“I rarely if ever send a review but feel so strongly that this one is a must.

“I had the utter joy of receiving a gift (from a very close friend) for time with Ruth Murphy to get my ‘colours’ done & get general clothing advice. Having recently retired, it was timely.

“I knew of Ruth’s great work & knew what lay in store. To say that everything exceeded my high expectations is an understatement. Ruth is a delight to meet. She is so easy to get along with, she has really good ideas & has the most wonderful eye for colour & what will suit each personality. I was delighted to be the recipient of her knowledge & practical advice. I firstly met with her to have my colour established which included advice she offered on my hair & makeup. This in itself was time really well spent. On another day we went clothes shopping. I had the most wonderful few hours. She firstly helped me buy make up. Next we concentrated on clothes. She had already picked out some for me to try & was so supportive & good humoured throughout the entire time. Her advice was invaluable. I came away with some beautiful new clothes & a broad smile on my face, which hasn’t left it, almost 2 weeks later. It was such good fun & so worthwhile. Thank you SO much Ruth.”


“From the beginning Ruth put me at ease. She is such a professional and guided me through the whole process. She was generous and relaxed with her time and went above and beyond the body shape and colouring recommendations to advise on shoes and make-up.

“It has changed the way I look at clothes and colour and I’m delighted with the outcome. I would highly recommend her.”


“In the past I often had the stress of worrying about what to wear the next day for work.

Now, I have a selection of things to wear that I really like, so much less stress in the morning!

Ruth goes above and beyond with her service, and is friendly and approachable and very easy to work with, even for people who really hate clothes shopping!

I get compliments all the time now on my clothes / bag / shoes from my partner, from friends and often from strangers. I really love the clothes that we pick out. She respects my style while always suggesting one thing that pushes me out of my comfort zone, so I’m constantly learning what works and adding new things to my repertoire. I feel confident wearing my clothes now and can focus on the job at hand at work or socially without worrying about how I look. Going from worrying about what to wear to having clothes that make me feel fantastic has been a real step change. I’d recommend Ruth’s service in a heart beat.”


“Ruth, thank you so much for the shopping trip. I had a great time showing off all the nice pieces I bought. I learned so much in a short space of time about what clothes and colours go together.

Thanks again”


“Re Shopping trip: I got great value from my three hours spent shopping with Ruth.

I picked up lovely pieces which made the most of my better features(I didn’t know I had so many!!)

I learned how to dress with a touch of class using High Street names mixed with more expensive brands.

Ruth also found some suitable pieces of jewelry after our day out and let me know where they were so I could pick them up easily.

Great service and money well spent.”
