Taking the hassle out of shopping with affordable and versatile French fashions from Captain Tortue. Designed for busy, style conscious women size 4-24.
I am a ladies fashion stylist who offers friendly style advice and outfit suggestions. I work with Captain Tortue, a well-established French fashion brand for ladies size 4 – 24. With over 25 years experience, the Captain Tortue collections are designed from high quality fabrics with unique detailing for effortless styling and everyday wear.
I make shopping for clothes that perfectly match your style, easy and enjoyable. You can shop at my boutique-at-home in Harpenden by appointment or I can bring my shop to your home, office or events (either in person or virtually!) to showcase my range of chic fashions, offer style advice and create a fun and relaxed shopping experience.
Whether you are looking for one item, an outfit or a complete capsule wardrobe, I will help you look and feel fabulous in your outfit choices, taking into account your body shape and lifestyle.
I work collaboratively with a number of Image Consultants and other businesses in the image & beauty industry to help you achieve the look that will boost your self-confidence.
I also help others to start to build their own fashion business. Style Consultants have the flexibility to work around their lifestyle & often add it as another income stream to their existing job or business. It goes without saying that they love clothes, but no previous experience is required.

I have always been interested in clothes and fashion – there is even a book of my “designs” as an 8 years old lurking in my loft! However it soon became apparent that I didn’t have the artistic talent to pursue a career in fashion designing, so I worked in the retail industry at various levels and for a number of different companies. I was inspired to start my own business by my Dad who started his business when he was 50 years old and flourished through the opportunities that being his own boss brought him after years of being in the Civil Service!
I discovered image consultancy after my Mum had her “colours done” in the late 1980s revolutionising the way she felt about herself, boosting her confidence when shopping and dressing. So when I became pregnant with my son, training to join the image industry just seemed the obvious thing to do.
I have been inspired by my clients who often say I have changed their lives just by helping them with their wardrobes. People may scoff and say what we do is frivolous, BUT it is so powerful. I have had the privilege of seeing people blossom and grow when they understand the clothes that flatter their bodies and the look that’s right for them.
If you have visited exclusive stores and bought designer outfits, but no matter how much money you spend, you think something isn’t working… I can help! I am all about simplicity, so I teach simple repeatable techniques that you can quickly grasp to create a wardrobe you love and a look that makes you feel fabulous.
