Gorgeous Me Styling Packages


Gorgeous Me's styling packages are available for men and women. Please note, Gorgeous Me is now based in Auckland but does have a register for visits to other centres.


Unless otherwise stated, Gorgeous Me's fee is $NZD115/hour (includes GST)*. 


1. styling-shopping SESSION - FROM $230

Determine your style and gain immediate confidence. We hit the shops for the entire session - shopping like you've never experienced. You will come away knowing how to style for your shape and what colours you suit. No obligation to buy. Minimum 2 hours.

Gorgeous Me receives generous discounts from a number of key retailers, discounts which it happily passes on to clients. The discounts help towards the styling fee.

These sessions are our most popular. 


"My advice is just go for it. I would recommend Lisa's expertise to anyone. You'll have lots of fun and look better than you ever thought you could. Put yourself in Lisa's hands, you won't regret it." Mary


"It's like shopping with your best friend." Bindy

2. Wardrobe Refresh


Do you have a truckload of clothes in your wardrobe but still nothing to wear? Are you sick of your clothes? 90% of people don't get maximum use out of their wardrobe, they don't fully mix 'n' match what they have. Lisa helps you see the potential. Your wardrobe will be re-energised, and so will you. Warning: like any of Lisa's sessions, it's exhausting but loads of fun, and a tad messy as we turn everything upside down! Minimum 2 hours.


"Thank you, thank you, thank you! I loved today. You're like a big sister who knows just what works on me - colour, shape, accessories. My own Trinny & Susannah in my own home (but much much nicer). I didn't know quite what to expect, but today was fun, inspiring, and put a spring in my step. Just what I wanted!" Jenny

“I’m a big girl and I’ve dreaded shopping in the past because I felt that I couldn’t find clothes to make me look good but all my theories have been blown out of the water. Lisa opened my eyes to a whole new world and even though I’m still a size 16, I’m now rocking the look!


I know what I should be wearing to highlight my best features and how to downplay the not so fabulous ones. My confidence levels have sky rocketed and I truly do feel gorgeous!!!


Thank you Lisa :)” Shamilla

"Being a mum over the last 8 years has been an amazing experience – but it has certainly changed my body shape, the amount of spare time I have for myself, and my clothing budget! So, a two hour session with Lisa has reinvigorated me and taken me from having a ‘basic wardrobe’ to a ‘wardrobe with choice’!


While I continue to receive compliments on my fabulous new clothes, the most surprising comments are about how my eyes now pop! I haven’t done anything differently but obviously the colours and styles Lisa has suggested has helped to enhance my eyes. Love it!


Lisa, I love your work and highly recommend you to everyone! You’re down to earth personality make the experience so much fun. Thanks again." Penny

"All 50 mumble years young ladies should invest in an afternoon with Lisa from Gorgeous Me. Put your best knickers on, take H2O for sustenance (which I forgot!) and wear easy clothes to disrobe with grace and ease (again I didn’t!). I think this experience would be like speed dating but is instead speed shopping with your bestie (BF) – with some great benefits:


  • Lisa doesn’t know your comfort zone so she introduces you to styles and colour you would normally bypass
  • She tells it like it is (but in a BF way) - and she knows what she is talking about
  • She is a shopping tornado whereas I falter after 40 minutes
  • You get the biggest changing rooms in all the stores and VIP treatment
  • And she hangs up all the clothes after you have tried them on :)

I loved my three hours with Lisa - we met as strangers and parted as friends.  I staggered home weighed down with bags and great styling advice and with the help of a glass or two of my favourite Sauvi, surveyed my wardrobe with fresh eyes and ideas from a totally new perspective.


Thanks Lisa, I had a ball." Bindy

"The session was fantastic, I feel so much more confident about knowing what styles and colours will suit me. You picked several items for me which I would never have looked twice at, but I absolutely loved them once I put them on. It’s just as well my daughter is a size 6, otherwise I’d never see my new black pants again. She’s already eyeing up the boots. Have already worn a couple of the outfits and had lots of compliments.


I don’t get a lot of time to go shopping, so to spend two hours with you and come away with pretty much everything I need within my budget (and no dud purchases) was a real win. It sure beats spending a day shopping in Wellington and going home frustrated and flat because nothing seems to look good. Will be booking another appointment with you towards summer! Cheers, Nickie"
