Hanging up my shingle.. huge announcement!!!

I know I have been giving hints for a while now that I have a new venture starting up, now I can tell you some more details.. I am very pleased to introduce... 
That's www.bodypositivestylist.com - I have been doing work as a personal stylist for a number of years now on an ad-hoc basis, and after a lot of poking and prodding and encouragement from people I've decided to actually launch it as a serious enterprise and start doing more of that kind of work. It's something I really enjoy and something that does a lot of good!
My approach to personal styling is a bit different to the stylists you see on TV - rather than the "break them down and build them up again" method you often see employed, I am more interested in a positive approach.  I am also not interested in perpetrating the negativity that seems to abound when people talk about fashion - I don't happen to think we need to disguise, minimise, or "flatter" our bodies. I don't want to destroy all signs of personality and force people into a "cookie-cutter" of "appropriate" fashion. I think there's way to be dressed appropriately for any occasion AND let your personality shine too.  
I don't think the myriad of bodies out there can be broken into three, four, or even twelve different "shapes", either. We're all different!  I'm more interested in a holistic approach, where my clients get the fashion and makeup advice they're looking for, and have the tools they need to use clothing and makeup in a more intentional, useful, sustainable and most importantly enjoyable way! My approach is a respectful and collaborative one.
While I specialise in plus-sizes people I will offer my services to everyone - people of every gender, shape, colour, size and ice-cream preference. 
So... in a few short days this will be launching. Head on over to www.bodypositivestylist.com and pop your email in if you want to be eligible for my awesome introductory offer, or if you just want to know more about it. 
I am really excited about this, and I hope that you are too.
