Meet the women behind the clothes.Elizabeth Bean Smith, 34, founder & stylist
After studying at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, Smith returned to Ohio to work for the Express home office. In 2006, she founded Wardrobe Therapy to offer fashion consulting, shopping and more for Columbus women.
Fashion icon: Rachel Zoe. I can remember when I just started learning and hearing about Rachel in my fashion classes in early 2000, and then from 2005 to 2007, she was everywhere. She truly is an inspiration to me daily and has stayed true to her style.
Favorite designer: Stella McCartney
Closet item you can't live without: Oversized tunics and my booties.
First piece of clothing you remember splurging on: It was a Ron Leal camel trench from Leál. I still love and cherish a fashion piece that I purchased the year the man retired. He ranks with Chanel.
Item you've had in your closet the longest: A brown Michael Kors Grecian sandal. Love.
All-time most memorable style moment: First, my wedding day. Second, entering my 30s and being comfortable to do what's right, in my own skin.
Favorite places to shop: Local boutiques, Nordstrom and The Wardrobe in Cincinnati-another great boutique owned by a great friend!
Item you lust: Oversized Chanel large tote bag.
Best style advice: "A woman is closest to being naked when she's well dressed." -Coco Chanel
You have $100 and 10 minutes to spend it. Where do you go? Truth: Dinner with my family. Answer you're looking for: Ladybird. Great things, great prices.
What three women are doing style best right now? Rachel Zoe, Diane von Furstenberg and Beyonce.
If you could dress one woman, who would it be? My Grandma Mann. She's no longer living, but was a true fashionista in her own right. She appreciated it all.
Who does affordable fashion best? Ann Taylor Loft for a box shop-great basics, easy prices. Nordstrom for variety of pieces that are "affordable." It's all relative, right?
Signature lipstick? Chanel lip gloss.
What's the biggest mistake people make in their wardrobe? Not building a foundation and being true to what works for their shape and lifestyle, not their friends'.Christy Walsh, 27, stylist
Walsh studied fashion merchandising at Kent State and earned a master's degree in marketing from Franklin University. She was a visual merchandiser at Abercrombie & Fitch before joining Smith as a Wardrobe Therapy stylist in 2012.
Fashion icon: Jackie Kennedy Onassis. I love retro fashion, especially the 1960s. I think she is so classic and gorgeous.
Favorite designer: It's a toss-up, because it changes all the time. I like Proenza Schouler and The Row-Mary Kate and Ashley's line.
Best shoes you've ever owned: My Ferragamo loafers. They're a nude color with a little silver buckle on the top of the foot. They have that worn-in look.
Item you've had in your closet the longest: The item I can't remember not having is my grandma's vintage arm cuff. It's my most treasured piece.
Item you've worn out: Loeffler Randall ankle boots. But I just can't seem to get rid of them-they're so cool.
All-time most memorable style moment: We have this home video when I was 3. My dad, brother and I are playing kickball. I kick the ball, and I have a purse dangling from one arm and a stack of bangles on the other, running with my arms up. And I'm running straight to third base.
Favorite places to shop: I gravitate to Nordstrom and Zara. Zara's a bit edgy.
Best style advice: I learned this as a teenager, it's a quote from Coco Chanel. "Before leaving the house, a woman should remove one accessory." In this age of "stack 'em up," it brings you back to simplicity.
You have $100 and 10 minutes to spend it. Where do you go? I feel like Rowe has some good finds these days that are $100 and under.
What three women are doing style best right now? Kate Bosworth-she's great. Alexa Chung. And a toss-up between Olivia Palermo and Kerry Washington on the red carpet.
If you could dress one woman, who would it be? Hillary Clinton needs some help. Women should be empowered not only by their mind but how they dress in the morning. That gives you confidence.
What's the biggest mistake people make in their wardrobe? What we see is women not dressing for their body type. If it's not made for your shape, it's not going to translate.
What event are people most stressed out about dressing for? We see different things every season. Columbus has become such a fashion mecca, so there are so many major events where women will freak out. Women stress about Hat Day, because it's a fashion event. Even just an event with their spouse's colleagues, it's "What do I wear?"
