“It’s not just the clothes,
it’s the internal transformation”
The bad thing about Shea is that she makes her brilliance and talent look easy! It’s not. We met for the shopping visit and Shea had pulled together the beginnings of my badly needed new style. Her positive encouragement helped me work with my wicked extra pounds, and her advice enabled me to make better decisions for the most flattering looks!
I’m a huge fan.Myra J.
Seattle was amazing- I loved wearing the outfits you created.Lisa
When I first gave in to trying a personal stylist, after just a three hour shopping appointment with Shea English, I walked out with 7 ready-to-wear outfits for several different occasions, including work meetings and travel. There was no pressure to buy anything and Shea made sure we stayed on task with our goals and budget.
Looking sharp for client meetings gives me added confidence, which helps my business. I’ve used Shea now for several years, she is great at pinpointing items that match my personally and taste. She just helped me finish putting together a revised four season wardrobe. I highly recommend her!
“Thank you Shea, you gave me so much joy”Rasha
Shea – thank you so much for today at Wilkes Bashford. Glad I’m working with you.
What I especially like is how you blend old world traditions (personal service, tailoring, custom made attire) with new trends (upper casual footwear, shirt-jacket,etc.). Where a lot of people go wrong is they forget the history of their craft, and only focus on the current. My deceased parents/grandmother taught me a lot of old world traditions, so the personal customization this afternoon reminded me a lot of how I grew up.Raj
I LOVED my wardrobe edit and Buyable Pinterest Board with Shea!! It was the best 3 hours and I have continued to reap the benefits for weeks to come. She empowered and educated me to make better & more fun style choices while also helping me cut items that were too junior or ill fitting. It was THE BEST and has totally kicked off a season of self care for me. The Buyable Pinterest Board was perfect for my budget and lifestyle and I have gotten so many good pieces out of it and have saved others for when I am ready to revamp again! Also was perfect timing before Black Friday and Christmas! I have recommended her to all my friends and continue to have fun with my closet!
Thursday was productive, instructive and super fun! As I said, you are very good at your job. I love a woman who gets right to it…we did waste a minute.
I got home yesterday afternoon. As I unpacked my new things, I felt so confident and excited about every purchase.
I have the whole day to myself (a treat!) and I intend to go through my entire closet. I am especially going to thin out my array of black pants.
I would like to schedule another day sometime in February/March for summer wear. Until then be well.
When I travelled from Australia to San Fransisco I knew I wanted to meet up with Shea for a personal styling experience.. Shea and I corresponded for a short while and worked out my personal style and needs, which was easy and really got me excited about my upcoming visit.
Upon meeting, I found Shea to be a lovely person and had every thing organised and waiting for me to try on. The coloured garments she chose were great for my skin tones and I tried on clothes I normally wouldn’t even look at . Not to forget that the styles and fit were fantastic. I wish I had more room in my luggage to take all the items selected for me!
I had a wonderful experience and have learnt heaps from Shea about my body shape and what to wear . I am still enjoying all the lovely clothes picked out for me. and will definitely book Shea for another personal styling session as soon as I can get back to San Francisco . If anyone from overseas is looking for a stylist I highly recommend Shea ..
Shea was a ton of fun to shop with. After curating a Pinterest board suited to my tastes, she did an excellent job of pulling items that matched my palette. What I really appreciated was that she also pulled stuff that I would never have found on my own, or would have even tried on. She listened to my feedback on items I did and didn’t like and always adjusted accordingly. The relationships she had with different stores proved to be a bonus as well as the individual attention I received felt like a royal treatment. I would definitely recommend Shea for any occasion!!Maite Castagnoli
Working with Shea has been a great pleasure from the very beginning. She is compassionate, listens to feedback, communicates wonderfully and delivered beyond both our company’s and her client’s expectations. As a firm in the finance industry, personal image is very important and we will continue to use Shea English for all our corporate and personal image needs.Tamara C.
I’ve worked with Shea several times over the course of about 5 years and every time it works out extremely well. She listens, consults, teaches, and is an expert at identifying a look customized to your personal tastes. She’s well connected in San Francisco and a real personal styling pro in every sense. For me, the difference is that she identifies looks that I never would have chosen on my own but end up loving. She’s also available for quick tips and advice during the times you are not working together. You’ll love her!Tom M.
My husband hired Shea in March 2014 as a birthday gift to me, to help choose some clothing for an upcoming trip. I also needed to add some new items to my closet for everyday wear. My communication with Shea prior to our styling appointment was prompt and professional. She provided me with websites to look at to help get a feel for my style. Through that, as well as emails and a phone call, she was able to pull lots of clothing items for me to try on at our appointment. I ended up with more new clothing than expected due to the fact that she did such an outstanding job selecting items that suited me and my needs. She chose many pieces such as shoes and accessories that I wouldn’t typically gravitate towards, but once I tried them on I was surprised at how much I loved them. It was nice to change things up a bit and add new looks to my wardrobe!
Most recently, I hired Shea again in May to style my four children for a family photo shoot. She chose all their looks and emailed me the wardrobe from head to toe! I loved it all, and she made the whole process so easy! My kids looked fantastic in their photos and were coordinated with a unique look for each. I even receive emails from Shea if she has something she thinks I might be interested in. It’s so nice to have someone to work with who has a great eye for fashion and is flexible for any budget and a variety of needs. I would recommend her without hesitation!
