Lockdown Challenge with Personal Stylist

Take the challenge to dress up and look good for yourself in lockdown

Hey guys it’s Carlene, I run the FREE Personal Styling service at intu Lakeside shopping Centre where my team and I have styled many of you for all occasions from proms to Christmas parties.

If you miss shopping at the Centre as much as I am then I have a challenge for you. I was scrolling through my Instagram reminiscing on the days (pre-lockdown) when I used to get excited about the new seasons trends arriving in the stores and how I would style them for my Personal Shopping appointments to inspire my clients to show them what great fashion you can buy in Centre.

Being on lockdown, it is SO easy not to make the effort in wearing a nice outfit or feel the need to. So, I have a challenge for you (and me) to ‘show up’ for yourself by making the decision that EVEN during lockdown you will wear something which makes you feel good.This can include keeping up with your skincare routine, applying make-up or just brushing your hair!

My motto for my Clients is, you can be ‘comfortable without compromise’ which means you can look good and feel great in clothes which are not ‘tent’ like or 2 sizes too big (or small).

Here’s the challenge:

Post a picture of you ‘showing up’ for yourself in an outfit which you bought from a store at intu Lakeside shopping centre. It can be an old or new picture of a full outfit, part of an outfit i.e. a pair of shoes or accessories, a haircut or colour you had at one of the salons or if you had your make up done in centre, we want to see this too!

Tag intu Lakeside and add my hashtag #comfortablewithoutcompromise for a chance to be featured on the intu Lakeside social channels.

To start the challenge here are a few pictures of me in outfits which I bought at stores at intu Lakeside! Looking forward to seeing all your posts and when the lockdown is lifted and we can resume our daily lives, I look forward to shopping with you all 😊
