“She also understands your personal body type and is gentle and always positive about what works and what doesn't."
“I totally agree with Alison deserving more than 5 stars! I can't imagine feeling comfortable with anyone else coming into my closet. Working with Alison has changed my life in so many ways. That may sound silly but wearing clothes that accentuate who i am makes a difference in how i and others perceive me. People noticed the change immediately and 10 months later still make positive comments about my clothes and how i look. She has a great sense of style but also works to understand your style (or what you want it to be). She also understands your personal body type and is gentle and always positive about what works and what doesn't. She picks out the perfect clothes to let your best you come through. I normally hate shopping, but walking into a dressing room full of clothes that I liked and worked for me was so much fun!
Also, I have a clearer sense of what i am looking for when i shop so it makes it less daunting. And she gives you a cool look-book of all your outfits, the new clothes and your old clothes and how they all go together.
I had always wanted to be on that show "What Not To Wear" but without being on tv. This is like that but without a million people watching you go through your closet and doing it with someone who is positive and caring. If you could choose one thing to do for yourself, friend or spouse, i highly recommend giving the gift of working with Alison. In fact, I'm gifting this to my husband for his birthday!”

“Alison. Is. AWESOME! Going shopping with her just feels like going shopping with a REALLY stylish girlfriend! I had a very divided wardrobe (basics and then super wild/fun printed items) that she helped me bridge into one cohesive wardrobe. She gave me great little tips (something as simple as cuffing my t-shirt sleeves) that help take my outfits from fine to stylish, and I feel like ever since my session with her, I always leave my house feeling stylish and confident!”
Emily g. | Small business owner, entrepreneur
“Alison's process was exceptional. She really took the time to get to know my lifestyle and helped translate it in to my personal style. She has a great, easy demeanor and we spent a lot of our time together laughing! I loved all the aspects of working with Alison, but the best part for me was cleaning out my closet. I feel lighter and more focused when making outfit choices. Thanks to Alison, figuring out what to wear is not nearly as daunting as it had been in the past.”
Lynne f. | Director of consulting operations
“I had a closet full of clothes but only had a handful of outfits I felt confident wearing. I was stuck in a style rut and lacked the inspiration and know-how to pair new pieces together. Alison came in and brought my closet to life! She put together hundreds of new outfits using the clothing I already owned. She helped me decide what items needed to go and created a list of some "basics" I needed to purchase. Alison's great sense of humor and fashion expertise made the whole process painless and fun. In the end, I felt like I had a whole new wardrobe, and I never had to spend a penny shopping!”

“Alison deserves a higher rating than five stars. Quite simply, she is incredible at her job. Not only does she have a beautiful personality that will ease any discomfort, she is fun and she makes styling and shopping something you will truly enjoy. I had no idea how pleasurable it would be to working with her. I was blown away by her professionalism and ability to intuit my taste and sense of style. I loved every minute, I learned a tremendous amount of tips on how to assemble outfits and what to add to my closet. I left with a greater confidence and pride in who I am. Ultimately, I learned that style, how I dress and present myself to the world, can be a creative expression and a form of self love. I completely recommend hiring her for yourself or as a gift for someone you love or both. You will be a happier person for doing so.”

“After using her services,
I felt like a whole new person.”
“I had always noticed how stylish Alison was and how she found clothes that fit her body type and personality so well. She always seemed so comfortable and confident in what she was wearing and I knew I wanted her to work with me.
At first, the process seemed overwhelming, mostly because I hate to shop, but she helped make it easier and fun! She gave me easy tips, specific things to look for and an approach to follow. She was also very honest about what wouldn't work or look good on me. I truly appreciated her help and honesty!
After using her services, I felt like a whole new person. I went from having no fashion or style sense to learning what looks good, goes together and fits me best. Five years later, I still get complimented all the time on my outfits and jewelry. My favorite line I hear from people is "you're outfit is so cute, where did you get it?"
Yes, my whole outlook on clothes changed! I now know what types of clothing work well together and how to accessorize accordingly. The tips I remember most often are "sometimes less is more" and "you can dress up or down any outfit". I went from not knowing how to look cute, to feeling attractive and confident wearing my clothes!”

“About two years ago I switched from a job that required business attire to one that follows more of the “Nike casual” mentality. And for that same amount of time I’ve been trying to force the contents of my closet to fit this new work environment, but have taken it to the extreme and found myself defaulting to athletic gear most days. I would say that, before meeting Alison, I had a semi-serious case of shopping anxiety – I’m taller than the average girl, I don’t wear high heels, hadn’t really honed in on my personal style, and I’m a big fan of comfort. The contents of my closet did not say “successful young professional” and that needed to change.
From the first few minutes of our “Sort” session, I could tell that Alison was going to bring a breath of fresh air to something that I loathed. She thoughtfully looked at each existing item and breathed new life into many of them – some needed to go and she was respectful about that process. And she was so right! I haven’t thought about those items since they found new homes.
There is nothing worse than picking out a selection of items and then walking out of the dressing room empty handed. Alison took the time to go shopping in advance of my arrival and I have never felt more confident trying on clothes. Some didn’t work and that was totally okay! Others fit perfectly and became the main staples my closet needed, giving me endless options.
Evangeline P. | Director of Development & Operations
“I had just moved back to the States after volunteering abroad for a year, and my closet was both desolate and out of style. The worst part was, as a volunteer, I was financially broke. I saved up a tiny bit of money and called Alison to see if there was any hope. I needed a wardrobe I was proud of, confident in, and could dress up or down... that cost pennies.
Alison has a gift! She knew exactly what ten pieces of clothing I needed to add to my closet to have a cute outfit for any occasion. On top of that, my clothes could layer so I could wear them in any weather! This wardrobe was exactly what I needed until I had a regular paycheck... at which point Alison and I worked together again. She is masterful at understanding a person's body type, preferred style, and budget. Also, not only is she a physically beautiful person with an artistic eye, she is an incredible friend on the inside and I treasure our times together. I cannot recommend her highly enough!”
risa H. | Director of external relations
“OMG! Alison is AMAZING. Seriously, EVERYONE should do this at least once in their life. I had just left a terrible relationship, was recovering from a chronic illness and my self-esteem was in the toilet. I'd been living in sweat pants. I gave Alison the brief of wanting to look effortlessly chic - and she NAILED IT.
I have an amazing wardrobe now full of clothes that I can easily piece together and it's all amazing quality stuff that will last me many many years. She even got me back into the skinny jeans that I missed so much! A friend commented the other day that I looked effortlessly stylish - more proof that Alison totally hit the look I was going for. Thank you Alison! I'll look forward to working with you again in Summer! :)”

“you can tell that she really loves helping people grow both in their style and in their self-image.”
“I am so thankful for Alison Knox's styling services. As a singer songwriter it is important for me to be current and look good on stage as well as in everyday life. Alison came alongside me and helped me evaluate my current closet as well as make recommendations for future purchases. She helped me put together great outfits that fit my body type and my personal style. She went shopping with me and helped me identify the items that would make the most impact on my wardrobe for the best value. I appreciate that she took care in helping recognize my signature style and matching me with clothing that fit me personally and not just the things that she liked to wear. She is detailed and comprehensive in helping not only with clothing but also shoes, accessories, and even hair and makeup recommendations. Alison understands that the entire package is important so she speaks into each area.
Because of Alison's services I am now able to put together outfits with more confidence, having a better understanding of which items look good on me and which styles are current. I have experienced a major boost in my confidence, as I have learned to dress in a way that makes me feel good about myself. She makes the process fun and you can tell that she really loves helping people grow both in their style and in their self-image. So thankful and I would absolutely use her services again!”
