Sandra’s passion and enthusiasm for fashion is contagious! Five years ago, my husband surprised me and hired Sandra to help me get my ‘fashion act’ together. Over the years, my closet had become a hot mess, as it was filled with clothes that I loved. But sadly, they just hung in my closet with tags. Sandra to the rescue! Within two hours, my closet had been made over! She is GENIUS!! She showed me how to mix the pieces I already owned in ways I would have never dreamt of. Sandra is most definitely the queen of reinventing what you already own! Next, came the trip to the mall. In my opinion, I would call Sandra the ‘stylist whisperer’. She was so attuned to my needs, budget and how best to compliment my body style. I absolutely loved her ability to mix high and low end. From Neiman Marcus to Forever 21, Nordstroms to Target or high end boutiques to DSW! This girl knows how to make you look like a million bucks and not break the bank. Whether you are in need of an entire closet overhaul, a prom dress for your daughter (oh, she did that for us too!) or a simple, versatile black dress, Sandra is the real deal!

This educated and experienced professional gets the job done efficiently and, oh so pleasantly. Cost-effective and resourceful, don’t let the $100.00 an hour scare you. Whether you’re a teen going back to school or me, a young 60 year-old who recently retired, Ms. Rosson nails your look. I considered an image consultant after finishing two career fields, military and law-enforcement, where I wore a uniform. I didn’t need to think about clothing and, so, never placed much time or energy into shopping. I watched TLC’s What Not to Wear and wished someone would submit me; I needed a transformation. Jennifer, by the way, worked with Stacy London and produces that caliber of client results. Jennifer came to my home after I completed a couple of short questionnaires. We, literally, went through my closet; I quickly discarded the cast-offs. I felt better already! Ms. Rosson maintains a contract with the Fashion Valley mall merchants who pay her fees for the first two hours of shopping. What a win-win-win set up! Between Banana Republic and Ann Taylor Loft (my go-to stores), we completed this evolution in two hours. I now own a dynamite fall wardrobe for an upcoming cruise of the Northeastern seaboard. However, all mix and match pieces and layers will serve me beautifully back here in San Diego. I have good taste, but constructing a real wardrobe including accessories needs vision and effort. Let this fashion stylist get you on the right track. I wished I had done this sooner.

I worked with Carolyn to decorate my new home. I had some pieces of furniture and artwork I wanted to incorporate from my last home, but needed to buy most items. She EXCEEDED my expectations with her creativity, patience and enthusiasm. I think what I appreciated the most was her willingness and ability to explain WHY she liked an idea or design concept and what makes a concept work or not work. I had some very definite ideas about what I wanted, but not how to make it all happen; and then there were times when I didn’t know what I wanted and she never lost patience with me when we were trying to figure it out. If I didn’t like one of her ideas, she never took it personally. She would just come up with another one! My tastes and ideas tend to be out of the box. I needed to be reigned in on some of my ideas and she took the most important ones to me and went running with them. She was very budget conscious, an expert shopper online and in stores, and creative enough to design custom furniture and repurpose other pieces when we couldn’t find what we needed. She was a calming presence through the ups and downs of the process. She got me to think beyond my ideas and taught me a great deal. The synergy between us created something spectacular! We still have some finishing touches to buy which is why I’m not attaching some photos now. I hope to be able to come back and do so later. I received a message this morning telling me this was my last chance to write her review and didn’t want to let the opportunity go by without sharing how wonderful I think she. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER!

Anna is a style genius! Not only does she have an amazing eye for fashion and impeccable taste, but she knows how to listen! She's created outfits for me based on who I am and what I want to express rather than just putting me into what's trendy. With the ease and grace of a seasoned professional, Anna can coax the signature style out of even the most reluctant fashionista. After spending an afternoon in your closet, you'll want Anna to be your new best friend. Whether you're fashion forward or fashion challenged, Anna will take your look to the next level!

When we needed a makeup artist for our Slabratory clothing company model shoot, we reached out to Michelle Shoser and we couldn't have been happier. From the initial idea and first emails she was on it! She helped coordinate the day with Sabina Kelley and was very punctual. As we discussed ideas for the shoot Michelle helped consult the right look and makeup Sabina would need and the results were outstanding. With her background and knowledge in makeup she provided the perfect look for Sabina, and you could tell that she's perfect for any event, wedding or model shoot you would need!!

