Wardrobe AuditTo better understand how I can help you and your individual “style”, I perform a wardrobe audit. During this process I personally visit your home and both you and I will comb through the items in your closet. This “audit” can be as intensive as you would like, but I always find the more detailed we get the, the easier it is to get a sense of how I can help. The purpose of this exercise is to give me a better understanding of your current style, what fits and what does not. By the end of this exercise, I will have a strong sense of how I can create a tailored style that fits your wants and needs and ultimately makes you feel the most confident. While we go through your closet, we will also identify clothes that no longer fit, items that may need to be replaced and updated, pieces that could be tailored to fit your body and style better, while also allowing us to identify clothing that can be donated to those in need. The goal of this exercise is not to tell you to “get rid of everything”, rather, I want to identify how we can best enhance what you currently have by updating current pieces so that we can be thoughtful with future purchases. I want your closet/wardrobe to work for you and your confidence, not the other way around. The wardrobe audit can also be done virtually across the world. The Wardrobe Audit ranges anywhere from 1-3 hours.
Shopping TripI find it beneficial to take all of my clients on a personal shopping trip. The goal of this trip is not to buy anything but to try new stores, and new styles, while also having a ton of fun! This also allows me to observe your shopping habits and provide any useful feedback that I can. Many of my clients tell me that they are scared to go shopping, dislike it, or feel like they don’t know exactly what they are doing. My shopping trips are aimed at relieving any stress or pressure you may feel about shopping for yourself, and show you that this process can be enjoyable and actually really fun! I continually have clients contact me after purchasing one of my style packages to tell me how much more confident they feel when shopping. I love it! I take all of my clients to stores that will fit their needs, but will also take you out of your comfort zone by going into new stores, and even trying on pieces and/or outfits that you might not normally try on your own. This trip is designed to teach you how to shop, put clothing options together, learn what colors work best for you, what size, what fit, and all of the other tips and tricks that I have personally picked up over the years. This is a great time to ask questions and absorb as much information as possible! Shopping can take multiple hours depending on the wants, needs, and oftentimes stamina of the client.
Personal ShoppingWhat is personal shopping? Well, that can be hard to define, but let me try! I help you find, purchase, and bring you the right clothes and outfits, styling them in a way that will bring out the most confident “you”. There are several reasons why my clients request personal shopping. The first has to do with time - some of my clients do not have the time to go to into the store, hunt down the items you want, and then return the items that don’t fit or work out. I have also found that after a wardrobe audit, and often times after our 1:1 shopping trips, my client understand that I have a good pulse on what items they would like and need. Whatever your reason, I am here for you! Personal shopping can be tailored to your specific needs. You can invite me along on your shopping trip to offer advice, make outfit suggestions, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t want someone fun to shop with? This is a great time to put into practice the lessons you learned during our first shopping trip! Or, if you are a seasoned shopper, I can take your measurements and hunt down the newest outfits for you. This option keeps your wardrobe looking fresh and up-to-date. With my in-depth knowledge on your likes and wants I am better prepared to find the right clothing item(s) for you at the right time! Whether I am out shopping for myself, for another client, or specifically for you, personal shopping is a great addition to any of your fashionable needs! The best part… I find the items, bring them to you, and will even return the items you decide are a no go.
Savvy ShoppingDo you like shopping but live on a budget? Have you ever purchased an amazing piece of clothing only to have it go on sale the following week? I know I definitely fit this criterion as do many of my clients! Being price conscious when shopping is extremely important but oftentimes hard to do—especially when you find that shirt you have had your mind on forever! The Savvy Shopping Training is an hour-long course that I have designed to teach you how to keep your hard-earned cash in your pocket, while also stocking your wardrobe full of your favorite brands, styles, and go-to pieces. I developed this course after hearing hundreds of similar questions from my clients and having success in my own shopping endeavors. My tried and proven techniques are a hit with anyone that takes this course and all the techniques are free! You might ask, what is the “value” in this training? Recently, I worked with a client who was specifically trying maximize discounts and coupons to purchase a brand-new wardrobe. We researched and identified all of the items he was looking for, totaling over $4,000! After applying a few of my tips and tricks, we were able to purchase all of the items for $1,500…a savings of 62.5%! What? Who does that? Not only does this training save you money, but it also teaches you how to recreate catalogue-expensive outfits that fit within your own personal budget. Although challenging, recreating outfits to match our budget can be fun, invigorating, and so rewarding—especially when your friends think you paid hundreds (but we both know you just shopped savvy)!
Virtual ConsultingIs the Denver metro area too far away for you? Does your location prevent you from meeting with me in person? Do you have limitations beyond your control? This is not a problem for me at all! 100% of the services I offer can be tailored and adjusted to meet the needs of the client and can even be done virtually (think Facetime, Skype, etc…)! The only thing required from you is an internet connection and a decent camera – your smart phone works perfectly. We can do a wardrobe audit, shopping trip, personal shopping, and the Savvy Shopping Training all from the comfort of your home, computer and/or smart phone! I am available and absolutely love to assist anybody and everybody, no matter your situation, location or personal style! Please feel free to reach out with any needs or modifications that you might need so that we can make you feel the most confident and successful that you have ever felt!
Virtual LookbookVirtual story-telling has gotten so much easier with technology and that story-telling has direct benefits for you! I personally design and create a 1-of-a-kind lookbook that you are able to use as a stead-fast guide when you are out shopping or when you need help and suggestions for planning different wardrobe options! After a phone consultation or the wardrobe audit, I will put together a lookbook of 3-5 outfits that I believe will be well suited/tailored to you and your personal style! The lookbook acts as a virtual “store” providing you with the brand, style, and pricing (along with tips and tricks to find the best price and fit) for you and your budget. This is a collaborative effort requires direct feedback and input from you, the client. The lookbook allows you to comment and add suggestions so that I can edit the lookbook until we hit on a style that you are completely satisfied with. My goal is to always make you feel as confident as possible, and the lookbook works in all settings whether we are doing virtual consulting, wanted virtual personal shopping, or just needed some guidance on your next shopping trip! Together, we will tailor this lookbook to your wants and needs!
“Spencer was great! I’m a middle-aged software engineering manager. I used to look like a middle-aged software engineering manager. But, I used to hate how I looked in pictures and on bluejeans/slack calls. Spencer worked with me to make incremental, affordable changes that had an immediate change on how I looked and felt. I’m so much more comfortable than I was! I looked like I’ve lost 20 pounds.”
— David, R., Wardrobe Consulting
“Spencer was wonderful. I recently lost weight and got a new job. I needed to update/replace my wardrobe and had no clue as to where to even start. I get confused and overwhelmed at malls and when shopping for clothes in general. I never know what fits or what colors work. Spencer was patient, helpful and positive throughout our entire experience. Spencer made the most of our time and was affordable - which is a big deal to me. He gently encouraged me to step outside my comfort zone by his compliments and positive reinforcement. I think Spencer taught me what to look for and made me more fashion/style conscientious from this point moving forward. I can’t recommend Spencer enough for anyone looking for help with style, fit and how to shop.”
— Ryan M., Wardrobe Consulting
“I hired Spencer to help my daughter polish her professional look and she is delighted! Spencer was wonderful to work with in every way. He spent time evaluating her wardrobe, giving style suggestions, and taking her on a shopping trip. She had a blast and is now feeling very confident about her style as well as shopping for additional wardrobe items in the future. I cannot recommend Spencer highly enough. He’s professional, fun, and very sweet. You will not be disappointed with your experience!”
— Shirley C., Wardrobe Consulting
“I have been working with Spencer for a few months now and he is amazing, very helpful and really inspired me in so many ways, he is a good listener and a very open-minded person... we really had a good fit and I feel really comfortable talking to him. He helped me build up my self-esteem, he makes me feel important and always encourage me to think more on the positive side of life. He is a text away if you needed him that’s one thing I like about working with Spencer.”

