"EcoVibe is my favorite boutique in Portland. When I first stumbled upon EcoVibe, I immediately loved the space and the styles on display. And, one look at the owner Leonard Allen, I knew I was in good hands. It's not common to see a man in Portland so put together, all the way down to the shoes, attaché and handkerchief.
Len helped me put things together, he encouraged me to try on things I might not have otherwise. The shopping experience was fun and fruitful. I valued Len's eye for style and his warm and fun personality so much that I hired him as my personal stylist.
The first order of business was a closet overhaul. Len identified the colors and styles flatter me most. I was able to make room in my closet for new, flattering pieces I feel good in and let go of dozens of items in my wardrobe that simply weren't right for me. It was nice to shift my perception from "I look terrible in this" to "this item is not right for me." I am not the problem in this new scenario, rather, the shape, cut, color, size, or style of the piece is. This perception takes away the shame I used to feel thinking I had to transform my body in order to look attractive. Now, with what I have learned from Len, all I need to do is dress in what best suits me and I do look attractive. The reason this concept never struck me before was because I had never had a professional stylist with a trained and objective eye to help me determine what styles and colors are ideal for me.
What a pleasure it is now to go into my closet and know I have many items and whole looks that are just right for me."

“For years, I’ve contemplated updating my wardrobe. As a business owner with little time to spare, I was never able to dedicate the time necessary for the task. After working with Len on a complete wardrobe overhaul, all I can say is that I wish I had done it much sooner.
Len starts out by reviewing your current closet and shows you how to get the most out of your existing items. After he understands your style, tastes and goals, he helps you develop a budget. With a budget and your objectives outlined, he goes to work. With his extensive connections, experience in fashion and strong work ethic we were able to completely overhaul my wardrobe over the course of 4-6 weeks.
Now, at every meeting, day in the office or night on the town, I feel confident and comfortable wearing clothes that I’ve always wanted but never had the time or skills to put together.”
