“I hired Scarlett because I wanted to figure out a style (and associated clothing) that would work for me – casual yet professional. She met or exceeded my expectations by having a ton of options ready to go when I arrived, tirelessly chasing down different sizes, and frankly nailing combinations that would work for me right from the get-go. My favorite part was how effortless the whole process was – and how good and comfortable I feel in the resulting outfits. I call Scarlett an absolute expert in her field – and overall a miracle worker!”
“Scarlett is my SECRET WEAPON for looking and feeling my best! When we work together, I wind up with cool new outfits that combine what I already own with a few key new pieces. We never spend a ton of money, yet I look like I have an enormous wardrobe. Scarlett has a knack for knowing what’s right for me & my body and she’s taught me so much. When I shop for myself now, I’m able to easily choose the right items. And if I have a question, she’s just a text away. I am a lifelong client!”
“Thank you so much for your help today. I had fun working with you and look forward to my ‘New Look’.. plus my closet is so roomy now. 🙂
Thanks for taking so much time with me and for being so patient. Someone is going to be very lucky when I take the rejects out of my house!
After shopping with you, I am enjoying my new wardrobe and look forward to using your suggestions as I go along.”
“I didn’t think I needed a style consultant, because I work with animals. How dressed up can I get? But after working with Scarlett, I learned what works for me and what doesn’t, and how to boost my style just that little bit so I can work with the dogs and cats AND still look polished and professional. I also have the confidence now to choose clothing without too much hemming and hawing, since I know my best colors, necklines, and styles. Now, I always have something in my closet that’s right for the occasion, that looks great on me, and that gives me confidence. Thank you, Scarlett!”
“I was tired of looking in my closet and seeing clothes that I had spent money on but would never wear. I hate to think about how much money I have wasted buying clothes only to donate them never worn.
In the past I thought that if I buy more expensive, but fewer clothes, I would have more I’d like to wear. But really, regardless of spending $5 or $100 on something, it still looked lousy on me so I didn’t wear it. Cheap versus expensive was not the issue; it was not knowing what worked for me.
Hiring Scarlett, as my personal Image Curator, I love saying that, gave me the guidance to know what to wear, buy, where to find it, and she is amazing at finding deals on quality items!
I am continuing to learn as I try more things and see ‘wow, I really see what she means, this style does NOT work on me!’
The truth is, that I feel better when I am wearing my ‘Scarlett’ outfits.”
“Today was so productive AND you made it fun too! Thank you! Now I look forward to getting dressed! Before meeting with you, I second guessed what colors and styles were most flattering on me. Now I just consult my color chart and the pictures you took and I’m dressed in a flash.”
I recently attended Scarlett’s Styling Workshop Event, and found it to be life changing. I am now armed with knowledge; like what colors to choose for me, what’s in style, where to shop, how to accentuate my best features and how to choose a few quality pieces to add to my wardrobe. I went home and was able to clean out my closets. I love how Scarlett believes that you can still be comfortable and look good. THANK YOU SCARLETT!
“Although Scarlett came extremely highly recommended and I knew what to expect when working with her, I was still so very surprised and delighted by how truly wonderful the process really was — and Scarlett is. Clearing out my closet was uplifting – I never realized how little of what was in there that I actually wore, or would even want to wear! Seeing what new outfits could be made from the remaining clothes was very enlightening. But the icing on the cake was the shopping experience! Words can’t really describe how wonderful it was. Truly is an experience that every woman should have—and ideally have more than once! And I am so tickled at the compliments I’ve been getting at my new outfits and how amazing they make me look and feel! Without a doubt, I can definitely say I’ve stopped stressing about dressing!!”
“Working with Scarlett is a revelation! As I transitioned from a full time Corporate gig into my Entrepreneurial pursuits, it became more important than ever to not only look good and feel good in my clothes during the work week, but every day of the week! We don’t just create our future as Entrepreneurs on specific days – we create our future every day of the week. The revelation is that we need to look and feel our best every single day – no more leaving my best self at the office! Want to know the real secret? I should have always been bringing my best self with me but somehow I left that best self hanging in the closet with those business clothes.
Now, with the help of Scarlett to find my happy place with the right image and an amazing closet redo, I am comfortable and confident in my clothes every day – even when I am out shopping with the kids. Scarlett works with you to make you feel good inside and look good outside. True successful living really does come from a balance of both. You have to invite Scarlett into your life and see for yourself the amazing transformation that she creates!”
