Having a Personal Styling Session can be very daunting. Our focus is to make our Style Angel client at ease as quick as possible so she can enjoy the style experience.
Great Client Reviews are what makes our business tick as we know we have done a good job of giving our client confidence and a wonderful experience.
We are not there to judge but to share all styling knowledge so she feels more confident about how she looks.
We have witnessed jumps of exhilaration, squeals of joy and very big smiles in the change room.
Looking after you is a great honour!
We love it when we receive messages from our clients that they enjoyed their style session. It is a private time for them hence we do not take pictures during they session.
No one likes to be on the Internet without the best lighting, great make up and a nice blow dry. What you will see below is a selection of images of our VIP clients who were treated to a make over.
We thank each Style Angel client for their permission to publish their thoughts from the heart.
Sally from Thornleigh booked in for a Style Session and a Make Up Lesson
Collette from Drummoyne was given a Christmas Git Voucher and booked in for a Style Session and a Wardrobe Styling
“After 3 years wearing Maternity or “Breastfeeding-kind” clothes having had two kids, I wanted to feel more feminine again. Angela was inspirational. She took a quick look through my wardrobe told me what “gaps” needed filling and listened to my needs.
Then we went off on a shopping trip to Chatswood that left me feeling like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. With just a few core items for my wardrobe and some great fashion accessories plus other bits and pieces Angela transformed my wardrobe.
Every item Angela picked for me, even if I was a little hesitant, once I tried it on it made perfect sense and looked great! Later that day I put on one of the outfits that Angela had picked out for me and I received numerous compliments from my partner and friends we met that evening. It gave me such a confidence boost!
I was so inspired by Angela’s choices that I had Angela come back a week later for a wardrobe makeover, which was great! She helped me clear out a lot of stuff, but better again she showed me how to mix and match items that I would never have put together in my wardrobe and would have probably thrown out or never worn again.
My wardrobe is now still functioning as it did when Angela styled it (you’ll be glad to hear Angela!), it has taken the stress out of finding items to wear and match and the layout is just great. I’ve raved to all my friends and family about my two experiences!
Cannot recommend Angela enough, she gave me a boost when I needed it most. Leave it to the expert she certainly knows her stuff, plus she is such a lovely person to deal with.
Thanks again Angela and I will be in touch again soon!!”
Sue Taylor, From Corporate High Flyer To Enjoying Life
“I recently took early retirement after working in a corporate environment for more than 34 years,” says Sue Taylor, a lover of golf.
“With a wardrobe full of office wear, I had no idea what to wear casually. I was in a style rut.”
Sue met with stylist Angela for the first time at the Penrith Diana Ferrari store for a style session.
“Angela opened my eyes to casual fashion and it’s given me a new lease on life. I feel so much better about myself when I feel confident about my clothes.”
Kelly from Penrith booked in for a Style Session.
“Hi Angela, I absolutely loved my session today. I am so amazed and I love every one of my items I bought. I walked away stunned as I have never looked this great and modern! Once again thank you so much!”
Sarah from the Hills District booked in for a Style Session.
“Thank you so much for your time, help and advice on Thursday. I had a great time and found it so helpful! I love the pieces I came home with and feel so much more confident in re-building my wardrobe with basic key pieces, fun on-style clothes and accessories too.
All your suggestions made so much sense and have given me a lot to think about. I’m so glad that I organised myself to come and meet you and feel inspired for future shopping! I have already started looking through some of your Pinterest boards. I will be sure to recommend you to family and friends!”
Melanie booked in for a 2 hour Style Session
“Thanks so much! I had a lovely time during my Style Session Erina. You put me completely at ease and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with you.
And on top of that I came home with some really useful additions to my wardrobe and I have a better idea of what I need to look for in the future.
So I am feeling a lot more confident with my wardrobe choices and I am excited about dressing-up in my new outfits.
As I walked through the airport security gate today a lady walked up and complimented me on the jacket I was wearing. It was the one we selected yesterday. That has never happened to me before.”
Brenda from Palm Beach booked in for a STYLE SESSION
“It was a great day, Angela was very knowledgable, but not pushy. She knew which shops were having sales, (which helped the budget go further) and really got the choice of clothes correct for my style”
Catherine from Concord received a Gift Voucher from her daughter Erin for a STYLE SESSION
Narelle, from Drab to Fab
Marriage celebrant Narelle Murray was one of Style Angel’s clients who struggled with her shape and issues with her knees and feet. She was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1997 and never gave much thought to what she was wearing.
