Jon Hillary - Businessman
Penny adopted a friendly and cooperative approach to our session which put me at ease straight away – no Trinny and Susanna antics!
The session was discussion and conversation based which was great – no stranger knows you better than you know yourself and Penny never adopted the attitude that she knew best.
Working through the session in a structured manner helped a great deal to ease the anxiety of my wardrobe being chucked into the dustbin from the outset, which I was quite nervous of. Understanding facts and sharing of knowledge before moving to the actual fit out was immensely beneficial as we could both then attack the clothes with adequate understanding and comfort.
No one likes being told that they don’t look good in something (especially the male ego). Penny was assertive when she needed to be but always applied the discussed principles to any differences of opinion making it easier for me to let go.
I learnt that we all have our comfort clothes and that these realistically represent about 20% of your wardrobe, yet you continuously revert to those 20%. The key is to operate out of your comfort zone for certain occasions.
There are clothes in my wardrobe that are “the business” but that I simply don’t wear. Penny gave me the encouragement to try them on and give them a go. I was pleasantly surprised!
For a male fashion ignoramus, Penny provided a no pressure guideline as to what to steer clear of and what to wear more of, taking cogniscance of body shape and colouring. All good!! top
