MEET THE OWNER

When terms like talented, a natural, elevated taste level, stylish are being tossed into the universe the name "STYLEGURUTJ' is close in vicinity. Born and raised in Compton, CA Toya J was always told that she was special, different and unique. But until recently she had no clue what that really meant. After multiple career changes, it wasn't until 10 years ago she walked into her purpose.

Toya decided to walk by faith and not by sight; while leaving everything and everybody she ever knew in California.  It was a scary decision, but it was the best one she could every make. It was a sister at church who whispered life into "STYLEGURU" and said "you know you should be a Buyer for a boutique". Not having a clue what a Buyer, TJ landed a job in a corporate buying office in Houston, TX in 2007.  Drive and determination catapulted her to a Buyer position in less than 5 years.

The last few years have been a quite an interesting ride for "TJ" while climbing the corporate ladder in a home furnishing division, she was behind the scenes building the image that would get her noticed as a force in fashion. Concrete Rose Boutique came alive in 2009, two years after relocating to Houston, TX.   Strangers would walk up to TJ and ask, "where do you shop”, " I love your outfit” it was then TJ knew her sole purpose was to make people feel good about themselves through wardrobe. The saying "when you look good, you feel good" set the foundation for the brand. She has had record setting sales success within her 9-5, and many accolades like "Reinvention of the Year" and "Best Visual Merchandising" all while building Concrete Rose Boutique & The Link (a Style Expert agency). STYLEGURU's design style has been featured on numerous fashion and home decor blogs. TJ is a master of taking things from DRAB to FAB!

Her most recent efforts have been re-vamping celebrity & entrepreneur Adreea Jackson; sister of NFL super star Desean's Jackson's image. 

 

From image consulting, wardrobe styling, home staging, trend consulting, STYLEGURUTJ can beautify any canvas. Her goal is to create captivating, relatable style that changes a person’s mood confidence level one look at a time. Her belief is that everything/everyone is a canvas and should be styled & staged and take on its own personality.
