Sherold Barr is brave, beautiful and intuitive. Her work takes her all over the globe, both virtually and in person. While she is among the working-from-home-in-comfy-clothes crowd, she also finds herself needing to dress the part at events where she addresses large audiences on stage. We met last year just before she hired me for a Sort, Shop & Style. We had a fabulous time creating outfits and trimming the excess from her wardrobe. I even got to work with her sweet hubbie! And more recently, Sherold was off to New York City for an important photoshoot when she asked for my help planning her wardrobe. We identified key pieces to use from her current closet that resonate with who she is. I collaborated with her website designer and photographer to establish an overall look. And through sourcing for her locally and online, we filled in the gaps. For someone who is extremely giving and capable, I’m delighted she took the time to sit back and receive. The photos came back electric, below are just a few. Here’s what she had to say about the process…
“I hired Scarlet to go through my closet and get rid of clothes that weren’t working for me anymore. I’m a coach that works virtually with women entrepreneurs around the world. When I work, I typically wear comfortable clothes, yet I want to look polished when I go out or speak from the stage. Scarlet helped me understand what looks best on my body. She even photographed me in the outfits we styled so that I could see what to wear together and how each outfit looked. The Pinterest board we made, where I can collect images and clothes and jewelry that I love has helped me immensely!
Recently I hired Scarlet to style my clothes for a photo shoot for a new website that is being designed. She helped me put together jewelry, and each outfit down to the shoes. From working with Scarlet to flying to NYC and having a professional makeup artist and photographer, it was one of the most exciting experiences I’ve ever had. It will go down as a peak experience. I can’t say enough about Scarlet’s expertise as a stylist and how great it felt to be prepared. She is remarkable; a true pro and a pleasure to work with.”
