I had fallen into style ruts of a few go-to items that worked for me. What I hadn't realized, is that I stopped buying anything outside of my "uniform" of skinny jeans with blazers and heels. I was ready to evolve and try new styles, but wanted to do it in a way that was aligned with my values. Renée didn't even blink when I said that I only want to buy sustainable or used fashion and stick to $100/month for clothes! I had no idea that I could really have it all. -Anne Parmeter | Artist
My experience was such a JOY! Renée is all about figuring out what your need. She listens to your goals, and meets you where you’re at in terms of your current closet and lifestyle. She then helps guide you in defining a path forward, which gets me so excited! -Nicole H. | Zilla Events
I hired Renée to help me clean out my closet and update my wardrobe. She was the perfect mix of coach, consultant, and best friend. She gave me the confidence to be more of who I am and showed me how to reflect that in the world. One of my best investments in 2018 for sure. I highly recommend this process and no one more talented or inspiring than Renée!

Renée Lara is an amazing wardrobe stylist! She has the innate ability to design her clients' outfits around their personal style. Renée prepared me ahead of time for our working session by creating a private vision board so that I could pin outfits to illustrate my ideal style. When she arrived at my home, we immediately started sifting through my closet. She helped me to part with the clothes that were not serving me in my personal vision and lifestyle, and quickly organized the remaining pieces. The bonus was that she sent me the photos and personal shopping list within 24 hours! I'm looking forward to working with Renée on phase 2, which includes a personal shopping session.

Renée listened to me. She didn't try to change me. She gave me confidence to embrace my personal style; which I didn't know I had. I now feel authentic and unique, and I love it! She helped me look at my clothes with new eyes. They are not just lifeless garments; they are an extension of who I am and how I am feeling. I think of Renée asking me "What do you want to say today?" And until I typed this, that question makes me pause and take stock of how I am feeling in that moment. That honest self assessment helps determine what the world will see as I walk down the runway of life.

Renée is a true Picasso of wardrobe design. She deposits a sense of renewal into her clients by using her incredible artistic nature to breathe life into all areas of their lives. Her work is life giving. Life changing! -Juliann R. | Mother Extraordinaire
I hired Renée to style me for an updated headshot and brand photography session that I was having tor the launch of my sister social media and content creation business. Renée and I talked through what kind of look I wanted to achieve. I told her that I wanted to be a bit more edgy, yet approachable which is outside my normal realm of all black wardrobe. The pieces that Renée pulled for me, while not something that I would wear everyday were pieces that made me feel confident and photo ready. I would recommend Renée to anyone needing styling or an update to their closet!

‘Renée was instrumental in helping me feel beautiful both inside and out. If you are ready to step it up a notch, feel your best, and let your clothes reflect your authentic you…you need to work with Renée Lara!’

I did this! I hired Renée Lara Style to help me clean out my closet and figure out how to start matching my outsides to my insides. It was not easy. The closet clean out WAS and overnight process, but the process of learning, experimenting, and gaining confidence in my style is ongoing. Work with Renée if you want a stylist who is also going to give it to you straight and love you up all at the same time. Work with Renée if you want to simplify your wardrobe with pieces that fit your body and your life. Work with Renée, dammit!!

I have to admit, when someone told me they wanted to introduce me to Renée at a networking event, I immediately felt intimidated. My wardrobe is a true weakness of mine and I'm often insecure with how to present myself. Renée left a wonderful first impression on me and I remember after meeting her, I really wanted to find out if I could find a way to work with her. When I finally got the courage to write her and set up the first appointment, the nerves were back and I realized that this was a lot more personal than I had originally considered it to be. Renée does not simply style you, shop with you and create cute outfits. She digs deep, finds who you or what you want to stand for and helps you dream up that powerful woman that you may feel like you want to be, but aren't completely embodying. Renée has kindly and graciously given me a different perspective about my wardrobe. The impression that I would like to make on clients, friends and family, is clearer now. As well as the feeling that I want to have when I look in the mirror. I look forward to continuing to work with Renée, as I know her worth and what she can now truly assist me with- one of those things is helping me pack for my work trips! -Kesley Ebner | Foreign to Domestic
