Sahra is amazing. I really enjoyed my afternoon with her clearing out my closet and coming up with new outfit ideas. I loved that she used all of my current clothes as a starting point and I didn't feel like I HAD to run out immediately and buy a bunch of new clothes to replace everything. She was so patient with me and we went through every item in my closet. If something wasn't in the best shape, didn't fit my life, or didn't fit well, it was a goner. She then spent a bunch of time putting together personalized selections of possible additions to my closet with lots of ideas on brands and specific items I could add that would work with that I already have. I feel SO much better anytime i go in my closet now and i feel much more equipped to put together outfits every day. This was soooo worth every penny. Thanks, Sahra!Dec 10, 2018Verified

I hired Shop The City (Sahra) to seriously take on my closet. I was ready to step up my professional image, and I wanted to start by having someone (with a great education and taste) give it the once over. I was extremely happy with her thoughtful and tactful approach to get me to liberate things that I'd had too long and consider things that would update my look. After our session, she send me my styling picks, which gave a vision and action items to keep the progress going. I'll happily hire Sahra again when I'm ready for my next step.Aug 21, 2018
Sahra did a totally awesome job organizing my closet, working with me to pick out some rad new outfits, and being super responsive the entire time. Even when I had some hesitancy on certain articles of clothing (buying or getting rid of), she was supportive and I always felt that she was on my side. In the end, every decision she helped me make was the right one. Would recommend her 100%.Mar 8, 2018
I’ve know Sahra (the owner) for years. She has a great eye for style and truly listens to personal style preferences and can find great items on a budget!Mar 8, 2018

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?While Thumbtack shows an hourly rate, my pricing is actually based on a flat fee; I anticipate about 6 hours of work for wardrobe audits and personal styling where I'm with you, and an additional 4-6 hours to complete your end of experience lookbook. Remote Styling take about 8-10 hours of work. When you break down my pricing, I know that it will be the best bang for your buck!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Typically, we begin with a phone call or a chat discussing your personal life, work, what you like to do for fun, and budget. From there, I'll take all of your input to prepare for your experience, whether that be a wardrobe audit, personal shopping day, or remote styling. Before meeting in person, I try to put together a lookbook of inspirations to make sure we are on the same page for what you are looking for. After each experience, you receive a lookbook of the inspirations that you liked, alongside links to new items that would work well in your wardrobe and images of the best looks we compiled together during our meeting.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a degree in Fashion Merchandising from LIM College in New York City. I have over 15 years of retail, buying, and trend forecasting experience to use to help YOU feel your best in your clothes.
