FO30: What exactly is Ready Pretty?
JA: Ready Pretty is a personal wardrobe and fashion styling service that helps everyday women get dressed.
FO30: Who is the typical Ready Pretty client?
JA: We provide services for a variety of women, but the one thing they all have in common is they are busy! About 75% of our current clientele are working moms. Every woman wants to look great, and feel great in the clothing they put on – be it for a big meeting, a special occasion or headed to their kids’ soccer game. Unfortunately, with so many other priorities on the list, oftentimes shopping for clothes falls to the wayside and so many of our clients are unsure of how to best dress their bodies and stay in style.
FO30: What service do you provide for your clients?
JA: Very simply, we provide personalized style recommendations to our clients based on their needs. Following an in-depth style consult, we send visual outfit boards and links to our recommendations via email. Our clients can then shop for each piece or outfit at their leisure and only purchase the items they want.
We offer four distinct packages:
Ready Pretty Full Pull: A full pull is a full outfit recommendation. An example of when a client uses this would be for an upcoming wedding guest look or a few great outfits for work. From shoes to accessories and everything in between, we’ve got her full look covered.
Ready Pretty Quick Picks: A quick pick is a recommendation on just one clothing item. For example, a client is looking for a few great winter sweater options or perhaps new casual booties.
Ready Pretty Seasonal Edit: The seasonal edit is our most popular package right now. This package provides 12-15 pieces that our clients can mix and match for that given season. We show how each piece can work together and standalone to seriously upgrade your wardrobe and make getting dressed each day a whole lot easier.
Ready Pretty Closet Edit: The closet edit is currently only available for our Chicagoland area clients. With this package, a Ready Pretty stylist will come into our clients closets and help them to decide what stays, what goes and what pieces can help round out their wardrobe. The stylist will even take care of all of the clothing that is removed from the closet with a donation to Ready Pretty’s charity of choice, Dress for Success, a nonprofit organization that provides clothing and resources to women in need.
FO30: What makes Ready Pretty different?
JA: We are an extremely personalized service. Our stylists take the time to get to know each and every client – and once our clients purchase whatever clothing and outfits they like, they have access to their stylist for up to 2 weeks to ask any questions and get additional advice related to their outfit selections. It’s important for our clients to know that we’re here to help. We like to think of ourselves as your new stylish BFF.
FO30: What is the typical turnaround time?
JA: For outfit recommendations we provide recommendations back to our clients within 3-5 business days from time of consultation.
FO30: How are you sure you nail someone’s style/preferences?
JA: Through our detailed consultation process, we are able to get a very good profile on our Ready Pretty clients – understanding things like their current style, body type, likes/dislikes and style aspirations among other important details. Our stylists truly take the time to get to know each and every user via a proprietary style form and questionnaire that we’ve developed. And, our stylists are just really good at what they do!
FO30: What is the best story you have working with a client?
JA: One of my absolute favorite stories was a client of ours had just recently gone through a bad breakup – and was headed to a wedding where her ex would be at just a few weeks later. Needless to say, she wanted to look more than amazing. And we were up for the challenge! We got a handwritten note in the mail about a month later that she felt so confident and beautiful that night, because of the outfit she was wearing. At Ready Pretty, we believe that clothing can be transformative. We love helping women feel beautiful and more put together. We loved being able to help give that particular client – and all of our clients – that confidence through a great outfit. And no, she didn’t get back together with that ex…
