Introduction: *Book your complimentary closet tour * Happy 2023! I was born on the 23rd. Let’s make magic✨for you in this upcoming year. This is the power of styling with me. Hi my name is Barbra Horowitz of Intuitive Personal Styling. I offer a complimentary remote wardrobe assessment without a commitment to work together. This is how you can experience how simple it is to work via Zoom. Then book one 3 hour in person or virtual styling session for only $450 instead of $900.🪶 (new Thumbtack clients only) Continue on in your 4th hour and beyond at $200 an hour versus my normal client rate of $300 an hour. ( My very longtime clients pay between $275 - $300 hourly) I launched my virtual styling services in 2008. Now the world works remote. 👇 I have tons of styling experience over the past 19 years. I have worked in 12 states in person, around the country, and pockets of the world in person, and remotely. British Vogue was the first to cover my virtual styling sessions in 2008. That’s over 14 years styling virtually. Can you imagine! First on Skype then on FaceTime now on Zoom. Here is how it generally works: 1st session - Cleanse/Edit/Style Take pictures of styled looks. Sort clothing for alterations, donations, and resale. Create a running list while you are changing of key pieces that are missing in your wardrobe. 2nd session - I shop for you in either 120 or 180 minute increments. Together we are sending in the dressing room to your home of all returnable pieces. No commitment except to wait for your styling session to try on. Most clients who hate shopping - what I send in is easily a full day of shopping in person. 3rd session - Shopping 🛍 is very different then styling. I will be speaking a different language than you have in your time shopping. Together we will identify curated pieces with longevity, and repeat in multiple places in your life. I will take pictures of all complete looks then you return what is not needed. You are complete! ( your closet tour will determine an estimate of time needed) About me ~~~~~~~~~ I have been very fortunate to be covered in major press outlets such as British Vogue, Daily Candy, Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles magazine, LA Weekly, In Style - People Magazine/Stylewatch, and many more. Pure Wow also covered my virtual styling services. I am the published author of Closet Control published by Sterling Press in 2007. I had a very early style podcast produced by California Psychics called Fashion 411 - It’s never just about the clothing. It never is. After 8 years of handling and developing top models, Some that are huge stars today. Once I left the modeling industry, I decided to take what I learned and apply it to everyone. I grew up in menswear at my fathers store at the tender age of ten years old. I worked in retail for over 10 years for well known retailers such as: Contempo Casuals, Ann Taylor, Nordstrom, Guess, Lancôme. I have a great eye as well as knowing what clothing should cost. My fathers store was high end menswear at lower then retail prices. Follow me over on @intuitivepersonalstyling on Instagram where I share (in my stories) style, and planet friendly style, and styling tips. Congratulations working with me already makes you part of the solution around owning a more sustainable wardrobe for yourself, and our 🌎 About You ~~~~~~~~~ This is exactly how I will curate the pieces that we will acquire. Fashion is the number two offender to our environment behind agriculture. About me ~~~~~~~~ I am based in Los Angeles (People magazine called me Hollywood’s personal stylist) Without a doubt, I have dressed my share of celebrities. About you ~~~~~~~~ Styling is a portal to your intentions. It will add efficiency and value to your life coupled with immense joy. Your wardrobe tells your story of where you have been, how you were raised, and how your family participated in getting dressed. Your struggle is not imagined. About me ~~~~~~~~ Good news is: fashion and styling are my families story. It’s second nature. It is intuitive for me. It’s 46 years of my 56 year life. I better be intuitive!🤩 About you ~~~~~~~~~ So 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" About me ~~~~~~~~ I have been traveling for the past 19 years to clients in over 12 states. I have consulted for boutiques and was one ☝️ of the very first upcyclers of reworked tee shirts from Goodwill. Traveling the sample sale circuit to Chicago, New York, London, and San Francisco I was hired by major brands like Air Jordan, Forever 21, Nike, Skyy vodka to cut up custom tops from oversized branded T-shirts for the brands guests at launch parties, movie premieres, private parties. 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

I hired Barbra for a full wardrobe makeover/consultation for my girlfriend and she did not disappoint. In her words, "Barbra is incredible. As a petite woman, I have struggled my entire life to find clothes that make me feel confident. Eventually, I just gave up even trying. That’s when I found Barbra. She challenged me to try clothes that I never would’ve chosen myself, and that I ended up, absolutely loving and have become staple parts of my wardrobe. She is fun to work with and she’s hilarious, direct, and really gets a sense for your life and gets to know about you so that she can better understand what kind of clothing you actually wear. I really appreciate how much time she took to get to know me and what I do for a living so that she could understand my style. I will definitely be returning to Barbra for all of my clothing needs in the future I 100% recommend her."

At the ripe age of 72 I never thought I'd work with a wardrobe consultant. I got my fashion sense in the 70s, a thrifter at heart. But I was sick of looking in my closet and did not want to shop. Working with Barbra was a total surprise. I feel like I went to a wardrobe workshop. Had no idea how many basics I did not know. I am a physical therapist, yoga and dance teacher and am in the public eye. I just decided I wanted to "go out in style" and you could take that in more than one way! I feel like I have a new lease on life and a deep appreciation of how I dress is very much an expression of who I am and how I feel. Feels like I needed help more clearly defining the who and the how. Barbra has the eye and heart for very satisfying co-creation.

Barbra is an absolute gem. I worked with her nearly a year ago, and I am writing this review now because I am still experiencing the benefits of everything she taught me. I'm a 25 year old consultant at the beginning of my career, and I realized I barely had any professional attire for visiting clients. I figured if I was making the investment to build that part of my wardrobe from scratch, it was worthwhile to work with someone who could help me develop a strong foundation that would last. I had six consultations with stylists, and Barbra instantly became my first choice because she was the only stylist who asked me more questions about who I am as a person than questions about my job. When we met, she moved at a New York pace with a California personality - which was absolutely perfect for me. She is intentional, detail oriented, and blunt, with an insightful ability to nudge you forward towards an elevated style through a route you never would have seen coming. She showed me how to evaluate the quality of a garment and which details were trends that would make something look dated versus had staying power. We leaned heavily on consignment pieces that met my budget and reached a look that feels like me, and balances elegance with a relaxed youthfulness that is appropriate for my age. More than anything, she approached our sessions as a teacher; she wanted me to walk away from our sessions with the skills to do this myself and continue to grow. For that reason, I am still so grateful that I worked with Barbra and will always go back to her when I need a fresh perspective on my wardrobe. If you are looking for someone who will amble through Nordstrom with you and show you the Theory pants and Vince sweater that you think you want, this is not the stylist for you. If you're willing to be pushed out of your comfort zone (read: you will be uncomfy at times) to develop a more emotionally and environmentally sustainable wardrobe, work with Barbra.

Hire Barbra!!! She’s just the best at what she does. She goes above and beyond for sure. What you gain for what you spend- it’s a no brainer. She’s deeply helping you at every turn. She’s easy to trust once she gets started on your project. You’re learning the whole time. I wanted to quit toward the end of our first session because it’s a little rough to go through your entire wardrobe with someone but she’s a consummate professional and really focused. Her process is top notch. Her responsiveness is high. Best consultant I’ve ever hired. Worth it 200%!!!

Worked with B entirely virtually! She’s amazing. Honest, helpful and fun. I feel more confident with clothes I had and clothes we bought together and love the outfits we created for work and nights out! I’m so glad to have met and worked with her and look forward to using her styling services again in the spring :) Highly recommend!!
