Local Business Highlight
Kate Ross and Company - Personal Stylist -
Clothes shopping ranks at the top of least-favorite-things-to-do list, right after public speaking and having my photo taken. The experience of selecting from hundreds of options, trying on my selections, just to find out after being trapped in the dressing room, that nothing fits correctly or looks right, gave me an aversion to the process. Recently, I received an email from Kate Ross, a client I represented in the purchase of her first home in Normal Heights. She shared the exciting news that, after owning her own boutique, she shifted her talent toward personal styling. Her mission is to help women find and own their style.
I jumped at the chance to work with a professional! Kate is one of those people who makes you feel at ease the minute you meet her. In the comfort of my own home, she helped me define what makes me feel good, rediscover so many lost items in my closet, remove 7 bags of clothes that no longer (if ever) served me. Then she shopped for some key items to complete my wardrobe, created outfits, and returned anything that didn’t work. What a gift she gave me, and I gave myself. Now, I feel 100% confident that everything in my closet has a purpose. If you’ve struggled like me, or would just like some fresh perspective on your closet, visit Kate's website to get in contact. It’s a gift you’ll always treasure.
