Melanie changed my life!!! I had no sense of style and zero interest in shopping or fashion, I thought I was hopeless(!!), but I decided enough was enough dressing like a slob every day. Melanie helped me build a whole new wardrobe and showed me the most flattering clothing types, colors and patterns for my body and skin tone. She is one of the kindest people who is truly great at what she does. She's patient and challenged me to step outside my comfort zone without ever being pushy. She really understood me, my age, the time in my life I was going through and what I was trying to achieve; She never pushed a style on me that wasn't me or that I wasn't comfortable with. Melanie made the entire process so comfortable and judgment-free and was the easiest person in the world to talk to and confide in - I felt like I could trust her and talk to her like a close friend. Not only do I feel more confident and put together in my outfits, but I look at clothing completely differently now - I can go into a store and recognize what could look good on my body and I actually enjoy shopping and finding pieces that I can feel good about wearing. I love getting dressed now and thinking about how to put together outfits. Everything I've gained is far beyond any outcome I could have ever thought possible when I first went into the process. Hiring Melanie was one of the best decisions I've EVER made and has completely transformed my life - if you are even thinking about hiring a stylist don't hesitate another moment to see what she can do for you. I have recommended her to all my friends and family, and cannot wait to hire her again for my next season's wardrobe!!!!Jun 28, 2018Verified
Melanie is a true professional who absolutely KNOWS how to style her client’s. I’ve not had any sense of style or ability to figure out what works for my body type. After losing a very significant amount of weight I decided NOW was the time to invest in me. I couldn’t have made a better choice and I am even complemented on my outfits now (that’s never happened). If you’re unsure about hiring a virtual stylist choose Melanie, you will not be disappointed.Nov 29, 2019Verified
Melanie's services have changed my life. Being a working mom of 3, she has helped me simplify my wardrobe. I love her eye for fashion and ability to mix designer with low price. She was so attentive to my budget and style. She has made this working mom of three one happy and even more stylish mama. & heres the link to add it! THANK YOU!!!!!Mar 10, 2018
I’ve never worked with a I style consultant before and I’m sorry that I didn’t Melanie was so gracious and talented -in fact the first dress I tried on was the one for a very large event this weekend oh I forgot to tell you I waited to the last minute to do this Now I truly feel absolutely confident and will be the belle of the ball in my new dress I would have never picked out this dress myself or the five others that I ended up buying for various occasions over the next year Worth every penny!Oct 7, 2019Verified

This way when we meet (in person or virtually) to efficiently use our time together and achieve your desired results.