“Thank you Scarlett for helping me let go of the stress of dressing. It was very interesting learning that I am a summer palette of muted colors as well as the best neckline for the shape of my face. Who knew that gold jewelry is the preferred metal for my skin, hair and eyes? It was fun trying various outfits as we went through the closet of clothes, shoes, scarves and jewelry! Thanks for taking pictures cause I would NEVER remember. Wow, by the end of our time together I knew what would work or not work and I love that you recommended some missing items in my closet You really helped me gain control. Felt GREAT getting rid of the things I had no idea what to do with or wear with. Most of all, thank you for the CONFIDENCE that you instilled. Dressing will be much more fun!”
“I don’t like clothes shopping, I probably never will. But, I like to look nice and wear flattering clothing.
Shopping with you was a great experience. I now have a real wardrobe with many options.
You gave me an honest assessment of the clothes I tried on and made sure they all fit properly on my far-less-than-perfect figure.I am looking forward to wearing the clothes you found for me.”
“I was fortunate to take advantage of Scarlett’s expertise for a review of my current wardrobe and shopping with her. The results were beyond my expectation. She helped me to look and think about my clothes differently than I had before. Shopping with her not only helped me pick out some great new pieces, she taught me to look at things for myself I would not have otherwise have looked at. If you need to dress for work, or just want to feel better about the way you look, she is well worth the investment! Even more importantly she made the process very enjoyable.”
“Working with Scarlett was fun – I will admit I was worried at first. Would she shudder at the size (tiny) of my closet? Would she toss all my stuff out like on the TV shows? Would I need to start from scratch and spend tons of $? No to all! She provided a fresh look at what was in my wardrobe, showed me how to make the best use of what I had, told me what to get rid of (and why!) and gave suggestions on what I needed to add. In addition she reorganized things so they were easier to find. Looking forward to trying out some new looks. Run to the phone and call her today!”
“I had a great time and was very impressed w/all the outfits you created. I’m so excited to see all the color you added to my existing wardrobe and love all the combinations you came up with. I can’t tell you how much you changed my outlook on clothing. I’m actually looking forward to wearing all the nice things you picked out and am no longer dreading going into my closet! You have no idea the stress I used to feel when it came to deciding what I was going to wear…Thanks so much for everything, Scarlett.”
“I recently had the pleasure working with Scarlett De Bease. Let me retract that, I had a lot of fun spending time with Scarlett recently, as we created comfortable outfits for an upcoming business trip. Her keen eye and direct approach on what looked ideal on me, made me feel ultra confident. if you need help with the items in your closet, then invite Scarlett over, you’ll be glad you did!!”
Scarlett is an absolute delight and extrordinarily gifted. She has changed my life. I would never have believed that I had so many outfits in my closet, that Scarlett could reinvent with majestic flair.
She used many of my fun accessories and jewelry to create outfits that I love and didn’t even know were possible.
I had a ball with Scarlett in my closet and I feel on top of the moon!
“Before I worked with Scarlett I had a closet full of clothes and no idea how to put them together. After just a few hours of working with me in my home, my closet was organized, all the clothes that didn’t work were gone and I had lots of outfits pulled together, that make me feel great when I walk out the door. She went though my bags, my jewelry and without me buying one new thing I feel, based on all the compliments I get, like a million bucks.”
“Confession – I was very nervous to have wardrobe stylist Scarlett come and see my closet. I worried for absolutely nothing because she understood how it got to where it was and was there to help me make my wardrobe easy and manageable. With her great sense of style and years of experience, she told me the colors and looks I should keep and put together fun, new outfits. And with her expertise, I had one pile of clothes and shoes to be consigned and another of things to just say goodbye to. By the time she left, I actually felt mentally lighter and less stressed knowing I could open my closet door and would find an entire wardrobe of clothes that I actually liked…and they were there all along!”
“So one of my secret fantasies has always been to be on a show like What Not to Wear and get a full makeover and a new wardrobe. Thanks to Scarlett DeBease for helping me make my version of that fantasy come true. Scarlett came to my home and spent an amazing afternoon going through my entire closet and combining the clothes I already owned into so many beautiful outfits. When I had professional photos taken, I not only knew exactly what to wear, but also felt confident and beautiful”
“Scarlett is a brilliant Image Stylist. She understands not only what looks good on her clients but how those clothes interact with daily life and can be an extension of brand. It was so incredible to arrive at my dressing room and find it fully loaded. I will never EVER look through racks of clothes again. What she saved me in knowing where to find the great sales (and when to pay full price) covered her fee alone. Even if that wasn’t the case she would be worth every penny. I highly recommend Scarlett!”
“Scarlett has provided me with a completely new vision for how I dress. After working with her remotely, I was armed with the knowledge I needed to let go of clothes and accessories that didn’t serve (or flatter) me any longer. I have transformed from the person who walks out of stores empty handed or worse with the wrong silhouettes and colors purchased, into someone who has a clear vision for what works and what I need to pull together outfits. Scarlett is a joy to work with and her recommendations were spot on.”
