Client Testimonials

My favorite part is that Grasie teaches you as she goes, so that you aren’t totally lost after she leaves!

I had never even considered hiring a stylist before I met Grasie, but I went to her because I needed stylish yet business appropriate outfits for my speaking engagements. I was having a hard time striking that balance between having my own unique look and still looking like a professional. Grasie swooped in and did an INCREDIBLE job of staying true to my own personal style while nudging me in new directions that she knew would look great on me. Grasie has an incredible eye for what will look amazing on, and taught me a ton of little styling and jewelry tweaks too, that I now use all the time to polish any look. My favorite part is that Grasie teaches you as she goes, so that you aren’t totally lost after she leaves! Now whenever I shop I ask myself if a piece would be “Grasie-approved!” I adore the outfits she put together for me, and I always receive compliments on them. My overall ”style quotient” has definitely shot way up since working with Grasie and I’m now much more confident in what I wear.

The best thing about working with her is that she pushes my style limits just enough for me to try new looks (looks I never would have tried on my own), but she doesn’t push my look too far that I feel completely out of place.

I first learned about Grasie from two of my good girlfriends.  Every time I saw them they looked AMAZING – completely pulled together from head to toe.  When I learned they had been working with a stylist, my first thought was, “I’m not the type to hire a stylist.  That’s too “hollywood” for me.” But I was soon proven wrong! After some serious frustrations with my wardrobe, and a big video project just around the corner, I took the leap and called Grasie.  And good thing I did because for the past year now, she has been my secret weapon. Grasie has helped me clean out my closet to find the gems and the “must get rid of now” pieces, has shopped with me, and just recently styled me for a photo shoot.  I’m not quite sure how I ever lived without Grasie!  The best thing about working with her is that she pushes my style limits just enough for me to try new looks (looks I never would have tried on my own), but she doesn’t push my look too far that I feel completely out of place.  (Plus, she knows how to find a great deal and that’s a huge perk!)  If you ever get frustrated with the clothes in your closet or you’re tired of your current look and want a new one that’s still completely you, just more stylish and pulled together, Grasie’s your girl.

I open my closet now and see so many clothing choices that all work together…

I’ll try to put into words what Grasie Mercedes has done not only for my fashion sense, but for my self confidence. I told her that I would like to look “cool” and “fashionable”, but had a big hang up with wearing flashy clothes that made me the center of attention. I remember telling her, “I like Justin Timberlake, Brad Pitt, and Ryan Gosling’s style.” After hearing that, Grasie had 4 wardrobe options within minutes at the John Varvatos store in which we were shopping. Grasie taught me “how to shop” and “how to dress”. I no longer wear big baggy jeans, and oversized businessman shirts. I open my closet now and see so many clothing choices that all work together and are more form fitting to my body. I walk onto a red carpet and feel so incredibly confident, because I now know that what I’m wearing is a genuine reflection of myself and my taste. I love what Grasie has given me because it will truly last a lifetime. I know what looks good on me now and I know when and how to wear it. You simply cannot put a price tag on that kind of confidence.

She exudes incredible personal style and thinks out of the box…

Grasie embodies the profesionalism that is expected from any task or project I have asked her to assist on. She is a valued partner and takes pride in being a hard worker. She exudes incredible personal style, and thinks out of the box all the time. Grasie is a pleasure to have around and has worked with some of the most talented people in the Fashion industry. Grasie represents the high standard that any assistant I work with should have.

I have a whole new set of clothes, I didn’t spend a fortune, and I feel fantastic about myself every time I put something on…

