“I loved working with Sandra. As a “plus” size girl, I have been hiding behind black tops and bottoms for years. Sandra showed me alternatives that did not intimidate me and I am incorporating the colors and items she suggested. I feel better about my appearance already. Sandra is very knowledgeable and professional, but also very friendly and genuinely cares. It’s nice to know I have someone I can trust to help me look my best. I highly recommend Sandra and Gitana Styling.”

“I thoroughly loved this experience and would recommend it to anyone looking for a Personal Stylist. Sandra got me and my style down so well, from a chic, classy & sophisticated look to my wild, inner rock chick side. She seemed to just ‘get me’. The looks were put together beautifully and in a way that was easy to understand. It is so much fun and you will feel great afterwards. Thank you Sandra.”

She helped me find outfits that would have never crossed my mind to wear but made me look fabulous. She knows her craft and I would recommend her work to anyone who wants to look like a million bucks!”
