"I needed some sprucing up for a life that includes working as a freelancer (read: sometimes I'm in corporate meetings, often I'm at my dining room table or Starbucks), being a mom & wife, volunteering at school, doing too many things at once, and still trying to show my creative side. Kristin first helped me discover new colors that suited me (I thought I could not wear yellow at all till Kristin pointed out I should ... and I have gotten so many compliments on my new yellow top!) and picked out so many great clothes on our shopping trip that I wound up going back to buy the ones I didn't get the first time.
I was skeptical about whether a consultant would make me be too conservative, or want to put me in heels all the time (OK, in full disclosure, I think she would have liked it if I wanted to wear heels all the time ... but she was totally cool and non-pushy when I said that's not going to happen). But instead I came home with new outfits that feel -- to paraphrase the old ad tagline -- like me, only better! My husband thinks I look great, a stylish colleague compliments me every time she sees me, and even my 88-year-old grandma told me, "Those are some nice sharp jeans!"
The only downside was that the new clothes looked so great, my old look seemed baggy and crappy, and so I got rid of almost everything new and sort of blew my budget ... but it's so worth it. Kristin's attitude is also so positive, professional and friendly that it was a totally unselfconscious experience to be brought up to date and into a much more attractive -- and fun -- place in my fashion life."

"Thank you! I got so many compliments! I felt great and so good in my skin! Couldn't have done it with you! The other day I wore an orange-ish shirt and colbalt blue trouser pants - HOT and springy! I can't believe that I actually had the confidence to wear that! Thanks girl, keep up the good work!"

"I can’t recommend Kristin and her services enough, and trust me she
will become your go to fashion girl…she is amazing!
I recently sought out a professional to help me consolidate my time,
money and efforts in creating an image and style that fits my new role
as a momma. I did a style consultation with both Kristin and another
image consultant in town so I could compare and pick my favorite, and
I just absolutely loved Kristin! I left her consultation feeling very
confident and comfortable with her ideas for me. She really customizes
your look rather than just proposing the latest trend. She focused on
colors, styles, images and other ideas that highlight my features,
personality, and lifestyle. I came away with some really great
pointers and tips, and I’m really excited to continue working with
Overall she is very personable, professional, pays attention to
details, listens carefully and genuinely cares. She is also very sweet
and fun, but can still give good honest and constructive feedback,
which is important because when I only have 5 minutes to put myself
together I’ll know with confidence that whatever is in my closet I’ll
look good in.
Her services are truly worth every penny, and the time spent with her
is very valuable. She's a wonderful stylist who is very passionate
about her job and her clients....you can clearly see this in her

"Kristin is great. When you're growing up, they teach you math, science, history...etc. Unless you plan on dressing up in historically accurate period attire, there's a big lack of "how to dress yourself" in the school system.
I went to our initial consultation and learned a ton of great information about what colors work together, what styles are in and timeless, and what ever man needs in his wardrobe. Most importantly though, how all of this applies to me.
Even more important, Kristin went personal shopping for me and picked out a ton of really great stuff for me to try on. I was the Julia Roberts to her Richard Gere. I had a great time trying on things I would have never picked but looked really great.
I came out of the experience with a solid base of items that work together to give me a ton of amazing combinations for anywhere from casual to dressy occasions.
If I didn't move back to San Francisco, I would employ her services a few times a year.
Kristin is awesome. Go with Kristin. You won't be disappointed."

“Very professional, punctual, and a pleasure to work with. Kristin also has a big heart and cares about each and every client.”

"Kristin came highly recommended to me by a friend and she delivered! I purchased the complete style package and throughout the process, I felt that I not only learned how to dress for my body and how to build my best wardrobe, but I also built a relationship with Kristin, as someone who genuinely cares about the people she works with. I can confidently recommend her 100%."

"Kristin, I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed our shopping trip! I am so happy with everything you selected and I am having a blast wearing my beautiful new clothes! I won't lie and say I have not been back shopping, but since I met with you, I am much more selective about what I pick out! You are truly gifted in what you do and a real pleasure to work with! Thank you again."

"I purchased a deal for a style assessment and 1 hour of personal shopping with Kristin on WeeklyPlus.com. I honestly didn't know what I was going to expect but I figured it couldn't hurt. I learned more than I could have ever imagined. Kristin taught me so much about my current wardrobe and how to expand on that. She completely changed the way I think about shopping."

"I can't believe that this actually happened. I had such a fabulous time at the shopping trip! Yesterday I mixed old clothes w/ new tops/bottoms - my confidence is crazy :-)"
- Eve S, October 12, 2011
"I really appreciate how you take so much time to make sure that your clients are happy. I know that I was a bit frustrating to work with because I am so picky but you were great and showed such patience and kindness. I can tell that you truly love what you do and it really shows when you are working. Thanks Kristin"

“Kristin empowers women to feel beautiful from the inside out. She taught me about finding my personal style and helped me to weed out old clothes that didn't reflect my beauty or personality. She pre-shopeed for me and all I had to do was show up and try on the beautiful clothes she picked. Best of all, she loves her work and it's uplifting to work with someone who is passionate about what they do.”
-Susannah C, August 23, 2011
"Kristin is amazing at what she does and I absolutely would recommend her to anyone who wants a little help in the wardrobe department. I usually hate shopping but Kristin made it easy and fun (because she picked out clothes that actually looked good on me). I will surely be back again in the spring for another shopping trip. Thanks Kristin for helping me to go into fall feeling good about my wardrobe."

“I highly recommend Kristin Golden as an image consultant. I was impressed with her talent for style. I have modeled in NYC, Miami and California and was relieved to meet Kristin. Finally a top fashionista in Colorado. I am always looking to Kristin for her expert advice on what to wear for an event or shoot. She has an eye for fashion and helps me with out of the box ideas. It's also a bonus that she has charisma and such kindness. These qualities make working with her a wonderful experience. I am also impressed with all her hard work. She has done remarkable work for me and 2 other of my associates. Look forward to working with her again.”

“Kristin exceeded my expectations. She was able to transform my current wardrobe, help me purchase new items, and in doing so transform my self image. It was a head to toe makeover. While shopping with Kristin I realized just how many style mistakes I was making. I feel better and look better. Most importantly I now show up for work looking like the professional that I am.”
~Anthea M, March 8, 2011
“Kristin is a true joy to work with! She knows her field inside out, and she is patient [some of us need a lot of help!] and creative. Kristin brings her "A" game every time, and her recommendations are spot on. If you are looking for an image consultant, you could not do better than Kristin. 110% satisfied.”
