Get To Know Your Stylist: The VT Team Shares Their Goals for 2017

As we reach the end of another year (so long 2016!), it’s important to stop for a moment and celebrate the accomplishments and lessons learned in the last 12 months.

It’s even more important to have a clear vision for the new year ahead–which is why we always recommend our clients create a style file. Here at VT, the team gets personal, sharing their greatest achievements from 2016 and their goals for 2017. Read their highlights below!

Vision for 2017: 

Spending more time in my new home designed by Joe Lupo. It empowers me to be in an environment that represents my style and vision for my life so authentically. It’s one thing to have clarity in your wardrobe, but it’s a whole new level of clarity when you have a home that perfectly aligns with your image and identity.

Biggest celebration of 2016:

My loyal clients and my AMAZING Team at Visual Therapy. Without their hard work and dedication this business would not be such a great success!

A lesson I learned in 2016:

Give priority to things and relationships that empower me. On a daily basis!

Motto for 2017:

Take all things to the next level: mind, body and soul.

Lisa Marie McComb, Lead Stylist | @lmcstyle

Current style type: 

I’ve always been a mixologist of style, and I don’t see that changing.  Fashion is very personal and when something speaks to me… I just know.

Having an appreciation and knowledge of all style types helps me elevate my clients’ personal style.  It can be distracting if you are focused on chasing the latest trend.

I’m all about wearing something that makes you shine but doesn’t take the spotlight. I call it confident chic!

Vision for 2017:

In the coming year I want to continue my journey to balance… follow my heart, allow creativity to flow by trusting my instincts, love fully and openly, and be happy!

Biggest accomplishment/celebration of 2016:

Celebration – the Chicago Cubs!  #flythew
Accomplishment – changing my status to “in a relationship.”  Not really… I mean I did change my status… but I did not change it on Facebook 😉 This is important.  This is the reason balance has come into my life 😍

A lesson I learned in 2016:

Confidence. I’m realizing that with balance in my life there is a certain calm, peace, and a new level of “feeling it.” It’s been there all along, but now I am fully embracing it.

Motto for 2017: 

Anything is possible…when you love more. I Love my job….I love my family, friends…I love life!

Kellye Henton, Lead Stylist  | @lovekellye

Current style type: 

Chic/avant-garde. I’m avant-garde during the day and chic in the evening.

Vision for 2017:

In addition to building my style and wellness in 2017, I really want to focus on elevating my home and making it a zen space.

Biggest celebration of 2016:

One of my goals for 2016 was to get baptized. I’m extremely proud that I was able to set this goal and accomplish it. My family and friends were all present, which made it a very emotional and beautiful experience.

A lesson I learned in 2016:

Don’t be afraid to push yourself. Sometimes being too comfortable can prevent you from growing. Never stand still.

Motto for 2017:

To be more intentional! Everything I do is for a reason. 

Gabriela Rocha, Stylist | @ninetiesbabe

Current style type: 

I’ve always been a style blender but I think I’ve morphed into bohemian-chic over the past year. Yes, I’m still bohemian, but my tastes have become more refined and in tune with my personality.
Stylist Gabriela Rocha

Vision for 2017:

I love Giorgia Tordini’s style and attitude. Everything about her is #goals for me in 2017.

Biggest celebration of 2016:

That one’s easy—joining the VT team and being able to do my dream job surrounded by awesome, talented people!

A lesson I learned in 2016:

I learned so many…but heres a playful, non serious one as it relates to my job at VT—everything goes on sale! Except for…maybe, Hermes!

Motto for 2017: 

You can manifest anything (if you believe in it).
