A Stylish CPA - Coming Soon!
It's been a while since I've posted a client makeover - not for lack of clients, but I like to tell a cohesive story (when I can!) and I'm still getting used to taking photos during a session. I work like mad when I am doing a style session, closet cleanse or a client fitting so there's not a lot of time for the photo ops. Enter: assistant!
This past Monday I had a Style Session that included some heavy duty closet cleaning. This client is a woman with her own business (I seem to attract you bad ass boss ladies!) but who wants to up her style game because she is taking on new roles, has just bought another company, and wants her wardrobe to match her status.
We started this client's makeover with the Style Session which including us diving deep into what the client's style can be. Like many of my clients, she doesn't currently have a defined style, but does know what she likes. She is also looking for help dressing for her body type, learning about alterations (yay petite woman!), and experimenting with mixing and matching the things she already owns.
As you can see from the before and after photo - we focused our session on a major closet cleanse and did all of her clothes and shoes in about 2.5 hours. We didn't touch her bags (she's a second hand luxury bag lover) or get to the top shelf (like how it's strategically cropped out of the after? My little secrets - ha!), but we did ALL of her winter and summer clothing as well as her range of shoe options. She has some crazy cool boots hiding away in there!
One of my favorite things about a closet cleanse is the visual change that happens - we literally take a closet that is in a state of chaos and disorganization and turn it into a space that has room to breath, feels orderly and is appealing to look at. We removed all of her plastic, wire and freebie hangers and replaced them with felt ones. The felt hangers aren't all matching, but already they provide a more cohesive feel.
So what did we get rid of? 84 tops, 12 pairs of pants, 7 jackets, a handful of accessories, and 63 plastic hangers, all of which is being donated. I can't wait to implement my sustainable fashion methods and investing in quality over quantity in this closet!
