    Thanks!
    Was able to refer me to some stylist she knew could master my design.

    When it was prom time for my daughter, I knew right away who I would go to for that. Ursula did the damn thing (pardon my expression). My daughter was estatic as Ursula captured the exact look that she wanted to go for. From the dress, shoes accessories and hair tips, we were soooooo pleased at the outcome and almost a year later folks still comment to my daughter on how beautiful she looked on prom night. I will always trust and support Ursula when it comes to her styling technique. She was graced with a beautiful gift and I thank her for sharing it with us. You will go far doll! Keep doing what you do. ?

    If my budget allowed I wouldn't don a sock before getting Ursula's input. In fact I've dreamed about earning my millions (or hitting the lottery), calling Ursula and saying, "whatever your retainer is please send an invoice for me and my family. You will style everything we wear from now until we're no longer here." I'm not joking. I'm no one's fashionista. Before Ursula I was a proud plain Jane who gloried in keeping it simple. Then I hired Ursula to style me for several events. I was astonished that she changed my views about fashion 180 degreees with just a few outfits, accessory enhancements, and makeup suggestions. I was very confident about my appearance before meeting her but when she styled me I was floored. She's an artist. She's knowledeable. She researches and is always prepared. She kept my styles and preferences in mind but pushed the envelop and expanded my view and boundaries while respecting my styling desires. There's no exaggeration when I say I was simply astounded with her results. My confidence was good. She put it in the stratosphere. Those are my remarks regarding her styling. I don't impress easily. I am amazed by her talent. Her professionlism is also worthy of substantial note. She is timely. She is respectful. I appreciate all aspects of conducting business with her. I recommend her services without reservation!

    Ursula is a fabulous stylist, who knows her stuff, and her clients and their needs! I believe she visualizes us in whatever she chooses (outfit, shoes, accessories) because it always is exactly what's needed! I don't do special events without her service (which reminds me I need to hire her soon!). She is A+++!

    I am so fashion challenged, it's not even funny! But with Ursula's coaching and tips, I now feel confident dressing myself for most occasions. It's gone from getting compliments only on the outfits she styled to getting the occasional compliment on outfits I chose myself. I consider that a HUGE success, and it's only possible with Ursula!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
All new customers receive an approx. 20-minute consultation. Each consultation covers style preferences, style goals and budget. I am able to tailor my service to meet your specific requirements; however, in the rare chance I am not the right fit I will do my best to guide you to the next steps.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
The fashion industry is a very faced-paced industry. To stay a step ahead I review collections and trends six, some times 12, months before everyone else; attend runway shows and private label trunk-show events. I also have exclusive access to trend reports from around the world. Armed with this knowledge I am able to tell you what's coming next so you can start investing right away and be fashionable ahead of the rest.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
All initial consultations are free. For Men: With our clothier service (custom shirts, made-to-measure suits or extended sizing), you simply pay for the items you love / want to purchase. Personal Styling services are billed hourly (minimum of 2 hours) and determined by the service needed.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
For as long as I can remember I have always had an infinite love for fashion and personal styling. At a young age I designed clothes and even worked backstage at local fashion shows. As my skills and talents in the industry progressed, I finally decided to pursue Personal Styling as a business through my love for wanting to help people feel and look their very best.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with an array of customers from business men and women, to athletes and entertainers. I've also done work for large organizations such as the NFL. With this array of work I noticed a common thread: One of active forwardly mobile people who want to update their professional and social wardrobe.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I produce a men's fashion, grooming and lifestyle segment for MyNEWPhilly.com called The Gents Manual (see the latest episodes on my website under the same name). As well as participate as one third of a fashion team, as a style expert to review some of the most notable red carpet events. 2016’s Stomp The Runway Against Sexual Abuse as the Celebrity Stylist - Bernard Hopkins was one of the highlights. The National Football League (NFL) hired me as their Key Stylist for a digital lookbook, where I showed women how to stylize NFL 2015 women's apparel for any occasion. The NFL required I style approximately 16 looks (head to toe outfits) over a 3 day shoot. I provided 40+ looks and the shoot was complete in 2 days.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
It's vital to work with a professional who listens to your styles preferences and wardrobe needs, who is then able to translate that into wearable head-to-toe outfits. And who is also shopping savvy - one who can purchase luxury without breaking the bank.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
A few questions to consider before engaging a Personal Stylist or Wardrobe Consultant: Do you want a complete overhaul, replace or update several looks or just need an outfit for an event or special occasion? How do you want to look and feel? Is there a style icon or someone whose style you admire? (having a visual/photo of that person is a great start)
