Drop Shadow

Heyyyyyy to my valued clients and supporters,

I wanted to reach out to let you know that Chic & Classy Image Consulting will be taking a temporary break. Fortunately, this decision is necessary due to a long time medical issue that is finally getting resolved and requires all of my immediate attention. As a result, our services will be on hiatus from March 2024, with an expected return in June 2024.

I am deeply grateful for your understanding and unwavering support during this challenging time. Your patience and grace mean the world to me, and I am truly thankful for your continued loyalty.

Please know that I am committed to returning refreshed and ready to serve you with the same level of professionalism, style, sass and dedication that you have come to expect from Chic & Classy Image Consulting, Khalilah Jones

Warm regards,


Snow Covered Trees

About Me

Get ready to dive into the fabulous world of creativity, honey! Picture this: me, surrounded by the dazzling universe of fashion and marketing, experimenting with all things stylish and strategic. But guess what? In 2018, I stumbled upon my one true love – the magic of turning passion and dreams into a visual reality!

There's nothing quite like soaking in a client's enthusiasm for their business or hearing someone spill the tea about their dream image. It's like an instant brain boost and a shot of creative fuel that sets my imagination ablaze.

My work? Oh, it's not just featured; it's sashaying down runways of exhibits, strutting its stuff in shows, gracing the glossy pages of publications, and making waves across various media outlets. But here's the real kicker – I'm dreaming big, darling. One day, I'm going to own an entire show, a spectacle that's an explosion of my own creations. Get ready for a front-row seat to the fabulousness I'm bringing to the world!

Thanks for making my Granddaughter feel so special today. She has sent me lots of pictures of her special day no matter what people say about you, you are a pretty amazing, unique person with a big heart. Keep grinding and speaking your truth. God is elevating you to a whole other level. Get ready, get ready. Thank you. My daughter has 6 kids, and I am glad she got to enjoy her day with her oldest daughter. Community Support (Doris S.)

…I needed to share, I continue to hear everyone talk about the Festival and the fashion show…. Khalilah you have impacted so many lives and homes and I am so damn proud of you!! But listen to this… we are running back to the park and these kids are posted up on their bikes and this little beauty steps out and shouts “I know you” and points directly to me… I was like oh you do? She came over and was like I know you from you walking at the fashion show. Creative Direction (Ciera E.)

Thank you for always encouraging and motivating me to apply that pressure. When I gained a stylist, I also gained someone that I will always cherish. When we met, you immediately understood my vision about the type of modeling I wanted to do, and honestly it's been UP ever since ! I appreciate you so MUCH Queen for everything you have done for me, down to mentioning my name in rooms l've never been in! Miss ma'am you are IT! Image Consulting (Micah W.)

As a natural introvert, I sought out Khalilah for her communication and public speaking skills. She handles speaking engagements with confidence, style and grace. Khalilah has great expertise in knowing how to present electronic communications at the right time and with the right look to capture the interest of readers. She synthesizes information into videos as well and lends such a professional look and feel to our all-volunteer organization. When we were growing our contact list, she recommended we use a specific tool and she set up and produces our monthly newsletters. Month after month, we receive compliments from newsletter recipients, including to my surprise one month, a text message from our ACPS Assistant Superintendent, Dr Bernard Hairston. She knows exactly how to handle inquiries from the press and can handle interviews on the fly with ease. When our group became an official nonprofit organization and set up a board, Khalilah was able to apply her previous board experience to help guide the rest of us that were new to the role. Personally as well as a community volunteer, I’ve benefited from Khalilah’s balanced approach to life and work that I feel lends itself towards healthy commitments of time and energy. I’ve met many amazing community volunteers over the past 2 years- it’s been a great honor to learn and grow from Khalilah's unique personal gifts in the process!!! Brand Image Consulting (Amanda A.)

If you have an accessory or a piece of clothing that you're having a hard time trying to find something to go with it, wanting a new look, have an event to go to or fresh out of new style ideas, then hit my girl Chic & Classy Image Consulting, Khalilah Jones up and she will provide you with a customized look book for that particular item and deets on where to purchase the items. When I tell you she provided me with 5 different styles that work wonderfully with my item and did it all in less than 24 hours...she is the truth! Not to mention a gem! And VERY affordable. Like her page and hit her up cause sis knows fashion

Personal Styling (Bonita R.)

...want to thank Khalilah again for her help with the 2023 recap newsletter and pass on the compliments I have received.

I love how it turned out.

  • The year end summary was excellent and what a good idea. You are keeping WUP front and center in members' minds. Thank you.
  • What a thrill it was to receive this remarkable email piece reflecting on all that we have done this calendar year. Wow!
  • When I received this email and clicked "Year-end Recap, I was amazed! It's so attractive and beautifully displayed all the wonderful things our organization does for our community, as well as the fun we have together! Brand Image Consulting (Kristin B.)

A beautiful thing happened and we've finally had a moment to pause and share! Our community does this beautiful thing where it thinks about us and the children and families we serve. Chic & Classy Image Consulting, Khalilah Jones very kindly held a doll drive for us and another service provider! We received so many beautiful brown dolls for our kids to have as their very own and see themselves in! The representation and diversity in these dolls is EVERYTHING! We are so grateful that our community continues to support us and our children!
