MY STORY

"I wish you could style for me". Your wish is my command. Introducing My Virtual Stylist, a platform created by me, Rosie McKay, so you can literally have a personal stylist at your fingertips. 

As a stylist and personal stylist/ shopper with almost 15 years experience the above statement is the number one line I hear from anyone I meet. Sometimes fashion gets a bad wrap for being fickle, but there is absolutely no denying the feel good power of a well-styled outfit. 

I am a big believer that looking good and feeling good go hand-in-hand and a well-planned out wardrobe is key to always making sure you’re putting your best foot forward in every situation. As a personal stylist, I love what I do because I see the renewed happiness and confidence it brings to my clients. There is a misconception that you need to spend a lot of money on to look good, but I disagree! It’s about spending money on the right pieces. I believe quality over quantity is better and buying well is key to creating a wardrobe with lasting power. 

The aim of My Virtual Stylist is to empower you to feel your very best, most confident self in any scenario - be that a business meeting, dinner date with your partner or a playdate with your little people and other mums. The key to style confidence is a wardrobe of well-curated pieces that reflect who you are, hardworking pieces that you can mix-and-match into looks to suit your mood, day or occasion. This ability to put outfits together know-how doesn't come naturally to everyone and that's where I come in. The My Virtual Stylist platform gives you the option to purchase a digital shopping curation / personal styling, book in a face-to-face personal styling session with me OR both! If you wish you can add a face-to-face consultation to any digital package you have already purchased or simply book in time as a stand alone service. My clientele ranges from the corporate professional who needs a smart, hardworking wardrobe for the office through to a chic yet casual off-duty look, to those entering a new phase in their life or celebrating a milestone or change in body shape.

Best bit? I want to share all of this know-how with you so you can feel empowered to walk  into your day, week, month feeling your very best. And before you protest - you can afford a personal stylist! Why? Because I am a whiz at working with all budgets, have an eye for choosing pieces that can be styled in multiple ways and have honed shopping a sale to a fine art. 

With the click of a mouse I can help you build a wardrobe that makes your fall in love with your style again. Our digital packages start at $199 or $330 gets you two-hours of one-on-one time with me. As one client said to me recently, "it's a small price to pay to feel ready to face the world again".

TESTIMONIALS

Thanks to your help I feel more confident about making shopping choices. It has really stopped my habit of impulse buying. Rather than picking up something because ‘it will do’ I look at myself in the mirror now and think ‘does that look great’?! I got a lot of compliments wearing some of the outfits you picked out. I really felt like a celebrity walking around with someone picking out my clothes. It helped that you were so friendly while also being honest about what suited me. I really was pushed out of my comfort zone to try things I wouldn’t ever have picked.

I had the pleasure of Rosie styling me for my marketing shots for my new business. I booked Rosie for a 2-hour Style Me session and it went great! Rosie shopped from my wardrobe which I found great comfort in as she pieced together outfits I hadn’t thought to pair before. I was also comforted in knowing I didn’t have to go and buy a whole new wardrobe for the shoot. It was a fun experience and I was confident on the day as I knew I looked and felt great. I highly recommend investing in a stylist especially for a photoshoot or even to refresh your wardrobe.

I was so lucky to spend a day with Rosie where she shared her knowledge, tips and tricks with me. Not only did we have a blast, she advised what would work with my body shape such as lengths and cuts and what I should avoid. Her secret tips that would make my mere 152cm frame look like I had long legs was definitely a favourite. Her eye for detail is nothing short of amazing… she picked a dress of a rack which I immediately said “that would never suit me”. Needless to say this is a favourite in my wardrobe and when I wear it I get so many compliments. I now shop with a clear idea of what items my wardrobe is missing, from the basics, to the keepers and then to the seasonable items that are just that… seasonal! I highly recommend spending time with Rosie… her energy, passion and bubbly personality makes shopping fun, enjoyable and I cannot wait to do it again!

Loved working with Rosie, she has such incredible taste! I was after soft romantic looks for my latest campaign shoot, and she styled it beautifully, with beautiful lace dresses, vintage beading, gorgeous bralettes. Rosie really understood the look I wanted, and elevated it with luxurious styling and detail. She is organised and super helpful, I would definitely work with her again.
