A compassionately lead six week virtual program that supports you to pare down and love up your wardrobe in a way that feels abundant, fulfilling, and freeing.
Mainstream media platforms like Vogue, nonprofit idea spreading powerhouses like TED, and publishers like Random House are rapidly spreading the idea: “less is more.” And you love it!
Whether you’re a business owner, executive, working mom, stay at home mom, retiredandlovingit, reinventing yourself professionally or personally, actively downsizing, or simply long to enjoy getting dressed in the morning . . . a few things are certain:
The true purpose of your closet is to serve you and your closet is where your day starts. Having less “stuff” makes it easier to get dressed. When getting dressed is a breeze, your ability to be fully present with people and give energy to meaningful pursuits escalates because you start the day on a positive note or at the very least, if you’re going through a rough time, a neutral one.
If you have even a few pieces in your closet that you don’t love, don’t like or that make you cringe, your closet is not serving you. The “stuff” taking up space (whether there’s active clutter in there or not) becomes a burden one that you carry forward into your day.
Essentialize is about:
Essentialize is NOT about:
|When You Essentialize, You Feel|
|Like YOU are 100% reflected in what you wear.|
|Open to new opportunities|
|Confident in your voice and abilities|
Your Essentialized Wardrobe represents who you are on the inside, without you having to say a word. It brings to life your values, quirks, and unique qualities in a way that words alone can’t.
When you create an Essentialized Wardrobe, your closet becomes a resource that supports you in growing a business, establishing yourself as a leader, redesigning your life, and being heard by the people you need to hear you. You see yourself differently because the authentic YOU begins to emerge. You become empowered to be true to yourself, true to others, and pursue more of what you really want in life.
See if any of this rings true for you:
You’ve achieved success in your life, but your closet doesn’t reflect it. You’re bored with your clothes and getting dressed in the morning is a mundane, uninspired, sometimes stressful experience. You want to stand out visually, and you GET that your clothes can be a resource to do that, but you don’t know where to start. Going into your closet drains you, and you want that feeling to stop.
You used to love to shop for clothes, but not anymore. You’ve lost touch with what what to wear, because what “used” to look great on you doesn’t anymore. Whether:
One thing is crystal clear to you: you’re over it. You’re tired of settling for a closet that’s not YOU and you desire to create something different.
You’ve changed jobs or started a business, and you recognize that you need to “dress the part.” BUT you don’t want to compromise who you are in the process and you don’t want to throw away every piece of clothing you own and start over you also don’t want to have to break the bank to have a wardrobe you love.
You are determined to downsize, and want to start with your closet. And you don’t want to do it alone. You want to share (even risk being vulnerable) and be supported by a caring group of women with similar intentions during the introspection that comes with effecting real, meaningful, lasting change.
So happy to “meet” you! I’m Kathleen Audet.
I’m an Image Consultant, but what I really do is support women to match what they wear on the outside with who they are on the inside. Over 20+ years of doing this work, I’ve seen what it takes to truly succeed in creating a signature style in an Essentialized Wardrobe.
You must be willing to:
My clients see themselves in a whole new light after working with me AND look amazing in their clothes! With my heartfelt, strategic, intuitive guidance, YOU will transform your wardrobe into a resource that communicates exactly who you are without you saying a word and contains no more than what you need, want and love.
I bring to the table over 20 years of meticulous study and hands on experience working with clients throughout the United States I’ve helped business leaders, stay at home moms, work at home moms, creatives, professionals, and leaders across vocations create, nurture and evolve their personal style and the results are astounding!
Kathleen is what makes this course great! Her attitude and acceptance of each individual helped me to realize that I am valuable and deserve to be dressed beautifully. Figuring out what colors look great on me and learning what my four beauty words are were highlights that will last far beyond the course, and Kathleen’s feedback inside the forum was invaluable.
Kathleen has a way of making good into great. I’m a professional and I dressed well but never really felt like my clothing was a good reflection of my personality. I didn’t understand how to use my clothing to convey confidence and authority. My style was more casual and lacked accessories. Working with Kathleen took my image to the next level. Using my words, the fashion fit formula, my colors and style makes buying the right clothing and accessories easy. My closet is organized and full of fabulous outfits for every occasion. As a professional speaker I feel more confident when I step on the stage. My clothes help me command the authority I need to deliver my message. I love being the best dressed person in the room and receiving all the compliments. I owe it all to Kathleen.

