Personal branding is a powerful tool you can use to distinguish yourself both professionally and socially. Your appearance is a big part of that.

A consistent connection between your appearance and your personal and professional accomplishments adds credibility to your personal brand.
Imagine wearing an outfit that reflects your professional and social accomplishments, and is fitted perfectly to your shape. How do you feel?

Your image assessment begins with an overview of your appearance as it is now: your style, body type, wardrobe and colours. Through a series of exercises we will then determine if your current appearance represents the personal and professional image you are striving to achieve.
During your personal colour analysis we will identify your colour palette based on your skin tone, hair and eye colour. You will learn what colours best complement your features, how to use colour to convey particular messages about yourself, and which colours to avoid and why.
In this session we will determine which style best matches your personality and lifestyle. Understanding your personal style preference is essential to knowing what clothing to buy and ensuring that what you wear is reflective of you. The objective is to identify a style that enables you to feel comfortable in your clothing whatever the occasion.
In this session we will take a look at your body shape and proportions. We will identify your basic body shape and guide you on how to choose clothing that is in harmony with your natural body lines, and balance your scale and proportion. The aim is to provide you with an understanding of what clothing is most flattering to your build.
In a wardrobe edit we will review your current wardrobe and together decide which clothes are keepers, and which clothes no longer flatter you or reflect your best image. We will take you through simple steps on how to better organize your wardrobe and create mix and match clothing capsules that make it quick and easy to get dressed while always maintaining a polished and stylish appearance.
Based on your wardrobe needs, style and budget, enjoy a stress-free shopping session where stores and clothes are pre-selected for you. Avoid making the wrong choices and overspending on those one-time-wear items and panic shopping sprees. This personalized shopping session will be tailored specifically to your wardrobe needs.
Based on your event and wardrobe needs, we will assemble your look and outfit, to ensure you feel your best for that important event. We can also organize hair and makeup consultations.

"I have been working with Liz since 2010,
and the benefits are much more significant than I expected. There are the obvious benefits of an efficient process with an expert doing all the leg work and making the experience fun and easy for me. However, this is really a process of self-discovery, and it helped me feel more confident. During the process, Liz plays many roles, as a stylist, a coach, a challenger, a guide, a therapist and a relentless advocate.
The end result is that I have broadened my wardrobe options, I feel amazing, and I’ve been able to “lean in” in the workplace and show up at my best (not just in appearance). "
"Liz educated me on a dozen plus fashion rules that I use continually.
Fewer clothes with higher quality are the recipe! And the importance of tailoring and taking care of your investments.
My business appearance is consistent.
Clients like that."
"Liz helped me define my personal brand — now I can quickly determine my goal for each of the events I attend and decide how my clothing and accessories can help reflect that goal. I never imagined I would enjoy letting someone into my closet, but Liz made it so easy, and she helped me realize that revamping my wardrobe was not an impossible task after all!
Shopping with Liz is a dream. Gone are the days of standing in a change room, wondering if I’ve made the wrong choice and ending up going home with clothes that aren’t right for me, or nothing at all. Investing in myself, my wardrobe and my image is one of the wisest things I’ve ever done, and means I’m comfortable everywhere I go—whether it's a gala event or a reading at a library. Liz has also been instrumental in helping me find clothes that compute in all areas of my life. This past summer, a shopping trip with Liz at the beginning of the season meant that I had a capsule wardrobe that worked for all my needs, including family vacations, concerts, work events, meetings and evenings in or out with friends. It was life-changing: no matter where I went or what I did, I knew exactly what to wear, and this made it one of the best summers I've ever had! Truly, wearing the right clothing can make that big a difference, in terms of time management, enjoyment of activities and self-concept. Thank you, Liz!"
"I was changing jobs from a position where casual wear was acceptable to a position in financial services and needed a new wardrobe quickly. I dislike shopping, it's challenging and it's stressful to find what I like or what I am comfortable wearing. Then I met Liz! She listened, took notes, asked questions, took measurements, went over my best colours and then listened again.... three days later I was ready for my new job! Thank you, Liz, for the confidence you have given me, for the patience and lovely attitude you have. You have helped me so much!"
"I first met Liz when I needed someone to help me shop for my wedding dress. She made the whole process completely painless, and I felt like the perfect bride on my wedding day! Since that day Liz has been there for the major transitions in my life, among them becoming a mom, going back to work after having my children and now as I go and redefine my career and go back to school. She is always prepared and professional so the shop is very efficient and you go home with exactly what you wanted, and everything fits perfectly. I will continue to use Liz to update my wardrobe; it's priceless having everything I need to get ready for my day quickly and knowing I look great every day."
In 2008, my daughter recommended Esteem Image as I was struggling with my wardrobe. Pre-Liz my closet was disorganized and a significant source of stress. Every morning I could spend half an hour or more trying to put a look together and then find myself rushing out the door. I now commence my day in a positive and calm manner. My closet is simplified/organized/functional, and I can get dressed for any occasion quickly. Finding an outfit for the day is an easy process of picking from my favourite colours and shapes. Liz helped me define my “look” and identified my complimentary colours. This was very liberating as shopping for clothes was always stressful. I was short on time and couldn't quickly assess what was right for me. Shopping for clothes has become a pleasure because I now understand what works for me. A shocking by product of going through the image development exercise was losing weight.
Working with Liz is delightful, as she brings her unique skill set to transform your life. I feel more confident and comfortable with the new me. Liz is professional, a supportive coach, and an excellent source of knowledge and information. I am so grateful that I took my daughter’s advise to contact Liz at Esteem Image.
