Annie did an awesome job -- I hate HATE shopping but, of course, like to feel good in what I am wearing. I also had had 2 babies in the previous two years, so I hadn't a clue my size or styles that looked good on my body at that point. Annie both did the hard part of shopping for me and helped me find styles that looked awesome on me. We did everything from boutiques to departments stores. Walking into Nortstrom Rack and being able to go straight to a dressing room filled with all the things I should try, now that's my kind of "shopping"! It was a pleasure working with Annie. Definitely will continue to use her help on an on-going basis.
Annie is amazing! I had such an incredible time with her as she created many new outfits out of my own clothes & shoes from my closet. She created an app with easy link to photos which I've been referring to every day for what to wear. The outfits look professional for work & she showed me ways to easily dress them up for evening. Plus she taught me creative & new ways to wear my scarfs & jewelry.
Annie is creative, smart, truly kind, and selfless. She takes time to listen to customers and help them uncover beauty within. The outfits helped me feel beautiful and confident. Not once did I feel like I was wearing somebody else's clothes. That's exactly what I wanted, to feel more beautiful in my own skin and Annie helped me achieve that. Whether you are looking to totally reinvent yourself or just a fresh new look Annie will take the time to find a wardrobe enhancement that brings out the best in you!
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!

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.”
