Testimonials

Since working with Elysha I have no more self doubt about what I wear. I’m putting on clothes that I’m comfortable in, and that match me. And what I’m hearing from others is, YOU LOOK GREAT!

Maureen Faul  //  Career Coach

Before working with Elysha, I felt frumpy and uncomfortable in my clothes. Most of them didn’t fit well since my body changed with peri-menopause.

 I finally decided to treat myself for turning 50! With Elysha’s help, I was able to identify areas of my body I wanted to flaunt and learned how to highlight them as well as how to downplay other areas. I liked Elysha’s approach and enthusiasm with sharing her knowledge about style and she helped me develop confidence.  She really helped me figure out my style, highlight my assets and feel good about my clothes again.

Before working with Elysha, I felt really stuck and like I’d given up. I knew it was time to do something because I literally had no idea what I was going to wear outside of my house after spending most of the past year inside, wearing black. 

 

Elysha helped me gain so much more than just some new clothes. I feel so much more confident. I feel my style groove coming back, and I feel so much more motivated to look beyond wearing the same old thing everyday. Her process helps you find your own personal style— that you already have. So buying clothes and styling are so much more streamlined because they come from who you are.

Elysha helped me refine my style during a time of tremendous change for me: graying hair, severe weight loss, and a growing new career.

Prior to working with Elysha my clothing choices focused on trying to hide flaws (my imperfect tummy and muffin top).

After working with Elysha, I reclaimed a lot of my time. (Time I wasted trying on multiple outfits before deciding what to wear, wasted time shopping for things that didn't work for me, and wasted time returning the items I bought.) Now I have the knowledge of what looks good on me and I know how to accentuate the positive about my body. I feel more confident. This allows the real me to shine.

Erin S.  //  New Jersey

Before working with Elysha, I felt limited in my style. I wore the same style of slacks (and colors!), the same work shoes every day, and then I just changed out the tops. I wanted to be more stylish, but I didn't know where to begin. 

 

My biggest win from working with Elysha was learning how to recognize style elements in clothing.  I never knew the "tech" of styling.  For many this comes naturally, but I had to be taught how to look and identify certain elements and how best to pair them with other clothing elements.  I look at clothes much differently now.  And once I learned my colors and formulas, shopping became easier.  I knew what to look for and didn't feel overwhelmed shopping.  It's an entirely new game - on a completely different level - than what it was before working with Elysha.

I needed to "rediscover" some items that had been gathering dust in my closet and learn how to put things together differently, but also add a bit more pizazz to the mix by getting back into skirts, dresses and bolder choices.

Elysha's process was very individualized, yet structured. I was emboldened to try a few new things I never thought I would. Not because I felt pressured, but INSPIRED by my new outlook (via Elysha). Getting suggestions for how to put things together differently, whether it is a color combination or items you never thought of putting together was INVALUABLE.

Elysha really helps you pin down what your individual style is so you understand how to choose clothes that let your unique personality shine.

Marlo Hill  //  California

I had not been intentional with my clothes for 13 years. I viewed clothes as frivolous expenses, and I took the cheapest routes to get clothes—I mainly shopped thrift stores or sale items and I’d take anything given to me.  I realized that years of wearing cheap clothes caused me to have a frumpy style.


Working with Elysha is like investing in a college course. It’s knowledge that you’ll never forget. I can apply what I’ve learned from her for the rest of my life. So when I was considering working with her, I saw the experience paying for itself.

I feel like I have way more to wear than ever before, and that’s after you helped me get rid of 5 extra-large bags of clothes!

You are so friendly and easy to spend time with. You have such a talent for breezing through an entire store, and identifying just a handful of things I should even spend time trying on. You have a nice standard for what warrants spending my money on. You really took the time to understand my lifestyle.

Julie Shah  //  Texas

Elysha gave me brilliant recommendations in an easy and clear way for how to play up the areas I love about my shape, and play down the areas I struggle with.

I love that I can now go shopping and look for exactly the types of clothes that I know will flatter my shape, and 9 times out of 10 they do exactly that. For Elysha has helped take the guesswork out, and the dread of going into the fitting room to be bitterly disappointed. Thank you Elysha!

Before working with Elysha, I didn’t know what my style was. I thought I was just a mom who needed to get out the door looking as polished as possible. 

But now, after this experience, I have uncovered my identity. I have a new understanding of my body and who I am, and what I like to wear. I know what clothes look good on me, and how to put it all together into a style that’s mine.

