Lauren Keyes, a Seattle, Washington native and now a resident of Orange County, California has dedicated her career as a wardrobe consultant/personal shopper helping both women and men from all walks of life to feel and look their very best through honing in on their personal style while adding her unique twist. STYLE is her middle name, it has always come natural to her and over the past 6 years she has revamped hundreds of closets.
Being taken home from the hospital in Donna Karen her destiny was decided then that one day she would work in the fashion industry. Her passion for fashion really grew when she was selected to be apart of the Nordstrom BP. Fashion Board her senior year of high school. It was no surprise that she then pursued a BA degree in Retail Sales and Marketing at the University of Washington. She then took a trip to Paris for a month where she wrote her thesis “A Deeper Look Into Fashion”. After graduation she was hired at Nordstrom (Flagship store) where she started out in the jewelry department. It wasn’t to long after that Lauren moved into the Narrative and then the Individualist/Dress department continuing to broaden her fashion knowledge. She branched off from Nordstrom four years later but not before working at the South Coast Plaza store assisting in Personal Touch and the Via C (progressive designer) department.
The perfect concoction was made when she combined her educational background with 6 years of retail experience, 13 years in pageantry and most recently motherhood. With such a diverse background she is able to relate to business professionals, pageant girls all the way to stay-at-home mothers. Lauren loves what she does because through each individual she is truly able to make a large impact in their lives. Her motto is ” Life is an interview, why not be stylish. You never know who you will meet or where life will take you but you should always look your best doing it!”.
