Recently I’ve had inqui
ries about the different members of the RLS team and so I thought, let’s post some introductions! Sometimes I forget that we don’t know all of you personally. This month I’d like you to get to know Kyle, one of our stylists, better.
Up first: Stylist, Kyle Dunphy
Hometown: Annapolis, MD
Alma Mater: American University
Years with RLS: Three
Specialty: Creating capsule wardrobes, reinventing and refreshing personal style, shopping for college graduates’ first jobs
Favorite Item in her Closet: Her black Madewell blazer. After losing it two years ago, she thought she’d never see it again. However, for her birthday last year, her boyfriend miraculously found the exact blazer in the exact size on eBay never worn from a Madewell sample sale! She is also really into the sneaker trend and has about a dozen pairs of Nikes, Supergas, and Vans.
Item at the Top of her Shopping Wishlist: A Jumpsuit!
Hobbies: Nail art, coloring, and baking cookies from the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook with her berry-colored Kitchenaid mixer.
One client recently wrote us: “Thank you SO much for sending Kyle over this afternoon to do my closet. WOW was it a fantastic experience. Kyle was professional, positive, thoughtful, honest, calm, and confident. She took the fear out of the process for me and definitely gave me some great ideas. I rid my closet of all things that did not fit, were too worn or were out of style (incidentally helping our end-of-year tax situation in terms of Goodwill donations!). Now, only appropriate clothes are left, and I can actually SEE them all in my closet. I feel more confident in making my daily clothing choices, because I know what I’m choosing is well put-together and appropriate. Kyle also helped me figure out what colors to focus on in the future and gave me ideas of things I can consider purchasing to fill in my wardrobe holes. Finally, she brought my scarf collection back to life-several beautiful scarves were just sitting unused in my closet, and now I know when and how to use them appropriately. All in all, a fabulous process!”
