An amazing day with Mel today – started with the wardrobe edit then booked a shopping experience to fill the gaps and add some excitement! I am now the proud owner of a wardrobe that works, high-quality pieces and a catalogue of ways to mix and match across seasons. But that’s not all – Mel’s ability to leverage outlets and sales meant I got three times as many items for my budget.
Thanks Mel for challenging me to look and feel my best
My session with you Mel has had a lasting affect. My confidence has grown day by day since our consult. You have a knack for boosting women up and the fact that you helped me grow on the inside means I can shine that bit brighter on the outside. You definitely hit the sweet spot between professionalism and making it feel like a day with a big sister. You are making a real change and you come from such a genuine place in doing so – I’m so grateful I got to be a part of it. Thank you!
Working with Mel in both Wardrobe and Shop has left me feeling cleansed with a revived personal style that I LOVE! Always the professional, Mel took the time to understand me and the outcome I was looking for. I have walked away feeling fresh, confident, classy, stylish and BoHo corporate – Exactly what I was looking for! I can not recommend Mel enough. Thank you for guiding me and enabling me to light my wardrobe style sparkle!
Mel is extremely warm, welcoming, professional, approachable and non-judgmental. I learnt how to make use of what was already in my wardrobe and transition my clothes from summer to fall/winter. Mel put together looks that I never thought to do and they looked great and made me feel great! All this was promptly followed by sending me photos of my new outfits and any notes she took. I would recommend her in a heartbeat. Thanks Mel for breathing new life into my wardrobe!
The full package was incredible!
Mel’s initial consult and wardrobe edit really made me reconsider using so many pieces I would have otherwise chucked out. And she also helped me to chuck heaps of things out too!
From that Mel put together a shopping list and we arranged to meet the next week at 1pm in Flinders Lane (Melbourne). By the end of the four hours of shopping I realised I could never have done any of that on my own. It would have taken me so much time to work out which shops to go to and what pieces to select. Mel had already been to the shops beforehand and pre-selected items for me to try on. So when we would arrive at a shop I would just got straight into the change room and Mel would bring in clothes to try on.
Such a time saver and such value for for money. The thinking time of what to choose was completely taken away from me. Amazing!
The last session was Mel helping me put together all the clothes in my wardrobe into more than 50 different outfits, all saved in an album on my phone! Easy.
One of the questions Mel asked me in my initial consult was “How do you feel when you leave the house each day?”
Me: “angry” (I have 3 boys under 8)
Now I feel “put together and confident in what I’m wearing”
Mel definitely re-educated (or maybe just educated!) me about how to wear clothes in a way that I’ve always wanted to, and this was such a massive time saver.
Mel made me feel so at ease, nailed my vibe and did all the hard work on the day. I simply walked in to the fitting room and everything was handpicked ready to try. I was so pleased with her choices and would never have been able to make a shopping experience so seamless or successful. Mel made every cent count, plus she’s also great fun and so so so lovely. Spending a day with her was an absolute treat – Erynn
Mel, My new clothes are helping me to reclaim a part of my identity that I hadn’t been honouring.
The ripple effect of wearing outfits that I love is truly profound! I’m feeling good in myself, seizing all sorts of opportunities, getting even more done (and receiving compliments daily). Engaging your assistance has been one of my highlights of the year! Can’t wait to do it again next season! – Wendy
You have an incredible gift Mel! This experience was SO MUCH MORE than I expected. I love my new wardrobe…. but what I love the most is how great it makes me feel. Thank you for genuinely caring enough to make sure I found this place in my self. If I could give you 10 star’s I would!!!
I just wanted to say a massive thank you again for helping me create a whole new wardrobe. Yesterday when we shopped, I bought things I would never had even considered prior to meeting you. I’m genuinely excited to get dressed for work tomorrow and the next day and the next.
To anyone who is currently ‘stalking’ Chelsea on social media, like I was, wondering if she could work her magic on you, the answer is Yes!
Thanks for helping me find my identity again and making me feel stylish and cool instead of frumpy and old!
I look forward to our next shopping trip x
“Hi Chelsea, I just wanted to follow up and say thank you for such a mind blowing shopping experience. It felt a bit like the princess in the Disney sleeping beauty movie with 3 fairy godmothers running around in circles dressing me, except there was only one of you and no magic, at least not that I knew of!
My wardrobe looks amazing now, even some of my old stuff is working harder, and we’re up to 24 outfit combos and counting. Thanks again!”
