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!
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!
“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.”
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 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.”
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 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!!
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 De Beas e 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 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.
Yesterday Was The Best Clothing Experience In My Long Life!!!
Your Ability To Size Up The Person And Their Wardrobe Was Incredible. With Your Ability, I Have Eliminated Items I Never Wear And You Put Together Items From Several Outfits To Make Several New Outfits. Bottom Line Is My Closet Has Less Clutter And More Outfits. You Are Very Pleasant To Work With And Your Knowledge Of Fashion Exceptional.
Thank You For All Your Help I Am Extremely Grateful.
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.
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 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.
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!
I absolutely LOVED my Skype consultation with Scarlett! My previous photoshoot was a disaster and I didn’t like my pictures. This time I was determined to give it my best. I hired Scarlett to help me choose the right clothes and accessories. I was tired of having closet full of stuff that looked great in the store, but not so much on me. Scarlett came to the call prepared. She reviewed the pictures I sent her and had incredibly helpful tips for me on how to dress, what colors and styles suit me well. She even created a WishList on an online store to show me what types of clothing might look good at me. Scarlett transformed my life. She not only helped me feel like a superstar during my photoshoot, but gave me confidence to walk away from clothes that don’t compliment me and focus on styles and colors that will make me look and feel great. Thank you Scarlett for turning my photoshoot into a success and teaching me how to be a confident shopper! I highly recommend Scarlett as a personal stylist for any professional woman who is looking to dress for success and look stunning at all times.
Thanks to you Scarlett, I got two ‘wow you look great’ comments today.
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!
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. Thank you!Before I worked with you, I bought random pieces of clothing and would go thru my closet everyday, trying hard to figure out what to wear. Now my closet is organize , thanks to your Closet Organising Guide, and filled with clothes from our shopping trip, that easily co-ordinate with each other. Picking out what to wear is now a joy thanks to you!
I don’t know if Scarlett has ever been described as a clothes-whisperer, but now that I have worked with her online and over the phone, when I went on my first shopping trip afterwards, I heard her lilting voice in my head saying, encouragingly. . .remember to stick with the colors and necklines that are best for you. It made shopping much easier, and I am delighted with the how great I feel in what I selected. Thank you, Scarlett”. Director, Communications and Marketing at American Optometric Association”
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!
I truly enjoyed Scarlett’s “virtual” styling session. It was so easy to snap a couple of pictures and hit send. The 30 + minutes we spent were very informative. Before we spoke I had been following advice from styling tips over 15 years old. Scarlett helped me to update my look and gave me great advice on how to look better in those clothes I own. Will have to schedule a virtual shopping trip.” Financial Advisor,
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!
I HATE to shop. I’m not exaggerating to say I’d rather a root canal. Even if you love to shop, run, run, run to wardrobe stylist Scarlett. Her sense of style, keen eye, professionalism and an eye to budget, all add up to the easiest additions to my wardrobe ever. You will love her and love the results.
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!
Scarlett presented to our Westchester chapter of “Over 40 Females”. Scarlett’s presentation was a HUGE success…. who ever expected we could enhance our image to look “Pounds Thinner and Inches Taller” within a matter of minutes just drawing from your own wardrobe. Her illustrations immediately confirmed why Image Consultant Scarlett was named Red Hot Image Maker by Westchester Magazine. Scarlett’s radiant personality, sense of humor and brilliant ability to draw you into her world of fashion, style and imagery to enhance your personal appearance was appreciated and loved by all.” Westchester County – Chapter Director Over 40 Females
Wardrobe Stylist and speaker, Scarlett was a wonderful addition to Job Central, a job-search event hosted by online job-matching service TheLadders on January 10, 2013. Her expert style advice was heard by hundreds of job seekers, who eagerly expressed enthusiasm for putting her tips into practice. In true practice-what-you-preach fashion, Scarlett presents herself with confidence and sensibility, and exudes a true passion for helping others on their paths to success.
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’s dynamic, insightful and fun presentation inspired our students and helped them to put their best selves forward in the political world. Thanks to Scarlett, their professional appearance will radiate their newly acquired political campaign skills. They will be their best…inside and out!” Executive Director Women’s Campaign School at Yale University.
Thank you for your success in upgrading my work wardrobe. My casual-dress style was dated and not on par with the attire of my supervisor and colleagues at his level, and you led me through the shopping experience to correct that in about 90 minutes! I’m not fond of shopping for clothes, and you made it fun and efficient. I also suspect that the price reductions you found with the clothier were more than your engagement fee.I feel more pride in my appearance and people have noticed the change in my attire. My clothes fit better, look better, and are more comfortable thanks to your knowledge of style and fit. Definitely a satisfied client and I would recommend you to any guy looking to do the same.
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.
Thank you for all the photos of the outfits you created for me using my existing clothes. Every outfit I wore last week was one that you put together, and I really appreciate it. It’s like having a closet full of new clothes. I love picking out what to wear, simply by looking at the pictures and having everything together, even the jewelry. Thank you!
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.
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.
Scarlett De Pease was exactly what the fashionistas ordered! Our law firm was looking for someone to help our employees (women and men) better understand how to appropriately dress business casual and why it is important to dress for success. Scarlett’s presentation style was perfect for out non stuffy law firm. She was funny, original, informative and very approachable. The presentation generated a lively Q & A and people felt comfortable speaking to her on a one-on-one basis for more personal questions. Scarlett provided lots of tips on how to shop as well. She made learning fun and easy. And best of all, since her presentation we have noticed employees stepping up their game when it comes to dressing at the office. We look forward to having Scarlett come back to give us more tips and ideas next year.
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!
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’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!
