Kathrine made this a great and fun experience for me! Engaging a wardrobe stylist is a refreshing and confidence-building exercise every woman should do for herself or significant other purchase as a gift. I would do it again the same way and with Kathrine---GO ALL IN! We set up for what turned into two sessions with my closets fall/winter and spring/summer, and threw in review of shoes & accessories as well. Kathrine is efficient-straight forward-professional and that is just what I was looking for. We made piles: gotta go, rethink it, and of course keep! After we were done, she compiled her notes/recommendations/various websites for me to look over and think about. I put my closet back together to live with/experience for a couple weeks before we went SHOPPING! Shopping was really enjoyable, we had a plan and Kathrine was organized to maximize our time together. We started when the stores opened; she had many things pre pulled for me, along with a several we pulled together before I headed into the large dressing room. Last, we stopped in the shoe department, to find the perfect pointed black shoe! That was the only shoe I was looking for, that day anyway. Dont get stuck thinking, this will be an expensive endeavor we all have a budget we want to work with in and it is possible to do just that. Kathrine will guide and set up a plan you can work towards. As I said when I opened this review, I had a great experience with Kathrine, she took the stress and work out of something that for us all is extremely personal. I look forward to my next shopping trip this spring!Nov 7, 2015VerifiedKathrine Eldridge, Wardrobe Stylist's reply
Thank you so much Andrea for your wonderful review! I am also looking forward to our shopping trip in the Spring. :)
Kathrine was outstanding from the very beginning. Quote was personalized, prompt, clear and concise. Her services included a 30 min phone consultation and 5 hours (she noted that they could be used in anyway but suggested a 3-hour closet audit and 2-hours shopping.) This breakdown was perfect! The consultation was great, she asks great questions to get to know you as a person and what your goal is and in turn you get to know her as well. She is extremely friendly and made me feel very comfortable from the first phone call. During the closet she takes notes and teaches you along the way. What does and doesn't work and most importantly the WHY. This to me was invaluable as it gives you the tools you need so you can be confident in your shopping. During the shopping adventure (and it is an adventure) she is focused on a list of items that you may need to enhance your wardrobe. 2 hours doesn't seem like a lot, but when it is focused shopping, it IS enough time. Two people looking for specific items and it is about you. What do you like? What catches your eye? Before the shopping trip, she asks you about what your budget is and is excellent at keeping you within that budget. In between each of the sessions, Kathrine and I were sending emails back and forth too. She sends links to things she thinks I would like, I send links and asked a ton of questions. Your purchasing 5 hours of face to face time, but you are getting so much more. Even with the service being "complete" she is still around and available for assistance which is absolutely great! You have your own stylist at your fingertips which is something I thought celebrities had, but I have one now too and have found a friend in the process as well! Kathrine comes highly recommended!!!Apr 9, 2014Verified
I was lacking confidence in putting together stylish and coordinated looks. I tended to shop at the same stores and buy the same things over and over! As part of a "new year, and new me," i decided to hire Katherine to do a closet audit and shopping trip to help me get out of my fashion rut and boost my confidence. One of my best decisions ever! Katherine applied her professional and unbiased editing to cleanse my closet of pieces that were dated or just didn't work for my shape or style goals. She coached me on how to put together looks and identified key staple pieces that were missing from my wardrobe. My shopping experience met all of my expectations! Katherine found me great pieces, opened my eyes to new places to shop and made sure that everything we looked for was comfortable for my budget. Katherine is a very talented stylist and coach. She has great energy and made this experience fun for me. I can say that I feel much more confident with my style and ability to put together looks, AND i have a "no clutter closet" to boot! Thank you Katherine!Mar 16, 2014Verified
Kathrine truly helped me identify styles and brands well suited for my body type in an incredibly efficient shopping experience. She knows how to find quality pieces for good value while incorporating your personal taste, lifestyle, and budget in mind. She’s incredibly personable. Now I’m set with some amazing staples I can use year round. The pieces purchased make it really easy for me to ‘update’ my closet easily with seasonal supplemental pieces, especially now that she’s taught me what to look for. Hire her! It’s worth having an extra voice, who is sincere and honest, to have you look your best.Mar 3, 2018VerifiedKathrine Eldridge, Wardrobe Stylist's reply

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The process starts with a free 30-minute phone consult. After I have learned what the client's needs are, we move on to the closet audit. The closet audit usually lasts about 3 hours. During our session, I assess all aspects of the client's wardrobe through them trying on almost every thing they own. We makes piles of what to keep, what to toss, what to donate, what to tailor, etc. I give styling tips and take pics of looks that I have put together during the session. A couple of days later, I send a follow-up email detailing the styling advice I gave as well as offer links to items that would work well with what they already have. A personal shopping trip is soon after which usually is 2-3 hours.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I assist clients in editing their closets and help them find new ways to use the clothes they already have. I also identify what basic wardrobe items they are missing which I can then help them shop for if needed. Another service I offer is special event styling. I can scour the internet and local shops to find the perfect outfit for your next special event (wedding, gala, prom, etc.).
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Find someone that gets to know your lifestyle and listens to what your needs are. A stylist who listens to their clients intently will find options that work well for you and make you happy. Find a stylist that will push your comfort zone as well (at least a little bit). They probably have a lot of ideas that you haven't thought of that will help bring a fresh look to your wardrobe.
