I had such a wonderful (and fun!) experience working with Annie to help transition my closet from pre-baby to maternity/post-baby friendly. Before Annie arrived, I felt I had a closet full of items that I had zero interest in wearing. After combing through each item in my closet (from sweaters to jewelry to camisoles), Annie opened my mind to the number of go-to and stylish outfits that could be created from the items I owned. The best part - she made me regain complete confidence in the items I owned and made me realize that getting dressed every day could feel fun again. She is so easy to talk to and an absolute joy. She adapts her suggestions based on your lifestyle and preferences. I definitely suggest Annie's services to anyone who wants to refresh their relationship with the clothes they own or gain a new perspective on the type of style that works for them.
I received the looks as well as the closet suggestions and I just love them all. I was showing my mother in law last night and we both agree they are such great options that fit my personality....thank you again!!!
I hired Annie as part of my "turning 40" present to myself. She is a lovely, energetic woman with an amazing eye for color and texture. After one short meeting, she was able to really understand my style and how to elevate my clothing without making me feel like I was dressing up in someone else's clothing. I enjoyed every minute of our time together and getting dressed is more fun and I feel more myself. Thank you, Annie!
I am very happy with my looks. I blended into the office style seamlessly from day one: not too formal, not too casual! Just perfect! My next step is to do shopping with you at some point.
I really enjoyed working with you. You have such a great eye to capture a look, it's a gift!
Oh my gosh, you are amazing and I loved every minute working with you! You have changed my life!!!
I was at a friend's wedding this weekend and one of her friends caught me and said: "You're so stylish!" (ALL the credit to you, Annie and your amazing work to get someone like me to get a compliment like that!)
"I wore a complete outfit you made today with all the big jewelry (which I had never done before). It feels great! I walk differently and I talk differently in this.
Annie is a dream to work with! Her energy and enthusiasm makes shopping and going through your current wardrobe easy for those of us who are "shopping challenged"! She helped me to see the pieces I have in my closet in a new light, paired things I never would have thought of, accessorized my outfits to make them complete, and helped me fill in with a few new things to give me a little spark and daring!!!
We, my daughter & I, invited Annie to come to Dubuque, IA to consult with a group of us and I am as simple as it gets when it comes to style. Annie presented a wonderful style show social at my home for about 15 participants. It was very informative, entertaining, and relaxed. Everyone there walked away with something. She also met with a number of us, one on one to go through our closets. I was a bit nervous as to what I was going to have to buy. The bottom line was - very little. She pulled together some AWESOME combinations of items I already had and they looked like brand new clothes. I feel really comfortable and relaxed with her recommendations because she took the time to get to know ME and we went from there. Way to go, Annie!
I met Anne when I randomly walked into a J. Crew store looking for a jacket for work. She charmed me immediately with her personality and impressed me with her skills as a stylist. I worked with Anne for about a year and she never ceases to amaze me with her understanding of my needs. Be it help for work, an evening out or just my wardrobe in general, Anne is amazing. She gets me and my needs. Highly recommended!
We first met when Ann helped me style my wedding. From my dress and accessories to all of the wedding party, she brought her style and sunny outlook to everything she does. From there, she helped me go through my closet and make new outfits out of things I hadn't worn in years. So glad she was recommended to me. Working with her was a true pleasure!
Anne met with my tween daughter to help her coordinate and recommend outfits that would be age-appropriate and flattering for a girl her age and size. She was instantly able to group articles of clothing and accessories that we would have never thought of on our own that looked super trendy. She came up with so many cute outfits using the clothes and shoes and accessories that we already had in her closet. Anne sent us digital pictures of the outfits right away and then also mailed us hard copies of the looks as well. Anne did such a nice job of making my timid daughter feel completely at ease. Anne has the sweetest personality along with the most amazing sense of style. I would definitely recommend her service!
Annie is the epitome of class, grace and elegance, which she infuses into every outfit she styles for you. I've been working with Annie for a while, and she brings her incredible sense of style into your closet as she put together the most amazing combinations from pieces you already own. Each session is an event I truly look forward to because it's fun and I learn so much about my style preferences, especially what works and what doesn't work. Annie is a true joy to work with. I have highly recommended her to all my friends and passionately recommend her to anyone who is looking to turn their closets into a fashion house.

Want More Deets About Me?
I live in Chicago with my husband, son, and daughter! I was raised in the country in a tiny farm town in Illinois. I fully embrace my city life (& life altogether). With all of my adventures and places I’ve lived, I have versatility as a stylist with a genuine love of the little things.
“In first grade, every day after school, I would trot myself from school to my Great Grandmother Breed’s house. She would welcome me with a huge hug and the newest edition of Vogue, W, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Town and Country, or InStyle. If we had already perused the current months, we would rethink older ones, always discovering a new color combination or shoe/pant pairing. She would tell me all about what’s “in,” and why; and even let me wear her favorite clip-on earrings and necklaces as I listened intently.
Grandma Breed had a great eye for fashion and studied it carefully. I loved being her star pupil. She was a hip lady and ahead of her time in many ways. She instilled a sense of color and design in me as a young girl. Today, I still carry her vibrant spirit and passion for the arts from our after-school days into my adult life—and my career. Her passionate admiration for beauty, impeccable sense of fashion and love for thoughtful discourse on latest trends made me the stylist I am today.”
