functional fashion

jenny greenstein

It’s simply not enough to be fashionable anymore, being functional is essential too. And while most of us wake up with a mission to look good, we have the day (and life!) to contend to, and our clothes need to fit into that. Part of the Your Soul Style process is taking the time to understand the intricacies of my clients personality, but also their day to day lifestyle to best organize a closet, and wardrobe in a way that makes sense. Getting dressed shouldn’t be stressful, or a chore, or something you wake up dreading daily. Getting dressed should help you enter the day strong, feeling empowered for what’s to come and demonstrates who you are from the inside out. What you wear should also be comfortable in both a stylistic way, and literally too.

How would you answer the following questions when it comes to evaluating your wardrobe:

  • When is the last time I wore this?
  • How do I feel when I wear this?
  • Does this item really convey my personal style?
  • Does this item make me feel happy, empowered, strong, confident?
  • Does this item really fit anymore or am I saving it for when I lose/gain weight?
  • What motivated me to buy this? Was it a trend? Did I see it on my friend? A mannequin in a boutique? A celebrity?

These are only some of the questions discussed when performing a Closet Detox with my clients. We evaluate every single item, detoxing it all down to ensure what’s left is authentically representative of you, while providing innovative ways to style what’s left, and offering a seasonal shopping list to start building from the ground up which we can go out and obtain together.

Whether you’re a working woman (or mama) on the go, a stay at home mom, or wearing business clothes on the job, but then want to head to a date night after hours feeling super sexy, we can make it happen. You deserve it!

Spring is just 3 days away, and I can’t wait to get to know you, help you detox, cleanse and reboot for the season (and life) ahead.

2017: the year of empowerment

jenny greenstein

While I don’t believe that the year has to officially change in order to get your shit together, I think we all can agree the shift feels profound, and most of us take this opportunity to initiate a reset. I’ve kicked off with transitioning my diet back to pre-baby days, have committed to exercise at least 1x a week (easy for most, incredibly difficult for me), am becoming more politically active by building a new platform @TheFutureIsFemaleMovement (join me!), set goals both personally and professionally, and overall feel this sense of eagerness. I am ready to kick 2017 out of the park, especially since now that Vida is a little bit older, I can dedicate more time to Your Soul Style again. As far as I’m concerned, things are off to a great start.

Since much of my styling work is helping women reset after major life transitions, now would be an ideal time for you to schedule a Closet Cleanse, Wardrobe Rebuild, At-Home Style Session or any of the other services I can offer you. One of my 2017 professional goals is to clearly explain to women how important it is to feel your best from the inside out. While Your Soul Style is a business, my ultimate goal is to support women in their journey towards empowerment. Ever since the election, and now in these post-Trump days where women’s rights are on the line again, I am that much more passionate about my work. I realize now more than ever how we really need to help each other rise-up. Through my styling expertise combined with knowledge in psychology and mindfulness I will help you understand your inner most self, so that it can best be represented on the outside. Like all practices of self-care, this too is a critical step in securing your confidence and self-image. And how are we going to take on the world, and teach our daughters to take on the world if we’re not empowered in our core, and in our soul? Truly, I can’t wait to work with you and help you get there. We need you now more than ever.

Contact me @ jenny@yoursoulstyle.com to chat about further details and if none of my services feel right, we can easily customize a package to match your needs.

Cheers to 2017. May this be the year to truly empower your beautiful self.

xx, jenny

the gift of empowerment

jenny greenstein

It’s the ‘most wonderful time of the year’, and I was reminded the other day when receiving an inquiry from a husband for his wife, that you too may either want to treat yourself OR someone else to a styling service. The best part about giving the gift of personal styling with me, is that it will be the gift that keeps on giving. Our work isn’t about shopping for trends, focusing only on outward appearance, or sweeping through your closet in a mindless, inefficient way, but rather it’s an educational process to help build a strong foundation of empowered style from the inside out. Maybe you (or your recipient) need a total closet detox after just having a baby, or you just got a new job and need to build a flexible wardrobe that works for personal and professional life, or perhaps you’ve never quite felt like yourself in clothing and want a style coach to guide you on how to achieve a visual representation that is in alignment with your truest self. Like all transitions, this is a rebirthing process, and a practice of self-care like exercise, therapy, nutrition or any other behavior that is about self-improvement. I welcome you to make this lifelong investment in yourself or give it to someone that you think could use it. I offer a variety of styling services a la carte or total packages that provide the full experience. And if nothing matches your needs, a customized package can easily be created. Let me know if you have any questions, and I so look forward to hearing from you.

