"I was impressed with how quickly she "got" my style!"
Sue made the processing of assessing my current work wardrobe and shopping for new items easy, hassle-free, and even fun! I was impressed with how quickly she “got” my style and was able to pull a fitting room full of items for me to try that were in line with my style preferences and good for my body shape. Through this process, I learned tips that have helped me look for a few other pieces on my own. And I also learned how much tailoring can change the fit of clothing – even something as simple as moving the placement of a button – that will help me in the future. Working with Sue was a good investment of my time and money as well as a confidence booster!”
"Working with Sue has been a wonderful experience!"

"I Feel Like I Have Emerged from a Cocoon"
Thank you for your presentation yesterday. It’s strange when things impact you in ways you do not expect. The secret to my success is I implement ideas quickly. Last night, I implemented concepts from your talk. I went into my closet and started purging. I purged everything that didn’t fit, but I was holding on for sentimental reasons. What felt even better is that I purged all the clothes I settled on purchasing during the lean years in my business after pregnancy. The ones that although they fit, don’t make me feel like the powerful business owner that I am. Your talk inspired me to think about the things in my clothes that I love and how I can mix and match pieces to get more out of the clothes that I currently have that make me feel great. All of this is great, but there is more to the story. I had a fretful night–tossing and turning; yet when I woke up I felt like I had emerged from a cocoon… “I fully embraced Sheri Cheney Jones, the successful author, speaker, and accomplished business owner. ” I let go of some of the old rules and thoughts that needed to be broken. Thanks for your permission, your inspiration. Keep shining your light because I’m sure it is impacting people in ways you would never imagine. It sure impacted me!

"I am thoroughly thrilled with the outcome."
Now donning a new look, the compliments are pouring in. I always felt that I looked my best and had my own sense of style, so I never considered working with a Stylist. I reluctantly agreed to a Closet Curation with Sue Kantor, mostly out of a desire to streamline my wardrobe and reduce my clutter. Within moments of working with Sue, it became suddenly clear that my closet had evolved into a graveyard of outdated and ill-fitting clothes, cluttered with decades of multiple sizes and styles. Immediately the benefits rolled in. The first phase began with her in-home assistance, where I was able to sort through piles in my closet of Keeps vs. Discard. She further helped me to shed another few boxes of ‘maybe’s’. Next Sue helped me reshape my silhouette and style. By working with Sue, it became apparent that I was in style rut. I was too close to the situation and too comfortable in my look. Sue encouraged me to step out of my box and try on items that I would not have selected for myself. I resisted some and relented on others. Through collaboration, we came up with a new wardrobe by mixing in what I had and incorporating Sue’s impeccable taste. The biggest benefits I found by working with Sue Kantor are:
If you are thinking of working with Sue Kantor as your Stylist, invest in yourself. You are worth it and so is Sue!

"I feel it was a tremendous experience. It was fun too!
I realized previously I have been random in my shopping, spending more, in the long run, is a better investment than impulse shopping. While my husband always said so, Sue confirmed it when she made me realize that a lot of my clothes don’t fit and are not proportioned to my size. I think I will have the value from it for a long time. When I told my daughter, the “stylist” in New York, she felt that Sue had more credibility because she wasn’t pushing a certain line, and found value in some of my current wardrobe. Great experience. I would highly recommend Sue and thank you!

"I would recommend her without hesitation."
I have known Sue for several years through The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) and also have witnessed her at work. She takes the time to get to know you, your style, and your goals. She then provides a thoughtful assessment of your style, your body type, and the types of clothes that work best—always focusing on the positive. She also provides expert and creative advice working with what is already in her clients’ closet and then suggesting what could be added. She’s professional and friendly as well as creative.

"I'm an Executive Director today!"
I’ll admit I was skeptical about working with a personal stylist but I needed to present a more professional appearance if I wanted to be promoted. While ransacking my closets and accepting that I couldn’t stay a punk computer geek forever was uncomfortable. I’m very happy to have had Sue’s help on this journey. Sue and the people she introduced me to (Drew and Tim) are a big part of the reason I’m and executive Director today. Thank you!
"She allowed me to focus on work while taking over various shopping tasks for me."
This saved me a lot of time and stress. Sue has been a tremendous help in assisting me with my wardrobe and teaching me how to get the most out of the pieces I have. She has been supportive and very knowledgeable. Most of all she allowed me to focus on work while taking over various shopping tasks for me. This saved me a lot of time and stress. I now have the start to a great closet and look forward to a continuing fashion experience with Sue.