What a GREAT day!!! Thank you so much for everything!! Thank you for your time, your expertise, for the planning, your patience, your upbeat attitude, and most of all, your talent for putting together a wardrobe that far surpassed all expectations!! You’re FABULOUS!!
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 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
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!!!”
As a client of Scarlett’s, I’ve been lucky enough to take advantage of her online shopping service. Once I let her know what I was looking for, she took off, quickly sending me a long list of links to specific clothing that she knew I’d like, along with comments on sizing and her opinion. I wound up with all the pieces I needed, plus a few I didn’t even think about, but loved when I got them. Scarlett makes it easy, stress-free and super-convenient. I’m a life-long client.
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.
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!
I discovered Scarlett through a mutual friend whose ensemble was stunning. I had to ask “who” she was wearing. She passed me Scarlett’s name, and what I got from our engagement was so much more than a few beautiful dress recommendations. She empowered me with the knowledge of the right colors and silhouettes for my coloring and shape. I’ve received piles of compliments on the items we both chose using her guidance. She gave me a tool I will have for the rest of my life. Working with Scarlett is an investment not only in your closet, but your confidence as well!
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.
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 began working with wardrobe stylist Scarlett in the Spring of 2013. The first thing she did was to take me shopping in my wardrobe. I can tell you this was the last thing I wanted to do. However, it was fun and I was thrilled to see that Scarlett could come up with 30 “new” outfits! We then went shopping because I needed some special outfits for events that I had coming up. I asked Scarlett to design an outfit around a pin that my mother-in -law had given me. She did it. I was thrilled with the outfits she chose. I was even happier that I did not need to spend a fortune on them and even happier that each time I wear them, I get a compliment.
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 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!
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!
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.
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
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!
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 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.”
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.
I admire you, I respect you, and I am so thankful for you! “Scarlett 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 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, 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 the talent. I can’t thank her enough.
As the owner of a marketing agency, personal shopper Scarlett understood the “look” I wanted to achieve. She presented me with mix-and-match options that were age-appropriate and budget-friendly. Now, I feel much more confident when I am making new business presentations, facilitating client meetings and attending networking events. I actually look forward to getting dressed each day. I can’t wait to shop with Scarlett again!
Prior to working with Scarlett, I had been shopping at the same store for many years, buying the same conservative styles in multiple colors, and not always wearing the most flattering colors, jewelry, or styles. During my virtual style consultation, Scarlett expertly evaluated my current outfits and showed me how making very small changes such as wearing a different pair of earrings, adding a belt, or raising a hemline by a couple of inches can make all the difference. I was amazed! Scarlett also gently encouraged me to leave my “style comfort zone” and suggested some fashionable, affordable styles online that would highlight my petite frame and add a youthful, yet professional element to my wardrobe. I’m grateful for Scarlett’s suggestions and am so excited to try some new styles!
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
I hired wardrobe stylist Scarlett at first to do my colors with our 341 Team, it was a really nice afternoon to share with the girls, we learned a lot about what not to wear. After that I hired her to come to my house, edit and organize my clothes and then we went to work, 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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
To be truthful, I wasn’t sure I needed Scarlett’s services, but I knew that I wanted to recommend her to my clients and before I did that I had to try it myself first. I was wrong. I didn’t realize the value of having someone take the time to go through my wardrobe, point out the good, bad and yes some ugly. The really fun part was creating brand new outfits from the clothes I already owned. Scarlett was patient, funny and while I was flinging clothes around the bedroom she color coded my closet so everything was SO easy to find. We also matched each outfit to jewelry that I had that had been sitting idol. Just by changing the jewelry it gave each outfit a brand new feel. Most importantly Scarlett was helping me fit my clothes to my personality and step away from what I thought I should be wearing. Sometimes you don’t know the value of something until you have tried it and this definitely fits that category for me!
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
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.
Scarlett makes it incredibly simple to view your closet as your friend, (not your enemy) when designing the business image you want to project to your market. She educates and inspires you to create the image you want to project in the context of what you truly want to attract. And for so many business owners, that can be a critical distinction in the kind of clients you get to serve. She’s a 6-figure business owner’s partner in success!”Think Bigger Coach and creator of the 6-Figure Idea Incubator: Where profitable businesses are born(TM)
Thank you so much for speaking at our 2013 Women Bankers Conference. You did a fabulous job! It was so cool to see how our conference participants had made themselves over the next day. The ladies really listened to your tips regarding the importance of how the correct colors, styles, fit and accessories will make them feel and look younger. I think they all appreciated your advice that they don’t have to go out and buy a new wardrobe – their “new looks” are already in their closet.” I wanted to share one of the comments – “She was great and I enjoyed the personal consultation. Very great tips and good advice on how to use existing wardrobe and get rid of what doesn’t fit.” Director of Education at Missouri Bankers Association
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 hourswith 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 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
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 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!!
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 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
“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!”
We were pleased to have Scarlett De Bease as a member of our Making Your Professional Image Work panel at the 2012 Women’s Career Strategies Conference. She offered our audience some great advice on how to update their look and enhance their professional image.
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!
I was amazed at how much value Scarlett provided me in our virtual consultation. Not only did she quickly grasp the clothes that looked like “me” from just a series of photographs, but she picked up on colors and combinations which were not in the photos but I personally liked and encouraged me to use them more because they enhanced my features. Scarlett also gave me the reinforcement to understand why some items looked better on me than others. Then to top it off she provided a comprehensive list of examples I could instantly add to my wardrobe. In 2 hours I went from uncertain to confident with a new batch of clothes that really work for me on the way. Digital Analytics Expert Organize Everything
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.
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,
