Jessica identified and articulated my style and was able to help me better understand how to shop for that style.  I am now on the path to recovery from really thoughtless fashion sense, which plagues most guys.
     – Donald R, Managing Director Goldman Sachs

 

Loving all of my new stuff and having so much fun wearing it all. The Look Book is awesome- I look at it Sunday night for ideas for the week, then I go back in the mornings when I'm just not sure what I want to do! 
     – Amanda K, Managing Director Morgan Stanley

 

Dear Jessica, I must thank you for being a consummate professional and a dream to work with. Though my closet left much to be desired, you never made me feel that way, even when we were 'purging' it of some outdated items. You have given me many new ideas and ways in which to wear things - ideas that I never would have thought of on my own! When I got dressed the other night, my husband was floored by my outfit - and as I had bought much of it on our shopping expedition, I only have you to thank. I look forward to many more wardrobe makovers with you in the coming seasons!
     – Emily C, Floral Designer

 

The Wardrobe Whisperer is an outstanding service for business people as well as fashionistas. I needed a full wardrobe overhaul, and in one day of power shopping I laid the foundation for a new and dramatically improved look. We were in stores before they even opened in the morning, I saved more money through discounts than I spent on the service, and I learned a lot about clothing styles and how to cultivate my own look along the way. Everyone who breathes air should do this.
     – Jason D, VP of Product Development

 

This service has literally changed my life. I no longer waste precious time in the morning trying to figure out what to wear! My closet space is now clean and organized, and my overall image has improved both professionally and socially. Jessica helped me figure out what items needed to go, what was allowed to stay, and what was needed to fill in the gaps - a daunting task without the help of a professional. She understood MY personal style and raised up a notch. Jessica’s expert advice has saved me hundreds of dollars by creating tons of new outfits from my existing wardrobe and pointing me in the right direction regarding future purchases. I gave piles of clothes away to charity - it feels great knowing that the clothes I haven't touched in years were finally getting put to use and no longer wasting valuable closet space. Jessica was creative and intuitive, and explained why certain clothes and colours suit. It has made such a difference in how I feel about clothes, shopping and myself...I feel better about myself and what I portray to others. Everyone is amazed at the change! This service has given me the confidence to pick the right outfit for the right occasion. A great experience and an ego boost. Enormously helpful!
     – Jennifer K, Project Manager

 

Take it from a guy who knows next to nothing about fashion, Wardrobe Whisperer will help you do more than help you clean out your closet - they'll teach you how to identify which style and fit work for you.
     – Tim B, Tax Attorney (Partner)

 

Thanks to Wardrobe Whisperer, I no longer dread getting dressed in the morning.My closet used to be cluttered with worn-out, ill-fitting clothes that didn't seem to go together because I hated shopping even more than I hated dressing. Then Jessica came to the rescue. In one night, she quickly sorted though my closet, convinced me to donate unwearable clothing, showed me how to creatively pair the remaining pieces, and made a detailed shopping list of items that would complete my wardrobe. Despite having bagged up a significant portion of my clothes as Salvation Army bound, I actually had MORE work-appropriate outfits than I did before Jessica arrived on the scene. I never thought that anyone else could shop for me because of my strange body shape, but I decided to give Jessica a shot after she impressed me with her ability to put together work outfits from the slim pickings left in my closet that night. Jess bought me a new wardrobe that reflected my personal style and flattered my figure, and she stayed within the frugal budget that I had given her. Best of all, she introduced me to a new palette of colors that complement my complexion and new cuts that show off my assets and distract from my liabilities. These days, getting dressed in the morning is a pleasure, and I look more polished and professional than ever before.
     – Karen D, Government Litigator

 

I recently switched jobs to a firm that required business professional dress and I only had one week to fully revamp a closet.  Jessica took all the worry out of what would have been an enormously stressful process.  She took charge from the first appointment with amazing preparation – a variety of suits, shirts, ties, and accessories were already pulled according to my size and with differing styles and color patterns.  She also coordinated all tailoring services and even arranged for shoes to be delivered from a nearby store when we realized that I hadn’t worn the correct suit shoes for the fitting!  Jessica’s strong command of men’s clothing, impeccable sense of style, and firm yet easy-going direction were instrumental in replenishing my wardrobe and convincing me to work outside of my comfort zone.  I will definitely be using Jessica’s services again and can’t recommend her more highly.
     – Bill C, Managing Director (Finance)

 

You rock! I LOVE my retooled and souped up closet. Thank you so much for making what I had thought an onerous task into a reinvigorating fashion boost! And having photos of your inspirations keeps all the advice fresh. I am now trying to channel you when I dress. "What would Jessica say?" is my new mantra! I will keep your kind, but stern voice in mind. I can't wait for stage 2!
     – Lisa B, Personal Chef

 