The thought of having someone shop for me, and with me, was a completely foreign concept. It felt like something private and slightly embarrassing. But Grasie Mercedes changed all that. Once I hired her, she went through my clothes and made me get rid of everything I haven’t worn for years. “All those clothes that I paid good money for – so I should keep. Who cares if they didn’t look good on me.” So, that was phase one. And it happened quickly and was actually fun. I felt so free of that old clutter and I made a great contribution to the Salvation Army. Then phase two we went shopping. In the past after going to two stores (one, actually) I would get a spaced out feeling, along with feeling overwhelmed. With Grasie, it was completely different. It was actually… FUN. We went to about 5 stores that she had pre-scouted for me and she pulled stuff off the racks and guess what – the stuff actually fit me (and yeah – looked good too). There were certain items that felt scary to get. Grasie said – do it. I did. And I am sooo grateful. Then phase three, back at my house, Grasie showed me all the different combinations I could put together (I’m not going to use the word outfit). Then she took pictures of the multitude of combinations so I could have a reference. And now…I have a whole new set of clothes, I didn’t spend a fortune, and I feel fantastic about myself every time I put something on that I got with Grasie. It feels great going into meetings feeling put together as opposed to wearing baggy clothes that I used to hide in. I am so happy I gave myself this experience. Grasie makes it fun and effortless and she has a tremendous talent to pick out the perfect clothes for each person. (She did an awesome job for my Fiance, Marie, too) Thanks Grasie!

Grasie Is A Fashion GOD-SEND! Hire her now…

Grasie is the first stylist I’ve ever worked with who didn’t leave me 
feeling stupid or uncool.  She took me shopping and not only did I spend 
less money than I planned (she’s amazing at finding great pieces that don’t 
break the bank), but I scored a ton of outfits that I would have NEVER tried 
on that make me look and feel great.

  She is honest, loving and has an uncanny ability to put together amazing,
stylish outfits that you actually wear. And the best part is, she helped me
bring out my own unique style. I honestly can’t wait to shop with her 
again!  If you have ANY hesitation about what to wear or secretly know you
could be a lot more attractive and stylish…hire Grasie now.  It will be 
the best investment you’ve ever made in yourself.

I had the confidence to go all because you put that amazing outfit together…I felt amazing and flirtatious and a couple people asked where I got my cool “skirt”…

I did rally and go to that wedding, and it was the BEST most over the top New Year’s Eve ever! And I had the confidence to go all because you put that amazing outfit together with the sweater over the dress, so I can’t say thank you enough! I felt amazing and flirtatious and a couple people asked where I got my cool “skirt” – lol!! Thought you would enjoy hearing that. Thank you for the look book…finally wore something new and different and with style baby! Not only last night, but put on one of your outfits today too!

I’ve known Grasie for a long time but never took advantage of her vast style knowledge. All I can say, is shame on me, but better late than never. I just moved to LA and feel very fortunate to have had Grasie come and clean out my closet and teach me how to wear my clothes. More than that, she told me what I needed to buy to supplement my wardrobe. The 2.5 hours we spent together were priceless and well worth the money. Now I can leave my house feeling confident. Thank you Grasie! – Jamie Principe Attorney Los Angeles, CA

I had so much fun and you are a total genius!   You really made me think about my clothes in a different way and gave me the push to be a little more courageous about the choices I make and and how I wear my clothes.   Also so many great tips on what I need to buy going forward to make my wardrobe easier to mix and match. – Jennifer Hayden, Writer & Event Planner New York, NY

Before Grasie gave me a complete closet overhaul, I wold have told you that I didn’t have anything to wear. Despite my efforts to buy a mix of basics and trendy pieces, I never felt like I captured the “hot” looks. I struggled with feeling casual but chic and trendy but professional. I nearly gave away half of my wardrobe before she stepped foot in my closet and became my fairy- fashion- mother. By the time she left, I felt like someone had just taken me on a $10,000 shopping spree. I could not wait to discover all my new amazing outfits that had been sitting in my closet all along. With just a few simple tips, I felt like I learned the in’s and out’s, the do’s and don’ts of fashion, and my possibilities were limitless! I know something must be working, because since the moment I stepped foot outside of my apartment, random strangers have been stopping me to tell me how great I look! Before Grasie completely changed my outlook on my wardrobe and how to wear it, no one has ever stopped me in the frozen food aisle of the grocery store to ask “if I was a fashionista.” To which I smirked and said, “Hardly, I just know a great stylist!” Working with Grasie will literally change your life. - Samara Kelly, Actress

All I have to say is, since I’ve been working with Grasie, girls come up to ME now and want to talk! I never in my life have gotten so much attention from women, it’s awesome! – Ben Wood, Actor
