Client Story

Corporate Makeover

  A major weight loss motivated this gal’s wardrobe makeover.  See how pale and tired she looks in the “Before” black and white striped tee shirt?  (Do you sense a theme here?)  Her green eyes, peachy skin and gorgeous auburn hair are just asking to be showcased in similarly warm tones of olive, rust and…

Petite Makeover

  Her petite stature made it easy for this bright young scientist to look like a student intern when she wore her typical polo shirt and hoodie.  An equally comfortable fine-gauge turtleneck sweater and contrasting cardigan communicate the presence her credentials deserve.  We added ruching to the side seams and sleeves of the red top…

Corporate Makeover

  This woman’s soft, warm coloring wasn’t being enhanced at all by her black pants and sweater.  See how her skin and hair glow when she changes into the cardigan in a range of camel and brown tones.  The shell underneath is a more muted teal than it looks in the photos, perfectly matching the…

Pants to Skirts Makeover

  This client insisted that she would never wear a skirt.  But this longer styling and darker print gave her the same figure elongation she loved in pants, but with far fewer fitting challenges.  Wearing the jacket slightly open makes your eye follow the narrow strip of blue sweater in a vertical direction, slimming her…

Laura’s Makeover

  Laura has a casual lifestyle, juggling her job as office manager of a very informal accounting firm (informal in dress, not in accounting principles that is!) and playing mom to two young sons.  But she also leads a very sophisticated life, literally traveling the world with her husband.  She needed a wardrobe that could…

Suzy’s Makeover

Suzy needed to rebuild her professional wardrobe after a major weight loss.  She came from a traditional professional background and was reflexively choosing dark, ultra-conservative clothes that gave her a hard-edged look entirely at odds with her warm, collegial management style.  We introduced her to softer colors and more stylish separates that maintained her professional…

Crystal’s Makeover

Crystal was being considered for a big promotion to a client-facing position, and her mentor tactfully shared that a more polished appearance would significantly improve her chances for the job.  Solid colors, more structured silhouettes,  hair and makeup updates all contributed to her new look.  We helped her build an entire new professional wardrobe in a…
