We love clothes, we love fashion…..but at Ruby Slippers it’s soo much more!
Our passion is to help you find perfect outfits to fit with your lifestyle & budget. Whether we’re styling you in Country Road or Chanel, Portmans or Prada our sessions are friendly, practical and will leave you wondering why you shopped without us for so long.
We don’t work for any stores & we don’t put any pressure on you to buy anything. We just take you to the stores that you right for you, and show you how to put together outfits that look amazing on you.
It’s simple, fashion shouldn’t be hard and should be for everyone.
At Ruby Slippers Styling we believe that beauty is what’s beneath your skin and all we do is help polish the outside to make that shine. We know how you look on the outside can control how you feel on the inside and we want you to feel the best you can, every day.

Meet our lovely team of super stylists
In 2010 I founded Ruby Slippers Styling, after a decade in the Corporate world. After seeing people have failed shopping trips, hellish experience getting ready to go out and wasting money buying clothes they didn’t need…I thought we can help! Let’s get some brilliant stylists who are the best shoppers…and let them take our clients on the most amazing shopping sessions they’ve ever been on…. and that’s what we do.
We help people have a magical shopping experiences, leaving them with a wardrobe filled with great outfits that made them look and feel amazing, every single day.
Managing to tie in my corporate training roots and fashion stylist skills, I now spend much of my time delivering Fashion/Style workshops and speaking events, I also write our blog…so yes, the spelling errors are all mine!
As co owner of Ruby Slippers, after 10+ years in the corporate world and having owned my own recruitment business. In 2012, I decided to embark on a new career as a Personal Stylist. As a self confessed shopaholic and having always been interested in fashion, becoming a stylist was the best thing i ever did. I have always loved helping and coaching people and having worked for many years finding candidates their perfect role, I truly understand the importance of Personal Branding and what our style says about us.
With a Diploma in Fashion and Personal styling, I have styled 1000’s of men and women of all shapes and sizes and walks of life. From a stay at home mum wanting to rediscover her style ‘mojo’ after having kids, to a time poor, board level executive looking to revamp their corporate wardrobe. Enabling our clients to discover their style and feel confident about the way they look makes this job so rewarding.
As a mum of 2 boys and running a business, I understand how busy life can be and being able to work with our clients and help them to understand how to best dress their assets and camouflage their problem areas, is the key to successful styling.