“I’m the first one to tell people, when they compliment me on how I look, that I have a secret weapon: Wardrobe Stylist Scarlett Debease. I’ve worked with Scarlett for years now and recommend her heartily to family, friends and colleagues.
She not only shops with me for beautiful pieces to add to my wardrobe, but she also comes to my home and coordinates the new purchases with the rest of my wardrobe, then photographs the outfits to create my own personal look-book. I NEVER have to think, “What will I wear today?” I simply consult my look-book and get dressed. I know I’ve saved time and money using Scarlett’s invaluable service.” Leading Remarkable Women To Uncommon Success.”
“Working with Scarlett to “up” my wardrobe was easy, fun and educational. I am someone whose wardrobe consists of three colors; black, white and grey. Scarlett opened my eyes to BLUES!. She worked with the clothes in my closet and put things together that look great. Now when I dress for work, or pack for a business trip, or plan my outfit for a social event I have great options to choose from. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”
“Scarlett helps to take the pain out of shopping! She prepares a dressing room full of clothes that fit your style, size and budget – and you confidently walk out with outfits that fit and feel good.” Keynote Speaker, Presentation Skills Coach, Communication Skills Trainer”
“Thank you so much! I had a great time on Saturday – you actually made shopping fun! I loved how you had the clothes already picked out and in the dressing room for me to try on. And if something didn’t fit, you scurried out to get another size or something similar to try on. It was great to shop with someone who has a sense of style and can see if a piece of clothing looks good or me or not. You also got me to try styles and colors I wouldn’t have picked on my own.”
“Scarlett completely transformed how I feel about getting dressed to go out of the house. Instead of dreading figuring out what to wear, I look forward to choosing what I’ll put on. Using the clothes I already owned along with those bought when shopping with Scarlett, I feel more confident and finally look “put together” thanks to her expert advice.
I feel so great walking into my closet because of all the choices available to me. It has been life-changing. I am also getting many compliments on how I look from friends and family! Even more important, I feel better about myself–more confident– because of how I am dressing. All thanks to you!” holistic health coach”
“I yearned to look as good on the outside as I felt on the inside but lacked the know how to get there.I scrolled through Scarlett’s website saying YES; this woman knows my pain!
I DO stress about dressing. I DO waste time and money accumulating clothes which don’t flatter me.
We arranged a shopping date and when I arrived at the store dressing room, Scarlett had culled an entire wardrobe for me based on a questionnaire and some photos I had sent her. 99% of the items (slacks, tops, sweaters, boots, hats, jewelry,coats) suited me to a tee; all fit well and enhanced my coloring. My new look elicited compliments from every one of the gals. I meet with on Friday night.
THANK YOU Scarlett for you expertise in navigating the very stressful, overwhelming world of style, brands and products.”
“Oh my goodness. That was fun. I feel like I just lost 20 pounds. It’s like I was given permission to let go of past things that just didn’t work. Past ideas and even goals that literally just don’t fit me anymore. Thank you so much for your help. So much I never knew or even thought about!!!”
“Scarlett made it easy for me to downsize and eliminate clothes that were no longer in style, doing so in a fun, relaxed manner. Next she put together outfits complete with scarves and accessories giving me lots of options. I enjoyed our time together and the way Scarlett transformed my wardrobe showing me many choices of what to wear and how to feel good about myself.”
“Scarlett has brightened my world. And I mean that literally. My closet before Scarlett, was filled with basic black. Interesting pieces, but pretty much all black. With Scarlett’s finely tuned editing, and her encouraging coaching, I’ve integrated color into my everyday dressing. The result is that I look and feel much lighter (maybe even a bit younger!) and the color makeover is way more in tune with my personality than the black uniform was. Scarlett made this process fun and I look forward to seeing her again for a seasonal tune-up.”
