I had the most enjoyable time with Ann. What an amazing experience. I ran straight home and went through my wardrobe and WOW! I wish I took a before and after picture. It has only been 3 days and I have had compliments on my clothes (appearance) already! Ann is so professional and personable and an expert in her field. A beautiful lady. 5 stars!! Highly recommend!!
Session 1: Colour analysis and shopping for a new pair of specs frames. Prior to doing this I was winging it with my colour with some combinations working and others not so good. And my glasses were a bit boring and functional. Ann was great! She really opened up my eyes about colour combinations and my colour "palette" that I would never have thought of. She took me to a terrific optometrist to get new frames. The new frames matched up with my colours and I love them - not the usual boring frame styles - similar, but with a cool twist. That's the knowledge you pay for and you get Ann's opinion on whether the frames work or not which is really valuable. I recommend to other guys not to wing it with colours - go for the colour analysis - it's really valuable. Session 2: Wardrobe audit and targeted shopping. Having done the colour analysis the next step was to go through the wardrobe and get some decent threads. I did a pre-audit chuck out and I thought it'd be easy from that point. Once Ann got into the wardrobe we started to see 1) most of my clothes were too baggy; and 2) the colours were mostly pretty bad, making me look washed out. However, a few of my clothes (shirts and jacket) got the tick of approval and Ann showed me the best way to wear these pieces. Anyway, I could see I made a lot of expensive mistakes with clothes. Then off to the shops - not my favourite activity - and I just left it all in Ann's capable hands. I wasn't disappointed. Ann has a keen eye for colour, fashion and fit. She picked out clothes and shoes I would never have had the confidence to try on. It was a real eye-opener. We managed in a few hours to re-stock my wardrobe reasonably inexpensively. I was very happy to have clothes that 1) actually fit me, 2) align with my colour palette, and 3) can be easily mixed and matched. I now have a really good wardrobe that I can now maintain, rather than starting from scratch again and again after making bad choices. The whole process was extremely worthwhile and I owe Ann many thanks for opening up a world of colour to me!

Hi Ann, Thank you for your professionalism and time on Saturday. What an interesting session! No doubt you noticed I tried to grasp all the concepts as time flew by! Your studio, like your own style, was certainly well-presented and exactly what I was there to learn - to present my best self. Armed with your color wheel, I started tackling my wardrobe today. It’s a relief to see the growing pile of items are making their exit - items which will better serve someone else. Thankfully, I note I already dress in line with some of your recommendations. Colour consultation should be part of every woman’s toolbox. We have to get dressed every day - why not look and feel better while we’re at it? (Saving time and money is just a bonus.) Your accompanying booklet is also very informative and a great resource. Who would’ve thought there is so much to learn regarding color in dressing? I’m sure we’ve merely covered the basics and there is far more to learn. What a fascinating area. I look forward to applying my newly acquired knowledge may see you again in the future! You must enjoy your job and empowering people. Here’s to changing lives- one wardrobe at a time!
I had been working from home for around two years and had completely lost touch with what clothes I liked, let alone what style or colour suited me. I was at a loss and shopping for clothes was no longer fun... that was until I met Ann from Image Confidence! I treated myself to a one on one colour and style consultation. I learned about the colours and style that suited me and my body shape. I learned how to use colour and style to accentuate things I like about my body shape and size. The consultation included a personalised colour reference chart that I can take shopping with me as well as a detailed style book covering everything from clothing to shoes, accessories and hairstyles. I also decided that to really give me the confidence to find ‘my style’ that a shopping trip with Ann would be perfect. I met Ann in the city after she had already done a pre shop. I was able to quite literally step into the fitting room and try on dozens of items all of which were ‘my colours and styles’. It let me quickly identify real examples of the types of clothes and shoes we had discussed during the colour and style consult. I left the shopping trip with new jeans, tops and shoes (4 pairs... minor detail!!). I’d highly recommend Image Confidence to anyone that just needs to find a little bit of their own style and sass!! Thank you Ann for the entire experience...
I have recently booked and thoroughly enjoyed a wardrobe audit and shopping trip with Ann Vodicka of Image Confidence. Ann has been able to create an amazing array of outfits for both business and relaxed from my wardrobe and created a recommended list of items which were sourced and ready waiting to try on during my shopping trip. Ann identified suitable pieces to compliment my wardrobe and with her gentle encouragement, she enabled me to see beyond my comfort zone and discover a new world, which I have embraced! Ann is so kind, caring and professional. Her commitment to her work is outstanding and I am so pleased I have had the opportunity to work closely with Ann and have her colour and style my world. Forever grateful, Kay

