What Clients are saying about: Anna

-Attorney, Miami, FL

Between my new firm, my two and a half year old daughter and a new pregnancy, I had no time to dress my changing body. I was so happy to have Anna from Style Spies help me in this department! She brought me a variety of dresses that would work with my growing belly. I was very happy with the selection, styles and comfort and best of all the prices of the garments! No one wants to spend a fortune on clothes you will only need for a few months. So, thank you Style Spies!

-Stay at Home Mom, Miami, FL

It was such a great experience to work with Anna from Style Spies. I really liked the whole process. It was easy and fun. I just had my second baby and was feeling unattractive and a little down about my new body. Anna really helped me get my self esteem back. She created some super cute outfits for me that really worked with my new figure and made me look so cute!! And of course they were all breastfeeding friendly which was very important to me since my new baby need to feed every two hours. And the best part is that I didnt need to leave my house! Anna came to my house only twice with many outfits to choose from, helped me get dressed (I had a c section) and showed me how to work the clothes! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

-PHD, Miami, FL

As a new mommy/post-doctoral fellow/soon-to-be Assistant Professor, I want to look stylish and professional on campus but don’t have time to shop or figure outfits out. That’s why working with Anna has been wonderful. She’s on the pulse with the latest styles and knows how to balance these with staples. I gave Anna a budget and features I needed from clothes, including easy access for nursing my baby, and she was able to create some amazingly trendy yet comfortable outfits that fit both bills!!! Her timely manner and attention to what I needed is much appreciated and I look forward to working with her to keep me stylish on campus for years to come. Thank you Style Spies for another happy stylish mommy story.

-Post Doctoral Fellow, Miami, FL

I was so happy to have Anna recommended to me in regards to styling my newly pregnant body. I am pregnant with my second baby and did not want to look frumpy during this pregnancy! I gave Anna a small budget (did not want to break the bank since it is only for a few months I need these clothes) and she was able to come up with the cutest and most versatile closet for me! I am in love with my new shoes, and my super cute outfits. I wore one outfit to the oultrasound clinic today and got so many compliments! I was specific in what I needed and Anna was able to provide me with just that. Thank you Anna for your excellent styling skills!!

 

What Clients are saying about: Erin

-Realtor, Houston, TX

Erin was wonderful to work with!  She came into my tiny closet and helped me get rid of some clothes I didn’t need as well as help me pick out a few new essentials.  She took inventory on what I had and made note of items that I needed to pair with my existing items.  The very next day I had a bag at my front door with the perfect blazer I had been needing. She knew what I would like and I didn’t even have to leave home to search for it.

Not only did she help with the clothes, she helped me organize!  We came up with a plan to make better use of my small space – a few measurements and some easy built-ins I can now walk in and pull out an outfit already put together.  Thanks Erin!!

-Business Owner, Houston, TX

I loved having Erin come out and go through my closet. She took my old tired clothes and with a few suggestions updated my wardrobe to fit my needs and look stylish doing so. It was easy getting rid of the clothes that were old and worn out because Erin was so much fun. Not only did she go through my closet but she also packed my suitcase for an upcoming trip to Puerto Rico. Definitely will recommend her to friends and will do it again.

-Teacher, Houston, TX

Erin was such a great help at organizing my closet and putting outfits together, giving me ideas on accessorizing and different ways to wear my blazers, blouses and denim (belting them, rolling the sleeves, or just changing out the buttons)……so simple and I love the new looks and the compliments I get!

It’s so nice to have a fresh look to my closet and the outfits I put together.   Erin was very confident in her presentation and I was so comfortable working with her……thanks Erin!

 

-Lawyer, Springfield, MO

I thought Erin with Style Spies was very helpful.  She has given me great focus on what to buy in the future.  I wanted to get away from buying the same things over and over and didn’t know how to begin.  With her help, I now have a good idea how to add pieces to begin my transformation.  I also have a better idea of what to do with current clothing and to make more ‘fun outfits’ with what I already have in my closet.  Thank you Erin!

 

What Clients are saying about: Melanie 

-Independent Consultant, Leawood, KS

Melanie with Style Spies is fabulous!  We recently moved to Kansas, which is where I met Melanie.  I had not updated my wardrobe since changing professions. Currently, I use my home as a base with meetings throughout the city, and am also a full time mom to 2 little ones.  Melanie helped me weed through items in my closet in a timely manner but more importantly, she showed me different pieces I would need to update my professional and “stylish” mom wardrobes without breaking the bank!  I had an upcoming shopping day planned with a dear friend and with Melanie’s help, I was armed with a list of “what to buy”.  She has helped me stretch my conservative style to a more playful fun look, which is more my personality.  I will continue to ask for Melanie’s advice as the seasons change.  I also love following her on her blog: http://yourstylescout.blogspot.com !!

-Stay at Home Mom, Leawood, KS

I couldn’t wait to have Melanie come help me with my closet! She was so amazing! I think we donated 6-8 bags of clothes! Without her help I would have kept the ten extra hoodies I didn’t need:). She also helped me with the “must-haves”. I used to walk in my closet and have nothing to wear to go out. Now I always have the staple items, so I can always put something together. She is so stylish and has great ideas! I will definitely have her come a few times a year to keep me in check… And in style!

-Vice President, Chicago, IL

Melanie is the best! She is my personal style guru. I am a male business professional who needs to look good for work, and I prefer to look relaxed and stylish on the weekends.  After getting to know me, she tailored her advice to my taste and lifestyle- from suits to shoes, jeans, sneakers and everything in between. She has a great eye for what’s “in” but not too trendy (I’m not a teenager and don’t want to look like one). I even get her advice on gifts for my wife and friends. Now I don’t make any important purchases without consulting her and she has never let me down!

