What specifically made you want to work with me?
We met at Reruns and I was so impressed by how the clothes in the store were styled, as well as how you were always so put together when it came to your personal style and I wanted to seek your advice and styling wisdom.
How did you feel about your closet, wardrobe, and style before our clean out styling session?
Like my closet was so crammed and random from so much thrift store shopping. I didn’t know what my style was. I just knew I liked a lot of different styles.
What was your reaction to the final result?
Learning how to put outfits together in a way that was unexpected, yet really “me.” Advice on what to keep vs. what to consign/donate. Jewelry advice and how to wear pieces with certain outfits. Shoe advice and pairing shoes with clothes. Learning about what styles compliment my figure/body shape. The benefits could go on and on!
What’s the #1 most valuable thing you got out of the clean out and styling?
I can’t even begin to describe how the closet clean out has improved my life. I feel more creative in the mornings when it’s time to get dressed because I can actually see what I have instead of just being overwhelmed by all that was in there. I feel more confident in my ability to put outfits together and I definitely feel like my clothes are a better expression of my true style…not just things I bought that were on sale/in my size.
I was already on a journey towards better health (as of today I’ve lost 50 pounds!) and the closet clean out couldn’t have come at a better time. I feel like I can wear stylish clothes that I never felt I could wear before and I feel like people would see me and think I was well dressed. I look forward to picking out my outfit for the day (something I used to LOVE as a kid/teen….but sort of lost sight of being heavy during my 20s). I really feel like I can conquer the world and my clothes/appearance has so much to do with that. I can’t thank you enough.
What would you say to someone who’s considering working with me?
I thought every bit of it was awesome and I wish we could have closet/clothes/styling time every week! It just makes my spirit smile because you care so deeply about what you do and the folks you work with. I think lots of women don’t realize they could enhance their personal style and your kind honesty would never make anyone feel bad (even if they were hopelessly challenged in the clothing area). I never felt judged, even about some of my odd/terrible items (those hideous black pumps! eesh) 🙂 you’re amazing and I think everybody should have the experience I have had.
