Joyce's Closet: Personal Shopping & Styling Chronicles
Although Joyce's Closet started as a consignment service for women, it has since grown and now offers a few other services not only for women, but for men as well. The first is a Dress Rental Service. A service that provides a dress, shoes and accessories if needed to women that have a special occasion to attend, such as a wedding, cocktail party or holiday party with the holiday season just around the corner. We have a huge inventory of dresses for different shapes and sizes and at different price points. Then we make the dresses available to rent for a fraction of the retail price. This enables you to save money and closet space by renting a dress. We also work closely with a hair and makeup artist and offer an additional hair and make-up package to complete the look. This service is by appointment only.
I have been a stylist for many years and have styled numerous photo-shoots and personal female clients, but I just recently ventured into styling male clients. I also offer personal shopping and wardrobe consultation to take the hassle of making the right choices with what to wear. Putting and coordinating outfits is something that comes natural to me. I know what to wear, who should wear it and where they should wear it to. I also have a keen understanding of wardrobe staples, what's trending and how you can achieve any look you want on any budget. You also have the option of me being your personal shopper, or doing a wardrobe consultation on your closet to make sure that you have the right pieces to achieve the look you want.
I recently embarked on a personal shopping adventure with a male client who had recently separated from his partner and lost over 40lbs. He wanted a fresh start and some staples to give him the confidence boost he needed to get back into the dating sense as well as looks that fit his lifestyle. We had an initial consultation where we discussed budget, lifestyle and goals and I quickly got a sense of his personality and knew what would work best for him. We picked 4 different looks with wardrobe staples that would transition well from season to season and the end result was positive.
