Confession: Style is something that I once struggled with. I had a horrible habit of using clothes to blend in as an attempt of looking and feeling “normal”. Due to my height and awkwardness, I didn’t want to draw any additional attention to myself. So I hid behind my own “Invisible Wardrobe” of jeans and tee shirts.
As I grew older, experienced some life and did a lot of soul searching, I eventually overcame my fear of being seen. And getting to this point had a lot to do with changing my wardrobe. I finally stopped hiding behind the basics and started wearing clothes that flattered my body and reflected my personality.
The better I dressed, the more my confidence grew.
And that’s where the magic happened. I tried things I would have never tried before: fitted silhouettes, bright colors, even fancy high heels! While before, I would look at those items and think “I could never/would never/should never wear that” they were now more “me” than I ever would have dreamed.
As my outside appearance improved, so did my inner confidence. And then so did my life.
After studying Economics at Georgetown University, I spent 10 years working at the corporate offices of some of the world’s biggest retail brands: The Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, and Carters, Inc. While there, I grew several businesses with my knowledge of merchandising, apparel production, pricing strategy and international development. (So I know a whole lot about what makes a garment a good investment and when it will probably go on sale! )
But I wanted more...
I started Wider Style to help other women make the same transformation I did and to help them finally SEE themselves. All of themselves and their inherent radiance and beauty. I want other women to know that being stylish is OK and that it is safe. I use my diverse background to work with professional women throughout the world and help them understand that being seen as a well put together and attractive woman doesn’t detract from their intelligence or professional accomplishments, but in fact enhances them.
So I’m not here to push you into the hottest styles or trends just because they’re hot. I’m here to help you finally see yourself through clothes. Trust that the wardrobe I build for you will be clothing with high value, great quality and high usage at obtainable price points. The items we find may be designer or they may be from a discount store, or even a consignment store, but all of them will be right for YOU: your personality, your body, your lifestyle, your professional goals and your budget.
I will be there every step of the way not only by transforming your wardrobe but also helping you embrace your style vision in mind, body and spirit.
“My niece loves Morgan. Morgan takes her shopping and keeps her wardrobe updated. Charmaine even Sends a photo of an outfit for an event to ask Morgan’s opinion. She has given her a whole new look, added color, and increased her confidence in buying on her own. Charmaine started working with Morgan the same time she had her last surgery (to put in expander that failed first time around) after a double mastectomy. And after losing my Oldest sister–her mom–from Alzheimer’s, Morgan was the best thing that happened to Charmaine last year. She has been a real blessing at a particular low point in her life.”
“Morgan is doing very important work in showing women how to let their light shine. Working with her was such a special, transformative expereince for me.”
Morgan has such a great eye and I am really loving my clothes. I was feeling overwhelmed but then I just started to have fun like Morgan said and having new colorful clothes has really boosted my spirit, so working with Morgan was right on time! Change can be difficult but Morgan helps with the process!
“I loved having clothes ready and waiting for me to try on!!!! By far the best thing ever.”
“You were great! You picked out clothes for me I never would have and they looked great! My confidence to try new things is awesome! You respected my style and you challenged me to try new things yet you didn’t push – I really appreciated that.”
“The experience really opened my eyes to the fact that clothing is much more than what is advertised on television and that I CAN get dressed without trying to hide what’s already there. The biggest “aha” moment was discovering what cut of clothing fit my figure. It was like walking into a new world. Morgan is simply amazing. I can’t understand how she can just look at a person and put them in a wardrobe that makes them shine. It’s her specialty for sure!”
“I’ve heard positive feedback from friends and coworkers about my upgraded style – without them even knowing that we had our session! Now they all know about Morgan, and the feedback from them has been great.”
“The cuts and styles that work best for my body type. As my weight fluctuates it’s been hard for me to still feel “sexy” in many items. Styled by Stats helped me to determine cuts that will almost always flatter my shape and that was great. I actually feel like I have MORE options to choose from now, even though we significantly downsized my wardrobe. This obviously makes shopping, packing and getting dressed much easier.”
