Style Sucks? Feel Awkward In Your Clothes? Hate Everything In Your Closet? I've Got Your Back!

You can 100% look great without having to spend a ton of money on fancy clothes, losing weight, or getting rid of everything in your closet.



You wear the same handful of outfits over and over again. You’ve got a few looks that look great, so you just reach for those same pieces in your closet, day after day. 

You feel self-conscious when you walk into a room, because of the way you look. 

You’re in a vicious cycle of closet cleansing. You frequently purge your closet, only to fill it up again with clothing you end up hating after you’ve worn it once. 

You get frustrated with shopping because you feel like you can never find clothes that fit and look great on you.

You’re scared of taking fashion risks or dressing outside your comfort zone, because you feel like you’ll be ridiculed or look like you’re trying too hard.


You’re a total rock star in your professional and personal already know that. But what you might not know is that developing a signature style (a style that reflects who you truly are) can actually create some revolutionary changes in your life.

Imagine how incredible it would feel if you could

Get compliments on your appearance every day, even if you can’t remember the last time someone said, “Great outfit!”

Walk into every room with a swagger, because you know your wardrobe expresses your very best self to the world. 

Know exactly how to dress your body and find clothes that flatter you, so you’ll wake up every morning knowing you absolutely love every item in your closet.

Have the confidence to go for that pay raise, promotion, or other goal you’ve been thinking about for years. Yes, that’s how much of a difference your style can make!

Change your look dramatically (or just look more polished) without having to lose weight or spend a lot of time shopping. 

Always be the most polished, best-dressed person in the room.

And the good news is that you can get these results without spending a ton of money

...and without having to hire a personal stylist to do all your shopping for you. Get Help and Support From a Personal Stylist – at a Fraction of the Price.


Hi, I’m Lauren Messiah, and I’ve been a professional stylist over a decade.

I started my styling career in Hollywood, where I styled stars and icons like Beverly Johnson, Kendall Jenner, Keke Palmer, and Krysten Ritter. I also worked with musicians from American Idol and models from America’s Next Top Model.

I spent years working on music video sets, styling ads campaigns (like NYX cosmetics, and Jenna Hipp for Costco), and putting looks together for magazine editorials.


But as glamorous as the Hollywood styling life was, it wasn’t for me. In 2009, I ditched the stars and started my Personal Styling business. 

Now I get to transform television executives, writers, producers, entrepreneurs, mothers, and wives – women just like you – every day. Shortly after I started offering personal stylist services, and working with real women one on one, I started getting a flood of inquiries from other women who needed my help.




These women wanted to hire me to help them purge their closets and find clothes that fit, but they either couldn’t afford to pay my fees for one-on-one styling (which are around $10,000), or couldn’t get to Los Angeles to work with me.

That’s when a light bulb went off in my head. I knew exactly what I needed to do.

I realized I had to take the styling formula I’d perfected with hundreds of my one-on-one clients, and turn it into an accessible online course that women just like you could use to build their own signature styles.

Now I’m delighted to be able to launch Personal Style University to the public, and put these proven style techniques directly into your hands.  

The 3 Things You Probably Believe About Style That Are Totally Wrong

“My appearance (including my clothes) shouldn’t matter. I want people to like me for my brilliant brain and my smart personality – not how I look on the outside.” 

Truth: This is the part where I give you a little tough love. 

Here’s the harsh truth: People are judging you by what you wear. That’s what people do. 

The best way to approach style is to just accept that, and decide what changes you’re going to make now. What message are you sending with your clothes? Are you happy with that message? With your professional attire, are you sending a message that says “I’m powerful, competent, and professional?” What about the clothes you wear during your personal time? 

If the message you’re expressing with your clothes doesn’t line up with how you feel in your head, it really does matter – and things will start to shift radically for you if we can get your outside look to line with your inner persona.

“You need a huge budget to buy stylish clothes. If I’m on a budget, I’m just out of luck.”

Truth: You don’t need to spend a lot of money to have great style. My favorite jeans are from Target (yes, really!). 

When I work with my clients, I always give them three options when it comes to budget:

• Babe on a Budget
• High/Low Mix
• Give Me the Good Stuff!

It is absolutely possible to find incredible clothes, accessories, and shoes at ANY price point – and I can help you do it!

I also want you to remember that right now you’re wasting a lot of time on unfocused shopping trips, and you’re buying a ton clothes that don’t fit – so investing in the right looks can actually save you money in the long run!

Myth #3
“The only way to upgrade my wardrobe and find my personal style is to hire a personal stylist to go shopping with me.”

Truth: I’ll be the first to admit it – it’s really helpful to have a personal stylist!

