Hi, I’m Imogene - the Founder and Director of Spree with Me.

I'm a Brisbane entrepreneur and mum, with two young girls. My personal background is in creative industries management and direction, strategic marketing and small business career coaching.

I am inspired to build a legacy of self-confident and financially independent women* who empower one another.

I developed Spree with Me so that more people can benefit from meeting people who can help with their increased self-confidence. I am inspired to see more people reconnect with with their authentic self, to being open to trying new things, and to encourage new adventures.

Spree with Me is a concept that originated because it’s the type of service I’d like to use myself. I saw the opportunity to improve access to personal shopping and styling services. I also discovered the issues stylists face when starting their own freelance enterprise. And I knew I had a solution that could help.

The idea stemmed from when I was holidaying and kept getting stuck in the ‘tourist traps’ when I was shopping. I wanted to buy unique local items and local designer fashion, and to meet a like-minded local to guide me to where they shopped. I’ve also wanted a similar service of a friendly local when I wasted time on holiday in Australia in the hunt for stores I’d read about in blogs or seen on Instagram. Furthermore, I'm embarrassed to mention the amount of time and money I’ve wasted searching online for 'the perfect dress', which wasn't so perfect for me when it arrived. About a year after my second baby, I realised that I’d accidentally slid into ‘daggy mum mode’; my confidence needed a boost and my wardrobe needed a revamp. I wanted to experience using a personal stylist but I found it surprisingly difficult to find a local stylist in Brisbane, someone who resonated with my style, my budget and me. Enter: Spree With Me!

Basically… I love meeting authentic people, offline. I love connecting with people and having fun. I love generously exchanging ideas. I love when women support each other and when their words and actions lift each other up. 

Now it’s your time to feel be-YOU-tiful. It’s your time to feel confident, pampered, and to truly embrace your individual style.

Our Style Squad are fabulous and savvy women who are fun, open, empowered and supportive of you and each other, and celebrate each other’s successes.

I prefer to use 'us' when I refer to Spree with Me; because it's a collective, and one we'd love you to be a part of. Come join us!

Love and fabulousness,

Imogene & the Style Squad
