“I live in Darwin, and had been in contact with Pip months prior to my Cairns holiday to plan a consultation during my upcoming holiday. I engaged Pip to assist me in finding some corporate and casual clothing, accessories and advice on colour palettes to suit my complexion.
Due to positive changes in my career circumstances, I felt that I needed to find a consultant I would be comfortable with. I found Pip to be a professional, yet approachable and genuine person who assisted in finding quality pieces of clothing within my moderate budget.
The 1/2 day shopping consultation was an enjoyable experience, one which I approached with an open-mind. Pip makes you feel very comfortable and guides you through the experience. It is also a great learning experience seeing what clothing styles look best on you!
Her ability to respect your budget, prioritise clothing pieces and ensure that selected clothing pieces are versatile is something I personally appreciated.
Pip does her very best to ensure that you receive maximum value out of the shopping experience.”
“Pip, thank you so much for your time and attention on Friday. I really enjoyed having you with me to choose dresses and it was great to try styles that I wouldn’t normally go for. I have picked up a few of your hints and I look forward to meeting you again to have another shopping experience with your advice.”
Kind Regards. Pam
Just a short email to say thanks for getting me out of my fashion rut! The session with you really helped me see that I had lost my way and started dressing like an old(er) lady – no wonder I felt so frumpy before!
I received some great compliments on my outfit at the awards night last week, and re-vamping my work wardrobe has been a great boost for my confidence. All this has motivated me so much! Some time this weekend I plan to do a wardrobe cleanse – I think I will require a glass (or two) of wine to tackle that though!
I look forward to making another appointment with you in a few months to further update my wardrobe. You really are great at what you do.
“After working closely with Pip on a number of editorial projects over the last 12 months, I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Her approachable manner and outstanding communication skills, ensure that any assignment she undertakes will be completed with the utmost professionalism.
By keeping abreast of trends both locally and overseas, she has played an influential role in the development of our publication, and continues to inspire our readers with her creative flair for fashion and incredible eye for detail.”

“I would like to Thank Pip for a wonderful shopping experience. Pip taught me a lot about fashion and accessories and what I can wear and to be a young 50.
I have struggled with fashion for a long time, Pip taught me what buy and how to wear it and what accessories will work. I am now confident to go shopping and have a lot of fun.
My wardrobe now looks amazing and exciting. I now have for the very first time, ” a little black dress”.
Once again, I can not thank you enough. Thank you Pip”
“My 14-year-old daughter has her first Semi-formal coming up later in the year. We were overwhelmed and had no clue where to start looking for the “right” dress. That’s where Pip steps in!
Pip helped her pick styles, colour, length’s, accessories and shoes that made her feel special and glamorous. Pip was extremely professional and easy to engage and discuss issues that concerned me.
Regarding age appropriateness. Fourteen year olds are not women yet despite what they think. Pip was sympathetic to me and made my daughter look and feel a million dollars. We are thoroughly grateful for Pips expertise.”
Thank you Pip. Sarah
“I would like to say a big thank you to Pip for helping me choose THE dress for my wedding. From the underwear through to the jewellery and even going through pictures with me to look for a hairstyle.
On a day where I thought I’d be stressed, Pip made it easy and was so professional it was a great experience.
Thanks again Pip!!”

“Pip did an amazing job transforming my wardrobe. She had years of rubbish to clean out and I wish I had taken a before picture. As a Mum with two small children, I always came last – money was spent on everyone else first, before me.
In two short days Pip will change your life for the BETTER!
Pip worked within my budget – which was amazing as I really had to get a complete new wardrobe even down to underwear and makeup. And not to mention the shoes!
After my two days with Pip I was left with no dilemmas in what to wear, and if clothes I had looked nice on me. My Husband has been very thankful that I am not moping around the house before we have an evening out saying I have nothing to wear! I actually look for places I can go to wear my lovely outfits.
I cannot believe the job she has done and she hasn’t tried to make me into something I am not. She has listened carefully to me, but at the same time added in things to push my boundaries and get me to develop a personal style. You will not believe the little things that have made a huge difference!!
#1 a gorgeous pair of Jeans – have made a huge difference in my style
#2 awesome gym outfit!! I now look trendy and extra slim while working out!
