Always busy with work and concerned that I look ‘professional,’ both in formal and casual business environments, over the years I developed a wardrobe with conservative-styled pieces, most in the same color family. I viewed my clothing as a kind of uniform. As a result, shopping for work clothes and wearing work clothes were never a source of pleasure. One session with Candy changed all of that. My session gave me a new approach to my existing wardrobe, without spending a fortune for a new one. Candy helped me find colors that could beautifully accent the clothing I had to create a more impressive and dynamic appearance. She gave me ideas for (eye catching?) colors that I would never have selected on my own that I could wear comfortably in professional venues. And, it was done within a fun, confidential setting that enabled me to face my long-held personal clothing taboos and receive advice in a non-judgmental, helpful way. There is no question that having a boost in my external image also boosted my confidence and spirit. I would highly recommend Candy and the House of Colour for any professional who wants to enhance his/her image and project a more positive demeanor.

Dear Candy and Kate,

The experience you both provided me today was world class. I will never forget it. I am so thankful! This truly will change my life and how I feel about myself. As a mom with a fifteen month old, a husband, a new house and many people to care for in my business, this experience with you is worth the investment. You both made me feel great and confident. I also have clarity on how to go about choosing clothing and shopping. This is invaluable.Thank you again. What a pleasure!

Elina - Mahopac NY

I am a long-time litigation partner at a major firm, and before going to House if Colour I thought I had a pretty good idea of what colors and styles were flattering to me. What I found, however, was that Candy Gould's detailed color assessment helped me see the difference between colors that are only okay for me and those that are most flattering. Her style analysis further helped me understand the type of clothes that look best on me. Taken together, those insights both encouraged me to try some new colors and helped me avoid some expensive mistakes. I now focus my wardrobe and jewelry purchases on those items that really suit me and that I am happy to wear.

I cannot thank Kate and Candy enough for their invaluable guidance in the color and style classes that I have taken at House of Colour. The color class opened my eyes as to what colors look best on my skin tone. While I already had some of these colors in my closet, one of the most exciting parts of the class was discovering the colors that looked best on me that I didn't own and that tended to shy away from while shopping. It was also very illuminating to discover the colors that do NOT look best on me - this certainly explained why I never felt great in certain items of clothing that I otherwise liked a lot. The style class helped me to understand what kind of clothes looked best on my body type and also express my personality. This class has proven especially helpful in shopping for clothes for work. Before taking the class, I struggled with choosing work clothes that were appropriate for the office yet also allowed me to feel like myself. Now I'm very happy with what I wear to work and the numerous compliments I receive on my work outfits are a testament to this.

Overall, my classes at the House of Colour have improved my confidence at work in addition to my personal life. I wholeheartedly recommend them to all of my family and friends.

Jasmine - NYC

My wife kept prodding me to go to the House of Colour after she had a session.  Although I was skeptical (and perhaps a little embarrassed), I could see how wonderful she looked after getting advice on what wardrobe colors looked best on her.  So I went, partly as a dutiful husband and partly secretly intrigued by the difference it made with my wife.  It turned out to be fun, interesting and utterly unembarassing. Candy Gould was terrific in helping me determine what clothes' colors looked best on me.  She methodically and professionally advised me, actually illustrating the effects with multiple comparisons so I could see for myself.  My skepticism melted away when I saw how much better I looked in selected colors--opening up colors I might not have thought of before, demonstrating that some colors I  had chosen in the past really didn't help me, and showing me how to coordinate those colors for the best effect.  All in all it was a wonderful experience that I continually benefit from. It has been a real surprise to me that people actually notice and favorably comment! Thank you Candy


Lance - Larchmont, NY.

As a lawyer with over 30 years experience in private practice, I know from first hand experience how important it is to dress appropriately in the work place. First class legal expertise is only part of the story. How one comes across, and that includes how one is dressed, also matters a great deal.

Candy fully understands this. She has the experience and eye to help her clients strike the balance that is right for them and their work environment. And she achieves this in a truly professional but also very enjoyable way.

Rachel - NYC

The environment was perfect for doing the analysis! Candy's candidness, sincerity and knowledge were added bonuses. I feel like I have a solid foundation on which to work with and can move forward in cleaning out my closet, purchasing new clothing, with much more awareness. Because I'm in a transition in my life where I need to bring my style, colors, persona together, Candy helped me to feel more stabilized and directed to my next steps. Thank you thank you thank you!



Judith - NYC

This was such a great experience. Candy is an unquestionable expert at what she does. She's also warm, funny, and interesting. Her color analysis is a worthwhile investment. I can't wait to do the style analysis too!
