PEOPLE SAY…

“Not only has she been a stylist to some serious A-listers and stellar brands (Taylor Swift, Kate Upton, and Nike to name a few), but she’s also the founder of xoCrystalCave.com and is creator of Not So Skinny Style School. She hones her incredible talents to help everyday women realize that impeccable style has no size!” NITIKA CHOPRA

“Before enrolling in Style School, I was fearful and frustrated with shopping for clothes. I actually hated going clothes shopping because I could never figure out what would look best on my body. I would see clothes on the mannequins and think “Oh, that’s so cute!” but when I would try on the outfit, it would look absolutely horrible on me. Style School helped me learn how to confidently shop for my body-type, and I’ve been at ease when shopping ever since. I even learned how to measure my bra size so I could buy the right size going forward (because if the girls aren’t “tight”, the outfit won’t look right!). Overall, this program has totally transformed my shopping experience, my confidence and my closet! I think I’ve been shopping every week since completing Style School! Thanks Crystal!!”

“Crystal is a true pioneer and visionary. In a culture that makes you feel like you can’t be stylish or beautiful unless you are a size 0, Not So Skinny Style School shows you that is just completely untrue! I learned how to create my own personal, unique style that fit my personality and flattered by body. I feel more comfortable shopping, putting together outfits, and deciding what works for me. Shopping used to make me cry, literally. Now I feel like I have the confidence to try on, edit, and mix and match pieces to create outfits I like. I no longer have to buy what the mannequin is wearing or go home empty handed. I also feel that going through this course with a group of other women helps build a sisterhood of support and people who are dealing with the same issues. I highly recommend Crystal’s course to anyone wanting to feel confident in their body and fabulous in their clothes!”

“Working with Crystal was seriously mind blowing! If you want to feel confident in your body and the clothes you wear Crystal is your girl!
I had no idea how simple getting dressed everyday really should be! I used to spend hours searching through my closet and looking for the right outfit. Now, I only have clothes in there that I wear/love and they are easy to find! Crystal helped me dig deeper into my style and purchase the clothes that were missing from my closet. Crystal also helped m emotionally let go of the clothes that I never wore and this made a HUGE difference in my closet.”

Crystal is an absolute GEM! When I first agreed to having a stylist help me shop for my body, I was hesitant. I’m someone who will wear all black and over sized clothing just to hide my body. When I met Crystal she went thru the process of styling me and after only a few minutes, I felt completely comfortable with her. She understood a lot of my insecurities. She had me try on different outfits. The one thing she had me try on was this turquoise/ black chevron maxi. I have never really been in to dresses since I thought it would make my mid section look bigger than what it already was. I tried it on, and she paired it with a white blazer. I was surprised when I looked in the mirror. It looked great on and I felt great! Crystal really knows what she is doing. I loved every minute of the experience. I’m so glad I found this creative beautiful human being.”

“Crystal is a fashion force to be reckoned with. I mean, pink, sparkles, and tutus? C’mon… What I love about Crystal, and her program Not So Skinny Style School, is the passion, knowledge, and sparkle she brings to the table. It’s not enough to know you like clothes and can shop; Crystal has the other half of the coin: an understanding of body types, what should be in your closet and what shouldn’t, how to save while still building your wardrobe, and how to love yourself. She re-ignited my passion for clothes and looking fabulous {and taught me how to love myself and not to effing care what anybody else thinks} and for that I am forever grateful. Before Not So Skinny Style School I thought for certain there was no way I’d ever end up wearing a two-piece swimsuit again. Through Crystal’s program I was able to identify the bikinis that would actually suit my size, frame, and skin tone, as well as where to buy said bikinis, and I look freaking fabulous in it. Even more important: I feel fabulous in it. My investment in Not So Skinny Style School was well worth it; I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to tap into who they are, fashionably, and bring that to the world.”

“I can’t tell you how proud I am of Crystal. It has been such a joy to watch her blossom into the confident, gorgeous, badass entrepreneur she is.

If you dread opening the closet door or have worn out your go-to feel good outfit, then I highly encourage you to check out Not So Skinny Style School”

SARAH JENKS

“I definitely feel so much more feminine, gentle and gorgeous in my own body! Before I worked with Crystal, my go to clothes were my classic workout gear from, what I felt was, an upscale fitness wear store. As I began my adventure as a entrepreneur, Crystal taught me to take the time to value myself and create a style. It wasn’t all about shopping, the first step for me was about organization in order to know what I had and how to coordinate. As I unveiled my chaos of a closet and we giggled a little bit together, Crystal loving helped me discover a style I was comfortable in. And there were no black yoga pants involved! It didn’t matter if I was off to meet with friends, in the midst of healing a client or even just hanging out at home. We developed a style that expressed my inner light. I am truly grateful for the comfort and confidence Crystal created to help me find my own style in my not so skinny body. I’ve always tried to hide my muscular body and with her help, I definitely feel so much more feminine, gentle and gorgeous in my own body!”

“Working with Crystal is a dream come true! I have done dozens of shoots, and I have always felt like my body was an obstacle. Stylists have always made a big deal about what color or cut I HAD to wear to hide certain parts of my body. Crystal is completely different. She celebrates the female figure in a way no stylist I’ve ever worked with has. I have never felt more confident in my body than when Crystal styled me, and those pictures absolutely show it. She’s a champion for curves and the female body and I am so grateful she exists!” ALIONKA POLANCO

Life Coach & Possibility Seer

“When it comes to fashion & style, body type is often the first thing we think of.   Crystal encourages us to move beyond this limiting belief system. Instead, we must dig into what our true essence is, and strive to showcase THAT in our wardrobe. In her years as a celebrity stylist, Crystal has found that “it’s really about bringing the inner soul of who you are as a person. THAT is what makes a Style Icon.”

“My company is all about inspiring women to tap into their inner FABULOCITY and get their messages out there in a big way. But while I was definitely comfortable being visible with my writing and message online, in a way I was still hiding and playing small because I didn’t feel confident in my in-person appearance. This made me more nervous when speaking in public (which I’m being asked to do more and more of), self-conscious during photoshoots and video interviews, and less-than-confident when it came to networking with potential clients and in-person meetings. Ultimately I think my lack of confidence in my appearance had me leaving real money on the table!

Working with Crystal changed everything!

I’m doing a video shoot this weekend for my upcoming group program launch and I feel so excited with my new clothes, and know that excitement will translate into better videos and ultimately a more profitable and stress-free launch. I also feel like my mornings are so much more fun and I’m really taking the time to get put together each day and have gotten SO MANY COMPLIMENTS!! My weight has not changed at all but I feel so much more beautiful and confident!

I literally can’t recommend working with Crystal enough!!” REBECCA RUBIN

“After years of styling celebrities & big brands from Taylor Swift, Mercedes Benz, and the Billboard Music Awards, Crystal has become a master at transformations, and not just in how women look but how they feel about themselves. Their increased self-confidence and ability to enjoy life right now are direct results of what Crystal does.”

INFLUENCERS RADIO

“Crystal Cave is a stylist who specializes in “not so skinny style”. Whether or not you identify as “not so skinny”, most of us have some kind of body hangups, and this show helps with that.”

RACHEL ROFE

“According to Crystal, style has no size. Her journey to loving her body and helping women sizes 10 and up dress with ease is so moving (I literally got goosebumps during our interview!), and her experience is what has prompted her to start the Not So Skinny Style School.”
