Megan has a gift for shopping, style and fashion. As a busy working professional, shopping is one of those things I seem to keep kicking down the road and get easily frustrated with. She did an initial phone call and really listened to my pain-points. From there she outlined a shopping strategy and helped me find unique clothes at shops I would not normally go into. On top of all that-she is a tailor...bonus! Guys: she can even pick out awesome outfits for you online and you will never have to set foot in a store. Do yourself and your wardrobe a favor and hire Megan!
For some time I have been looking for a proper wardrobe consultant. I enjoy good clothing but find the process of finding it very tiring and usually end up frustrated as nothing seems to fit, go together, etc. Now enter Eric. Eric has been a breath of fresh air to my shopping experience. Eric epitomizes what a Wardrobe Consultant should be: punctual, efficient, thoughtful, and creative. At our initial meeting we discussed we discussed fit, clothing manufacturers and what our future collaboration will look like. Eric took notes on my measurements but I swear he has a photographic memory as he is so quick to remember them every time. After the first meeting, he drafted up a plan and we did a shopping trip. The trip was an eye opening experience. Eric was able to pick out all the right pieces like it was magic. We went to shops that I never considered or even heard of. He truly has a gift. The trip went so well that I have done subsequent trips with him! Furthermore, Eric is a tailor and knows the ins and outs of the industry. Gentlemen, if you are considering updating your wardrobe, look no further. Do yourself a favor and hire Eric. He can really work within any budget and I have complete confidence in his ability. It has been a pleasure to work with him and I look forward to our next meeting!
Betina is so much fun to work with! She is creative and efficient. I have used her as my stylist for closet edits and personal shopping experiences. She helps me feel more confident in wearing my own clothes and helps me think a little more outside the box when shopping. I highly recommend Best Foot Forward!
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!!
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.
I had a wardrobe consultation session with Carrie as well as a shopping trip. Both times with Carrie was amazing. She was very thorough and direct helping me organize my closet. She immediately understood my taste and put different looks together. Then we went on a shopping trip. She pulled more than 70 pieces for me and we picked the best ones together. I loved that we focused on finding timeless, signature pieces and I get a lot of compliments on those. I am a picky person when it comes down to fashion, there are certain brands I like and Carrie was an expert in them. After our trip, we continue to collaborate on my lookbook online. It is an excellent experience. I highly recommend Carrie.
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.
The PradaG helped me revamp my wardrobe for work. We went shopping together and she was very attentive in learning about my personal style, my wants and dislikes while also pushing me beyond my comfort zone. It was a fun experience to work with a stylist and I definitely recommend her services if you need help refreshing your look too.
With out Delilah's help I would have been completely lost. Lets just say I am definitely no fashion guru. So, when it came to my high school graduation I had no clue what to wear. I contacted Delilah, and she was able to help me the next day! We went shopping, and she helped me find something that looks good, but that I would also feel comfortable in. Considering I am not the type to wear dresses, nor dress up, it took trying on plenty of outfits and styles until I was finally comfortable in this one. That being said, Delilah was very patient and professional. Thanks to Delilah I had a stress-free shopping experience, and I am really happy with the outcome!
I am an advocate and Pro for Thumbtack and hired Kayla for my boyfriend to prepare his apartment before his family came to town. The tasks were vague to start, but she acted as our personal assistant for 3 days since we have extremely busy schedules. She organized his place, put items in storage, set up the guest bedroom, grocery shopped, and minitored the cleaner. She was able to check in 2 different flights for our visitors and manage their airport Uber pick ups remotely, as well as managing some personal emails. She was able to provide an array of dinner reservation options and book them. The special touches were noticed, such as; putting stemmed glasses for the white wine in the freezer, checking in on our hired cleaner, organizing closet space in the guest bedroom and setting up their Netflix. Kayla was trustworthy, asked the right questions, and was very efficient! It is definitely worth hiring a pro to take the stress off your plate when having visitors, will hire her again in a month before more company.
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!
My experience with Yarilis was nothing short of magical. Before working with her, my fashion sense was that of a 13 year old boy - not very impressive, professional, or inspired. She empowered me to release the wardrobe items that were not serving me in order to create the literal and emotional space for a look that really expresses my authenticity. After purging my uninspired closet, she took the pieces that had merit and transformed them into cohesive, professional, confidence-boosting looks. We went shopping for a few additions that took my look from pre-adolescent boy, to empowered, stylish adult. I couldn't be happier with the transformation that occurred. Thank you, Yarilis!
I recently spent a delightful morning shopping with Brenda. Our goal was to buy one outfit, to take a few risks and update my look. I had, for some time, been so distracted by changes in my life that I stopped paying attention. She gently reminded me that putting your make up on at stoplights is not a beauty routine, and that feeling good in what you are wearing can change your whole day. Her beautiful sense of humor, enthusiasm and sensitivity made the day both a success, and an inspiration! (an additional note: My new outfit was a hit at work!)
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.
I was referred to Design Friend by a girlfriend of mine. I've been wearing the same clothes for almost 15 years. Embarrassing, I know. So I was in desperate need of a wardrobe update, but didn't want to feel pressured to buy expensive clothes by the personal shoppers at the department stores. I was so happy with the looks Roberto provided me. He really listened to me, was very knowledgable about what kinds of clothes fit my body type, and gave me great tips to find online deals and pointed me to stores that fit my personal style. He was incredibly professional, did not pressure me to buy anything, and was more affordable then I thought. I would definetly give him 5 stars and look forward to using him for a refresher now and then. Miranda K.
Styles and quality of customized Bras from Violet's Valentine are great. I was shopping for a great gifts for my Partner and Linda was so helpful.
Cristina was very organized and picked out some options for me before I even got there. I hate shopping but she made the experience easy and enjoyable! Well worth her services!
Reese helped me out with both my teenage girls. Reese met with the girls in our home. Reese came fully prepared with some ideas of what the girls would like. After our meeting the girls were sold on the idea of someone helping them out with their look. We set a date to meet in the city to SHOP!!! Needless to say they had a blast shopping and Reese was right there to help both of them. Fast forward a week the girls are taking Reese' advise to heart and are putting in into action with how they now are presenting themselves. I am very happy we found Reese and would highly recommend her services.
I really needed a clothing update and Nicole did a fabulous job. She put together great outfits for work and play that I love and that fit. Everything was stylish and fashionable and received rave reviews from friends and coworkers. Even my husband thought every outfit was a hit. It was so easy working with her and everything she selected was perfect for me. She made my shopping experience fun and easy. I feel like I even learned about fashion and styling by how she pulled everything together from clothes to shoes to accessories. I cant wait to start shopping with her again for next season.
A++ ~ Would totally hire again! Jessie is an amazing closet cleanser / fashion advisor! After a year of personal shopping she did for me through an online service I asked if I could get help with a closet cleanse / consult. She was a blast to hang with and go through my closet with, we were laughing the whole time while choosing tons of old clothes to get rid of that didn't really fit my life anymore and I came away with a much better sense of the stuff I was missing the whole time.