But that can get really expensive (my personal stylist packages currently start at $10,000) and you may not have access to a personal stylist in your town or city. 

The great news is that you can get access to all the information, resources, and support you need without breaking the bank – and that’s exactly why I launched Personal Style University.

If you’ve ever wanted to hire a personal stylist, Personal Style University is the next best thing.

The Real Secrets to Finding  a Style That Works for You


Secret #1  You Need to Focus on Where You’re Trying to Go.

There’s actually a deeper purpose to developing your personal style – it’s not just about throwing something on in the morning and looking cute. When I’m working my clients, the first questions I ask them are, “What are your goals? What are the biggest things you’d like to accomplish over the next few years?”

Once you know where you’d like to go (getting that promotion, finding love, increasing your income, making a big move, etc.) then you can design your style to help you reach those goals. And yes, this transformational process can really help you reach those big goals..I swear, sometimes it feels like it’s magic!

Recently, one of my clients just told me that when she upgraded her wardrobe and started wearing clothes that reflected her real personality, she tripled her income. Another one told me she got a promotion. And that’s not uncommon – I hear results like this every week!

So instead of purging your closet (again) and going shopping when you don’t know what you’re looking for (again), take a breath and ask yourself, “What do I really want from my life?” Then work backward from that vision, to create the personal style that will help you reach that goal.

Secret #2  When It Comes to Style, You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know.

Women get really frustrated with themselves when they don’t know how to dress….but they don’t teach us this stuff in school! We don’t grow up knowing the different style types, and how to find clothes that fit. Most women are just winging it when they go shopping, and getting aggravated with themselves when they’re not successful. But it’s hard to figure out how to do this stuff on your own!

This is where having the help of a personal stylist can really come in handy. A personal stylist (whether in-person, or virtual) can teach you, step by step, exactly how to pick out clothes that look great on you, so you’re the best-dressed person in every situation. Getting help from a personal stylist isn’t embarrassing. Tapping into someone who knows more than you in a specific area is smart. Heck, it’s genius!

But you need to learn from someone who actually has experience as a stylist, not some random blogger or entrepreneur who just announced yesterday that she’s offering personal stylist services. You need to learn from someone who’s been in the trenches, who knows the art AND the science of looking great.

I’ve been styling celebrities and women just like you for many years, and big brand companies (like Bloomingdale’s) trust me to educate their employees on how to style their customers! That’s right – I actually train other stylists on how to help their clients. I’m confident that I can teach you how to develop a personal style that will make you excited to get dressed every day – and you can learn how to do it virtually, right from your couch or office!

Personal Style University is the step-by-step virtual styling program that shows you how to take style into your own hands – with the help and support of an experienced personal stylist.

In this program, I will walk you through my proven step-by-step system for finding your personal style, detoxing your closet, building a wardrobe that fits your goals and lifestyle, making the most of your shopping budget, and choosing items that make you look your very best.

Here’s How Personal Style University Works:

As soon as you join the course, you’ll get a series of bite-sized video lessons, downloadable worksheets, and other resources to help you develop your signature style.

You get lifetime access to all the materials, so you’ll never fall behind or get overwhelmed. You can go through the program at a pace that works for you.

You’ll get the exact strategies I’ve used to help hundreds of women transform their lives by finding their own personal style.

“Now I receive countless compliments on how good I look from loved ones, coworkers and even strangers. This hardly EVER happened to me in the past. My confidence is through the roof and still climbing. Thanks, Personal Style University!” – J. Moody


When you join Personal Style University, you’ll get access to free, unlimited updates to all of the course materials. I do surprise updates and add special bonuses to the course all the time, and you’ll get all that new info every time I refresh the program materials.

These updates come in handy, because a lot of Personal Style University members end up going through the course again and again, changing their style again as their circumstances change. 

If your life is different one year from now, your style may need to shift again – and because you’ll get lifetime access (and free updates) to the course, you can transform as many times as you want.

Check out what this Personal Style University Member recently shared in our online community:

“I think I am going to go through the PSU process again for 2018. Not just because it is a new year, but I’m realizing the style I was attracted to doesn’t necessarily reflect the vibe I have...”

Here’s What You’ll Learn in
Personal Style University

Clearing Your Style Past

Before we get started with crafting your new sense of style, we need to set up the proper foundation. That means we need to clean out your “style past.” In this module, you will:

  • Learn how to clean out your closet by getting rid of stuff that doesn’t fit, garments that are damaged, and sentimental pieces that no longer serve you. I promise that you won’t need to toss everything you own – you’ll also figure out what’s working (and what to keep!) in your closet.
  • Banish the stories and roadblocks in your mind that hold you back from living life to the fullest, and create the right mindset for developing your own personal style. 
  • Create a clear shopping list of things you need to purchase, including timeless basics that can be mixed and matched easily.

