    Yoda is the best!
    Yoda was extremely responsive and helpful, not to mention so sweet. We got a long great off the bat and her creative eye helped me get some great outfits together for upcoming photoshoots and shows. She even made a custom blazer for me! I highly recommend Yoda for your styling needs!

    Fantastic Shopping Resource
    Yoda is an amazing resource. Her services are totally worth it! She helped me find my look and we had so much fun. Sign up with her and you'll be glad you did.

    I was impressed by the amount of 'yesssss' moments while looking through Yodassa's collection of clothing. She has great taste! Lots of fun surprises await while shopping her hand picked collection. She has a warm inviting demeanor! Very talented.

    Yoda was awesome. I met her at an event in Oakland and she was selling some dresses. I needed a dress for an event I was performing at in NYC and was overworked and overwhelmed and had no time to shop. She helped me pick out a dress, figured out exactly what to style it with in terms of jacket, tights and boots, stayed up all night to alter this beautiful sequined dress for me and a few days later, I picked it up from her and tried it on. She was so nice. She even helped me pick out a stylish hat for freezing February in NYC. I got so many compliments. I owe it to her. I am not the type of person who ever saw myself going to a stylist. It just sort of happened, but I would do so again and I am referring her to many hard-working professional women I know who need help finding clothes for an occasion or just to add some verve to their wardrobe now and again with the help of a trusted professional.

    Yoda helped me find the perfect purse. I was looking for a large, black purse, that was both chic and simple. Something I could wear with almost everything, and that could fit my laptop. She sent a couple emails with options so I could help her refine her search, and within a couple of days she found the best purse ever! I'm really busy and don't have time to go shopping or really spend a lot of time doing these kind of things online, so having her help was really wonderful. Thank you!!

    Yoda is a styling genius who can help you feel comfortable and look your best, and whatever budget you have, she can work with it! I was looking for a specific kind of dress for a choral concert and had to follow a certain style guide (and be able to breathe in the dress). Yoda found a bunch of options and then one dress was amazing! She also does hair & makeup and got me looking great for a San Francisco concert. I highly recommend her work.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
1) Identify what it is that you need the most: An outfit for a specific event? Organizing of your current wardrobe? Purchasing of items to add flair to existing staples? 2) Be honest with yourself and your stylist about what you want to emphasize and minimize about yourself. 3) Keep an open mind - try on things that you wouldn't otherwise, take notes, challenge the way you dress and see yourself
