"I've rarely felt comfortable shopping for clothes, knowing what to pick and also what to wear on a given day. So I would wind up wearing the same dull clothes at work as well as on nights out. It felt like a uniform and I never felt great about how I looked. 

Nicola changed all that. First we purged my closet of all the things I've had for years but never wore. We donated them or recycled them so I didn't feel bad about letting them go, and now I had an organized closet!

Shopping with her was genuinely fun. I appreciated how she went out of her way to find good values, and I wound up spending much less than I would have on my own. 

Once I had the clothes, she matched things expertly and taught me while she was doing it. She even prepared a helpful book with all the different looks that I keep in my closet as a guide. 

Did it make a difference? Well, I finally have clothes I like for a wide range of events at a cost that was reasonable. More importantly, I feel different. Just last month, I had an important presentation to give and I wore one of my new outfits. It fit beautifully and looked great, and I felt happy and confident. That feeling alone is priceless."

"Facing a career transition, I wanted to re-set how I arrived to an expanded network of professional colleagues. I knew a proper wardrobe was key to that effort; but with embarrassing honesty I did not have a clue on how to proceed. I didn't know who to trust, and could certainly not trust myself (decades of family and professional photos were proof enough).  Luckily my wife went online and discovered Nicola.  We soon met and Nicola "got" me, without prejudice around my age, build, or current clothing.  She listened, we discussed, we talked honestly of budget, she made sense of what I failed to articulate.  And best of all, she charmed my wife.  We became a team under Nicola's direction.  We ended up spending hours together.  Nicola was delightful, respectful, and persuasive.  Several weeks later, for the first time in my life, kind strangers would pause me on the street to complement my clothing.  Wow!  Confirmation that with Nicola, I had made the right choice.  Thank you!"

"Working with Nicola was life changing. I hired her because I wanted the outside to match who I truly am on the inside. I wanted to step out of my comfort zone to get a "signature" style and put all my trust in her professional opinion to do so. The results were far beyond my expectations. I knew that a new style would support my entrepreneurial career but what I didn't expect was the cascade effect it has had on my entire life.
As a result of feeling like I'm always at my best, my confidence has increased and I've been able to attract new business opportunities, women and lots of compliments. If you are looking to do something amazing with your life, hire Nicola and it will happen faster."

"Working with Nicola is fun, time-saving and totally worth it! With only a small amount of input on my end - Nicola helped me completely revamp both my professional and summertime looks. Thanks to her I feel 100% confident in what I'm wearing when I step out the door."

“I don’t just like working with Nicola, I LOVE it. She has completely upgraded my work and casual wardrobe and I feel so much better about my style and about myself now. My new wardrobe has given me a whole lot of confidence in my career and personal life and I feel great wearing my new clothes.

I also learned a lot about how to shop better and how to get rid of things that I no longer need. But most importantly the process of working with Nicola was so much fun. I loved the part where Nicola came over after we shopped and she put together all the outfits using my new clothes, the pieces that I already had and she taught me how to accessorize better.

I enjoyed the process so much that after working with her in the Fall, I hired her again for the Spring. And now that I’m pregnant I might just have to call her again because that’s a whole new style challenge!”

"I want to thank you for our compressed, but fun and productive NYC shopping adventure. When I delved into the delivery of clothes, I was very impressed with the efficient and professional packaging. In addition, the tailoring of all of the items was excellent. I'm very stoked about getting all of the new, cool threads to wear. We did real well during our shopping outing. Thanks again Nicola - all in all, a very beneficial and rewarding experience.

I look forward to stepping out in my new threads and having an encore NYC shopping adventure with you sometime in the near future."
