Kirstie Smillie – personal stylist
Muddy says: Fashion is a not the most important thing in life, but self confidence is… and personal stylist Kirstie Smillie can help with that.
Fashion is a funny thing – it shouldn’t be that important but if you are feeling low in confidence or have a job where image is significant, clothes do matter at a level that will differ for everyone.
With Kirstie’s experience in fashion, she will support those who need a style boost, those who lack time to work it out or have lost their mojo.
Kirstie offers several personal styling services. The most popular one is the home Wardrobe Edit, where together you will go through your clothes, trying on and taking pictures to remember outfit combinations. It’s a great way to work out what stays, and to prepare for a new season’s shopping day.
Kirstie also offers a personal Shopping Day, where she spends time searching for items, and planning a shopping route. It’s a simple, fun process, building outfits and not just buying one-off items.
Wardrobe Edit and Shopping Days are from £150.
Coffee Consultation, £25 (redeemable on booking, a chance for us to meet and chat about your style before booking).
Small group workshops are also popular, gathering maybe five friends to Find Your Perfect Jeans or for an Introduction to the New Season.
Kirstie studied Fashion Design, then worked for Good Housekeeping and Ideal Home magazines in Fashion and Homes styling. Later she went back to my design roots and opened a shop in Guildford called Vinegar and Brownpaper, selling her fashion range and designing wedding dresses. When she had a family, Kirstie moved back to styling with House of Fraser, Personal Shopping and really learnt about ‘real’ women’s lives. She has since taught with The London College of Fashion and now styles ladies (and men) in Surrey and surrounding counties, for special occasions and everyday wardrobes.
