Picture this: You are applying makeup and realize your left side and right side are not even. In an attempt to make them even you start to add more to the side that appears to be lacking but you overcompensate and find yourself needing to add more to the other side now. Ugh! I don’t know about you, but when this happens to me after trying to “fix” the situation I just wash my face and start over.
“What does this have to do with virtual styling, Jen?” In launching my styling packages, for both in person and online, I did my research. I tried the various box subscriptions and asked others for feedback on the subscriptions. Most often the response I received was ‘I feel like they don’t get me.’ Most of these subscription boxes are using the info you provide to shop for you. So if you don’t understand the questions then you are not going to provide accurate information, obvi. Thus causing there to be a lack of communication. Also, most services do not have you interacting with an actual person. Not usually till the end when you get to provide feedback typically through a form or email.
“I feel like they don’t get me.”
Back to the makeup scenario. I believe it is important to have an understanding of what already exists in your closet. What does your closet lack or have too much of? If you don’t have an understanding of what’s in your closet, a subscription services that sells you clothes that may or may not suit your style, probably isn’t the answer. What you need is a service that is personalized to your needs and dives deeper than selling you clothes that could add to more chaos in your closet. Does the makeup reference seem relatable now?
