Q: What makes your personal styling consultancy different from the others?
A: A-line's founder believes that just because you are not a celebrity or wealthy, that clients still deserve to look & feel their most confident. We offer expert services at a competitive price and we specialize in finding quality items at reasonable prices to accommodate the budgets of our clientele - real, everyday hardworking men & women.
We also give back to our community with our not for profit organization, A-line Foundation (www.alinefoundation.org). We ask that our clients donate their resuable & unwanted pieces to benefit our program to makeover women in need.
Q: What type of clientele has A-line Style Services worked with?
A: Most of our frequent clientele includes professionals in the corporate, real estate education, and media sectors as well as entrepreneurs, new mothers, and those wanting a style revamp to boost their confidence. We also work with designers, models, photographers and producers for photo and video shoots. Tamika has styled for television and celebrities, but loves helping everyday people feel great about their image & style.
Q: How do you determine what looks fit each client?
A: After completing the initial no-cost consultation, we ask our clients to complete a “Pre-Styling Questionnaire” which allows us to tap into your lifestyle, personality, body type, and motivations for shopping in the past. This allows us to personalize our services to fit a client’s needs & desires. Tamika's many years of experience equips her with the style know-how to style each client complimenting every aspect of their lives.
Q: What can a personal shopping/styling client expect from a wardrobe consultation?
A: Firstly, our clients can expect personalized, one-on-one service as well as professional advise that teaches our clients how to better shop for themselves. In turn, allows clients to save time dressing every morning, save money (not buying items that do not add to your wardrobe/look), and making your closet a “stress-free zone”. We also call each client within 48 hours to ensure that you are satisfied with our services and/or purchases. If you are not satisfied, we can return or exchange the items at no additional charge.
Q: What are some common dilemmas your clients face?
A: Lots! Here are some of the main style issues our clients turn to us with:
-Clients that lack the time of simply despise shopping
-Clients that are not sure how find stylish, pulled together looks that can be mixed & matched to accomodate thier busy lifestyles
-Clients that need help shopping for clothing best suited for their body type, lifestyle, or professional goals
- Many clients have a closet full of clothing, but still feel they have nothing to wear
Q: Do you keep a portfolio of clients you have styled I can see?
A: Tamika has made it easy for her clients and potential clients to view her personal style and work though this website (before & afters, videos on homepage and Fashion Styling Portfolio), her style blog on ChicagoShopping.com and her style collages on Polyvore.
