Clothes do not make the person

What you wear won’t change the immutable characteristics that make up who you are: your intelligence, your capacity for compassion, your sense of humor.

But what you wear does speak volumes about you. In a world where 90% of communication is nonverbal, Miuccia Prada says, “Fashion is instant language.” For too many of us, our clothing is telling the wrong story.

Let’s invest in you! On your timeline and within your budget. Here’s how it works.


A 3-hour session, we deep dive into your closet, taking stock of its contents. I’ll help you edit your wardrobe, identifying what works for your body and your life and ditching what doesn’t. Each piece is critically assessed for your shape and lifestyle, focusing on fit and function. We’ll shop from your own closet, putting items together in new ways and providing fresh options with clothes you already own. Finally, we’ll look for what’s missing: essential, quality items that are key to making your current wardrobe versatile and cohesive.


Armed with a list that I'll uniquely create for you and a lifetime of practical know-how, we’ll tackle the mall in this 3-hour session. Whether it’s at your favorite stores or retail recommendations from me, I’ll walk you through my no-fail strategies to smart shopping, even from the sale rack. I’ll teach you to shop for your shape, emphasizing proportion, fit and versatility. We’ll build your shopping savvy with a few simple principles and hands-on instruction. What you’ll learn from me will save you time and money. The result: You’ll look great and feel great.


Red carpet moments aren’t reserved for celebrities. Every woman has special occasions where she needs to look and feel like a rock star. Maybe it’s a special wedding, class reunion or holiday party. Or perhaps it’s a professional situation: a big presentation, a meeting with an important new client, the interview for your dream job. From shoes to clothing to jewelry, I can help you put the whole look together.

My by-the-hour services are also a great fit if you want a refresher session in a new season. Or just company plus savvy input on a stock-up trip to the mall.


Based out of Minneapolis, I primarily work with clients in the Twin Cities metro area. Extended travel is available at the client’s expense.


Need to stage an intervention? Is there a wife, mother, daughter, sister or friend in your life who would love a wardrobe remodel?

A gift of my services is the perfect way to say, “I care about you.”

“Katherine’s ‘essential items list’ has been fabulous and I’ve referred to it many times since our shopping day. With Katherine’s help, I really discovered my own personal style.”
