A pleasant experience for a husband – For a Christmas gift, I gave my wife, who has for years felt intimidated by fashion, a two-hour session with Maria. She was easy to talk to, and she suggested composing an e-card announcing the gift. She did, it was lovely, and my wife was delighted. They are meeting in a few days.
Dumpy Doc Transformed to Almost Diva by Maria – It all started when I needed a "mother of the groom" outfit for a ranch wedding in Oct. Determined to ditch my reputation as having no sense of style I thought of Maria and how spectacular she always looks. My cry for HELP landed me not only a new reputation as at least capable of class but an education about what looks good on my body, how to shop, how NOT to buy spectacular ,fancy but impractical items . Now a year later I reach into my well organized closet and can come up with what seems like an infinite array of mix and match coordinates that makes it fun to get dressed.
The best part- she did the shopping, picked bargains and quality and brought it to my home after hours. The hardest part was making decisions as almost everything fit perfectly and looked just too good to send back.
You will love her. She is not only talented but fun and most importantly will tell you the truth if it makes you look fat.
Dr. Winstrom, I was very touched to see your testimony and that you took time to tell me and other viewers how you felt. I think that you are the "good old fashion doc" and such a remarkable and fun person to know and to work with. Once again thank you. If you enjoy the sales , please go to the face book page and search transformationsbymaria and see all the things for sale, jewelry that can be designed, discussions, custom leather belts. At the top of the page beside the name click "like" and you will continue to follow me. Thanks again
Superior Stylist and Clothing Coordinator – I am the owner of B'Dazzled Resale Boutique and upscale ladies resale store in River Oaks. I have been working closely with Maria for many, many years. She is a vital part of my business. And one of the highlights of the B'Dazzled shopping experience. She has helped to teach my staff and myself how to best show our clothing for each season. She helps my clients in the store to co-ordinate outfits that will both fit them and make them feel wonderful. She helps them learn about proper accessorizing and has a creative eye that she uses to help customers envision and item in a new way. Maria has been and will continue to be an intrigal part of the fashions and family that can be found in my store. I highly reccomend Maria to anyone who needs help rejuvinating their wardrobe, shopping for clothes, or even prepping their store. She is not only knowledgeable, but curtious, fair and honest!
Dear Debbie and Lena, You have been a vital part of my life. I thank you so much for allowing me to fit my clients in your store. I'm also allowed to take the wonderful inventory out to show clients. The resale shop and the people there care. Thanks again

Dear Norm and Roz. Y'all have been so wonderful to work with. It is very hard finding honest, caring and go out of their way, kind of people. Working with you in the jewelry business allows my clients to get the best and the freshest look. Your energy and positive out look on the market is awesome. Thanks again.
Awesome Fashion Consultant & Person in General – Maria is AWESOME!! She does what she says she'll do and then some.
She's personable and has the heart of a teacher. Willing to hold your hand and teach you exactly what and how to do it. A person like this is rare, as she could just sell her self and services to you, but instead she teaches you. She's a breath of fresh air.
Wow, such kind words, thank you. I was just adding the transformationsbymaria face book page , when I saw this. It is clients like you that turn into friends. I thank you for finding me. I found some cool shirts and I will be in touch soon.
Extremely knowledgeable and personable – My experience with Maria has been wonderful! My husband gave me an initial consultation with Maria as a graduation gift. I had always talked about liking shows like "What Not to Wear". Maria was so much better than just watching the show. First, she is very knowledgeable about fashion. Next, she works with you as a person and is very positive! She starts where you are regardless of size or shape. She builds on your strengths and determines how to "transform" your wardrobe to accentuate your strengths. Since my initial consultation, Maria has done a closet make-over and has met me to do some jewelry shopping to accessorize my wardrobe. I love her style and I can tell she really loves what she does. I feel better about myself every time I am with her!!!
Dear Carmen, I just saw your review and wanted to say thank you. I know how busy you are and to stop to comment is very special. I want to thank your husband as well. I was very touched when he called me and was so excited, waiting for the day he was to present "the gift package" to you. The design of the gift certificate had to be special. I enjoy so much working with you. Thank you. Catch my store on Face book....transformationsbymaria and we will talk soon.
A helpful, honest and perfect person! – Maria is one of the kindest people that you will ever meet. She regularly meets clients at a River Oaks resale boutique called B'Dazzled. Many of her clients are brides, but all clients get the princess treatment. Maria takes time to learn about her clients and not only what they need from her, but she also learns about their life. This personal touch helps her to know exactly what each client needs and give everyone a personal experience.
I have seen Maria's clients enjoy their experience and love their clothes!!
Maria has helped me to find clothes that fit my body. She knows what she is doing and can suggest things that will make you feel beautiful.
One of the things that I find even more exciting about Maria is her style sense and her ability to "re-think" everything. She can take a normal blazer, roll up the sleeves, wear a long necklace as a belt and accessorize in the most incredible way!
If you need help re-organizing your closet, altering a wardrobe, fitting a wedding dress, or really anything else, I would recommend Maria in a heartbeat!
Honey, Lena, thank you for such kind words. I'm glad I'm still going for perfection , cause I have not earned my wings yet. I love what I do. In my job I get to play "barbie dolls" everyday and watch the results. I have a peace and calming effect when I hear or see the reviews like yours and many others. The positive response, and knowing the client-friend is truly happy completes me..as a person. Thank you for all that you do and who you are.
Top-Quality Services from Someone Who Gives Back to Communit – I have known Maria for more than 20 years and used her services more times than I can count. Words don't do her justice. In addition to being an absolute expert at wardrobe consultation, personal shopping, alterations, and style in general , she is also one of the most generous people I know. Over the last 15 years she has given back to the community countless times by donating her consulting services as an auction item to the many nonprofit organizations I have worked for. I am not the only one she has done this for. Maria truly believes in paying it forward. Use her services with confidence that you will get excellent products and service at a very fair price, and feel good knowing that giving her your patronage helps her to be generous to others!
Honey, you are to kind. If anyone gives back to the community YOU do. The sun shine kids ,cancer society, etc many many, more. I was so pleased when you came into my life and you have stuck with me for most of my years in business, your whole family. Are you not tired of me yet, lol. Thank you for your kind words and may we grow old together.
Absolutely WONDERFUL!! – I have known Maria for five years and she is the only person I trust with my alterations. She listens to your needs, provides excellent advice regarding the style and fit of your wardrobe, and teaches you how to dress to look fabulous for any occasion. Her expertise and attention to detail are top notch, she is quick, professional and a perfectionist... and, as an added bonus, she is a wonderful person to befriend.
Yes, I love people and I am a perfectionist, and meeting people like you makes my job easier. One can see why the longer we spend together the price drops...why?...How can you charge a friend? Keep passing the word and all will balance. Thanks again , for being you.
Best Alterations AND Friendship EVER – Maria is a miracle worker with style! Our friendship started almost over 4 years ago, I had purchased a wedding dress off the rack to save money (but it was several sizes too big). She had to take the whole thing apart and piece it all back together - no one else could have done it with the precision and care that Maria did. Not only has she over the years done several extremely difficult alterations on bridesmaids dresses and formal gowns, she has also become a dear friend. Maria has the biggest heart and will go above and beyond to make sure that you feel and look beautiful - and her turnaround time is fantastic. I HIGHLY recommend her. Maria is the best of the best!
Dear Rosemarie, I just came across your review and wanted to say thank you. The day that we met , we had a connection and we continue to do that. Thank you for finding me and being in my life.
