Blog

Anyone who knows me would tell you I have quite a lot of to say, I could actually waffle on for hours, seriously and the thing is I get caught up in my own exuberance and enthusiasm - Clearly this doesn’t always mean everyone wants to hear it so it is with great joy in my heart I offer you my blogs..... The written ramblings of ‘This Girl’ or ‘That Girl’ are a collection of real stories and situations, they are hints and tips that I am imparting to anyone who can be bothered to read them, they are free, and the best things in life are free, aren’t they.

Personal Shopping

01/2018

You always get me to consider clothes that I never look at in a shop as I’m convinced they would not suit me. Your eye for shape and colour and detail, you got me out of my basic black and navy! You talked me into trying a beautiful green and gold colour coatigan which was way out of my comfort zone but I have had amazing comments and (as you said it would ) it has been great for my recent holiday and will be perfect for Autumn/Winter. I always feel confident with the clothes you choose and I actually wear them, gone are the days when I have loads of things hanging in the wardrobe unworn with the tags on! Looking forward to my next shopping trip.
I would highly recommend your personal shopping service Mardi Girl.

Work Event New York Wardrobe

12/2016

To be honest I always go to Karen in a panic around clothes. She also guided me on outfits for a work event in New York – how to look good on the plane but also comfortable for that 8 hour flight! Once she understands you and what you need she is like a whirlwind of organisation and vision.

Thanks Karen xxx

Family Holiday Wardrobe

11/2017

We had a family holiday of a lifetime booked and I was in a complete panic about what to wear!! We were off to Orlando for 2 weeks and I wanted to be comfortable for all of the walking but also wanted to look good. I didn’t want to be that ‘mom’ in white socks and trainers!!

Karen was amazing! She just seemed to have an eye for the perfect item and fit! She chose a couple of outfits that were great for the day but could also work in the evening when we went out for dinner or stayed to watch the fireworks. She even found me 2 pairs of cute pumps that made some of the outfits!!

I have still worn all of the clothes back in England and get regular comments about how good they look!

Client Feedback

01/2018

I used to walk into areas of our home and mentally leave again because its so unorganised, I felt I was failing. Sometimes just getting out the door every morning took me so long because I couldn’t find anything, which was such a struggle with the children. Karen helped me to make some changes that were so positive they helped the whole family and I am really feeling more confident now because I feel in control again

Loft Job Ashstead

10/2017

I asked Karen to help as she is organised , creative and great at understanding and interacting with people.  Karen provided a structure and plan including recommendations for local skips and electrician and suggestions for keeping memories whilst letting go of items we really didn’t need or would never use. Karen provided low cost design ideas for storing kept items. Karen was very respectful during the clearance allowing time for reminiscing and decision making and making sure the decision making fitted with my work schedule. All work was completed on time  – the clearance took 3 days – and was actually fun and stress free. We now have a loft where we can access and store what we need. The rest of the house of now freed from items that are now in the loft. We also retrieved priceless photos and letters. I’m delighted and thoroughly recommend Mardi Girl.
