What to Expect:

Kristin’s proven process is highly effective and individualized based upon each client’s needs. We start with a thorough understanding of who you are, where you are in relation to your goals and what is preventing you from achieving your maximum potential.

With a variety of analytical tools, we first articulate your own unique identity. Then we unveil your ideal authentic image, incorporating elements of your physical traits, your personality style, your lifestyle and finally your level of interest in fashion (all levels welcome!).  We edit your closet and identify what’s missing to complete a wardrobe that is expressive, functional and in alignment with your goals.

Work with Kristin

Are you looking to strengthen your influence and professional look in the workplace?

Do you have amazing digital skills but lack the soft skills to get ahead in the workplace?

Or are you well experienced but unsure of how to navigate the landscape of more relaxed work environments and younger peers? 

I am so happy with my results! As a high school senior, I can confidently enter college with a professional wardrobe that represents me perfectly. I can’t wait to see all of the doors that open up for me now that I feel and look amazing going into interviews, internships, and classes.

Kristin did an amazing job analyzing my colors and working with my body type to determine the best cuts and styles for me! Her analysis went far beyond what I was expecting, and she even coached me on the types and sizes of prints which work best for me! My sincerest thanks to Kristin for her valuable coaching and professionalism – she really took the time to personalize my experience and give me the tools and guidance to put myself in the best position to succeed, both in my professional and personal life!

I would recommend Kristin’s services to anyone! She has cleared my closet of clutter and left only style. Her system has made shopping much easier (got to love the color system!). Thank you, Kristin!”

Working with Kristin has simplified my life and improved my appearance. I love my streamlined anything-goes-with-anything closet and easier shopping (not my color? Not my style? Then I don’t even have to take it off the rack!) I would recommend her services to anyone who wants to put less effort into looking better!

Kristin is an exceptional stylist and fashion expert. She was able to work with my
demanding schedule and build a C-suite wardrobe efficiently and effectively—all while
having fun, teaching me invaluable skills around designers and accessories, and educating
me how to dress for success for any occasion. She is an invaluable professional for any age
as she also works with my teenage daughter exceptional well too!

From start to finish this process was life changing! I learned how wearing the correct colors vastly improves my appearance. I actually get complimented quite often now! It’s amazing! This process has taken getting dressed from a chore I dreaded to something I now look forward to every day! Thank you, Kristin, for teaching me such valuable skills. Also, thank you for making the whole experience fun and informative. I now feel more confident about my body and my personal shape.
