Jackie, the founder of Your Stylist is a stylist who not only does personal shopping but she also does closet audits and style assessments to help women simplify and streamline their wardrobe. And once she helps clients rid themselves of the items that don't fit their look or body, she donates them on their behalf so her clients still get the tax write off! How awesome is that?
Jackie said she chose to donate to DFS because they exclusively help women and so does she! Plus, both Jackie and her mom are abuse survivors, so that's another reason why this cause is close to her heart.
The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. So, through Dress for Success, women not only leave with a work-ready wardrobe, but also the skills and support they need to do well personally and professionally!
Jackie says her clients love knowing that the items from their Closet Audits goes to DFS, and it's even helped her clients let go of items easier knowing it's going to women in need.
Clients also love that she takes the items and donate for them at no additional cost. *The drop off process is simple: Jackie brings the donation downtown to Portaluca where the employees and volunteers record the donation in the store's log, she's given a receipt card upon drop-off, then she simply gives that to her client so they can claim it on their taxes if they wish to.
Jackie says she and her team love sneaking in a shopping trip while they're at Portaluca because they always have amazing designer pieces at a fraction of retail prices! Plus, all the sales benefit Dress for Success, so she feels even better about any purchases she makes!
Jackie says anyone can look great on any budget ...and that's something she can provide as well in terms of my services. That's right, wardrobe styling isn't just for the rich and famous!
