A Testimonial From Narelle
I had the absolute pleasure of starting 2015 with a wardrobe consultation with Denise. On entering my wardrobe, Denise commented that she couldn’t feel me. I explained to Denise that my wardrobe contains many items that have been given to me. Some are wonderful designer pieces, but there are also some pieces that were truly not me.
As it unfolded that many of my purchases were made when on holiday, Denise identified the fact that the decisions we make can reflect the energy driving us at the time. We can so easily get distracted when choosing clothes and then not choose the true reflection of who we are. Is it a lack of self-worth that stops me buying something that I consider expensive?
Denise brought much clarity to our time together, making observations on the way my facial expressions changed with different outfits, and feeling into what was happening at the time as well as the history of the item of clothing.
Denise’s gentle honesty was profound and I found myself able to be truly honest about how I felt wearing different items of clothing. Denise respectfully challenged me to contemplate why I would choose to wear something that did not hold me to the quality I now am. Denise has such a strong connection to who she truly is, and is able to impart great wisdom in a manner that is never intimidating or judgemental.
The consultation was always all about me and my preferences, with insights from Denise’s expertise, observations and feelings. Denise has helped me to see new possibilities in the way to wear various items where previous judgements had been influenced by harsh self-criticism and ingrained beliefs. Also, Denise showed me where sometimes I may have been trying to justify wearing an item (because of its cost or other reason), when it just wasn’t me.
This consultation was so much more than what may be offered by regular colour consultants. It is not about needing to go out and buy lots more clothes. It is about deepening your understanding of self, and from there, being able to confidently choose what is right for you to wear in this moment.
Thank you so much Denise for all that you brought to our time together. I think I want to live with you - imagine having that support every day!
