What People Say
In two quick, easy and FUN appointments, Catherine helped me discard current clothes that no longer were a good fit and also got me well on my way to a new wardrobe that I love. I couldn't believe we got so much done so fast. HIGHLY recommend.

It has been my experience that there are very few things in this world that actually exceed your expectations. Catherine Horgan, however, has proven me wrong. Passionate, talented, professional, detailed, clever, and pretty much über fabulous in every sense of the word. And then there are her shoes.

So I've tried StichFix and Nordstrom personal shopping a couple of times now and hands down my best outfits and favorite items come from collaborating with you. You get me. You challenge me. You make sense. You are in high demand for a reason.
I’m back from LA and just wanted you to know that the dress was a huge hit on the red carpet! Someone actually came up to me and asked me who I was wearing. Now I'm ready for spring shopping. Thank you so much for another successful styling session!
Before our style session, I was very discouraged with my wardrobe and how things fit. But today you managed to make me feel lighter by shedding the clothes that didn’t work and getting me excited about the prospect of turning this aspect of my life around. You have given me a sense that it can actually be done — and it might end up being fun. It was certainly fun today! So thank you. I look forward to our next outfit-making session. It was a pleasure to work with you!
Wow! Thank you for the endless combinations that make up tons of outfits! In addition to all the outfits, I really appreciate that you got me into clothes that fit better (smaller size!). I thought they'd feel tight and uncomfortable, but they don't! Also, I really love all the new color combination you introduced to me. It's funny that I can do color in other aspects of my life, but for some reason, until you, I felt timid about wearing color. Thank you for all your hard work!

I got so many compliments on my summer wardrobe, selected and coordinated by you, that I must shop with you every season. Again, you hand picked my fall wardrobe that suits my style and every occasion in my life. You are worth every penny!
I enjoyed every minute of our style sessions together and can't wait until our next one! My closet — and my style — have a whole new life. Thanks to you!
It was a pleasure working with you. You have a great talent working with clothes and people. I am so enjoying all the outfits we put together. In fact, that night after you left I was so excited I could not get to sleep! I went to my luncheon the next day and wore the 'yellow top and red shoes outfit' and was the most colorful in the room. I loved it! Thank you for teaching me to be more selective with what I buy. I will no longer try to make something work just because I bought it. Instead, I will only buy what's right for me based I what I learned from you. Thanks for everything!
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your help. It was the best experience and gave me great confidence in my style. Getting an outfit together is so much easier and less time-consuming for me now. I even manage to stay in the same outfit all day. It is such great feeling to be able to run errands, pick up the kids from school and even go to dinner without changing 3 times! You changed the way I think about clothes and how I wear them and I am so thankful for your help. I've referred to my photos several times and have added most of the items you suggested. I don't know how I ever lived without leggings and boots in my closet!
Thank you for all of your advice, guidance and hard work in my closet. I feel like I have a totally new wardrobe without buying a thing! It is so much easier to walk in and pick out an outfit that I like and feel good wearing. We absolutely met all of my goals and I cannot wait to get together again this upcoming season.
Not only are you seriously skilled in purging a closet and putting outfits together (can't wait to get together again soon), but you are also super quick to pick up the wardrobe items I need, making my life easy and stress-free. Thank you!

Thanks to you, for the first time in history I didn't feel the need to shop for the season. You showed me that I had everything I needed already. And you opened my eyes to new ideas, working with the wardrobe I have and utilizing many of the pieces in fresh ways. No more buying clothes willy nilly. Everything from here on out has a purpose.
You have forever changed the way I think about clothes and how I wear them. I cannot thank you enough for such insight into my personal style and lifestyle. It's such a relief knowing that I have you as my style lifeline.
Thank you for packing me for my multi-destination international trip, putting my travel outfits together with every last detail. You took away any pre-trip anxiety I had. And I really appreciate the adjustments you made when the weather changed unexpectedly. A life saver you are!
The most valuable and impressive traits about you as a stylist are your expedience (we accomplished so much in 2 hours) and your keen ability to identify and emphasize positive body characteristics, while minimizing those that one doesn’t want highlighted. I never knew my body type and now it totally makes sense! And thanks to the closet revivals … I love wearing those items I once classified as goners. I refer back to the pictures of the outfits you put together all the time and always get a ton of compliments when I wear them.
Without your personal shopping expertise, I would have never found those perfect pair of black pants! And though I resisted the hot pink shirt you picked out, I ended up buying it, loving it, and getting it in a purpley-blue color, as well. You definitely know what you are doing. Thanks!
Over the past several months, I have faithfully been following Catherine's advice and style tips — to much success. At an event last night, a bunch of 20-somethings told me how stylish they think I am. It's all you! Thank you for your constant inspiration!!

