I found Tara Hooper at “The Style Signature” on Thumbtack after researching this for WEEKS for a birthday present for my wife. My wife is in technical marketing and international business and after some recent promotions, we felt the need to seek out some fashion help.
In researching this, I went to so many web sites and spoke to several people. I found lots of people that would have had her shopping in the most expensive stores in Dallas and dress her inappropriately, especially for her work. And several who would have had her spend a fortune to look like something that would only be appropriate to walk Paris runways. But none of that is helpful.
I needed a professional that understood how to look professional and could dress my wife like the successful business woman she is. I needed someone who could help her feel comfortable on a plane and look appropriate when presenting in San Francisco, London or Shanghai. And yes, there was also a need to be cute on a night out in Dallas.
I was very happy to have finally found Tara Hooper. I liked that she had an education that included study overseas and was well-traveled. And I really liked that she had an impressive resume of proven success, helping lots of women realize their full potential in the business world.
Tara has a great web site with several great packages, but she was kind enough to tailor a package of essential elements that got me into a price range I felt comfortable with. We decided to do two sessions. One that included a haircut, an extensive makeup session, an analysis of the colors that looked best on my wife, and several other things that proved to be invaluable. The other was a shopping spree at stores that sold clothes that fit her personal needs and was in a price range that she felt comfortable with. A target budget for this shopping spree was set in advance, so that Tara could find the stores that were right for her. When my wife got there, there were several outfits set out for her to try on, based on the price, the sizes and the colors that looked best on her. (Not that she stuck to the budget….But Tara made a bold attempt, to no avail…)
My wife came home feeling confident and excited to go to work. She even volunteered to go with me to an event that she would have NEVER wanted to go to before, just so she could wear her new clothes! And after the shopping trip, when my wife had questions about things and needed some advice, she texted Tara and got a response back immediately!
Tara was everything I wanted and so much more. The whole experience was so much more than we expected. It was an entire image makeover! My wife is already talking about getting with Tara in the spring to pick out spring and summer clothes.
