I related my experience with Melissa comparable to my recent skydiving experience…on such a high and felt amazing!

Pam

Where do I begin – the only thing I can say is that I related my experience with Melissa comparable to my recent skydiving experience. I was on such a high and felt amazing after working with her. My journey with Melissa started in my closet and I was ready and willing for her to take it apart and get rid of most of the stuff. Mind you, I hired Melissa because I knew I needed help. However, Melissa held no judgment, respected what I wanted to keep and offered her opinion when I asked. After day one of cleaning out my closets I felt so clear and calm once it was done. She cleaned out the clutter not only in my closets but in mind as well.
.
The next time Melissa and I met was ridiculous (ridiculously amazing). I met her at the mall and walked into the first of three stores that she would bring me to. I walked into a dressing room and felt like a PRINCESS. All my clothes and accessories were displayed magnificently. From my accessories, being laid out on an amazing skirt, to my jeans being folded in piles so I could examine them all, to my blouses and dresses all hung for display. I honestly didn’t know what to do I was so excited! All I had to do was be the talent, stand there and try on. She showed me how to wear things at that moment and gave me so many options although she explained that the next day would be where she put it all together for me. Our day continued as she brought me to two more stores where she had the same thing done for me – all clothes displayed in a dressing room as I walked in.
.
I purchased hats, necklaces, rings, bracelets, jeans, shoes, dresses and shirts from casual to sexy. I felt and feel AMAZING. All I can say is that this experience was worth a million bucks. It was an experience that I will cherish forever. I am so happy to have found Melissa and am not letting go of her so quickly.
.
I found myself already going to my winter closets so excited to start getting ready for my winter make over. (mind you Summer just begun!) Melissa actually had to calm me and remind me to do one thing at a time. IF YOU ARE READY TO GIVE YOURSELF THE TREATMENT AND ATTENTION YOU DESERVE AND TAKE TIME OUT FOR YOURSELF TO BE THE BEST VERSION OF YOU…..Book your Sort, Shop and Style with Melissa NOW!

No matter what size you are, how much time you have (or don’t have) or what your budget may be, Melissa will ensure you look and feel your best Elyssaand will not quit until you do.

I’m a full-time working mom, with little time to shop. To add to that, I have discriminating taste and have a hard time finding clothes that make me feel like a million bucks (let’s just say I’m not a size 2). All that goes out the window when it comes to working with Melissa. There is no one I trust more than Melissa to style me for a special occasion or just because. Melissa has an incredible eye for stylish finds and putting outfits together with laser-like precision. I appreciate how she takes her time to get know you and your personal style. She works with items you already have rather than trying to push you into buying a crazy-expensive new wardrobe. No matter what size you are, how much time you have (or don’t have) or what your budget may be, Melissa will ensure you look and feel your best and will not quit until you do. Her amazing attitude and confidence are contagious. She is so much fun to work with and I would be lost without her.

With Melissa’s guidance I was able to clear a closet of clutter that was weighing me down.

Melissa is an amazing coach and cheerleader!  I was holding on to clothes that did not make me look or feel good and did not represent who I am today. As a busy working Mom it was a great investment to work with such a professional who brought both moral support and a sense of humor to this undertaking. With Melissa’s guidance I was able to clear a closet of clutter that was weighing me down. She then proceeded to “shop” my closet and style outfits, blending both old and new, in an updated way that I had not come up with myself..It was awesome to wear a fabulous jacket that I owned at a recent trade show that she styled in such a unique way! I would highly recommend Melissa’s services, her talent and professionalism are unmatched. Well worth the investment!

Melissa Garcia took me from post babies to hot mama in the blink of an eye.

The amazing, talented Melissa Garcia, took me from post babies to hot mama in the blink of an eye.  Melissa helped me sort and donate clothes which I have had for over 10 years (including maternity) that I didn’t know how to part with!  She made the sort painless and fun.  I can now see all the beautiful pieces I own!  Next came the shopping, which was my favorite!   Melissa had a fabulous sense of MY style after only one meeting, and I was overly impressed with the selection she pulled for me on our shopping day.  Her keen sense of style and fabulous sense of humor made it feel like I was shopping with my best friend.  Finally, she pulled it all together for me with our style session.  She mixed and matched pants, tops, jackets, shoes and accessories to create numerous looks.  I can not only see everything I own, but now know how to wear it and feel fabulous!  Thanks Melissa for such a fun experience and for making me feel like “me” again.

Melissa is enthusiastic and fun, all about the details and a customized styling experience!

Melissa, I can’t express how excited I am to have you in my life as my go-to stylist. You nailed my look for my sister’s wedding. I wanted to look fabulous after having two babies and what you styled for me for her special event exceeded expectations from hair to dress to accessories to shoes.  On our first meeting you were totally organized with dresses and Spanx by the time I arrived.  That sealed the deal because the experience was far from the chaotic atmosphere that I live 24/7 with two demanding kiddies.   You are enthusiastic and fun.  All about details and a customized styling experience. A pleasure to work with!  THANK YOU!

