"I reached out to Theresa to find a style that would work for me on a trip to Brazil I took for vacation. She worked with me virtually and understood what I was looking for. Theresa was prompt and thorough with her recommendations. She put together a look book that made it simple for me to mix and match the items that would look great on me. I purchased the items and they did all look great on me and I received many compliments on my trip to Brazil."

"Omg what can I say about Theresa?! She is amazing and has boosted my confidence in myself through the roof! I’m a trans woman and she has already helped me discover myself through clothes. Before meeting her I was stuck in my transition at a point where I wasn’t moving forward because I wasn’t confident in my clothes or being able to find any that worked for me. Since working with her I am finally out 100 percent to everyone I know and living my best life. She gets to know you and your personality and takes that to design a wardrobe for you that is just spot on to what you know you’ve always wanted but were unable to to figure out. Everything she has shown to me actually speaks to me and I see myself in each piece. She is just flat out AMAZING and I recommend her to anyone and everyone!"

"Theresa has a gift for helping people see what is right in from of them! I am 65 years old and was very hesitant to reach out for help... After a morning of great fun and creative rearranging she managed to leave me with over 20 outfits I loved, complete with shoes and accessories! I don't know how she does it, but I now approach my closet with a touch of magic, as opposed to a bolt of dread!"

"I worked with Theresa virtually with a very short turnaround period of 2 weeks (and she delivered in 1 week !). I was doubtful that virtual styling would work, but the framework that Theresa has set up is practical and delivers same results as any in person service would do. The pricing was great. As for service, Theresa has an amazing eye and is creative, yet practical. She was aligned to my needs and kept checking with me frequently so as to stay in sync with my needs. I now have access to multiple options in wardrobe and I am set for at least a few years! Thank you Theresa."

"I hired Theresa for a closet audit. She did a wonderful job of helping me find new life for some pieces I thought I needed to get rid of and making me comfortable letting go of pieces which no longer worked for me. Despite filling two bags full of clothes to let go of, she helped me identify over twenty new outfits. The process was fun and efficient."

"Theresa helped me figure out attire for a friend’s wedding. I only had a week to get clothes together and she was able to work quickly for me. I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to wear but I gave her my general idea and she gave me many options. After I reviewed the options she gave me, she was able to refine the options even more to my liking. Ultimately, Theresa helped me pick a final outfit for the wedding that allows me to feel stylish and confident. I am more than happy with her service and would absolutely recommend her to anyone! Thanks!"

"Theresa has been amazing to work with. She has helped me move out of my comfort zone and try new things. She has helped me build up my wardrobe and shown me how to mix and match new items to feel more put together. She is fun to work with and very talented. She has been a blessing for me. I do not understand how she so quickly finds items for my body type, that I never would have tried, but I end up loving! I highly recommend her services."

"I contacted Theresa to help me style my engagement photos. She recommended a One Time styling session. She picked outfits we already owned and would have NEVER tried. I'm so happy with my photos, and plan to use her services again."

"Theresa is awesome. I was looking to up my personal style and she was the exact person I was looking for. She was patient in working with me in order to figure out exactly the type of image I was going for and take my thoughts and translate them into actual fashion and actual outfits. She put together an awesome shopping list for me that ended up being exactly what I needed and was exactly what I was looking for. I would 100% recommend her and would definitely (and plan to!) work with her again."
