We love fashion. It comes naturally for us, but for many it can be a a long road of being 'sold into' the wrong styles and a wardrobe of clothes that you never wear - or feel good in.
At Magpie Style, we curate and fit-test everything on offer to ensure it lasts for years in your wardrobe. We value cost-per-wear over price so that you get the best for your money in the long run.
In the showroom, we offer personalised styling advice for clients during complementary individual appointments, at the Friday fashion boutique and through our online store.

Bridget works with clients at the Magpie Style showroom on an individual or group level and helps with wardrobe planning, clothing choices or through personal shopping experiences.
