Testimonials

Susie is a styling genius! Before I met her, I was clueless about what colours and styles suited me and my wardrobe was a hodge podge of outfits – a lot of which I never wore. Susie helped me identify the best styles for my personality, learn which colours suit me and which don’t and also understand what styles and cuts of clothing suits my body.

Shopping with Susie is so much fun! I loved how she politely shooed away the shop assistants from the change room, as they were offering the wrong colours and styles for me to try on. I now feel capable walking into a store, knowing exactly what to look for and what to ignore, so I’m no longer wasting time and money buying the wrong clothes and I’m feeling so much more comfortable and confident in what I am wearing now.

Thanks again Susie. Please be my shopping buddy forever 🙂

I am the ultimate skeptic on self-improvement and therefore have to say how impressed and surprised I was on the outcome of my session with Susie.  I am now wearing colours, tones and jewellery that I would never have dreamed of doing – even changed my hair colour!  A real eye-opener and everyone is telling me how good I look – haven’t had that happen in a long time!

Thank you Susie – you are a true professional!

Colour and Styling with Susie was fun and very informative. I had no idea how different colours against the skin, can make you look either washed out or glowing.  The styling component was incredibly thorough, right down to sunnies and jewellery.  Shopping has always felt like a chore but Personal Shopping with Susie was amazing and I now have a couple of new items in my wardrobe that mix really well with my existing clothes.

Overall, I found Susie to be so helpful and professional and I have it all summarised in my folder which I can refer back to.  A great experience, something I should have done 20 yrs ago.

Sally – Frenchs Forest

As a mum of three young children and living in rural Australia, I do not have the time or retail outlets to worry too much about my fashion sense and style, however after losing weight and turning 40, I decided it was time to do something special for ME and so I enlisted the professional help of Biddy & Jean!

Susie was an absolute sweet heart and I really felt I had known her for years.  Not only is she warm and endearing but the tips & advice she gave me were invaluable. I have gone from a generic chain store school mum, to someone with confidence and poise.  Susie has given me the push I needed to go from just being ‘mum’ to being ME….. Not to mention the fun we had together in the session – it was fantastic!

Thank you Susie, you have truly changed my ability to go out the door without feeling daggy and dull – I have re-entered the work force and feel like a new woman …… A woman wearing the right colours and style to suit me of course!

Anika – Cootamundra

Many thanks to Susie, for my recent “Absolutely Fabulous” package.  It was great fun, but also really valuable in terms of pin-pointing my colour grouping & then culling my wardrobe to suit.  I now know why some of those clothes I liked, just never felt right!  I especially love my portable Colour Profile that lives in my handbag, so I never buy the wrong colour again!I now feel more confident when I’m shopping & save lots of time (& money) by being able to immediately rule out whole sections at once.  All your style tips were great, and I’m looking forward to our next shopping trip!

Alison – Tennyson Point

Susie, thank you for giving me back the confidence to walk out my front door with pride.  My teenage children have been a little harsh over the years about my dress selection and you have turned that around with great advice and guided me to better choices in colour and style when shopping.  I love feeling great about myself, you made that happen.

Jenny – Wahroonga

My consultation with Susie really boosted my confidence and appreciation for my body shape.  I learned a lot about how I can project my personality, while showcasing my best assets! I realised I could dress in clothes that I originally thought do not suit my body shape but in fact highlight my best features. I discovered a new appreciation for my favourite pieces and knowledge of what to look for on building my future wardrobe. My consultation was an inspiring experience!  Susie made me feel comfortable and offered realistic advice that suited my personal style and body shape.

Narelle Thompson (Winner of a Personal Style Consultation at Vision Personal Training)

I was first introduced to Susie when she did a talk to a small group at my gym all about different body shapes and what kind of clothing is suitable for each shape. At the end of the talk, she was giving away a free personal consultation and I was keeping my fingers crossed that I would win it, because the talk was so interesting and I learnt so much. Susie has a great amount of knowledge and she explains it easily using pictures and examples. She was only too happy to answer any of our questions and kept stressing that we could ask her anything if we didn’t understand. My daughter and I decided to do a Personal Style Consultation and it was so detailed.  Susie spent such a long time with us and she is always friendly, happy and easy to understand. Nothing is too much trouble for her. We both came away with a much much better idea of what to look for in styles of clothing and I think this will make us better equipped when we go shopping, and come across pushy sales girls. We now look forward to her next talk on colours.

Vivian Sussman – Bellevue Hill

I was completely unaware of what colours suited and didn’t suit me.  Thank you for pointing out what colours I can wear.  Also the way you “threw together” dresses and scarves that you found in my wardrobe!  I was very impressed with your ability to be able to make a simple dress into a very interesting item by choosing the correct coloured accessories.  Your whole approach was so professional and I wish I had come to you earlier.  I have more confidence now when I put things together.