Jessica Loparco  //  New York

Elysha changed my world - she literally transformed my closet!

Where I once thought I had nothing to wear, and was prepared to buy more, my session with Elysha revealed that I have a variety of current, comfortable outfits. She has an exquisite eye for style, a true understanding of the relationship between self and style, and is an all around extraordinary person to work with.

Going through my closet with Elysha was energizing!

She brought her warmth and charm into my home and rejuvenated items in my closet. By the time she left I had so many "new outfits" all from my own wardrobe. Elysha is also an invaluable source to shop with, and fun to boot! She kept me on track, yet there was room for inspiration at the right moments. Elysha's shopping advice has influenced the way I shop now, so much so, that many of my bad shopping habits are no longer there.

Elysha’s styling talent has been a major contribution to the many photoshoots we’ve worked on together.

She has a strong sense of style, and brings a great energy to the set. I have witnessed many clients and models relax while working with Elysha as she ensures everyone looks amazing.

Elysha’s styling process is not just about making room in your closet which is an amazing bonus of course! !

I can literally slide my hangers back and forth with plenty of space to actually see what’s in there! But more than that it’s about identifying who you are today, with love and acceptance. And finally letting go of who you once were or think you should be. Not only did Elysha’s system help me to unload and let go of the physical crap that no longer serves me and literally holds me back and weighs me down, it lifted me. I literally feel lighter and unburdened. I realize now that by having less I actually have MORE because I can see and access and utilize the things I DO have.  After clearing out the crap I can see clearly what is there to help express the me I am today.

Working with Elysha exceeded my expectations. She's fun, thought provoking, and her expertise shines through with her extensive feedback!

As a singer/songwriter who has been working in the music industry for years, I can say without a doubt that Elysha Lenkin is my favorite stylist to work with.

She has an exceptional eye for creating looks that are both relevant and forward thinking, and has helped me greatly in the development of my style and brand as a performer. Elysha is also lovely to work with, incredibly professional, and has an intuitive way of knowing and coming up with exactly what each client and circumstance desires.  I love working with her and plan on working with her for years to come.

Katy Pfaffl  //  Recording Artist & Broadway Actress

Thank you again for the best day of styling I’ve ever had. My goodness did you nail me!!

Liz Vaccariello  //  Editor in Chief


This was one of our best events.

Elysha was so clear, positive, and nonjudgmental. She provided oodles of pragmatic approaches to forming a signature style while being positive and inspirational. Thank you for this presentation!


Elysha understands how lifestyle meets fashion and style, and considers the entire person when attacking the Style Reinvention.

She can work with any budget because she knows high fashion does not have to mean high credit card bills. She is warm, kind and real, and when you invite someone into your closet, which can be a very personal experience, you want to know it’s someone you can trust.

Elysha and I "shopped" through my closet and reinvented my wardrobe - on zoom!

I was desperate for a closet cleanout! Clothes I hadn't worn in years were cluttering up my closet, and I was struggling whether to throw them out. There were shirts, skirts and pants that I liked, but couldn't figure out how best to wear them. Elysha helped me with all of that! She really has an eye for fashion. She put beautiful outfits together for me that I never would have thought of wearing. And I was having so much fun I wanted to keep going even after my time had ended! Working with Elysha as an online stylist, and being on zoom didn't affect the quality of our time. It felt like she was right in the room with me. She was so kind and fun to work with. I highly recommend her!

Marci Cheary  // New York

Before working with Elysha, I had some clothes that I really loved, but never quite knew how to wear them, or what to wear them with, or even if I should be wearing them.

With Elysha’s help, I was able to create so many new outfits with items I already had in my closet. I felt like I was shopping in my own stash of clothes!  Her years as a successful fashion stylist shine through in her very customized approach - her advice is based on my lifestyle, taste & body shape. Our session was so fun - it felt as if we were simply playing in my closet & the time went by much too quickly. Elysha’s energy is fantastic and infectious in the best possible way - fashion can be fun! I feel inspired by my clothes again and am back to being excited about my closet.

Elysha always comes to mind when I have real people portraits.

She’s got great taste and knows how to create one-of-a -kind outfits that will flatter any figure. Her upbeat energy is contagious, and she makes everyone feel comfortable and positive. Her wardrobe fittings are fun!
In the 5 years that I’ve been hiring Elysha, I’ve seen many people transformed by her styling.