#3 accessories – what a difference adding some ‘bling’ to your jeans and shirt makes.
This is something I thought only ‘Famous’ people did – but it is NOT!!! And I can’t wait for another shopping trip with Pip in the future.
Thank you Pip for all your help – It really has changed my life!”
“First off I want to say thank you for such a great experience. I loved absolutely every moment and I know that I can now confidently walk out of my house looking great.
Ever since I went shopping people at work have been complementing me on what I’m wearing and they are even making comments like ‘Gosh I feel so frumpy next to you’. I’m definitely taking that as a complement.
So thank you once again. You have definitely got me sorted for quite some time in the clothes department!”
“Thanks to Pip @ Modern Style, I have finally found what I have been looking for! I started out always looking in my overflowing wardrobe and thinking I have nothing to wear! Always getting upset that I could never look as trendy or fashion conscious as the person next to me. It was then I started to investigate into a stylist.
Pip has been amazing; she sorted me out, cleaned out my clothes that I had been hanging onto for years. Pip developed a strategy plan including hair and makeup, opening my eyes to what was already in my cupboard, teaching me to match things and accessorise, taking into consideration my lifestyle and what I wanted to get out of this experience. I wanted to have a hassle free wardrobe, look and feel fantastic. Pip took me out shopping and taught me some valuable lessons about shopping for clothes.
One year on, I am feeling so great about my fashion choices, continually getting compliments on my clothes and how good I look! I cannot begin to thank Pip enough for what she has done for me. She is always there when I need a consult for ideas for upcoming events! Thank you Pip for all your hard work!”
“Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to Pip from Modern Style for helping me put a new outfit together, she gave great advice on which top, shoes and accessories to get and even down to nail polish, can’t get better than that, now for the big night out girls x”
Thank you so much for such an amazing day of shopping.
You made it such an effortless experience , your caring and relaxed manner put me at ease immediately and the day seemed to fly in a flurry of clothes, shoes and laughs.
You are the ultimate professional and your insight and understanding of what suited me (and my budget) and tips on how to mix and match and accessorize to get the most out of an outfit, were invaluable.
I have loved all of the pieces we chose and love the fact that they can be worn in so many combinations.
Thank you for your wonderful patience and great advice. You not only transformed my wardrobe but also my whole outlook and helped renew a confidence in myself that I haven’t felt in a long time.
Can’t wait to do it all again…”
I so enjoyed my day with you and find it hard to believe I have not done this sooner. I found you easy to be with and very caring about my feelings. I loved the way you were able to fit so many items into our budget and I have learnt so many small tips from you which I am trying to implement every day. I have consoled myself by working out that I have spent far more on clothes throughout the year and half of them are neither stylish or well fitting and certainly dont mix and match with everything else.
I am definately going to do this again next year, I wish you all the best, look forward to seeing you again.”
Kind Regards, Jacqui
First off I want to say thank you for such a great experience. I loved absolutely every moment and I know that I can now confidently walk out of my house looking great.
I cannot speak highly enough of Modern Style’s Pip. Not only did she make me feel great, but she also made me look great. The entire experience from the very beginning was just fabulous. I learnt that ‘I can look great, in a really simplistic and stylish way’.
I absolutely loved going shopping and am already feeling like I can pick out some fabulous clothes that suit my personality and my figure. Pip, thank you so much for giving me the confidence to look great each and every day.”
Thank you again for all of your help, I have been complemented on every day (which makes me feel great 🙂 )
THANK YOU !!!!! You may be getting a few calls over the next few months.
I am still getting people saying how lovely I look, and asking me where I got me clothes from, I feel wonderful and it is all thanks to you…”
Cheers, Kelly Stonehouse
“Firstly I have to say a huge thank you to Modern Style. Not only did I love my shopping experience, which was absolutely fantastic.
I also feel refreshed & energised after my wardrobe makeover.
I have learnt essential style & fashion tips. Along with great advice on the best clothes and accessories for my figure.
My makeover has given me a new lease on life, I am now excited to get dressed and head out.
I can not thankyou enough for inspiring me!”
