chic Boutique – they love the Collection for its Classic Styling, Quirky Details, Luxe Fabrics, Sensible Sizing (6-24) & Flattering Styling plus of course the Personal Service & Style Advice 👍🏼😍👚👖👗.
THURSDAY-We get our steps up with a Personal Shopping Session in Glasgow with a lovely lady who puts a wee bit away each week to pay for her annual treat – she just loves the experience -We preshop for her in the morning & then meet her in the afternoon for her trying on session where we fine-tune her outfits. It is wonderful to see her confidence grow as we build her a capsule wardrobe full of colours and styles that flatter her👍🏼😍👚👖👗
FRIDAY- A local firm has employed our services for an Image Management Consultation with a young graduate assisting her to develop her Personal Brand & reflect the Company Image. It’s a really rewarding session helping this young woman move from student to confident, perfectly polished professional.👍🏼😍👚👖👗
We finish off the week with another fun afternoon of drop in customers who love to shop local – always a pleasure, catching up with them all over a cuppa talking all things style & seeing them looking and feeling fabulous 👍🏼😍👚👖👗. Oooh and also in between customers – we begin the planning of our upcoming Train as a Stylist Course 🙂 xx