Developing Your Sense of Style

After removing your proverbial “skeletons in the closet” in the first module….now it’s time to start developing your brand new, totally personal sense of style. In this module, you will:

  • Discover who you truly are, and what style types appeal to you, so you’re not blindly following a celebrity’s style or trusting a salesperson to pick out stuff for you when you’re shopping. 
  • Learn how to find the style icons that will continually inspire you. Figuring out which women inspire you will make it a lot easier to get dressed in the morning!
  • Creating your “Style Roadmap” that outlines your new sense of style and acts as a roadmap when you’re creating new looks. 
  • Find out how to make tools like blogs, Pinterest, Instagram, style icons, and magazines work for you – not against you. 

Shopping That Doesn’t Suck

99% of my clients HATE shopping, and I’ll bet it’s not your favorite thing in the world, either. If you loathe shopping, this module will be a game-changer for you. You will learn:

  • How to shop like a stylist, and make your shopping trips quick, easy, and efficient. 
  • Understand how to find clothes that actually fit you, and end dressing room frustration forever. You’ll finally be able to stop saying, “Nothing ever fits me!”
  • Understand why it’s okay to invest in your style, and learn when to save (and when to splurge) on your wardrobe. 
  • No longer get sidetracked by the pretty things you see online (or in a store window) because you’ll understand exactly what works for you.

How to Put an Outfit Together

If you find yourself saying “I have nothing to wear!” when you’re standing in front of a closet full of clothes, this module is for you. The secret is knowing how to put things together. In this module, you will:

  • Learn how to choose the perfect outfit from your closet in 5 minutes flat. My 26 Easy Outfit Formulas will make getting dressed a fun (and easy) experience. 
  • Figure out what goes with what – with total confidence, every time. In this module’s special bonus videos, you’ll get specific advice on how to style basics like a classic blazer, jeans and a t-shirt, a little black dress, and a suit. 
  • Stop getting stumping by jewelry and accessories, and start working them into your wardrobe daily. You’ll get special downloads that teach you how to tie a scarf, choose a necklace, and more!
  • Create a “style uniform” that helps define who you are as a person. Having a style uniform makes getting dressed a breeze every morning!

Maintaining Your New Look

You’ve done the hard work, and have a brand new sense of style that is personal to you. Now what? Just like diet and exercise, the work doesn’t end once you get your desired results – upkeep and maintenance are essential. In this module, you will:

  • Learn how to care for your garments, so they’ll last a long time and keep you looking great. You’ll get a free downloadable resource guide that lists all the tools you should keep in your closet to keep your wardrobe in order.
  • Keep your look fresh and your style up to date from season to season, without having to reinvent the wheel every few months. Slipping back into bad habits is no longer an option!
  • Find out what you should expect to pay for alterations, with our Alterations Pricing Guide.
  • Find out how to make your style evolve with you as you change and grow. You’ll get a clear action plan for shifting your style as your life evolves.

“You have improved my quality of life in so many ways. I CAN’T EVEN!! Just to find you and PSU and to learn that everyday “normal” people can have access to all that you offer….it’s not just a game changer, it has truly been LIFE CHANGING!”  – Charity McDowell

Want to know what people ask in the group, and how I answer them? Here are a few examples:

“Super proud of how I made this sweater look attractive for work! At first I had it half tucked with a statement necklace and I felt like something wasn’t quite right. Then I remembered what Lauren Messiah mentioned in a recent video AND since I had my waist cinching belt from the Ultimate Wardrobe Checklist, I was able to create a look that I felt great in...Would a necklace have been too much?”

“Well the Tibi jacket was a fail but I just got my Rag & Bone boots and black tee. Wow wow wow. I will post pictures tomorrow. These are so basic, so well made, so comfortable, so flattering. The Style gods have smiled upon me. Thank you Lauren Messiah for leading me in this direction. Still need to find a good jacket The Tibi was wrong...I don’t think plaids are my thing (unless maybe they are a very large and graphic). But I just want to try more Rag & Bone stuff now.”

Here’s what Personal Style University members say about our Facebook Community:

“One of the best parts of Personal Style University is the private Facebook, where I’m able to interact with Lauren and the other PSU members directly, to get their opinions or new ideas on what to wear or how to combine new purchases.”

“...One of my favorite aspects of the course is the private Facebook group. I can post questions to other members and get style tips, critiques, advice on where to buy items, and much more.

