PERSONAL STYLING SERVICES
Closet Cleanse & Pull-together
For those looking for a wardrobe overhaul, this is our styling process from beginning to end.
We start with a consult to understand what you currently have in your closet, where the gaps are and what can be edited out. From there, personalized Vision Boards are developed with all of the things we are hoping to procure. It will be a clearly defined, aesthetic road-map to eliminate any impulse buys and set us up for a successful wardrobe over-haul.
Next, we go shopping to bring your vision to life. On the back-end, when shopping is complete, it’s equally as important that we pull everything together for you. Bringing in a whole new wardrobe is exciting, but also over-whelming. We wrap up by showing you how to incorporate your new pieces properly and ensure that when we leave, you feel that same confidence you felt when shopping together.show less

Do any of these sound familiar?
“I love shopping for clothes, I just wish I had the time!”
“Shopping overwhelms me. I don’t know where to start.”
“I like shopping, but I’m indecisive. I don’t know what looks good on me.”
If you answered yes to any of the above, our personal shopping experience is for you.
After visiting your closet and learning about your personal style goals, we start our shopping process. We designate 2-3 shops at 2 hours each to pull together all of the gaps we’ve identified in your wardrobe. We move quickly, but we work with your pace. By the end of our shops, you should have all the things you need in you closet to get up each day excited to pull together your wardrobe.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get started?
If our personal styling services sound like what you need, please fill out our Contact Us questionnaire to schedule an in-home consultation so that we can come and see your wardrobe in person, listen to your ideas and vision, discuss the styling process and provide you with solid ideas and a direction for your project. We do charge a non-refundable fee for our initial in-home consultation since we are blocking out a specific time on our calendar and traveling to your home to assess your wardrobe, make recommendations, give advice and put together a Concept Design & Fee Proposal for you.
What is included in the initial in-home consultation?
For our full-service styling projects, our first meeting requires an in-home visit where we will begin our closet cleanse. We may ask you to put your existing clothes on so that we understand your body & fit (this will allow us to move more efficiently when shopping for you). We will pull items we believe can be put aside to be donated/sold AFTER our shops are complete. We will run through our process & have you look at some visuals to ensure we are aligned aesthetically on how we want to elevate your wardrobe.
How long does the personal styling process usually take?
Normally the initial consult and closet cleanse take between 1-2 hrs depending on the size of your current wardrobe and how much there is to edit out. From there, we will plan shopping time together and have a final touch-base to help pull together all your new looks!
When should I approach your team to get started?
If you are looking to get started right away, put in your ideal start date in the Contact Us questionnaire and we will do our best to get someone there within a week or so. If you just want to lock it in your calendar for the future, that also works for us!
What geographical area do you cover?
We work all around HRM & are open to travel depending on the scope of the project. We also offer virtual styling services and can work together over Zoom to help you start editing your wardrobe.
Is there a minimum budget required?
Typically we advise that if you are doing any type of wardrobe over-haul you have a minimum budget of $2,500 set aside. Ideally, if you are looking to start fresh and need to purchase: shoes, accessories, coats and all wear for one season, you should have a minimum of $4,000 set aside.
What is your pricing?
We charge hourly based on our time together. If you require just a quick shop for a particular occasion or are a recurring client looking to get in front of the upcoming season we normally take 2 – 6 hrs at $130/hour. If you’re looking for a full wardrobe overhaul, that normally takes us between 6 – 10 hrs of shopping over the course of a few weeks.
What happens at the end of our shopping when I have all my new items, but don’t know how to put them together?
We always do a wrap-up meeting in your home after our shops are complete. We come in and show you which items belong together, how to mix-and-match your existing clothes with your newly purchased ones, and also take photos for you to have on file so that dressing each day is as easy as brushing your teeth. This is also the time where we decide if anything needs to be returned and if we’ve left any items out that are crucial to have in your wardrobe.
How do I know if you are the right fit for my wardrobe overhaul?
We hope that when we meet in-person and present you with a styling concept on your wardrobe you feel comfortable that we are in-line with your goals. We truly are experts in knowing the right fit for all body types and honing in on what make our clients feel and look their best. If at any time you feel that we are NOT the right fit after our consult, you are never locked in to a lump sum fee for our styling services. We are dedicated to providing top service in this space and feel that wardrobe styling should be fun for everyone!
