Anjin (my Poodle in Chief) and I want to make sure all your questions are answered!
1. Anjin is a 12 year old, 5 pound toy poodle. We have been together since he was 8 weeks old.
2. Anjin is the old Japanese word for pilot. I chose that name for him because I was a Northwest Airlines pilot in a former life.

What does having a personal stylist mean?
It means that I help you find the perfect outfit, clothes, shoes, and accessories to make you feel and look your best. I use my fashion know-how and contacts to ensure that your outfit is perfect for you. This includes closet makeovers and shopping trips --- with you or without you, whatever you prefer.
Can you describe how you begin?
The first step is usually a closet makeover which involves trying on any piece in your closet that we’re not absolutely sure is a keeper. The only things that go back into your closet are pieces that flatter you and enhance your look.
The next step is to make lists of items to shop for; pieces that are missing, need to be replaced, or are new to your look. Then I take detailed body measurements to ensure that whatever we shop for is properly sized for you.
The last step is your shopping experience. I typically pre-shop the stores and pull all the pieces that will suit you, so that when you arrive you have a dressing room full of choices.
How much does it cost for a closet makeover?
The price varies depending on how long it’s been since you last edited your closet. So, as an example, if you haven’t curated your closet in about two years, then there’s likely to be a lot to curate! My process is to have a client try on any piece that we are unsure about, something that might not be a flattering look. On average it may take about four hours to curate a closet and I charge by the hour.
How much does it cost to go shopping with you?
Again I charge by the hour. I do not take commissions from stores or receive “kick-backs”. Whatever price point suits you is where we shop. I am just as happy that you purchased a $20 dollar tee as that you purchased a $200 tee. It’s all about helping you create “YOU”!
Do you shop at stores that I like?
I can shop at any price point that suits you. The options are endless. From J.Crew to Louis Vuitton, the choice is yours.
How do you shop with Vegas Visitors when you haven’t been in their closet?
In this case the first half hour of our meeting is devoted to your goals and preferences. Then we shop together and I show you how to pick only the most flattering wardrobe editions.
If you are a Vegas Visitor with a specific event planned for your time here, we focus on getting that perfect ensemble, that could include the clothes and all appropriate accessories.
Do you work with both men and women?
Sure! As a matter of fact 40% of my clientele is male!
Can you do personal shopping for gifts?
Of course! I am here to help you find the solution to any shopping need. Clients frequently call me to find the perfect gift for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and graduations ---- and more.
Do you do corporate presentations on what to wear?
Absolutely. I’ve done presentations for audiences of 10 to 200, in hospital lobbies, restaurant settings, as well as in conference facilities. These presentations can range from exploring business casual attire to “what NOT to wear”. I can tailor the presentation to any audience and any fashion need.
Do you ever offer any discounts?
Yes, I extend discounts to select groups including military, first responders and teachers. Also, I offer packages on certain holidays such as Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s and Father’s Day! Sign up for my mailing list to be the first to know when a special is coming up.