Recently I priced out Trunk Club against the Wardrobe Whisperer.  On first blush, the up-front costs seemed to be higher, but it wasn't even close.  Here's the skinny:
  • Jessica comes to your house and spends 4 hours cleaning and organizing your closet, merchandising your clothes, and basically telling you which items are unworthy and which are worthy.  
  • Then, she takes all your disposed clothing, itemizes it and gives you a tax receipt. Mine was over $1600, which was almost 3X the cost of our first session.  Seriously - no brainer... she made me more than three times what she cost me.
  • She goes with you shopping and makes sure stuff actually flatters you (no guy is qualified to judge if his backside looks good in pants, let's face it).
  • She makes you a book that iterates every possible clothing combo you can make with your wardrobe.   Ok this is where I nerd out.  If you spend $10,000 on a closet and only wear 20% of the possible combinations,  you'd be way ahead of the game to spend that 10K on fewer items of higher quality and wear all the possible combinations.  Savvy?  It's nerdy I know.
  • ... but the hits keep coming:  Of course, Jessica gets massive discounts on the best stores in NYC, and she's up on every amazing sale.  
  • The wardrobe you get is uniquely tailored to you, so you actually build a style rather than getting some template style driven by what needs to move out of inventory.  Yeah I said it- you know that's what happens.
So putting my analyst cap on, I'll take the personal shopper that basically gives me money on the first session, and makes me look amazing for less.

I had given up on feeling good about myself, my body, and hoping that I would ever like what I see in the mirror again, until Jessica went shopping with me.  She knew just what would work on my body, what fits my personality, and I now feel so chic and put together. I am even going to wear a dress for the first time in 10 years and I feel so sexy in it, I actually started to cry when I looked in the mirror.  Thank you, Jess.
     – Anne T, Audit Manager


My oldest child is 13 years old and my wife wanted to update her wardrobe, as she hasn't done any serious clothes shopping since our oldest was born.  Styles have changed considerably in the interim (plus my wife's tastes have changed in 13 years) so we didn't know where to start.  Jessica was amazing and took control of the situation helping my wife think about colors, styles, patterns, and combination of outfits. We showed up at the personal shopping section of a department store and Jessica had already pulled out dozens of pieces for her to try on (skirts, blouses, pants, blazers).  On the rack, many of them didn't look like my wife's style; but once she tried them on they looked amazing.  Jessica has a great sense of fashion as well as an eye for just the right style for different ages and body types.  My wife left the store not only with a lot of fresh, classy, and age appropriate clothes, but also with a sense of how to better combine different pieces and accessories to make a wide number of outfits for any occasion.  My wife had a great time and learned a lot during the session with Jessica. We would recommend Jessica's services for anyone who wants to update their closet and feel good about how they look.

Thanks a million for coming over yesterday.  I called my sister right after you left to tell her how awesome it was.  I walked into my closet today and it made me so happy!  I am thrilled with the results and feel like a new person.  It far exceeded anything that I could have imagined. I think I'll be getting rid of a few more items that I was on the fence with yesterday, maybe even the three-button Theory blazer.  I knew that I needed the wardrobe cleanout to help me identify items that I was holding onto for too long and not making the best use of.  You found ways for me to wear the items that I love the most more often.  Thank you again! 
    - Nadine M, R&D Manager

Having a closet edit with Jessica was a life changing experience for me.She really helped me to refine my style, be more creative with the way that I put together my outfits, and re-think my shopping strategy. At first I was nervous to part with so many of my clothes, but at the end of the process I felt so liberated. As a result of going through this process, I am finding that I am more confident when I am leaving the house in the morning, mainly because I actually like what is in my closet now, can find things since I have cleaned out the clutter, and am more tuned into what is most flattering for my figure. I would recommend this service to anyone and everyone who is struggling with the chaos in their closets, shopping too much, but yet never has anything to wear, or who is looking for a little self-improvement. It was a great exercise for me, especially during the change in seasons.

Both my wife and I have been getting compliments since our closet cleanse and personal shopping follow-up. Jessica has amazing style in addition to great advice on how to maintain and tailor clothing and shoes you already own. The best part is that you get a well thought out list of items to buy that "fill in the gaps". It really helps increase the usefulness of what you already have which saves you money in the long run. The personal shopping was a lot of fun. We got exceptional service and she knows exactly what to ask for so you don't waste any time. Using both of these services in combination is highly recommended.
     – Patrick M, Graphic Designer

 

Before Jessica did my closet, I would panic getting dressed for work every morning. Since she's tackled my closet organization, clothes pairing, and personal shopping, I go to work with confidence, and get tons of compliments and attention! She's an image miracle worker!
     – Danee V, Photographer

 

I had such an amazing time. I told my husband on the cab ride back that your fee was easily earned not only in the discounts, but in your incredibly vast knowledge.  I'm truly very happy with everything, Jess!
     – Mary D, PR Specialist

 

I was feeling ambivalent about the items in my closet until Jessica came by and assembled what seemed like a whole new wardrobe out of what I already had in my closet.  I didn't think it was possible, but I've fallen back in love with my current wardrobe and can't wait to shop with her for the pieces that are missing.
     – Monica M, Managing Director
