Five years ago, leaving the corporate world behind, Elizabeth Bean Smith started her own business - a dream enterprise, but one that might've seemed a long shot in a city like Columbus.

Bean Smith shared how she makes everyday a runway.

I came to Columbus for the Limited corporation. I worked at the Express home office. I started as a visual coordinator there, then moved into being a junior stylist. I loved it. Then I got burnt out, ready to do something on my own.

The best advice I've ever received is never be afraid to follow your dreams. I guess that'd be from my dad. Everybody's parents probably tell them that, but I don't think I've ever felt like I couldn't succeed if I tried.

Wardrobe Therapy will have completed five years in August. There are stylists for celebrities. There are stylists for actors and actresses. Real women need to look good, too. We thought it was a long shot with Columbus, but there's a lot of fashion here.

A lot of people ask me, "Oh, is this what you do for a hobby?" It's like, "No, this is my career. I went to school for this." It's a craft. I wish the fashion industry didn't have a rap that way.

For the most part, fashion was my dream since I was little. I always had a ton of Barbies and Cabbage Patch Kids. My mom really never dressed us all up. We were kind of allowed to wear what we wanted to wear. I really felt like I didn't have an impression put on me - I got to sort of make my own impression.

We dressed up our cats. We did do that.

The worst fashion trend I've seen this year is some of those neon brights. I know that people love them, but they're not made for a lot of people.

The best fashion trend I've seen this year is the nude color. You're seeing it in everything - clothing, shoes, accessories, belts. I think it's really helped people who are on a budget revolutionize their wardrobe.

My favorite piece of clothing would be a jacket. I always feel great if I throw on a little blazer over a T-shirt, over a dress. A close second would be my brown riding boots.

Three things I can't live without are my family, my computer and my rolling clothes rack.
