Want To Look Your Best? Get To Know The Garmenteur

On a good day, a shopping trip can be heavenly — a stylish escape from the pressures of everyday life. But then there are those days. You know, the ones where nothing fits, or everything’s out of your price range, or you’re in a battle to the death for that last sheer cream blouse. Enter, The Garmenteur, your very own personal shopper.
Unlike a typical stylist, The Garmenteur (a.k.a. fashionista Jenna DeBord) will not only help you make over your closet, she’ll virtually help you fight the crowds with her cyber styling services. After all, her whole goal is to bring styling to the masses (that's you!) by making the industry relatable and convenient. Not sure what to wear with that new leather skirt? Snap a pic and send it DeBord’s way, and she’ll get back to you with plenty of ideas. Face time is $75 per hour or $100 for a head-to-toe look.
And that’s not all. DeBord is also on board to help you out on your big day. Between the shower and the bachelorette party, the rehearsal dinner and the ceremony, weddings mean lots of events — and lots of shopping she can help you with. If you need a closet overhaul in general, DeBord’s got you covered there, too. She’ll help you donate what you don’t need, style what you have, and tell you what you should add. The initial consultation costs $450 for a four-hour session; additional time is $75 per hour. Shorter two-hour, single-occasion-based sessions are also available for $275.
