How To Stand Out In A Sea Of Stylists?
(Washington Post) — The entrepreneur Monica Barnett has always been into fashion, and she has a knack for understanding what clothing works — and doesn’t — for different body shapes. For years she had been the go-to style consultant for friends, family and co-workers who needed help pulling outfits together. Barnett had been running an informal image consulting service on the side since 2003. Two years ago, she formalized Blueprint for Style, a Washington-based image consulting, personal styling and branding company, and began doing what she loves full time when she quit her health-care job in June 2009.
