This shopping experience was a blast! Vanessa was amazing, she is very professional and she truly has the instinct of fashion, I even felt enjoyable just watching her picking up clothes. She cares about what I want and what I need. She gave me fashion inspirations and showed me how to truly have fun with clothes. Thank you Vanessa!

Die Tour mit Vanessa hat großen Spaß gemacht. Sie hat uns in tolle Läden geführt und sofort nach neuen Ideen und Styls gesucht. Sie hat dabei den eigenen Stil und die Persönlichkeit erkannt und auch berücksichtigt. Sie hat uns ermuntert, auch mal Neues zu probieren, aber behutsam. Sie hat uns auch von Kleidungsstücken abgeraten und damit gezeigt, dass es ihr nicht nur um eine schnelle Kaufentscheidung ging. Ihre Beratung zielt darauf, wirklich die Kleidung zu finden, die zur Persönlichkeit passt und die lange Freude macht. Das hat mir besonders gut gefallen. Die Atmosphäre war sehr entspannt und freundlich und ich kann Vanesse wirklich empfehlen. Danke für das tolle Erlebnis!

Vanessa is charming, thoughtful and knowledgeable and instinctively picks up on what would be suitable and tests what might be an option for someone such as myself who is stuck in a rut. Vanessa encouraged me into more colourful options than my basic black and I am delighted with my purchases and the whole experience. I thoroughly recommend Vanessa whom I will be linking up with next year!