Essentialize will support you to downsize, AND make changes to your wardrobe you’ve been wanting to make. You will learn where to start, what to prioritize, criteria for what to keep and what to let go of, where to shop, and some new things about who you are.
When you create Your Essentialized Wardrobe, you’ll feel:
More confident, because you will eliminate the mismatch between who you are and what you’re wearing. Even the most “successful” people out there have crises of confidence. And when they do, they use every resource they have at their disposal. Your Essentialized Wardrobe will become a vibrant, foundational resource for YOU.
More empowered, because you are free to express yourself through your clothing AND dress for each situation you’re in. You’ll know exactly what to wear to work, to conferences, to meetings. You’ll feel like you’re hitting all the right notes with your clothing choices. You’ll be clear on what you love to wear, why you love it, and you’ll bask in the knowing that what you wear is appropriate for each situation you’re in.
More aware of who you are, and what you need people to hear. Whether you are speaking at an event, giving a presentation at work, or picking up children from school, you’ll feel the difference that dressing with awareness makes. It feels like you have a resonant voice. And you use it!
More ease when getting dressed in the morning! With a wardrobe matched to your inner personality and lifestyle, you bask in the reality that you enjoy getting dressed. Not only do you love each piece of clothing you own, but your closet is organized, making it easy to grab what you need fast!
Empowered to step up into service in more areas of your life. It becomes easier to move through challenges because the joy and love you feel about who you are touches those you come into contact with – which means your influence naturally expands to where it is most useful. It all starts with an inner and outer experience that empowers you to be more of YOU more of the time.
Kathleen has the artist viewpoint and the experience I lack. She looked at new items and made combinations and re‐combinations. She makes me feel that my clothes are great, even the ones I might have regretted buying. She helps me look at color and texture. It is a learning experience with exciting outcomes and no anxiety. Thank you Kathleen for your time and expertise.

There are specific, vital steps you must take, and certain mindset shifts you must make when downsizing and creating a signature style and most people skip these because they either didn’t know about them or didn’t realize their importance.
There are lots of stylists out there who will dress you for an event, or who will take a cursory look at your complexion and recommend colors for you. You can hire a personal shopper to help you shop. And these things often work, at first. But without the crucial missing pieces, the results are not sustainable.
When you Essentialize your wardrobe under my guidance, you excavate, examine and deeply consider . . .
. . . so that you translate your true essence into your clothing choices to ensure that you are, fresh, on point, and happy with your wardrobe and that your transformation lasts beyond the first couple of weeks!
“There is a lot of “buzz” out there around the word transformation these days. Transformation is not just about the outside but the inside as well. To work on the outside is the shell, but working on the inside is about the heart; transformation includes both. Just when I think I have something down, I get it, I learn something new. That is what it is like to work with Kathleen. To be better, inside and out, than when you started.”
-Caryn Young, Admin to President of NonProfit
I will teach you the critical things you need to know to Essentialize yourcloset without feeling the least bit deprived or constrained, including:
It is absolutely critical you learn and implement every single aspect of Essentializing. If you don’t, you’ll probably never see the payoff you want to see, in terms of awareness, empowerment, downsizing, and simply feeling great when you get dressed in the morning.
You have the beginnings of Your Essentialized Wardrobe right now! If you’re like 99.9% of my clients, you have at least a few (if not more) pieces you like (maybe even love). It’s time to turn up the volume, pare down the excess, and create an impeccable style that will stand you out, in all the right ways.
You bring your amazing, quirky, creative, talented, flawed (because we’re all flawed and that won’t stop you from creating your Essentialized Wardrobe) self and I will provide the step by step judgementfree support, guidance, and strategy to help you put it all together!
Are you ready to let your brilliance shine in a way you never have before, to free yourself to do more with less, to be THE leader in your life?[calltoaction text=”I’M READY TO ESSENTIALIZE MY CLOSET” type=”alt” link=”https://yourauthenticimage.leadpages.co/essentialize-launch-notification/”]
The messages you send with your clothing are based in part on your values. Values are the motivating force behind your behaviors, choices and decisions. IF you choose clothing that is inconsistent with your values – you risk building a wardrobe that doesn’t reflect who you are which means the pieces you have are not working for you.
Research has shown that our clothing values are consistent with our general values BUT are often a neglected part of personal style and yet so essential when creating an Essentialized closet. This foundational module will help you bring the two together.
During this module you will:
“Working with Kathleen has been an investment that has paid off in innumerable ways. Ultimately, it’s been a much needed investment in myself. Kathleen’s gentle, wise and uncompromising belief that every woman is beautiful as she is combined with her skill and expertise has been transformational for me. I feel more empowered, confident and beautiful than ever and Kathleen’s been a huge part of helping me get to this place.”
Working with design elements in clothing when you’re not a designer can seem, at first blush, intimidating. It’s really not. In this module, you’ll learn about the design element that is MOST important to prioritize when creating Your Signature Style LINE. Lines create powerful optical illusions about the size and shape of the body – length and width. Lines create shape, and there is nothing better than feeling fabulous in the line and shape of a great pair of jeans or a style you didn’t know could look so good on you — but it does — because you KNOW the lines that are perfect for your body type.
During this module you will:
“As a fan of What Not To Wear, I loved the idea of having an expert “style me” as they saw fit. Who wouldn’t? What I didn’t expect was for Kathleen to help me discover my own personal style and help me understand key things about clothing and shapes that have helped empower and transform my understanding of presence.”
This is the piece that will differentiate your signature style from everyone else out there. Because Your Signature Style is about so much more than clothes.
It’s about knowing who you are, and bringing that awareness into your wardrobe in a way that is thoughtful, intuitive, and strategic. Using your four words will not only remove all guesswork from and simplify your shopping, it will render you empowered and unstoppable.
Your words (and from now on your clothing) reflect the essence of YOU.
During this module you will:
“I love Kathleen. She was very professional and informative about my style. She didn’t make me feel like I had to do a complete 180 on my style, but just gave me great tips on how to clean it up and work with my figure and colors. I had so many clothes that I would buy, never wear or wear once, and they just took up space. The amount of money that I would of saved if I knew what I know now would of helped me out greatly. I enjoy shopping now because I know how to shop.”
You’ve done the foundational work with your values, messaging, lines, and words. Now it’s time for you to activate color in your wardrobe like you’ve never “seen” it before. Don’t just play it safe with black, brown and navy – find out what to do with color — how to use it and why it essential to have it in your wardrobe.
During this module you will:
I was stunned what a difference the right color made. Kathleen is spot on. Can’t wait to find some others that will replace my greys and blacks.
Believe it or not, there’s a science behind how to organize your closet in a way that supports you to get dressed with ease, each and every day. The key lies in making sure that you are the artist in your closet. You are the one designing YOU, and even if you don’t consider yourself a Van Gogh (or even close), when you create a method and use my easy-to-follow tools, your signature style is effortless to create and maintain, day after day. It’s time to essentialize, streamline and feel fantastic EVERY morning.
During this module you will:
You have been paring down all along, but now it’s time to get serious about what you really love and what you don’t. Here you will discover ALL the techniques and methods for keeping clothes and accessories you need to make your closet a perfect place to start your day with confidence.
During this module you will:
You’ve created a mindset and skill set you will use for the rest of your life! Now it’s time to use it to create outfits that will support you no matter what you’re doing or where you’re going in life. During this module, you will be treated to a LIVE Q&A webinar with Kathleen!
During this module and the dynamic LIVE webinar, you will:
“Kathleen is amazing at what she does to help you find your own authentic style and the best in your personality and bring your positive and true qualities out each and every day. After working with her I feel not only more organized but completely renewed and refreshed. I highly recommend Kathleen to anyone who wants to discover their true brand and personality and reflect that in your wardrobe. Thank you Kathleen, you are amazing!”