Emma is extremely professional and is a true fashion expert! She helped me pair existing items in my closet that I would never think of myself and encouraged me to wear certain things that will accentuate my body type. She's super fun to work with and has a million ideas to share. Our shopping trips have been very successful. I would recommend Emma in a heart beat! Hopefully she will be my stylist for life!

WOW. Jaquelyn is a total pro. Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect as this was my first time hiring a wardrobe stylist. We started with a closet audit. She made me a list of items to help complete my wardrobe. Since we had so much FUN, I didn’t want to go shopping without her, so I booked her again for a personal shopping session. The best part was when we married the old and the new. The outfit creation session was so much fun. I basically did a fashion show for my parents, kids, and hubby when we got home from shopping. My family, my coworkers, my friends, pretty much everyone has been compliment my wardrobe since working with her. Her follow up was AMAZING. I now just pull up my style book on my iPhone whenever I can’t find the right outfit. I couldn’t give Jaquelyn a higher recommendation!

Mike and Mary are amazing! Never are you made to feel that you have no worth and that the things in life you are dealing with are wrong. Mary has a sweet confident way about her that truly makes you want her to be your friend for life. She keeps things real and makes you look at things from a different perspective all the while making you realize you have worth and that once you love yourself and accept you for you things will make sense. Did I mention--she has AMAZING style and an eye for some of the most beautiful interior designs I have ever seen. Mike is just WOW...he speaks wisdom and truth in a way that makes you seriously stop and think. Never judging and always looking for the answers in a way that you will understand. It's so great to see them together--they respect each other and love each other. It's refreshing and yet never do you feel like they don't go through some of the same things you are dealing with. The Shackelford's are the real deal.

    Allie did an amazing job helping me organize my closet/home and design/stage/redecorate my home. It feels like a completely new space and has made such an impact on overall simplifying my life now. She even helped me resell my unwanted clothes which ended up earning me more money than when I started! Her services pay for themselves many times over in terms of getting back the value of things you want to let go of/sell and by allowing me to focus on what really matters in my closet/home/life- so keeping my key favorite pieces in my wardrobe and house has led me to live a more intentional, minimal, and lower-stress/lower-cluttered life. She has a great eye for this type of design, both with all the things I wouldn't have thought of myself, as well as knowing the edge of design/fashion to keep my wardrobe fresh and yet with timeless classic pieces mixed in. She shows she's been doing this for a while and is way more the expert than me! She also checks in after we worked together and helped make long-term livable solutions to keep my home/closet this way. I highly recommend her to help with you home and living spaces. So glad I did this!

    Debra is very professional and fun to work with. She has an amazing eye for knowing what suits people and has the skill to dress people to suit all budgets. Debra always looks stylish and well put together herself and you can see that this is a real passion of hers. I've seen women's confidence boost simply by working with Debra, whether it was finding an outfit for a specific event or by finding the perfect accessory to what they already had. She was a pleasure to work with and I always keep in mind what she once told me - every day is a fashion show!

    With Michael’s help my style has been taken to the next level. He has an amazing taste for fashion and really just knows what will look good on you. He is always a pleasure to work with and one of the best parts is how much time he saves me. I am a super busy entrepreneur, so my time is extremely valuable to me. One of the perks of working with him is that he picks everything out for you BEFORE you get there. When I got the store, the fitting room was already laid out with multiple choices all picked based on the conversation that we had a few days prior. Talk about customer service! Recently, he has been styling me for events that I attend and the compliments have been rolling in. I highly recommend him! It does not matter if you are looking for a single outfit for a special occasion, a revamp of your closet or for a completely new wardrobe. What ever it is, Michael is the best choice to help you with what you need!

    I love working with Nia!! I hired her for a wardrobe refresh for myself and I felt light as a feather afterwards. I knew it needed to be done but I didn’t realize how much it would help to have her do it with me. We’ve since worked together several times, as I’ve made some custom designs for a few of her clients! She works hard to make sure her clients are happy with their experience.

    I would like to start off by saying I had a amazing time working with Jerae. She made me feel comfortable, and the process of me finding a new style was simple. She was very professional and the time we spent together actually felt like time spent with a friend. I have recommended her to all my friends trying to find a new look or trying to find something amazing to wear to an event. I hope you give her a shot for all your fashion staying needs. You won't be disappointed.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How do I find a personal stylist?

