Bridesmaid Style for Luzia M.

My appointment with Luzia involved dressing her as a bridesmaid for her friends’ wedding. I later took note of what she needed for her fall/winter wardrobe.

Luzia was wearing a beautiful blush pink gown and was looking to accessorize the dress. I encouraged her to wear the jewelry she wore for her wedding a year earlier. We settled on a pair of earrings and a bracelet. I really encouraged her to keep her look simple. Since she’s a bridesmaid, it’s best that she not overshadow the bride with too many accessories. A few sparkly baubles, a great blowout, simple makeup, and a mani-pedi is all she’ll need to compliment her gown and bouquet.

We next “closed out” her spring/summer wardrobe and reviewed her closet for fall/winter. I think it’s important to take note of what items you felt were missing from your current season’s wardrobe as the season is ending. That way you’re not having to remember six months later what items you need to add/replace.

I’m looking forward to shopping for new fall/winter pieces for Luzia’s wardrobe. Hopefully we’ll find some great pieces that will elevate her style.

Tell me…what items are you looking to purchase this fall/winter season?

Class Dismissed!!

Shopping with New Client Funmi A.

I met Funmi at Old Navy to shop for a few things to wear during the last of summer. Because she is a new client, I wanted to find a few fun pieces (with a few basics) that I Funmi could incorporate into her existing wardrobe. At Old Navy we found several tops and a pair of skinny jeans that fit her very well.

Next, we ventured to Marshalls and picked out a few blouses and a curious navy pleated skirt to try on. As Funmi tried on these items (especially the skirt), I was able to see that she has a great proportionate figure and wears clothes so nicely! I encouraged her to buy the skirt along with a couple blouses that really accentuated her figure.

I believe Funmi left with some good buys that will transform her look. I enjoyed taking Funmi outside her comfort “style” zone during her appointment. I look forward to hearing how her new items are working for her.

Tell me – Was there ever a time you bought an article of clothing that was outside your comfort zone but grew to love it?

Until next time…Class dismissed!
