  • What do personal stylists do?
    A personal stylist is someone who helps others look and feel their best by identifying their unique, personal style. A personal stylist will regularly assist with immediate wardrobe needs such as shopping & planning outfits for parties, events, business and holiday travels, etc. At Styled by Paula, our mission is to build confidence through your wardrobe.
  • What makes a good personal stylist?
    A good personal stylist has knowledge of a broad spectrum of designers, brands, and trends while taking into account which colors, silhouettes, and styles best suit each individual client. A good personal stylist will have excellent communication skills in order to provide a seamless experience. At Styled by Paula we want to understand who you are! Your wants, needs, lifestyle and goals in order to communicate that through your wardrobe.
  • Why should I hire SBP over another personal styling company?
    Earning a degree does not set you apart, experience in your field does. Paula has been in the fashion/retail industry for over 20 years. Her professional experiences as an international modeling, a former boutique owner, a personal shopper for Bloomingdales and Nordstrom and with a degree in fashion merchandising has led her to perfect the art of building confidence through wardrobe. Paula takes pride in educating her clients and helping them understand what flatters each individual.
  • What if my style is totally different from yours?
    One of the first things you will discuss during the style consultation is your lifestyle; what you like/dislike, what you feel the best in and what you prefer to camouflage. This allows Paula to get a good sense of personal preferences and how you want to elevate your wardrobe. The stores and items are based on you, combined with years of industry experience. At Styled by Paula we will always shop with intention, you are the priority.
  • What areas do you serve? Do you travel to other areas? Can I travel to shop with you?
    Styled by Paula primarily serves the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas metroplex. However, we do travel to our clients all over the U.S., or our clients travel to us. We can work virtually on a case-by-case basis as well. Please reach out for more information regarding virtual or out-of-town services. Tel: (214) 699-9470
  • What’s the typical process?
    The goal is to understand your immediate needs. For new clients we frequently recommend starting with a Closet Edit to remove what no longer serves you. If your closet feels fully stocked, we’ll book a styling session to make the most of 'outfits at your fingertips'. Or, we may proceed with a Shopping Appointment to intentionally fill the gaps and holes in your capsule wardrobe.
  • How much time should I schedule?
    Every client’s wardrobe is different. I will typically ask for a photo of your closet/wardrobe during our style consultation to provide a customized estimate.
  • How do you decide what should stay and what should go?
    We use our years of experience and knowledge in the industry along with factors like fit, lifestyle, goals, quality, and versatility to determine what stays and what goes. Outdated styles, over-worn pieces (hello pilled sweater), and wrong sizes are some examples.
  • What should I do with the items I no longer want? What can I consign?
    We recommend donating to women's shelters or goodwill. Some clients prefer to donate to their church or local drives. If you have lightly worn designer clothing, shoes, and accessories we can help you set up a re-sell account with consignment shops! Who doesn't love cash back? We are happy to facilitate the process on all donations and consignments.
  • How do I pay for my service?
    We do require a valid form of payment on file, and we do charge prior to your appointment. Available payment options are cash, check, debit, or credit card. For Shopping Appointments, we do charge your shopping budget prior to your appointment.
  • How much should I plan to spend on new clothing?
    Every client’s needs are different. Based on your initial conversation, during your style consultation, a recommended budget will be shared based on objectives and goals. The intentions are to build a wardrobe meant to last. SBP will recommend an array of items that are (and are not) worth investing in. Your wardrobe checklist will prioritize key pieces, but not all items need to be purchased at one time or even in one season.
  • Can I give your services as a gift?
    Absolutely! We love sharing an experience gift with loved ones. We can offer any of our services as a gift based on their needs which we can help identify with you. It is important that whoever takes part in this process really wants it, so we do recommend including them in the process.
