Sometimes it’s best to say no to the dress!
“The person should be more important than the clothes. We need to do less.
There is too much fashion, too much clothes, too much of everything.”
What goes around comes around
It’s happening right here, right now. We are waking up to the issues of climate change and how it will affect our lives. One of the most important waves is about what we choose to wear and how we wear it. Young people are turning to vintage and resale clothes and it’s an emerging trend not to hang on to what we own but to keep it in circulation and dial it back a big notch as consumers.
As an image consultant one of the services I offer is shopping your closet. Together we review what you have that fits and what doesn’t before we make any purchases. For example: that gorgeous leather pencil skirt you bought years ago may not fit you or your current lifestyle and it’s time for it to go to someone who will be able to wear and love it. The same goes for handbags, shoes, accessories, ties and sport coats or suits that pile up and don’t get worn because they no longer suit you. Once we get it down to what works for you then we can fill in with items that will update your look and give you options that fit and feel right.
What to do with the edits? I can take care of that too, depending on condition and value. Most of my clients opt for donation and there are several worthy organizations that I like who provide great services for the less fortunate. It’s a way to feel good about helping others and enable someone to have quality clothing options.
I also can help if items of high value need to go to alternative resources. I have a network of resale options that will work for you.
If it doesn’t fit or work for your lifestyle it’s time to say no!
“I knew my wardrobe needed help, but I didn't realize how easy it would be and how beneficial.
We spent time sorting through my closet to pull out some of the more “vintage” items as a starting point.
Judy pre-shopped on my behalf and recommended a handsome array of possibilities.
In a very short time I had an entirely new look"
