What do you do???

Whenever people find out I am a Personal Stylist, I get one of two reactions. They either don't understand what that really means, or if they do, they automatically assume I only work with wealthy individuals. Well, I recently found a posting online from a colleague that sums up the truth about it all...
"For many of you, when you hear “stylist,” you probably think of the famous ones who style celebrities, picking out gala gowns and prepping glamorous photo shoots. Though there is definitely a stylist that does this kind of work, there’s also a stylist who works with regular folks, normal people with a range of budgets and lifestyles and bodies…like you and me. If you’ve ever hired a lawyer, interior designer, personal trainer, architect, hair stylist or even a life coach, you’re familiar with paying for a service that provides you something that is difficult to do by yourself. You hire a stylist for the same reason–you buy your own clothes and sort through your own closet, but sometimes it really is difficult to assess your own style. A stylist will provide technical know-how by analyzing your body lines, proportion, unique coloring and style goals. But, they also help you with the emotional challenge of making a change – kind of like being a style or wardrobe therapist.
Certain other services, like sorting through your entire wardrobe and helping you create outfits from what you already have via a “closet sweep”, take time, effort and real skill. Knowing what you “should” do and then actually doing it are not always the same thing. Your “style therapist” can get you to the other side. Often she’ll help you find those few pieces that will tie together an already decent working wardrobe or get rid of things that no longer work due to weight changes, life changes, a new job or just a sense that they don’t represent who you want to be NOW."