“Very patient, informative, enthusiastic, and positive coach. Very good person to help you reenter the job market, and find your strengths again.”

“I was stressed because I am getting married in an outdoor wedding on June 20, 2020. We had been planning since last November but I didn’t get my attire together before the country locked down due to the pandemic. Then, we were not sure whether or not we would have to postpone. We waited.
Our governor began reopening our state in late April but most businesses didn’t reopen. Time passed. One of our parents had a major health scare during late March, so that factored into us deciding to move ahead as planned.
When I began looking for my suit, I saw most things weren’t open so I looked for someone to help. I found Spencer. He was so economical. He surpassed expectations when he offered up and extra look. He had direct links to every piece in every outfit.
I was able to solve it quickly with his help. I would spun my wheels for hours and days without his help...especially in this environment.
He’s so talented and personable.
Thank you Spencer!”

“The outfit combination were amazing. I really liked the effort put by Spencer into the look book..”
— Milind, B., Wardrobe Consulting
“I’d been trying for weeks to find an outfit for a very important TV interview, but had no luck. I have a body that’s hard to fit, as I’m petite but plus-sized. I contacted Spencer in a panic as time was running out fast before my interview and I had nothing to wear. Spencer was not only the first person to respond to my Thumbtack request, he was the ONLY professional to contact me...I guess no one else wanted to work with a plus-sized gal. Despite the COVID-19 lockdowns, Spencer relentlessly searched for outfits online that I could order. And when those online items didn’t work out, he personally drove to Castle Rock to help me shop for a last minute outfit at a major retailer. He helped me put together a camera-worthy look that I could feel good and confident in.
Spencer is not only professional and responsive, he is kind, compassionate, and patient with even hard-to-fit people like me. I look forward to using Spencer’s talents in the near future as I continue to lose weight and get more opportunities for TV appearances.”
