Gift Guide: Personalized Fashion Consultation
What you hear from your fave fashionista or fashionisto: "I have nothing to wear!" What you see: a closet stuffed and overflowing with anything but. Time to call in Visual Therapy.
Joe Lupo & Jesse Garza will bravely take on any unwieldly wardrobe, uncover the Styletype lurking within (Classic, Chic, Whimsical, Bohemian, Avant Garde), and further nail down the Colortype: Sun, Moon, Earth, or Star. Throughout the process they'll apply their professional fashion stylist sensibilities to weeding out the unnecessary excess, identifying what's missing, and generally bestowing on your fave clotheshorse a serene, sharply-edited closet that actually projects their most authentic self through a savvy combination of style, color, and spirit.
"We have a philosophy of dressing that we like to call Cake versus Frosting," they explain. "The cake of your wardrobe—no matter what your style—should consist of a strong foundation of simple, well constructed garments in neutral colors that flatter you. The frosting is where you add your personal signature, where bright pop-colors turn a blah outfit into a LOOK," they explain. "The colors you wear dictate how light reflects off your face, eyes, hair and skin - so color can help make the most of who you are, or undermine your natural good looks. Think of the colors you wear as your own personal light filters. You're the star of your own movie!"
A consultation and day of service with Visual Therapy starts at $3600 - contact info at Visual-Therapy.com.
To wile away the inevitable time on the waitlist, be sure to include a copy of their first book, Nothing to Wear? A Five-Step Cure for the Common Closet which explains how to identify and develop personal style from the inside out, along with their latest book Life in Color: The Visual Therapy Guide to the Perfect Palette--for Fashion, Beauty, and You! which discusses the science of color and how it applies to a real-life wardrobe.