“I first worked with Shea in 2010 after moving to San Francisco. I wanted a wardrobe consultation, help gaining insight into the style in San Francisco and assistance on how to effectively organize my clothes for the seasons (or should I say lack of seasons). She was incredibly personable and able to tackle the challenge quickly. Shea has a way to make a person feel comfortable while going through piece after piece in your closet. She is knowledgeable about the trends of the season and incredibly creative in helping you pair existing pieces with new trends. She takes pictures of outfit ideas and sends you inspiration all while keeping your budget and objectives in mind!
Shea also helped out my husband with his wardrobe. Men can sometimes be tricky to work with, but she had a special way and he actually had fun with the process.
I recently became a new mom and knew it was time to call Shea back to help reorganize my closet and update my style to reflect my new body shape and stage in life. I can’t tell you how good it felt to part with some pieces that had been hanging out too long and gain the confidence needed to pull together my new look. I highly recommend Shea’s services and will be calling her again in the future.”Ann-HR
I must say, you know your stuff: I got a few looks (like you said I would), a teacher and mom at school said something about my outfit (like you said they would) and my daughter said something too (like you said she would)!
Yes, I am loving the looks we put together! Thank you from the bottom of my heart – you are inspiring!Misty
If you’re looking for a stylist, either professionally or personally, Shea is your person.
I first hired Shea while I was the Director of Public Relations and Entertainment Marketing at Levi’s. She worked for us during San Francisco Fashion Week to help some of our younger designers pull their looks together adding the necessary runway polish. Given her great eye and professionalism, I then hired her personally for my husband! It was the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. She took his already professional appearance to the next level — a terrific a career booster. Her sense of style reaches across all personal styles. To this day, Shea is on my personal and professional “go to” lists.Amy (Gemellaro) Jasmer
As a woman with 2 jobs, one of which a fashion designer, Shea was fun to work with, enlightening in terms of mixing colors/ patterns/ cuts, and she has been able to elevate my style and confidence to the next level. From halfway around the world, thank you Shea English!!Aiisha Ramadan
Shea has tons of energy, a keen eye for style, and her professionalism and personal care make sure you not only feel comfortable, but that you look and feel amazing! She will educate you on fit, mixing colors, patterns and silhouettes, while listening to you and understanding your needs. Shea’s work is truly transformational!Stacy London
I consulted Shea for help with my business wardrobe… she did a phenomenal job connecting me to the right stores, right brands for my body type and personal goals, and making efficient use of the time we had together. Shea is a true pro, and I’m very happy with the results.Matthew Monahan
What can I say about Shea except that she is awesome!!!! My husband surprised me in October by giving me a makeover gift. We had a big event in October that I needed to dress up for but had no time to do any shopping …. I was kind of nervous because I am not a pencil thin girl. I am a very curvy full figure, petite, mother of two that is always on the run. So my first thought was, how is she going to style me if she is not a full figured woman. Does she know what HELL I have gone through looking for age appropriate clothes for me? Does she actually know labels that fit me with clothes that work for full figured women and aren’t clothes that are just an after thought for the designer?
We set up a date to meet. Keep in mind that she was under a tight deadline, 1 week to be precise. To my great surprise she picked out the most awesome clothes! The dresses were fabulous, hip, and trendy. They were clothes that were what I had always envisioned I could wear if they just made it in my size…. MY SIZE!!!! I was no longer settling on what I would wear. I had options!!!! And not just 1 or 2 options, I really had a lot of options. Something that I’ve never encountered before. I looked like I felt! I wasn’t feeling frumpy! I was feeling beautiful! … From jewelry to make up to undergarments and shoes. It was a whirlwind of 4 hours that at the end made me cry because I have always dreamed of finding cool clothes that would fit … Needless to say, the outfit I got with Shea was a big hit, especially with my husband and I felt beautiful next to my husband that was wearing a tuxedo.Carol
Fashion is not my forte, nor something I ever really took seriously. I like to look good, we all do, but I never had the eye or interest in taking it seriously. A month or so ago I really needed some new clothes for work so I spent a few hours getting some things, actually I spent a few hours aimlessly walking around hoping to find something that worked for me, wasted my time, and got some lame shirt. The result, I decided to hire a professional, and I hit gold hiring Shea. She helped me clean out my closet, which was so helpful, but actually getting clothes was a whole new experience. Perhaps the first time I’ve enjoyed it, and the clothes she picked for me are amazing.Matt
Shea does great work for guys. Before I met Shea I hated my clothes and felt like there were only 1 or 2 things in my closet that I felt cool and comfortable in. After meeting Shea, I get compliments almost every day on my style and have a newfound eye for fashion. Simply put, Shea unlocked my potential to have great style!
My favorite thing about Shea is she is just a good person and fun to be around. She has tons of energy and it is obvious she loves this work. And for that reason above all, I recommend her to help all the dudes out there struggling with their wardrobe.Joe
Me but better. Much, much better.
As someone who’s very difficult to fit, I’ve always found shopping very stressful. Add in a playful streak with a dislike of looking cookie-cutter put-together and I’m quite the challenge.
Shea exceeded all expectations. She zeroed in on my style, advised me on what colors I look best in, explained to me where I was getting into a rut, gave me a list to pull my wardrobe together – and then there was the actual shopping. I have NEVER had so much fun shopping as I did with Shea. She made the experience a blast and we found tons of options that fit me and my style. I get compliments from strangers every time I wear the things we picked out. No lie. A fashion miracle occurred that day.Shannon