As a full time working mom, on a budget, Melissa made it happen and was worth every penny!

Having recently gone through the first stages of a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction, not only has my body changed physically, but it’s been an emotional roller-coaster. I honestly would have never thought to call a stylist but I needed some inspiration in helping to select an outfit for a special event I was attending. Meeting Melissa at the store and walking into the dressing room filled with beautiful, fun and funky clothes was just what I needed to lift my spirits. The very first thing I tried on was something I would have never selected if I was just shopping myself… and it was the outfit that I chose to wear. I’m completely obsessed with it and the shoes! I learned so many things in those few hours together and feel like I made a new friend. It is definitely an investment, but as a full-time working mom, on a budget, Melissa made it happen and it was worth every penny. When all my procedures are complete, I hope to do the Shop, Sort and Style! New me, new closet… and more fun with Melissa!

Melissa has an incredible talent and I am so happy I had the chance to work with her!

I first heard about Melissa Garcia from a friend’s blog. She had written an amazing article about the sort, shop, and style service. I was excited to learn that a service like this existed! I had always wanted to do something like this but never knew I could. I contacted my friend after reading the article to ask her all about it. Was it all to be good to be true? It sounded like a dream.  I contacted Melissa immediately. She had told me about the different services she offered. I knew I wanted the whole package (sort, shop, style). We made our first appointment for her to come over and do the sort. I couldn’t wait to begin. My closet was cluttered and in need of cleaning out.  When she arrived, I knew immediately that I found the right person for the job. She was so fun and laid back. She had me try on everything in my closet. With each piece, she would tell me her honest opinion. We had some great laughs throughout the process! I couldn’t believe how much crap I was holding on to. There was no need to keep it. We put my closet back together and it looked amazing. I could finally see all the great things I had had all along that were buried in there.  Once we were done, she made a list of items that she and I felt were needed to enhance my wardrobe.  Our next time together was my shop appointment. Melissa arrived hours before I arrived and pulled amazing choices for me from the list of items I needed. When I arrived, she was waiting for me in the dressing room. I could not believe the assortment. I loved what she pulled! Some were things that were just me and some were things I wouldn’t have picked. I tried everything on, I was surprised to have loved the items that I wouldn’t have picked. She really knew what would be flattering for me. She has a great eye for fashion but also knows what works for the individual.  We made our final selections and set up our next appointment for my styling session. Melissa came back to my apartment. My closet was filled with my old and new items. She was working in my closet creating an unbelievable look book. I had amazing looks for spring thatshe created. Melissa put things together that I would have never thought of but it worked so well!  She has an incredible talent and I’m so happy that I had the chance to work with her. I am really looking forward to working with her again!

Melissa has incredible instincts … I trust Melissa’s judgement and her ability to listen and hear what you are saying!Michelle Hurst

My relationship with Melissa began in the whirlwind of preparing for The Emmy’s. I needed clothes to wear to the parties surrounding the big event. I called Melissa on a Friday, sent sizes and other personality info on Monday, and had a consultation at a designer showroom on Tuesday! Every piece was beautiful, simple, and elegant, including the jewelry.  Melissa has incredible instincts and I was not unhappy about any of her choices for me; if anything, I was surprised by colors and designs I would never have chosen myself. I LOOKED GOOD!  I trust Melissa’s judgement and her ability to listen and hear what you are saying. What more do you want in a stylist?!

Some of her choices brought out a new confidence in me that I didn’t know was there!Bridget Coyne Gabe

Melissa is the first stylist I worked with and it was an incredibly enjoyable experience. She’s so easy to talk to and I never felt I was being judged as I told her about certain insecurities. I went to Melissa because I’ve always had anxiety picking outfits for auditions and meetings. As I looked at the rack of clothing she pulled, I was amazed at how clearly she saw what I was looking for. She also pulled some outfits that I may have glanced at and walked past because I didn’t think I could “pull them off.” I was wrong! Some of her choices brought out a new confidence in me that I didn’t know was there. The proof? I went to an audition wearing a pencil skirt and blue button down I had purchased. I pulled out some heels and earrings for a little extra umph. I walked in the audition room and felt I owned the role. The outfit helped me to assume the confident air that the character needed. I just heard that my audition tape was sent on to the “higher ups!” The only issue with going to Melissa is that you’ll always want her by your side when you go shopping!!

Working with Melissa was fantastic.  Immediately, she created an atmosphere of collaboration and ease — we fully achieved what I was after in my style while also stretching it in fun and unexpected ways.  She has an impeccable knack for pairing sophistication and imagination with an authentic expression of who you are.  That’s what she does: she nails “you” in your wardrobe — the most confident, most creative, most empowered you.  So glad and grateful that I chose to work with her — it was a game-changer, for sure…!!
