Full cleaning 2700 sq ft home - 9 hours. Best brokered or web-led housecleaning experience EVER. Michael is a smart (IQ and especially EQ) and articulate man who quickly became immersed (with a ton of energy) in our tasks with a high level of sensitivity to our particular home stage. He is a totally capable cleaner, sure - used a totally effective combo of his and our own chemicals, tools and methods - got the house lastingly clean (it's been 4 days since now, time to dispassionately inspect) in all the conventional ways, missed only a few nooks or crannies - and he sincerely wanted to know what we catch that he misses (we got the sense he'll remember for next time). BUT - what else? Most cleaners (especially on first time gigs) reveal a lot by how they handle the dusting / knick knack challenge - Michael got bookshelves and cabinets and chests and mantles and all that clean, "picking up" every little item to dust beneath, AND then surprised us by tweaking placement - staging - of MANY of the little precious things we've accumulated over the years and (not making this up) we had to agree 100% of the time that he'd put things back better than where he found them. He knew this was a scary thing to offer - told us some people ask him to refrain and he quickly restores things as they were ... but folks, this guy (he has apparently worked as a professional interior "stager") is genuinely talented - and this one housecleaning left us with improvements we really liked! So in addition to a VERY well cleaned home - we got insight and a freshening of how we live with some of our favorite little stuff. Hell of a deal - his rates are solidly in the middle of the market range for good cleaners. He has a great, informal way of handling scheduling and was totally candid upfront and easy about the business, personal space and performance aspects of a house-cleaning relationship. We'll have him back in a month for sure.
Orene was personable, non-judgmental, and efficient. She helped me figure out my personal style by shopping in my own closet and by really listening to me. Somehow, she was able to make purging my closet fun, and she made it very easy for me to know what to buy and what not buy in the future. She is great, and I highly recommend her.
Eric is a fantastic stylist and really great to work with. He met all of my needs, including a home visit to personalize my experience, based on my current wardrobe. I felt at ease knowing that he wasn't trying be a salesperson (who would pressure you into certain items and brands). Instead, he gave me great advice that was not only useful for our appointments, but also for future shopping. His style and personality exemplifies a truly classic gentleman. If you are looking for guidance on men's styling, he is THE guy!
She is awesome! Very professional and does a wonderful job with my girls. I would hire her again.
Alesia possesses an innate ability to draw out your personal style--even if you don't believe you have one, she will hone in and uncover it--and she's a treasure trove of creative ideas and inspiration. She is an absolute pleasure to work with!
My shopping experience with Emilie was great! She was quick to assess my style, and I went home with many tips and suggestions on what would look cute on me. She helped me to choose different clothes and shoes to spice up what I already have at home. I really enjoyed the emails with additional clothing suggestions that she sent me after our shopping session as well. She is really fun and personable, and I can't wait to shop with her again!
Shelley is a terrific fashion consultant and stylist for men. She accompanied me clothes shopping one weekend. She has a terrific eye for fashion and an easy manner. She made the entire process fun and successful. Like most men, I loathe clothes shopping. Nevertheless, I finished our adventure with some great items and felt good about the whole experience. I will definitely hire her again.
Understands my style, body type and tast; and takes all the worry out of shopping. Affordably priced without sacrificing style and quality. Each shopping trip is personal and FUN! I'll never go shopping again. They even did all my school shopping for the kids! And #thatstreschic style!!
Tiana did my makeup for my entire wedding party. Not only was she on time and knowledgeable about the specific products that would work best for each of my bridesmaid's faces, she was very professional and caring. You could tell that she is very passionate about her work and it reflected when all my wedding guests asked who did everyone's makeup!! I have been recommending her to several people and she is definitely staying in my contacts for future services. Thank you again, Tiana!!
