About


Alexandra can be your stylistHey, I’m Alexandra — style strategist, wardrobe rehabilitator and image expert based out of New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area.

With over thirteen years of experience styling women of all shapes and sizes under my red-patent skinny belt, the most rewarding part of my job is that I get to revamp the closets of REAL women leading REAL lives.

Women who understand that curves come and go—and that a closet crammed full of haute couture doesn’t guarantee happiness…

…or a good fit, for that matter.

Real women, like you and me.

When you’re in alignment with what looks and feels good on you, then you’ll love what you wear . . . And when you love it, you’ll wear it.

Simple, right?

THE PROCESS

I’m not interested in labels. Instead, I’m unswervingly interested in the quality and merit of a garment—and what it can do for you.When we work together, I use a four-pronged approach to help you build a workable wardrobe:

  1. My experienced eye (wink, wink)
  2. My extensive training in color palettes, fit and form
  3. My down-to-earth attitude and ability to make you smile, no matter what
  4. My holistic approach to style (because YES, your personality DOES come into this)

With my instinct for shape and color, I walk you through exactly what you should be wearing to show off your best attributes, and I teach you the fine line between when to save and when to splurge.

Simply put: you don’t have to shell out tens of thousands of dollars to look like a million bucks.

You also don’t have to look the same as everybody else.

WHY I DO WHAT I DO

In junior high during the ‘80s, while the popular crowd sauntered around clad in clothes made by ESPRIT, I realized nothing fit my figure the way I wanted it to.Frustrated by what I saw in the mirror, I became determined to be accepted by the cool kids.

But after experimenting with my look day after day, I began to rock out my own sense of style—like the flower-print Betsy Johnson dress and peplum black jacket I showed up in at my 16th birthday party (complete with long gloves, to match).

My clothes became a way for me to express myself—just like the Madonna song.

Later, after interning for a fashion PR agency in Paris and graduating from Boston University, I started an online fashion and nightlife magazine (reaching up to a million unique visitors each month).

Before long, word about my devotion to style had spread and I found myself dressing friends back in Boston and organizing fashion shows in nightclubs.

From there, I managed to land myself a PR job in New York City, before taking the plunge and deciding to become a personal stylist full time.

So I know what it’s like to want to look your best at all times—and to fall short, time and again. And nowadays it’s my passion to help as many women as possible to unravel their personal style.

This is it, for me.

And I’ve never been happier.

If you want to find a style you adore that reflects who you are, then let’s talk.

We’ll have you feeling more confident and comfortable in your own skin (and THAT dress) in no time at all.