With a second baby in tow and my maternity leave coming to an end, it was time to help me look beyond my ‘jeans and trainers uniform', so I enlisted Ann’s help to do a wardrobe audit session. We removed the pieces that needed to go then created over a dozen 'yummy mummy' looks for the daycare run and weekends out of the keepers - and a couple of corporate looks as well to give me both confidence and importantly, speed, when getting dressed in the mornings. It’s fun to shop in your own closet and with Ann’s expert help, learn how to mix and match different pieces together to create winning combinations. It really is amazing how much you already have when you feel you have nothing to wear. I highly recommend this service for any busy mums who could do with a wardrobe revival as you may be transitioning back to work.

I was very lucky to get introduced to the incredibly fashionable Ann Vodicka through a friend. She is a Fashion Coach and it only takes a 7 second glance at her to know that she knows what she’s doing. I first meet her face to face (in the real world) when she came to one of our Community Workshops and in a short space of time I was impressed. Why? The simple reason is that you can tell she has the goods. She is intelligent, extremely fashionable, gets that people are different and totally impressed me (and many others) with her applied knowledge... ...The clothing, health, confidence, posture, tonality and the like; it all matters. Make sure you have it (just like Ann Vodicka does).
It takes a brave woman to let someone into the inner sanctum that is their wardrobe but trust me it is worth it! I must confess my wardrobe wasn't a happy place to be: crowded, disorganised and dysfunctional. I had so many clothes but nothing to wear and would buy outfits that I seldom wore. Ann came to my rescue. I had the basics but just needed to get my confidence back and reintroduce some colour and more jewellery into the mix. I have learnt that less is more, quality over quantity and planning is key. My wardrobe looks great, is functional and I can easily grab what I want. I went shopping the other day and I didn't buy a thing - no more impulse buying. Ann is ultra professional, friendly and persuasive. Thanks so much for your help, I couldn't have done it without you.
Several weeks ago, I mentioned to Ann Vodicka that I needed to buy some casual clothes for the summer. Now I am of a ‘larger’ build, I have always found it difficult to find clothes in which I feel comfortable and yet look stylish. I was talking with Ann Vodicka about this predicament and she suggested that I use her to resolve this issue. We met in Sydney City Centre and it became very obvious to me that Ann had been doing some investigating prior to meeting me. The next three hours were a dream. Ann took me to a couple of stores that I never knew existed and the choice and quality of clothes in these shops were excellent! There was one particular shop that I really enjoyed. Ann had already discussed with me the colours that I liked as well as introducing the idea of a couple of other colours. I never once felt ‘pushed’ or ‘influenced’ against my will. We walked through one particular shop and I saw shirts, jackets, trousers, belts, ties and a host of other clothing items and accessories. My fear of ‘will they look ok when I put them on,’ soon disappeared. Ann deftly carried several items of clothing over her arm as we were browsing through this store. I finally went into the changing room and tried on clothes that I really liked and then some that I would never have thought would have suited me but guess what? They did!! Ann kept on bringing clothes and taking out the ones that I really liked. Before I knew it, I had a wardrobe that I was so proud of. Ann made the difference for me and to be candidly honest, I received several compliments from family and friends. This was a ‘first’ for me. But I was blown away when at a concert the day after I went shopping with Ann, a complete stranger came up to me and complimented me on the outfit I was wearing, courtesy of Ann’s experience. Will I use Ann again? Of course I will!! Thank you Ann.
Like a lot of people I had a wardrobe full of mismatched pieces and nothing to wear. I had my "colours done" more than 20 years ago and thought I knew what suited me. But my session with Ann was a wonderful eye opener. Ann made the it fun, relaxing, informative and comprehensive. We covered everything from fabric colours, patterns and combinations to clothes styles and make up tips. It's changed the way I shop for clothes and accessories and how I combine the existing pieces in my wardrobe and it really makes a difference. It's given me the confidence to try colours and styles I once avoided and I must say I'm really, really happy with the results.
