“A blend of empathy, intellect, and sharp curiosity, von Weise’s unflappable voice has the soothing effect of an NPR host—an antidote to the sometimes-grating and intimidating world of fashion.”
Stylist and personal shopper Lisa von Weise helps clients create the ultimate bespoke item—themselves.
Just as a life coach, through a process of elimination, helps you make your inner existence all the more unique, a dedicated stylist gives your outer self its own snowflake appeal. “Holistic personal shopper” Lisa von Weise knows this all too well. Her mission is to drown out the sartorial noise and provide her clients with a bespoke process that helps them discover what their own signature style truly is. Also: She finds good stuff.
After a quarter decade honing her styling skills as a senior contributing fashion editor at major women’s magazines like Vogue, Elle, Vanity Fair, and styling for A-list celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Natalie Portman (Bruce Springsteen was her first client), von Weise is intent on putting the “personal” back into “personal styling.”
This stylist will change your wardrobe—and the way you think about fashion.

It's essential to liberate your full, natural expression to reach your radiant potential. You can instantly tell when someone is in touch with their true voice and essential nature. When they enter the room, there is an electricity in the air. You feel touched, moved and inspired by them.
You might want to befriend them or partner with them or enroll in their next workshop. The sense of groundedness, confidence and clarity they exude encourages trust and a desire for connection. This happens because their outward appearance is literally an expression of their soul, a ready instrument for authenticity, powerfully magnetic and attractive.
I show busy, high-profile professionals struggling with time and clarity around their wardrobe how to be efficient, feel confident, and live authentically. I guide participants through experimentation and discussion in an environment safe for exploration. Expect wisdom, honesty, well-researched insight, engaging visuals and open dialogue to actively support your goal of excellence. Results include an amplified feeling of elevation, a burst of energy, and a keen awareness of enlarged possibilities. Very few realize what power sincerity carries, and individuality is something to which everyone aspires. I gladly share my knowledge, and vast experience at the top end of the market, of how to create a unique expression that will open doors for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
How will you help me develop my personal style?
I will present you with well-researched options that resonate with your energy and natural expression. We will combine the best elements of fashion and style with an independent spirit to define your aesthetic. We can never have enough focus on what is gorgeous in each of us; I will highlight your unique beauty and guide you to recognize your divine spark.
I care about sustainability. How can I best work with what I have?
Tailoring your well-made acquisitions is a favorite tactic to reinvent what you already own, which is less expensive and more sustainable than buying new. Targeting missing links with vintage, resale and upcycled finds will make your investment pieces sing and is the apex of sustainable fashion now. Also, buy less overall by thinking more deeply about it, so you will love it longer.
Do you have a set formula?
Each and everyone woman is a unique entity unto herself. There is no set formula out of respect for different body types, personalities, needs, goals and desires. Every element is honored to spark joy! My process is particular to each woman. Even models with similar measurements do not fit the same looks with the same energy. I learned that thoroughly during my many years in training as a sittings editor on fashion shoots with models and celebrities.
How can I perfect my daily uniform to create a signature?
The holy grail! We will visualize your future self and set intentions though conscious, thoughtful choices. We will respect your strengths and gifts, while inviting flexibility and open-mindedness, so that your uniform evolves with you.
What are my most important investment pieces?
Great investments impart freedom. They streamline your habits as the cornerstones of your routine. Together we will focus on priorities, carefully checking them off while building closet equity with a plan. Tailoring, organization, a sophisticated approach that works for you, and artful mixing for your body type — these are priceless tricks of the trade that I will teach you.
Why did you change from editorial stylist to personal stylist?
In magazines and retail, there is a subtle degree of manipulation in the name of marketing. It may be well intentioned, but it’s there. The switch to a private client base happened by chance, when I offered my services for a charity silent auction. I have an altruistic motivation to work purely on behalf of women and men without hype, to promote expansion and well-being. Personal styling is the perfect blend of high fashion meets healing arts.
Can you help with store discounts?
Discounts are a lovely benefit and do happen on a case by case basis, especially with advance orders. Making smart, targeted purchases is the key to managing your clothing budget and I will get you on a wise plan that will be easy to execute.
