I honestly can not put into words how caring Delilah is about her clients, I will use my experience as an example to explain the quality of her service.
I am not one to always be the most fashionable, not to mention I do prefer to be more comfortable than care too much about how I look, mostly only for work, but on certain special occasions, I do really like to get "dolled up" for my husband and for myself because let's face it, the majority of the time, that doesn't always happen too often, especially as a working mother and wife!
I have always managed to stay in my "comfort zone" while still finding things that are appealing to me on said occasions. Most of the time though, I noticed, I usually ended up with similar outfits as before and thought, "Well, maybe this is just what works for me and my body type", and after a while, I really wanted a change. After asking around, I got word of Delilah, an experienced graduate of FIDM, and really, I never thought about actually hiring someone to be my "Stylist", it was just more of a luxury to me at that point, but boy was I in for a change!
I had my doubts of my own, more like concerns. "Will someone really be able to help me find something that works for me other than what I already feel comfortable in? Will she really be able to help a mama on a budget? (I am a working mom but that doesn't necessarily mean I can blow money on clothes when I feel like it!) Will she listen to my likes/needs and not stick me in something that really isn't "my style"?"
This was all so new to me, but like i said earlier, the service she provided was unlike any other.
For starters, I had recently lost a little weight when we met up the first time to shop. I was feeling better about myself but not to the point of stepping out of my "comfort zone" just yet. Delilah, after taking the time to carefully listen to my concerns and likes/dislikes, made a few suggestions on different pieces for me to try rather than my typical "Cover/hide everything in one piece" dress. I was very skeptical I'll admit, but I was the one who let her know my likes/dislikes and that I had an open mind to try new things but this was completely out of my comfort! I still tried on all the suggestions she had made, and let me tell you, I honestly could not believe how GREAT I looked, but more importantly how I felt!
I have stated that I am a working wife and mother, and "special occasions" only come up so often, I hardly get the chance to dress up and feel good, let alone feel GREAT, about myself. I used to always think that I knew what I wanted, but it wasn't until Delilah came that I realized I had a LOT more options than what I normally was dealing with! It had been so long since this mama on a budget felt like a million dollar mama! Not to mention, she really showed concern for my budget cap and, at the risk of sounding like a commercial, was still able to help me find new amazing styles at amazing prices.
The best bonus of all, was the multiple compliments I had received from, not only our friends and family members who took notice that there was definitely a change, but the man that matters most in my life, my husband. Mind you, I am very lucky and blessed to have a man who appreciates every single part of me, who tells me I am beautiful everyday, and after working with Delilah, (he had no idea I had hired her) told me that out of all the outfits I had ever worn to all the events we had gone to together, that my white criss-cross tube top and body con high waist red skirt was his absolute favorite and most memorable, even giving me that "look" again! He still talks about it the outfit sometimes! Yes, something I would never try in a million years! Something created and put together thoughtfully for me, by Delilah.
No words can describe how amazing I felt when I wore the outfit, how it hugged and accentuated in all the right places and the fact that others noticed, but most important my confidence was back and at a level I had never felt before, even in something totally out of my zone! And of course, my hubby and how he loved it so much.
I have gained and lost weight between all the times I have worked with Delilah and one thing is for sure, she always listens to your needs and your concerns and will ALWAYS find the best way to either "hide" your "worry areas" or accentuate those parts you love about yourself! If you are ever going to treat yourself mamas, or any woman who just wants to feel glamorous for special event, let Delilah be the one to make you feel like a million bucks, from head to toe, down to shoes and accessories, even on a budget!! I assure you, you wont be disappointed and she will search tirelessly for you, "shop til you drop mentality", and it will make YOU feel amazing and most definitely be noticed and memorable. Keep an open mind, try and explore new things and ideas for you, from her. Thanks Delilah for making this mama on a budget feel like a million dollar mama, for making my hubby happy as well, on more than one occasion!
