#WCW: Marisa González of DC Style Factory

Like most of my friends in the DC area at this point, Marisa, a Stylist/Personal Shopper at  DC Style Factory, and I were following each other on Instagram before we ever met in person. We officially first met at the District Darlings’ Relaunch, but she truly made an impression on me when I got a chance to talk to her about my personal style at the Streetsense Streetmarket. I think of myself as a little clunky and awkward so having a stylist tell me a I had a cute shape/ style actually meant a whole lot to me.

At subsequent events, I could honestly just sit and talk to Marisa for hours! Both DC girls, we’re familiar with the local nuances and quirks. (Landon- BOO! Boat shoes- ALSO BOO IN THEORY BUT GIMME!) The last time I saw her, she was wearing the cutest shirt dress with bright right high top sneakers. And you know how I love a good sneaker! She’s also a wonderful mom, setting a great example for her two little girls doing a job she loves and balancing that with their school activities- her stories from volunteering crack me up!

One day, when I have the funds and the time to clean my closet first, I would love to have her over to help me with a closet audit. Although she told me that I could never be one of those capsule wardrobe girls, I would love to know that she thinks my wardrobe is lacking and see how she’d put some of my funkier pieces together. If you’re looking for styling services yourself, check out some of the many services offered by DC Style Factory- and tell them Caroline sent you. 😉 You can contact Marisa directly at: Marisa@dcstylefactory.com!