“I hated my body and I always wore baggy, mainly black clothes – I looked like the Vicar of Dibley,” says the 63 year-old, who lives in Sanctuary Point.
But all that changed after working with Angela Barbagallo. She not only helped her in an aesthetic sense by encouraging her to wear colour and fitted clothes, but also helped her career.
“Before I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror but now I have the confidence to go out on dates. I know I don’t have to be size eight to look fabulous.”
Grace from Acacia Gardens booked in for a STYLE SESSION at Westfield Penrith
“Just a quick thank you for our styling session on Saturday. I had a great morning. Your advice has given me the confidence to reach out of my comfort zone and try different styles and colours. Tested one of the outfits on Saturday – it was a hit :-). I will certainly be spreading the word.”
Jennie from Kurrajong booked in for a STYLE SESSION
“Well let me just say as much as I dislike shopping I did have a great day. I am wearing my new sandals and have had so many people made comments on how I look. And they love the colour on me! Wooo hoo I’m feeling like I am 6″ tall today 🙂 I can’t thank you enough….. ”
“I loved the style consultation on Saturday afternoon. On Sunday I made a real effort to wear “Soft Summer” colours. And when I was out shopping in David Jones Tuggerah a sales assistant came up to me and complimented me on my colour choice in clothes! I told her I had had a consultation the day before. ”
Belinda from Penrith booked in for a STYLE SESSION
“Thanks for the email Angela, I had a terrific time and am enjoying the new clothes. It was a great experience and I think it is good to have an independent viewpoint. More importantly you really tuned in to my style and personality very quickly.
So I hope that I now have the confidence to buy less, better quality & co-ordinating pieces. I will certainly keep you in mind as I take the next steps of my style revolution journey!”
Rosemary’s Post Baby Confidence
When Rosemary Shapiro-Liu had her child at 46 her body changed dramatically. She had been a dancer for many years but post-baby her body changed to a more maternal, hourglass figure.
“My job requires to speak in front of large audiences, so I need to feel confident and comfortable with how my new body looks” says the Author and Coach.
“Angela gave me some fantastic guidance. She taught me that small tweaks can have a big impact on the way you look.
“I never realised the length on tops, can make a huge difference to an outfit. What I have learned has changed my life forever.”
Grace from Acacia Gardens booked in for a STYLE SESSION at Westfield Penrith
“Would highly recommend this experience. Angela’s feedback was honest and thoughtful whilst considering my desired outcomes and concerns for my new look.
My two hour session was conducted efficiently – no time wasting just down to business. I tried on a number of outfits in a short space of time – most look fabulous.
At the end of the session I walked away with a refreshed look and loads of confidence. Thanks Angela and Style Angel.”
Kylie from Mosman booked in for a STYLE SESSION
“I wanted to say a big ‘thank you’ to you for your help and advice yesterday at Diana Ferrari. My new clothes are great and I really enjoyed the experience. You have given me new ideas and great tips on styles, colours and fashion that I’m sure will be able to use again in the future.”
Claire from Kareela booked in for a STYLE SESSION
“Thank you, thank you, thank you! I really enjoyed the experience and you taught me a lot. Now I have a bit more courage now to go and try things on. Firstly looking at shape and colour more so than deciding straight off that I don’t like something when I see it on the hanger.
I love the clothes I have bought, and I will be back for shoes. I found your advice very good and sound, and I would not hesitate to recommend you to others.
And I think I tried on more clothes in the 2 hours than I have since I arrived in Australia 8 years ago! Thank you again! I hope you have a lovely weekend, and hope to see you soon.
Jenny booked in for a STYLE SESSION at Westfield Chatswood
This was great – I thought I had an idea of what suited me – it turns out I was on the right track!! Angela really made me feel special and helped me to narrow my ideas on what works and what colours are best. Very exciting and I felt very special walking around the shops with my own stylist!!!!
Anne-Marie from Lakemba booked in for a STYLE SESSION
“I wanted to say THANK YOU for the most wonderful, exciting and learning shopping experience I have ever had. I can’t stop telling everyone about it.
EVERYONE has noticed, and whilst I was a bit nervous the first day I walked into the office, I held my head high and just pretended everything was normal. One of my co-workers commented on Monday said I looked very professional
And two days into the office, I was stopped as I walked in the door by the girls and questioned; “Have you had a make-over, my god you look great”!!