So, I’m a hard nut to crack. I know what I like, I love shopping and I lean towards glamour and flamboyance. But…my wardrobe was giving me a headache. So much stuff, some of it fabulous but nothing seemed to be easily put together anymore and I couldn’t work out what my style was. Enter one Chelsea Brice. She got me, and subtly but surely taught me some new tricks and how to re imagine my look. We culled and I can see air in my wardrobe for the 1st time! We shopped, for lovely items that can be mixed up. Getting dressed has suddenly become fun again and sooooo much quicker and less stressful. Clever lady this one. Lovely to boot. I am very grateful for the tips and rethinking and support. Xx
“Thank you” for the fabulous job you did with our makeup for the wedding on Saturday, 6/9. We both received some lovely compliments & I certainly felt good as the “Mother of the Groom.”
“Thankyou so much, you really helped make the day special.”It was the perfect day to evening look. Big eyes, glowing skin and a plump lip, my makeup stayed on all day and needed no touch ups through out the evening.”
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for doing such a beautiful job with our makeup for my wedding. We got so many compliments and you really made us all look fantastic! It was exactly what we wanted and lasted all day, and looked great both in person and in the photos. I really can’t thank you enough, and I’m so thrilled that we booked you. I would definitely book you again, and would absolutely recommend you without hesitation.”
“I am forever grateful for your advice, expertise and commitment to our special day. I really appreciate everything you did for me, you made me feel relieved after receiving your first email and after meeting with you at the trial, I was completely sold.
My bridesmaids looked beautiful, absolutely flawless and as for my own makeup, I loved it! I could not have wished for anything more. We chose the hottest day of the year (43 degrees) and our makeup lasted the whole evening.
I want to thank you for all that you have done to make our wedding photos look as incredible as they do. The memories will be cherished and last forever, they are nothing short of amazing.”
“Chelsea, I just want to say thank you so much. Right after we met my mum rocked up and the first thing that came out of her mouth was ‘wow, you look beautiful!’. You made me feel comfortable in my own body and I haven’t felt like that in years. Thank you just doesn’t seem like enough. Best chick out, I reckon!”
-Monique, 46 from South Yarra
“’Thank you Chelsea for an eye opening styling session. Your advice on the correct colour, clothing and style has taken 5 years off my almost 60 year old look – the session was certainly life changing and confidence boosting.
How amazing it is that the correct colours literally light up your complexion.
My wardrobe was OVERFLOWING with mostly unsuitable garments but after your wardrobe cleanse and our 3 hour shop, purchasing only 9 – 10 items, I now have an amazing selection of mix and match garments for any occasion.
With your advice I now realise it’s not about the clothes – it’s about the person wearing them, and if they are guided in the right direction they can create a sensational wardrobe with only a few garments and always look great.
Thanks again for the confident boosting session.
The compliments keeps coming on my new look.”
-Jenny, 57 from Rosebud
“My main reason for seeking a styling session was to work out “what do I wear at my age” and how can I cover those extra kilos I gained over winter.
I got more than I bargained for when I met up with the gorgeous Chelsea. For starters, Chelsea taught me that I don’t have to spend hundreds of $$$ on an outfit to look good. Chelsea showed me what colours suited my complexion and what style of clothes I should wear to compliment my best assets.
My sisters are my best critics and when they visited me from interstate they couldn’t get over how good I looked. My new styling session has stood the test of time and I’m amazed at the compliments I am receiving from my friends. I am loving my “new” look and definitely walking around with new found confidence in myself.
Chelsea gave me my personalized styling tips on handy little stack-away cards. I can always refer back to them when in doubt.
Thank you Chelsea girl. I was apprehensive about getting a personal stylist, but you made me feel at ease right from the start and by the end of the day I was feeling pretty pumped and haven’t stopped feeling this good.”
-Andrea, 53 from Geelong
“Your personal styling session and subsequent shopping experience has inspired me no end! I usually hate to shop and I never seem to get what I need! Having you along ensured I got all the holes in my wardrobe covered and now I even have a shoe for every occasion – instead of relying on just a couple of pairs to get me through, rather badly! I’m experiencing true freedom – LOL really – I’m excited about getting dressed each day! I know this probably sound ridiculously trite to many of you but seriously – I’m feeling great in my clothes and it’s helping to make every day just that little bit more fabulous!!!”
-Victoria, 43 from Malvern East
“Shopping to me was at most times depressing, sometimes never trying on clothes just buying them whether I needed them or not. Why, because the clothes I was buying never made me feel beautiful. I thought if I brought what was in fashion then that’s good enough… Well then I had my wardrobe review with Chelsea. She showed me so much in so little time. 1 I was buying clothes way too big for me. 2. Just because it’s fashion doesn’t mean it is right for you. 3. Look at clothes when buying them to see how many ways can I wear this with other items in the wardrobe.
