I've never been someone who enjoyed shopping. I usually get overwhelmed within the first 10 minutes which is what caused me to search and find Val. She was amazing, I was blown away at how successful we were together. She had already pulled options out previous to us meeting and all I had to do was show up and try them on. It completely removed the stress for me. I'm so thankful, Val you are amazing! Thank you!Nov 8, 2018VerifiedShop With Val's reply
Thank you for your kind words! I’m glad it was a positive experience for you. I enjoyed helping you rebuild your wardrobe and hope to work with you again soon!
I can be indecisive so I wanted Val to help me in that area. She understood my request, took the emotion out of it, and gave me yes/no answers. She would explain why she would say yes to things along with the why behind the non keepers. She would also give suggestions on how to replace items or make substitutions in my wardrobe. I also got a follow up email with a list of items my closet was missing. Overall, it has been a great experience, and I have learned a lot.Mar 15, 2018VerifiedShop With Val's reply
Thanks for the great review, Calyn. I'm glad you enjoyed your Closet Consultation and learned a lot. I hope to assist you with your shopping needs next time!
My "quicky" with Val was fantastic: her knowledge and professionalism paired with friendliness and non-judgmental attitude are a winning combination. Every minute of our two -hour session was spent effectively. I came out not only with 6 pieces of clothing that I love but also with lots of knowledge about what to look for in the future. Thanks, Val, you are wonderful!Feb 10, 2018VerifiedShop With Val's reply
Thank for the review, Tali. I enjoyed working with you and am so glad to hear you learned a lot. I hope you're enjoying your new pieces!
My first shopping experience with Val was Amazing! I can’t believe we accomplished so much in 4 hours. Val is professional, non judgmental, respectful, kind and there is no question that she is very good at what she does. I am looking forward to my next session and I feel confident that I will have a wardrobe that I will be proud very soon.Jan 28, 2018VerifiedShop With Val's reply
Thank you, Desiree! Your first appointment was off to an incredible start! I look forward to continuing to work with you to build a fabulous new wardrobe. Enjoy all your new pieces! See you soon!
Val is excellent at what she does. She works with her clients to fulfill their daily clothing needs, while maintaining a professional demeanor. She has a great sense of fashion, and even greater personality!Jan 11, 2018VerifiedShop With Val's reply

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When working with a new client we like to learn as much as we can about them so that we can customize a plan that is catered to their needs. We send new clients a detailed questionnaire so that we can gather information regarding style preferences, measurements, and budget. This information allows us to select stores and designers that we feel would be a good match.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Our CEO, Valerie, has been styling clients since 2010, but grew up in retail as her father owned his own clothing store. She has worked with hundreds of men and women, spanning all ages, sizes, budgets and styles, across 22 countries. Although Shop With Val’s portfolio is very diverse in that regard, our specialty is helping those in need of a seasonal update or wardrobe overhaul. As Shop With Val grows, Valerie trains her stylists to ensure they have the experience and know-how to accommodate all kinds of requests, including petite, plus, formal, tall, maternity, modest, bridal, small budgets, and special occasions. Her team is fully equipped to handle any request you bring their way.
