My Story - Marina Hirst, Intimo Consultant.
Thank you so much for a wonderful day on Sunday. Quite frankly I did not know what to expect which was great and now I can understand and endorse the benefit of a personal stylist and image consultant!
My motivation to attend a Jump the Q Styling Workshop was twofold. Initially I thought I would be able to educate other ladies on wearing the correct fitting lingerie (which is my Intimo Business) as well as showing the versatility of our travel/leisure wardrobe. My second aim was to learn how to create a more casual look for myself as I tend to dress up most days and find it difficult to create the “school run” look.
However what I learnt was so much more!
I learnt the difference between an Image Consultant and a Stylist and the functions that each perform.
I learnt the importance of de-cluttering and sorting out your current wardrobe, the function of core garments and how you can change looks, simply by accessorising or adding one or two fashion pieces.
I discovered what my style was and how a Stylist can save you time and money and can contribute to your existing wardrobe. I learnt about which designers or retail outlets suit what personality/body type and where to shop and how to create a casual look.
I learnt about fabric, the importance of quality and how to “mix and match” with standard pieces.
I discovered that shopping could be fun and not a chore if you do it with a STYLIST!
Most importantly I was encouraged to look “beyond my comfort zone” and to try something different.
Hence the “before and after photo’s” attached.
I never believed that my size 14 should or could wear a LBD (little black dress) which Chanel has always encouraged every woman to own. So when we were on our shopping trip and popped into “Saba” , Rachel pointed to this little number and asked me to try it on, for fun! I laughed, told her it “wasn’t me” and could not wear such a sexy dress. She insisted I entertain her, and being the whacky woman that I am, I decided to do so!
Wow! I just loved it and felt so beautiful and sexy! I could not believe how the cut/style and fabric luxuriated like a second skin onto my body and made me feel wonderful! I very much believe in empowering woman to feel confident from within and without (through Intimo) and yet here I was experiencing the same glorious feeling of confidence!
Hence, I now own a gorgeous Little Black Dress and on my first occasion of wearing it in public I got compliments galore from with some gorgeous Italian men who appreciated my appearance! And I felt great!!
Thank you Rachel, for allowing me to discover another side to the woman I thought I was...Marina Hirst

Reply from Rachel Quilty, Jump the Q:
Love it! You look gorgeous. Great photos. What an inspiring woman you are. I love your enthusiasm and passion. I am glad you found the Style workshop valuable and I really appreciate your thoughtful comments.
Thanks again for the Intimo Styling session. It was lovely to spend some time with you and try on some of the fabulous Intimo range. Beautiful modal fabric. Sue White has created a wonderful product range. My new lounge wear will be fantastic to travel in next month while I am in the UK and the USA.
Next time ....let’s have a glass of wine somewhere close to catch up on the girl stuff.
Look after yourself.