There you go, you make me feel like a beautiful woman. Thank you again, it was such a special day.”
Laura from Oyster Bay booked in for a STYLE SESSION
“I really loved our session on Saturday! I feel like I learnt so much and my eyes have been completely opened to what I should and shouldn’t wear! And I guess now it will be a case of putting it into practice over the coming months and years.
My mum and I would also love to do another session when summer comes in, to get your opinion on summer clothes. Then I’ll be all kitted out!
Afterwards, I went home on Saturday and emptied my wardrobe and split it into what I should get rid of, what I should keep until I can replace it, and what I should keep longer term. And I also ordered everything according to colour and style so I’m definitely more organised!
Certainly, I feel like a new person! So thanks again for your help, and I’ll be in touch in a few months for some summer help!”
Michaela booked in for a STYLE SESSION
“I’ve been raving about you, and looks like a couple of girls from work might be contacting you soon! I’m thinking that now you’ve shown me what looks good, I really need to clear out my wardrobe and start again. Thanks again, you have really made a huge difference in what I wear and my confidence! People have noticed.”
Jodie booked in for a STYLE SESSION
“Thank you for the great experience, it has definitely given me a new perspective on what and how to wear things. I am now looking at my clothes in a new way and realise that I have many pants that need adjusting as I have been wearing them too big. So I’m off to the alteration place! Take care and thanks again.”
Belinda booked in for a STYLE SESSION
“Thanks for the email Angela, I had a terrific time and I am enjoying the new clothes. You really tuned in to my style and personality very quickly.

Lyn booked in for a STYLE SESSION

I think that suit has well and truly paid for itself.”

The other dress that I ordered was waiting for me at home and fits perfectly and I can’t wait to start wearing the dresses at work next week – which one will I wear first?! Thanks once again for a fantastic morning and I’ll certainly be in touch if I have any questions. I’ve also recommended you to some people that I met at the awards dinner on Thursday night.”

And I’m also looking over my wardrobe with a more discerning eye and trying to incorporate everything you told me. Right now, I’m dressing more for my shape and it feels better already.”
Andrew from Ashfield received a 3 hour Personal Shopping Experience for Men from his Wife Elaine which took place at David Jones in Sydney CBD
“We were impressed by your efficiency, professionalism and directed approach. It allowed for a critical review of Andrew’s existing wardrobe and an opportunity to learn about available styles and brands which would suit and compliment his looks.
An important part of the process was learning to have the confidence to attempt different looks and styles as well as understand what properly fitting clothes should be.
And since the session Andrew has worn with pleasure both the informal and informal clothing items and in addition we took our new-found knowledge to the sales with good results. We would have no hesitation in recommending Style Angel to our colleagues as a positive experience!”
Lisa booked in for a STYLE SESSION
“I would like to say thank you to Angela.
Amazingly, I was treated like gold while I was there and it was an invaluable experience in terms of knowing what colours to wear and what styles suit me best. And I have received several compliments already and have even made some more purchases, feeling confident in knowing what to look for when shopping for clothes.
And my husband is happy that I have chosen to step outside of my traditional ‘black’ wardrobe! My autumn/winter wardrobe is sorted out and I feel that shopping experiences from now on will be much more pleasant and pain free.”
Christie from Penrith booked in for a STYLE SESSION
“Fantastic experience. And the info that was left with me regarding things that suit my face shape and body type will be a great bible for future purchases and decisions.”
Samantha from Foster booked in for a STYLE SESSION
“I had a great time and am very happy with my new suit! Feels and looks great. I have talked to a few friends and a couple are very interested in coming next time. I suggested that we should do it again in the next season perhaps.”
Amanda from Botany booked in for a Wardrobe Styling which took place at her home in Botany
“Angela was great, she had some great advise and loved every minute of my two hours with her. highly recommend it!”
Cindy from Port Macquarie booked in for the Wardrobe Styling and a Style Session
“WOW what an amazing experience!!! I was anxious to start with and had many concerns about spending the money, was it over indulgent, and would Angela ‘get my style/non style’, but I can honestly say its the best investment I have made in a long time.
During the Wardrobe Styling, Angela helped me to make the hard decisions about what should stay and what should go or was worth altering. The shelves were definitely a little bare so that week I booked Angela for a shopping trip.
Not only did I come away with some amazing outfits/pieces I also learnt so much about how to shop. Angela was also amazing with pairing things back to what she knew was in my wardrobe at home.
