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 - in person or virtually - we can restructure your wardrobe to make it possible.
Step 1 – Closet Clean-Out
An optimal wardrobe starts with eliminating any items that aren't your personal best. In person or over ZOOM, 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. Together we'll create a wardrobe with a consistent theme, fewer but better clothes … endless possibilities. $125/hour
Step 2 – Personal Shopping
Even if you've hated shopping at the mall or online, 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 your age, size, lifestyle or budget.
We can shop the lines you like best, or recommend retailers based on our experience. We can shop together whether or not we have done a Closet Clean-Out together. $125/hour
Step 3 – Wardrobe Coordination
That successful shopping experience is just a beginning. By uploading your items to an online "closet" I can help you coordinate new and old favorites into flattering looks for every occasion. We'll identify combinations you might never spot on your own – and finish each look with the ideal shoes and accessories. We can both access your digital closet any time … to spot new outfits, identify great new items to add, plan travel packing lists and much more. .
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
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.
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.
Specific circumstances vary widely of course, but the average time is about 2 hours for each step – clean-out, shopping and coordination.
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.
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.
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.
I really enjoy working with women’s wardrobes, but I have a colleague I’m happy to recommend for the man in your life.
