This Month’s Sponsor 

Elisa Ellis

Wardrobe Stylist

Stylist, Stella & Dot 

Closet confidence is key to every day success. I am a wardrobe stylist and I help women update their look with jewelry, accessories, and apparel so they look good and feel good when they walk out the door.  

I offer outfit coordination, closet edits, personal shopping, style makeovers, a personal VIP jewelry concierge service and more! I help women discover and create the perfect look for themselves wether they are going back to work, got promoted, want a new image, don’t like to shop, or they are starting over.

Most women walk into their closets and think “I have nothing to wear.” I can help you with that! I believe with a few key pieces you can mix and match endless combinations. I help women work with what they have and fill in with a few key pieces so they enjoy getting dressed every day. 

I help women go from casual to professional to glam. I work with women one on one (in person or on-line) and in group style sessions.  

Near or far I can help you update your look.
