Boutique Style VIP 

Is a 6 week course to help you achieve your dream wardrobe and style. 

Strategically build your wardrobe and style to reflect who you are and what you want in life. 

Change your style, change your life.

I had a closet problem.  

Despite having racks of clothes, I routinely (daily!) lacked for something to wear.  

I’d want to wear a particular item, and couldn’t locate it in the dark, crowed jungle of tops, dress, belts and sweaters in my closet.  

I’d forget what I owned. And then buy the same thing again.  

Ii ’d store like things together. That’s organizing, right? Except when the commonality is, any clothing goes in the closet. It doesn’t work if some things are out of season, don’t fit, need pressing or repair.  

I’d felt I’d lost my sense of style. The reality was I’d lost my grip on what I owned and how I stored it.  

And then, one day, I decluttered my closet, sorted it, donated stuff and discovered that my style was right there, in the closet. Now I’m building a closet full of clothes that fit me, my lifestyle and my personal style. Getting dressed is fun again.  

Want to learn more about how I decluttered my closet and got my style back?  

Go from a closet full of nothing to wear to a closet with always something to wear.  

If you can’t find, you can’t wear it.  

A decluttered closet is the first step to feeling good about your wardrobe and style.  

When you feel put together, effortlessly chic, and happy with your wardrobe you feel more confident and empowered.  

It all starts with your closet.  

I realized I could help other women with their closet, wardrobes and style and that's why I created my signature course, Boutique Style.

Can you relate any of these common feelings regarding your clothes closet? 

Hello, I'm Susan McDonald!

All this experience has been a fantastic foundation for helping women understand the power of looking their best to live their best life. 

A life long sewing enthusiast, I knows a lot about well made clothing and the importance of quality fabrics, fit and styling pieces. 

I've read all the books on personal style, curating a wardrobe that reflects who you are, closet organization and shopping strategies so you can look and feel your best, every day.

Everyone can have a well organized closet that serves them and achieve fabulous style on any budget. One of my favorite resourses is shopping second hand at thrift and consignment stores!

Feeling good about your closet wardrobe and style is a form of self care. You deserve to look good and feel good.

Module 1: Collect the facts

We'll work together to figure out where you are currently at with your waredrobe and style. This is done with a series of selfies, and a questionaire to find out what's holding you back and set a road map for where you'd like your wardrobe go and what your personal and professional goals are.

Module 2: Find your style

Together we'll determine your body shape, best colors and clothing styles that will be most flattering. I'll coach you on where to find style inspiration, and how to apply to your style and life. We will use Pinterest, and hone in your styles and looks. You'll write a style mission statement to help you stay on track so that you are building a cohesive wardrobe that works together.

Module 3: Clothing and accessories editing

This is the big closet edit. We will go through all your clothing and accessories to determin what stays and what goes. Only things that look good, feel good on, and are in good condition stay in the wardrobe. We will sort out things to be: donated, tailored, dry cleaned, pressed, washed, de pilled, tossed, etc. Next we will organize your closet and sort your clothing by category. I will make recommendations on organizational tools that can help improve your closet's functionality. If you live in Southern California, this will be conducted in person. Otherwise we will work together virtually via Zoom.

Module 4: Needs

Upon finishing the closet editing step, I'll send you a list of my wardrobe essentials list along with recommendations for key items that are either missing from your wardrobe of would be wardrobe extenders. From there we can rank the needs and the wants and prioritize what will give your the most bang for your buck.

Module 5: Styling

We will meet again, to focus on styling what you have in your closet and any additions that you may have added. The main focus will be to take photos of completed outfits and multiple options so that you can refer to them in the future. I share style tips and tricks to help you create a signature style and look polished and put together for all the professional and personal commitment and activities in your life. You'll flex your style muscle by learning how to wear and style what you already own in your closet. In addition you'll get my top outfit formulas, so that you can learn to build great outfits on your own. If you live in Southern California, this will be conducted in person. Otherwise we will work together virtually via Zoom.

Module 6: Shopping

Working from your budget I'll recommend the best brands and stores to shop at. In addition we'll discuss fit, and how to determine the best size to buy, what's worth tailoring, how to identify well made garments and what's worth splurging on. We'll focus on accessories too and confirm what you should add and how to style them. In addition, I'll share my best thrift store shopping strategies so you can shop second hand clothing and accessories like a pro.
