Testimonals

“As an entrepreneur and a busy mom of two little people, my fashion routine had taken a backseat for quite sometime. Getting dressed in the morning was something I no longer enjoyed.  It had become a lackluster event…and not a great way to start my day. I decided it was finally time to do something about it!
Luckily through an online search I found Christie and signed up for her “VIP Style Package” and I couldn’t be happier with the results! From my colour analysis (it’s amazing what the right colours can do for you!), to the wardrobe clean out (which was severely needed and lots of fun!) and a day of shopping together (the icing on the cake) Christie was warm, sincere and loads of fun. 
She really listened to what I needed for my lifestyle and helped me transform my wardrobe into something I thoroughly enjoy wearing now! She taught me about what clothing looks best on my body shape and how colours and shapes can play a major role in bringing out your best features. It has made the biggest difference in how I buy clothing, how I feel about my body and how I continue to dress. My morning routine actually takes more than 5 mins now and that is a GREAT thing in my books. I feel confident and beautiful in my clothing and all around better about myself. I actually enjoy getting dressed again, the only downside is a have to wake up at little earlier because I am actually looking after myself now LOL. But it’s a great “problem” to have.
Treat yourself to one of Christie’s Style packages and I promise you will not be disappointed! Her passion for her clients shines through all of her interactions and her warmth and fun personality is contagious. I cannot say enough great things about the whole experience! From start to finish it was just a sheer pleasure to be a part of.  
Thank you Christie from the bottom of my heart.”

“First and foremost, Christie is a BEAUTIFUL person both inside and out.  She was the first person that came up on my search for an image consultant; I found her bio to be extremely warm and inviting and called her right away. I instantly felt a connection with her and decided to move forward with a package that offered a colour consult and closet makeover.  I needed help picking the right colours for my complexion, clothing styles for my petite body structure, and most importantly, how-to inject fun pieces into my wardrobe but make it look effortless!  As a working professional and mom, I wanted a wardrobe that was polished both at work, and when I was running around with my son to his activities.  We covered so much ground in our first meeting and her personality was infectious! She was full of spirit and fun (even a bit silly at times which suited me just fine!), yet grounded and nurturing in her recommendations.  I couldn’t wait for our next meeting to go through my closet!  At our closet meeting – what started out calm and organized turned into what felt like a fashion runway show!  She pulled together pieces that I would have never thought of, but were on point, brought pieces to life that I had purchased, but not worn. She pushed me a little out of my comfort zone; but reinforced that I will look my best when I am wearing things that are suited to MY body type and not only a fad, trend, colour or style that is popular.  By comparing items in my wardrobe that worked and didn’t, I was able to conceptualize and understand what she saw and the difference it made in my look.  This makes a huge difference now in pieces that I pick out and how I shop.  I had a blast shopping with her and the best way to describe the experience was like shopping with your best friend with silly outakes! I loved it!!  It doesn’t take long to develop a connection with Christie – her personality is THAT inviting!

I now follow her on her YouTube channel, Instagram, and Twitter – her advice and product reviews are spot on! Although she has taught me so much already, I still try to find ways to work with Christie.  She has helped me find myself, love myself, and empower myself.  From one woman to another – invest in yourself and welcome Christie into your world and treat yourself to champagne experience!”

“A few years ago, Christie Ressel basically changed my entire outlook on clothing, fashion and the importance of forward your best personal image. Without a doubt, using Christie’s services has been one of the best investments I have ever made in myself. Once an aimless shopper trying to squeeze in to the next “trend”, Christie made me realize that I didn’t need to do a complete overhaul of my wardrobe, or make drastic changes to achieve my own look. After getting my colours done and having Christie raid my closet, I began looking at everything differently. From clothing to shoes and accessories, to pairing pieces together I never would have imagined doing, I now dress with confidence knowing that I can look good and be totally comfortable in a style that expresses who I am. Within my existing wardrobe, Christie was able to highlight what worked, and helpfully pointed out some things to avoid. As someone who spent years on television, it was always important to have a put-together look that was both professional and expressive of my own style. But the things I’ve learned from Christie have transcended every aspect of my life. Shopping now has never been more fun. I’m more conscious of what I buy, based on being able to zone in on my colours and flattering fits. I can immediately identify what I know won’t work or what to pass on. Since meeting with Christie, I have lost count of how many times friends, family, coworkers, even complete stangers, have come up to me and commented on my “well put-together look”. Hearing that never gets old!What’s so great about Christie is that she not only brings an in-depth knowledge and expertise of her field to the table, but always includes elements of fun and flair to her work. She is an absolute dream to work with and be around. Christie’s positivity and caring attitude is infectious and her passion clearly shines through in every thing she does. Let me put it this way. Thanks to Christie, I realize now that it’s not only about buying the right sweater or boots. Nor it it about having the latest fad hanging in my closet. It’s about knowing how to use and maximize what you’ve got, and feel good about it. That’s true style. Please, do yourself a favour and let this woman work her incredible wonders on you. I promise, you will not be disappointed.”

