"Thank You Robin I Appreciate Your Spirit And I Have Much Respect For What You Do As A Profession. Your Professionalism Was Outstanding And I Sensed A Real Love And Passion For What You Do And What You Bring To Women. You Have Given Me A Sense Of What Real Beauty Is Within My Own Being As A Woman. Yes, I Must Own Who I Am And What God Has Given Me To Work With. I Am So Grateful That Our Paths Have Crossed And I Look Forward To Working With You."

Marilyn Smith, Congressional Librarian – MD

"My Husband Used The Shopping Services Of POLISHED To Purchase My Beautiful Coach Handbag And Wallet. The Pick Was Perfect For Me. My Husband Could Not Have Done It Without Her."

Dr. Annette Moore, OBGYN – CA

"I Felt My Transformation Was Complete As I Put On The Outfits That Robin Pulled Together For Me. I Did Not Realize It Was Possible To Fit In As A Creative-Sensitive In A Corporate Environment, And Still Be Me, My Best Presented Self! So Much Lost Time And Heartache Could Have Been Avoided If Only I Figured Out How My Outfits Actually Signal To The World Who I Am. Robin Is A Genius; She Puts Together A Look That Expressed The Creative Me At A Fraction Of The Price That I Would Of Spent. Like Cinderella, Now I Feel Ready To Take On The World; No More Boring Work And Monday Blues!"

Sara Tan, World Bank – DC

"I Have Died And Gone To Heaven!!! You Are FABULOUS And Very Professional!!! I Don’t Know How To Express My Excitement. We Found The Perfect Jeans (I Want Another Pair!!!) And We Got My Riding Pants. I Hesitated On The “Chie Mahara” Shoes We Bought, But Now They Are My Favorite “Am Too Hot For Myself” Shoes. They Stand Out And No One In Nigeria Has Them!!! I Wear The Kitten Heel Prada Shoes You Picked To Work At Least 3 Times A Week. They Are Classic, Comfortable And Cute. They Are Also Very Practical Since I Am A Mother Of 2. I Only Regret That We Only Spent 7 Hours Together!!! Next Time I Will Fly Directly Into DC Or I Will Fly You To Me To Update My Look!!!"

Terri Bolden, Sr. Engineer – Nigeria

"I Met Robin Through A Girlfriend Who Had Been So Impressed With Her Services That She Asked Robin Do Presentation For Her Friends. I Thoroughly Enjoyed It And Was Surprised At How Insightful Robin Was About Each Individual’s Style Profile. I Had Been Wanting To Call Her To Help Me 1:1 But, Like All Working Moms, Life Is Busy And My Wardrobe Was Fine For What I Needed At The Time. Fast Forward A Year, And I Found Myself In The Midst Of Sending My Oldest Child Off To College, Changing Jobs, And The Joys (Not!) Of Peri-Menopause. I’d Spent 7 Years Working At A Very Casual Software Company And Recently Accepted A Job At More Formal Financial Services Company. Add In A Much Longer Commute, And I Knew I Needed A Change. Enter Robin. We Spent Three Hours In My Closet Assessing My Existing Formal Business Attire (Not Much) And Deciding What To Keep, What To Alter, And What To Donate. It Was A Ball! Robin Is Direct, Witty, Diplomatic, And Brilliant At What She Does And A Super Interesting Person To Boot. I Learned A Ton And Laughed A Lot.

Who Knew That I Had Such A Fondness For Big Buttons And Shiny Things!?! Most Interesting To Me Is That She Easily Identified Why I Never Wore Certain Items In My Closet Even Though I Loved Them On The Hangar. Phase Two Was A Shopping Trip With Robin. I Really Had Three Wardrobe Problems To Solve: A More Formal Business Look, Lightweight Materials (Because I’m Always Hot These Days), And Clothes Comfortable Enough For A Long Commute. Everything Robin Selected For Me Met All Of Those Criteria And Best Of All, I Both Felt And Looked Good! It Was The Most Fun — And Success — I’ve Ever Had Shopping. She Found All The Basics I Needed But Also Incorporated Pieces That Expressed My Individual Personality. I Walked Away With A Lot More Knowledge About What Works For Me (And What Doesn’t And Why) And A Brand New Wardrobe That I Will Be Able To Build On For Years. She Knows Her Stuff And Gives Great Advice On What Materials And Construction Are Worth The Price Tag And What Really Isn’t."

Elizabeth Smith, Attorney – VA

"Robin Was Able To Look At My Body Type, Skin Tone And The Types Of Clothes That I Already Feel Comfortable In And Make Suggestions. The Process Was Simple, Fun And Quick. We Spent Only A Couple Of Hours At A Mall And Visited Very Specific Stores Where She Knew Would Have The Right Clothing To Fit My Style And Budget. It Was Interesting How She Made It So Fun When I Have Always Dreaded Shopping. As A Mother And Owner Of A Small Business, She Knew I Did Not Have A Lot Of Time. She Looked In My Closet And Talked With Me To See What Type Of Clothes I Would Feel Comfortable In And Then Went Shopping With Me Around My Schedule.

I Came Out Of The Experience Feeling Like A New Woman And Everyone Has Seen The Difference.

Thanks Robin!"

Katie Martin, Business Owner – MD

"Ever Since Childhood, I Always Struggled With Dressing And Selecting Outfits That Best Suited Me. Whenever I Went Shopping, I Felt Overwhelmed, Frazzled, And Confused. I Was Also Very Self-Conscious About My Body, And Would Wear Oversized Clothing. Knowing This Was An Area I Needed Growth In, I Built The Courage To Seek Help, And Thankfully I Was Referred To Robin.