“For eight years, I worked as a freelancer, and dressed either for at-home comfort or for events. Now I was embarking on a corporate job that required a new wardrobe. Or so I thought. Scarlett put together my existing separates into creative, stylish looks; she helped me donate the pieces and suits that were a là mode when I last worked in an office, and identified colors, looks and pieces to fit my figure and fill in the gaps.” V-P and Publisher, Knopf Books for Young Readers”
“Working with Scarlett is a delight. I have had help from personal stylists before, but Scarlett brings a wider perspective to everything she does. For one thing, she is brand and store agnostic and is able to find the best styles no matter what the source for all different body types and professional situations. I travel a lot for business; Scarlett’s help will carry me far — and light — as I hop time zones and climates. What’s more, she has helped me find a new and distinctive look that could be said to be more appropriate as my formerly ‘hour-glass’ shape which has morphed into more of an ‘apple’ as I age — ‘It happens”, says Scarlett. Every professional woman should have Scarlett de Bease in her ”village’. Time with Scarlett is definitely time well spent.” President, Outlines Venture Group”
“I was somewhat nervous about inviting Scarlett into my closet but quickly realized she would be a most welcome guest. She spent four solid hours working incredibly hard sorting things, making helpful comments and suggestions, and helping to organize as she rehung the items that survived the cut. She helped me make new outfits without me having to buy a thing, but even more helpful was the feeling that she was sitting on my shoulder when I shopped after her visit. I could hear her saying things like “Stay in the Petite Department,” “Don’t worry about the size, but rather the fit,” and “Push up those sleeves!” She is very generous with her time in even offering follow-up comments. I consider her visit a great investment in my wardrobe!”
“With some exciting changes in my career and life, I was ready to simplify my wardrobe and create a fresh look. Scarlett helped me decide what to keep and what to toss, how to create great outfits by putting my current clothes together in new ways and what to shop for to round out my wardrobe. Working with Scarlett was such fun! My closet is now very organized with clothes that fit well and flatter.”
“I want other women to experience Scarlett’s magic. She is AMAZING!! I can’t believe I waited this long to find someone like her. I don’t like shopping, and SHE DOES and she has the best eye. Before working with her, I was in old, tired, out of date wear. Now I look and feel terrific. Somehow she finds the PERFECT clothes at an INCREDIBLE price. I can’t wait to have her line up my fall fashions. Thanks Scarlett! Everyone’s raving about my look now!”
“For the past 13 years, I have been a stay at home mom & personal trainer. My closet was full of workout gear & two-sizes-too-small designer clothes from the ’90s.A few weeks ago, I accepted a job at a local arts organization. Realizing how dire my clothing situation was, I immediately called Scarlett whom I had met a few years prior. Scarlett’s sophisticated style and beauty had left an impression on me! Scarlett explained the two phased process: first, she would come to my house and put together outfits from the clothes in my closet; second, we would go shopping to fill in the blanks.When I told her I had NOTHING to wear, I was not kidding. Phase one resulted in a very large pile of clothes to donate because, well, they were all too small and hadn’t been worn in over a decade! Scarlett did a fabulous job spinning straw into gold, but the reality was that I needed everything: socks, shoes, boots, jeans, dress pants, sweaters & shirts!.I have never been a “shopper”. I have always had body image issues and so the thought of standing in front of a department store mirror with another person in the room picking out my clothes for me was more than I could handle. I emailed Scarlett to say I couldn’t go through with the second phase.Scarlett understood the depths of my anxiety and her compassion was evident. I finally agreed to meet her although my anxiety level was at an all time high. I wanted to flee the dressing room; I tried every excuse to get out of there. Scarlett calmly replied, “You are going to try on everything first.” And I did!A few hours later, I left the department store with an entire new wardrobe! By the time I left, my anxiety was gone; I was happy & relaxed.The following day, I went shopping on my own to look for a few additional items and the experience was radically different from anything I had ever known. I entered stores with confidence, knowing exactly what I was looking for and able to try on clothing without feeling anxious.
Today was my first day at work; the only sartorial issue I had was deciding which of my many beautiful garments to wear! My morning was 100% stress free! I even took a selfie to email Scarlett so that she could see how fabulous I looked and felt!”
“Thank you for your help. My nervousness was totally unnecessary, and you really made it fun! I am enjoying my less cluttered closet and I’ve raved to several friends about you and your service!”
“I loved working with Scarlett in my closet! It was fun and enlightening. Scarlett spotted some things that I have never worn and showed me how great they look when matched with the right accessories. She made choices that would never occur to me, and they were great! She showed which colors and cuts look best on me and suggested a few items needed to fill the gaps in my wardrobe. She employs a “less is more” strategy, so you will end up paring down rather than expanding what you own. If you’re looking for a way to get a new wardrobe by reassessing what you already own with a fresh, stylish eye, invite Scarlett into your closet.You will be very pleased.”
“Scarlett, Ever since my consultation with you, I have rolled up my sleeves and, most important, purchased a blouse, a suit jacket and a sweater in TEAL my new found color. I have gotten so many compliments on these clothing items and how they make my blue eyes look bluer. Congratulations on completing your book. Let me know when it is available so that I can purchase a copy.”
