1.    I know I’m in a style rut and can do better but I don’t know where to start. How will you help me?
First, we’ll define your style based on your personal priorities and style goals. Once I understand how you love spending your time, I’ll be able to create your personalized wardrobe – one that’s full of classic pieces that you’ll be able to dress up and down with statement accents every day. I’ll also make sure you know exactly what colors and fits help you look amazing so you’re free to focus on what really matters – your life!

2.    I have tons of clothes but only wear five things. Is everyone this horrible at shopping?
No, and you’re not either! Shopping isn’t easy which is why so many women feel like they’re constantly coming home with the same pieces. As your style consultant, I’ll help you find the pieces that work for you and streamline your closet so you’re ready to create incredible outfits every day.

3.    What if there’s nothing worth saving in my closet?
During our first session together, I may ask if I can look through your closet. I often find there are fabulous pieces hidden away in there that we can use to build a client’s core wardrobe. But please, don’t worry! I’m won’t throw away all your clothes! Depending on your style needs, we will “shop your closet” or spend our time shopping for new pieces that enhance what you already own.

4.     I have a hard time finding clothes that fit me. Will you be able to help me?
I work with clients of all shapes and sizes! Many of them have a hard time finding clothes that fit right, especially after having a baby or a major life change. As your style consultant, I want you to embrace your body and dress for you not for trends.I’ll help you figure out where to shop, what styles to look for, and how to find the perfect fit. Together, we’ll create a polished wardrobe that makes you feel and look great!

5.     What if I can’t afford to shop at expensive stores and boutiques?
I’m here to support you and your budget. We’ll work together to create a budget you’re comfortable with, and make sure we only visit stores within your budget. I believe in smart investments and am always on the lookout for pieces that make women feel and look great without breaking the bank.

6.     Will you be able to help me if my style is different from yours?
Absolutely! We’re all unique with our own individual style goals so if blazers, jeans, and statement jewelry give you heartburn, that’s okay! As yourstyle consultant, I am committed to developing and enhancing your personal style. This means finding new ways to bring your style to life with statement pieces, smart investments and a classic wardrobe you’re confident with. I will never chase trends and push fast fashion on you. Getting dressed should feel exciting which is why I want you to look like the most authentic and fabulous version of yourself every day. 

7.     How do I know if hiring a style consultant is right for me?
Before we get started, we’ll have a complimentary 30-minute phone conversation. This way, we can discuss your personal style goals, get to know each other a bit and figure out which of my services will benefit your lifestyle the most. I’ll be able to answer all of your questions and address your concerns, helping you decide if hiring a style consultant is the right move. 

8.     Why should I hire you instead of a similar style consultant or personal stylist service?
Personal stylist websites use algorithms to select clothing for you. I’ll give you a personal experience that you won’t be able to find anywhere else because I’ll get to know you. Your goals, your style needs, your day-to-day life. No website can match the one-on-one experience we’ll have. When we’re together, I’ll share expert tips, find your best fit and color palette. I’ll never push you to purchase certain brands due to a hidden financial motivation because my only priority is helping you feel fabulous in your clothes!

9.     Can hiring a style consultant save me time and money?
100%! With me at your side, you won’t have to waste time stress shopping all over town because you don’t have a dress to wear to that last-minute event this weekend. Instead, you’ll have a closet full of new looks built from pieces you already own or have strategically purchased. I’ll teach you how to create a focused shopping list and avoid impulse buys you don’t need. You’ll learn how to dress strategically, save money, and score some amazing deals!

10.  Why aren’t we working together yet?
Every day, I speak with women – like you! – who are looking to develop their personal style and create a wardrobe that makes them feel more confident. And, every day, I ask them – what are you waiting for? They all have their reasons – lose the baby weight, get that promotion, have some extra time but the truth is – enhancing your personal style just might be the catalyst you need. Throughout my years of working with busy and strong women, I’ve found that once we create a wardrobe that gives them the confidence they were looking for – amazing things start to happen. They lose the baby weight, ask for and receive that promotion, and find ways to make extra time for themselves. So, let’s take the first step towards styling your best life together – you never know where it will lead!
