THE 60-SECOND BACKSTORY
→ The Stylish Standout started as a website focused on fashion, shopping, and spotlighting women I thought were really cool. Then I decided to combine my experiences from retail, corporate training and development, and fashion magazines to grow TSS into a multi-service business.
→ So whether I’m writing a Blog post, crafting an email subject line, consulting with a brand on strategy, or creating an in-person personalized style experience, the mission is the same: to make style feel elevated, approachable, and personal and help you attract the right attention to your brand.
→ Sure, the business has evolved, but my passion to inspire business-minded professionals and creatives through style remains the same. And even though I take that assignment seriously, supporting you as you change the world is lots of fun.
Since you made it this far, why don’t I share a bit more about what matters to The Stylish Standout? I believe personal style can transform your life and a clear, compelling brand can help you achieve your goals. I’ve learned that since what you buy impacts what you wear, shopping is more than just a leisure pursuit—it’s a necessary activity. I’m convinced we’re drowning in information, but starving for knowledge (you’ll find more of the second category across all platforms). And if I’m lucky enough to ever call you a customer or client, I’ll work tirelessly to make your experience—whether it’s online or offline—a memorable one. So I won’t hold you up any longer. Browse around the site and make yourself at home.
