Chicago personal shopping or my year-long coaching-meets style program, Stylist in Your Back Pocket.
Hi! I'm Hanna—owner of Hanna Lee Style. A sensitive, introvert-meets-extrovert that could spend hours reading or chatting about the meaning of life. A cliched coffee lover, mom, entrepreneur and life-long learner.
Growing up, my Grandma Jean was my style icon. She looked so polished and beautifully put together. I loved her style. I loved how she showed up despite living in a super small farm town.
When I first began my business it was PURE passion- a love for shopping. (I was 14 years old scrolling Neiman Marcus’ website for hours).
Somewhere along the way or perhaps coupled with TV commercial styling, I began feeling shame around shopping. (The TV and print advertisements were such high-stress and I guess part of me was dumbfounded how stressful it was. I wanted to shout at people “We’re not saving lives folks! It’s JUST an outfit!”) Yikes.
The waste was out of control.
That led to my sustainability crusade (coupled with me also inheriting and wearing my grandma’s wardrobe which I love).
I suddenly spent years questioning the business I’d built.
Yet, I kept coming back to it because my biggest value, relationships, was being fulfilled- my clients were what kept me going.
And, here I am, almost 15 years later, shopping professionally and supporting women to be their best selves.
How lucky am I?
My “official” bio as a stylist:
I’ve been a personal stylist for over a decade and have worked on sets of TV commercials and print advertisements with many Fortune 500 companies like Kraft, Pepsi-Co, Special K and more, but I like to think I both inherited the style gene naturally and was a lifelong learner watching my Grandma Jean, my style icon.
My grandma Jean was my style icon growing up. I LOVED how she always looked so put-together and stylish, no matter the setting.
After her death I inherited a lot of her wardrobe so I was privileged to experience high-end designers and classics like Chanel, YSL and more.
The dress, right, did not fit when I first inherited it but kept it at the time because it felt like art (beauty) to me. I grew into it and wore it to my baby shower. It felt kind of full-circle-y for me.
ps- this inspired, albeit, inadvertently, my love for secondhand
“I’m 1.5 weeks back at work after maternity leave and have used my outfits almost every day. It truly has made getting ready in the AM effortless!”
“I was relieved to find out that Hanna would be taking me to a store where my money could go further. She made it very easy and enjoyable.”
“Hanna is amazing! I contacted Hanna to help my college age daughter put together interview and work outfits. It was a tough job because my daughter is in a field that is mostly men, wants to still look youthful, professional, has to be able to move around, and the clothes to be easy care. Hanna took her time to listen to her requests, really get to know my daughter’s style, and worked with the parameters and budget. From the shoes up to the jewelry and even alterations — we were so impressed.
