What sets your business apart from your competition?
I believe my drive to to help people sets my business apart. I want people to know that they don't have to be a celebrity or rich to look like a million bucks. I also want my clients to feel a boost in their confidence, because looking and feeling good leads to great things. I focus on making clients feel as comfortable as possible while working with any budget and doing my best to find them the best deals.
What was the inspiration for starting this business?
I am originally from a larger city where fashion and style is a norm. When moving to this area, I realized there is almost nowhere a person can go for fashion advice. I want to reach out to this community, promote fashion, and help people look their best. At the same time, I want to convey that this isn't a luxury; it can be affordable and fun.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer?
The best reaction was when a client cried tears of joy and said for the first time in her life she felt beautiful and attractive. I want all my customers to feel that way, and I actually believe that everyone can feel that way with just a little fashion guidance.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
I get to meet people with all different styles. It's a learning experience for me, as well as them, because we go through a kind of journey together.
