GET TO KNOW MELISSA
DO YOU SHOP ALL THE TIME?
Surprisingly, no! I love to shop seasonally and update my capsule wardrobe. I believe a closet should be 80% foundations and 20% trends. It's all about how you style it!
WHO'S YOUR BIGGEST FASHION INFLUENCER?
My mother! She loved to play with her style was not afraid of color or playing with her hair. The most important lesson she taught me is to dress with confidence!
IF YOU HAD TO PINPOINT ONE SINGLE EXPERIENCE THAT CHANGED YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
When I was working as celebrity stylist and one A-list celebrity refused to leave a fitting room because she thought she was too fat. She is sample-sized! That's when I realized I was feeding the beast of an image maker, when the people I styled has the worst self-esteem. I knew it was my mission to help everyday men and women love their bodies and dress with confidence.
PRESS & PRAISE
Melissa styled me to perfection and helped me with posing on set so I not only looked but felt fabulous!
ELISE JOAN MARTIN
I can’t recommend Melissa highly enough! Not only did she help me create a stunning vision for my wedding looks, she hand chose, shopped and delivered hard to find pieces at amazing prices. From start to finish, She listened to all my desires, helped me enhance my personal vision, and made every single detail come to life! She helped me transform from a yoga teacher who typically wears leggings and a sweaty ponytail, into an absolutely exquisitely sophisticated and elegant bride. I felt my MOST beautiful, and also… the most truly ‘myself’. She styled my Groom as well, and I was blown away by handsome and sharp he looked. Melissa truly made our dream wedding come to life, and went above and beyond to take all the stress and legwork OFF my plate so I could focus on my joy, not on the details. Thanks Melissa!

I think working with Melissa and with girls on their personal style encouraged them to think outside the box and be more confident. We saw a sharp rise in new members and our chapter finally hit quota after Melissa worked with our house! She’s an asset to any chapter looking to improve their confidence, etiquette, and recruitment numbers. –

Melissa is a godsend! She worked her magic on my husband and me for our engagement photo shoot. She alleviated ALL of the stress and headache of trying to find the perfect outfits etc. Melissa is not only a talented professional, but also she has a heart of gold and I consider her a dear friend now for life! I only wish Melissa could move to Texas.
DANIKA BRYSKA, IMG MODEL & CEO MODEL MEALS
Working with Melissa is truly a dream. I’m a curvy girl (5’10, size 14) and it’s sometimes hard to find things that fit me well. I find that a lot of stylists have a hard time understanding my body type and how to flatter it, and Melissa blew me away with how well she did this. I loved how much Melissa took things into her own hands. As a very busy person, I loved that she managed to style out an incredible wardrobe with little to no back and forth from me. She asked the questions she needed to ask and then took it and ran with it. Having a stylist isn’t just for the rich and famous. Using Melissa’s service no doubt saves me not just time but a ton of money that I’d typically spend on ill-fitting low-quality pieces. She is a true expert with a passion for fashion. Her top priority was that I felt beautiful and confident. And DAMN, I sure did! Thanks, Melissa!
