    SwapIt is a hidden gem in the Boston area. This incredible company swooped into my home and helped me create new outfits from existing (mostly) pieces in my closet. I feel as though I went shopping and have an entirely new wardrobe and I didn't spend a dime on clothing! Their stylist has an amazing eye and puts together interesting and stylish combinations. What I loved most was the personal attention to detail. I felt like a superstar. This is an incredible concept, reasonably priced and an invaluable service.

About this pro

It’s hard to get your wardrobe where you want it to be. You may end up frustrated or, even worse, with low self-esteem. Our service is specifically designed to help you avoid negativity now and in the future. We do this by rolling everything you need into one session that gets you started, keeps you going, and stops you from having to enter a store unless you want to. To get you started, all sessions include: *Professional SwapIt Stylist *In-home appointment on your schedule *SwapIt workbook to steer your style journey *Alteration pinning by stylist *SwapIt items (pieces that no longer work for you) removed from your home *New-to-you clothing To keep you going, the session follow-up includes: *A month of free style text support *A personalized shopping cheat sheet *A Lookbook *A SwapIt Swap Party for you and your friends Our unique approach helps you stay out of stores so that you won’t spend more money. During our sessions, stylists help clients pick pieces from their wardrobe that no longer work for them. Those pieces are then added to our inventory. Our stylists use that inventory to hand-select pieces that work for you and bring them right to your session. We offer this new-to-you clothing to replace or fill holes in your wardrobe. For each item you give to SwapIt, you get an item. No horrible store fitting rooms, and no second appointment needed. 3 hours and done. Helping people feel and look amazing. Our stylists enjoy listening to people talk about their thoughts and feelings on their wardrobe and seeing their lightbulb moments. We love to find new life in clothing already in a customer’s closet, bringing a renewed sense of the client’s confidence that they can choose great pieces. There is nothing better than seeing the growing smiles in the mirrors as we create more and more perfect looks. And we never forget that while each woman is rediscovering her style confidence, we are keeping clothing out of landfills, making us a counter movement to fast fashion.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      We do have a standard pricing system. Please visit our website and click on "session options" to learn more.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      We get them excited and ready for the big style session! Customers are given the tools to start organizing and prioritizing. We have new clients fill out a questionnaire on their size and style. We invite them to join us on Facebook or Instagram to see what we do and to get ideas for what they like. We send them questions to think about and depending on the session type, even a little homework. Then finally it’s session day! The stylist and client enjoy three purposeful hours of style filled excitement. After the session, clients receive their Lookbook, personalized shopping tip sheet, a month of style by text, and much more follow-up advice.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      Sara Baker is the Chief Executive SwapIt Stylist. Fashion has always been her passion. Since she was always the go-to friend for closet clean-outs and wardrobe advice, she turned it into a career. She wants everyone to feel that getting dressed is not a chore but rather an opportunity to explore and create. Sara graduated from Johnson & Wales University in 2014 with a Bachelor’s degree in Fashion Merchandising and Retail Marketing. She has held several retail positions including at Ann Taylor’s The Loft, strongly focusing on styling clients and visual merchandising as a full time visual and sales lead. She worked at Rue La La, helping their production team over the holidays. Now she is an assistant to a buyer at TJ Maxx Corporate. Her style is a personal mix of old meets new, girly, quirky, and sophisticated. She loves to push our clients out of their comfort zone and find a happy balance between what our customers are comfortable in and what shows off their personalities.
    Coverage Area for SwapIt is about 40+ miles of Medford, MA.
