What an experience! Before I hired Melissa, I hated shopping for clothes and felt like getting dressed in the morning was the worst part of my day. I felt like the clothes I had didn't fit me well and I didn't feel like I had a sense of style or fashion. These were only some of the reasons I ended up on a search for a personal stylist. Before making the commitment, Melissa spoke with me at length over the phone 3 times to answer all of my questions and help me better understand the process. I ultimately chose to do a Refresh and Reboot. Melissa asked me a variety of questions to better understand where I was coming from and what I was seeking. She got to know me as a person throughout the process and actually made shopping fun! I asked her to push me out of my comfort zone a little and she did exactly that. She understood my personality and what I liked and made sure that my wardrobe reflected that, but she also added in a few pieces that allowed me to see how I could cultivate a different look with my clothes. She was nonjudgmental, patient, and FUN - all of which made the experience incredibly rewarding. I appreciated the fact that she took the time to get to know me and tailored her services to ensure that I was finding the process beneficial and enjoyable. I am so glad I hired Melissa and would recommend her to anyone looking for a stylist. She has an eye for fashion, knows what she's doing, and is truly committed to her clients. Thank you for such an unforgettably wonderful experience, Melissa!!Dec 10, 2018Verified
A delight to be around and knows her craft extremely well. Well worth the time and investment and she saved me so MUCH time as she brought all the clothes to me. (Me going into a mall = 6th layer of Dante's Inferno.) We updated both my work and casual wardrobe. Got advice about what styles flatter me. Cleaned a ton out of my closet (and I had already cleaned it out twice!) Couldn't have asked for a better experience. If you want a stylist, hire MJB. I interviewed a few others and no one else compared at al!Sep 16, 2019Verified
Not only does Melissa incorporate the timeless pieces in your wardrobe but she'll help you find just the right pieces to achieve the look you are striving for. My whole wardrobe is now fashionable and comfortable! It embodies both my professional and fun side. My confidence is through the roof! One of the best investments for myself that I've made.Apr 14, 2017Verified
Melissa was absolutely fantastic! I booked the Refresh and Reboot session as a gift for my brother-in-law and he says she unleashed his inner fashionisto:) lol. He is usually pretty "choosy" ;) and wasn't sure of what he liked/didn't like but she listened to his concerns and made suggestions while still allowing him to be true to himself. She then helped me find a ton of different outfits for him, all while helping me to stick to a budget (something that isn't always easy for me lol). She also makes things easier by handling the returns afterwards and she developed a lookbook for him to see how he can put outfits together. He loved this!!! (And so did we since now we can keep him accountable lolll ;)) I would definitely recommend her services to anyone that is not quite sure or their individual style or would like to enhance it... or to anyone that honestly just doesn't know where/how to shop! Melissa has been in the fashion industry for over a decade and she knows what she's doing. She is also extremelyyy personable and will make you feel relaxed throughout the entire process :)). I recommend her services without any reservations and I can't wait to use her Refine service for my own closet in the future! 😄😄 Thank You Melissa!!!Apr 20, 2017Verified
We recently used Melissa Bermudez of MJB Style Solutions for her Refresh & Reboot Service. My son, who is heading off to college shortly & has lost a significant amount of weight recently, really needed an "image makeover" & after interviewing several prospective companies we chose Melissa. Well, we definitely made the right decision! I can't say enough positive things about her & her service. She was extremely responsive both before & during the service, was pleasant to work with, was able to relate to both myself & my teenage son. She took all of the time, effort, & stress out of reviving his wardrobe, and shopped for both his everyday wardrobe, work wardrobe, as well as prom & a relative's Bat Mitzvah that we have coming up. She created a Pinterest board for him, prepared an electronic look book which takes all of the guesswork out of getting dressed each morning & shows him how to put together the pieces he has in over 30 combinations. As a busy working mother, time is something I just don't have enough of. She listened carefully, kept organized records of what we wanted to purchase & the events/occasions we needed to cover, and took my son shopping with her. She was able to get him to try on multiple items (something he hates to do with me), and introduced him to several new fashion trends that look great on him. He got almost a dozen compliments on his first day back at school after his shopping trip, which made him feel great & thrilled me. Whether you're re-doing or adding to your wardrobe for a special event, weight loss, or just a fresh new look, I would highly recommend Melissa. Her rates are very reasonable, she handles everything from beginning to end (including returns if needed) & she is a pleasure to work with. We are already planning to use her again before he leaves for college to get his winter wardrobe. Thanks Melissa & MJB Style Solutions for a GREAT JOB!May 10, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I leave the quote as "more information needed for pricing" because I believe in perfectly customizing my services to fit YOUR exact needs. I DO NOT charge by the hour because I don’t believe in a quick fix or a "one size fits all" service. I want you to leave the experience knowing more about the best way to dress your body I'm here to listen to your style goals & challenges and to offer the best solution!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?1. FREE DISCOVERY CALL I want to learn about YOU, your personality, style goals and challenges. Your wardrobe should serve your lifestyle. What does that look like for you on a daily basis? Most importantly, I want to learn how you want to feel in your clothes. Confident? Sexy? Comfortable? This conversation will be the baseline for building your dream wardrobe. Based on your style goals, I'll offer the service(s) that are the best fit and include ALL the details about the process, pricing and shopping budget. We'll schedule our first appointment for your wardrobe review! 2. WARDROBE REVIEW During our relaxed Wardrobe Review, we will go through the clothing, shoes and accessories you already own. We will discuss brands you like, take measurements and I'll create a strategic shopping list of the basics, essentials and investment pieces that will round out your wardrobe. To capture your style inspirations, we will start a Private Pinterest Board. 3. LET THE FUN BEGIN! Based on the services chosen, we will schedule our next appointment.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Previous to starting MJB style solutions, I was as a Visual Merchandiser for over a decade on both a Regional and National level. My responsibilities included creating outfits for women, men and kids for store presentations, press photo shoots and individual clients. I enjoyed the ability to serve others by helping them look in such a way that their inner confidence was more palpable. Dressing people of different sizes, shapes and lifestyles has sharpened my ability to style any client. Combining my BA in Economics (Rutgers, Unv.) and experience in all aspects of fashion retail from design, to production, in store presentations and customer service, I was thrilled to be able to build a business that not only allows me to help others but helps others gain the most value for their time and money.
