I had a great experience with Candace! This is the first time I've tried a personal shopper and I can see why she came so highly recommended. She's incredibly personable and detail-oriented. She's direct, but polite. The most valuable thing she did for me was talking me through each decision as we audited my closet so I could learn why certain things didn't work for me and how to pick out future items that I wouldn't regret later. On our shopping day, she went early to pre-shop for me so we didn't waste any time together. She picked out items that I probably never would have considered, and I was surprised to find that I loved them after trying them on. She then came back for a third appointment, in which she took photos of my clothes and then talked through any questions I had about integrating the new clothes with the old. Her online "Lookbook" was where she arranged outfits and selected recommendations for shoes, which we didn't get a chance to look at in our shopping trip (I just clicked on the shoes I liked and it redirected me to the retailer website where I could purchase!). This was the second most valuable thing she did for me and because of that, I probably would have rather taken the photos myself from the third appt. and used her time for arranging more outfits online. After I worked with the new outfits and shopped a bit more on my own (implementing her lessons), I reached out again with a few questions and asked for her feedback on what I had done. She immediately responded and not only answered my questions, but added additional outfits to my online Lookbook that integrated the new pieces I had uploaded! All in all, Candace helped me reach my goal of creating a wardrobe that's classy and dynamic (professional and casual), while helping me feel more confident about choosing the right clothes for me. She was a pleasure to work with and I hope to work with her again in the future!

My husband hired Sophie Mae as a Christmas present for me. She came and we went through my closet. That was a very cleansing experience for me. She educates you on why things aren't working for you and why others do. We went shopping yesterday and I was not a fan of shopping in stores until yesterday. I cannot wait to go shopping with her again. I was able to purchase a lot of clothes and still remained under budget. She comes with a plan, and while going through my closet, learned what styles I was looking for. She is simple A-MAZING! Thank you, Sophie Mae. I'll be in touch.

Sandra is amazing! She completely organized my entire closet! It is soo easy to find things now and we got rid of clothes I had not been wearing and completely organized what I do wear! She is an awesome personal stylist / shopper who knows exactly what things will work on me. From clothes to accessories! She's totally changed my life when it comes to packing for trips or finding a dress for an occasion. She makes all of it so easy now! There's nothing she can't do!

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!

I give Anna rave reviews! She is both creative and professional. I hired her to help me edit my wardrobe, upgrade my daily style, and focus my future clothing purchases. She has been a fabulous guide in each area. She took time to get to know my needs and assess how I might achieve my goals with the clothes I already had in my closet. She also help me get rid of clothes that did not fit or that I no longer wanted to wear. Most important, she saved me from continuing to buy styles that did not make the most of me. She's great to shop with, too! She helped me try new colors and styles that I thought were not for me. To my surprise, these pieces elevated my style in ways I never imagined. I highly recommend Anna.

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!!

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!

Compared to traditional in-person styling service, it is more affordable and efficient. Everything is done online and Isabella is really responsive for my needs. Another good point is that the clothing items are not limited to certain brands, unlike some big-scale styling services do, so the recommendations are more unbiased. I like the personalized report about my advice for colors, body shapes, and some detailed matching advice for the listed items. I decided to purchase and keep many things on the list. Isabella is really good to talk with. She is responsive and very considerate of my needs. Since my outfit is for holiday purposes, she expedited her speed to cater the timing. I am happy to read her list and gives me practical advice and inspirations on my personal styles.

Adele did a 2-hour closet audit with me, after we went through a brief exercise to determine my style type. She was a big help to me, identifying certain looks that didn't do me any favors and encouraging me to add color to my mostly-neutral palette. We determined a few pieces I need to add (and several to get rid of) and I look forward to shopping for those pieces at some point. She even brought clothing catalogs with certain outfits marked that she though I might like, based on our preliminary phone call (which I think is a great idea). I highly recommend her!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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 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.

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.
