Personal Styling

Styled by The Fold

We hope that The Fold provides an inspiring escape from the craziness of your everyday life where you can take some time for yourself. For some of our clients, we know that shopping- browsing, trying on, and selecting the right pieces- comes very naturally. For others, we realize that shopping can feel like a challenge. You might see the  clothing on the hangars and think, “that wouldn’t look good on me” or “what would I wear with it?”, and even if you do end up making a purchase, you get the piece home and it just hangs in your closet with the tags on because you aren’t quite sure how to style it. This is how you can end up with a closet full of lovely pieces but still feel like you have “nothing to wear.

If this is how you feel when you shop or go look at your closet when getting dressed in the morning, we want to alleviate the stress and turn it into a process that is enjoyable and builds confidence. Owner Natalie Navis has years of experience helping her clients find their own style voice, and is ready to tackle those closets with you. She started doing closet consultations and personal styling in 2011 with the launch of her blog and personal styling business, and is so excited to bring this service back to you! She will personally come to your house and give you a closet consultation, resulting in a cohesive wardrobe that fits well, flatters your figure, and most of all, expresses your unique style voice and gets you excited about getting dressed again.

The Process

Style Assessment:  Natalie will start by getting to know you, what your daily life looks like, and what you need your wardrobe to do for you.  She will discuss the struggles you are currently having with your wardrobe, and make a plan with you for turning these struggles into solutions. You will tap into your style voice by learning more about the image you would like to project and how your wardrobe can help you do this.

Closet Consultation: The next step is introducing your closet to Natalie. No judgment here- just a trusted friend who will help you conquer what otherwise seems like an overwhelming task. She will spend a couple hours going through your current inventory, helping you determine what to keep and what needs to go. You will end up with the pieces that work for you- the ones that fit, that are comfortable, and that make you feel confident, and from there Natalie will craft a plan for building outfits based off of these pieces.

Creating the Wardrobe: To bring it all together, Natalie will make recommendations for what you need to add in order to breathe life back into your current pieces and round out a cohesive wardrobe.  The suggested pieces will fill in the gaps in your closet, allowing you to get much more wear out of the clothes that are already there., Natalie will pick out some pieces and bring them to your home so you can see how they work into your wardrobe. There is no obligation to purchase, but your feedback will help Natalie understand what you are looking for in the future.  The shopping list will be an ongoing process, not intended to be completed all at once but rather serve as a guide for when you are shopping- at The Fold and anywhere else.

Follow Up: Once you have added the recommended pieces, Natalie will come back over to work them into your existing wardrobe and make sure you are content with where you have ended up. Her goal is ensure that you find the power of identifying your style voice and creating a wardrobe that properly reflects your inner spirit.
