Get A Personal Stylist Without a Celeb Paycheck
Have you ever scoured your closet for an ah-mazing outfit to wear on a Saturday night and thought, "Oof. I could really use some help." Yep, us too (down to the oof). Finding the coolest trends and lustworthy staples that will fit our bodies just right is not easy.
That's where Marina Monroe comes in. The celebrity stylist is the brainchild behind stylehaüs, a members-only clothing boutique in Los Angeles that features perks like ready access to a personal stylist and a 24/7-hour emergency fashion hotline.
Sounds fancy, right? Yes, but it's attainable. Marina believes that everyone should be able to get fashion advice even if they're not rich or famous. Feel like shopping your sweats? You won't be shunned. Can't figure out what items you need in your closet? You're a phone call away from one-on-one attention.
"The traditional retail model puts too heavy of an emphasis on sales over service, so I decided to turn that concept on its head and create a new business paradigm where service reigns, and sales come as a result of that relationship," Marina told mystyle.
mystyle had the chance to visit the boutique, and we were blown away. The interior was inviting and welcoming, the complete opposite of a cold showroom or snobby boutique. All of the pieces were handpicked, so we saw exquisite pieces from Mir + Mookhi and Lauren Stucky mixed with vintage items, plus racks full of clothes we wanted to steal (don't worry—we deciding drooling would be better than a felony).
We also had a mini-makeover by in-house makeup artist Jennifer Naideth, which left us with more knowledge on eyebrow pencils and foundation than we had expected before being caffeinated. Overall, we left impressed—not only is the space a new concept, we got to pick the brains of experienced stylists. Talk about our dream day come true.
Becoming a part of the fashion dreamhouse will cost $1,000 a year, but with that you get the perks of Marina and her stylists' vast knowledge, excusive member events like trunk shows and sample sales, and two at-home closet consulations per year.
The best part is that Marina truly knows what she's talking about—not only has she been in retail and personal styling for years, she works with big names like Dancing with the Stars' Kym Johnson. (The revealing dress to the left? Yep, styled by Marina.) Plus celeb stylists for Jenna Ushkowitz and Victoria Justice are just two of the many to visit the boutique for amazing one-of-a-kind dresses and bonus expertise.
"There is something so rewarding about being able to help people look and feel their best on such an intimate level," Marina says.
