How do I describe my shopping experiences with Erica? What stands out most is the way that I feel after spending the afternoon with her – empowered, confident, beautiful and ready to take on the world. Growing up as a tomboy did not prepare me for dressing the part of a successful, independent woman living in the Metro NYC area. I absolutely hated shopping because I had no idea what style of clothes would best flatter my body type so shopping has always been a painful and torturous experience which I avoided at all costs. Eventually I realized that in order to start climbing the career ladder, I needed to look like a capable, ambitious, dynamic leader and nothing in my closet came close to conveying that image. I begged Erica for a wardrobe intervention and she was most willing to oblige. Our first time out together, we spent 2 full days shopping in order to revamp my entire wardrobe and it has made all the difference in the world. What is so great about Erica is that she takes the time to talk to you about your body type and to challenge you to try on things that you never thought of wearing - be it accessories, or undergarments, or various colors, cuts and styles. She teaches you how to mix and match outfits in order to help stretch your dollars and now when I shop alone, I often hear Erica in my head steering me clear from falling back into my old habits of making unflattering choices. I know that this may sound extremely shallow, but walking into an executive level meeting with your favorite power suit and some killer heels to match is exhilarating and puts you on a level where everyone is your equal regardless of who has the fanciest title. I guarantee that shopping with Erica will make you look and feel your best and then the rest is up to you – where will your dreams take you? Happy shopping =)
I have worked with Erica several times from shopping for a big trip to her helping me dress for an event. I could not be happier with the results! Let me start by saying how much I HATE shopping yet Erica has somehow inspired me to look forward to it, even when on my own. The best part of working with Erica is that she not only helps me choose clothes that look good on me, that I love and feel comfortable in but she helps me understand why a certain piece works for me. I have shopped with other stylists who were very able to pick out tons of pricey clothes that looked great but then next time I went shopping I was just as lost as before. Erica really explains the elements of style, what pieces are best for your shape and how to put all of it together. I will always be a t-shirt and jeans girl at heart but thanks to Erica I now look amazing for any occasion and have elevated my every day style to a level that allows me to look and feel my best.
Erica is knowledgeable, professional and personable! She helped me with gentleness and honesty to pare down my frumpy wardrobe and make sure my "keeper clothes" fit properly and were flattering to my body style. I felt so good after "doing my closet makeover"! Shopping with Erica was a blast... she just knows what will work for your body, tastes and lifestyle. She is compassionate to all our body issues... and totally can make anyone look and feel fabulous!
