Client Makeover: Summer Refresh

Summer is in full swing and hopefully your wardrobe is updated in time for the shift in temperature. My client Carolyn contacted me a few months ago because her wardrobe was in need of a little boost for summer. You see, I worked with her for the first time this past February and I may have gotten rid of most of her wardrobe.


Since I made her look great for fall/winter, it was only fair that I do the same for spring/summer.

Carolyn is inspired but All-American girls like Reese Witherspoon. She loves a classic look with a stylish twist. I wanted to give her something easy, fun, and stylish for summer. Carolyn recently left her full-time job and is now a full-time actress! She needed clothing for her everyday life but also pieces that could be easily dressed up for auditions.

Summer isn’t the season to splurge on a new wardrobe – that’s what fall is for.  So I went for budget-friendly pieces from Nordstrom Rack, Target, Marshalls, and TJ Maxx aka my favorite bargain shopping haunts. I was able to score top brands like Joie, James Perse, Vince, and Joe’s Jeans for a fraction of the cost.the fitting bannerSo you know my fittings are always a blast, right? This one was no exception. Carolyn and I caught up on all things life including her new full-time gig as an actress, her booty blasting new workout obsession (Pop Physique), and our dogs (of course).  Dogs are always welcome at my fittings.

Carolyn left with a bag full of summer essentials including this dress by Joie ($39.99 at TJ Maxx). Not gonna lie, was kind of hoping she wouldn’t love this dress so I could buy it 😉