Working with Nicole was a dream. I would highly recommend her as a personal stylist and plan to work with her again soon. // A bit of backstory: I'm a 5'7" slender (size 2) woman in San Francisco in her late 20s. And shopping stresses me out - too many choices, not enough guidance, and I don't want to spend the time reading through Cosmopolitan, Elle etc to figure out what style works and what doesn't. Because of the above, I've worked with a personal stylist before when I lived in New York. I walked away with many nice and expensive 'classic' pieces from Bloomingdale's, none of which really fit my style and none of which I wear today. I look at that experience as a waste. I felt very nervous trying this again, but knew I needed to give it a go. My goal was to finally nail a capsule wardrobe so that I wouldn't have to think about each individual piece anymore -- without spending hours of my life on research -- so that I could just feel comfortable and confident in my look. // Working with Nicole Nicole is very down-to-earth and very approachable. In our first phone call, she asked about my goals, my body type, my favorite stores and more. She then put together a Pinterest board and sent it over to me. And here is the PERFECT example of why I'm SO glad I worked with a personal stylist in the first place... Because I looked at the Pinterest board and thought, "Oh, how dull... these pieces are so basic and too loose to accentuate my figure." But then my boyfriend (a visual designer) took a look and said, "Actually, the length of this top would accentuate your torso," and "The cropped length of these pants would make you look taller," and "The draped look makes you appear slimmer than a tight one" and so on and so forth, enlightening me to all the fundamental principles of style that Nicole had subtly understood and applied to fit my body, that I never would have picked out for myself. With that I was sold. // Once in the Mall I love the styles in Aritzia, but the last time I went to their two story store I spent three hours but walked out empty-handed and deeply frustrated. Nothing I had picked out actually worked on my body, and I felt at once helpless and somewhat pathetic at spending all that time, trying on all those pieces, and not being able to land at something that worked for my look. With Nicole, I tried Aritzia again. She had pulled out several pieces all waiting for me when I walked in -- and they all fit like a glove and were exactly what I was looking for: chic, comfortable, casual, yet polished and with a touch of class. I was so excited at finally having found the pieces that could be a base for my wardrobe that I insisted on going through the store again together, in case we had missed something that might work just as well; and found nothing. She had picked out exactly what worked for my body type, exactly what worked for my style, and I wish I had trusted her eye and thoroughness from the beginning! // In Sum If you're looking to nail your wardrobe once and for all, and not have to spend hours stressing about it, buying pieces that you ultimately return, and just love what you wear without thinking about it, then work with Nicole. Just do it. You won't regret it and you'll have hours of your life back and compliments (and confidence) galore. Thank you, Nicole, and look forward to working together again soon.
Very professional, awesome customer service, knowledgeable about products, very friendly personality!!!
The stress I was feeling about moving out of my Hollywood home was overwhelming. I needed someone that was going to hold my hand through the process. After shopping around for the best deal, this was it for me. Having people come into my home is very personal and I also needed confidentiality. Kay and her team were very friendly and accommodating to my needs. Everything ran smoothly and they earned my trust. All my personal belongings were in good hands and it was not stressful at all. When I moved into my new home, they were there to help me unpack and decorate. It was fun working with the same team throughout the entire process. My new home is great thanks to Kay!
I was thrilled to work with Regi-Ne', always punctual, responsive and professional. She worked on my new dress attire and everyone is always giving me rave reviews on my new look. She Rocks!!!
Before Jessica's much needed help I was a guy who thought jean cut offs were an ok thing for a grown man to wear. Now, after her suggestions, I am wearing comfortable, well-fitting, and professional clothes that make me look good and feel good.
Having a professional & passionate fashion designer, stylist & seamstress can save you a lot of time and effort when you are struggling to find that perfect outfit for that special occasion. Sometimes you just want to look different and stand out from a cookie cutter crowd by wearing that special outfit designed just for you! All the pants in the store are always too short or too long for you, familiar with that problem? Aleksandra is your solution for all these problems, and her services are only one click away! I used Aleksandra‘s services on numerous occasions. Every time she was with me every step of the way from designing my outfit, to shopping for the material, to adjusting it to fit perfectly. Finally, every time I walked out of her studio feeling special in her unique creations and you will as well…it’s guaranteed. I always receive numerous compliments whenever I wear her creations and my favorite one is “it fits you like a glove.” I usually just smile and think… well yes, of course, it is made just for me. :) Aleksandra regularly hems all of my pants and jeans as well. Aleksandra is not only completely awesome, but she is also very patient with her clients (as a picky one, that was very important to me). As picture is worth a thousand words, please look at the attached photos of me wearing Aleksandra’s creations in various occasions from costume party to the bachelorette party, from my favorite jeans dress to the long black dress for every occasion. Aleksandra always makes me look good and manages to hide all my figure imperfections. Thank you Aleksandra! PS. Aleksandra’s wedding dresses are breathtaking! I hope that one day I will have a chance to walk down the aisle in her creation.
