Purely Personal Reviews

I cannot recommend Purely Personal and Mona Bryan highly enough! Working with her has been an absolute game-changer in my fashion journey. From the moment I met her, it was evident that she possesses an innate talent for understanding her clients’ unique styles and needs.

What sets Mona apart is her impeccable eye for detail and her genuine passion for helping others look and feel their best. She doesn’t just pick out clothes for me; she curates outfits that truly reflect my personality and lifestyle. Every piece she selects feels like it was made just for me.

One of the most remarkable aspects of working with Mona is her ability to decipher what colors complement my complexion perfectly. Thanks to her expertise, I’ve discovered hues I never knew could enhance my features. Now, instead of shopping for the usual black and grey outfits, I am drawn towards the colors she recommended for me. Shopping for clothes has become more enjoyable and I can quickly scan a store or boutique to look for those items that complete my seasonal wardrobes. Plus, I am receiving more compliments than ever before!

Beyond her undeniable talent, Mona is an absolute delight to work with. Her warmth, positivity, and professionalism make every styling session a pleasure. She is like a ray of sunshine! I trust her implicitly, knowing that she always has my best interests at heart.

In short, Mona has transformed not only my wardrobe but also my confidence. She’s not just a stylist; she’s a trusted advisor and a dear friend. If you’re looking to elevate your style and discover a newfound confidence, look no further than Mona. She’s simply the best!


Got an event invite? Cue the excitement… followed by the panic: “What on earth am I wearing?” Before Mona, I’d frustratingly comb through my closet, even peeking into the ‘Give to Charity’ bag (as if by some wardrobe miracle!). Yet, I’d still come up empty-handed. Then came my options: 1) Epic road trip to Saks, always fab but never right. 2) Endless online shopping, AKA the return marathon.

Enter Mona! She worked her magic, edited my closet, and unearthed hidden gems. Suddenly, old faves were reborn, paired with new stunners Mona found for me – all within my budget! Full transparency: “What to wear” still crosses my mind. But thanks to Mona, it’s more like a thrilling style quest than a fashion crisis!”


I love vibrant colors, but I’ve never been able to translate my love of color into my wardrobe. My entire career has been in finance, which resulted in years of a wardrobe built around combinations of black, gray and navy with zero – and I mean zero – clue how to accessorize. I perpetually looked like I was in mourning. I loved the ease but hated the look. Over the last seven years I had put on weight. Mona Bryan stepped in at just the right time. I had already begun losing weight and improving my health when I asked Mona for help. The garments and accessories she chose for me made me feel like a million bucks! Mona’s love of various cultures and their many aesthetic contributions have given her a unique vision. She not only showed me how to coordinate and accessorize various colors, but also understood what styles would best compliment my shape and skin/hair combination. Most importantly, she made the whole experience fun! She was encouraging but honest. End result? I have never gotten more compliments on my wardrobe. Feeling good about the way I look has given me more confidence to continue my journey for a healthier, more energetic me. In short, to pursue a better version of myself.

Washington, D. C

I was truly delighted to learn that Mona Bryan is returning to fashion with her personal consulting and sourcing service. When I was building my practice, I relied on her completely and her Strictly Business store for clothes that were professional, comfortable and stylish. Because of the quality and classic lines, I still have some of her original pieces — decades later! I cannot wait to work with her again. My wardrobe needs her!

Miami, Florida

Over a 30-year career as a woman business owner, I have benefited from Mona’s caring and insightful expertise for wardrobe styling and shopping expertise. She chooses the best designs for me that fit casual, professional or formal occasions. As a former store owner in Miami and as a personal shopper, she knows how to find the best quality, price and styles. Mona loves what she does and it shows by the results she produces whether you are enhancing or starting your wardrobe. I recommend her 100%!
