A UNIQUE GIFT THAT WILL ALWAYS BE USEFUL & EXCITING
Personal Stylist Sydney
Often people would consider using a fashion stylist to be an expensive extravagance, when in fact it will actually save them time and money. Creating great outfits from fashion items you already own and don't know how to wear is like shopping in your wardrobe. Buying fashion items that fit, look good and flatter you will save you money on buying items you don't wear. The efficiency of a personal stylist or personal shopper means you will save an enormous amount of time shopping. This equates to hours and hours of time you can invest elsewhere and if shopping is not a pastime you particularly enjoy this can be a godsend.
Thank you for sending through the pics from our shopping day and following up. It has been a whirlwind few weeks and I apologise that I haven't been in touch sooner. The best thing in amongst all the busy-ness is that getting dressed each day has been a breeze. I don't recall a single day since we went shopping that I've struggled with what to wear. In fact, I've been spoilt for choice.
I've also had lots of fabulous comments from people, especially about the brighter colours I've been wearing and everyone is coveting my black/blue/aqua heels and little aqua belt.
Thank you again for your time and guidance. This has been such a positive experience for me!
Meg started 2016 with us helping her sort out her wardrobe, creating outfits from her current clothes and then shopping with her for what was missing.
"I had the best time today thank you so much. I love all the looks we have

Tonight I had one of my girlfriends over and we tried on all the outfits.
You have changed my whole attitude to the way I look and dress thank you so
I'll definitely contact you in August/September for more shopping for my
Thank you again I'm so happy"

Why you should use Annalisa Armitage AICI CIP as your personal stylist.
- Annalisa is fabulous at making her clients feel comfortable and at ease. It is not only a learning experience. With Annalisa it is always a fun day out. Even for people who hate shopping.
- Even though she possesses a keen innate eye for style and detail, and a passion for all things aesthetic, she does not rely heavily on her subjective opinion, she will use many objective measures to ensure her clients are wearing the correct fashion apparel for them individually.
- Annalisa always takes into account her clients individual preferences and feelings, she won’t make her clients wear things they are not comfortable in.
- She will work within your budget, and help you find fashion items that you can afford.
- Totally unbiased professional advice. Annalisa does not receive any commission from any retailer, if she is offered a commission she will pass this on to you in the form of a discount. Many personal shoppers will take you to the shops that offer them the best incentives and this adds a bias to their advice. You need someone to give you totally unbiased advice; otherwise you would just ask the shop assistant.
- She will teach you to shop for yourself, and provide you with guides on how to do so, if this is what you prefer.
- Annalisa will not focus on the latest fads, and if she recommends a trendy item to you, she will give you an idea on how long that item will be fashionable for.
- As one of the few professional fashion stylists in Sydney to be a member of AICI she has chosen to abide by the strict Code Of Ethics, which in turn gives you confidence that what we say on this website is true and accurate and that she will always act in a professional manner in all her dealings.
- As an AICI CIP (Certified Image Professional) Annalisa is accredited as a professional image consultant, one of only 130 CIP's in the world and only 4 in Sydney. Anybody can call themselves a fashion stylist, but only a few have the professional experience required to make a difference to the wide variety of people and styles.
"I believe that everyone has the right to feel good in what they are wearing and to have confidence in their attire. I believe that a person's clothes should not be a constant issue in their lives. I believe that a person's style should reflect who they are, not determine who they are. We should not be held back and judged poorly on what we are wearing, we should be able to step out every day with confidence."

For a hesitant customer who had never considered seeing a stylist before, both my consulting experience and shopping experience with Annalisa were extremely positive. Her professionalism and skill were outstanding, but her warmth and sincerity made for great company as well. She taught me to work with my strengths and let go of the rest!
I was pleasantly surprised by the ease at which we flew through the shops - an extremely productive two hours of researched and informed selections. I know that Annalisa's expertise has saved me both money, and a significant amount of time!
Ultimately, working with Annalisa has transformed my morning routine... I have found the Zen in my outfit selection, allowing me more time to hang with my two children before we begin our busy days. I thank you Annalisa & think you are really clever at what you do.

Some lovely comments from our fabulous clients
"Just want to say a big thank you for a wonderful day today. I now feel more confident. God only knows how much money I have wasted over the years (on buying the wrong clothes).....don't even want to go there. Really loving the skinny coloured jeans. I never dreamed that at 56 I would be wearing skinny jeans!!!!! I am feeling really good about that. And the jackets!!! Well say no more....unreal buys.
So glad I found you and will definitely stay in touch for further advice on my wardrobe.
Love your honesty and professional manner.
take care and stay warm."
Love Rose xx
Annalisa worked with Rose in June and July 2015 to help Rose to develop her own style. The brief was that she didn’t want to feel frumpy and old lady but also didn’t want to look like 'mutton dressed up as lamb' either. They started with analysis and understandings of colours, styles, and of course her personality and then went through Rose's wardrobe. This session was 4 hrs. They then spent 3.5 hrs shopping to find the missing bits in her winter wardrobe. They'll do her summer wardrobe as the season approaches.
Thanks so much for your time yesterday. It was a huge success and I didn’t expect to get so many clothes in one trip! Plus, thanks to your discounts,(My Image Consultant Sydney has secured a 20% discount at some boutiques in the city) I was well within budget!
Thanks also for the outline below and attaching all the photos that you took. I plan to go shopping this weekend for shoes. I have attached photos of the shoes I bought recently from Nine West but haven’t worn much. Hopefully some of them will work with my new combinations as well.
Would definitely be interested in a wardrobe review or top-up later in the year. Will be in touch!
Thanks so much. It was a lot of fun!
Shari engaged us in Feb 2015 as her personal stylist. Sydney personal shopping is cost effective with our special discounts.
Thanks so much for yesterday, it was great fun and I really enjoyed your expertise and advice and most of all shopping with somebody that appreciates and understands fashion while giving an honest opinion.
Looking forward to arranging another meeting for my winter outfit.”
Merry Xmas and thanks again,

