“Going through the style process with Christie is transformational. I am a mid-fifties professional who felt stuck in a rut with my style – not sure how to dress for my changing body and age, and how to shop for styles of clothing that would flatter and enhance my style. I came across Christie while doing an on-line search. Not only did she fulfill my hopes and expectations, but she exceeded them. I chose the Full Makeover package.
When speaking initially to Christie on the phone and during the first home visit, I knew that I had made the right decision. Christie has a whole set of personal skills that make working with her a pleasure. She is bright, vivacious, funny, positive, and open. In addition, she has extremely strong professional skills and applies them from the first telephone call and onwards. She knows her stuff and steers you with an able hand through showing you your most flattering colours, teaching you how to apply your make up, reviewing your closet, shopping in the stores, and remixing clothing in your closet. She determines your best colours, explains the best styles for your body shape, shows you how to put together items in your wardrobe in new and interesting ways – the list goes on and on. She also teaches you along the way and leaves you with the knowledge and tools so that you can more confidently continue the process on your own- knowing she is merely a text away in case you are in need of some quick advice. She doesn’t impose or try to make you someone that you are not but she does encourage you to be open-minded and to take some risks. She gets to know you and your style and enhances who you already are.
Daily compliments from family, friends, and co-workers are just an added bonus. Hiring Christie was not something that I needed to do. It was something that I wanted to do. It was also something that I was so glad that I did. I plan on collaborating with her again for my spring/summer wardrobe. Working with her made such a difference to my outer appearance, but it is the difference that I feel inside that I value the most. Thank you so much, Christie.”

I first contacted Christie a year ago. Having turned 50 I was looking for a way to re-invent myself. I met with Christie multiple times as she helped me with the difficult task of becoming stylish, yet practical. She confidently and effectively helped me update my entire wardrobe; working as a busy Principal, living on hobby farm with many animals, and being a mother and wife. At all times Christie was warm and kind. Even when I proceeded to try on everything in my closet last year, she made me feel at ease with her professional opinions and comments. Learning about my colours was interesting and eye-opening. Even for a non-shopper that I am, shopping was fun with Christie, as she had pre-selected clothes at each store that made me feel beautiful and sexy.
Since then I have stayed in contact with Christie and gone for one more shopping session to round out my wardrobe. I can honestly say I have worn every single item I purchased, even those that were a tiny bit out of my comfort zone. Mornings are far less stressful as I hear Christie’s voice in my head say, “everything in your capsule wardrobe goes with everything!”
I have received many complements recently and feel very confident. I may not have the body of a 25 year-old anymore but I do have a much better fashion sense, thanks to Christie. It is amazing what her clothes and color selection has done to my sense of self and how I feel about myself. I highly recommend working with Christie and I look forward to more advice and shopping trips with her.

“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!”

“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!”

“My experience with Christie was amazing. I was starting a new job and felt rather insecure about my wardrobe. Though most things still technically fit, I just never really felt great… So I braced myself for a weekend at the mall to try to come up with a work wardrobe. While procrastinating, I came across Christie’s website and couldn’t stop thinking about it. So I sent her an email, and never looked back!! She came over and we did my colours (eye opening!), and went through my wardrobe. What an experience! Next weekend we went shopping, and be warned, once you shop with Christie, you’ll never want to do it on your own again!! Not only was it fun and stress-free, I walked out with a perfect complement to what I had at home. And not only did the clothes fit me better than ever, they were so soft that getting dressed for work is actually so comfy! Christie tracked my budget and made sure that all the clothes were good quality, and none were going to be high maintenance. I can’t say enough good things. The things Christie taught me were eye opening and will stay with me when shopping on my own in the future…though I’m not sure I can ever go without her again. :)”

“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.”

“Christie was lovely to work with and certainly understands style. A thoroughly enjoyable experience and “a must” for anyone who is looking to clear out the old, uncover the great, and find some new ways to making current trends work for you as an individual. As a busy professional, Christie provided an invaluable service by helping me look at my current wardrobe with fresh eyes and offered great suggestions to make my shopping trips easier and more enjoyable.”

“Christie is so easy to get along with….it’s like hanging out with your best friend! She is organized and fun… and she knows her stuff! You won’t be disappointed.”

“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.”
– Lidia D.
“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!”
— Sara F.
“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.”
– Heather S.
“I found Christie to be very knowledgeable, kind, engaging and patient. She was very easy to relate to and was very open to addressing my many questions!”
— Susan R.
“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.”
