We will meet at an independent coffee shop that specializes in free trade coffee from developing countries and enjoy a complimentary cappuccino. There I will provide each participant with personal style advisement (personalized fit and color analysis.) After which we will briefly discuss vintage shopping. Each client will receive a booklet that I created while working in Florence, Italy. The pamphlet will provide an overview of textiles. Understanding the composition of textiles is important when vintage shopping because it can determine if an item is worth an investment (if it requires repair.) The booklet also addresses vintage sizing. After exploring vintage and consignment shops we will end the day with a private shopping experience at a boutique that specializes in international and local designers.
I am the epitome of all things unexpected! My first degree is Fashion Design with a minor in Art History and French. After living in Italy and working in Istanbul, I decided to switch careers. I became a licensed funeral director. While working at a funeral home, I began receiving inquiries from families to style them for the funeral service in which they were attending. And just like that, things returned back to fashion full circle. I now, run a private personal style advising, closet rehabilitation and personal shopping business along with blogging. My 14+ years in the industry has given me experience in every aspect of fashion. From textile design in Florence to operating a showroom in the nations capital. Last but not least, I am an EXPERT at finding designer pieces for LESS.
