I am a native Houstonian, former teacher, personal stylist, and closet organizer. I have a closet full of clothes, shoes, and accessories that I love – I actually enjoy getting dressed in the morning – but that wasn’t always the case.
Six years ago, I was a teacher in a fashion rut.
I reached for the same clothes day after day, and I didn’t care whether or not I looked stylish. That changed when I became a stylist for Stella & Dot, a jewelry and accessories company.
I realized I needed to upgrade my wardrobe to complement the beautiful jewelry I was wearing, so I went shopping and bought a black sweater set, a grey skirt, and black heeled boots. I remember putting on a bold necklace of pearls intertwined with sparkly cupchains, tied with a pink grosgrain ribbon, and feeling like a new person!
I want you to have that same feeling – you deserve to have a beautifully-organized closet full of clothes you love and want to wear. You deserve to open your closet in the morning and feel confident that you will look fantastic in whatever you choose to wear. You deserve to feel great about yourself, and I hope Kelly Gartner Style will be a source of inspiration and encouragement for you.
