Today we’d like to introduce you to Sherry Farrahi.
Sherry, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
As early as I can remember, I loved clothes. Growing up, I couldn’t wait for the weekends when my mom would take me out shopping. I would be so prepared in order to optimize my shopping time. I would flip through magazines and put outfits together leading up to our shopping trips. I was always told how good I was at spending other people’s money, so I turned that into a business. In all honesty, I get such joy out of making my clients feel good, which in return makes me happy. Through my experience at Nordstrom, I saw how curated outfits could really make someone feel better. In college, the girls on my floor would come to my dorm room and ask for style/shopping advice. After seeing that so many people wanted my shopping help, I figured I would offer my services. Naturally, I was good at finding the best deals and outfits for people.
My closet organization and wardrobe consulting business was derived from encounters at Nordstrom. My clients would buy a great blouse or pair of pants from me but struggle with creating head-to-toe looks. After seeing this common theme reoccur, I started offering my closet assessment and wardrobe consulting services. I would shop their closets for pieces to create fully styled looks. From there, I would photograph the looks and create personalized style books for them, so that they could have peace of mind when it came to getting dressed. I take the stress out of getting dressed! But, for me, it all comes down to my care for people and how I love making them feel confident about themselves, no matter where they are at in their life. I love the small impact that I can make on my clients to feel more confident through their wardrobes. It really is beyond clothes, and that’s why I do it.
Has it been a smooth road?
Life doesn’t have a smooth road. My main struggle was moving from The Midwest to LA and building a new network, having no connections in such a big city. It can be challenging moving to a new city and not knowing anyone. I didn’t have one client when I moved here. It made me grow as a person because I really had to step outside of my comfort zone. There was a lot of trial and error, but I’m still learning.
