Elena truly has a gift for sensing your personal style and finding an image that works for you. And she makes the whole process engaging and interactive, without feeling like you are being criticized. Elena's closet-cleanout was LIFE CHANGING! She combed through my closets with a keen eye and analyzed each piece for fit, style and overall appearance. I felt such a sense of freedom as my closet shrank, leaving only the versatile items that filled me with confidence and that really made me look my best. She also introduced the critical concept of fit. My wardrobe got a huge lift just by taking certain pieces to a tailor. Suddenly a pair of pants or a dress took on a whole new, flattering look.
Elena also has a spectacular sense of style and critical eye it comes to shopping. I walk into a Century 21 and feel overwhelmed, but she zeros in immediately on pieces that magically fit and make me look good. She advised on what pieces to invest in (a timeless bag, fabulous boots, excellent jeans) and where I can cut corners. She also has a skill for determining how to wear your clothes in different ways and jazz outfits up or down with accessories, like a well-placed scarf or pendant necklace.
No matter what the occasion, whether it's a fundraiser or a casual afternoon in the park, I dress in a way that looks for me. My closet is organized and doesn't intimidate me when I glance inside to put together an outfit. Clothes seem fun to me, as a way to express myself and arm myself with confidence in situations at work. Rather than hearing "love that dress," I now here "you look great in that outfit." Thank you, Elena!
