Kerry Cordero – PERSONAL STYLIST
& Personal Stylist
If you need a virtual stylist to to advise you with personal shopping or personal styling, I’m here to help. Even before this challenging time, I supported my clients in New Jersey and New York and all over the world using virtual stylist tools. You’ll get the best of all my virtual stylist tools, the Online Closet as part of your personal styling. The online closet stores photos of your clothes, shares links to new clothes that I recommend and has a look book with images of your outfits. You get an online color analysis that was created by an image industry expert. And we base your wardrobe on body shape so all the items mix and match. All this – as they say – from the comfort and safety of your home.
Here’s how it works. First, we talk and get to know each other while we review your style assessment. You’ll get to talk out about your goals and personality and learn about your personal color analysis and body shape. After that, we can go online shopping, using the online closet, or continue on your style journey. You decide. If we continue on your personal style journey, we find your body shape and shop your closet for your “core four.” These are the basic items that are the start of a fourteen item closet capsule that can be worn in about forty different ways. Finally, I teach you how to put the finishing touch on your outfit using patterns, textures, necklines, jewelry, belts and shoes. During the entire process, I encourage and motivate you, create tasteful and stylish outfits and take photos for your Online Closet.
The personal style journey can be purchased in parts or as a package. If you purchase the package, you get a free Mix & Match session. In this session, we combine your new treasures along with the old faithful favorites from your closet to make amazing new outfits. Send me an email and let’s get started! Or read on for more about my services.
1. Style Assessment
Your personal style journey begins with a Style Assessment that helps me understand what you want from your clothes and your life. We’ll review your answers together so that you understand more about your personal style.
You’ll also get a sneak peek of my style card game called Dress Your Dreams and we will do a Kwik Personal Color analysis. A color strip is sent to you after to keep.
Details: We’ll schedule a 90 minute Zoom / FaceTime call and I will email you a style assessment (Word doc) for you to fill out. You will return the assessment along with three photos of your face and hair that shows your neck and eye colors, 24 hours before the call.
2. Online Shopping
At any time in your personal style journey, you can do an Online Shopping session. Or you can purchase this service on it’s own.
We will discuss your shopping list and I’ll be right there to advise on fit, colors, shape and best pattern and textures. Then I go do my online shopping magic where I find the best items for you and post them to your private virtual closet. We discuss your options, you purchase them and we review the items when they arrive to ensure they fit and flatter.
Details: In a 45 minute Zoom meeting, we will formulate a 10 item shopping list in your price range. I will post items to your virtual closet where you can easily purchase them. We will have 2 Zoom calls of 45 minutes each to discuss your options before you order and review your purchases afterward.
3. Shop your Closet
With Shop Your Closet we assess your body shape so we know the right fit for your body. Then we shop your closet for four items that are the building blocks of your closet capsule. These are called the “core four.” After that we search for the remaining ten items that complete your personalized closet capsule. Capsules include linking pieces in colors, patterns, textures and accessories and are captured in your private virtual online closet.
Details: This is a 2 hour Zoom / FaceTime session and it requires that you send pictures 24 hours before. You will send 3 photos of the front, back and side of your full length body. You will also send 5 photos of your actual closet. We will photograph your core four plus the ten other items from your closet capsule and preserve them in your online closet for future reference. If these items can’t be found in your closet, I will create a shopping list for you.
4. Accessorize Me
With Accessorize Me you’ll learn how to finish off your outfits with scarves, jewelry, belts, shoes and bags that will flatter you and express your personal style. During the session, I share image tips and tools that help you experiment with accessories and make choices that flatter you. This session includes sample images posted to your virtual online closet for you to refer to in the future.
Details: This is a 45 minute Zoom session and it requires that you send pictures 48 hours before our call. You will send 3 photos of your face – one from the front and one from each side of your face. You will also send three photos of the full length of your body – one from the front, one from the back and another from the side. You’ll also send about ten pictures of your favorite accessories: jewelry, necklaces, earrings, belts, shoes, handbags, etc. After our call, I will post in your online closet, samples of items that will remind you of the details of our call.
The Whole Package
The Package includes all four of the services above plus a free Mix and Match session. In the Mix & Match session you will get the ultimate in support with a final free session where we bring what you own together with what we bought. My secret and best talent is making creative, fresh and self-expressive outfits that are in good taste and reflect the real you. If your plan is to get to know your style and improve your look, then making this commitment is the right move.

Your Style Can Be Easy

- Fit – Is the item in your size or within one size up or down of your current size?
- Flatter – Does the item flatter your body’s silhouette?
- Like – Do you really like it? I mean, really? Some items should be stored away separately from the clothes, as keepsakes or as gifts.
- Accessories – Does the accessory work within your current style? Or, does the item require accessorizing so that it becomes part of a complete ensemble?
- Color – Does the color of the item make you look fresh, happy and healthy or tired and ill?
- Kerry – In the well-informed opinion of the stylist, can the item be altered or fixed so that it remains useful? Or is it a designer or vintage item that can be sold? Finally does the item express your current and up-to-date style?
Fill out the style survey and send it back to me. It helps me assess your style and your appearance so that we can talk about the best clothes to make you look great and feel amazing.
