Shirley Phillips image consultant and personal stylist for Dundee
Colour Analyst and Personal Stylist for Tayside, South Angus and Fife
Hi, I'm Shirley Phillips and I'm here to take you on a fantastic journey that will change how you look and feel, for life. Whether male or female, young or old, it's never too early - or too late, to discover the colours and styles that help you shine. Your journey with House of Colour can take as little as a single day, but with results that will last a lifetime. I act as a catalyst giving you the tools that enable you be the best version of you - any time, anywhere!
How would you like to look and feel great, all of the time? A first impression, generally only takes 15 seconds to form and you only get one chance at it, so it's vital you get the right message across from the start, whether in a social or business context. Wearing the right colours and style for you can instantly make you look and feel great, giving a confidence from within, which others can't help but notice! On the other hand, wearing colours and styles that are out of sync with your skin tone and clothing personality can make you look washed-out, tired or even worse, sinister or untrustworthy. What impression would you prefer to give?
The House of Colour journey teaches you how to select colours and styles that compliment what nature has given you, enabling you to choose clothes with confidence and clarity. From corporate to casual, formal to freestyle and school run to celebrations, it's all about optimising your internal and external qualities!
If you've ever felt you have a wardrobe full of clothes yet nothing to wear, these classes are for you! Many people wear 15% of their clothes 85% of the time - what a waste of wardrobe space - and money! Once you know what suits the inner and outer 'you', you'll feel fabulous wearing everything in your wardrobe. The colours and styles in your wardrobe will all complement each other, but most importantly, will all compliment you. The knowledge you gain will enable you to shop with certainty and ease; recognising which clothes harmonise with your skin tone, body shape and personality meaning that you avoid expensive shopping "mistakes" that can needlessly cost you a fortune and which also take up valuable wardrobe space.
We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and were amazed at how we could look wearing the correct colours!" J.B.

And then yesterday, I went shopping....It was fun!....Normally it's not fun at all. My new colours definitely suit my skin tone better. I pulled out an old black t-shirt to wear while I dyed my hair, and every time I passed the mirror I thought how stark it looked. And that was only 36 hours after I'd started wearing warm colours. Every time I pass a mirror and I look healthy and glow-y! Who wants black anyway!
"Thanks again for a great day! As soon as I got home I divided my wardrobe! Can't wait to buy all my new clothes and get the new me looking fab! Thanks again for everything!"

"We wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderful style day yesterday. We both had tremendous fun and learned so much! We've been chatting about it ever since and can't wait to get our wardrobes sorted :) Your warm and personal touch throughout the day, together with your knowledge, patience and sense of fun, enabled us both to relax, have fun and learn so much!"
It's crazy, I just feel like my eyes have been opened. The compliments are getting insane!!"
Every time I come here, you change my life

Had to pop on and tell you about my fantastic shopping experience yesterday (my first time near clothes since our colour and style class on Friday!). Took myself to TK Maxx - my most dreaded shop as it always feels so overwhelming, Thanks to my colour book I was able to focus very quickly on what would suit, and then determine if it was my style or not! I left with 4 classic items for my wardrobe (all well made) one of which is a stunning Brick red dress that I wouldn't have dreamed of even looking at previously and its breath taking on! All done in less than an hour ... that is unheard of. Plus I left feeling excited about my purchases, instead of the usual unsure and stressed from the experience.
Heading out on my lunch again today - can't wait!
