For someone who writes and obsesses about fashion, I don't consider myself "Fabulous!" with a capital F and am constantly on the hunt for styling tips. Shopping has always been a somewhat haphazard endeavour; I rarely shop with an objective in mind, and many of my purchases have been languishing in the back of my closet simply because I haven't figured out a way to wear them with other pieces in my wardrobe. So when I heard that the inimitably stylish yet down to earth blogger behind Mademoiselle Robot was offering style consulting services through her new venture, Mademoiselle Style, I was excited about the prospect of getting an objective assessment. Also, I was secretly thrilled about being able to say to someone "Oh- you love this outfit? Thank you, dahling, my stylist helped me throw it together!" (I grew up in LA; I'm allowed my Hollywood daydreams!)

Mademoiselle Style now offers online consultations for those of us living outside the UK, and I haven't been able to use her services yet because I do not own a webcam. Yes, you read that correctly. The dream has been deferred... I need to get with the program soon! Argh!
But my loss, dear readers, is your gain! Dream Sequins will be giving away a Style Booster package to one lucky reader. Here's a description from the website:
"Get inspired! If you are happy with the clothes you have but need a little bit of inspiration. We will meet over a cup of tea (or on video chat if you are out of the UK) for a whirlwind introduction to the many simple ways in which you can update your current style. Learn how to do more with what you already have: the solution may already be in your wardrobe!
Style Booster summary:
- Get inspiration, a light style update.
- Just over an hour.
- No shopping necessary.
This service can take place anywhere you like, even available online!"