“Every once in a while (like today), I feel like a million bucks. I never felt that way before Personal Style University. Thank you.” – Credence

Are sick and tired of standing in front of the closet , thinking, “I have absolutely nothing to wear.”

Want to look better in every aspect of your life, but would prefer to spend time on your career and your loved ones, rather than agonizing over what to wear. 

Are completely fed up with the ridiculous game of trying, failing, and wasting money while attempting to look more polished. 

Recognize the dangers of staying stuck, but haven’t updated your wardrobe to reflect your accomplishments at this point in your life, and you’re not sure exactly how to get started with that process. 

Feel like there is a missing link standing between you and great style – and you can’t figure out what it is.

Other Common Questions About Personal Style University


“I am completely clueless when it comes to style. Is this a good place to start?”

Absolutely! I created this course with you in mind. Style isn’t a subject that is taught in school, and your parents certainly didn’t sit you down to have a “talk” about fashion. Couple that with all of the misinformation and “inspiration” that is clearly geared towards the fashion community, and even women who think they are “in the know” feel clueless. So yes, consider this the home for the fashion clueless. I will welcome you with open arms!


“Has it really come to this? I have to take a course to learn how to dress? What will people think?”

When I dreamed up this course years ago, this was the #1 objection that held me back. Does anyone want to take a class to learn how to dress? Would they be too embarrassed to pull the trigger? That fear helped propel me to build a course that doesn’t feel like a course - it’s more like sitting down with your stylish best friend who is only there to help, not judge, and

Just remember this: Self-improvement isn’t embarrassing. Making your life better is a personal decision, and if someone else has an opinion on’s their problem! As I always say, “Do you!”


“I’m a little afraid to spend the money for this course, and I have a small clothing budget, so I’m wondering if I’ll be able to find inexpensive clothes. What do you think?”

I always find spending money on things you need is harder than spending on things you want. Do you need this course? Well, if you’ve made it this far into the page, you probably do. You are here because you are stuck, and are looking for a solution. Personal Style University is the solution, and it is life changing. I don’t use the term “life-changing” lightly, either. I have watched my clients and students’ lives change as they go through this program. How much is improving your life worth? If you ask me, you can’t afford not to do it. If parting with a large chunk of money is still a hard pill to swallow, I offer an easy payment plan which allows you to pay for Personal Style University over the course of a year. You get access to all of the material right now too.


Nothing ever fits me. Won’t I be disappointed when I reach the shopping portion of the class? 

Every single of my clients has uttered the words, “Nothing ever fits me.” Whether they are a size 2 or a size 22, fit seems to be the main issue. 

Personal Style University will help you redefine what fits, and I’ll give you my stylist secrets for finding (or achieving) the perfect fit every time. You’ll also have online access to me and the rest of the PSU community through the Facebook group, and we can help you make sound decisions while you shop. It’s like having me in your pocket – how cool is that?


“I don’t have time to do an online course right now.
What should I do?”

I get it. You’re busy. All of my students are high-achieving rock stars, and many of them feel tentative about buying an online course that they’ll need to dedicate time to. You get the course all at once, but the entire thing is self-paced. You’ll never fall behind. Here’s the thing, though: Personal Style University only opens periodically, so if you’re interested in the program, I’d advise you to go ahead and buy it now, and go through the course when you have time. Here’s a little hint from some of our previous students: You can treat this course as a form of self-care! Some of our previous students says that she’s replaced her Netflix habits with watching Personal Style University videos in the evenings. It makes her feel better than mindlessly binging on Breaking Bad every night.


“How long will this course take?”

Most of my A-students finish the entire course (including the action steps) in 30 days. Need longer to finish the program? Take all the time in the world! You have lifetime access to this course, so work at a pace that fits with your schedule and lifestyle. This course is meant to be fun, so please don’t stress yourself out by racing towards the finish line.


“Do you work with clients 1-on-1, too?”

Not anymore! After spending over a decade working with clients, my days of styling 1-on-1 are officially over. Why? Because I know that styling stunning outfits is a skill everyone can possess. I am committed to dedicating my time and energy to teach women this skill.


“I don't use Facebook can I still participate?

100% yes! While having access to the Facebook group is nice, it is NOT a must for this program. The live videos I record in the Facebook group will be stored inside the PSU platform for your viewing pleasure. No FOMO (fear of missing out) because I've got you covered!


“I want to become a personal stylist. Should I take this course?”

Yes and no If you're an aspiring stylist this course can DEFINITELY be useful! In Personal Style University, I’ll walk you through the step-by-step system I’ve used to style hundreds of clients. You can use this information to take your business to the next level when you’re working with your own clients. If you are more interested in the business aspects of styling then  check out my fashion school, School of Style.
