Your Closet/Your Favorite Boutique | Meredith Ehler | Wardrobe Stylist | Sterling, Virginia

My closet client had a closet full of treasures!  When I arrived it was in disarray and when I left it looked like a boutique!

My client’s main goal for hiring me was to feel peace again when she looks at her closet. She got her wish!  Her closet is now organized in categories, just like a boutique, making getting dressed a joy!  Watching a closet go from piles of clothing to your favorite place to shop is so rewarding.  I am confident my client will enjoy peaceful mornings waking up to this closet!

After (just a few bins left to fill)

We started by organizing the loose piles of clothing.  Then we went through the hanging items.  We sorted everything into piles for different purposes.  Some clothing stays in the closet, some goes into personal storage for either the next season or the next size you plan to be.  Other clothing is set aside for charity donation and yet others are for consigning.  Some go to the cleaners to see if set in stains can be removed and if not successfully cleaned they will not be allowed back into the closet.  Some clothes that are stained or damaged beyond repair go straight to the trash.

Next stop, her dresser drawers!   -Meredith

Sometimes a girl needs to have just the right item for your special night out.  Something that sets you apart from the rest.  That’s when you need something like one of the above necklaces from Pamela Goose.  She is a brilliantly talented jewelry designer based in Northern Virginia.  This beautiful fashionista began designing jewelry 14 years ago.  It all started out of necessity, as she was constantly looking for a statement piece to complete her outfits.  I was transfixed by the one she was wearing the day we met.  That led me to a second meeting, to shop for myself and to learn more about these treasures.

As we met for coffee I gazed at the table full of her treasures that she brought to show me. I was overwhelmed with the unique beauty in her designs.  ”I created them, wore them to work and literally sold them right off my neck!” she shares with me as I drool over her necklaces.  The thing that strikes me is that the materials are so special and unique, like nothing I have seen in the stores.  Each necklace dazzles with the perfect balance of opalescent sparkle and deep rich tones.  ”I love using authentic stones, crystals and freshwater pearls! Each one is one of a kind, so your piece is special! ” explains Goose.

As a fashion stylist I am so excited to share her pieces with you because I believe we should all have a few special accessories that are truly unique in our wardrobes.  Nothing beats a on-of-a-kind necklace.  Leave me a comment if you are interested in purchasing one of her exquisite pieces.  And remember that I am always available to help you analyze, accessorize, and update your wardrobe so you can style just the right outfit to match your new necklace!  -Meredith

Drama!  My dining room went from builder drab to dramatic and fab!  I love it!  I chose a paint called Limousine by Allen + Roth at Lowes!

Dining room AGP

Lot’s more to do:  chair slip covers, paint ceiling, molding boxes, etc.  But for now I am happy to finally have my dining room reflect my style.  Now for the rest of the house! -Meredith
