Dressing for personal and professional success does not necessarily mean wearing expensive designer clothes or sporting the trendiest hairstyles. Making a good impression is all about looking and feeling your best. Sacramento’s top personal stylists and shoppers can get you there with some TLC designed just for you.
Chantera Gunn, Personal Shopper, Stylist & Organizer
Sacramento, CA 95834
Chantera Gunn knows it can be challenging to look and feel great while juggling multiple responsibilities. She offers a variety of services to assist men, women and children from all over the Sacramento region. From evaluating and organizing closets to complete personalized makeovers, Gunn provides clients with a new, positive outlook and appearance. A single mom herself, Gunn assisted many of the women she met while working in the Nordstrom children’s department. “You tend to lose yourself in your children,” she says, and would often ask “How about something for you too?” She has dressed brides and entire wedding parties, including a canine ring bearer, and knows that high-end price points are not for everyone. One of her unique services is to help clients resell well-made items that they no longer wear.
Karri Grant, Image Consultant
2015 J St. Suite 201
Sacramento, CA 95814
Karri Grant is an expert in styling for career success, abiding by the rule that attire should “fit, flatter and function.” Grant, who says that the majority of her clients are executives, lawyers and politicians, also gives guidance on looking polished during non-work hours. “Comfort is kind of a dirty word to me,” she confesses, “because comfort often means sloppiness.” In addition, Grant has provided “image branding” for businesses, including restaurants, Sutter Health and Cache Creek Casino. Dress codes can be difficult to decipher, so Grant offers guidelines and recommendations to help people positively reflect the business they are in or in which they want to be.

Fair Oaks, CA 95628
Jacqueline Gorre knows that everyone wants to look good, but may feel uncomfortable about using a personal stylist or image consultant. “It isn’t about vanity though,” she explains, “it is about looking and feeling your best.” Gorre’s services include identifying the colors that make you look “healthy, vibrant and youthful” and defining the shapes and styles of clothing that will best flatter your figure. Finding the right colors and style for an individual’s cosmetics, accessories and hair are important, and Gorre can make it happen for people of any age. She can take a client shopping or do the shopping for them; many of her established customers call throughout the year to request new looks for seasonal changes and special events. Gorre has styled brides and wedding party members, as well as people going to galas, interviews, proms, vacations, fashion shows and more. For those planning a special date night, Gorre can provide clothing, styling and makeup “to make them beautiful and send them on their way.” She is available 24/7 for consultations.