I can not speak highly enough of you and the service you provide I am constantly recommending you, so once again a big thankyou,”
“I’m pleased to recommend the excellent services provided by Pip Addison. Right from the start Pip understood my lack of fashion knowledge and the problems I had when choosing clothing.
Her clothing choices fitted not only my personality but also my budget and lifestyle to a tee, I now feel comfortable and stylish when I walk out the door whether it be for dinner, coffee with the friends or even with the kids.
I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Modern Style!”
“I just wanted to thank you once again for giving my wardrobe a new lease of life and for showing me your fabulous shopping tips. Although I had always enjoyed shopping for clothes – now I LOVE IT! You helped me choose items that better suited my body shape, could be mixed and matched with existing clothes and other new pieces and most importantly were great value for money.
Your knowledge of fashion trends was amazing and although I like to have my own style, it was nice to know what not to wear and it was great to know what the look of next season will be. Your retail background was really helpful in teaching me about the particular sizing that different stores have, and now I avoid the stores with sizes that don’t sit well on my frame. This has also saved time, which I never seem to have enough of!
I really enjoyed our day together and after our shopping expedition I couldn’t wait for an opportunity to wear something from my new wardrobe – especially the silver sandals which as you predicted have become a fashion favourite this season
I have recommended you to all of my friends and can’t wait to go shopping with you again for my winter wardrobe. Thank you so much for re-igniting my passion for fashion and helping me to make myself look and feel great. You’re a legend!”
“What a difference!! My wardrobe was a collage of items from years gone by, the sentimental, the never worn and the just too small, I had the classic never throw anything out wardrobe.
Pip made it easy to decide what should stay and what should go, helping to replace discarded items with updated pieces while utilising what already existed in my wardrobe.
The shopping day was great, Pip manages to take you out of your comfort zone without making you uncomfortable and her knowledge is obvious throughout the day.
I now try on things that I would not have before and think about how it will work with what I already have, I’m no longer overwhelmed when I open my wardrobe, I will definitely be shopping with Pip again.”
“It was time for a change. I had moved house 3 years earlier and there were a bunch of clothes in my wardrobe that had not been worn since the move. I had the frequently worn clothes in the front of my drawers, and a compost pile of unnecessary stuff at the back.
I never paid any attention to how I looked, and frankly, even if I wanted to, I had no idea what looked good on me. I grew up in a country town where you wore your good double-pluggers to special occasions. Which is simply to say that I wasn’t raised in a place where you paid attention to how you looked. I never bothered to learn about any of this.
Knowing this, I called in the cavalry. Pip and I had met some time earlier through a shared friend, and I remembered that this was what she did.
Two hours into the process, I had given to Lifeline 10 years worth of accumulated junk. That alone was worth it. After my shopping trip with Pip, I now own only clothes that fit, look good and are good value for money. Some of these are new, some from my previous collection.
Short term Benefits:
- An interesting day out, experiencing a whole new way of thinking about clothes & shopping
- Clothes that were based on what I needed (actually needed, not thought I needed) and my budget. This is not about just going out and spending mega-bucks on ‘the hot look’. I did need some fairly formal office wear (for a new-ish job), but the majority of the time was spent on good-fitting, appropriately styled basics.
- Good value shopping. Pip knows where all the specials are and gets you good deals on what you’re buying.
- A whole new understanding of what sort of clothes to wear, not wear and when.
- Frank, fearless and female advice on what worked and what didn’t.
Long term benefits
- I will no longer waste time looking for the few decent things I owned amongst the dregs, and can confidently dress in very little time for any occasion. This will save me a lot of time in a month, and I’m not burdened with the clutter and mess in my wardrobe.
- I will no longer spend good money on clothes that are the wrong size, wrong style, or which I will not be comfortable in or just don’t need. How many t-shirts do I really need to own? I know what I need in my wardrobe, and where to get it at the appropriate level of quality and price.
- I’m now confident that I can dress well and appropriately for anything.
I would recommend Modern Style to anyone who wants to think about how they look and how they present in work and social settings. If you’re perfectly happy with the status quo, this may not be an experience for you, but if you want to change, or even think you want to change, the guidance is well worth the price.”
