Personal Stylist Misconceptions: What is a Closet Analysis?
March 27, 2020 at 4:00 AM

There are several misconceptions surrounding personal stylists. Many assume that a stylist will come into your house, throw out all your clothes, and insist you wear something uncomfortable or far out of your comfort zone. 

Thankfully, this couldn't be further from the truth. Unfortunately, assumptions like these keep women who would really benefit from a personal stylist from hiring one, so we want to set the record straight!

Closet Analysis: Keep What You Love

The idea that a stylist will want to throw out all of your clothes is totally inaccurate. Instead of having the stylist make all the decisions, you'll get to engage in a fun, productive, and informative closet analysis. With a closet analysis, you and your stylist will be going through your items together. 

You'll decide which items to keep, which to lose, and why. Have trouble letting go of clothes? An experienced stylist is your best friend. They'll help you prioritize and showcase the best parts of your wardrobe that make you feel great while revamping the parts that aren't working for you anymore. 

Your Outfit's New, But Still Like You

A fear many women have in hiring a personal stylist is that the stylist will pick out clothing that's too far out of their comfort zone. Almost everyone has certain clothing items that they're not comfortable wearing, and that's totally okay. 

The goal of a great stylist is to accommodate your lifestyle, magnify your best features, and elevate your current look. With us, you'll be introduced to new and interesting pieces that are fine-tuned for you, your tastes, and goals. 

It should never be the mission of a stylist, or anyone, to change who you are. We want to show off who you are with some amazing looks you can wear out on the town, to the office, and beyond. 

How Personal is a Personal Stylist Really?

Some fear that a stylist won't take into account their tastes, their current wardrobe, their lifestyle, or all the other details that go into how you dress. We go above and beyond to ensure that we understand you and your vision for how you'd like your new closet to look like. 

That's why we have in-depth consultations and a wide variety of styling package options for our clients to choose from. This includes the option of going shopping with your stylist in-store or having them do it on your behalf, a personal packing option for vacations, and three different featured packages to accommodate your individual needs.
