What an amazing experience with Katelyn! She is a brilliant stylist with a real eye for bringing to life all the best aspects of one's body and personality through style. When we first met, I had adopted a drab daily wardrobe of all black. On top of that, as a really petite woman, I found myself struggling to find well-fitting clothing that suited my frame. Katelyn took me from a dark and dreary-looking closet, to a vibrant and fashion-forward wardrobe that really expresses my personality and compliments every part of my body. I had the full suite of services from Katelyn, and with each one, her passion for the work shone through. She was meticulous, listened carefully, and was able to work within my preferences while still helping me to look outside of the narrow style-box I had created for myself. Between the closet edit, personal shopping, and helping me understand what will work on my body, I look incredibly polished and put-together. I have been stopped multiple times by strangers who have something wonderful to say about my sartorial choices. Together we found some hidden gems in my closet that, with some tailoring, have become new staples, and found some items out shopping that are amazing statement pieces.Mar 26, 2015
Having never worked with Thumbtack, I went into this experience not knowing about the quality of service and care. Katelyn responded quickly, professionally, and diligently. I was blown away by Katelyn's attention to detail in regards to her initial correspondence, her professionalism, her help and attentiveness to my needs and desires for a personal stylist. I wish I could give her more then five stars!Mar 7, 2016Verified
Katelyn was great!!! We had a closet edit scheduled at noon and she showed up on time. She is very nice and has a way of making you feel comfortable. We literally went thought every single item in my closet - shoes included!! We talked about what I liked/didn't like about each item and she gave her comments as to what needed to be altered, donated, or kept. From there she was keeping a list of items that we could buy during our shopping session to compliment what I already had in my closet. The closet edit took exactly 3 hours and I feel great and so refreshed!! I can't wait to go shopping with Katelyn so that we can fill in my closet (it's so empty now that I got rid of most of it!). Katelyn has a great sense of fashion and ability to relate to the client. She didn't try to force me into getting rid of things that I didn't want to get rid of or force a style onto me that I wasn't comfortable with. I highly recommend Katelyn and can't wait to work with her again in a few weeks!!Nov 29, 2015Verified
This is my first time using a personal stylist/professional. This is definitely something out of my comfort zone, but a decision I came to that I needed some professional consultation. I am so glad that I engaged Katelyn to help me with my quest. I found Katelyn on line via Thumbtack, which I have used to find other professional non-related services. As a busy professional, I was exceptionally pleased with Katelyn's responsiveness to my request, communication and inquiry to my exact needs. I am also thrilled that she was on time, ready to work and performed the service as I had requested. I will be looking forward to working with Katelyn on addition services and have a high degree of confidence in her expertise.Jan 7, 2015Verified
I attended a Group Fashion Consultation with Katelyn Milley and a group of friends on September 28, 2019. Katelyn taught us so many things to help us to identify our personal styles and helpful information such as our most flattering necklines. Our group of five women shared many smiles throughout our Group Fashion Consultation. We admired one another’s inspirational photos and explanations and of course we asked Katelyn questions to learn as much new information as possible. Since our Group Fashion Consultation with Katelyn, I have even written up a plan of the items I will purchase based on the style I have defined for myself.Oct 15, 2019
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?After you and I have agreed upon a date and time for your service, I send you a contract to review and sign. The contract outlines my payment policy as well as travel policy and other details clients should be aware of. My services require a deposit for half of the service's full cost. The remaining fee will be due the day the services are rendered. My travel policy dictates that I cover the cost of the first 50 miles (round trip) required. Any remaining milage will be billed to you at $1.00 a mile.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I was determined to give myself the best possible foundation for a successful career, so I took classes in anything that could further my knowledge about fashion and styling, including a fashion illustration class and photography classes. For two consecutive years, I was one of only five hundred people selected to take part in Teen Vogue Fashion University, where I attended classes and lectures in Fashion Design, Make-Up, Visual Merchandising, Costume Design, Fashion Blogging and Social Networking. Shortly after, I was thrilled to take classes with the School Of Style, receiving an education specifically in fashion, wardrobe and personal styling. I then decided to further my personal styling education by studying with The Style Core, where I became a certified level one consultant.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?When I was twelve years old, I read through the band credits in the liner notes of a CD and discovered they not only had a hairstylist and make-up artist, but a wardrobe stylist that put together the fantastic outfits the band was wearing. I knew right away that was exactly what I wanted to do.
