Hi Doll!

My name is LaToya Polk Robinson, and I'm the owner and creator of ClosetInvite. I created ClosetInvite to ensure women have the resources to know, style, and walk confidently in their bodies no matter their shape or size.

I am a follower of Jesus Christ, a wife, a mother of two, and a women’s personal stylist and advocate. No, I don't impose my religious beliefs on anyone, but I do pray for each and every one of my clients. This is God's business; I'm just His willing vessel.

Back in 2020, I became a Certified Image Consultant from the Fashion Stylist Institute. In 2021, I graduated from Liberty University with a Bachelor's in Business Management with a Specialization in Communication.

 

Prior to becoming certified and graduating, I had already dived headfirst into my business styling my first clients. Since then, I have worked my way up the fashion styling ladder - starting with branding photoshoots, closet revamps, in-person and virtual styling, to personal makeovers.

Oh, and let's not forget about my progress with public speaking! I have spoken at business panels, interviewed for The Charlotte Post, and I even appeared on TV on QC@3.

With all of that being said, I couldn't be more ecstatic that you are here!

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.” Genesis 1:27 KJV

Story Time

I was 12 years old, 5 feet, wearing a size 13 plus.Fast forward two years, age 14 years old, 5 feet 4 inches, wearing a size 3 straight.You may be asking how in the world did you lose so much weight and so quickly.

Well, one summer I went to band camp at Virginia Tech. Yes, I went to band camp. lol. So, if you ever walked a college campus, you know there is a lot of walking. My classes and my dorm were on opposite sides of campus from each other. Also, that year we moved. I went from having my bus stop in front of my door to having to walk miles. So, I lost a lot of weight. The only thing is I didn't realize it, but everyone around me did. When I looked in the mirror, I saw the heavy-set girl that people always teased and the boys never wanted. Time to go back to school, Freshman year in High School, my aunt DeDe said, "let's go back to school shopping." I didn't come from an affluent background so the majority of my clothes came from Kmart and The Flea Market. This time around my aunt DeDe said, "let's go to Macy's." She went around the department store picking up items that I didn't think I could ever wear. "Go into the dressing room and try these on, don't forget to come out and show me what you look like." The only thing was when she asked me what size I told her a 13, she said no way you are a 13 but picked the size up anyway. When I went to try them on and came out to show Aunt DeDe the pants were drowning me. "I knew it!" Back to the dressing room I went with her going down sizes in pants until we got to a size 3. "Girl, you lost a whole person!" My aunt DeDe was a size 22, so from then on, I became her baby doll. She dressed me in clothing that weren't available in her size at the time and I began to love it! I loved it so much I took what Aunt DeDe taught me and as soon as I would get my little weekly pack check from my job, I started to dress myself. I became obsessed with what colors look good on me, what was on trend, going to the mall at least once a week and seeing what was new and on display, even when I couldn't afford to buy anything. Oh, and I had to get SEVENTEEN and any other teen fashion magazine to see what everyone was wearing. I started seeing how my confidence rose and how I was able to express myself through my fashion. Aunt DeDe was a hairstylist; that day, she was my own personal stylist. She helped me see myself in a different light, and I want to, in turn, do the same for you.
