I cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience with Teresa Foss-Del Ross! As the CEO of a nonprofit in Washington, DC, I needed to buy five or six polished outfits to wear during my organization's week-long annual conference. It was not an easy task: I am 51, 5'2", and curvy, and I needed the outfits within two weeks. Teresa was immediately friendly and helpful, and set up a late-afternoon meeting at my house.
During the at-home consultation, Teresa asked me about my needs and my style, then took a look through my closet and asked me to try on three or four of my favorite outfits. I never let ANYONE into my closet -- but she was so positive and non-judgmental, that I felt immediately comfortable. She saw exactly why I liked the outfits I did, and seemed to have a good sense my favorite colors and lines.
Teresa set up a special Pinterest page for me, and sent over a few ideas. They were very close to what I had in mind, and I made a few suggestions about colors, cut, etc.
We next met in a large, private fitting room at Nordstrom, where she thoughtfully brought water. A salesperson from Nordstrom helped with keeping the outfits flowing. I had only two hours, so we worked briskly. Immediately, I loved the twenty or so dresses that Teresa had chosen, and I chose two of them. We then worked our way through many more jackets, skirts, and blouses, and then finally Teresa chose the perfect accessories (belts, a pair of neutral shoes, a scarf, and a show-stopping necklace that tied many of the pieces together). I came away with five dresses, a skirt, a blouse, two sweaters, a tee shirt and a jacket, with accessories -- only two of which even needed alteration! All the clothes were clearly "me," but in silhouettes I might never have tried before (e.g. flared skirt with short sweater). I got rave reviews on everything at the conference, and have been happily wearing everything since then.
Throughout, Teresa was cheerful, honest, helpful, and she clearly has a wonderful eye for fashion at every level (her own style is beautiful). Afterward, she helped me with alteration suggestions, and helped me order a blouse that had not been available on our day at Nordstrom.
I feel that every penny of Teresa's fee was well spent -- and that I was happy to spend more on the clothes than I normally would, since they are classic and I will wear them (rather than having them hang uselessly in my closet). I cannot recommend Teresa more highly, and am tremendously grateful!!
