What Our Fabulous Clients Say:
A STYLE REVIVE SESSION
“I continue to love my organized closet. The joy of putting together an outfit in a few minutes makes my day! Also, I spend less time shopping as I know exactly what I need without making impulsive purchases just because an item might be on sale. I owe it all to you, Shelby!! I’m so looking forward to your next visit to empower me to be stylin’ in the spring and at my daughter’s wedding. Thank you so much again.” ~ Sally B.
A STYLE REVIVE SESSION
With Artist Andrea Henning: Style and Art
”Yesterday Shelby came to my house for a “Closet Consult” and even though I have known her over a year now, I somehow felt intimidated by the thought of her coming into my personal space. However, the experience turned out to be just as warm and comfortable as Shelby herself is. The unexpected first step was to remove my broken closet doors, which Shelby explained were literally “cramping my style”…. What a relief to see all my clothes after years of digging in the dark.
Throughout our time together, Shelby offered me very simple, or I should say attainable ideas for bringing in more style (and fun) to my wardrobe and ideas for outfits that I hadn’t thought of. I came away from my consult with a list of items that I could add to my wardrobe for as little or as much as I wanted to spend, ideas for mixing and matching different pieces, a feeling of lightness for having validated getting rid of a few things I’ve been holding onto, and a whole new look at how what I wear truly represents who I am and who I am aiming to be”. ~ Andrea H. Artist and Graphic Designer, Portland
A STYLE REVIVE SESSION
“Shelby, you’re amazing. My time with you was well spent and was like hanging out with an old girlfriend. During the consultation, I was able to regain a sense of self, refocus my style sense, and recalibrate listening to what I like and what feels good to me. I was affirmed in my style choices and encouraged onto new ideas, combinations and practices that go far beyond just getting dressed. Thank you again and again. You’re a great resource to any woman in need of an expert in this area.”

“Thanks so much for the wonderful day! I truly felt like a VIP! I’m so impressed with your professionalism and knowledge – you’re incredible! I am amazed at how much we accomplished in a relatively short amount of time and feel so excited about my new clothes and the progress we made focusing my style. Thank you so much for helping me curate my old clothes and helping me select new additions to fill the gaps. In addition, I feel like I learned so much from you today that will help me be more focused when shopping on my own (although I vow I will never shop for jeans without you again!). ~ Tiffany, Lake Oswego
A Special Request from VIP Client:
As executive director and friend, Ann Powers, asked me to help her with putting together a perfect outfit for her to wear as the ED and MC at the very special Anniversary Celebration of Fishtrap, 25 Years of Writing and the West.
“Thanks so much for your help putting together a great outfit for last night. I got lots of compliments on it! I’m so glad you came to the event too.”
Executive Director, www.fishtrap.org
(The event was inspiring in itself, but Ann’s presence brought it to new heights. Her hair looks fabulous, but check out the scarf! ooh la la!)
“Working with Shelby Rice is like working with an angel. She is so authentic, so intuitive,….so stylish! She walked to my door literally looking like she just stepped off a plane from Paris. I got to be the beneficiary of her creativity and expertise in not only how to make my closet a room I actually want to be in, but a space that can even become a sanctuary. We accomplished so much and the time flew by. The work we did together created such a positive shift in my life…and most importantly, she is kind and nurturing and treats her clients with so much respect and class. She is worth every penny…and them some!” -Julie Lampros, Portland, Julie Lampros Skincare
“When a student is ready, the teacher appears…To be honest, I didn’t realize what a dysfunctional relationship I was having with my wardrobe and closet. I assumed the negative feelings I had about my closet space and the items in it were a normal part of life. I never imagined that my closet could become a place of beauty, encouragement, and light! Shelby was able to transform (in just two hours) my closet and my understanding of my personal style. She gently and respectfully introduced me to a woman inside of myself that had been lost. Shelby was in no way “pushy” or opinionated. She ever so delicately handled my insecurities and doubts about my clothing and style and redirected them to more positive truths.
Today, I enjoy a renewed confidence and am having fun being reacquainted to my “authentic self”. My closet has gone from a dark, boring, afterthought to a bright, beautiful space – filled with things that bring me pleasure and peace! I feel like I am walking into a boutique when I enter my small, but powerful, closet space. I am married with two young boys and this is a space that is ALL MINE and ALL ME!
It does not matter if your closet is small or large. I does not matter if you feel well-organized already, or like me, drowning in piles of clothes never worn. All it takes is to be open to the possibility that change is good and to believe that it is truly powerful to Know Thyself. I believe that Shelby has a unique gift. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to know her and learn from her. Of course, this is a journey and a process. However, I look forward to every step. I am grateful that Shelby was sent to serve as a teacher and gentle guide concerning this area of my life.” -Cheri Carandanis, Happy Valley, OR.
“Shelby came to my home to help me to evaluate my clothes so see what was working and what wasn’t. My outcome was to be able to dress easily. I would like to not have to think about clothes too much but would like to look as if I had! The word I used was EASE!
Shelby came in person to help me to look over my closet and the experience itself was most enjoyable. Frankly, the thought of having anyone see my less than tidy closet was a little daunting and yet Shelby made me feel very comfortable. I learned a lot about closet organization for ease, and Shelby pointed out what suits me best as well as helped me to know why certain items in my closet were seldom worn, making it easy to let go of the less flattering styles and make much more room and space for the winning articles.
I would recommend Shelby for any woman who would like a supportive, knowledgeable expert with a gentle manner to help you to have your clothes better reflect your life. I wish I had known Shelby at transition times like once the maternity clothes are given away, or other significant changes when our wardrobe either does or ought to change.” -Bev Martin, Hillsboro, OR.
