LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE! – Hiring Jen & Josh literally changed my life!
I am a new mom who owns her own business - needless to say I have little time or patience to go shopping! I turned 30, my body and lifestyle have changed since having a baby - I was wearing yoga pants to work everyday! My lack of clothing was affecting everything I did - I dreaded social events & date nights bc I would stare into my closet full of ill fitting, mismatched clothes and complain to my husband, "I have nothing to wear! Nothing Fits!" Not exactly material for a romantic evening out.
Shopping had become a nightmare. I would wait until the very last minute, dash in the mall, baby in tow, between conference calls..I felt like I was spending a lot of money, yet still had nothing to wear!
It had been so long since I felt stylish or pretty....Enter Jen and Josh! They were so helpful, fun, and really listened to me!
I live in Los Angeles - the land of stylists - yet I decided to hire them because they were the only ones that were really down to Earth, yet stylish and could work within my budget. They really spent the time to get to know me and my lifestyle.
I would recommend their services to anyone! I felt like a princess - it was the best money I ever spent (and I know I saved $ since they shopped MANY sales for me!) Jen & Josh helped me find my style again!
Honestly, I feel like a new person. My husband has definitely taken notice! I now look like a stylish 30 year old mom who runs her own business. And that's exactly what I asked for!
Thanks Jen & Josh!
Amazing experience! – This experience has been truly amazing. I had a baby just over a year ago, which means I was pregnant and/or in post-baby body for well over a year...a year of my life where my wardrobe went down the tubes! Because I couldn't fit into most of my clothes, I gave up on buying a lot of clothes and shoes during this time, and as a result found myself a good spring, summer, fall and winter season behind...I had a lot of catching up to do! When I went out shopping for myself, I was overwhelmed with the newer styles - I liked them, but I wasn't sure how to pull them off and I felt like I needed a little bit of everything. I was spending a lot of money, but not getting a great return on what I bought because I continued to stare at the clothes in my closet and feel that I had nothing to wear. Also, given I have a limited budget, I didn't want to spend money on clothes or shoes that weren't versatile and something I truly loved. I needed help!!
Jen and Josh to the rescue. They have been so nice and easy to work with. They quickly took a look at my closet and then evaluated my needs based on the Style Questionnaire and their own review of my wardrobe. In a flash I heard back from them that a new wardrobe had been purchased and was awaiting my review. What a fun process to see a rack of clothes all purchased and tailored for my style and needs! There really wasn't a single piece that I didn't like...the biggest challenge was having to say "no" to some of the pieces for budget reasons - because I truly liked them all. I walked away with a couple armloads of clothes, and a revived sense of style. My husband's jaw literally dropped when I tried on my new clothes for him. I love that I feel like I have greatly enhanced my closet and look - without the stress and time of doing it all on my own. Jen and Josh were able to pick out pieces that worked - and both fit the style I was looking for and fit my body type well. Also, it was very nice working with people who were honest if something didn't work for me or look quite right - that's the feedback I needed to hear.
Every aspect of this experience has been great and I am hoping that my 2010 Mother's Day might bring me another project with Jen and Josh - I think a Spring and Summer line are in order!!
Thank you for everything!
Style, Selectivity and Personalized Service – I lost almost everything to a fire. Putting it back together again is a monumental challenge. I can’t imagine having put together so much clothing this quickly without your help. The process has been fun and you’ve brought many things that are enjoyable to wear. Today I could finally wear the brown paisley sweater, being cool enough outside! I feel really good in it. You and Josh also made me feel good about myself. I have really struggled with the weight I’ve gained these last 2 years. Clothing was a pain to try on or think about. But the two of you were very encouraging and made the process easy. For this time in my life I consider your help a blessing. At any time I would be so pleased to share your warmth and creativity.
Fashion Gurus... need I say more? – These two pack a mean fashion punch! They are by far the best pair I could have worked with on such a personal endeavor. I was about to turn 30 and had the sinking feeling that my closet still resembled that of a high school student's. Never mind the fact that I actually had stuff from high school in my closet, but that's neither here nor there... Jen and Josh made the transition to fashion adulthood so easy and ridiculously fun. They listened to my concerns, went through my clothes and were able to read between the lines with such clarity it was amazing. They brought back such beautiful, well picked items that I still marvel at today. I'll be honest, I was a little nervous about handing over such a important task to two people who don't spend every waking moment with me, but once I saw the things they picked for me I knew I had made the right choice. I don't feel like I'm playing dress up in the clothes they picked, I wasn't pressured to buy things that I didn't feel comfortable in, and most of all, the things they bought have given me a new perspective on clothes. They fit in seamlessly with my style and I continue to find new and fabulous combinations between new and old. I would highly recommend Josh and Jen to anyone interested in getting a fresh start on fashion. They know what they're doing and they do it well, really well.
