The foundational first step in most of what I do is something I am calling the Style Line Analysis. Without it, I could look at the clothes in your closet and have little to no idea whether they would suit you are not. With it (and your measurements), I could pretty much do your shopping for you while you did something else. 🙂

So what is a Style Line Analysis? Basically, it covers the big considerations in putting together an outfit: shape and proportion. From a photo or in-person consultation, I identify your silhouette and proportion considerations; then, give you insight into techniques for creating balance and harmony with your clothes.

In my Spokane personal style consultancy, I require the Style Line Analysis before I do a Closet Consultation or any personal shopping; however, it is also available remotely via email. Introductory pricing for this service is only $45 – less than you were going to spend on clothes this month – 😉 why not hit the pause button and get some clarity first? I can only offer 10 of these this month, so email me today to get on the calendar: rebecca (at) between my peers (dot) com.

If the idea of hiring a personal style consultant still seems strange to you, you may appreciate this post Bridgette Raes wrote last year: What You Need to Know Before You Hire a Fashion Stylist.

Now that I have completed my training as a Personal Stylist, I’d like to put up some posts explaining what it is I do. Spokane readers can reach me at rebecca@betweenmypeers.com to inquire about Color Analysis and Closet Consultations. Most other services are available via email.

About Color Analysis: The system I use has 16 palettes based on temperature, value, and resonance. From those 16 palettes, I can add or subtract individual sticks to create a completely custom color harmony. Your unique palette supports your coloring and your personality.

I realize Color Analysis is a complicated and somewhat controversial topic. I not here to disparage any other system; I just love this one! Fine print: the swatches are custom-made to order, so there is delivery time, and I have you do a little bit of homework ahead of time. 🙂
