As a slow fashion ambassador, I don’t like to use the word “makeover” which suggests that I just swoop in and snap my fingers and you’re suddenly a different version of yourself. My Sort, Shop & Style and Year of Style packages are about unlocking signature style through a collaborative process – encouraging creativity by supplying my client with expert guidance, ideas, tools and resources to inspire them. It takes time because it should. Which brings me to Dawn.
Clients and colleagues have been hounding me to do a Before & After series. The thrill of change resonates with everyone and I too enjoy seeing the positive effects my services have on my clients. I’ve been a little shy about showcasing them until Dawn said to me recently, “I think you should take before and after pictures for your website. I look a lot different than I did one year ago!”
With Dawn’s permission, here are her BEFORE pictures…
Dawn is an educator in the collegiate system, and she is a Pilates instructor, paper artist, and world traveler. Her clothes were not showcasing her creativity, fit body, or aesthetic at all! So we started by ditching the over-sized clothes, clunky outdated shoes, and masculine accessories. We made her an appointment with Sophie Sweet for a hair consultation. By shopping local boutiques, a couple department stores, and having two custom dresses made, we dialed in an interchangeable wardrobe fit for work, events, travel and special occasions.
Here is Dawn AFTER a Year of Style…
Dawn’s remarks: “Working with you was the best 60th birthday present I could have ever given myself. I rarely have to go shopping anymore because you’ve found everything I need for me. I’m wearing all of my pieces in multiple ways, now it’s just about adding in fun updates. And the compliments keep coming!”
You deserve them, Dawn. You are wonderful, talented, and full of life! And now you have a rockin’ wardrobe to match.
