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.Nov 30, 2017

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.
