Why did you decide to start a business?

I wanted to create a service that would help women to truly understand how to shop without industry standards, trends, and media clouding their judgment and/or view of themselves.

What is your favorite client story?

The client story that comes to mind is when I did some personal shopping for my former manager, one of my first clients. She is the Production Director of Charleston Fashion Week® and has little time to find her own outfits for the week-long event. Having known her for a number of years, I created looks for her with ease, but as the saying goes, “the customer is always right.” I wanted to make sure that she actually liked the items. Not only did she like the items, but they were adopted into her daily wardrobe. To this day, she still comments on a particular maxi skirt that was purchased the shopping trip.