“Need a new wardrobe? “I had an upcoming conference with NO time nor desire to shop for a new wardrobe. I called Scarlett after reading her blog for many months and she saved the day. She came, spent a few hours with me going through my closet and helped me create a series of perfect outfits. The best part, at the conference a colleague complimented me and told me what I was wearing was a great look. Funny thing was I had everything in my closet all along but had never added the boots, scarf and earrings”
“Scarlett has been with me through thick and thin…literally! After slowly gaining a substantial amount of weight I felt old and dumpy, that is when my sister suggested a consultation with Scarlett. With Scarlett’s help I learned to dress in a way that made me feel confident – even at my largest size. And when I began to lose weight Scarlett was there too, not only advising me on what would flatter my changing shape – but her advice on how to tailor clothes was invaluable. With Scarlett’s help I was able to get more mileage out of beautiful pieces that were now too large. Thank you, Scarlett, for helping me feel my best, no matter what my size!”
“I ordered the dress we talked about; it is a knock out! I would never have chosen that for myself, and I think it’s the one I’ll wear to both the wedding and the ceremony for my friend the following week. Can’t believe it only cost $60!.I greatly appreciated your keen and objective eye to help me know what might look good on me, and I found your knowledge of the stores merchandise invaluable. I just don’t have the time or patience to shop, and you knew exactly what to suggest at three or four stores I like.I will happily recommend you to my friends and I’d love to delegate my shopping entirely to you!” Boston, Ma.”
“Scarlett has a true talent for pulling disparate items of clothing, shoes and accessories from your closet and turning them into amazing new outfits! She is so professional, warm and respectful. If you have fallen into the trap of wearing the same four outfits over and over again then it’s time to hire Scarlett. I feel as if I have a new business wardrobe, something I really needed!”
“I admire you, I respect you, and I am so thankful for you! You entered my life at just the right time. I’ve always said, “In my next life, I want someone to pack for me when I go on a trip.” Scarlett came to my apartment and not only weeded out my closet of clothes that should have been donated years ago, but she also pulled together outfits – not too many and not too few — for an upcoming conference. Most of all, we laughed and had a lot of fun in the process. She has the “eye” and talent. I can’t thank her enough.”
“As someone who spends all of her time at medical meetings focusing on the presentations and not on what the presenters were wearing, I knew that I needed to update but felt at a loss for how to go about it. I want simplicity, sophistication and a style I feel comfortable with. Talking on the phone with Scarlett was wonderful. We “shopped” together virtually and could look at items together while physically across the country from each other. It was a wonderful, non-threatening and efficient way to re-create my style and not get frustrated. Prior to my actual consultation, I really enjoyed dissecting Scarlett’s blog and acting on many of her tips as well. I highly recommend Scarlett and look forward to working with her in the future!”
“Hi Scarlett, I just finished putting all of my new clothes away. The grand total for today is: 3 pairs of pants, 1 casual dress, 1 formal dress, 22 shirts and 3 pairs of shoes. I’d call that a successful day! Perhaps the most exciting part of the day for me was as I was leaving the store. I walked past a shirt that caught my eye. My first reaction was that stinks it’s not in “my” size, meaning the women’s department. Then I actually paused and thought, no if it looks good on me I can do this shirt. I was too tired to go back to the fitting room and had too many packages, but that was an entirely new thought process for me. And next week sometime I will go back and try that shirt on! So, thank you for your expertise and helping to educate me!”
“Scarlett, I have to thank you for making it so easy to pack for my conference. You showed me exactly what I should wear for each day from my head to my toes, and not only did I get lots of compliments, I was comfortable too! The best was how you created so many outfits using what I already had, and talked me out of going shopping for more clothes. Before I worked with you, I bought random pieces of clothing and would go thru my closet every day, trying hard to figure out what to wear. Now my closet is filled with clothes from our shopping trip, that easily coordinate with each other. Picking out what to wear is now a joy thanks to you!”
My favorite outcome from when we work together is having the confidence that I don’t have to think twice regarding what to wear. Knowing what will work and look good is a win-win! Thank you!
“I spent a delicious half day shopping – in my own closet! – with Scarlet DeBease. She is a magician, transforming my well-known but not always well-worn clothes into amazing new outfits. She’s delightful to work with, clever, and practical. I highly recommend the therapeutic experience! It will give you a new ” look” on life. So, I love thumbing through my outfits. Just so much fun thinking about what I’m going to wear that day. Have worn lots of them, and used your playful attitude to mix and match as well. The jacket I have that has leather trim has become a new favorite, after seeing how great it looks on me, with your additions to it.” Executive Director Friends of the Public Garden”
“I had a ball going through my closet with you and our color consult was helpful and revealing. I loved your advice about necklines, waist lines, jewelery, and Colors to wear near my face. Now, I am happy to have my eyes pop instead of a double chin or a padded hip.It fascinated me to discover why some perfectly lovely items do not leave me feeling as confident as I thought they should. I didn’t think it likely but you found outfits that I would not have put together and you re-created 20 outfits from what I already owned. I can’t wait to pack for my upcoming trip. I am a Scarlett Image convert.”
