Originally from Atlanta, GA I’ve lived in NYC for all of my adult life. As early as I can remember, I have always loved art, design, and fashion. My Grandmother worked at a high end boutique in Boston, and my other grandmother was a hat buyer so style is in my blood!
NYC was calling and after college, I moved up north to attend a graduate program at Sotheby’s in American Fine and Decorative Art. I worked at Sotheby’s for a few years, designed jewelry for a while, eventually made my way to Brooklyn and never looked back.
I soon noticed there was a lack of moderately priced boutiques and I, like many others, wanted to shop locally. My decorative art background and love of fashion came together in a new way. My business partner and I opened GOLDY+MAC filling a niche in the Brooklyn shopping scene. We dressed thousands of women (a few men) over the years and loved being a part of date night, a job interview, drinks with friends, etc etc. GOLDY+MAC became an institution and we were proud to have created a boutique experience with excellent customer service. We opened four more locations: two in Brooklyn, one in Manhattan, another on Long Island.
We had many successful years but the retail economy changed and after 12 years of business we decided to close our doors.
I’ve now turned my attention to incorporating all of my creative, aesthetic, and business experience to the next phase of my career as a stylist. I bring to the table excellent taste, creative vision, and a fun, friendly, flexible, and positive attitude. I’m extremely attentive to and aware of my clients needs, requests, lifestyles, and budgets. I love working individually but also being part of a network and community of busy people trying to juggle their busy lives while I take one thing off their plate.
I love helping people look and feel their best whether they are going to a party, to a job interview. or just for running errands. We all are juggling so much and often neglect taking care of ourselves. Let me help you take style off your list of things to get to!
I can bargain shop for you or determine whether it's worth it to splurge. Sometimes it's worth spending extra on a luxury item, and other times getting a deal on a trendy item is the way to go.
I'm familiar with many different brands and where to
go for the best fit and most flattering styles.
Price: $100 an hour, 2 hour minimum. If styling in person, extra half hour charged for travel time within NYC.
When I revamp closets, I help clients with some tough love, and get rid of the clutter and items that don't make them look their best. Standardizing hangers, grouping by category and color, and not having too much redundancy will greatly improve your closet's precious real estate! You will have more space, less clutter (physically and mentally), and make getting ready in the morning so much less challenging. I can even help you find new ways to wear what you hold on to.
Price: $325 for two hours. If more time is required/desired, hourly styling rate is charged.
TRUNK SHOWS AND SHOPPING EVENTS
I also love having shopping events which can be tailored to a particular group/occasion.
I sell a curated selection of affordable clothing and accessories on Instagram @goldy195.
I think of myself as providing full service style between personal styling, hosting events, revamping closets, selling items on social media, or having shopping events. I love working with clients to help them look and feel their best. I've dressed and styled thousands of women over the years. Wanting to look stylish isn't superficial, it lifts spirits and opens doors.
