Work with Kim M. Barfield

The way you show up matters

I help women to show up as their most amazing selves in person, and brands to show up at their most marketable online. How do I do that? By giving women easy wardrobe options and decreasing the time they spend wondering what the heck to wear; and by giving brands simple tips that will improve their social media strategy, better their online appearance and increase buy-in with their customers.

Personal Styling

Your appearance is a part of your personal brand, and tells the story of how you see yourself. Whether you're on the fast track in your corporate career, an entrepreneur, a stay-at-home mom, an artist, or a creative working to carve out your own niche, what you wear communicates who you are and what's important to you. I can help you to find your signature style, create a capsule wardrobe, fill in the blanks if you have some of the pieces but need to figure out how to refine them, or save you time if you know what you want, but don't have the time to shop for it. My goal is to help you develop a very distinct wardrobe that communicates who you are and makes you look amazing but, more importantly, makes you feel like your most amazing, confident and capable self! 

Content Creation

Every piece of content you create and publish for your brand should be a tiny piece of a cohesive string of messages that your customer can easily identify as a part of your story. From the content of your articles and blog posts, to your visual images and even your partnerships with varying influencers, you want your customers to be able to easily identify your company’s mission and values. I love helping companies to find that sweet spot between selling to and connecting with their audiences. 

Editorial & Copywriting

Savvy messaging and creative strategies can drive traffic to your website and help sell your products. You can use your website copy, product descriptions, individual and company bios, social media captions, blog posts and other targeted messaging to create an authentic connection with your audience. I can provide editorial solutions that make it easier.

kim m barfield client testimonials

you should look and feel like at your most amazing

My goal is always to help my clients develop a very distinct style--whether that's through clothing or content--that communicates who they are and makes them look and feel like amazing, polished, kick-butt professionals. Here, some of my current and former clients share the moments they felt just that!

what clients are saying

"My experience with Kim as a Personal Stylist was beyond my expectations. As a person who just puts on clothes, it wasn't until my business started to get a little traction that I thought hiring a Personal Stylist would be a necessary investment. Kim provided a closet consultation that allowed me to maximize the items in my closet so that I am able to save money 10x over. The benefit of her helping me determine where I can get the most wears per item and showing me how to style them was priceless. Not only was the experience useful, it was fun. Kim worked with me to pick an outfit, accessorize it, and she even made hair and make-up recommendations. Following the consultation, Kim provided detailed information on the items we discussed adding to my wardrobe and recommendations on where I could find those items. I highly recommend Kim for your personal styling needs. She is professional, has a great eye for what looks best, and makes you feel confident throughout the process."

- Zena T., personal styling client

 

"What I have always loved about Kim is her attention to detail. She notices things about textures, fabrics and proportions that I NEVER notice! She did a closet consult for me and helped me look at things that were collecting dust in the back of my closet in a new light. We also did a guided shopping trip. She gets me and knows what I like but also knows how to nudge me just enough to try different things. She has a gift for bridging the gap for people like me who know how we want to look, but need help executing it. I recommend her services to everyone I know."

- Gina H., personal styling client

 

"Yesterday I was fortunate enough to chance upon Ms. Jackson when doing frantic, last minute shopping for a special occasion later in the evening. Kim assembled not one but several outfits down to the shoes and lipstick. I walked out with shopping bags stuffed with coordinated clothes that I'll wear with confidence for work, play and future special occasions. Throughout our two or so hours together, she was imaginative, patient, organized and gracious. I'll add one more adjective for good measure: poised."

- former Nordstrom styling client

 

"I ordered a bunch of stuff about two weeks ago; I've worn every single item! LOVE LOVE LOVE the brown leather jacket and the black peplum top with the yellow flowers. I also ordered the black wrap top from Asos and I'm wearing that right now! My co-worker took notice of my new outfits and said I've been glowing. He's complimented me on my wardrobe lately and it's because I've been taking my dress and appearance more seriously. It all started when I purchased the items from my Lookbook. Thank you so much Kim!"

- Brandi M., personal styling client

 

"I was styled by Keaton Row stylist, Kim. Thanks to Kim I have the perfect 'go to' job interview outfit."

- Karen D., personal styling client

 

Kim helped to increase the social media presence for my newly created blog, Will Drink For Travel, while I was out of the country for 2 months. She successfully increased my Twitter following over 1000% in that short time. Kim interacted with other traveling industry professionals and pushed my blog content in a way that helped to increase my follower growth and presence significantly. In addition to increasing my Twitter following, Kim provided tips for a successful Twitter presence that I continue to implement to this day. I continuously work with Kim on the branding and the overall evolving look and feel of my blog because I trust her professional opinion. I highly recommend Kim for her social media savvy and knowledge of online branding.

- Ashlee T., social media client

 

As a consultant, Kim has provided me with invaluable advice on how to redesign my blog. She goes above and beyond to provide input (with personal experience) even after her services were requested. She has encouraged me and motivated me to continue to achieve my blogging goals.

- Lucy D., blog content + branding client
