Do you agonize over what to wear for a holiday party, a night out or just every day? Does it make you crazy to look through your closet for just the right outfit? Do you despise clothes shopping in general, even if it is for others?
Finding the right attire can be difficult and stressful for many people, whether it is for everyday or a specific occasion. Considering the busy lifestyles most of us lead, we seldom have the time to update our wardrobes with the appropriate styles that reflect the ever-changing trends or even keep up with our fluctuations in size/weight. To add more confusion, clothing sizes vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, which means you’re never the same size in each store. Yes, that is a fact! To top it all off, we have families and commitments that seem to get in the way. I mean have you ever tried shopping for new clothes, with a 3 and 5yr old running amuck in the store (and everywhere else!). It seems so easy, just look in your closet, get rid of the ‘old’ and make way for the ‘new’, however it is a lot harder in practice then in theory. We tend to want to hold on to our clothes no matter how unflattering they may be, how out of style or how way too ‘worn in’ to still be called wearable.
There are many articles, books and websites on this subject, but nothing takes the place of someone taking an outside look at your wardrobe and helping you make the hard decisions to get you going. Thankfully these types of people exist and I am one of them. My name is Maya and I have been in the fashion industry for fifteen years, working in every aspect of the industry until I decided to create a business that couples my passion for the art of fashion and my desire to make people look and feel great!
In just a short amount of time, Personal Styling by Maya can take you from stressed to ‘well’-dressed. After all, I understand all of the reasons you hate to purge and shop (heck, I have a husband). I will come to your house to assess your wardrobe and let you know what works for your lifestyle and body type. Together, we will purge what doesn’t work and getting you moving forward with items that will make you feel beautiful and confident every day!

--- My first tip regarding the closet ‘cleanse’ is to make 3 piles; donation, consignment and keep. Then work from there to pare down your wardrobe until it consists of everything that you love and feel great wearing! ---
