Lizette Trujillo’s style statement the day Krissy and I met with her was a black sporty-looking men’s watch. It was a sharp contrast to the long, flowing, bright blue-green skirt she was wearing, paired with a crisp white, button-down (a closet staple, according to Lizette), and a fun locally made necklace.
Some of you might already know who Lizette Trujillo is—the owner of the former Rockin’ Queen boutique on Broadway and 6th. She closed her boutique in February, and now she’s reinventing herself as a personal style consultant. The new title comes naturally to Lizette, who often offered style advice to customers in her store.
Her first personal consultation client happened accidentally, she said, and now it’s become her new post-boutique business venture. “Everyone has their own personal sense of style without realizing it,” she explained. Lizette’s goal as a style consultant is to help people find their style—the one that gives them a positive attitude and makes them feel good.
If you’re going to meet with Lizette for a closet consultation, she prefers to start with an e-mail exchange or a phone conversation to prepare for your meeting. Her first question will be, “What is your goal?” Then, for closet consultations, Lizette will visit the client’s home and walk through their closet with them. She will probably ask you to pull out your “problem” pieces, and will look at what your closet needs and assist you with pairing pieces. “People usually haven’t visually worked it out,” she explained.
Lizette seeks to help women (and men, too!) define their personal style. She also provides advice in regards to fit and encourages clients to reach beyond their comfort zones. “I get really excited when people go out and purchase the things I’ve suggested,” Lizette said. “We all have a look we want to convey to the world.”
For Lizette, helping individuals achieve that look gives her a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. She describes it as “helping them feel good” and believes that your appearance can change your attitude toward your day.
Closet consultations with Lizette are $75 per hour, and the average consultation takes 2-3 hours. You can follow her on Facebook for style tips, updates about her business, and fashion news.
