If you are subscribed to my newsletter or my YouTube channel, then you know what I just wrapped a makeover series with my client ‘Little Miss Single’. This is a powerful one, and I wanted to recap the whole thing right here on my blog. Check it.
I first met ‘Little Miss Single’ in Maui at a bachelorette party for one of my other clients (hello, job perk). She was full of great energy, funny, and kind. The only issue was, her personal style was not reflecting that at all. I remember one night we went out to dinner, and she wore workout clothes. I was like “so, umm … are you getting dressed?” Her hair and makeup were done, but the outfit was not a match.
A few months later she contacted me and said she was ready to change her style.
After her divorce, she starting kicking ass in her career (she’s dance teacher), got herself a cool place to live, and developed many close friendships. Still something was missing. ‘Little Miss Single’ was stuck in her pre-divorce style and was continuing to attract the wrong kind of men.
After our initial conversation about her need to work with me, it was quite clear that my ‘Get Your Sexy Back’ dating style package was exactly what she needed.
The next step in the process is to sit down with me for a more in-depth discussion. During my consultations, we dig in and get deep, talk about style, goals, and, of course, go through the details like sizes and measurements.
Here is a small sampling of my chat with ‘Little Miss Single’ …
I don’t go into all of my clients closets, but don’t you worry, I still get to figure out exactly what they have inside with a few special techniques. One being my Ultimate Wardrobe Checklist. This list helps me determine if you have the basics. If you don’t, then I know I have to work those items into the clients pull.
Additionally, I have my clients bring a suitcase full of clothing for their chosen style package. This allows me to see a sampling of what they own, and if any of the items are stylish, I can work them into their new look.
After we’ve talked (twice), I’ve reviewed the client’s wardrobe, and then I start on the style development process. I am all about collaboration, rather than slapping what I think my client should wear on their back. I utilize Pinterest to create a custom board for my client. I then invite them to this private board so they can add comments and feedback.
Once I’ve reviewed the feedback, I create what I call a Style Road Map for my client. This is a visual representation of what they might see at their fitting.
Houston, we have a vision! Once the Style Road Map is set that gives me the go ahead to go shopping. This particular client chose the ‘Babe on a Budget’ package for the clothing budget. Here is where I shopped for her:
– Target (you know I love those jeans)
– Last Call Neiman Marcus
– The Outnet
– Nordstrom Rack
– TJ Maxx
– Lane Bryant
– City Chic
The fitting is the big moment! This is where the outfits are set (I style them the night before), and the client arrives to try on and take home what she loves. I always make my fittings VIP experiences. That means snacks, tea, music, food, and FUN! This fitting was no exception, we had a blast!
Here are some of the winning outfits …