"I feel incredible and I must say, I look fantastic again!"
Before I worked with Sue, I had a closet filled with clothes yet nothing to wear. I spent a lot of time and money on clothing but didn’t love what I had in my closet. After having two children, my body had changed and I wasn’t sure how to keep my style and still look good. I wanted to stop the madness and start looking like myself again, having known Sue casually for many years, I knew she could help me. The word “transformative” comes to mind when thinking of this past week working with Sue. I now know exactly why I felt that I had nothing to wear. I wasn’t even in the right size most of the time and I wasn’t playing to my strengths! Sue opened my eyes to trying new brands, different sizes (even petite) and showed me a plethora of tools to look my best. Sue has changed my world. I now have a closet of key pieces and a few fun and funky things that I will reach for time and time again. I’m looking forward to shopping with Sue again for the next season. It’s well worth the investment in yourself.

"She's worth her weight in gold!"
Opening up your closet for critique can make you feel a bit vulnerable. Sue was very patient and encouraging–which put me at ease– immediately. Her keen eye was able to evaluate what styles looked best on me. She shared tips for the types of things I should look for when shopping. She followed up by emailing me a very helpful example of a “clothing capsule” which helped me see how to mix and match better. She also sent me a list of wardrobe items I am missing to achieve a truly workable wardrobe. But, what was amazing, was her help shopping! I’m shopping phobic but with her help, I purchased a number of lovely key items that transformed my wardrobe. As it turned out, I have been buying the wrong size (too large)! WOW…what a difference. Yesterday, in my new clothes, I got a bunch of compliments, including being told I look so much younger! My friends were trying to figure out what changed. I’ll never tell! Confidence through the roof! So glad my coach, Chris Warnky, recommended Sue to me. I’d recommend her to anyone who needs to look their best!
"You have inspired me to be the best-looking version of myself that I can be!"
I underestimated the amount of work it takes to find something that fits my body, my style, AND the occasion. You helped me learn if and why something fits. You also showed me how to navigate the ridiculous number of options by trying things on and finding a brand that works. You helped me learn how to play down my shoulders and accentuate my waist, curves, and legs. I can’t tell you how amazing it feels to narrow my search by cutting out certain styles (straight dresses, for example). This will save me time otherwise spent trying on dresses that aren’t even flattering by design. I now understand and accept that it’s going to take several visits for me to find a brand that fits me, my style, AND the occasion. It wasn’t what I expected it to be, but was absolutely what I needed it to be! I am so, so pleased with my experience!

"For anyone who thinks they need a stylist, don't know if they need one, and most importantly for those who DON'T think they need one."
A friend gave me Sue Kantor’s name and email eight months ago and told me awesome she was. I immediately emailed her and she got right back to me. We exchanged a few emails to secure a time to talk. I kept putting it off–not convinced I needed or wanted to spend the money. I thought I was doing a pretty good job with my style. Six months later, I decided to schedule a phone conversation. Our 15-minute phone consultation quickly turned into 30 minutes. She was prepared, had a ton of questions to understand my needs, attitudes, and behaviors surrounding style, shopping, etc. She told me what she could do for me and said feel free to think about it. I want this to be something you really want to do and you have to be ready and comfortable moving forward. I really appreciated her non-pushy approach and was excited about what she could do to help me. Right after that call, I decided to schedule a Closet Assessment. I only wish I had called her sooner! My time with Sue was extremely eye opening and fun! I learned a ton about style, fit, what to look for relative to my body type. I also learned what styles to avoid. She tailored her services based on what I needed and was mindful of my budget. Here is what she did for me:
Closet Assessment- We focused on my fall/winter wardrobe, Spent four hours going through the contents of my closet and drawers because of the number of wardrobe items I had, and she followed up with a six-page detailed report that I still use as a guide when shopping on my own and/or putting outfits together.
Personal Shopping- I arrived at retail stores with a fitting room filled with clothes that she pre-selected–based on the results of my closet assessment. We tried on styles to find the right fit for me and created outfits. Sue met me at the tailor to reinforce some minor alterations–and create a custom fit. She went above and beyond every step of the way to make sure we accomplished everything we agreed upon. Her high energy made our time together extra fun! I continue to receive compliments on my new outfits and feel even more confident about my style!
So, if you are uncertain whether you need a stylist, you probably do! A few tips and tricks go a long way in helping you communicate the message you wish to convey–whether it be at work our out to dinner.