    To find a fashion consultant, start by browsing portfolios online. Styling is a visual art, so finding a fashion consultant who fits the style you desire is key. Great personal stylists aren’t confined to one style, but if you’re seeking a hipper, fashion-forward vibe, you’d do well to find someone with a modern portfolio, while a fashion consultant with a consistently refined style could be a better fit if you’d prefer a more conservative look. Reading reviews is also helpful for learning more about the fashion consultant. Research their training, background and years of experience. After reviewing websites and Instagram accounts, meet with the stylist in person to learn how well they fit your personality; some fashion consultants offer a free phone consultation prior to hiring. Before hiring, make sure you clearly understand their terms of service and payment.

    What do image consultants do?

    Image consultants help people look and feel their best by coaching them on their clothing and beauty choices. An image consultant can be hired for a one-time occasion, such as an awards ceremony, big birthday party or photo shoot. The consultant will recommend clothing, hair and makeup to suit the occasion either using either what the client owns or taking a targeted shopping trip. For a complete fashion consultation, the image consultant will assess your wardrobe, your lifestyle, and what you hope to present to the world, and will then determine the best colors, styles and cuts for you. You can get help streamlining your professional appearance, adjusting your style after a change in body size, solidifying a new look, or finding clothing to fit one area of your life like work or weekends. Image consultants also provide closet edits, going through your clothing and paring out what isn’t right for the look you’re trying to achieve. Personal shopping is another service that image consultants provide. After an image assessment, they can either shop with you or shop on your behalf to find you key pieces you need.

    What is a fashion consultant?

    A fashion consultant is a paid professional who will advise you on what to wear and how to wear it to fit your desired lifestyle or career goals. A fashion consultant can provide many services including personal shopping, closet audits, beauty consultations, style consultations and ongoing seasonal services. A fashion consultant often has a design or fashion background (although this is not required) and an innate sense of style. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut with the colors, cuts and designs we think suit us. A fashion consultant comes in with fresh eyes and provides constructive feedback to guide your style choices.

    During your initial meeting, your fashion consultant will take stock of your current clothing selection and learn what you hope to achieve. They’ll identify core wardrobe pieces you need, as well as advise you how to wear items together. Many consultants create style lookbooks for their clients explaining things like exactly which shoes to wear with what pants and how to accessorize each look. Fashion consultants are a great option for people who are updating their style due to age, career changes or body changes, or who are just ready for a new look and feel. Most fashion consultants charge by the hour, with some offering packages and others working from a retainer.

    What is a personal shopper?

    Personal shoppers take the pain out of having good fashion. Personal shoppers are paid professionals who work with women, men or children who need style assistance. If you are stuck in a fashion rut, are unsure how to dress in a way that flatters your body, need to revamp your image, or want a more professional career look, personal shoppers can help. Personal shoppers identify the look their client wants to achieve and purchase the necessary clothing and accessories to achieve it. The process often begins with an initial consultation with the client to understand their style goals. This consultation may include a closet “audit,” an assessment of the client’s current wardrobe to see what items can be eliminated and what must be purchased to achieve the desired style.

    The client and the personal shopper can shop together, selecting items as a team. The personal shopper may also shop on behalf of the client, then bring all items to the client for a final decision. A third option is pre-shopping, where the personal shopper reaches the store(s) ahead of the client and sets aside clothing for the client to try on, expediting the whole process — a win for anyone who hates spending time in the mall. Personal shoppers can also be hired for one-time events such as weddings, vacations or birthdays. You can also enlist a personal shopper to do your gift shopping for you. Overall, a personal shopper is an investment in making good style choices.

    What does an image consultant do?

    Image consultants help people look and feel their best by coaching them on their clothing and beauty choices. Image consultants help clients in a number of ways. An image consultant can be hired for a one-time occasion such as an awards ceremony, big birthday party or photo shoot. The consultant will recommend clothing, hair and makeup to suit the occasion, using what the client already owns or making a targeted shopping trip. For a complete fashion consultation, the image consultant will assess your wardrobe, lifestyle and image you hope to present to the world, and determine the best colors, styles and cuts for you. You can get help streamlining your professional appearance, adjusting your style after a change in body size, solidifying a new look, or finding clothing to fit a specific area of your life like work or weekends. Image consultants also provide closet edits, going through your clothing and paring out what isn’t right for the look you’re trying to achieve.
