Cruising through the aisles for styles
August 07, 2008
Like Rosemary, Janet James also had a wedding to look forward to, but as she had already chosen her outfit, she was looking for some glamorous clothes for a forthcoming cruise holiday which she can also wear when she gets back.
Maxine helped Janet choose a Debenhams Collection black dress with white flowers (£40), Red Herring black shoes (£12) and a Jasper Conran black bag which Janet wore for the makeover photos.
She also went away with a Casual Club print skirt (£22), a Debenhams Collection belted blouse (£23), another blouse (£16.10) from Debenhams Collection and a pair of cream shoes (£12) from Red Herring.
Janet said: “I was flabbergasted – I picked my outfit and it only came to £48 so I had to get more! I hate shopping and looking for clothes so it was lovely to have Maxine get the right sizes for me. She was brilliant.”
Heather Chard loved all her clothes so much she couldn’t decide what to wear for the makeover pictures.
Eventually, she settled for Red Herring white trousers (£14), a Red Herring black top (£7) and Red Herring black shoes (£28). She added a red jacket, also by Red Herring, to complete the look.
Heather’s other items included jeans (£20) and a Casual Collection flowery top (£12) as well as a black bag (£17.50) and a pair of red shoes (£25) by Red Herring.
Heather said: “Maxine brought back loads for me to try on and I chose my favourites. I would never have considered a red jacket before but I ended up getting it.”
Marie Carter was also delighted by Maxine’s advice.
“Maxine was brilliant!” she said. “She was really helpful and handpicked all the clothes I took away.”
Marie’s haul included a chic Jasper Conran cream blouse (£45) and a pair of Debenhams Petite Collection black trousers (£15), which she wore for the photo shoot.
She also picked some white capri trousers from the Debenhams Petite Collection (£12.60), a Rocha John Rocha pink jacket (£35), a Jasper Conran black top (£17.50) and three Red Herring camisole tops in black, white and blue (£21).
City Woman readers would agree, Heather, Janet, Marie, Rosemary, Rosie and Faith – look, quite simply, fabulous.
