Is Hiring a Personal Stylist Right For You?

When new clients reach out to us about personal shopping they are always full of questions, understandably. Is working with a professional image consultant the right service for them? Hiring a professional personal stylist is an investment. Working one-on-one with a personal stylist and shopper to polish your image comprises a lot more to it than people initially think. It is an intimate process and involves monetary investment. Like any investment, you want to be sure that value for money is worth it and really going to deliver a result that will benefit you and your life.

CLOSET CONSULTATION, EDIT, & CLEANSE

Discover hidden style gems within your existing wardrobe and create new outfits from what you already own. We want you to love every item in your closet

Discover hidden style gems within your existing wardrobe and create new outfits from what you already own. We want you to love every item in your closet

We come straight to your home and storm your closet to find the gold that’s already there.

You never know what gems are hiding in there, the little sneaks. We help you discover those forgotten or unworn pieces and maximize your current wardrobe by pairing them with other stealthy hidden treasures. Cheapest fashion makeover ever!

Each item gets sorted into one of three piles: the Keep, Get Altered, and Retire to Goodwill piles.

Unfortunately, some people have more of a toxic dump situation in their wardrobes rather than secret treasure. Whatever the case is for you, we begin with an initial consultation, where we learn about you, your lifestyle, and your image goals.

Examine Your Existing Pieces

Then we work through your items to establish a focused wardrobe framework that complements your desired image. We establish pieces that work well on you, determine your body type and correct fit, and clear out unsuitable pieces. We'll give you honest, insightful feedback on what's happening with you and your closet.

On request, we will re-organize your closet.

We'll place every item in the most efficient and accessible position making it easy to find and combine.

We then show you how to create stylish outfits from your existing wardrobe. We can even help you with making the most of your accessories and shoes with your outfits. We'll guide you to understanding how to dress confidently for your lifestyle.

Bridging the Wardrobe Gaps

We will identify the gaps in your wardrobe and create a Shopping List Guide of what you need to purchase to have a whole and balanced wardrobe. Many clients have reported this process as life changing, epiphany filled, and liberating.

The reality is, most people wear 20% of their closets 80% of the time. Our goal for you is to create a wardrobe where you enjoy wearing 100% of it.

The next step is to fill in your wardrobe gaps with the personal shopping sprees.

The purchase of new pieces that play well with your existing items is key.

After your shopping spree(s), you can choose a follow up closet consult where we introduce your new items to your current items and create even more stylish love pairings.

Upon request, we will do a Look book for you. We take photos of your new outfits for your future reference to insure that style excellence is achieved with every outfit!

Contact us for more info or to set up an appointment!

ESTIMATED TIME: Typical closet consultations take between 2-5 hours dependent on the size of your wardrobe and what you want out of your closet consult.

MINIMUM SESSION TIMES: 2 to 2.5 hours is the minimum amount of time for any session depending on what location you're in. If your session happens to take less time (which is rare) you will still be charged for the minimum amount of time. Contact us to find out the minimum session time for your city.

DO YOU HAVE A GREAT FIRST IMPRESSION?

I introduced a new friend to some of my family members the other day and was completely embarrassed by my cousin. My cousin was not in a good mood and had no qualms of showing her displeasure, even to a perfect stranger. She stood 10 feet away from the rest of my family and when I introduced her to my friend (from 10 feet away I had to shout a little), she turned her back and gave a dismissive hand gesture. I was shocked and embarrassed.

Horrible first impressions can kill a lot of opportunities.

Most of the time, people’s first impressions of you is established in 5 to 7 seconds. It doesn’t take long. That first impression will most likely stick with them for a long time. Or make them forget you in an instant. Or even worse, want to forget you. Those 5 to 7 seconds are crucial.

 

THE ZOE EFFECT

Being a fashion and wardrobe stylist is not easy, but it's one of the most glamorized behind-the-scenes jobs around. Lots of young, aspiring people ask me how they can "become a stylist", like it's as simple as choosing to bob their hair or eat a burrito for lunch. They see stylists depicted in the media as getting to attend the hottest parties, being gifted items all the time, and getting to "shop for a living". This then makes them think "OMG, that would be so fun to get paid to do!"

What most of these people don't realize is that even Rachel Zoe worked very hard to get to where she is, and any of us actively in this career have dedicated years and lots of money (stocking our extensive kits, throwing freebies to potential clients/traveling distances to build our books, attending fashion/business school, agent fees) to get to where we are.

They happen to be meeting Zoe's public persona after she's been in it for over 20 years...