“Thank you Scarlett – so much great advice – my closets are so, so much easier to navigate – You made editing easy and possible – the idea of getting dressed without hassle and wasted time and money is just thrilling – so many better things to do. I am thrilled with “Less is More.”
“I just wanted to thank you for helping me complete my life ‘transformation’. Meeting you and working with you has been extraordinary and I am extremely grateful!After a divorce, and then working at a new and hugely stressful full time nursing management job, caring for my “special” son, and my daughter’s wedding… I began the journey to improve my health.I lost 40 pounds, and 1 1/2 years later left my job to pursue my fabulous new health coaching business. All that is great and I can hardly believe how fortunate I have been to have this opportunity.My walk in closet, however, was like a scary haunted house!I decided that YOU would be my birthday gift to myself… BEST GIFT EVER!!You came to my house for hours and organized my closet, while I tried on loads and loads of clothes! You helped me donate 4 HUGE (GASP!) bags of clothes and accessories, and then created amazing outfits with what was left. Life changing right there!
…. and then the best part! A shopping spree at Nordstroms (birthday gift continues…). You had wonderful things hanging and waiting for me. You helped me choose the most flattering clothes for my new size, my coloring, and all areas of my life..I now have a fabulous, neat, organized closet, thanks to you and your GUIDE, and I am now able to choose outfits in less than 2 minutes (including accessories!).Scarlett, you are amazing and I am grateful that we met, and that now I feel like my transformation is complete.”
“Scarlett’s insight & knowledge of color choices, jewelry shapes and neckline styles has helped me create a successful system for my wardrobe. Her approachability & understanding of my concerns was key for my choosing her to be my stylist. From conference rooms & classes to client consultations, I now have more confidence & “curb appeal!” Thank you Scarlett!”
“Thank you so much for the fabulous wardrobe session. I had so much fun working with you to review my closet collection and look at colors and outfits in a whole new light! I am amazed at how many outfits I have just waiting for me to wear! Can’t wait for our upcoming shopping day.” Ashe Organizing Solutions, Ltd”
“I’ve been style-challenged pretty much most of my life. It had become a way of life…stressing over what to wear, deciding on something, and most times feeling unattractive, unsexy, and worst of all, not feeling myself. On one of those days I was waiting in an audition room, feeling badly about what I was wearing (which of course affected my posture, my voice, my mood, my confidence!). It was that familiar anxiety creeping up again, putting negative thoughts about myself in my mind, and I had enough! I decided that day I didn’t want to feel like this anymore. I took an honest evaluation of my personal and business life, and realise that many times I fell short of booking a job or reaching out to increase my network of friends because I didn’t feel great about myself. One big reason was (and I sometimes marvel at how much this has already changed for me!) I didn’t like the way I looked, which snowballed into wilting my energy, confidence, and true personality. I called Scarlett and asked her to help me to literally step into the strong, confident, sexy woman I know I am at the core but who isn’t physically present when I look in the mirror.Scarlett has an amazing ability to get to know you quickly and choose looks that accentuate your unique and best qualities. I know that 2013 is going to be the best year ever for many blessed reasons. My intention is to be the best person I can be, and to share the best of me in this world in what I do and who I am. I’m at my best when I feel great, and wardrobe stylist Scarlett has transformed an aspect of me that needed a boost. I feel more ready than ever to get out there and do it! Thank you, Scarlett! You are a style rock star!”
“The best thing I got out of working with you was learning the colors that worked best for me and those that didn’t. I’ve never gone back to colors that don’t work. Another thing is that now I have a very good sense of what styles work best on me, so I don’t buy clothes that are too small, not flattering, etc. So as a result, I feel pretty competent in doing my own shopping and keeping my wardrobe up to date. I will always turn to you first, whether for a special occasion outfit, or a wardrobe refresh when I need it.”
“The outfits you helped me buy last week were a big hit at the marketing conference. In fact I had someone tell me that they could tell I was organized just by the way I was dressed. Then, At the recent NAPO conference I did a power shopping spree the day before I left on the trip at Macy’s in town…thanks for teaching me to shop by color. It allowed me to quickly pick out clothes to try on and to not waste my time on stuff that would just not work. I picked out all the outfits I needed for a 4 day conference in about 2 hours. Thank you for your help.”