Thank you for speaking at our 2010 National League of Junior Cotillions national convention! It was very much a pleasure having you instruct our directors on the best ways to present themselves for their classes and events. I can't tell you how many directors enjoyed your segment. Thank you again!
I think the most helpful things that I took away from my consultations with Catherine were validation and self-confidence. I have great wardrobe pieces, but I either never wore them or didn't think I could wear them. I also seemed to dress well enough, but I just couldn't get to the polished stage. Just a few hours went a long way, and now getting an outfit together is much easier and less time-consuming.
Let me first say, you are a real value. I don't feel like I have to spend hardly any more money to get me through the summer now that I can use what is in my wardrobe in different ways. And I feel like I can identify what I want, what works for me and I feel more confident in my purchases (as opposed to always taking them back). I really, really enjoyed our time together! You got me INSPIRED! I have gotten my jewelry better organized and now I actually wear it! Awesome! Just awesome!

You are an awesome and extremely knowledgeable personal stylist! Anyone would be lucky to enlist your services for a closet purge and styling session. You did a fabulous job getting my wardrobe in shape. I love the outfits you put together for me - many of which I would’ve never put together! You stretched me out of my comfort zone to make more of a statement when I dress. And it feels great! No more sweatpants to the grocery store, I promise!
All I can say is … Wow!! The color analysis is terrific, Catherine! This was completely beyond my expectations, and I am so grateful to you for sharing your expertise with me!
The journey keeps getting better! First, you set me straight with my body type and put together outfits that fit my style and my shape. Second, your Closet of Style-inspired outfits are turning heads (for all the right reasons). The other day I was pushing my son in the stroller up to our play group and was, of course, wearing a Closet of Style revamped outfit (layered tanks in black and bright green, boyfriend jeans rolled up, Dansko Sissy platform sandals in sparkly red, huge gold bangle, bandana headband, dangly gold earrings and my new Michael Kors sunglasses). A college boy stopped his car to ask me for directions and when we finished talking he said, 'Are you really a mom?!?' That alone is worth any price, in my opinion!
I have been so pleased with your services. I refer to my Style Book all the time, referencing the countless outfits you put together for me. You have saved me time and money by helping me use the clothes I already own and filling in with only the items I need. You are a pleasure to work with!
When Catherine came into my closet, it was the best shopping spree I had ever been on. She pulled out skirts that needed to be shortened, purged clothes that were hopeless, put outfits together and gave me tips on what to add. "Tall black boots and one pair of high heel shoes"... a clear, concise shopping list and she even sent websites making it easier to buy what I needed. It's a great feeling to put on an outfit and already know that it's a hit!! Catherine put me in some great greens and blues this summer, colors out of my comfort zone. I could see the impact the colors had on my eyes and I loved it. She has a great eye for whatever style you are trying to accomplish and I especially love her videos!! I finally know how to tie those scarfs sitting in my closet and I love wearing them as a fun accessory! I truly love having CONFIDENCE in my style!!! Thank you Catherine!
My work has to make a visual impact. Thank you for always ensuring that my style is polished and client ready — and suited to my personal style! Your enthusiasm is contagious and boosts my confidence. I value the guidance I continue to receive from you and am always looking forward to our next style session!
I am very happy that I chose Closet of Style as a gift for my wife. You are a truly talented woman. You made my wife feel very comfortable and you accomplished a lot (23 outfits, impressive). I look forward to sharing with others the success you had in working with my wife. She was absolutely thrilled to meet you and thrilled with the progress the two of you accomplished.
What you have done for me and my wardrobe is beyond words. I feel much more confident when I get dressed now, and I'm more confident in the items I choose. Of course I notice a difference which is enough in itself, but the fact that everyone else notices a 'change' in me is a bonus!
Thank you for being so good at what you do! Shopping with you is definitely a huge value. There were so many mistakes I would have made on my own!!! And you found the perfect pair of pants for my shape, the perfect shoes for my lifestyle and fantastic accessories! What a great follow up to our first session in my closet. You and your list ... very thorough.
