Your Personal Fashion Stylist & Australian Life & Style Blog
“Your Best Asset is Your Individuality” Sally Steele
Welcome to STEELEMyStyle !
Need a Personal Stylist, Personal Shopper or Image Consultant in Brisbane & beyond ?
Want a Style Makeover or help getting out of a Style Rut ?
My name is Sally Steele, and I run a rather unique mobile business as Style Mentor, Personal Shopper & Image Consultant in Brisbane. I also have clients in other Australian cities, as well as overseas- thanks to the beauty of technology. I am also an Australian fashion, life & style blogger with a distinctive point of view, resulting from my colourful, varied & well-travelled background.
I have been working in the film & fashion industries for well over a decade and as a busy working mother to two girls under 7 yrs old, I know all too well about the challenging reality of maintaining personal style and looking a bit more polished on a daily basis. This is why I established STEELEMyStyle; to provide clients and followers with the knowledge, resources & guidance they need to discover their inner style, express their individuality, and pull together a great look effortlessly.
With my many years experience in marketing, communciations & branding, the essence of what I do is – maximise potential. This is not just about how you dress, I get down to the core of how you feel about yourself, your life now and help you to move forward and unlock your maximum potential.
I’m no label junkie or celebrity copycat; I am a stylist for the individual.
Personally, I like to mix high-end Designer pieces & emerging foreign designers, with quality & fun UK and Australian high street and Vintage or thrift finds. I am not interested in disposable, unethical, cheap fashion that supports landfill or sweat shops and promotes over-consumerism.
A Glaswegian by birth, I studied French Literature at St Andrews University, before spending as much time as possible in the fashion capitals of the world. Since then, I’ve worked all over Europe, as well as Pakistan, Thailand, Japan, the Middle East, and Australia, in a variety of roles. Most recently, I was the managing director of Gallus & Co, a Sydney publicity and marketing firm. In that position, I worked with famously stylish celebs including Cate Blanchett, Russell Crowe, Geena Davis, Nicole Kidman, Hugo Weaving, Richard E Grant, Sam Worthington and Abbie Cornish. This totally invaluable backstage pass to the film, TV and fashion industries over the years means I now know how to make anybody look like they belong on the A-list!

“Give someone a Makeover and they’ll look great for a day.
Teach them some Style & they’ll rock it forever” Sally Steele
This quote really encapsulates what I am about here at STEELEMyStyle.
There are 100’s of makeover shows, How To guides & body shape rules out there. Most TV morning shows & Women’s magazines are awash with regular from Drab to Fab type stories & we all gasp at the dramatic Before & Afters.
Anyone I know can trot out the stats about women on average wearing only 20% of their wardrobe but for me –
Style is not formulaic.
Style is as individual as one’s fingerprint and my mission at STEELEMyStyle is helping Women & Men at any stage, get out of their Style Rut and overcome their own personal Style Challenges.
The aim is to have clients enjoying the life they are leading right now, looking great & wearing clothes that truly express who they are inside whilst fit the reality of their particular lifestyle & budget.
Everyone loves a bit of pampering & a totally new look – but at STEELEMyStyle if a client opts for one of our Style Makeovers then it is geared towards their reality & totally maintainable.
The main focus for me is that when I return three months later to see how folks are doing – they feel confident & own their new look & can maintain it all even with all the Style Challenges they may face.
Children, Serious Illness, Stress, Overwork, Surgery, Divorce, Remarriage – even just the reality of our busy lives has an impact and can easily push Style to the back of the queue.
It is so easy to lose your Inner Style.
In the last 7 yrs, I have had my fair share of Style Challenges and have been completely demoralized.
My wardrobe has had to change because like many women I have found my lifestyle has completely altered (from Company Director to Mama-on-the-Run). No longer do I spend most of my time dressed to impress while out and about at client meetings, or in a killer frock & heels at an evening Film event or running the red carpet.
Nowadays, if I am not with clients styling & shopping, meeting with industry at evening events or at home working or writing the blog, I am a Mama-on-the-Run with my 2 little children – in parks, museums, at their dance and swimming classes or doing household chores while they play.
Throw in the Post-Baby #2 body changes for good measure & you have a major Style rethink.
At first with #1 Bubs I asked myself “How do I still feel like “Me” in maternity wear ?”
But the biggest Style Challenge for me was & often still is – “How on earth do I get out into the world with a shred of Style when I am lucky if I get to have a shower in the morning- never mind anything else ?”
I was never high maintenance, but before kids I would spend about 45mins getting ready – now like most parents or people caring for others, if I have a full uninterrupted 10 minutes to get myself together in the morning without vegemite fingers prompting an outfit change I punch the air and give a Whoo- Whoo !
Despite all of that I have realised that I NEED to express a piece of myself in what I am wearing every.. single.. day. It doesn’t have to be much but the difference it makes is huge.
It’s all about embracing and enjoying the person you are, the shape you’re in, the stage you’re at and the life you are leading at the moment.. with Style !
So at STEELEMyStyle I will help you find your Inner Style, and achieve the look you want – whether you want to top the glamour stakes, look sharp in a suit, rock leopard print in your 60s, completely transform your look or like me just be a forty something Mama-on-the-Run with a bit more gloss, individuality & fun.
Whatever stage of life you are at – you can rock it in style !
Whether it’s for you, your partner, mother, daughter, son, sister, wife, work colleague or friend.