Our shopping spree was the best experience I have ever had. 1st pair of jeans I tried on, yep tears (tears of joy) and lots of them. They made me look at least 2 sizes smaller. Before Chelsea I was buying 2 sizes bigger than I needed!!! We had that wow factor quiet a few times that day.
I have been shopping on my own since and I can’t believe how different I shop plus to shop in the shops I always said to myself ” Fleur those clothes won’t fit you don’t bother”
Chelsea you have changed my world in so many ways, I now walk out my front door with a feeling of “world just take a look at me!!!! A lot of my friends are commenting on how I look now.
If you sound a little bit like me then you must see Chelsea. In the long run she will save you money on wasted items and make you feel million dollars.”
-Fleur, 35 from Cheltenham
“Wow! Chelsea’s insight, knowledge, empathy, and passion for what she does…along with a great sense of humour…has given me a great new wardrobe that enhances my body and who I am now, not the old me I was still dressing. For the first time in years I’m looking forward to going shopping with confidence. I highly recommend her services … I’ll be using them again.”
-Felicity, 46 from Port Melbourne
“After having a depressing wardrobe for years, I called upon Chelsea to do something & that she did! She came, saw, consulted & waved her magic. I have never felt so confident especially in pieces I never dreamed of wearing. She pointed out what my assets are instead of me focusing on what I don’t like & wanted to cover. I highly recommend Chelsea to both men & women she will rock your wardrobe & your world”
-Jaki, 35 from Rosebud
“I had a wonderful opportunity to go shopping with the lovely Chelsea Brice and my two sisters. Not being “a shopper”, I was amazed at my own enthusiasm to get to the next shop, dressing room, counter, to fill some more bags. We were almost the first to get to the shopping centre and definitely the last car in the park!! Chelsea taught me how to shop with confidence and colour. The fact that all of my purchases can be mixed with most of my existing wardrobe is a bonus. Thank you Chelsea for helping me see that shopping for clothes will no longer be a chore, but an adventure. Am looking forward to doing it all again.”
-Suzi, 52 from Adelaide
“I stumbled upon Chelsea’s website when I was putting together a professional wardrobe to take away with me for an extended interstate assignment staying in a Hotel.
It was the best thing I have done, and I now wish I had done it years earlier. We started by auditing my existing wardrobe and then with Chelsea’s help and planning we visited shops that she had already investigated for styles and fabrics that would suit me and my budget. I thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and have learnt so much that I will apply to my solo shopping trips in the future. Chelsea is not only a clever stylist, but she is fun to be around, and boosted my confidence in presenting myself at my best.
I have recommended her to friends and they have had similar experiences.
-Noeleen, 58 from Elwood
“Thank you Chelsea for an amazing day. I feel so different and free. Love breaking the rules and thinking laterally.
My partner was knocked sideways when he saw me. He loved the look and it certainly turned some heads as well. We did some serious shopping and put in a full day.
It really has made me feel sooooooo much better about my body and about me. You have a great gift for dressing us more mature women”
-Robyn, 62 from Ringwood
“After having gone through this styling experience it’s clear that there really is a skill to it all. I really appreciate the great lengths you went to understand what I needed, what I already had that was (and wasn’t) working, as well as what would work for my lifestyle and my body shape. It was clear that you did a lot of work behind the scenes to make sure that we got the most out of our shopping time together.
I was so surprised at the amount of great items we picked up within my budget, and that you were able to identify which pieces to invest in and where we were able to mix some of the more expensive pieces with some absolute bargains (which I hadn’t expected). I’m really happy with all the piece that we bought and I’m still shocked with what we were able to achieve in 5 hours.
All of this works back with what we decided to keep in my existing wardrobe and it all looks and fits great. There is no way that I would have been able to achieve what we did in 5 hours even over the course of a couple of weekends, so it’s also saved me weekends of shopping, not knowing what to buy, or buying the wrong things. Can’t recommend your services highly enough and just really wanted to say thank-you for really listening to what I thought I needed and then translating that into a style that works for my life and makes me feel amazing. I can’t reiterate how great value for money your time and expertise have delivered, or what an enjoyable and easy experience it was.”
-Katie, 33 from Port Melbourne
“Chelsea, I just wanted to say thank you so much for helping me with my outfits to pack and wear before my big work trip to Milan. It made such a huge difference and I had comments such as ‘glamorous’ and ‘stylish’ thrown at me by clients who didn’t recognize me over there.
I’m so happy and much more confidant now. I open my wardrobe each day and now know exactly what to wear, all while looking and feeling fab!”
