Wardrobe Consultation Services

No more closet full of "nothing to wear"

 

A wardrobe isn’t just a bunch of stuff in a closet.  It’s a carefully curated collection of garments and accessories, each of which fits you, flatters you and makes you feel fabulous … and which coordinate into countless outfits for every event in your life.

You should be able to reach into your closet blindfolded, pull out any piece and know that you can build at least three great looks with that item and walk right out the door – confident that you look like a million. You can’t?  Well together we can restructure your wardrobe to make it possible.

Step 1 – Closet Clean-Out

One client called this an “exorcism” for her closet full of confusion. But it’s really much gentler that that. Together we’ll review the pieces you own and purge those that don’t support the message you want your look to convey. You’ll learn why, so you won’t make those same mistakes again. We’ll re-envision some of your existing pieces — a hemline change or different buttons might just take a garment from “unbearable” to wearable. We’ll develop an organization system for your clothes and identify the missing pieces you need to round out your wardrobe assortment. Our objective is to create a wardrobe with a consistent theme – fewer clothes … endless possibilities. $125/hour 

Step 2 – Personal Shopping

The mall or the boutique scene can be overwhelming, but you’ll love shopping with a pro who can quickly zero in on the clothes and accessories that make you look and feel fabulous – your ideal colors, silhouettes and fit. Clients consistently say “I would never have picked that to try on.  How did you know it would look so great on me?” We’ll focus on items that work in multiple ways, so you can finally have the versatile wardrobe you’ve dreamed about, no matter the size of your budget.  We can shop at the stores you like best, or recommend retailers based on your preferences and our experience. You can take advantage of personal shopping services whether or not you have already done a Closet Clean-Out. $125/hour

Step 3 – Wardrobe Coordination

After that successful shopping trip … the transformation is just beginning.  We’ll blend your new and old favorites into sure-fire looks for every occasion.  We use a systematic approach to identify every possible combination – many you’d never spot on your own – and finish each look with the ideal shoe, legwear, handbag, jewelry and accessories.  And to help you remember … you’ll get a digital photo diary of all your new outfits. You’ll be amazed how easy it is to get dressed every morning when everything in your closet goes together and it all looks great on you. And the compliments aren’t so hard to take either. $125/hr

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s embarrassing … what if my closet is the worst mess you’ve ever seen?

Relax … this process isn’t about judging your tidiness or your wardrobe choices; it’s about creating a wardrobe that really works for you.  I’m not the fashion police, ready to give you a ticket for your style mistakes. Through the years of study I’ve learned to avoid those mistakes, and I love teaching clients those same concepts.

What should I do to get ready?

Just make sure all your clothes and accessories are available for review. I can’t give you good advice about items that are at the dry cleaner’s or loaned out to your sister.

How long does a wardrobe consultation take?

Specific circumstances vary widely of course, but the average time is about 2 hours for each step – clean-out, shopping and coordination.

What if I don’t agree with a specific recommendation?

This isn’t one of those high-pressure TV makeover shows. It’s real life, and final decisions are always yours. After all, it’s your clothing, your money, your life.  My job is to offer expert advice and education … not to force anything on you.

When is the best time for a wardrobe audit?

We can work productively any time you’re ready. Day of the week doesn’t matter, but Saturdays book up fast, so we can probably schedule a week day sooner.

If I don’t dress up for work, will this service still benefit me?

Unless you live in a nudist colony, I’m betting you want clothes that look great for all your lifestyle needs. In fact, my professional clients say they enjoy having better options for casual and dressy events, maybe even more than they enjoy their improved career wardrobes. And I’ve helped at-home moms, retirees and corporate wives with great results.

Is this service available for men too?

I really enjoy working with women’s wardrobes, but I have a colleague I’m happy to recommend for the man in your life.
