Our job is to help you love your clothes and your closet
WHO AM I: Before I tell you who I am, let me start by telling you who I am not. I am not the person who is going to put you in clothes that like you, but you don’t like back. I will not force you to buy clothes that are out of your budget (in fact I LOVE a good deal). I will not criticize your past clothes choices or put you in styles without telling you why they work.</p> <p>I will however, help you find your ideal style and show you exactly which shapes and cuts to try and which to avoid. I will also help you shop for a closet of clothes that will multitask flawlessly so you never have to worry about what to wear (or how to wear it).</p> <p>WHY I DO WHAT I DO: When I started Your Shop Girl in 2008 I wanted to ensure it reflected my style philosophy; it is simple, we focus on educating and empowering you to help curate a closet full of clothes you will actually wear and love.</p> <p>BACKGROUND: It all started over a decade ago when in an effort to combine my instincts with instruction once I completed my undergrad at the University of Toronto, I became a graduate of George Brown’s Image Consulting program. My thirst for knowledge lead me to the centre of fashion itself – Paris, France, where I studied at the Sorbonne University; then onto New York to conquer the Fashion Institute of Technology
WHO I AM: With four kids and a busy household, I am someone who understands the importance of being able to get<br /> out the door quickly while still feeling my best. I believe that looking good is not about age, shape, or<br /> budget, it’s about understanding what’s right for you.</p> <p>WHY I DO WHAT I DO: I understand the power of a great outfit to transform how we feel about ourselves. And, more importantly, I love helping women feel fantastic!<br /> Whether you’re shopping for a specific reason, season, event, photo shoot, or you’re just ready for a style<br /> overhaul, I can help you find exactly what you are looking for (and make sure you feel great in it!). It’s all about you, your style, your needs, and your budget.</p> <p>MY BACKGROUND: My previous work experience spans over a decade working in public relations. After taking time off to raise my family, and relocating several times across the country, I decided to pursue my true passion - helping women look and feel their best. I know what it’s like to make multiple transitions, and how our style evolves and<br /> changes to reflect who we are at every stage in our life.<br /> I re-entered the work force as a personal stylist in the high-end retail industry prior to joining the Your<br /> Shop Girl team. With more than 10 years in the industry, Suzanne has passed along her extensive<br /> knowledge through intensive one-on-one training in all aspects of image consulting. I’ve also completed<br /> online training with UK-based members of the International Federation of Image Consultants. I have an<br /> honours degree in English Literature from the University of Western Ontario, a post-graduate degree in<br /> Corporate Communications.
Teri-Ann is fantastic at helping you understand what works best for your body shape and colour. While she is our resident men's clothing expert, she is also equally amazing at sourcing pieces for women looking to 2.0 their wardrobe.
Jannah specializes in Closet Cleanses and putting on incredible style parties! She has an incredible eye for colour and an innate ability to make you feel at ease immediately.
Suzanne is truly remarkable in her ability to find clothes that fit perfectly and not only look great but also make me feel great. All of my interactions with her have left me feeling optimistic and excited about my style which is saying something since I detest shopping.
Suzanne included great advice on budget, not overspending and practical guidelines for buying (and when not to buy). I left the presentation feeling inspired to put more effort into pulling together outfits that make me feel confident and happy.
I really detest shopping and always have felt like a "deer in the headlights" in stores or worse malls. Suzanne's systematic approach has been therapy for me.
With a quick questionnaire and a simple activity done on my own time in advance of our shopping trip, Suzanne helped me redefine my style and determine what would best flatter my shape. Not only did she quickly and confidently guide me through stores and clothing racks, she refused to let me settle for anything that made me feel less than fantastic.
Suzanne has helped me change my entire wardrobe. She has helped me with my shirts, ties, shoes, jeans and everything else. It has changed my life! I receive compliments about my wardrobe all the time, and it is all because of Suzanne!
If you're feeling stuck or bored or in transition with your wardrobe, I highly recommend talking to Suzanne! She is so down to earth, knowledgeable, thorough, supportive, and respectful of individual style.
She anticipated exactly what I needed for the office and out and about in town and in 3 hours together we were done. After a quick coffee, with clothes already set aside at a number of shops, there was no stress, no hassle, just good advice, a bit of learning for me and some choice pieces.
Suzanne helped me develop a capsule wardrobe MY way, after returning to work after almost a decade as a SAHM. Everything she helped me pick fit perfectly, and looked amazing on me! I didn't know shopping could be this way.
I have always LOVED fashion and style..so when I met with Suzanne, i was sure she would put me in certain looks..I was FLOORED by her new insights into how I really could and SHOULD be dressing to flatter my profession, goals and my body.
Here’s how we show you how to love your style and your clothes
Once you book you will receive a questionnaire to fill out. This tells us where you would like to meet and what we should focus on during your session.
We meet! And shop or cleanse your closet. But no matter what we are doing we are helping you understand why we are doing it!
We send you a summary with all the information we went over! Have questions? That is what step four is for...
We follow up to ensure you are staying on track and to go over any questions you have. Once you are a Your Shop Girl client once, you are a client for life.
