For some, shopping is a pleasure — even a release or an escape. Under the ideal circumstances, a shopping excursion can be a getaway from the demands of an overbearing boss or a hectic work week. But even those who enjoy shopping can admit that the experience can be challenging and at times, intimidating.
Unfortunately, not everyone finds peace within the walls of a boutique, and many people feel a rush of anxiety when faced with the prospect of needing a new outfit; I have talked to clients who describe shopping as painful. With so many brands and changing trends, shopping can be an overwhelming task, resulting in choices that don’t always enhance your appearance, and leading to money wasted on clothes that do nothing for you.
Much like no two brands are identical, body types are different too. A new outfit might cause one person to shine, while that same outfit might diminish the appearance of another — and often times, we don’t see ourselves in the same light as others do: if you hate to shop or just don’t have the time for it, a personal shopper can be a source of relief — and in many cases, can even make shopping enjoyable. For me personally, nothing is more rewarding than observing a client's mood change during an afternoon of shopping, as they realize how expertly we’re crafting the right wardrobe — and one they’ll actually wear this time.
Contact me to discuss your personal shopping needs. I’d be happy to put a plan together for you.
I had a huge amount of black clothes in my wardrobe and never realized how washed out they made me look until I stopped wearing them. I also thought I could wear more or less any colour, and I didn’t give much thought to emphasizing what looked BEST. Lynda really taught me to be more discriminating, choosing colours that made me come alive.Patricia H.Psychologist
Madison had a wonderful time with you in your Manners Matter course. It was nice to see her so enthusiastic to teach me some new things. I noticed her posture was better that first day :) She was proud to teach her younger brother as well. We will definitely like to take that class again.S. CoomerParent
Lynda's professional etiquette seminar is a must for any business wishing to ensure that its representatives know how to behave appropriately in the corporate world.

Lynda presents this difficult topic in an easy and approachable way, making people feel comfortable to ask questions without awkwardness.This seminar brings real practical results. Now I feel confident that my employees have the skills they need to represent my firm in the most professional way possible. In addition, my staff now feel much more comfortable in both business and social situations.Chantal Desloges, LL.B., C.S.Barrister & Solicitor | Law Firm Principal
Even after having spent only a few hours with you, I still keep your advice in mind when dressing for work or shopping for new clothes. It helps a lot in simplifying the process for me and making it more enjoyable (or at least much less painful) than it otherwise would be. It's especially important for me to maintain an image of professionalism and respect and I've found that the simple tips you've given me allow me to achieve this easily and inexpensively.Lee G.Business Consultant
When Lynda went through my wardrobe with me, her eye for what worked and what didn't work helped me tremendously. What remained became the 'bones' of my wardrobe and I felt as if a huge depressing burden had been lifted from my shoulders. It's like losing weight. It is so much easier now to make smarter fashion decisions. Now I get compliments on what I'm wearing.Helen W.Senior Designer
Our organization, like many others, faced a challenge with our younger staff: how to define for them what proper business attire means in today's workplace. We turned to Lynda Jean and are delighted we did so.
Lynda, through a "Lunch 'N Learn" session, brought down to earth, practical advice to our staff in a way that was informative without being condescending or crossing any human resources boundaries.
I am pleased to be able to say that we had very positive feedback from our staff on Lynda's presentation and, equally importantly, we have noticed a definite improvement in our staff's attire.Michelle CapiobancoManager, New Business Development
We operate a first-class service to our High Net Worth clients and, consequently, it is critical that all of our various staff members are well trained in proper etiquette.
Lynda Jean’s four-hour tutorial was a very helpful way to teach our team proper dining skills, courtesies and workplace dress and behavior. Lynda Jean presents an informative, pleasant and very useful set of skills that we all enjoyed and learned from.
I highly recommend her tutorial as both introductory training and on-going refresher courses for everyone from new employees to Senior Executives. Her course includes both an e-book and reference guide as excellent take-aways.Joanne Dereta, MBA, CFP, RFP, CIM, TEPManaging Director & Principal

Lynda Jean's recent Professional Etiquette Presentation to law students at William S. Boyd School of Law, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, was invaluable and very appropriate for our students preparing to work in the field of law.
