Welcome! I’m Holly, a style and wardrobe consultant. In short, I fix broken wardrobes. I work with you to bring your clothing into alignment with who you are, and who you feel you are meant to be.

With a background in theatrical costume design, knitwear design for handknitters, and a penchant for wardrobe challenges, I bring a unique perspective to personal style.

Your clothes can either haunt you – constricting, baggy, frumpy, off color, pinching, itchy, lackluster, fit for the person you were not the person you are.

Or help you – feel fully alive, confident, at ease in your skin.

What would your day look like, if the only thought you had about your clothing was “damn! I look good”?

Let’s make that happen.

Holly is an amazingly supportive teacher, mentor, and guide. She’s not going to try and shove you into a system or a style or a wardrobe that fits her agenda. She wants you to feel great being YOU. That support and encouragement without a hint of bias is absolutely priceless. I wish there were a million Hollys, and they all taught in the public school system.
