Hello Ladies my name is Casey Trudeau and I am a personal stylist in San Francisco and Northern California. I wanted to develop a website that helps all women who may not feel great about them themselves, but who want to take that step to feel and look better but not sure how to do it. Each day I will be giving shopping, fashion and beauty tips, tricks and how to steps that will start building your confidence.
I graduated from the prestigious Academy Art University in San Francisco with my BA in Fashion Buying, styling and Merchandising. I have spent close to a decade creating hundreds of looks for top retailers, from industry giants including Nordstrom and the GAP to beloved specialty stores like San Francisco’s popular Heidi Say’s boutique on Fillmore. I have also contributed to writing for Splendora.com on fashion trends and forecasting. I am now a personal consultant and contributing to the buying for small boutiques in San Francisco. I also started my own Personal Styling firm in San Francisco where my clients are based all over Northern California. My ability to translate trends into indispensable pieces that create the key- ingredient to any well-conceived wardrobe, and successfully gives that classic polished look to any wardrobe and photo shoot.
