Isabel has been so amazing to work with. I had three closets overflowing with clothing. I was so tired and stressed from looking at it and having nothing to wear. She helped not only downsize 40% of my wardrobe, but I loved how she helped me style so many new outfits. Isabel listened to my needs and supported me through the process. She is tremendously talented, kind, and empathetic. I highly recommend everyone to work with her.
