About Kate

Once upon, a time a very long time ago, there was a very ordinary adolescent who really disliked the way her body shape was evolving.  Yep!  That was me.  


My hips and thighs were way too wide for my liking and I spent the next couple of decades trying to hide this part of my body - which I called my 'saddle bags'.


Then, not long after, my quiet, blend-into-the-background mother did something quite uncharacteristic and joined a six week course to learn about her colours and how to dress her body shape.


Well, I could barely believe my mother's transformation and watched in fascination as  she began having to field compliments and received the most unexpected {yet welcome} attention.


Fast forward a decade or so, I emigrated from England to Australia, got married, had two children and decided to get professional training in this colour and image passion (read obsession) that I still had. 


Now I get to teach my craft and play dress-ups with other forty-plus women who damn well refuse to be middle aged, and whose image has lost its way! 

These days I work from my Recycled Clothing boutique, which doubles as my Consulting Room, here in Darlington, Western Australia. 


It's literally like working in a giant wardrobe!  Oh the joy!



The first, and arguably the most important step in getting your image right is understanding which colours make you look amazing.


Being stylish is knowing how to dress yourself.  Here you'll understand your own style personality, body shape and body proportions - and how to choose clothes to flatter them. 

Recycled Clothing Boutique


The Colour me Kate Recycled Clothing boutique is a clothing consignment shop for ladies' pre-loved clothing located in the Perth Hills suburb of Darlington.


You'll find: 

  • Impeccable quality ladies clothes and accessories.  

  • Colourful or neutral clothes.  (No black.  Colour me Kate is all about colour, after all!)

  • Stylish pieces.  (It doesn't have to be up-to-the-minute on-trend, but must be a currently desirable or classic style.)

  • Vintage and retro styles.  (Good quality fabrics, in currently popular styles.)

  • Smart/casual styles. (No corporate or evening wear.)

The shop is located above The Little Nook Cafe, so ladies who want to browse the treasures of the shop at their leisure can order their coffee and have it brought up.  Or your lunch can be prepared downstairs whilst you're busy trying on clothes upstairs.