"Hello Annalisa, Happy New Year!
I can't believe its February 2015! I was only just looking forward to Christmas. I can't tell you how much you changed my life last year. I learned so much in a short space of time and it really gave me the confidence I needed.
I just looked back on the email below and can't believe it was August! It doesn't seem that long ago. I still have things I want to learn from you though. I have made some choices and purchases on my own but I still struggle again with combinations. I'm ok with that though in that I'm now ready to learn some new things from you.
As I said in my last email; I wanted to catch up again when I was 85kg and I've just hit the goal!! I'm now in size 16 instead of 18-20 pants and 14 tops sometimes smaller. Unfortunately I'm traveling a bit in the next month or so but I'll be making contact in about six weeks for another catch up.
I've bought some 14 dresses but I'm still not sure about wearing certain things again until we've caught up. I'm still wearing the light blue Sportscraft suit we bought together. I received so many complements on the suit at a conference I went to, that I bought the black and dark blue as well. I did have to get the 16 pants to go with them.
The main thing I've learned is that having clothing sorted makes everyday life easier. It just goes to show that if you have options ready to go the day isn't stressful or is less so. The point is that the time and effort with you made life easier and I had no excuse when I was bigger for not trying to have options. I'm quite proud and grateful that I took the step to get in touch with you.
Thanks again, Annalisa. I mean it that sincerely! "

"I wanted to write to you and say a super THANK-YOU for making my birthday one of the most memorable birthdays I have ever had. I had so much fun and absolutely love all the new items in my wardrobe and look forward to wearing each and everyone one of them with confidence! I’ve already had some fabulous compliments on the ones I have warn.
I came home with the biggest smile and messed around with my new clothes like a kid with a brand new birthday toy! I mixed and matched them all and took pictures of all the different combinations. In one evening I put together 24! So you did a magnificent job. I took your advice and went to the store Hype to find a casual shoe and purchased a pair of white ‘Vans’ and they are so comfortable on my foot. You’ll be pleased to know that I discovered that my blue print pants I purchased were a size 16 so I took them back the next day for a size 14. You’re totally right I was buying a size that was too big. LOVE the new skinny jeans too. I felt very relaxed with you and thank-you for making the day so enjoyable and rewarding. It was nice to dedicate some time to myself and a pleasure to meet you."

Andrea Prince, Sydney
P.S. I have written you a testimonial(see below)
Andrea engaged us in August 2013 as her personal stylist. Sydney shopping is always fun with Annalisa.
A heartfelt thank you to Annalisa for working with me to overhaul my clothes and presentation. At 5ft 1 inch tall and softly spoken, I need all the help I can get in being taken seriously in my senior role at work.
The experience was unexpectedly transforming and Annalisa's warm and approachable way, coupled with her laser focus on getting results was great.
The impact was immediate and I received lots of comments from colleagues in my team on my style being more tailored and fitted and on the colours I'm now wearing. Annalisa's tips on where to shop for my style were spot on and propelled me straight into action!
I'm a lot clearer now on what to wear and I don't waste precious time and energy worrying about clothes - I have a fabulous range of options in my wardrobe now and getting dressed is a breeze.

"Thank you so much for sending the images through. I tried on all my new clothes for my husband tonight, and he thought they were great. He also thinks you're tops.
I also cannot believe how cheap it all was! All those clothes only cost $1750!!!! And that makes me happy, as it was well within budget. Yay. Usually i am hopeless and pay $300 for one shirt because i love it... and then i can never work out what to wear it with again. LOL. So i am totally stoked thanks!"
Jenni engaged us in Aug 2013 as her personal stylist. Sydney has some great stores with some great bargains and Annalisa has a knack of finding just the right items for her clients.
"I hope you're well, and really I just wanted to reply and say thanks again for a great day (if you still remember me). I was one of your 6ft clients I assume aren't that common? It really was fantastic spending the day with you in March and learning from you, definitely the most productive and stylish birthday I've ever had :) Well yes I do feel more focused when I'm shopping for clothes, I got the rest of the things on the list you wrote, I'm finding I'm much more comfortable in neutrals and colours and I've gotten rid of most of my black clothes. Since you said to stay away from black I've noticed just how many black clothes I have that I just don't wear, and that's because it doesn't really feel like a comfortable colour on me, well most of the items anyway. Some things have just gotta go, so they're off to the Salvo's after my friends pillage through them. Excellent – well done!"
Even though I was a little anxious at first, I really had a wonderful time. I think staying at one department store was the best use of our time and gave us a lot of brands to choose from. Your advice on fit really showed me how to get the best from my body and colour doesn't scare me any more. As our personal shopper excursion was predominately for work clothes, I've now added some casual 'bottoms' as suggested to complete my winter wardrobe - denim skirt, opaque stockings, chocolate brown leggings (took me ages to find - Noni B of all places!) and custom made jeans should arrive next week.
I originally thought I'd be referring to the photos you took of my outfits frequently while I got use to the coloured items. But, knowing that all the colours compliment each other just makes getting dressed so easy!
My family and friends have given me loads of compliments and using your fantastic advice has made my recent shopping trips a pleasure knowing what to look for then quickly and confidently disregarding those that don't meet my requirements. I have and will continue to recommend you to anyone who asks. So don't be surprised to hear from me again in preparation for summer!
Cheers and thanks again,
