Happy Tuesday ladies. Today I have a mixed bag for you. A mannequin and a bit more info about me. I’d like to start doing some question-and-answer posts. Are you curious about something you’d like to see covered? Curious about me? If you have questions just hit reply to this email and ask away.
Today I’m answering questions about me.
Did I work as a stylist in a store or individually?
Yes and yes. I managed several intimate, high-end boutiques for many years. I did the merchandise buying along with the owner and helped ladies find the right garments for their bodies. It was extremely rewarding and I loved helping them. They began to ask me to come into their homes and help them organize their wardrobes and help them decide what should stay or go.
I realized this would be a fulfilling career change so began my studies. I trained with several image masters, tested, and received my certification from the Association of Image Consultants, better known as AICI.
“AICI is the leading and largest professional association of personal and corporate image consultants worldwide. Our members counsel both, individual and corporate clients on appearance, behavior, communication, and soft skills.”
I ran my own Image Consulting business for several years, helping women clean out their wardrobes and discover the gaps they need to fill with garments and accessories that will help them look and feel their best. We would shop together to find what they needed.
When the economy hit a nosedive I decided to retire and start a blog so I could share online, what I had been sharing with paying clients.
Now enough about me, let’s have a look at a mannequin I came across and see how you would style what she is modeling.
The blouse is semi-sheer chiffon with a ruffled neck and cuffs. You can click through the links above to learn more about the items.
Would these pieces work for you? Would you wear either one and how would you style them to work for your shape, coloring, and lifestyle.
Let’s have an exchange of styling ideas and inspire each other.
Thanks for being here and making this community such a warm, sharing place for women to discuss fashion.
Have a great one ladies and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
