Just wanted to thank you again for the major spring cleaning we did! … Those trunks of clothes really had a hold on me. You freed me from their grasp.
– Elizabeth, attorney
As usual, when you left, I was energized, and my mind was racing
along pondering the possibilities of keeping my look current and my closet uncluttered.
– Linda, artist
As a result of working with you, I feel like I can put outfits together better and complete my outfits with the right shoes and accessories, so I actually feel cute when I walk out the door!
– Christina, stay-at-home mom
This is how I’ve always wanted to look!
– S.H., stay-at-home mom
I love how I look! And I owe it all to you!
– Gwen R., foundation executive
Thanks as always for your AMAZING help!!! I really like a number of the outfits we created and am psyched with how much I can make with what I have!! Your closet sessions are ... invalaluable. Not only do they help me put together some ready-wear combos, but they also help me to understand how to put outfits together and educate me about what‘s missing in my closet and
what to look out for should I happen upon a sale …” — Liz R., health policy analyst
I didn’t realize I was wearing the wrong colors for all of these years! Ketura’s keen eye identified the colors that are most flattering on me. Armed with the handy swatch wallet in my colors that she gave me, I am so much more successful in picking out clothes that make me look younger and more vibrant.

Ketura is like a magic genie when it comes to transforming wardrobes! Before I began working with her, getting dressed every morning for work would take several attempts and a lot of frustration! In our first consultation, Ketura pulled together gorgeous outfits that I didn’t even know existed in my closet (including a skirt that’s now my favorite that I almost never wore before that). During our shopping trip, Ketura was able to identify — quickly — the kinds of clothes that would fit my style (she did a whole assessment that really clarified the look I was going for), which made shopping easy and fun. Rather than going for the latest style (which I do love), I was able to fit trends into MY personal style based on Ketura’s assessment. She also helped me identify appropriate accessories t pull the whole look together. I now have a cohesive wardrobe — every item in there is there for a purpose; it belongs to something rather than just sitting there, unworn. It’s a pleasure to get dressed in the morning now because I LOVE my wardrobe, I understand how things go together, and best of all, it all feels like ME. Ketura understands that how we dress is more than wearing beautiful clothes — it must be an extension of who we are!

Knowing what looks good on you is information everyone should be armed with before they venture into the clothing shop! Now that Ketura has determined I’m a summer, and I have her handy color palette in my purse, I know which colors give me that young and happy glow.
– Bonnie, consultant
I wanted to express my appreciation to you for all your wonderful help. I LOVE the direction my closet is taking. Thanks to you, for the first time, I feel like I finally have a style! This is already helping me focus my thinking and shopping so that I end up wasting a lot less money and time on items that clash or add little value to my closet.
– Elizabeth K., government employee
I really needed to fix my clothing situation, and Ketura helped enormously…. I am really impressed with her talent and approach.
– Ellen K., consultant
I have recently become a thrifting aficionado, which means that I have a new world of clothing possibilities before me … and a lot of choice! Ketura’s color analysis gives me instant expertise; armed with her teachings and my handy color-swatch booklet, I can fly through the racks, picking out only those colors that make me look refreshed and enlivened! I have even more fun on my thrifting missions and feel like an expert in what makes me look and feel wonderful.
– Jessica S., healthcare professional
I loved working with you….. I think you’ve infused me with a new spirit and woken me up a bit after a long, child-bearing-provoked slumber. And I feel so liberated from all that dead weight of excess clothing!
– Carol V., government employee
I have been a purging QUEEN! It has felt wonderful; clearing out all the stuff that brought me down has elevated my mood! I do thank you every time I look at my re-imaged closet.
– M., homemaker in DC
Ketura helped me tremendously when I was preparing to move overseas by whittling down my enormous, outdated wardrobe to a manageable number of outfits that fit well and look great on me. She has a keen eye for identifying one’s personal style and putting together separates in a refreshing way that reflect that style. She also makes the process fun! Now, when I put my hand in my closet, anything I land on is something that fits and that I feel great in. Her newsletters and blog links are also highly entertaining and very informative — watch out, they’re addictive!
– Sue O., PR consultant and photographer
I was wearing the same outfits again and again, and they didn’t project a coherent style. Ketura talked me through the image I wanted to project and translated that into an overall look. During our very first session, she put together several ensembles from the clothes I already had, so I had “new” outfits to wear immediately. What a bonus that was! Then we talked about specific pieces – accessories, purses and shoes in addition to clothes – that would round out my wardrobe. She even suggested a new notebook for client meetings – and I’ve gotten many compliments on it! Now Ketura helps me on an ongoing basis by suggesting key pieces for each season. Doing that keeps me wardrobe up-to-date. Working with Ketura continues to be a very rewarding experience …. Avoiding expensive mistakes feels great, too.
– Annie E., interior designer
After being home with my kids for almost eight years, I had no professional clothes. Ketura helped me pull together clothes for a next-day interview that were appropriate, affordable, and gave me the confidence to knock ‘em dead at my meeting. (I got the job).
– Patti L., mother returning to work
Having Ketura work on my closet was a great investment. It was worth having her look at my clothes and tell me what would look good on me. My first thought when she came over to analyze my closet was “Well, there will be nothing left if she really cleans out.” And it was true that lots had to go. She helped me get rid of clothes that just weren’t flattering, and helped me create great outfits with what was left, thus expanding my wardrobe! But the pieces that were left she helped me see in a new way. It was a huge first step. She helped me figure out what colors look best on me and started a list of pieces to buy and where to find them. The things I bought I’ve worn over and over again and always get compliments! Letting her into my closet was a great investment in myself, because when I look better, I feel better!

Whenever I wear a Ketura-inspired outfit, I get tons of compliments. She helped me put together an outfit for a very special party, and it was perfect.
– Bonnie R., writer
I needed an outfit for a family wedding, very casual. We were told to wear white, preferably vintage. Ketura helped me to find the perfect vintage white gown, located the ideal kicky boots in my own closet, and found the most gorgeous necklace to class me up. My outfit was perfect for the occasion, and I looked absolutely beautiful. Whenever Ketura puts something on me, I get more compliments in a day than I get in a year of dressing myself.
– Jessica R., psychotherapist
I was hanging on to a closetful of clothes I never wore. Ketura gave me the courage to donate many of these outdated items to a local charity and to focus on colors and styles that worked for me. Now not only do I have a better closet, but I also have a better sense of what to look for when I shop.
– Diane P., educator
I was stuck in a rut — too used to dressing casually without realizing that “casual” doesn’t have to mean “sloppy.” Ketura went through my closet, finding new ways to pair items that brought new life to things I already owned. She also went shopping with me and taught me how to layer, use color, and most of all, to accessorize. Now I really feel as if I’ve found my style, and I show it all the time. Even a pair of jeans and a t-shirt looks hip and trendy on me. I get lots of compliments, and people especially seem to think that certain things I have on are very “me!”
– Gayle S., healthcare provider
I was co-chairing a very big event. I had a great dress I really loved, but I had no idea how to accessorize to make the most of its impact and really showcase it (and me). And I was getting really stressed out about it! I went to Ketura and she calmed me down. She reminded me to keep the look simple and focused on the fabulous dress. She directed me toward a neutral shoe rather than the one I’d picked and she even lent me a pair of her own earrings. The result: I looked and felt great and got a ton of compliments the night of the event!