-Emma, 27 from Edithvale
“This has been such a fun and uplifting experience. Chelsea’s knowledge, professionalism, patience and kindness blew me away.
I had recently moved house and in my mind had de-cluttered my wardrobe quiet significantly…. not so after working with Chelsea. During our first session she began to understand what my preferred style was, she listened, stepped me through the process and made me feel totally comfortable.
I spare you the details but a lot more of my wardrobe ended up in a big pile, I was so surprised and a little confronted by it all, but Chelsea’s ability to make you feel comfortable is one of her many skills.
The following week Chelsea took me shopping and upon arrival she had already selected all the items she thought would suit me. I loved every single piece she had picked and she has definitely spoilt me now. My shopping life will never be the same, it was the best experience ever.
Chelsea thank you so much for making me feel like a million dollars, you are an amazing stylist and i will continue to work with you and recommend you to all my clients”.
“Chelsea really impressed my husband and I with her professionalism. We weren’t quiet sure how a stylist would work and as it turned out there is a definite process that Chelsea uses. She really took the time to get to the bottom of what was most important to each of us personally. She was not concerned with achieving just a super styled outcome for each of us but she really wanted to understand what we each loved and what would make us feel really happy and confident.
Through working with Chelsea on the styling and wardrobe edit package I’ve now got the tools to stop me from wasting our money on clothes. Chelsea narrowed down what I need to look for in clothing to make sure it looks amazing and compliments my figure. It was like the penny dropped. I had never really looked at myself properly in the mirror and couldn’t quite understand how a piece of clothing I loved was so hard to co-ordinate or feel good in once I got it home. I have so much more head space in the mornings and before I head out for a special lunch or dinner. The confidence I have in shopping now is fantastic, I won’t settle for something that doesn’t hit the mark, it’s got to be a piece I love!!
Lastly the way Chelsea worked with my husband blew me away. He can be quite shy and Chelsea was validating and firm with what works and what doesn’t. Through the shop she was so In tune with how he was feeling and what made him feel terrific. He absolutely loves his new wardrobe and feels back on track. What he is wearing is now a true reflection of who he has become.
So Chelsea, thank you so so much for being fun, professional and giving us back our groove after many years of being buried in raising a family!!!”
“I can’t thank you enough for such a wonderful evening shopping, I love my new clothes and have received so many compliments about my new look. I feel so much more confident and have bought and worn things that I would never have looked at in the past. Clothes may be the window dressings but they certainly have helped me feel more attractive and comfortable in my new body. I had a wonderful time shopping with you and have been recommending your services to anyone that will listen.”
“I can’t tell you how much I loved our shopping trip (love and shopping are 2 words I never thought I’d put in the same sentence!) You taught me so much and now I feel empowered to shop for myself and confident that I will actually consider whether the clothes are actually flattering rather than whether they fit! I’m also actually excited about heading out with girlfriends as I feel great in the clothes we chose.
Whenever I have shopped before, I have left feeling a bit down and self conscious about myself. Friday was exactly the opposite as you switched my thinking and focus. I think I look great in my new clothes and feel proud of my body!
A huge mindset shift so I can’t thank you enough. Best gift ever and I will be back for sure. Trouble is is that I want to use you all the time now!
You’re so good at what you do and so lovely with it. Perfect combination”
“I love walking into my wardrobe now, its amazing & makes me smile every time. I can’t believe how much happier & more confident I am wearing stylish clothes that actually fit me. And I think the jeans are the most comfortable pants i have ever owned”
”Like most guys I have always had a strong aversion to shopping. After a recent wardrobe clean out I realised I had no clothes left …enter Chelsea. Chelsea provided an efficient, seamless service. After our initial briefing we met in town where my entire wardrobe had been pre selected ready to try on. 2 hours later I walked away with a new wardrobe. Chelsea’s selections were on point and she challenged me to ensure my wardrobe became versatile and complete. Highly recommended!”
“Thank you so much Chelsea, I normally leave the shops feeling unhappy with little to no purchases, constantly trying on things that aren’t right for me & today was the complete opposite. I actually enjoyed shopping & left with so many options that I’m excited to wear!”
“Such an amazing day shopping. So excited for my new wardrobe & mum looks amazing too! Chelsea you are brilliant. Never shopping by myself again”
“Hi Chelsea, I think I may be just just a little bit in love with you! I woke top this morning and had an immediate feeling of “clean” when I looked at my cupboard. You are fan-freakin-tastic”
“A huge THANK YOU to Chelsea for my ‘brand new’ wardrobe im absolutely over the moon. You work incredibly hard for each & every client & I cannot thank you enough. You have made me a very happy lady & I look forward to doing a winter top up!”
