"I needed a wardrobe refresh. I lost 20 pounds and moved back to the States after living abroad. I wanted a wardrobe that reflected who I am now. I also wanted more than "just clothes". I wanted a wardrobe that told a cohesive story about me and reflected my interests, values and personalities on the outside. Maggie listened to me. She took the time to understand my current wardrobe and lifestyle needs and also what was personally important to me. Maggie helped me find the pieces I knew I wanted in my closet, but also helped me play around and think outside the box with options I hadn't considered and ways to infuse my personality and lifestyle into my closet and how I styled what I wore. Maggie helped me change my relationships with my closet and style, making it fun again! She also introduced me to new and independent designers. My friends and colleagues often compliment on my style, saying how my clothes exude my personality - accessible and comfortable, but also unique, playful and classy at the same time. This is exactly what I want my clothes to say about me and Maggie made it happen!"

"I was looking for a dress for a wedding and to update my boring "mom" style for summer. Maggie found me the PERFECT dress for a summer wedding I was attending. She created an entire look to include shoes and accessories, all via Pinterest! We ruled out certain dresses and communicated all via email. It was so easy and Maggie listened to all of my thoughts and suggestions. I've worn this particular dress several other times and I absolutely love it!! I also had Maggie help me update my wardrobe a little bit. I was in need of some more stylish updates to my wardrobe and Maggie knocked it out of the park, along with keeping to a reasonable budget. I'm even thinking about asking her for a Fall wardrobe update!"

"I was looking to improve my work wardrobe for professional wear, and update my casual wardrobe to appear more put together. I learned the importance of accessorizing, and Maggie added at least one piece to each outfit including scarves, earrings, and necklaces. I can now translate that to other outfits and make sure that I include a great accessory every day. Most importantly, the outfits Maggie suggested for me were ones that I would not have selected for myself because I didn't think that I had the "right" body type for it. But it turns out that the right cut of clothing is essential for a flattering outfit, and has boosted my confidence in what I wear. I am so thankful for that! Maggie has a great personality and makes you feel very comfortable. She is very respectful of your time and stays on task. She is punctual, professional, and enthusiastic. I highly recommend Maggie!"

"I was seeking honest advice on fitting and coordinating of pieces in my existing wardrobe, along with recommendations on items that may need to be purchased prior to returning back to work. I wanted to get an objective opinion on what works for me without being pressured to buy clothing/shoes in a store setting. Maggie put outfits together that I did not know worked and gave me great ideas and honest advice on what could be worn for business AND casual purposes. She gave me more confidence in my current fashion choices and helped give me suggestions of how to get the most out of my wardrobe. Maggie has a wonderful eye for fashion and current trends, is sincere, and extremely personable."

"I am preparing to leave the Army after 9 years and needed a professional wardrobe for job interviews and my post-Army career. Maggie helped with my main goal of finding affordable business suits that fit well, but also talked me through fabrics for different seasons. We also discussed shoes and other accessories to ensure I had a complete outfit ready to go. I have my first interview this week and I'm nervous, but thanks to Maggie's help I have one less thing to think about. She arranged everything with the stores in advance so there was a dressing room filled with suits when I walked in and an associate ready to swap things out as needed. The whole thing was efficient and a great experience."

"I wanted to drink mint juleps in style [while at Churchill Downs for the Kentucky Derby]. Maggie used my input to create stylish outfit options for my event. All I had to do was choose! It made my event planning fun and worry-free. Maggie was so easy to communicate with, and she had great intuition in finding outfits that I loved. Her personal touches and charming personality made working with her a great experience."

"I was looking for help finding the perfect outfit to wear to my own rehearsal dinner. I had in mind a cocktail dress with a vintage/20-ish feel to it. Maggie went above and beyond to help me find the perfect rehearsal dinner dress, which to date is still one of my favorite dresses I've ever worn. Not only did she take my style idea and run with it; she also went out of her way to track down a dress in my size that was out of stock everywhere online. I never would have found it without her! Maggie's expertise on sizing helped save us from making ordering mistakes, her advice during our fitting session was invaluable, and her management of the entire process was seamless. Most importantly, I loved the way I felt in that dress on my special night. And, luckily, I have lots of pictures filled with laughter to help me remember that feeling for a long time to come!
Maggie is warm, confident and knowledgeable. Her professionalism is impressive, her ideas are thoughtful and unique, and she is such a genuine pleasure to be around. Go Maggie Paine!!!!"

"Maggie gave me new ideas, easy fixes to work with my current wardrobe. I was able to buy a few new things and transform my look. I now get many compliments about what I'm wearing.
I highly recommend Maggie. She customizes a plan according to your wants and needs. I didn't have to replace all my clothes, just purchase a few things and slightly alter the way I put things together.
Maggie is highly supportive, creative and practical. My look has improved, and my self esteem is higher, thanks to Maggie."

"Maggie is a godsend! She gracefully and discerningly cleared out the old (and just plain bad) and perceptively went about crafting the new! She sincerely listens and tailors not only her suggestions and great selections to your unique tastes, but also has services to fit any and every need! She really makes the process a delight and takes the weight of the project off your should and transforms it into fun!
Absolutely, and without a doubt. She won't steer you astray! I trust Maggie's experience, but more importantly I trust her ability to accurately pinpoint the essence of her clients, their needs, and their tastes.
Maggie just makes you feel comfortable and excited from the first moment. She couldn't make working with her easier or more fun. I felt like I had known her for years, not in the sense of an acquaintance, but as a well-trusted friend (with stellar taste)!"
- Carrie W., Washington D.C.
"Maggie is a ROCK STAR stylist! I didn't think it was possible to clean up my mess of closets, but several hours, lots of laughs, 25 consignment pieces and 7 massive donation bags later, we did it!
