Meet Emily Elliott

We’ve all flipped through Vogue, GQ and Vanity Fair and thought, “I want that look.” Who says it can only be found in Paris or New York? Emily has been involved in the retail and fashion industries for over 30 years. Based in Houston, Emily works with clients as a personal stylist helping them find the right look for their lifestyles. Emily gained her experience with a degree from Texas Tech University in Fashion Merchandising and has also worked for various major retailers and upscale boutiques.

Emily will help you identify what works, what doesn’t and what you need to pull it all together. Whether the need is styling looks or sourcing select pieces, when she is finished, you will look great and feel confident. Emily has a relaxed and friendly approach that will put you at ease, no matter what your body type, age or budget.

Wardrobe Planning

Do you have a special event or trip on the horizon and need help planning attire? Are you bored with your wardrobe and ready to mix things up? Our team has a keen eye for detail and a creative approach to pairing new outfit options for you by utilizing items that currently exist in your closet. Along with developing new outfits, recommendations will be made to enhance and refresh your current attire.

Closet Consultation

Is your closet full of clothes that you love and some you don’t know what to do with? Are you bored with your everyday outfits and feel you need a refresh? A closet consultation helps to distinguish your personal style and show you how to use it. We start by editing and then take inventory. Through this process and an assessment of your everyday lifestyle, we begin to refine and refresh your wardrobe helping to identify clothing that does not fit properly, needs to be cleaned or should be altered to fit correctly. Lastly, we show you how to select clothes that flatter and help you to create new outfits using the clothes you already have.

Personal Shopping

The goal as your personal shopper is to help you feel prepared and confidently dressed for any occasion. Our team strives to maximize your wardrobe while keeping your look current. With or without you, we will source unique items with the goal to fulfill the recommendation list we tailor for you. Working with efficiency, dressing rooms are prepared in advance and stores are chosen based on your personal style analysis, the occasion and your budget. If we are personal shopping without our client, clothes are selected and delivered to your home or office.


I have a decent amount of clothes ranging from designer brands to big box stores but I never know what to wear. Where I truly struggle is finding ways to mix things to make my wardrobe look interesting and fresh. This is where Emily and her junior stylist, Sophia, made a huge difference. Emily is a master with her knowledge and understanding of color and how to mix pieces in an unexpected way. She immediately got my aesthetic and made me see that I have plenty to wear. I also love that she doesn’t care about the label inside a garment as much as the look and fit of a piece. She suggested I have a few things altered that are now front and center in my closet. Sophia helped me achieve a trendy look yet still appropriate for my age and body. Seeking out Emily was one of the best decisions I’ve made over the past few years. Sophia was the added bonus that I didn’t know I needed!

Emily is fantastic to work with and can work miracles from afar!  Over the past 3 years, she has helped me shop for career wardrobe staples, occasion dresses, and vacation pieces.  We have consulted via text, phone, and Zoom – it has worked like a charm!  Emily obviously has excellent style and a true knack for finding “just the right thing.” After we discuss a particular need (i.e. sundresses for an upcoming vacation) she does the legwork on the shopping and emails/texts me options to consider. I was surprised how easy and successful this process was.  I highly recommend her!

As a woman in my 50s, I was starting to feel frumpy in my clothes. Emily helped me go through my wardrobe and identified styles and colors that worked best on me, cross-pollinated what I already had, and helped me select new updated pieces to add. Emily handled long overdue projects such as jewelry repairs and suggested alterations. With these annoying burdens lifted, I could start using ALL of my pieces again. Accessorizing has always been difficult for me. Emily and her team took photos of outfits with accessories for me to keep in a lookbook. All of the details to make each outfit look great are now easy to reference and remember. The stress of packing for long international travel was eliminated when Emily and her team came and put all of my packing wardrobe with accessories on racks and helped make outfit photos to take with me.  Her professionalism and taste were never pushy and always exactly the feedback I needed.

