“I am in a business where perception is key and the first impression could be the last. I had become overwhelmed with this idea of always looking my best that I lost my sense of style and shopping became a task instead of fun. Thank goodness Laurie came to my rescue. She is a phenomenal image consultant who knows everything about what shapes are best, what colors are ideal and how to pull it all together. She is honest and her fun energy is contagious especially out shopping together. She makes what was once a chore a fun outing and the things she finds are amazing! Laurie helped me rebuild my wardrobe and, I must say, a bit of my self-confidence. She will always be my go to girl for all things style.”

“Laurie Brucker is the consummate image consultant, personal stylst and style mentor. She has an innate understanding of style that goes well beyond what you put on your body. Laurie understands that it’s about the WHOLE picture because the clothes she styles you with bring out the REAL you. The one you always thought was there, and had yet to grasp. Laurie knows how to create your total package with ease, fun and sass. She gets the highest recommendation from me.”

“While some people have an eye for talent, Laurie has an eye for style. I was trapped in what felt like a lose lose battle with my clothes and she was able to help me make the most out of my closet (which I thought was impossible) and refill it with pieces that were both trendy, practical and versatile. Laurie made me feel comfortable right away and with her vast background in fashion it was easy to let my barriers down and trust her. Laurie helped me explore my fashion possibilities and be more comfortable in my own skin. Her style tips will ring in your head even after your last consultation and before you know it you’ll be “putting a belt on it” without a second thought. Now, for the first time, I’m excited to get dressed, even if it’s just a Tuesday.”

“One day I stumbled upon one of Laurie’s YouTube videos where she was talking about style. I loved her energy and her upbeat positive vibe. I was recently single, in my late 40s and decided it was time for me to do something for myself that I had always wanted to do. As a child, I lived in uniforms in the day and tights and leotards for ballet class at night. I had never had a good sense of style. So I decided it was time, and I hired Laurie to clean my closet out and go shopping with me. A long deserved treat to myself. My main goal was to find age appropriate clothing that I felt pretty, sexy and fashionable in. With her expertise, it soon became clear what my style was evolving into. With the pieces of clothing and accessories we bought, it made so many amazing outfits. I realize now, that before I met Laurie, I spent more money on the wrong clothes that didn’t even make me feel good about myself . Laurie actually saved me money in the long run.
Now when I go out, I have the confidence that I’m in style. I feel pretty and I get compliments again. Even my former boyfriend complimented me on my outfit which I was shocked, since he hadn’t commented about what I looked like in seven years. Because of Laurie, I’m looking at clothes and fashion differently. When I see someone wearing something I like, I compliment them instead of just thinking they look nice or liking what they are wearing. And voila, I just made a new friend! Laurie changed my entire outlook on life and because of her help I feel pretty again.”
“Laurie really does deliver on her promise. She helped me with a closet sweep to discover my own personal style and the confidence I never knew I had. I use to stress out figuring out what to wear for work or a date — but Laurie’s totally fun attitude changed that! Her natural talent has also taught me how what you wear and how you wear it really can bring success to both your personal and professional life. It is the best investment I have ever made!”

“Laurie has been a pivotal player in my career and success. Through our working relationship, she has taken the time to find out, 1- What my personal style is, 2- What cuts and lines suite my body type best, and 3- What my professional style is. She helped me bridge my personal style with my professional style and gave it wings and flare. As an artist, my look needs to be consistent and uniquely me. She worked with me, not with what she thought should be me. Yet, she still guided my style toward what was the most effective and appropriate based on an event, based on current trends, and based on what best suited me. She is like my style therapist fairy godmother and keeps me continually on track with my look day in and day out. Thank you Laurie B Style!”

“Laurie is amazing. She has helped me “shop my closet” to rediscover how to wear things I already own in a new way. She has inspired me to explore my personal style and try new things. Laurie’s expertise and the changes she has made to my style have helped build my confidence which in turn has brought many positive changes to my personal and professional life. I would recommend her to anyone looking to make a big change or fine tune their current look. She is incredible.”

“Laurie reinvigorated my style appetite. Thanks to my consultation with Laurie, I am more open minded about fashion. When I shop, I am not afraid to try different kind of things and I try to buy items that the compliment pieces I already own. Most importantly I feel in control, no longer overwhelmed by this monster idea of “Fashion.” Laurie has given me the tools to take real control of my style. This was an amazing experience, but the icing on the cake was the birthday outfit she put together for me. It was a HUGE hit. I looked & felt amazing. Plus, my boyfriend loves my fun and flirty new style. THANK YOU LAURIE!”

“Laurie intuitively and masterfully figured out my personal and professional interests, my personality, my future goals, and of course, my budget, and totally rebooted my fashion sense. She literally went through my entire closet and showed me what clothes work, which ones don’t, and why. Then we went shopping together and she took it to the next level and showed me how to create numerous looks from a few different clothing items. She taught me simple tricks to add some flair and excitement to my wardrobe. The best part is that afterwards, she created a written document of all the information we discussed and included pictures of all the outfits! Now I know the right sizes to buy when I go shopping, I know the right styles to look for and the colors that fit my body type and skin tone. If I ever need some inspiration, I can just reference the pictures she took.
When all is said in done, Laurie will show you how to think “style” and she’ll give you the tools to improve your sense of style, and ultimately change your life. After my experience working with her, I feel much more confident when I’m in public, or hanging out with friends and family, or attending a business meeting, a party, or professional mixer. And to be honest, I feel like I dress a lot better than most of guys out there! I would recommend Laurie for personal wardrobe consultations to anyone, in a heart beat. It doesn’t matter what you do or who you are. If you get the chance to work with Laurie, just do it. It will change your life!”

Before I met Laurie, my idea of fashion was which color of ExOfficio shirt I should wear to the office that day. Then Laurie did some video work for our fashion web site and took me out shopping. WOW! There’s nothing like a shopping consultation with Laurie. Not only is she energetic and so much FUN, she knows exactly how to find the right clothes, the right styles, the right colors, and most importantly the right fit that makes me look and feel awesome! Beyond all the compliments I’ve received, people have asked me if my new clothes were tailor-made because of their look and fit, yet they were all off the rack. Thank you Laurie!
