wadrobe fashion success story


“My consultation with Julie Maeder wasn’t just fabulous and fun; it was long-lasting because it changed the way I shop. No more boxy jackets. No more pleated pants. No more fear about mixing one suit jacket with a different colored skirt. Julie cured me of all of those bad habits!

She showed me that I’m better suited (no pun intended) with jackets that cut close to the waist and slim-fitting pants and skirts. Together we reviewed my clothes and she pieced things together in ways that I never would have imagined. Suddenly, I had a whole new wardrobe, and at that point, I hadn’t even purchased anything new (but that didn’t stop me, of course!). My makeover went beyond fabric and shoes. We revamped my makeup and hair, too. Throughout it all, I learned lessons that still stick with me today (more than two years later!).

I have two small stories that say it all.

One morning I was meeting a colleague at the Townsend for breakfast. I arrived early so I could read the paper. I walked to a newspaper dispenser near the Townsend, and a woman pulled over and rolled down her window. I assumed she wanted directions, and I leaned forward to hear her question. She smiled and said, ‘Please don’t think I’m strange, but that is the prettiest sweater I’ve ever seen, and it looks great on you!’ I was totally taken aback. Nobody has ever stopped a car to tell me I looked fabulous. And the funniest thing of all is that Julie had to talk me into that green, wrap-around sweater and wide, black patent leather belt. It was outside my comfort range, very different from anything I’d ever purchased for myself. Needless to say, it’s ‘grown’ on me!

My second story includes a dialogue with one of my clients. He was born in Paris of a Spanish father and French mother, so he has a rather continental approach to life that I really enjoy. Recently, as he and I were walking to grab a coffee together, he said, ‘You know, I love the way you dress. You use a lot of color. It’s so sassy!’

Indeed! Thank you, Julie!! You’re the best!”