Since Our Consultations, I Have Grown Tremendously. By Having The Tools And Knowledge To Select Clothing That Accentuates My Natural Beauty, I Am Now Empowered To Project The Woman I Have Always Envisioned Myself To Be, Which Is Confident, Graceful, Poised, And Stylish. Today, People Compliment Me On My Skin, Stature, And Beauty. Thanks To Robin, I Feel Alive, Fresh, Refined, Able To Start Anew, And Capable Of Taking More Steps In The Direction Of My Destiny. I Am Grateful To Robin And Her Services. She Will Always Be A Blessing To My Life, And Truly Gifted At What She Does."

Melanie Bonner, US Diplomat – DC

"Robin, I Can’t Say Enough About You, As A Friend, And A Entrepreneur. Thank You So Much For All Of Your Professionalism, And Hard Work. The Closet Sweep That You Did For Me Was Mind Blowing! It Really Helped Me To See What I Really Should And Shouldn’t Be Wearing! I Am So Proud Of My Closet, Because Now It Looks Like A Showroom!! It Was Also Very Helpful That You Provided Me A List Of The Basic Things That I Need To Shop For. Again I Want To Say, THANK YOU!!!"

Kendra Harris, Health Professional – MD

"Hi Robin, Just Wanted To Send A Note To Say That I Thoroughly Enjoyed Our Virtual Consultation! You Have Truly Revolutionized The Way That I Shop For Myself. As A Single Parent, It Is Sometimes Difficult To Be Polished 24/7. However, After Meeting You I Realize That It Only Takes A Moment If You Have The Basics!!! My Color Wheel Is Like American Express–I Never Leave Home Without It!! Thank You So Much For Your Time! You Truly Are An Expert In What You Do! Keep Changing Lives One Polished Image At A Time!!!!"

Terrilyn Cook, Event Planner – NC

"When I Was Offered The Opportunity To Interview For An Exciting New Position That Would Propel My Career, I Needed Someone Who Could Help Me Formulate A Look That Exuded Style And Confidence. Although I Possessed The Skills And Know-How They Were Looking For, It Had Been Years Since I Last Interviewed, And I Wanted To Represent The Complete Package. The Look That You Put Together For Me For My Interview (Including The Suit, Shirt, Heels, Jewelry And Hairdo) Helped Me To Land My Dream Job. I’ve Now Been Working For Several Months With My New Firm And I’m Loving Every Minute Of It. Thanks Again For Helping Me Seal The Deal!"

Melissa De La Santa, Under Armour Corporate – MD

"I Am A 50 Year Old Manager For A Large Health Care Organization And Over The Last 8 Years I Have Been Blessed With Several Promotions, However I Have Never Been Interested In Fashion, But Knew I Needed A More Professional Look And Wardrobe. Robin’s Personal Style Consultation Immediately Identified The Colors, Fabrics And Style Needs That Addressed My Body Type And Skin Tone.

Robin Was Awesome And Has A Gift For Being Able To Customize A Simple Or Extravagant Look Based On Your Personality. The Wardrobe Purchases We Made Together Have Revitalized My Look Without Infringing On My Lifestyle. I Feel And Look Fabulous, And Have Just Been Recently Promoted. I Am Now More Comfortable When Shopping Because I Have A Greater Understanding Of What Fabrics And Colors Look Good On Me. Thank You Again For All Your Help."

Ronetta Morgan, HR Manager – CA

"Hiring Robin To Do A Closet Sweep Was A Great Investment. In Three Hours, She Had Weeded Out Worn, Ill-Fitting And Outdated Clothing, Shoes, Bags And Accessories–And Bagged Up The Tossed Items To Take Away For Donation. She Gave Me Great Ideas For Using Existing Clothing In New Combinations, So Even Though There Were Fewer Items In My Closet, I Had More Options. She Even Managed To Repurpose A Couple Of Suit Jackets–Pairing Them With Jeans And Other Pants To Update The Look. She Also Gave Me A Set Of Personal Rules To Use When Selecting Clothing In The Future, Which Will Make Me A More Confident Shopper. Finally, She Gave Me A Shopping List Of “Must-Have” Items To Update My Wardrobe For The Fall. Robin

Is A Pleasure To Work With. She’s Knowledgeable, Yet Gentle, And If You Really Can’t Part With Something, She Won’t Insist. Who Knew You Could Have Such A Good Time, And Learn So Much, By Cleaning Out A Closet!!"

Karen C., Business Owner – DC

"Robin Is Simply AMAZING! I Contacted Her Because I Felt That My Style Needed A Good Bit Of Updating And Wow Did She Deliver. I Opted For The Closet Sweep And For The Personal Shopping. Robin Evaluated All Of The Items In My Closet And Explained To Me What Was And Was Not Suitable For My Body Type. She Explained To Me The Type Of Cuts, Colors And Fabrics That Are Best For Me. During This Process, She Also Showed Me How To Create Different Looks Using My Current Items.

 After Evaluating My Current Wardrobe, We Went On A Shopping Trip. This Was A Real Treat. Robin Definitely Knows Her Stuff. The Department Store Rep Even Commented On Robin’s Talent. Robin Picked Out A Number Of Outfits For Me. She Made Sure I Had The Appropriate Number Of Basic And Fashion Items. Since I Have Updated My Look, More People Talk To Me, I Feel More Confident And I Receive Compliments Every Day. Robin And Her Team Are Professional, Focus And Efficient. The Only Regret I Have Is I Didn’t Contact Her Earlier. I’m Excited About Shopping With Her Again.”

Patrice Robbins, Human Resources Manager – FL

"You have renewed my confidence!  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!"