Shopping has been my arch nemesis for many years but since our trip I have been shopping successfully on my own and even had 2 girlfriends ask me to come and help them, which of course I used Angela’s tips and tricks.
Thanks to Angela’s brilliance I now feel much more relaxed about what to wear and way more confident when I walk out the door. And I have to say others have definitely noticed the difference.
I really cant believe Im now excited at the idea of shopping – Thank you so much Angela you really are a true Style Angel…”
Barbara from Coorangbong received a Christmas Gift Voucher for a STYLE SESSION and a COLOUR CONSULTATION
“With my wardrobe, I always felt like there were some gems in there but lost among a whole lot of clothes that do not fit or do not suit or were on sale and still have tags on. I was really looking forward to getting some direction about what to shop for, colours that suited me and to put an end to me buying items that look great on the hanger but unflattering on me.
The whole shopping experience was fantastic, I could see the difference that wearing the right colours for my fair skin tone was making to my overall appearance. We also found a pair of Mavi jeans that made me visually loose 2 kilos instantly! People comment every time I wear an item we bought together. Could not be happier!”
Alexandra from Mosman booked in for a Wardrobe Styling
“From the first phone call confirming my gift voucher had been processed, I felt that you were extremely professional and efficient. You went to work quickly, without much small talk in order to maximise the 2 hour wardrobe consultation. You did not make suggestions that would result in spending more money, but rather helped me “shop in my own closet” and created new combinations or showed me how to update items that I already had.
And your follow up was amazing in terms of answering lingering questions and sending a ‘thank you’ right away. I have already purchased a gift voucher for my husband to be used as a Christmas present. I would be happy to recommend you to anyone I know interested in learning more about how to look better.”
Christie from Penrith booked in for a STYLE SESSION which took place at Westfield Penrith Plaza
“Fantastic experience – and the info that was left with me regarding things that suit my face shape and body type will be a great bible for future purchases and decisions.”
Belinda from Castle Hill booked in for a Style Session with friend Lisa who flew down from Caboolture QLD
“Angela was very professional in all her dealings with me; leading up to the meeting, during the experience and after. And it was a great day – I learnt so much and had a great deal of fun!”
Lisa from Glenmore Park booked in for a STYLE SESSION AND a WARDROBE STYLING
“I had a great time with you the other Saturday. It was interesting when you went through my wardrobe and explained the sort of styles I should be wearing. And I could see where I had gone wrong with my tops and shirts and where I had gotten it right.
It was so much fun going shopping and trying on things that actually looked good and fitted properly. I have not enjoyed shopping like that for a long time. I was so happy with everything I purchased and my husband was delighted with them as well. He said that he could see how happy I looked and when I tried them all on. And he just kept saying how they all make me slimmer and how good the colours were.
Consequently, I have now worn most of my new work clothes to work and have had plenty of comments about how nice I look and I feel so much more confident. So much so, I do not feel like I have to hide under big tops anymore.
And I enjoyed the day so much and learnt a lot about what styles and colours to look for and I’ve recommended you to some of my friends.”
Sue from Guildford booked a Style and Colour Workshop and a Wardrobe Styling.
“I found the experience a lot of fun. We came as a group my best friend, sister and daughters to share the experience. I found that in general you already instinctively go towards the colours that suit you but would not have the range I found in the colour portfolio and personally I had no idea how to put them together for the best effect.
The wardrobe styling allowed me to throw out the things that really I did not wear. Now I can look around for better colours and shapes to fill the void. Angela, you know how to make people feel at ease and comfortable even though some of our topics, like problem areas, may be sensitive to some of us.
And it was reaffirming to hear what I already knew, interesting to hear new ways to look at things, tips to disguise bits, and a really fun enlightening time.”
Joanne from Roseville received a Wardrobe Styling and Style Session which took place at her home and Westfield Chatswood.
“Angela- you have done wonders to my wardrobe in just 2 hours! It was great going through my clothes with you, and deciding what worked and what did not.
And I never thought I would have so much fun shopping, let alone be so productive in only 3 hours. But I now have the knowledge of the styles and colours that suit me, so my future shopping experiences will be enjoyable and more efficient. And I love all the clothes and accessories we bought together and have already started wearing them.
Today I feel more confident walking down the street, knowing that I look good. Thank you so much. I will be recommending you to friends!”
