  • What is Image Consulting and who is it for?
    When you hire Vallozzi Styling as your image consultant, you will have a professional personal stylist help you develop the way you visually present to the world. Image consulting is for anyone who desires to present in a consistent, specific way. This includes but is not limited to a new position at work, public speaking, headshots, events, website photos, and being the face of a company, business, or organization.
  • Who needs a personal stylist?
    You need a personal stylist if you: Do not know what looks good on you or how to put complete outfits together. If you are too busy to shop or hate shopping. If you buy clothes and never wear them. If you are trying to develop an image but are struggling to figure out what that looks like for you.
  • What kinds of Special Events can you help me with?
    Special Event styling includes but is not limited to galas, weddings, cocktail parties, vacations, themed parties, holiday parties, bar/bat mitzvahs. Check out some special events we've styled here.
  • My closet is very small and cramped, should we still have a closet consultation?
    Yes! We travel with collapsible wardrobe racks and can find space in your home to set it up, pull items out of your closet, and do a thorough evaluation.
  • I hate everything in my closet, should we still have a closet consultation?
    We believe that starting in your closet is valuable. Often there are pieces in your closet that are working for you, and we can use those garments as building blocks to move your look in a new direction. It is also very important to learn what is not working for you and why, and the contents of your closet will reveal that information. However, if you truly want a fresh start, we can skip the closet and go straight to a personal shopping service.
  • What is it like to shop with Rachel?
    Rachel has been a personal stylist shopper for 15 years. She knows exactly where to find what you need. She is organized, calculated, focused and efficient. But, most importantly, she LISTENS to you. Rachel asks a lot of questions and wants to honor your authentic self expression. She will never force you into a garment or image that does not feel right to you.
  • Do you have any brand affiliations or partnerships?