“I am a professor, so I am used to standing comfortably in of front large numbers of people. I haven’t given my clothing much thought over the years – professional and utilitarian, but admittedly, boring! I knew what I was wearing didn’t reflect who I was, what I believed, and how I wanted to express myself. I have a Ph.D., but not in fashion and design. I needed help!
It has been a pleasure working with Kathleen Audet! She has the patience, knowledge, knowhow, and people skills to help anyone find their right fit with clothing and color. I had some sense of the colors that looked good on me, but Kathleen helped me finetune it. It was so helpful to narrow down to 5 words that best describe who I am and what I am passionate about. That gave me much needed focus. I was no longer wandering through department stores aimlessly. I had a true sense of what I was looking for, what looked good on me, and why.
And, it’s that “why” that’s so important and separates Kathleen from others. She didn’t beat me over the head – or tell me what to do. She gently moved me along, through my closet, asking me what looked good, what didn’t, and encouraged an understanding of the reasons behind it. Working with Kathleen has made all the difference for me!”

Committing to Essentialize is just that – a commitment. To yourself. To your work. to being visible and being heard. To the goals you passionately wish to pursue. To living within a smaller personal “footprint.”
Essentialize is NOT a good fit for you if you:
“I loved our time together! My closet has stayed organized. I feel like I can breathe now when I go in there, and I can see everything I own. It’s wonderful. The pile we made on the floor has found a new home at the resale shop. It feels good to have a list of priority purchases to make. I’ve found myself making more intentional decisions about how casually/formally I am dressing. It immediately affects my attitude – I’m more alert and energetic about getting work done. Everyone has been commenting on how flattering my outfits look. My husband hasn’t stopped talking about it. Preconsultation, I would not have dressed that nicely.”

This virtual class changed my mainly-black wardrobe to a variety of vibrant colors that makes me feel fabulous. Just a few additions in my closet and combining already-owned items resulted in many more outfits. The online support was invaluable. Kathleen has a gentle and loving way of giving beneficial feedback. By taking pictures wearing what I already owned, I was able to see what colors and styles looked good and what pieces should be retired. This class is filled with worthwhile information about fashion.
