“Thank you, thank you for being such a fantastic panelist at last night’s Career Week event.  You’ve got so much expertise to share and I’m grateful you were willing and able to come to Loyola and share it with us.  Our students picked up some great tips.  You are such a pro and so generous with your time.” Cheryl Manley, Loyola University Chicago

“Thanks again for everything. Your consultation was outstanding, on point with my personal style and extremely helpful. I look forward to recommending you to others!” TAMMY

Can’t wait to go shopping with you again! I just wanted to say thank you for my Haute Closet. I am loving it. I seriously feel like a whole new woman. I packed for my trip in literally 15 minutes last week. It is usually a 3 hour process.” SAMANTHA

“Good luck and continued success with your business. I can see that you really enjoy it and you’re great at it! You have a good eye. Thanks again for all your help. You made cleaning out my closet a lot easier.” PAULINE

“April. Thank you so much. You are so talented and truly do have a knack and gift for what you do!! This is a belated thank you for spending the morning with me earlier this month. Thank you a million again. Was so enlightening!” LAURA

“I have to tell you, I’m so happy to have you as my own personal stylist. It’s so much easier to shop for summer stuff now that I know what styles/cuts to look for. I absolutely adore you and appreciate everything you did for me. Also, I wore the dresses earlier this month on a business trip to Florida. I got SOOO many compliments. Thank you, thank you, thank you.” SOPHIA

“I just finished telling another of my friends about the invaluable experience of shopping with you. I have been out shopping a couple of times since then, and although it isn’t as much fun as shopping with you, I felt much more confident about finding things that would be right for me and work with the wardrobe we began building in Chicago.” JESSICA
