Reviews like this are the reason I love what I do

“ Visiting the girl cave was more like visiting a friend.
A friend who actually knew what I should try on.
I left with pieces I feel fabulous in but would never have imagined buying if I saw them on the shelf.
Janie not only knows what she is talking about,
she makes the experience a joy.”

My mission is to help you project your most confident, attractive and authentic self. I do this by designing a wardrobe that flatters your shape, compliments your completion and reflects your personality.

I haven’t always loved my own image like I do now. I’ve worn colours that weren’t my friend, worried about the numbers on the scales and tried to look a particular way because I felt I should. I know what it’s like to be unsatisfied with your own image in the mirror.

Many years ago I was inspired by Trinny and Susannah’s reality TV program, not merely by their fashion choices, but by the enormous impact they could have on a woman’s self-esteem. The reactions of the women on their show after a makeover left me in tears with them. Not long after this, I started my own journey towards becoming the Image Consultant I am today.

I’m a sun chasing, champagne loving, green tea-sipping woman of a certain age who doesn’t believe in following fashion trends. I believe that when we look great, we feel great, and when we feel great, we can conquer the world. I love working with women to find themselves through the way they present to the world.

What started as image consulting as Styledge by Janie, quickly grew into the Girl Cave also. As an image consultant I was struggling to find the right clothes to represent some of my clients, as the chain stores sell a lot of the same old same old. So I went looking for the perfect pair of jeans, the dress that flatters in comfort and style at the same time, the belt to pull it together and the accessories to finish the look. Once I started buying, I didn’t want to stop, and the Girl Cave grew from an idea, to a space where women come to try on clothes, and leave with a new confidence.

I love meeting new people and seeing what I can do to help them unlock their own style. So please, if you are thinking about a complete image overhaul, learning more about your colours, or just grabbing some clothes you won’t find in your local shopping centre, just say ‘Hi’ and we’ll take it from there.
