Jade completely revolutionised the way I think about fashion. You know the old adage – when you’re in the market for a red car, suddenly you notice how many red cars there are around? It was like that the week after our consultation – I was really paying attention to people’s outfit combinations and accessories, and noticing their degrees of personal style, which is something I saw but never really noticed much before. I was worried that a fashion consultant would turn their nose up at my very humble collection of clothes, suggest a list of ridiculously expensive alternatives and leave me with nothing much more than a lighter wallet and a feeling of inadequacy. But the diametric opposite was true. Jade walked in with a sunny smile, made me feel instantly comfortable, got an idea of what I wanted to achieve and walked me through a bunch of deceptively simple, entirely fantastic and wonderfully realistic suggestions to improve and add to what I had. Not only does Jade help you add to your wardrobe, she also has an eye for what you can scale back on. My favourite part was when she said, wisely and entirely justifiably, “I say this with love – you do not need any more cardigans or printed t-shirts”. To a friend of mine, she gently suggested that she did not need to her already enormous collection of socks. Now, whenever either of us are tempted by cardigans or socks respectively, we text each other a photo with the hashtag #jadesaysno. Our wardrobes are happier for it. I can’t recommend a consultation with Jade highly enough. Along with her stylishness, she brings a sense of humour and a general non-judgemental, down-to earth loveliness. If you’re looking for a gift idea for a friend or partner, it’s also one of the best presents you can buy someone.
