Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful safe space for empowerment. My styling session was a comfortable experience from the moment I entered the room. Kate has amazing attention to detail and the clothing chosen for me were beautiful; I felt seen for the first time in a long time. I feel very appreciative that I will have this armour to wear on the tough days ahead.
My experience with Kate and her incredible initiative "Haus of Armour" was just amazing.
She was full of happy bubbly energy which lifted my spirits immensely. We had such good laughs and she made the whole experience feel like you were out shopping with your best friend. Kate picked out items of clothing for me that felt exactly like me so I literally felt like I was putting my armour back on. I left feeling seen and valued and thoroughly spoiled. It was a truly heart-warming experience. I felt more like myself than I had in a long time.
Thank you for a great opportunity for me to feel I can be a beautiful woman again! A time that I spent yesterday in your boutique was a best time for me for last two court process years. The clothes which you choose for me make me feel stronger, give me a belief in myself and my successful future.
I just wanted to say thank you to Kate and Haus of Armour for the lovely afternoon I spent getting styled and for the beautiful clothes. I have never done ANYTHING like that EVER and never really get any time to do things for myself. As a working single Mum with no family support all my spare time is taken up with kids and so it was just lovely to do something just for me. I certainly never spend much money on quality clothes or even have much time to shop. The timing was perfect as I’d just secured extra safety for myself and my kids with a renewed AVO and have finally planned to move out of the area and so feel like a new chapter of my life is hopefully about to start after ten years of dealing with domestic violence. It felt so perfect that at this time I could get some new clothes to make me really feel like it was a fresh start. I think I had forgotten who I was over the years as you just work, deal with the kids and keeping everyone safe and it’s easy to lose yourself. Kate helped me remember the person I used to be and still am. Living with these situations affects your self-esteem so much without you even realising it. The whole idea of Haus of Armour just makes you really feel like someone actually cares and understands your experience and how it can affect your self-esteem.
I had lost my self-confidence and have struggled with self-esteem after my DV situation. Kate personalised and coordinated, she styled me up in a range of clothes and shoes, and put together a new look for me to reclaim a new sense of self and identity. I was so touched by this experience and I have been feeling a great sense of confidence and a freshness to start and rebuild my life. The benefits from this have had a huge impact on my positive mental state to be a confident woman. It has made a huge difference to my wellbeing.
Sometimes when you’re faced with dark times and sad circumstances, silver linings and glimmers of hope and strength come your way to empower you navigate stormy waters..
Starting over, facing new chapters, losing fear and feeling strong and confident seems like a lifetime away..
Kate and her support was definitely a silver lining.
Her approach, her skills, her ability to make you feel human again and like you’re spending time with a long lost friend is unique and extremely valuable.
Where I am today is built on many little nuggets of support and encouragement.
Kate and the Haus of Armour was one of those pieces…
I will always be grateful for that.
