See what one of our stylish Mom's wrote about her experience in Yummy Mummy Magazine. "Style Makeover for Mom -- where oh where had my style gone?"
It wasn't the actual clothes or makeup or even hairstyle that made me feel alive again. It was knowing that I could do this every day for myself. I now know, how to make great styles choices for me, my age, my build, and my colouring -- all within my budget and time schedule. I feel young again, I feel confident, I feel a difference! I'm striding ahead knowing I look good. Thank you Christie for teaching me that!

“The best two words I can give you about Christie? HIRE HER. I first hired Christie while I was on maternity leave with my second baby. I was 6 months post-partum and hadn't really bought any "real" new clothes since I was pregnant with my son 3 years before. My closet was a mish-mash of disposable pieces I purchased to get me through whatever season I was in, and nothing worked together. There was no cohesion in my closet and I was turning into the frumpy "lululemons and a t-shirt" mom. I came across Christie on Twitter, looked up her website and contacted her the next day. It was the best decision I've ever made.
I selected the complete makeover (without the hair consultation or photo session) and was thrilled with the results. Simply by wearing the appropriate colours for makeup and clothing and buying clothes that fit properly, I felt like a new person. Friends and family immediately commented that I looked years younger and pounds lighter; an impressive feat when dealing with a toddler and an infant all day. One great thing about Christie is that she didn't try to change who I was; on the contrary, she really listened to what I said and brought out who I was and what I was comfortable in. She pushed me out of my comfort zone a little bit to encourage my to try new things and I look better as a result. (I now actually wear accessories, thanks to her.) She works miracles in stores, pulling together outfits you would never have managed on your own.
I was so impressed with the results that I hired her for my husband. I re-hired Christie for myself when I needed to purchase my back-to-work wardrobe a few months ago. Two more of my family members have now hired her, as has one of my neighbours. As skilled as she is with makeup, determining your colours and being a shopping whiz, Christie is one of the most fun, personable and genuine people I've had the pleasure of working with. She makes you feel as if you're out shopping with your best friend. My makeover with Christie left me feeling 10 years younger and 20lbs lighter! Everyone needs to work with her - do it for yourself!"

Do you ever think, "I have nothing to wear"?
We've all been there. Your closet is full with some pieces you love and other things you're not sure what to do with. You often resort to the 'same old thing' that you know looks good, but you're becoming bored with wearing the same outfits time and time again. You may even have items in your closet that you haven't worn in years still hanging up 'just in case' you may wear them again. Pieces you loved in store remain unused in your wardrobe because you aren't sure how to create an outfit with them.
You know you have some pieces in there you like, you just aren't sure how to get that 'put together' look you're striving for. You may be unsure of what fashion 'rules' to follow or how to mix n' match.
We'll go through your closet and create new, fresh, chic outfits from what you currently own.
Together, we'll do the following:
- Organize:We'll look at your closet and decide what to keep, possibly donate, alter or store elsewhere.
- Plan: We'll create a list of things recommeded for future purchase in order to fill any 'gaps' you may have in your closet.
- Create: I'll show you how to create multiple outfits when only using a few pieces at a time. This will ensure you maximize what you have in your wardrobe. We can also take pictures of new outfits we create together so you have a look book of your new, chic outfits.
What you'll end up with? A closet you'll love to look at and a wardrobe that fills you with excitment about the outfit possibilities inside that all suit you perfectly.
Cost: $250 for 2-3 hours
"I have been in the television industry for 20 years, mainly in front of the camera, so how I look is very important. Do I ever wish I had Christie's help 20 years ago. What a difference she has made in how I look. I have had many people comment recently on how well put together I look and how fabulous my style is. Now I have always had a sense of pride in how I dress and thought, for the most part I looked pretty good. But wow I have never felt better! With just a few changes and a better understanding of my body shape, not to mention colour I am loving how my clothes look. And the best part is I am re-working a lot of what I already owned, just wearing things a bit differently - as a belt is my new best friend! Thanks so much Christie. I can't wait till I have you in to work my closet again."
- Linda R, Television Producer
