In her own words
“At the age of nine, my dear mother allowed me to do her hair and make up for a night out with my dad. At eleven, I was taking her shopping and making her feel great. I spent my pre and post teen years flitting around make up counters, shoe departments and endless racks of clothes with my mother parked in the nearest chair. She did not enjoy shopping but she supported my passion for it with her endless hours in malls and by repeating often, ‘if only someone could pay you to shop.’ ⠀ ⠀
Well, now they do. ⠀ ⠀
I help women look and feel their very best; empowering their true nature and helping them show up to do their work in this world, whatever that is.
“Every morning I struggled with what to wear, beat myself up in the mirror and felt out of place and insecure all day at work. My closet was a mess and filled with clothing I never wore, some with the price tags still on! After working with you, my closet is tight and edited. It takes me minutes to get dressed in the morning. I look sharp and feel confident. I enjoy running meetings and speaking to groups. I don’t think about what I’m wearing because I know it’s right. I don’t waste time feeling bad. I do my job and I feel good.”-C.B., SVP Human Resources
What you wear matters. It guides your day and projects a brand to others whether you are aware of it or not. It’s a struggle for many and I find great satisfaction and joy in helping navigate this very common dilemma.
I help women look and feel their very best; empowering their true nature and helping them show up to do their work in this world, whatever that is. What are you here to do? Let’s work together to dress you perfectly. Let’s get started to help you show up!
We’ll dive into your closet, mix and match what you have, get rid of what doesn’t work and then shop to create your unique look.
After college, most women experiment with looks for work and tend to repeat a version of that look for sometimes decades. I find at around age 40, something wonderful happens. Women want to stand out and be heard like never before and they hire me.
Some clients abandon dresses altogether and simplify their lives by buying only pants. Even though their mom and friends always complimented them in dresses, they really felt like their true selves in pants. So we find the perfect pants and have them expertly altered. Those pants become the making of their signature look and, from there, we carefully build a wardrobe.
Taking the time to explore what matters to you will free you up, make you feel heard and help you enjoy they way you look.
No one is like you and, in our work together, we will identify what sets you apart and celebrate all that you are. Isn’t it the time in your life to stop just getting by? Honor yourself and invest in what is special about you.
I invite you to work with me and love the way you look. It’s time. “
