One hour. We could all confess to easily losing an hour watching Marie Kondo on Netflix, being on Instagram, tweeting, posting, or texting. We could easily gain an hour by meditating, observing, or breathing. What if you spent one hour changing how the world sees you? No magic wands or genie lamps required to achieve this goal. All it takes is one phone call to schedule a consultation appointment with me. What is there for you to gain? Seven outfits, each one a unique expression of your authentic self. What is there to lose? Clothing that no longer suits you.
My initial 30-minute consultation is free. Those tweets, posts, texts can wait! The time to express your confident, true self is now! By expressing yourself through your wardrobe you create a better, more effective, lasting presence. After the Closet Refresh appointment, you will have a style versus a random ownership of items.
If you want to look and feel better, ask yourself what holds you back from making that step forward. Are you one of those clients that feels frustration when you open your closet door? Do you feel stressed about what to wear to weddings, networking meetings, funerals, or job interviews? You are not alone. I have guided women to recreate wardrobes that make them succeed at each life transition.
Some of my clients have given up on style. They dismiss it, as if it’s something that only occurred in their 20’s. Think again! Style can be harnessed and showcased at any age. Let me help you!
Hiring an expert is a fast way to learn about what is outdated in your closet, what to keep and what to give up, how to shop your own closet and how to own your personal style. I will help you remove blinders about your own clothes. It’s time to see the beautiful things in your closet with a fresh view. One phone call. One hour. Seven new outfits. Remember, it’s a new year and it’s time to show the world the new you!
Same clothes, Fresh perspective
We are on the cusp of winter. Those sweaters and scarves are already starting to feel dull and drab. The temptation to splurge on a new item and matching boots is palpable. However, those 2018 Christmas gift expenses limit your new year personal spending budget. Does this conundrum sound familiar? Call me! It is time for a Closet Refresh! Here’s how the process works…
Step 1: Envision
We are going to create a wardrobe that matches the true you! In order to do this, I need to get to know you. Before I come to your home, I will assign you a quick, fun homework assignment. I will ask you to create a vision board depicting a dream wardrobe of your choice. This could be magazine cut-outs pasted on construction paper, or, it could be images found online through Pinterest and other apps or websites. While you are creating your vision board, it is important to think about who you are and how you want to express yourself. We will review your vision board together, so I have a clear understanding of your authentic self. My goal from this point forward will be to help you engage your authentic self through your wardrobe.
Step 2: Make Way for the Rolling Rack!
Now we are ready to create your unique style! I will bring my portable rolling rack to assist us in categorizing your wardrobe. We will go through the contents and decide which items stay and which items go. I will sort through your outerwear, footwear, and accessories, too. In the end, you will have items to donate, items to sell, items to clean/repair, and items to keep. You might have some immediate ideas of things you would like to purge. Feel free to start this process before I arrive. If this step sounds overwhelming, do not worry — we can do it together. The goal of this step is to create your style. I will never force you to get rid of something or to keep something. If an item is sentimental but outdated, I can give you tips and tricks on enlivening well-worn favorites.
Step 3: Reveal Your Hidden Treasures
We will build seven new looks, based on the items you decide to keep. This process is fun and surprising! We will purge unwanted items and repurpose those items you decide to keep. Each client’s closet is full of hidden treasures!
Step 4: Create a Focused Shopping List
We will create a shopping list. The list will consist of items you want and also consist of “gaps” in your wardrobe. On your next shopping trip, this list will help you to stay laser-focused and stop impulse purchasing. By this step in the process, you will feel confident with your new look. The days of wondering “what should I wear?” are over!
Step 5: Charge your Cell Phone
I will have you try on these new outfits. I will take photos of you in your new outfits so you can recreate them later. These photos will become part of your personal “Look Book.” Next time you go shopping, you can refer to the Look Book to help you stay focused. You are now ready to wear those seven capsule outfits! At this step, I will ask you to write in a journal about your experience. The Look Book will help us to tweak your outfits moving forward.

Self-care comes in many forms. For some, it is a pedicure and a personal day off from work. For others, it is eating cheesecake while watching a reality TV show.
It is fascinating to hear the range of definitions when I ask my clients to describe their own form of self-care. However, there is one common thread between my clients. Each of them knows that mastering one’s closet is a powerful form of self-care.
Many of the clients I service view their closet like a black hole, an abyss they stare into at the start of each day or before major evening events. There is an unexpected gain from working with a stylist— you will end up saving time and money simply by reconfiguring your wardrobe.
Life is too short to be stressed about fashion! I can assure you, it feels great to have a collection of comfortable clothing that fits well and looks terrific. After engaging my services, you will end up with a rack of clothes organized into outfits that both flatter your body and skin tone, while reflecting your individual style.
As a wardrobe stylist, I have one goal in mind. I want each client to feel de-stressed and well-dressed, as a result of my wardrobe intervention. The first step toward this goal is to contact me for a 30 minute free consultation.
The new year is upon us along with our annual ritual of making resolutions. Now is the time to choose self-care as a way to look and feel great! Happy 2019!