“Wardrobe Stylist Scarlett is a God send. I was wearing the same outfits repeatedly and couldn’t decide how to dress better. Scarlett came to my house and in one session efficiently figured out the color and style that looked best on me. Than she went to my closet and created coordinated outfits including shoes and jewelery and photographed everything so I have a personal file of outfits I can wear. The wardrobe stylist transformation has been lasting and significant. I have a new sense of myself.” Scarsdale NY, Spiritual Life Coach/Grief Counselor”
“Scarlett’s warmth and kindness immediately put me at ease as soon as she stepped in the door. She came to help me put together an outfit for the most important moment of my career, giving my first TEDx talk! I was working through my stage fright, and I knew that if I looked great on stage, I would feel much more confident on the big day.Scarlett helped me choose the right colors for my skin and hair, and ended up not only choosing a fabulous outfit for the TEDx talk, she also put together many more outfits for my professional life. I would never have thought of combining that blouse with that jacket and skirt. It was like getting five new outfits without spending a penny on clothes.I love Scarlett so much, I have hosted her on a webinar and my radio show, so she can reach my clients who are dating again after divorce or loss. Helping women feel better about the bodies they have and knowing what to wear. Priceless!”
“I highly recommend hiring Scarlett! She helped me purge the out-of-date and unattractive clothes from my closet, showed me new ways to wear my existing clothes & accessories to highlight my face and figure, and emailed me almost 50 pictures that evening of all of the outfits she put together. In addition, Scarlett made a list of the items I needed to purchase and can be hired to shop with me to make sure I make the best decisions. No more wasting time and money buying the wrong clothing items. She was a pleasure to work with and I had a great time in the process.”
“What a great decision I made to begin working with Scarlett on updating my wardrobe! My clothing pieces were very random, sometimes dated, and not always fitting me well. For the first appointment, Scarlett came to my home and performed a color analysis to determine what color palette would be best with my hair and skin tone. Next we went through all of my clothes, shoes, and outerwear, and decided what to keep, donate, and toss. Scarlett took many notes and some photos, so she would know what I would need to purchase on our shopping trip. The next session was spent shopping and trying on new pieces to fill in my wardrobe. The saleswoman that Scarlett works with at Nordstrom made this a pleasure for both of us. Before working with wardrobe stylist Scarlett, my appearance was somewhat boring and dull. Now my closet is filled with a colorful selection of professional, polished, well fitting, and age appropriate clothing. The value I received from her services is immeasurable because of the confidence and happiness that I have now, when I get dressed in the morning!”
“Scarlett came to my house and edited and organized my clothes and then we went shopping. It really changed my life. She took the stress out of dressing for me. I can get ready for a meeting in 10 minutes now without thinking. I feel better about myself and more confident meeting with clients. In addition, I spend half as much money on clothing. We now go once a year, to fill in the gaps with some basic pieces or just to keep up with the fashion. Kind of like a tune up. I don’t feel the need to shop at all other times. I keep my closet clean and have half the clothes I used to but I wear all of them now.”
“You sell confidence – it is the result of working with you. I felt very confident today that I looked good. While how you look is not everything it is a huge part of what we say to the people we meet about who we are, what we do and how we feel about ourselves….You take the guess work out of that.”
“Wardrobe stylist Scarlett De Bease is amazing! I had 3 major speaking gigs in the past week, a closet that was a complete mess with nearly nothing in it of use, and almost no jewelry! My only saving grace was my shoe collection! Scarlett saved the day! I had 3 different perfect outfits, one for each event ready to go after just 2 hours with her and my mess of a closet. We haven’t even been shopping yet. I can’t sing her praises enough. Plus, my room feels so clean and organized now. It’s so simple to get dressed every morning. If you need any wardrobe help, Scarlett is the best!”
“Years ago, after making the physical transition from corporate cubicle dweller to mompreneur, I asked Scarlett to help me transition my wardrobe to match my new lifestyle. I’ve never run out of things to wear or stood in front of my closet puzzled about choosing what to wear. Now that I’ve returned to corporate America and some of my body parts are in different places than they were a few years ago, Scarlett once again worked her magic and transformed my closet with ease and style. I look forward to getting ready for work (and play!) and now spend only seconds choosing what to wear. I easily now know what will be the perfect outfit to wear, and she worked within MY budget! Thanks Scarlett!”
“Scarlett De Bease’s success as an Image Consultant derives not only from her sense of fashion aesthetics, but from her genuine passion and enthusiasm for her clients as people, and for helping them achieve inner and outer confidence in the image they project through how they look. She has the rare ability to perceive not only one’s personal preferences and tastes, but also their limitations (be it budget, time or interest), and pull together a wardrobe plan that functions seamlessly within their lives. Before I met Scarlett, I had accumulated an excess of clothes that didn’t fit or that I just didn’t feel good in. Scarlett helped me transform my closet into a well organized resource of casual and business outfits that easily and successfully meet my everyday needs. Most importantly though, Scarlett is a delightful person who makes you feel comfortable the minute she walks in the room. Her professional manner and exquisite sense of style, combined with her kind, spirited and enthusiastic approach to helping you be the best you can be, make working with Scarlett a true pleasure.”