“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 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!”

“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.”

I found Christie through a google search. I didn’t even know her, or know anyone who knew her before I met her, nor did I work with a Stylist before. But I am so glad and grateful that google led me to her, that I was able discern that she was the best fit for me, and that she was phenomenal!  
She answered all my questions with patience and expertise. She is so personable and easy to talk to, and has this great mix of personal style, casual, glam, while having a keen eye for your shape, colour, and respecting YOUR budget and style. She saved me hours of scouring the mall, experimenting, and there were some surprise perks at the mall working with a stylist.
If you’re looking to upgrade your wardrobe, perhaps get ready for a photoshoot, or feel that your closet is full of clothes for different occasions (that you just can’t mix), or pieces that were not quite perfect, then I highly recommend Style Transformation Package with Christie.

“I had the opportunity to be Christie’s client on two occasions. In 2009, when I got my personal colours done and again in 2015 for my wedding. Christie is the best at what she does. Extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her talent. She explains every step of the process answers all questions and gives you tips on how to get the same look on your own. I received many complements on my wedding day on how beautiful I looked, Thank You Christie for making me look flawless on my most important day, my Wedding Day. I have and will continue to refer clients to Christie.”

“Christie was fabulous! She’s worth every penny. Helped achieve a goal I was unable to do on my own. I appreciate her ability to deal with personal issues in ways that made the consultation enjoyable and comfortable.”

“Christie has a natural talent and feel for image. I was never a person that cared much about my outward appearance, but Christie’s warm and approachable character and genuine advice would make any individual, even myself, instantly excited about the way they look. During the colour analysis, I thought I would just be learning about the colours and styles that would suit my body and complexion. During our shopping trip, I thought I would be choosing a couple of functional items for my wardrobe. But my experience ended up being so much more. I feel more in touch with my image and confident in the way I look. I learned that certain colours and styles would enhance my appearance, but more importantly, I can walk into a room or look into a mirror and know that I look good. This confidence couldn’t have come at a better time in my life. I actually enjoy shopping now and learned that it really isn’t that difficult. I know when something is right for me, and I will no longer have a closet full of clothes that I don’t wear. Christie’s practical approach has helped me to make decisions that not only suit my body type and complexion, but also my personality and lifestyle. I learned a lot from you, and your advice has been invaluable to me. Thank you!”

“You are great at what you do, Christie! Thanks to you I have been able to walk in and right out of a store knowing there is nothing for me there. Not only have I saved hours and hours of shopping time, I have saved hundreds and hundreds of dollars by not buying clothes that aren’t right for me. I recommend you to everyone I know.”

“A big giant thank you, you have been amazing to work with from the very first email I sent. My wife is so incredibly happy with the overall services you have provided. The entire experience has been a major confidence booster for her. From a man’s perspective, it has been amazing to watch. Not only does she have a wonderful new wardrobe but knowledge of how / why certain pieces work together and how her body type needs to be taken in account when shopping for new articles of clothing. I was truly amazed with the amount of new pieces my wife was able to find given the budget she gave you. You have seriously done a terrific job !!! Morgen showed me a insta post the other night where you do like 20 outfits with one jacket; seriously unreal stuff!! SOO HAPPY WE FOUND YOU !

 We are so lucky to have found you on our first attempt. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you, you are a true professional. I would recommend you to any shaped person, with any size of budget looking for help update their current look.”
