Teresa is AMAZING! For years I always wanted to find someone who could tell me what kind of haircut would look best on me, help me pick out the best clothes for my body type, and even help me pick out a new set of frames for my glasses! But as a working mom of three, I admit that it’s been hard to find some of that ‘me’ time to do all these things….and, quite frankly, seemed like an exhausting task – Where would I even know where to begin? It’s funny how things work out, but my sister (knowing I needed a little oomph in the style department!) told me about Teresa so I decided to set up a consultation appointment and see where things went from there. When I first met her, we immediately clicked. She was just so friendly, energetic, and seemed genuinely interested in finding out how she could help me. I think I was originally skeptical of ‘public image consultants’ because I wasn’t sure if they’d try to make me into something I’m not. But Teresa put all my worries at ease by making sure I felt confident and comfortable with my new look – everything from clothes, shoes, makeup, hair, and glasses. It gave me a new outlook on life!...or should I say, “pep in my step!” – I’m really grateful that I took the time to contact Teresa and invest in ME.

Roxanne took great care of me! I have a mostly new wardrobe full of pieces that I love and that fit perfectly. And I don't need to buy anything else; my wardrobe is complete. Cleaning out my closet was pretty painless because we focused on keeping the pieces that were already, or could be tailored to be, flattering. I kept a few other items that were really mementos rather than clothes that I would wear, but everything else went to a nonprofit that helps homeless women prepare to join the workforce. All I really had to do was be open to taking a journey with Roxanne, rather than clinging to my original ideas. I wanted a work wardrobe that projects a certain image, and that is exactly what I got. What changed is my idea of how to get there. By the halfway mark, I trusted her enough to try anything she selected. At least 90% of the items fit me, so I got to make choices based on cut and color without getting frustrated. I was amazed at how many of the pieces I liked, and I had a hard time deciding what not to buy. Roxanne is professional, responsive, thorough, inventive, and a warm, positive person. She is worth every penny.

Liz has been amazing. I hired her for her expert help in organizing and purging. I had tried to do it myself, but I was quickly overwhelmed each time. I was embarrassed when she first entered my home, but she soon eased my fears and embarrassment. She explained that the change would not be over night, but it can be lasting. Her method is logical, efficient, and effective. She not only encourages her clients to rid their space of certain items or puts items in certain places, she also explains her reasoning so that the client can maintain order and make similar decisions when she is no longer there. I purchased additional hours after our first two sessions because I knew that I wanted and needed more of her help. I am so glad I hired Liz. I just wish I had done it weeks ago.

A sustained style and image must begin with a personal level of comfort. I am not in the business of turning people into something they aren't- I am here to help enhance the real you! I focus more on quality and tend to lean more toward the classics. Appropriateness (size, age, weather, event) is key; but without compromise of individuality or sex appeal.

I hired KST by K. Symone to assist me with piecing together the clothing that I have in my closet. She came to my home and given the clothing in my closet, she created several outfits. These outfits range from clothing to wear on special occasions, such as date night to work wear. I have pieces in my closet that I purchased and would never wear because I either, 1) thought the clothing item didn’t fit or 2) I didn’t know what to wear with the clothing item. I found myself wearing the same items over and over, and would buy clothes on a weekly basis— all because I felt I didn’t “have enough clothes.” KST not only pieced the clothing together, but also taught me how to do it on my own. Now, whenever I have a question about fashion, I seek out KST by K. Symone. This fashion consultancy is the real deal and I’ll continue to use the services, without a doubt!

Melissa knew what would work for me just from the consultation. Her eye for style and attention to detail is simply amazing. Because of her, I am more confident, more comfortable, and a lot more stylish. My wardrobe was in dying need of order. Not only is it now to my liking, but Melissa got me the deals of a lifetime. I highly recommend Melissa, she is my ideal stylist.

I am a makeup and a style consultant. I bring a different perspective on creating a look. I grew up in NY, and my mom was a seamstress for Bloomingdales, Saks, etc. I majored in Textile Science and how fabrics move, textures and even what will catch fire (yikes). I love getting to know people and creating a look just for them. That's what I love, and that's what I would do.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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 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.
