Gabi is a master at “The Look For Less.” She styled me for an event and I was complimented more than ever before on my outfit. Also, people kept asking, “Who are you wearing?” Little did they know it was Zara and H&M! The exercise of paring down your wardrobe is a game-changer. Gabi will help you empty your closet of anything that doesn’t make you feel great and purchase key pieces to work with the items you have left or will eventually buy. You end up saving money in the long run because they make all of your pieces wearable. No more items collecting dust in the back of your closet. One of the best things about Gabi is that she is willing to respond to my texts at all times of the day and night. If I’m having trouble putting an outfit together, I simply text her some pictures and she will advise me. Sometimes while shopping, I text her a quick pic and she will help me to decide on a purchase. Priceless!

Working with Gabi to create a functional wardrobe has been such an amazing experience. I had recently made a lot of changes in my life and realized that my wardrobe did not reflect my current life. Gabi reviewed each piece in my wardrobe with such attention, honesty and a fun sense of humour. Once we figured out what could be used and what had to go, we started to shop! This was such a fun experience and I would never have been able to pick the classic pieces that turned into so many combinations of great outfits in the styling process. I will never shop without Gabi again and I would highly recommend this expert to anyone that has a need for a new outfit, vacation wear, an event or an entirely new wardrobe. She will make sure that what you buy is cost-effective, high quality, classic, stylish and versatile. You will never have the problem of buying something you think is great just to end up getting rid of it after one wear. The experience will give you more confidence, you will have fun and get long-term value out of your pieces. Personally, I can not afford to NOT shop with Gabi!

Gabi helped me out of my fashion rut by overhauling my wardrobe. I couldn’t be happier with my newly organized closet. She also helped me pack for a recent vacation. She reviewed my existing clothing and we bought some additional special pieces. Then she took pictures of my outfits for every day of my trip. Not deciding what to wear on a vacation was extremely helpful and time-saving for me.

Gabi is a very efficient shopper. The time you save working with her is by itself worth it. But you won’t just be saving time you’ll be saving frustration and $$$ by not buying the wrong things. Highly recommend

Super pleased with Gabi’s services!
She’s easy to connect with, she reads you fast and makes you feel comfortable. My favourite session was the last one when she came to my place to help me match my new stuff versus old stuff. Wonderful experience! Now I wear ALL I own.
Thank you very much!

I had the pleasure of receiving a gift for a consult with Wardrobe Detectives. All I can say is the process was simply AMAZING! Gabi was professional, knowledgeable and it was truly a fun and enlightening experience. Gabi completely transformed my closet and wardrobe and provided many more options of stylish outfits that I had never thought of. We also had the opportunity to shop together so that she could help me replace a few items and add items that were missing. I will definitely be continuing to update my wardrobe with Gabi every year and would not hesitate to recommend her.

As my close friends know, fashion is not my thing and shopping for clothes always seem to migrate to the bottom of my to-do list. I recently reached out to Wardrobe Detectives to revamp my work clothing, which was looking rather dismal. Gabi did an amazing job, auditing my wardrobe, shopping for missing pieces and styling everything together, complete with photos. It’s been a few weeks and now and I’m loving my new work wardrobe. Everything works together, I feel more confident, look great and best of all getting dressed and out the door in the morning is a much faster process! Gabi was great to work with. She listened and created a wardrobe that works for me. She is knowledgeable, resourceful, creative, and super-efficient, staying well within my budget. I look forward to working with Gabi again.

Love Gabi’s keen eye for detail and thoroughly enjoyed working with her. She has been amazing at bringing full outfits together. Helped me to up my game for a photoshoot, events and business outfits. Also did an excellent job bringing the right outfits for my skin colour!!

I met Gabi for the first time in May 2017. Right away she put me at ease and we set up an appointment to shop for some classic pieces. My experience with Gabi was great. I had a good time shopping and getting some lovely timeless pieces to add to my closet. She also helped me style them and put them together with what I had. I would highly recommend her. She has a keen eye for what looks good and suits her client. Thanks, Gabi and hope to see you soon!

I HIGHLY recommend Gabi’s services – she provides the best advice for my body type and personal taste! I have had so many compliments on my new wardrobe. I’m actually saving money with her help since she knows exactly where to go for discounts and I don’t buy clothes that I will never wear anymore. Plus, I’m saving time since she’s so efficient during our shopping trips. I can’t imagine my shopping life without her! Best. Stylist. Ever.

Gabi is an amazing stylist! I am newly retired and wanted a wardrobe incorporating the sophistication and elegance displayed by European women with my personality. I am looking forward to travelling during my retirement, so this wardrobe also needed to contain clothing that could travel well.
Gabi assessed my initial wardrobe with me, we shopped, and she then styled the new clothes with the existing ones. She taught me how to intermix clothing to produce a large number of outfits with a small number of pieces, as well as how each could be casual or dressed up, according to the accessories worn with them. This will allow me to travel with fewer clothes for many more ensembles. I learned about brands of clothing where I would achieve the best look for the best price and how important fit is to the end result. Gabi listens to what your lifestyle includes, your preferences, dislikes, personality, and takes these into account as she works her magic. There is never any pressure and the whole experience is fun, wonderful and I learned a ton! We have completed my spring/summer wardrobe and I can’t wait to see what Gabi will select for fall/winter! I recommend her wholeheartedly.
Lenni Suave – Retired IT specialist
I contacted Gabi for building a workplace wardrobe for myself and I can say that it is the best decision that I made.
She is a thorough professional, knowledgeable and very friendly. The whole process of analyzing items in my closet to shopping the new ones with Gabi was very informative and fun-filled.
In my closet audit session with her, she helped me identify and eliminate the items that were just sitting in my closet and guided me on what would work best for me.
For shopping sessions, she always kept my comfort zone in mind. She has a keen eye for finding nice fitting items. I now own more nicely fitting dress pants for work than I have ever owned before.
And the best part was – we were shopping at affordable stores in the city, without breaking the bank! 🙂
Thank you for your wonderful services Gabi, really looking forward to our next session 🙂

Excellent experience! Gabi was very thorough and helped me understand the difference between casual and work-appropriate! She gave me homework and made the process to get a workable wardrobe very doable. I highly recommend!
Vicki Knott – CEO and Co-Founder at Crux OCM
There are so many positive things to say about Gabi and her approach. She has helped me get the best out of my wardrobe while helping me to cut some pieces that just weren’t doing the trick. She’s also a wizard at finding the best possible prices for the new items we purchase. I can always count on her, to be honest with me, so I leave every appointment with complete confidence in what we’ve purchased or in the outfits she helped me put together. Do yourself (and your wardrobe) a favour and work with Gabi!