Natalie from Cremorne received a STYLE SESSION which took place Chatswood Chase
“I want to say that the 2 hour shopping experience I had with you recently was fantastic! You were very professional,honest, knowledgeable and very helpful in getting me some new pieces for my wardrobe.
We actually found everything on my list and a pair of shoes too so thank you again and I have worn all of them already!”
Stephen from Lane Cove booked a Wardrobe Organisation and a STYLE SESSION
“Angela, thanks for your great style consulting and personal shopping assistance. Before working with you, I found I was concerned with how I looked and I did not have much sense of what clothes worked together, so I stayed with basics I knew, which were frankly a bit boring.
Now, I feel much prouder and more confident of how I look and I get compliments on my dress and appearance I never used to get before. Yesterday, I met a woman I have not seen for several months and the first thing she said was “Wow, you look fantastic!”.
I have clothes that really fit me well and can be business elegant or casual, funky and fun. I feel in style and younger looking, which is a great thing.
And with your guidance, I have a whole new appreciation for dressing in style and I am much more conscious of what outfits work well for business, casual or fun outings.
Finally, I really appreciated how easy it was to work with you and your professionalism at all times. I especially appreciate the great deals we got when we went shopping at Herringbone!”
Tanya from Turramurra won a STYLE SESSION which took place at Chatswood Chase.
“Thanks a million for the two hour styling session. Such a great prize! I have been telling all my friends about it. I came away from the session armed with information, and feeling confident about buying clothes and accessories.”
Sharon from Mosman booked in for a Wardrobe Styling and a STYLE SESSION which took place in Sydney City Centre
“You went through the whole of my wardrobe and my ‘to throw away pieces’ and revived several of them. And you explained in detail about how getting the colour right goes along way to wearing the right clothes for you.
It was good to find that I was spot on with some of my wardrobe and then you showed me how to put outfits together which I would have never dreamed of. Talk about “shopping in your own wardrobe”, it is so true!!
I then decided to replace some of my items with good key pieces so again enlisted your help. You was right on the mark knowing which shops would suit me in both cut and colour. And I learnt plenty about shopping which I can use in the future.
And we managed to gain the majority of the items and a bonus of 3 pairs of shoes which all fitted and are great additions to my wardrobe! You made it all so easy! We looked at clothes I wouldn’t have even thought of picking up (love my purple shirt dress!!).
You remembered what was in my wardrobe and how I can mix and match them all. I not only learnt a huge amount through our time together, I have some great clothes which I am now enjoying wearing. Thank you so much Angela.”
Philippa from Kingston ACT booked in for a STYLE SESSION which took place in Sydney City Centre.
“I really enjoyed the shopping experience with you – it was great to learn about colours in particular and I have been enjoying my purchases. I think the session built confidence in my ability to determine what clothes suit me well. The black dress is something I am really looking forward to wearing when it gets a little warmer.”
Lisa from Croydon booked in for a STYLE SESSION given to her by her Husband which took place at Westfield Parramatta.
“I wish I had have known about Angela sooner! I bought more clothes in 2 hours that suited my colouring, my shape and my personality than I had managed to buy over my entire lifetime.
Angela has a real knack at knowing what clothes will look great and feel comfortable. I no longer have to face my wardrobe each morning wondering what on earth I will wear…
And I came away with an entire wardrobe of clothes, shoes and accessories that feel amazing. Together with an idea of what type of clothes suit my colouring and shape. And I have the confidence to try something different..all in 2 hours of shopping!
Thanks Angela, now when I go out I dress like a confident and feminine young mother as opposed to an 18 year old tomboy and it feels fantastic! I hope to see you again in the summer!”
“I totally enjoyed this experienced. Angela is extremely helpful, with obvious years of experience and expertise.”
“This experience is useful to anyone, whether you have no idea what your personal style is or just require some extra tips and confirmation that you’re on the right track!”
“It was like having a friend come along with you shopping telling you honestly what looked good and what didn’t. She wasn’t pushy in making me choose items that I didn’t like, she was taking into consideration my own style, my likes and dislikes. I ended up buying 6 different items that I am very happy with.”
“Angela knows her business that’s for sure! In 2 hours we only visited 2 shops but bought everything to suit me, in my colours and styles – it was fantastic.”
“My usual 2 hour shopping experience leaves me frustrated and with probably if I’m lucky 2 or 3 pieces. However we managed to kit me out taking into account my wardrobe back at home. I can’t wait to wear all my new clothes and thank Angela for the excellent advice!”
