Are you in need of a more flattering, modern, stylish or professional look? Whether you are in the public eye, clueless or simply too busy, Vanessa will help you create a wardrobe that enhances your body type, fits your personal aesthetic, and works with your lifestyle.
Before Vanessa begins any service with a client, she sits down with you for a consultation to discuss the look you want. She asks you a series of questions and has you browse through a carefully constructed fashion look book. The vast majority of the time the consultation takes place at the clients home directly before the Closet Purge.
For those that want to skip the Closet Purge and go straight to Personal Shopping, the Consultation takes place at Vanessa’s office in Hillcrest, or you have a phone consultation. For the phone consultation to be as effective as an in person meeting, you need to provide Vanessa with your sizes, and she asks you to create a Pinterest Board.
Once Vanessa understands your goals, she will help you eliminate ill-fitting and outdated garments in your wardrobe that do not go with your desired appearance, and identify the clothing that still works.
Vanessa is available to organize your clothes, shoes and accessories so that everything is orderly and accessible to you.
Vanessa finds the key articles of clothing that your wardrobe is missing in order to create the image you want. You can shop together or she can shop without you and then bring the purchases to your home or office. When she shops with you, she pulls the clothing you will be trying on before your session starts so you arrive to a full dressing room.
Vanessa also provides online shopping. When shopping online, Vanessa e-mails you direct links to items so you know exactly what to purchase. You can decide what to keep by yourself, or Vanessa can come to your home to help decide. If need be, Vanessa can purchase the items online for you and bring them to your home.
Vanessa creates outfits from your existing wardrobe, new purchases or both. For each look she creates for you she takes a photo so you won’t forget the combination. She can then e-mail you the photos for you to organize or she can upload the photos to your personalized Virtual Closet (explained below).
VIRTUAL CLOSET CREATION:
The Virtual Closet is divided into categories personal to how you get dressed. Here are three examples of virtual closets…
