Chicagoans Debbie Kahn and Emily Simon launched Deco, a styling service, in late May. The women offer closet clean-outs and personal shopping; they also help their clients pack for vacations. The duo charges $85 an hour, and services begin with a consultation that pinpoints a client's current shopping habits. Then, it's time for the closet makeover. "Most of the closets we go into are just nightmares. Everything's jumbled, shoes are in piles on the floor. No wonder you can't put together an outfit — you can't see half of what you have," says Kahn. [DNA Info]
