Wednesday 22nd October may have been an ordinary shopping day for most, but was an eventful day at Quedam Shopping Centre since they had the pleasure of Yeovil Town football players ready to accompany the winner of Quedams recent fashion make-over competition #StyleMe.
The lucky lady; Rebecca Hobson couldn’t believe her luck when she was selected as the winner to this very special day “I’ve never won anything before. I absolutely adore fashion, but have no idea what I’m doing! My husband gets so frustrated with me and my wardrobe, this is exactly what I need!” The 40 year old mother of two, tells us how time is precious, she needs a wardrobe to work for her so she can stop spending money on pointless purchases and focus on her career and family. “I’ve always known a personal stylist would help my addiction to shopping and save me money, but didn’t have the confidence to approach one, I can’t tell you how thrilled I am”
Rebecca’s stylist for the day Emmeline Stevens from The image Consulting Company says “Becs has been a dream to work with, she had the tools there she just needed to know how to use them, I can see that this opportunity at the turn of the season is the break she needs from the stress of her wardrobe, I’m so pleased that not only did we find a great Autumn outfit, she’s gone away with a plethora of advice to work with going forward, thus saving her money in the long run by shopping wisely”
Alongside Emmeline, stylist Brigitte Ward came on board to look after the Yeovil Town Football Players: Kieffer Moore & Sarah Wiltshire. Both players couldn’t have been more different - a confident Kieffer at a staggering 6’6” with petite porcelain prettiness Sarah at his side. Both players not only had the luxury of a fashion stylist but walked away with an Autumn outfit of their choice.
Both Emmeline and Brigitte commented on how inspirational and versatile the Autumn fashion is at Quedam this season “River Island have got too many items both Becs and I got carried away with, from sheepskin style coats to the most comfortable wedge boots and leather look skirt. New Look took us by surprise too with some great Autumn pastels at amazing prices that made the budget stretch miles!” Emmeline says. Whilst Brigitte favoured TopShop “We all fell in love with a moss green faux fur gilet, Topshops cutting edge styling really added the finishing touch to the outfits we tried. We couldn’t have had more choice and versatility for every age at Quedam, one day just isn’t enough!”
Emmeline, Brigitte and the team would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in this successful day and the very helpful staff in each store, particularly Starbucks for being the location of the final shoot with such patience at the end of a long day!
