About this project
100% Funded and Now We Need Help Taking it to the Next Level!
With your PARTICIPATION, "Ultimate Guide to Style" is now 100% funded! However, don’t let that stop you from still becoming a backer and participating! We want to keep raising funds, which will be used for more illustrations, printing copies for book reviewers, publicity, and the unforeseen cost of the laying out of the printed book (oopsy…we forgot to add this into the budget!) Therefore, PLEASE keep spreading the word... and keep pledging!
$1,000,000,000.00 is Our New Current GOAL! LOL!!
We would also like to put your mind at ease! If you’re worried that we are going to spend your pledges foolishly, don’t worry as we have an expert helping us. Our business mentor, Tom Antion, is overseeing us and giving us detailed instructions on what to do. He has helped many authors self-publish, as well as published 27 books of his own. So don’t worry…be happy you pledged!
Once the fundraising period ends, it will take Kickstarter about two weeks to process the pledges. As soon as we receive the funds, the self-publishing process will begin – editing, illustrating, copyrighting, issuing of the ISBN number, getting a bar code, laying out of the printed book. Yes, we are so excited!We want to thank you from the bottom of our shopping bags!! This dream project of ours wouldn’t be happening without all of your love and support
What We Do
Why should you fund this project?
By helping to kickstart Ultimate Guide to Style, you will be part of our goal to help people look better and feel better than they ever thought they could. We have poured our hearts and souls into this book. This is a detailed guide on everything you need to know to look your absolute best!
We all know an insecure aunt hiding behind a black wardrobe, an overweight cousin who refuses to wear anything but sweats, or your mom who still rocks her little mini skirt and a pink scrunchie, thinking she is still in her twenties. This book is for women who could use a complete makeover or just a little “pick me up”. We are not just stylists. We build up women’s self-confidence by helping them find their signature style to match their personality.
Please check out our website at www.PickOutArtists.com for the services we offer along with our popular fashion blog. You will be fully entertained with fashion tips, new trends, client testimonials, radio interviews, and more advice on our fun fashion finds and mishaps.
Why write this book?
Everyone can use improvements. We know many people that have missed an opportunity or more, because they didn’t portray the image that was so important for that job, date, or event. An empowering style is not just for the famous, skinny-minnie’s, bored housewives, ladies who brunch, teen valley girls, or gold diggers. It’s for everyone who wants to put their best foot forward. This goes for every size, shape, monetary status, and color! We want to make our knowledge and expertise available to people everywhere, not just in Los Angeles, California.
What makes the Ultimate Guide to Style unique?
Unlike most stylists, we were not born FASHIONABLE. In addition to our in-depth style tips and suggestions, we also talk about our one of a kind stories of our humorous fashion mishaps. We open people’s eyes on how important it is to shine your own unique style. We approach and coach people on how to be stylish, as we were once walking in those unfashionable shoes, too. The results are life changing and what our clients have experienced is priceless, but don’t just take our word for it. Keep reading to see what our clients say about us!
What our clients say about us!
Please read the gracious words we have received from our clients. These special “thank you’s” make it easy for us to love what we do:

How will the money be used?
Every dollar you donate will give us the freedom to pursue our passion and complete the remaining 20% of our book: editing, designing a book cover, publicizing, and a sketch artist.
A plea from our furry friends:
Rayne and Scruffy Peters
“Please help these awesome and talented women. They spend their time styling my friends and me at adoption events, too. We end up looking so good that most of us find new mommies and daddies who just can’t resist taking us home with them! We offered to give them a million wet kisses to fund their book in return for making us stylish. They accepted the kisses, but we know that they need more help. Please participate with them, so they can continue to help others!"- Scruffy Peters (pictured above with Rayne)
What is our goal?
We want to save you time, money, and eliminate the overall stress of getting dressed everyday. We want to turn your shopping fears into shopping cheers. We want to leave you feeling fabulous, confident, and prepared for wherever the day may take you. Our goal is to leave you feeling fabulous, confident, and prepared for wherever the day may take you. In our opinion, “picking out” the right clothes is truly an art form that we have mastered.
This is our gift to every woman who has ever questioned her potential to feel and look like a million dollars!
Thank you in advance from the bottom of our shopping bags for all your contributions and support. We look forward to changing the world, one closet at a time!
