Q How do I save time getting dressed each day?

1.) My number one tip is to establish an "outfit recipe" that works for you!

In a closet audit, I help you figure out the simplest combination of pieces that works for you and your lifestyle. Then I show you how to apply that recipe when creating an outfit!

2.) Find 10-15 go-to looks, take a picture, and use these as a reference.

When you can't figure out what to wear, you can always refer back to one of the pictures for a quick look that you know you feel good wearing.

3.) Narrow your color scheme.

I can help you select a palette that works best for you, and show you how to mix and match colors. We'll work together to make sure your closet isn't cluttered with colors and patterns that "aren't quite right" or "just don't go" so it's easier to create quick looks each day!

Q Is hiring a stylist worth it?

Hiring a stylist can actually help you SAVE so much money. The majority of my clients have between 10 and 20 items in their closet with the tags still on. If you can relate, then you're probably wasting money already...

I can help you learn how to incorporate those pieces into your rotation, as well as show you techniques to avoid a closet full of clothes you never wear.

Also, a unique feature of Refined, is that I take your unwanted or unworn items with me after a closet audit. I've partnered with a local consignment shop that offers optimum rates to my clients. The earnings from your clothing can be used for future styling services! I've had clients receive upwards of $300 in cash from their rejects!

Easy to work with!

5/ 5

Theresa is super easy to work with and gives great style suggestions that fit my personality, not the general “what’s in fashion” right now. Thanks Theresa! Look forward to working with you again!

Theresa helped me find a style for my engagement photos. She recommended a one time styling session. She picked outfits we already owned and would never have tried! I’m so happy with my photos and plan to use her services again.