Thanks Jen and Josh!!!!
Great help with my wife's wardrobe – Hi, I’m MMHW's husband. I just wanted to add that I found Jen and Josh on-line much as you may be doing now and feel very fortunate that we chose to work with them. They were friendly, professional, stayed on budget and have a very good eye. We were in town only for a weekend and they made it work. Molly is happier, more confident and feels better about herself… money well spent.
Great help with my wardrobe – Working with Jen and Josh was fantastic. I was in San Francisco for a weekend while my husband was at a conference. It was my husband’s idea to work with Jen and Josh. Initially I was apprehensive about meeting them because I was worried they would be critical about what I was wearing. That was not the case at all. Their expertise helped me enhance my look and my figure while feeling completely natural. The Style Questionnaire was extremely helpful because it made me think about fashion in a different way. And Jen and Josh interpreted it perfectly. The clothes they pre-picked before I arrived in town were not only right on, but I appreciated that they maximized our time to shop together. And Jen was truly amazing. She made me feel so comfortable and taught me so many things about how to find colors, fabrics and styles that work well with my fair skin and petite body. I was so surprised! Originally we were supposed to work together one day, and Jen offered to work with me the following day, despite her hectic schedule. It was wonderful.
Since working with Jen and Josh, I no longer worry about what I am going to wear. I have been to several important events and at no point did I feel self conscious about my outfit. And the compliments were endless.
Jen and Josh helped me learn how to dress well and I am still surprised by how great I feel. While I may need to ask their advice and I still read their blog, I feel much more confident in what I wear and how to find it. I am so grateful and I would love to work with Jen and Josh again.
Simply the best. – I've been feeling pretty down about myself of late, in part because of a weight gain. The formerly fashionable me found the task of going shopping to be an experience that turned into an "excuse me, where's the ladies room? - I need to sob for about 5 minutes because nothing looks good on me and nothing fits."
I wanted someone who was genuine, sincere, kind yet empathic and honest. And real. Basically, I wanted my therapist to take me shopping.
I contacted Jennifer through her website. She got back to me quickly. I told her I was in dire need of bras that actually fit, good jeans, and something that could go from day to evening.
Jennifer listened, asked what brands I liked and what celebrity's styles I admired and she, most importantly, asked me how much I wanted to spend. When she asked my size, I mumbled, "12, 14, 16? I dunno."
No problem. Jennifer arranged a fitting at Bloomingdale's with the charming Kristina who found bras and shape wear that sucked the right parts in and "put the girls where they should be."
The night before, Jennifer had scoured Bloomingdale's, Macy's, Nordstrom's, Martin + Osa, White House | Black Market, and other stores as well, and had all of the items she had pulled awaiting us when we entered each store (how cool it that?).
At one point I burst into tears because Jennifer had found one of (many) pieces where I looked at myself and thought, "Wow, I forgot that I'm pretty." She gave me a big hug.
Jennifer also had connections at Bloomingdale's to get me a considerable discount. I didn't feel rushed and she sent me a lovely follow-up email that I discovered once I got home.
I can't recommend Jennifer highly enough. No matter your look, weight or style, she gets it and is truly a genuinely warm person. And trust me, I'm a tough cookie - it takes a lot to impress me.
Enhance or Improve Your Wardrobe! – I consider myself to be a pretty good shopper. Not that I keep the economy afloat mind you, but do spend enough to keep the lights on for several city blocks.
Despite my shopping finesse, I'd wanted to have someone come in to take a look at my current wardrobe, see what might be missing, and perhaps even tell me what might not be working any more.
I'd heard of Cabinet d'Envie through a friend, so decided to contact them. Once I completed their survey about my style preferences, influences etc. we set an appointment to have Jennifer and her husband come to my home. Due to some scheduling conflicts, we had to reschedule a few times, but Jennifer was very professional in this regard. Once in my closet and home, we discussed my budget and what I felt I needed to add to my wardrobe. Once I'd given them my budget, they took a little more than a week to find me lots of great pieces which work well with my existing wardrobe.
On our second appointment, all the pieces were placed for me to choose from, and were then tried on to see if they fit. Everything was written down so that I would know what to wear with what for future reference. Jennifer can even create a "look book" for you if needed.
Price-wise, they stayed within my budget, which was really helpful, and their fee (minimum of 3 hours) was well worth the money. I look forward to having them return next season.