Warmest always, and happy holidays! xx Jenny

repost: what is a style coach?

jenny greenstein

I wrote the below post on 11/3/14, but after stumbling on it this week wanted to republish, especially as we move into a new season. I’m grateful for the growth of Your Soul Style and want to explain what a Style Coach is for new readers/followers and potential clients my philosophy behind this venture because it still stands the same today as always. It’s not always clear what I do, but part of my initiative for 2016 –> 2017 is to make sure that women are aware of what I’m all about, and that I’m here to help! There are many stylists, especially in the NYC area, but what I offer is different. Style from the inside out was, is and always will be the ultimate goal, and nothing gives me more pleasure than to empower women so they don’t just look their best, but feel it too. I can’t wait to work with you! Service details here.

What is a Style Coach?

I began my personal styling business simultaneously to the launch of Your Soul Style, but the seed was planted way before it blossomed. In high school, I remember sitting up at night to create a very raw business plan contingent upon working with women to help them find their authenticity, using my skill set of understanding fashion, sense of self and style. While I didn’t have any professional experience at that point, the program organically poured out of me in a way that I could only describe as second nature. My entire life had been dedicated to a combination of self-expression, emotional health and wellness and while the ideas didn’t tangibly come together until April of 2013, the plan had always been in place. Through my experience in corporate america combined with a strong dedication to personal growth and mindfulness, my mission to embrace style from the inside out was conceived. I had spent many years focusing on the topical aspect of style, but it became critical to consider the human element. I needed to feel connected and yearned for a greater purpose. From there, the ideas that began manifesting in high school slowly started to bloom. And so I became a Style Coach. I was born to do this.

So what is a Style Coach anyway? I don’t think I’ve ever really broken it down for you guys. Similar to talk therapy, where a person becomes mindful and aware of their own behavior patterns, style-coaching is a form of style therapy. Through a one/one style coaching session, I work with client(s) to help them find their own style rhythm, starting from the inside out. While style is an extension of an inner self, feeling unstable can offset the alignment with the outer self. How we present ourselves to the world is contingent upon our emotional state. Together we break down any barriers and explore the deeper layers, by evaluating body image, self-esteem, style preferences, and style choices so I can provide techniques on how to compliment your shape, personality and taste. In this meeting, we also take a preliminary tour through your closet to evaluate and gain a better understanding of where you may be struggling. Whether you’re going through a break-up, lost weight, gained weight, recently had a baby, are pregnant, or just looking to discover your style personality, my goal is to help my client(s) find an authentic sensibility and provide tips on how to use style as a vehicle of confident self-expression and empowerment. I’m a firm believer that we are at our best, when we feel our best and that begins at our core. Mind, body and soul must be aligned.

After this Style Coaching session, I recommend moving on to a Closet Cleanse, where I help detoxify negative style habits to set you up with a strong and healthy wardrobe foundation. We will keep what’s working and toss what doesn’t, while organizing your closet in a way that makes sense and doesn’t feel overwhelming. Through this exercise I provide continuous guidance and direction on how to pull looks together from your existing collection and we create a list of key, baseline pieces which I recommend adding to your assortment. From there, we go Shopping (or I will shop for you), to find those essential pieces!

I also offer services such as helping you get ready for your wedding (including styling for the big day or the events leading up to it, such as a bridal shower, bachelorette, or honeymoon packing!), or if you don’t live locally, I can be by your virtual side and use the interweb to create head-to-toe desired looks or seasonal shopping ideas. Whatever your specific needs, timeframe, and budget, hand-picked, edited selections and coordinated outfits can be delivered to you via e-mail and revised until we find what works best. In every service I provide, there is always a strong emphasis on tapping into your inner self and ensuring that aligns with your outer self. 

I feel very fortunate to not only have been able to hone in on what I believe to be my calling, but to also have the ability to pursue it in a realistic way. In the truest of words, my dreams are becoming my reality. There is nothing more rewarding then helping to empower women to look and feel their best.