Maggie Kingsford-Smith – Bondi Junction

“I”ve heard some very complementory words about you from Tina and I would like to thank you very much for the extra effort you put into the session with Tina last Saturday. I know that it was a long and a hot day, and that you worked very hard to help Tina with her style. It was very well received and Tina is keen to follow your advice. That, in my opinion, is a big success!”

Andre Jedrzejczk (A wonderful Father who bought an Absolutely Fabulous package for his lovely daughter Tina)

I first met Susie at the Mudgee Field Days in 2014.  How could I pass up the opportunity to have my colours done by someone professional.  I have never seen a Stylist in my part of the country.  You might think you know what you look good in but that’s not always the case, especially for me.  Susie explained what colours I should be wearing to compliment my skin, eyes, hair colour etc.  I received my colour profile in the mail and it goes everywhere I go.  When Susie sent me an invitation to have a power hour with her in Grenfell, wow another chance to find out my body shape and what clothes suit me!  What a great time that was, very interesting, Susie told me my body shape and the things I need to draw attention to.  It’s so nice to meet a truly professional lady, who actually cares and knows her stuff, and nothing is too much trouble for her.  Thank you so much for your advice, it is very much appreciated, can’t believe how lucky I was to meet you and even better being “styled” by you.

“Meeting and booking a colour/style session with Susie Taylor was such a break through for me. Susie’s genuine and approachable manner immediately put me at ease. I was fascinated about what colours suit what complexions and that certain styles suit different people.

I would never have had the confidence to wear red before I met Susie. Susie’s advice has helped me with my inner confidence. I think I will look forward to shopping so much more now – knowing what will work and what won’t. Having a professional information sheet and pictures tailored to me, will be fantastic to use for future reference when I am trying to decide what to buy.

I would highly recommend Biddy and Jean to any woman – young or mature age, who would like a helping hand deciding what colours and styles suit them.”

Amy Wood – Grenfell

After Susie was guest speaker at a View Club meeting, she came to my home and did a Winter wardrobe organisation for me. I have found her to be very professional in her work and she has done much more than I expected. e.g. Finding suppliers for me on the internet, as I live in a smallish country town which is limited in shopping.

I have great fun mixing and matching as Susie suggested and my wardrobe possibilities have extended enormously by doing this. I feel the money I paid her to do it was well worth it, as I have many more imaginative ideas than before. I can buy clothes with more confidence, as Susie has told me which styles suit me best and I bought a colour swatch of the colours that suit me best, so I can take this in my handbag when I go shopping. Susie has answered all my queries promptly on the internet and has offered advice without me asking for it. She has sent photographs of the different combinations of clothes so I can’t forget them and they are hanging on the back door of my wardrobe for easy reference.

Susie herself is a very friendly, obliging person, easy to get on with. She doesn’t severely criticise your wardrobe but tells you where you have done well and where you could do better. My high neck jumpers were my main mistake and I have had fun buying some V neck or lower neck jumpers since she left. My cardigans and jackets were all ok.

All in all, working with Susie has been a very pleasurable experience.

“Since having my 1 hour Colour session with Susie, I purchased some new makeup in the colours suggested on the Colour Profile. It is amazing – I always thought my eyes were a plain and unexciting Green colour and always wished they were Blue or Brown but now the new makeup which is right for me, is enhancing the nice Green colour!!!! So amazing what some small changes will do!!!! I have been looking at them for years and never noticed!!!!

I have also bought a few items of clothing in colours which I wouldn’t have considered before and am surprised how they suit me. I bought a Green scarf and whenever I wear it everyone comments on how it suits me! Like lots of people I know, I have always worn Black, Black, Black and it is nice to be branching out into something different as I approach menopause.”

Leanne Parkman – Murringo

Thank you to Susie from Biddy & Jean, for coming to Caragabal for a Stylist session with 8 of my girlfriends. It was a valuable, relaxing, informative and fun afternoon! I would highly recommend this session for anyone looking for an excuse to get the girls around and talk about style! All the girls had an individual Colour & Shape session. Susie then gave a group talk, on what to wear to suit our body shape and colours. A great way to spend an afternoon!

Thanks again Susie!

Kylie Taylor – Caragabal

“Unique fund-raising event which was so popular that many attendees said we should run one at least once a year! Great fun too”.

Sally Hofman – Lambing Flat Enterprises – Young

A few weeks ago I spent 2 hours with this lovely lady. Susie went through colours, styles, jewellery, accessories, tips and makeup with me. It was a very fun, relaxed and inspitaional 2 hours.
Ladies – an appointment with Susie is a MUST! I was fortunate to have been able to tie my appointment in with a visit to Raffia & Co – Lisa Schaefer Millinery Grenfell. Go ahead – treat yourselves. It will be one of the best decisions you make 🙂
