Having worked in the corporate world for nearly twenty years, I know what it’s like to want to dress for the job you want. With the ever-changing office dress codes, you want to look your best so you can perform at your highest potential, even in an office casual setting.
Now, as an entrepreneur and a busy mom of two active boys, my style has to meet my lifestyle needs. Whether we are headed to hockey practice, a school meeting, or a client meeting, I need a wardrobe that has me feeling confident and my best, no matter what the day brings along.
As a fellow on-the-go woman, we have one thing in common. We tend to put ourselves last, prioritizing our family and work first. Before we know it, we are wearing the same uniform to work and at home, devoting very little time to self-care and our image. You deserve to take a time-out to focus on YOU, your style, dressing for your shape and for your lifestyle. When your appearance matches your inner beauty, you can do anything! So, take the next step…You can do this! I am here to help! Together, we can transform your wardrobe and image to live your best life in style.
Why did I get into personal styling?
I’ve had a passion for fashion for as long as I can remember, always having a pulse on trends and knowing what works for my own personal style. I would help friends find an outfit for an event or the perfect pair of shoes to wear for work. A little over a year ago, I started a side business as a personal stylist while working full time in the corporate world. I knew one day, my desire to run my own business coupled with desperately feeling the need to be a less-crazed mom of two busy boys, would inspire me to make the switch from corporate girl to entrepreneur. As my styling business began to grow, I found myself wanting to spend more time working with clients, inspiring them to style with confidence. In particular, I love helping clients transform their style and wardrobe to best fit their body shape and lifestyle needs. Truth be told, I was loving every minute of it and knew change was on the horizon sooner than I expected. With the incredible support of my husband and kids, cheering me on from the sidelines, I put in my two-week notice in April and never looked back!
Where do I start when first working with a client?
I strongly believe the magic starts in the closet. Many of us have decades of clothing in our closets in all shapes and sizes. We’ve gone through significant life events and our clothing reflects what we’ve gone through and where we are in our life from starting our careers, marriage, having children, weight loss, divorce, and more. When we start with your closet, we will weed out the clothes that don’t fit your current lifestyle while creating a wardrobe that will evolve into where you want to be. Then, my personal shopping packages are focused on building out your wardrobe based on your lifestyle needs such as Wear to Work, Casual Wear, Night Out. When we’re finished, you will never have to worry about what to wear because you will have a Look Book customized with all of your new outfit combinations, a mood board illustrating your style, and tips on how to dress for your shape.
How would I describe my personal style?
My style has definitely evolved over the years and more so in the last three months, when I quickly realized I had a closet full of office wear and very little casual wear. Currently, my overall style vibe is west coast casual meets coastal living. I love all shades of blue, so you’ll find me wearing something blue every day. Bottom line, I like to be comfortable, casual, and look pulled together 95% of the time.
What is the best style advice I’ve ever received?
Be a stiletto in a room full of flats.
