Frequently Asked Questions

How do you charge for your services?
I charge by the hour for individualized sessions, or my packages (link to pricing/packages page) reduce my rate a bit. If you don’t see exactly what you are looking for, you can contact me and we can put together a custom package.
What is the benefit of hiring you over working with the store sales associate?
I will always give you impartial honesty, and I have no stake in where you buy your clothing or how much you spend doing so. Helping you look great and feel your best is my end goal.
I know I need some new clothes, but can't start from scratch and don't have a huge budget. Can you help me?
Definitely! Together, we will sort through your existing wardrobe. We will identify pieces that you love and look great in to use as a base. I can teach you tricks, so that whatever the occasion, you can dress with confidence going forward. These tricks will most importantly help you save money moving forward, by teaching you to avoid purchasing the wrong items for your style and existing wardrobe.
My body has recently changed because I’ve lost or gained weight. How do I get started again with a limited budget?
It is common for our bodies to change throughout our lives. Whether you just experienced childbirth or your weight has changed, updating your wardrobe can be an important step in adjusting to a new lifestyle. It is very important to dress for the body you have and not the body you had or want. I can help you invest in staple items to get you started. We will focus on identifying and highlighting what you love about your body. We will also figure out what is missing from your wardrobe, so that you can add to it efficiently over time.
How do you figure out my style if I don't even know what it is?
We will talk about your lifestyle. This might mean you need pieces for working out, work, school, and day-to-day wear. Perhaps that will include something else for you as well. After we identify your needs, we will talk about other people whose style you admire and go through photos of clothing that you are drawn to. This will give us a starting point, which we can fine tune during your closet evaluation and personal shopping trip.
My lifestyle has changed and I don't know how to dress for it.
Your clothing needs to change along with your lifestyle. First, I will help you identify what your personal style looks like. Next, I will help you find pieces from your existing wardrobe that you feel good in. Then we will find new key pieces to add to what you already have. This will make it easy to transition into your new lifestyle.
Do you work with men?
Absolutely. I’ve helped many men with their wardrobes. A lot of the same principles apply to both sexes. Everyone wants to look good and feel confident when they leave the house and I can definitely help anyone with that.
I have a formal event coming up and nothing to wear – help!
I’m on it! Let’s discuss the event, location, expected weather, your budget and your expectations.
I’ll help you find something incredible.
Are you going to dress me in things I am not comfortable in?
Absolutely not. My job is all about helping you feel great and love your wardrobe. I have heard from clients that they are afraid that a stylist is going to “make” them dress a certain way. That is the last thing I want to do. Everyone has his or her own Style Personality. You may not know what that looks like, however, after a brief exercise it becomes pretty clear to me and I can help you recognize it more easily. Then we work to make sure that everything you have and buy going forward fits your Style Personality and looks great on you.