-Executive Director, Kansas City, MO

I would highly recommend Melanie Knopke for a complete closet makeover. She really helped me take a good, hard look at everything in my closet and clean house. We were able to get through it all within about 3 hours and had fun doing it. She helped me stay on track, separate my things into keep-sell-donate piles and she even had me try things on that I was afraid to part with. Melanie took the time to find a few options for donations and consignment so the project has turned into a little money maker for me. The icing on the cake were the gorgeous velvet hangers that she found for me at Costco. This was well worth it and Melanie is so talented.

 

What Clients are saying about: Mollie 

-Stay at Home Mom, Libertyville, IL

It has been over a month since my Style Spies closet consultation (with Mollie) and in that time I haven’t uttered ‘What should I wear?’ once.  With their expertise and eye for detail, my closet has been streamlined in a way that compliments my busy mom lifestyle.  They also identified key pieces my wardrobe that were missing and then went the extra step to find those items for me.  By taking my own style into consideration as well, I feel their service has been just the boost my confidence, and budget, have needed.  Well done!!!

-Oncologist, Deerfield, IL

I was lucky enough to meet Mollie in the neighborhood, and I reached out to her to rescue my sad closet!  After 2 babies, I had no idea how to dress my new shape.   I also needed assistance dressing for work, for nights out, and for running errands with the kids.  I had a lack of insight, a lack of space, and, I now realize, a lack of basic wardrobe items helpful in building a visually interesting and updated outfit.  I was very nervous about exposing my closet vulnerability, but Mollie handled it with warmth, acceptance, and fun!  Mollie rapidly went through my closet and identified pieces worth saving and mixed them with other closet items I never would have imagined!  She also quickly created a significant amount of space by eliminating the outdated, ill-fitting, and faded clothes.  Mollie also comes with electronic and written copies of the building block items critical in building a successful wardrobe…and identified what I already had, and the gaps that I would need to fill.  Our shopping trip was a tremendous success, and a ton of fun.  Mollie found several fabulous items (clothing and accessories) I never would have selected, and showed me how to create multiple outfits useful for different occasions from these items.   We also stayed within my budget!  My closet variety is significantly improved, and I can’t wait for a future fall shopping trip.  Mollie is the best, and I can’t recommend her enough.  Worth it!

-Executive President, Chicago, IL

Mollie and I had not met before she arrived to review my not so wonderfully organized closet. Her casual warm approach prompted me to (with Mollie’s gentle and practical point of view)  rid myself of 20 year old suits and my favorite t-shirts with holes. Ten bags later I could see what I really had in my closet and with Mollie’s great advice the things I really needed to fill in my wardrobe. I now have one less thing to worry about in the morning as I  get dressed with confidence.

-Editor, Chicago, IL

I reached out to StyleSpies after months (let’s be honest … years) of a growing wardrobe crisis. It all stems back to right after my first baby was born in 2006.  I lost my ability to shop for myself and even to know what suited my newly-proportioned figure, and I had no patience for trying anything on anymore. Nor did I have the time. The turning point finally came when I somehow made it through last fall and winter with a single pair of North Face fuzzy wuzzy tundra boots, yet no fashion boots. I was that person wearing ballet flats in December and January. Finally this spring, I knew I had to deal with my crisis, as the yoga pant and fleece wardrobe was on its last legs. StyleSpies and Mollie Milano to the rescue! In three hours flat, Mollie thoughtfully and efficiently helped me sort through my closet and divide into three piles … Goodwill, consignment and keepers. (There was a fourth pile that we deemed unacceptable even for Goodwill, but I won’t go into that.) Molly showed me how to re-purpose some keepers that I would’ve thrown out, and she gave me a cheat sheet booklet on now to look put together with a bare minimum of accessories and critical outfit pieces. She then made a list of “must buys” for me to round out my late winter and spring/summer wardrobe, and she even told me where to find what I needed. Mollie is so patient and really listened to my (many) issues, plus she made the process so easy and painless. I know I couldn’t have even cleaned out my closet without her, much less revamped my wardrobe. My closet is now streamlined and I’m excited to put a new fashion foot forward this spring and summer. I highly recommend StyleSpies to all my friends. It’s one of the best things I’ve done for myself in the past five years!

-Pharmacist, Madison, WI

After reaching out to Mollie my closet now looks more manageable!  I was in a rut of buying the same things over and over again or buying things just because “they were a good deal”.  Mollie gave me insight into what is working in my closet and what wasn’t cutting it anymore.  She was quick, professional, and fun!  She gave me ideas on what to wear together and also what I was missing in my closet.  I know feel much more fashionable!  Thank you Mollie!

 

What Clients are saying about: Tina

-Occupational Therapist, San Diego, CA

I have never been someone with a lot of fashion sense, but Tina helped me put together outfits that are flattering and fun (and they were already in my own closet!).  She helped me say goodbye to things that NEEDED to go, and pieced together outfits that made me feel stylish! I have already received many compliments on what she put together for me. She also helped me to shop and see items I would not have picked for myself, but worked well with my style and body type.  She has an eye for style and gets excited helping others feel great in what they wear! She is wonderful; what a gift.

-Vice President, San Diego, CA

I am a busy guy and I don’t have the time nor patience to shop around for clothing, that’s why I hired Tina.  She was able to pick out a variety of pieces to update my wardrobe from casual shirts to business shirts to some new jeans and sweaters.  Tina forced me to add colors and styles that I wouldn’t normally gravitate towards but am very happy she did.  I have received many compliments from my peers on some of these new looks and it feels good to know I didn’t have to work hard for it.
