Great experience with Val! Thank you so much for revamping my wardrobe. She thoughtfully hand-selects new pieces that fit my style, personality and budget. She makes shopping a breeze

I loved working with Val to revamp my wardrobe after having my first child. I knew I was in need of a closet refresh, but I struggled to know where to start and lacked the time or energy to shop regularly. Val is kind and thorough, and she has a great eye! I am very satisfied with the process and plan to continue booking her.

I am on my second package of 10 sessions with Valerie. Over the years I have used many shoppers. Closet cleaners, and fashion helpers and those who put outfits together. Valerie is the best I have encountered. She knows what she is doing, how to go about it and is very quick and efficient with my time. I have found that she listens to my needs and knows how to go about doing what I want done instead of what she wants to do during that session. She is a pleasure to work with and she has put my closet together, put me together and helped me fill in my wardrobe. She arrives on time and is not a clock watcher. Before she leaves the place is cleaned up and I can walk out the door. She is the best I have ever used.

I have used just about every one of Val’s services- wardrobe cleanup, in-person shopping, online recommendations, and putting together a look book, and have benefited from all of them. My main motivation was that I don’t like clothes shopping when it’s something I have to do— it’s stressful and time consuming. I was rewearing the same things all the time because I didn’t like most of what I owned, and the items I did wear I always wore the same way. Before finding Val I tried Stitch Fix and Trunk Club with pretty poor results. I also tried free personal shoppers at department stores but I always felt like I left having paid for stuff that didn’t look good on me, likely because they got commission for everything they sold me. Then I found Val. I think it was super helpful to start with the wardrobe consult so she could see what I already had to work with, get to know what I liked, and see how things looked on me. It also motivated me to get rid of a ton. I wanted to rebuild the majority of my wardrobe so I did two separate shopping trips in two different seasons. It was so much better than the free department store experience- she doesn’t get any commission so doesn’t hesitate to tell you what doesn’t work, and taught me about how to wear stuff- like how to dress the same top up or down or take it from work to a date after. I love that I can just flip through the look book on my phone and pick out an outfit without thinking about it, but if you have to do without a service that’s the one I think I got the least bang for my buck for—I would have liked to get more outfits put together for the price. 10/10 recommend!

My husband gifted me with a Shop With VaI experience right before Mother’s Day. I appreciated the time she took to answer my questions and prepare me for our 2 hour shopping spree. She was very professional and listened to what I wanted. I do not like to shop for clothes, so this experience made it easy to add great pieces to my wardrobe! I am in awe of how much ground we covered in two hours! I went over the budget I had set because there were so many great items I liked that Val chose. What was great is that I never felt pressured to buy anything. There were a few pieces I said no and we didn’t even try them on! Even though I am open to all possibilities, if I don’t like the color or pattern, I don’t waist time trying on items. I recommend for anyone who is in a style rut to hire Val to help you!
