It all started when I went to my closet and screamed out, “I’ve got NOTHING to wear!” With that my hubby marched right into my closet and laughed at me! Yes, LAUGHED at me! See, the problem was we saw things very, very differently. He saw a closet full of clothes with all kinds of options. I saw a closet full of old, boring clothes, many of which haven’t fit since before my first child. And with that….I called Fawn Cheng, Personal Stylist. I met Fawn briefly when my dear friend, Heather Sander of The ReStyle Group made over Fawn’s closet. Read the deets and see all the pics because it is spectacular!  Fawn was the answer to my problem and even better, offered up a savvy deal!

Fawn sent me her style profile that I filled out and then she popped by my house to chat about my closet. Reality hit BIG TIME! No, I don’t wear all of these clothes and let’s be real, I’ve had 2 kids, my hips are NEVER going back in. {insert sad face here} So out with the old…..




That’s right….over 150 pieces of clothing…out! I told you, I was finally being realistic! It felt GREAT. Now onto shopping, my favorite part!

Fawn met me at Chandler Fashion Center in Chandler, AZ at Express to begin the shopping day. She immediately made me feel comfortable and within minutes, better about my choice in clothing! She brought me clothes to try on that I would NEVER have picked out, not because they were not darling, but because I didn’t think I would look good in them, but the crazy thing was, I did! And I trusted what Fawn said. I mean, she is the professional here! She brought me sizes that I thought were too small but she taught me that if I kept wearing tops that were too big, they’d make me look frumpy. Wow, really, an XSmall t-shirt? As I tried on clothes, Fawn took pictures with her iPad.

I never would have thought about a scarf with this outfit, but it looked so cool. And I felt so trendy!

We shopped White House Black Market where I found this darling white dress for a party! (Then Fawn helped me pick out turquoise accessories to go with it!)

We headed up to Scottsdale to shop Guess by Marciano, Anthropology and Nordstrom.

I bought dresses, pants, shirts, tanks, shoes and even scarves and I felt FABULOUS! Not sure how my hubby felt when we saw this….

A couple days later, after I had lived with the new clothes, Fawn stopped by to talk me through everything. Again, the advice was immeasurable. She discussed how to wear belts, what jewelry to wear and how I can mix and match everything I have. She told me about Kathleen Tinkler of Mrs. Tinkler’s Evening Wear, who did a ton of alterations for me. Wow, I never knew my clothes could fit so great! Let me just tell you Fawn Cheng is worth EVERY single penny. I’m excited to head into my closet each day to pick out my outfit. You won’t hear me saying, “I’ve got nothing to wear” anymore. From now on I will shop differently and I will trust the valuable insight that Fawn has given me.

Now, I bet you’re thinking, “HOLY COW! I want to have Fawn Cheng be my personal stylist!” I knew it, I knew you would. And trust what I’m saying…..YOU DO! She’s beyond phenomenal!
