Being stylish and having an enviable closet doesn't always mean going "designer" or high-end but it does mean making better choices were possible. A closet (and personal brand) that cares means being more educated about clothing and fabrication, more thoughtful in your selection, buying less (yikes!), and building your wardrobe with a meaningful endgame!
Hi, I’m Monica Barnett!
I started styling because I wanted people to feel good, and one of the easiest ways to feel good is to look great! Every time I see a client and they’ve got that natural confidence, I know part of that is because they know they’re wearing the right thing that works perfectly for them. Looking good adds pep in your step, more umph to your stride, and more confidence in your strut…and isn’t that what we all want?!
I originally created this course because I kept seeing 'excess' - in my clients' closets, at the stores, in the newspapers and articles I read....everywhere! I read one book in particular and it reminded how much fashion contributes to overall waste and environmental pollution. The World bank estimates that the fashion sector is responsible for nearly 20 percent of annual industrial water pollution! I'm offering this course as a way for EVERY person to begin thinking differently about the 'throw away' items they purchase and how to be part of a beautiful landscape 50 years from now because, at our current rates of consumption, there won't be much to talk about in future generations. I want to give EVERYONE a chance to walk into a room, be stylish and have a clear conscious...
A sign you're headed in the right direction!
Throughout the course, I'll share not only some great brands that are doing responsible things but also some key words like "organic" that let you know you're thinking about fashion differently....more responsibly so, CONGRATS!
Let your look speak volumes!
It's a t-shirt - a simple thing that most of us don't think twice about but, do you know what goes into creating that piece of cotton that you rock to worl, to bed, on the weekends...? A ton of water (in the course, I'll tell you exactly how much!) and maybe you'll think twice about how many you buy and how you discard them...
