Introduction: For the very first time (for new clients only) I am dialing back my $300 an hour rate to where I began in 2004. While Covid has us all assessing our new life and our old wardrobe - I want to be part of your conscious closet clearings. You can book my remote services for $150 an hour. Time is on your side when we work in your wardrobe together and for a limited time, book one introductory 3 hour styling session, for only $300 total instead of $900.😱 It is a new world and your wardrobe has most likely atrophied from not being tended to, cleared and merged cohesively. Clothing clutter can be exhausting when you are only seeing one tenth of the trees in your forest.👇 I have tons of experience just see below. I have been remote styling since 2008. Lucky enough to have press coverage from British Vogue and Pure Wow for my remote styling sessions. That’s over 13 years styling virtually waiting for the world to catch up on Zoom. I am an intuitive personal stylist and the author of Closet Control - Sterling Press - 2007. I have been very fortunate to be covered in major press outlets such as British Vogue, In Style - People Magazine/Stylewatch Daily Candy and much more. After a successful career as a modeling agent handling top models and models in development, I decided to take what I learned and apply it to everyone. I am based in Los Angeles so without a doubt, I have dressed my share of celebrities, but I am much more interested in men and women who are navigating their lives through their wardrobe. I use clothing as a medium to channel and challenge societal standards. I will help you break through cultural and familial baggage. Why do I have a career as a personal stylist One word: "Never." "I NEVER would have bought that." "I NEVER would have put that together." "I NEVER would have thought of that" I have been working for the past 17 years in over 12 states. New York is where the bulk of my clients live. I was going a few times a year prior to Covid. I am based at the beach in Los Angeles. Barbra recalls how the people around her inspired the decision to become a professional stylist. “My cousin Betsy came to me one day, explaining, ‘Barbra, I feel good on the inside, I want to match it up on the outside. Can you help me with that thing you do in the closets?’ I answered, ‘The family parlor tricks?’ My mom has been selling her and our clothing way before eBay, and moving furniture and cutting up clothing were sort of the family mantra,” she shares. “Add in my father owning a high-end menswear store at a discount. Watching a tailor custom-fit suits didn’t hurt my understanding for fit as one of the most important elements of style.” According to Barbra, simply style and fashion are about development—what you don’t know, learn, and what you do know, teach. “This is how the family parlor tricks became a business, and a book by Sterling Press called Closet Control,” she says. *interview excerpted from Southbay Magazine

Wardrobe Consulting

Barbra is fantastic! She’s got a lot of experience and brings such an eclectic and creative vision to the clothes you already have. We are doing a massive closet edit, as putting some new outfits together from clothes I already have and shopping for luxury staples that will be the base of my wardrobe. I couldn’t be happier. I love her spirit and energy too! Such a great eye opening treat to work with Barbra.

Such an eye-opening experience! Barbara knows what she is doing and is not afraid to get you out of your confort zone to get you where you want/need to go! Definitely would recommend her services to ANYONE! She is energetic and in a few minutes can widen your perception of your wardrobe. She created several outfits mixing items that I owned and that I would have never thought off putting together and made me look and feel confident and ready for my upcoming interviewing process for my next career step! I have come to acknowledge that the same way we trust some areas of our lives to the professionals, there is no reason not to consult such an important task (getting dressed every day and projecting your true self!) with someone who has the expertise and drive to change your perception and give you a push towards what you want to achieve! Working online was easy and effective! She makes herself available and will use every second together to help you more and more. Barbara knows her business and knows how to read you, interpret your needs and wants and provide amazing advise.

Barbra has done an amazing job with my wardrobe. I’m a 25yr old guy and it’s really been amazing, I’ve been seeing a very dramatic difference in the way people act towards me even after only one session with Barbra. She is amazing, and very responsive digitally.

I am so thrilled that I met Barbara and about all the changes she made in the way I look and feel! I contacted Barbara, because I desperately needed some help with my wardrobe: having full closet and yet nothing to wear, spending hours in the stores and leaving empty-handed ... Setting up the appointment was easy: we talked for 15-20 minutes on the phone, I explained my needs and difficulties, and Barbara explained how she works with out of town clients. We agreed on our first online session. During this session Barbara reviewed my closet and compiled a couple of outfits from my own pieces, in a very creative and flattering way. When next day I showed up at work (in my own old stuff!) I got so many complements! Even my husband noticed a change:) Once Barbara knows your wardrobe and needs, working with her is very easy and fast. I don't go shopping anymore. Barbara compiles the shopping list - and she works with my budget in mind - we were shopping at Target, Nordstrom Rack , Amazon , and sometimes complemented it with some higher end pieces from the resale market. Once everything is delivered we set up an online styling session and she shows me how to wear and combine pieces. Then I return whatever we decided not to keep. We did a couple of short online sessions before I went on vacation, for the date night or just casual outings. It is fast, convenient and a great value.

Barbra is amazing!!!! She is interested in finding the best style for your unique life and goals. She understands how to elevate your life by elevating your personal style. There is nothing formulaic or "one size fits all" about the way Barbra consults with you, it is a completely custom approach that is tailored to your individual needs. I highly recommend her.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Today is the day you begin again! When you connect the dots in your clothing, everything falls into place.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I need to get into your head. So much of what you are feeling is perception not reality. How you grew up, how your family spent money on clothing for you. You bring this all with you in a big ol' suitcase, or rather clothing you cannot let go of - Once I dig in like a lawyer doing discovery. You have gotten a lot off your chest, and I have learned a lot. We are now warm and ready to hit the road. The closet is where it all begins. After 17 years I know you have holes. If I am working with you online, I may have to stop your session and fill some of those holes in with a quick 30 or 60-minute online shopping session so we can resume editing. Alternatively, if I am coming to you for your first session in person, I will create the same edit to arrive just in time. In one session you begin an entirely new journey.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    My resume is very linear. I grew up in retail (menswear) then worked in retail for over ten years. I managed several cosmetic counters for 5 years of the ten. I went on to become a modeling agent for 8 years. I developed many careers of models working today as well as some high profile celebrities. I understand development and branding. I get you found, seen and remembered.
