This was my review for Charisse Styles who is 100% responsible for my new wardrobe that you’ll be seeing from now on because she basically taught me how to dress myself in the span of 2 hours on Saturday. If you’re a professional woman in Georgia, hire her.

I have never known how to shop nor dress myself, and I’ve gained and lost weight over the past few years, too. So I basically ended up with a wardrobe that was workable, but that I hated. I work in academia and went from being a grad student who wore jeans and t-shirts to trying to put together professional outfits with no fashion sense and a limited budget. I’m a tenured professor now but am sometimes perceived as young and needed help finding clothes to convey my status and education.

Charisse was a God-send. I didn’t know you could put a belt on a dress that hangs off you and make it instantly better. I didn’t know that you could get the feeling of hiding in a cardigan but look stylish by getting a jacket with structure. I didn’t know how to do any of this affordably either. So I am incredibly grateful that I found a local stylist who doesn’t charge anywhere near what her time is worth. So I not only recommend you hire her, but I recommend tipping her as well.

We emailed about my professional goals, my sizes and measurements, and I told her my clothes budget. She went shopping for me and put clothes on hold at a bunch of stores at Tanger in Pooler. I met her and tried on clothes for about 1.5 hours, got a completely new wardrobe, and then she came back to my house and showed me how I could put all the pieces together along with what I already own.

She took pictures so I’d have a reference catalog too, which has been so helpful. I am privileged that I could afford this at a time that was so necessary for a new phase in my career as I have stepped into an interim administrative position. But I also know Charisse can work with any budget. She finds deals out of nowhere and has all the coupons. I made an investment in a wardrobe overhaul, but she works with what you already have and can seriously work with whatever you want to spend on clothes. When you hire her, you’re paying not only for her vast knowledge of fashion, but also her background in logistics.

Last Saturday was the most efficient and enjoyable shopping trip I have ever had. Charisse empowers women to feel comfortable and confident in their clothes and I absolutely cannot recommend her highly enough. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