Emily has helped me with my wardrobe for the past 5 years. When I lost a lot of weight she spent 4 hours going through my closet piece by piece determining what to keep, what to have tailored and what new pieces I would need to add. She is great at solving problems, recommending what looks best and finding appropriate accessories. She saves you money by preventing you from making wardrobe errors — we all know those when we look at a garment and say “what was I thinking?”
Marcia F., (Houston, Texas) |  President of MF&A

Prior to working with Emily, choosing smart casual outfits and keeping up with outfits for evening work events was simply overwhelming. Now, I hand my worries over to Emily! She magically selects outfits that I love and gather many compliments from family and friends. Now, I can focus on enjoying myself at the events! I have enjoyed her services so much that she has also assisted both of my daughters and husband. You won’t find a stylist who is more respectful, kind, honest and helpful!

Emily was a class act! Organized, talented and professional. Her style suited all the various volunteers that were modeling for our event. She listened to them, evaluated what we needed for the show and made everyone happy. The night of the event she worked well with the event team and models to ensure that the show was a success, and it was. Emily executes everything with a polished, positive attitude.  We value her dedication to the women of Dress for Success Houston.

Emily came over, helped me organize my closet, find a coordinated up-to-date style, make smart purchases, and 3 years later I am still loving everything she did.
Shanda B., (Rochester, Minnesota) | Associate Professor of Thoracic Surgery at Mayo Clinic

As a design professional, I am with clients every day and looking my best is part of my business. When I was four months pregnant, I had a lot of anxiety about finding clothes that didn’t look like “maternity”.  Emily selected the core pieces that I wore throughout my pregnancy and saved me loads of time and anxiety. She knew where to go, which pieces I would need most, and how to anticipate fit as I began to show more. Working with Emily turned a dreaded activity into something that I enjoyed.
Julie R., ( Houston, Texas) |  Business Owner

I began working with Emily over 5 years ago. She immediately put me at ease and turned my life long dislike of shopping into a fun experience. Emily began by editing my wardrobe. She culled what didn’t work and determined what was lacking. She is always mindful of my existing wardrobe and budget. Emily has shown me how to interchange all my garments to make the most of every piece. She made a photo album of different combinations of clothing that I have found invaluable. Emily has saved me thousands of dollars in fashion mistakes and many miserable hours of clueless shopping. I now have a well rounded wardrobe that makes me feel confident and ready for any event. I only wish I had met Emily sooner.
Gayle M. (Jasper, Texas) | Business Owner

Emily was a terrific help when it came time for me to restock my casual wardrobe.  With her excellent sense of style and ability to see things that a typical guy – like me – doesn’t, I walked away with several great looks that get me.
 Mike G. (Houston, Texas) 
Emily is amazing! The closet clean out and personal shopping with Emily was fun and effective. I wear everything we purchased. Some items have become standbys for my around the world travels. Emily you are worth your weight in gold.
 Kate M. (Houston, Texas) 
Emily is really wonderful to work with. She is incredibly creative and knowledgeable while being very respectful of my individual goals, style, and budget. I really like the way she doesn’t push, but gently leads me to great choices. She has a great eye and can quickly access what works and what doesn’t; I really look forward to the time I spend with Emily.
 Katherine W. (Houston, Texas) 
My closet was doing double duty as long term storage for all those suits and shirts and things that I never really wore any more. Emily helped me go through everything. I had old favorites tailored to fit again, and also delivered five bags to Goodwill. Plus, I have a framework to help me avoid getting into that state again. Don’t clean out your garage. Hire Emily, clean your closet. You’ll be glad you did. She’s terrific.
 Bob M.  (Austin, Texas) | CEO, Strattam Capital 

I am so impressed with how Emily walked into my closet and nailed it! My thoughts were I needed to go monochromatic and create a uniform, but fortunately, Emily arrived and had me looking like I stepped out of a Gucci catalog!!! Which is EXACTLY how I envision my style to be! Thank you so much!!! I’m so excited to have found you.
