- My experienced eye (wink, wink)
- My extensive training in color palettes, fit and form
- My down-to-earth attitude and ability to make you smile, no matter what
- My holistic approach to style (because YES, your personality DOES come into this)
With my instinct for shape and color, I walk you through exactly what you should be wearing to show off your best attributes, and I teach you the fine line between when to save and when to splurge.
Simply put: you don’t have to shell out tens of thousands of dollars to look like a million bucks.
You also don’t have to look the same as everybody else.
But after experimenting with my look day after day, I began to rock out my own sense of style—like the flower-print Betsy Johnson dress and peplum black jacket I showed up in at my 16th birthday party (complete with long gloves, to match).
My clothes became a way for me to express myself—just like the Madonna song.
Later, after interning for a fashion PR agency in Paris and graduating from Boston University, I started an online fashion and nightlife magazine (reaching up to a million unique visitors each month).
Before long, word about my devotion to style had spread and I found myself dressing friends back in Boston and organizing fashion shows in nightclubs.
From there, I managed to land myself a PR job in New York City, before taking the plunge and deciding to become a personal stylist full time.
So I know what it’s like to want to look your best at all times—and to fall short, time and again. And nowadays it’s my passion to help as many women as possible to unravel their personal style.
This is it, for me.
And I’ve never been happier.
