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)
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 🌎
This is exactly how I will curate the pieces that we will acquire. Fashion is the number two offender to our environment behind agriculture.
I am based in Los Angeles (People magazine called me Hollywood’s personal stylist) Without a doubt, I have dressed my share of celebrities.
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.
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!🤩
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"
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.
