It’s a warm, fuzzy and very rewarding feeling knowing you’ve made a real difference to someone’s day! That’s why I LOVE what I do!!
On Friday, fabby UnModel Mel, had an AndAndrea Styleover. Her partner treated her, for her Birthday (how lovely). Mel was really excited and a teensy bit nervous! Excited about the possibility of finding a fresh new style and nervous… just incase I didn’t ‘get’ her style! She brought along her lovely stepmum Heather.
Over an initial coffee chat, Mel explained that, she has a new bub and that she’s a time poor, non-shopper!! She also admitted that she felt a bit drab when meeting girlfriends for coffee and she had no nice clothes to go out to dinner in, with her special man!! Hence, she didn’t really want to go out much!
I hear a similar story from many of my clients.
I love knowing a dose of retail therapy and some girlie fun can really make such a HUGE difference. Clothes may be superficial, but they DO affect the way you feel!
Anyway…it’s time to go shopping and get styling!!.
Mel had a look in mind that appealed… the classic Ralph Lauren look. Timeless and effortless. So, on the top of her wish list was a casual (not worky) navy blazer, a striped tee and dark washed jeans. We ticked most of the items off at Saba. For Mel’s shape, Sportscraft jeans won hands down and she bought them in light wash for day, dark wash for night and Boyfriends for fun! We found sneakers at Seed, colourfun camis at Sportsgirl and fab black dressy pants at Country Road. Her extra special ‘splurge’ piece was a Sass & Bide jacket!
Here we are!! Styling done and dusted!! Mel above (R) in her new blazer and stripy tee and Heather (L) also found a few well deserved S&B treats along the way!! Err… excuse the thongs. Mel did score a fab pair of flats at David Jones, but her feet were tired out after all that shopping!!
Once home, Mel was so excited, she not only cleaned out her wardrobe, but she sent me a selfie and attached this note below…
Mel made my day… Love my styling and forever grateful that I can help others.