“Wardrobe Stylist Scarlett, is a pleasure to work with. She’s professional, knowledgeable, and fun! I loved playing dress-up with her guidance. She arrived with a bag of tricks, ready to work in my closet to prune, create, tweak, and suggest wardrobe additions. By the time she left, I had a small pile of clothes to donate, an understanding of my most flattering styles, many outfit options, and a shopping list for wardrobe enhancements. She followed-up by emailing the photos she took of all the outfits we had created (accessories and all), which will make getting dressed and packing for trips much simpler. Don’t even question whether or not to hire her. Just do it! Wardrobe Stylist Scarlett has a great eye, is creative, understands clothing and different body types, and is a really fun to work with. You will come away with clarity and confidence.”
“I am SOOOO proud of you and your wonderful wardrobe styling work improving the lives of women by helping us see the beauty beyond the flaws and the possibilities in our existing wardrobes! It is an extraordinary gift to work with a diverse array of women’s natural styles. It’s easy to make a woman look great by throwing money at her wardrobe, but a harder and thanks to you, fun challenge to mix it up with the garments we already own adding just a couple of new pieces to pull it all together.I love working with you and am so happy to see you flourishing.”
“Scarlett is attentive, intuitive, and an excellent resource to work with when it comes to re-doing your wardrobe. She takes the time to listen, do evaluations of your size and color analysis, neckline and help pull you together to make you look your best. I endorse her for her work ethic, knowledge, resourcefulness, and a wonderful personality to work with.”
“Scarlett helped me part with impossibly outdated outfits and create new, flattering and modern looks with the better pieces I had in my closet. She also discovered new and creative ways to accessorized with jewelry I had overlooked for years. She’s terrific!!”
“LOVE your tips! Thanks to your how to pack a carry on suitcase tips, I was able to pack for my 15 day destination wedding and honey moon using only a carry-on suitcase! Of course, I am carrying my wedding dress onto the plane separately.”
“I wanted to thank you for all the time and effort you spent helping me get my closet in order. For the past few years I have felt ‘out of style’ and with my career attire drifting from business to business casual and sometimes even casual, many of my spur of the moment clothing buys never seemed to mesh with the other clothes already in my closet. I was feeling desperate for a new look and under your direction was amazed by the transformation. Turns out the right jacket cut and blouse color can turn drab into wow. Without a doubt your great wardrobe stylist suggestions, eye for color and clothing expertise helped guide me to a new look I love. Whether I leave home for business, pleasure or errands I feel great knowing I’m looking my best!”
“Thanks to Wardrobe Stylist and Personal Shopper Scarlett, my closet is now filled with clothes and accessories in the colors that work for me. By taking her advice into consideration, getting ready for anything from every day wear to an event is so much easier and I feel more confident. Scarlett’s professional demeanor and great personality made the whole process fun and comfortable.”
“I loved our Nordstroms personal shopping trip! So many new choices now in my closet. Thank you again for your guidance and great choices!”
“My image consulting session with Wardrobe Stylist Scarlett was such an enjoyable and informative morning, as well as a much needed revitalization of my unavoidably aging self. Her tips, suggestions, observations and recommendations were sound and accurate, and added a much needed boost to my over all morale. My favorite part of the package was the shopping trip. Never have I had such an efficient and productive shopping experience. This is one thing I intend to do once or twice a year with Scarlett. It proved not only easy, but I do believe it was cost effective in the long run.”
“Thank you, Scarlett, for a wonderful morning. It was like a birthday party for me, truly acheiving more than I expected. It was a fantastic experience, and if you knew me better, you would know what a supurlative complement that is, because I rarely rate any experience that high.”
“Thank you Scarlett for all your time and effort in helping me organize my ‘cough’ overflowing closet! With the clothes that I had you made some beautiful ensembles for me to wear. Whether it be to dinner, special occasion, or work. I am ready! Anxiety and stress be gone!
I was so overwhelmed by what I had in my closet, but now I feel better about going into my closet and getting rid of what doesn’t fit right. I am grateful for the time you spent with me and look forward to having you back, to go over my fall/winter wardrobe. I knew I wanted to make a change; I just needed a wardrobe stylist to help me. It was perfect timing that you presented at the Somers Library when you did. Someone up there must of been listening to me and sent you into my life. Thank you for helping me get on track.”
