Do any of these sound like you?
I have a closet full of clothes but still have “nothing to wear”!
My body has changed and now I don’t know what to wear anymore.
I have no idea what my Personal Style is, or if I even have one at all.
I feel like I’m in a rut and wear the same things over and over again.
I want to makeover my style and wardrobe, but I’m worried about making a mistake.
You just want to be able to go to your closet in the morning, easily pick out something to wear (without any stress or second guessing yourself), and walk out the door feeling confident and comfortable in your clothes and how you look.
If only it were that easy, right?
Well, it can be with my help and the Sort, Shop, & Style!
By the end of our time together, you will have a collection of clothes you are excited to wear and that can easily be mixed & matched with one another to create a variety of outfits for all areas of your life – work, weekend, date nights, you name it!
Here’s how the Sort & Shop works…
In less than 2 weeks, I will help you define your personal style, detox your closet, shop for new pieces you’ll be excited to wear,
and create a collection of head to toe outfits that you will look & feel amazing in.
Warning: Side effects include no more stress when getting dressed, along with increased confidence and daily compliments.
Session 1: The Sort (2 hours)
We’ll begin at your home with a casual chat and Style Consultation (don’t worry, it’s fun!).
After that, we’ll head to your closet so I can have a look at your current seasonal wardrobe and based on what we discussed during your Style Consultation, I’ll suggest what you should keep, donate, or alter. I may even ask you to try on a few pieces so I can see how things fit you.
While we are going through your closet, I will also be taking notes on what you need to fill in the gaps in your wardrobe, what you need to replace, and creating an overall plan for your wardrobe and our upcoming shopping session.
Session 2: The Shop (2 to 2.5 hours)
This is going to be the most fun and relaxed shopping experience you have ever had! Pinky Swear.
That’s because prior to our shopping session, I will be doing something called “pre-shopping”. What this means is that I will be going to a number of stores that fit your style and budget, and I will “borrow” the clothes from the stores and will set them all up in my Styling Suite for you to try on when you show up (the picture at the top of this page is my Toronto Styling Suite all ready for a client shopping session). It’s just you and me in the styling suite (with drinks and snacks of course) with your own private changeroom.
As you’re trying things on, we will decide together what you should keep, and then we’ll go to the stores afterward to purchase those items and return the rest.
“Getting dressed for an event could send me into a tailspin of self-doubt, which would always be a bummer. The night of my book launch for example, was at Saks in New York City, and had me on the verge of tears. I should have been celebrating as I prepared, but instead I was panicking.
Well, thank goodness for Lisa! After that rock bottom moment, I decided enough was enough and I handed the sartorial riens to Lisa and it was one of the best moves ever! In less than an hour, Lisa made sense out of my entire dilemma and nailed several genius solutions.
I now feel like I can express my true personality and style and feel prepared for anything – whether that’s running into someone at a coffee shop (and not feeling schlumpy) or making a national TV appearance. Now, a few inches of fabric will no longer hold me back from expressing my full potential in the world.
Thank you, Lisa!” – Ophira E., Astrologist @ Astrostyle.com
Are all Personal Stylists the same?
Hmmm…are all Hair Stylists the same?
Don’t you hate when someone answers a question with a question? 🙂
Seriously though, you know the saying “You get what you pay for”?
Well, you could pay absolutely nothing and go to your local department store or shopping mall and work with a “Personal Shopper” there who makes all (or at least the majority of) their income based on how much you purchase, but that may leave you wondering whether or not their advice and suggestions were really objective.
Don’t get me wrong…there’s nothing “wrong” with this and you may walk away with some fun new pieces you may have never considered before. But in all honesty, you could likely get the same end result for free if you found some well experienced retail sales staff that can show you around a store.
If you’re looking for a higher level of service and transformation though, with an experienced Personal Stylist & Image Consultant who is going to put in the time wanting to really get to know you, review your current wardrobe, create a strategic plan for making over your style and wardrobe, and support you throughout the entire process and beyond, then I’m your girl.
There is alot of work involved in what I do that comes before and after the actual shopping day – including research, pre-shopping, clothing returns, and lookbook creation – and for that reason, I don’t charge by the hour. My package pricing is based on the successful end result my clients get and the ease and speed at which I help them get there.
How many outfits will I have by the end of this and how much will I have to spend?
That varies depending on the client and service booked.
I have worked with women with a $300 budget for the season, up to a $5000 budget for one single shopping session.
During the initial process of getting to know you, we will discuss your overall budget and your comfort level with different prices points, and I promise to always stay within those parameters. Pinky swear.
In terms of how many outfits or pieces you will have by the end of this, again, that depends on your budget and the service package you choose.
How long does this service take from beginning to end?
Between all of our in person sessions, it’s roughly 7 hours of time together in person.
However, I will also be doing work before our time together like research and pre-shopping before you show up for our shopping session (this alone is about 3 + hours), as well as work done after our sessions are over like returning clothes and creating your look book.
What if I don't like anything you pick out for me?
I am proud to say I have been doing this work since 2008 and have worked with hundreds of women since that time, and this has never happened.
I will be completely honest with you though…
I can count on one hand the number of times I have worked with a client who didn’t end up with as many items as she had intially hoped to get.
The common denominator among that handful of women though, was that they were dealing with body image issues that could not simply be erased with a “magic dress” or “secret style of pants”. There were much deeper body image issues going on.
If you feel like this may be you, drop me a line and we can chat about whether this is the right time for you to be hiring a Personal Stylist or not.
