Where my story and your story meet!

So, here's the deal

LivStyled is the product of a girl just trying to do her thing and believing she’s got what it takes to get the job done well. I’m quite certain I was born with the drive to get in on the endlessly creative and  inspiring fashion industry in a way that I could make my own! I’ve always felt the most alive when the topic of fashion came up, even more so when it pertained to an individuals personal style or editorial styling. So, I made the choice to pursue an education in fashion business and (a husband, 3 kids and a move across the country later) here I am with a business all of my own that I designed with YOU in mind!

Lets start with the mother of all wardrobe questions; Do you ever glaze over while staring into your closet?! (Maybe not the mother of ’em but hey, it’s a pretty good one!) I mean c’mon, who hasn’t?! There’s plenty to choose from but nothing to wear. When I’m choosing an outfit for the day I want to put it on and feel like a boss! I want to look in the mirror and see the reflection of a secure, confident me! Reality is that it’s more common to see the reflection of a worn out, sleepy me and I have a feeling I’m not the only one who has seen that reflection! You’re not alone and the good news is, I can help! Below is a contact form that you can fill out and send my way to get the party started, I can’t wait to hear from you!

Fashion School

I fell further in love with all things fashion when I made the move to California and fashion school quickly made it’s way to the top of my priority list So, off I went! I Graduated with a Fashion Business degree and the dream of working as a stylist on many different levels within the fashion industry.

Party of five

Soon after I started fashion school I got married and two months later found out we were expecting our first babe! (oops!) I Worked hard to finish school before his arrival and thankfully, was a success! Over the next 8 years we welcomed two more kiddos into our family and became a family of five!

Monroe Center Street - Grand Rapids, MI


In 2014 we started our 3 day road trip adventure from sunny San Diego to our new home in the Great Lakes State where we were greeted with sparklers and smiling faces from our Michigan family. We bought our first house and quickly started to settle into our new home in Grand Rapids. Less than two years later I decided it was time to start chasing the dream of becoming a fashion stylist!

Here's what I can do for you!


Closet Cleanse

Do you stand in front of your closet and feel overwhelmed by the vast selection of clothes you see, yet you feel like you have nothing to wear?! We’ve all been there, sister! The Closet Cleanse includes the following to help you feel refreshed and excited about your wardrobe:
  • Purge. You have to clean out the old to make room for the new! Item by item we clean out your closet to prepare for your style facelift.
  • Take Stock. We create a list of items to be replaced and new pieces that need to be added.
  • Style Map. I follow up with photos of new outfits for you to feel inspired by! This is designed to offer you visual examples to have at your fingertips whenever you need some fashion inspiration!

Now your closet is refreshed and ready to be expanded with new pieces to accommodate your existing selection and offer you fresh style! So, shall we embark on this adventure?! Out with the old (but only some of it!) and in with the new!

Personal Shopping

You choose how much you’d like to spend on the wardrobe portion of your experience, and I’ll take care of the rest! Enjoy the ease and convenience of showing up to the store with full outfits already pre-selected specifically for you or I will do all of the shopping for you and have a fit session all ready to go at the location of your choice. If there’s a limited selection of stores where you are located, no problem! Online shopping is as convenient as ever and who doesn’t love getting packages in the mail!? Below is a little more about personal shopping!


There is so much flexibility when it comes to personal shopping! Limited budget? No problem! I will search far and wide at local boutiques, discount and outlet stores to find you the best options without breaking the bank.

Do we need to work on balancing your wardrobe by adding some higher quality staples with some splashes of statement pieces? Mixing high-end pieces with affordable items is a look that is embraced by some of the most stylish women in the world! Savvy shopping is always a must, but saying no to the perfect item because of the price is simply not an option.

Lets be honest, who doesn’t jump at the chance to fill their wardrobe with the absolute best the fashion world has to offer?! You appreciate top quality, flawless design and wearing the world’s best fashion designer pieces and together we can hand pick the ones that were made for you!  

Personal Styling

Whether you’re a professional needing to break out of a suit rut, a new mom with a changing body, a TV personality or a professional athlete, we all suffer from running out of options in our wardrobe. Sometimes all it takes is a fresh set of eyes to see the potential in your closet and keep you feeling good about your everyday look!

Event Styling

Between weddings, birthday bashes, graduation events, business outings, vacations and simply a night out on the town, it seems our wardrobe options get fewer and fewer! Lose the stress of wearing the same gussied-up-get-up to all of your events and plan ahead before the busy season strikes! Having a handful of ready-to-go special occasion outfits helps to keep the magic alive!

(Last minute shopping and styling is available for events. We all know how it feels when the panic sets in that you have nothing you feel like a celebrity in!)

*For business or event related Inquires regarding editorial styling, photo shoots or events, please contact me through the contact form.

Sometimes I've got something to say.

The amount of snow that has fallen in the last 12 hours in GR is ummm, no bueno. Beautiful? Absolutely! Cozy? I mean it’s like magic when you’re inside looking out! But I think half of this would have been just as lovely, sky… Thanks a lot. I think it’s officially time to say it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas with all of this sparkling, white ‘tow’ – as my 3 year old would say. Maybe we should start wearing our ‘glubs’, yeah probably a good idea.

You know when you’re in a season of growth and moments of feeling overwhelmed sneak up & you’re not sure you have the capacity to grow anymore? I found myself in one of those moments recently, an extended one, actually… I hate when they do that! When they seem to linger for longer than they’re welcome. But it’s also in those moments, those seasons, that the need for inward growth becomes greater.
This season has been challenging! It’s amazing what the Lord will speak when you really pour your heart out to Him & let Him get closer. I found myself in the middle of worship at @newchapel pouring my heart out with expectation; James 4:8 says that if we draw near to God, He will draw near to us. He spoke one simple thing to my heart that morning and it was then that I understood this season I’m in – it’s an opportunity. A chance to let the Lord work in me to increase my capacity, refresh my spirit and give new vision for my family & business! If a business needs to grow strategically you better believe the people behind them do too! I’m amazed again & again at the goodness of God and how intentionally He works in our lives. So I’m soaking up this season of nearness to Him and excited for the things to come! 📷 @kelseyhettinga .
