Incredibly Skilled at Colour & Style!

” Spending time with Lara over zoom was amazing! Not only is she incredibly skilled at color and style, Lara was easy and fun to work with.

I particularly appreciated how honest and direct she was about both color and style. I left feeling more confident not just about what colors and styles I can invest in, but also how to wear the colors, styles and accessories I currently have.”

I suddenly had blue eyes that I hadn’t really seen before!

Lara was amazing. I am a natural cynic and so whilst curious about the colour analysis, was not convinced that it would work. How wrong was I!!! What an amazing experience. 

The style session that followed helped me realise that I can be confident in my own skin, and that it really doesn’t matter what others think and that I am who I am – so let’s dress like it!!”
