MY PHILOSOPHY IS SIMPLE:

“CLOTHES TALK EVEN WHEN YOU ARE SILENT”

“STYLE IS NOT EXPENSIVE, AND FASHION DOES NOT HAVE TO BE.”

I have a feeling you’re ready for a change. You’re not the same woman you were (in a good way), and  your look has some catching up to do. Your style and your confidence simply need a reset—and a strategy.

It’s time to walk in the world like you own it! Because you and I both know there is nothing more powerful than a well-dressed woman.

Regardless of your size, budget or phase of life or career, confident, individual style is completely possible, trust me. 

thank you for stopping by!

“I Was Both Impressed And Inspired By Robin’s Professionalism, Expertise, And Enthusiasm For Making Sure Every Piece Of Clothing I Put On Looked Great. I Especially Appreciated How She Really Listened To What I Was Saying And Incorporated My Preferences And Ideas Into Whatever She Picked Out."

More Testimonials

While I’ve created my dream career, I can honestly say at one time in my life it was just a little girls dream. But fortunately, fashion saved me. When I stepped onto the campus of San Francisco State University, I had no idea where college would lead me. But an industrial technology course introduced me to what quickly became one of the first loves of my life—and that was manufacturing and fashion. I came as an oversized jean, Birkenstock and t-shirt wearing freshman. I left a woman on a mission to define her own path to success, to take the fashion world by storm and to look damn good and confident doing it. My life changed the day I put on a suit, and took complete control of my image. Within 6 months I was chosen to start traveling the world, and I have never looked back. 

Over the course of my 25 year career in the fashion industry, I’ve done it all—from a Designer Bridge Buyer for a major retail department store to an International Production Manager for designer labels. In every one of those roles, success meant driving the style choices of shoppers on a global scale. With every step in my career, I’ve been helping people choose clothing that makes a statement about who they are. And I absolutely love it.

POLISHED is very personal to me. This company is not only a culmination of my industry experience, but it is a reflection of my life. Every major milestone of my life, from an entry-level associate to executive to entrepreneur, to wife and mom, and everything in between, required me to redefine my personal style to reflect the “Robin” I wanted the world to see. I meet women every day who are in the midst of transitions in their lives, and I know exactly where they are and what they need because I have been there. I love putting women in clothing that makes them feel beautiful and watching them enter the next phases of their lives and careers with confidence.

POLISHED is my passion, and I'm extremely blessed and grateful to live it out in everything we do for our clients.

"My passion for fashion truly rests on seeing others look beautiful and confident while achieving their personal goals."

K. Raney

I called on Polished Image when I was getting ready to start a new job in a new city. Working with Robin gave me the guidance and resources I needed to refresh my wardrobe and overall appearance with intention and confidence. Our initial consultation was thoroughly informative, body positive, and fun. I came away with a practical set of clear guidelines I will use season after season. And the Virtual Pull was a terrific follow up - it gave me a jump start and introduced me to new online stores and designers I just love. I also was able to edit my existing wardrobe with clarity around what worked and what didn't and *why*, freeing me to let go of many things that really weren't Me at all.

"I love how confident and put together I feel going in the office now."

C. Matthews

Since our meeting, my attitude about myself has changed. Not only are your pointers greatly appreciated, but your understanding and empathy for what it means to be a working mother who has to invest time back into themselves is inspiring. While I am an exhausted mommy, you have given me the tools to not look like it AND receive unsolicited compliments to get me through the day. 

"You broke down all the things I should be wearing, colors, and styles and made shopping so much easier for me."

T. Hart

My work colleagues have definitely noticed.  It’s exciting to have so many high quality options, taking the guess work out of what I wear each day. So happy I found you.

Thank you!!

"I’ve been wearing my new pieces—and getting a lot of compliments!"

H. Snead

You have renewed confidence in me! My mother-in-law just visited and said it looked like a lost a lot of weight (I haven’t, it’s the clothes).- The jogger pants I really thought I was going to hate are now a weekend staple. I’m so glad you got me out of my comfort zone. I do not find myself struggling between the office and kid sporting events anymore.  Thank you!

"Wow--the clothes are a big hit with my husband! And my daughter tried to steal that green jacket as soon as I got home (I didn't let her!). I had so much fun wearing my new casual clothes to a concert on Friday and business casual to a dinner on Sunday. And here at work this morning I have gotten many compliments already."

"I have some swagger in my step!!!"
