It can be overwhelming to have a closet full of clothing and still feel you have “nothing to wear.” Clothes that are the wrong size, an unflattering fit, dated or simply unnecessary do nothing but clutter and complicate your daily routine. Together, we will decide what can be tailored, donated or consigned. I will show you how to build outfits from the foundation pieces you already own and help you plan strategic purchases to give you expanded options for upcoming seasons. Finally, I’ll coordinate your jewelry, scarves, neckties, shoes and handbags. Clients describe the closet consultation experience as liberating, educational and even life changing.
When I shop with a client, that client becomes my calling card – the visible proof of my skill, experience and creativity. But a personal shopping appointment is not about me, it’s really about my client. I draw my greatest inspiration from my client’s lifestyle, ensuring the selections we make will fit their daily needs. I will shop with you or for you, with the singular mission of creating looks that make you feel confident and beautiful.
A look book is a personalized journal I curate for clients to enable them to visualize and recreate their best looks from our time together. I include detailed notes to accompany photos of the styled outfits.
I work with large retailers, boutiques, businesses and nonprofits to design and style fashion shows. Working behind the scenes with live models – pulling pieces together and giving them their final polish before they hit the runway – is one of the things I love most about my work!
I help retailers develop floor plans for optimum visual appeal and to maximize sales. Shopping is so much more than acquiring a product; it should be a fun, pleasurable experience. I work to design windows that enchant passers-by and floor vignettes that tell a story and paint a picture – whether one of luxury or casual elegance and simplicity.
I have worked extensively in television, radio and print to educate and inspire audiences and to style media personalities. In addition, I’ve enjoyed presenting to business and social organizations as a keynote speaker. As the published author of “Portraits of Lifestyle Dressing: Your Style, Your Closet,” I’ve enjoyed writing as a creative outlet and an effective way to reach new audiences, and I’ve continued writing and styling articles for multiple regional lifestyle publications.
