Born and raised in London, Sally enjoyed a successful twenty year career in fashion buying, working for several leading high street retailers including the Arcadia Group and Debenhams.
Now a mother of two, she had her very own ‘beige’ moment after the birth of her first child and realised how easy it is to neglect your appearance. Despite her long career in fashion she had to make considerable effort to get her image back on track when returning to work after maternity leave. Sharing this experience with friends showed her that many of them felt the same: their bodies had often changed, or they felt out of step with fashion, and they needed a friendly helping hand to get back on track. This inspired Sally to set up Queen Bee Styling and make styling accessible to everyone. Her aim is to create simple, affordable solutions for anyone who is not confident in their image. She believes that if we feel confident in how we look, we feel better about ourselves and this has a positive effect on our self esteem.
As well as personal styling, she presents a regular webinar with Capability Jane that supports women who need help with their image when returning to work after a break. She writes a regular article offering styling tips and advice on her website, as well as many other sites. Most recently she linked up with Beyond the School Run to record her first vlog. She also speaks at many women’s networks events.
