As a little girl, I loved dress up, make up and anything to do with fashion. I began “studying” in the 6th grade when I received my first beauty book, “A Year of Beauty and Health” by Vidal Sassoon. I spent hours pouring through the pages trying to commit to memory all of the elements involved in putting yourself together – makeup, skincare, and body image, I would practice makeup application on my Barbie Beauty Station and developed my own unique sense of style – a fashionista was born and the seed was planted.
Later, I had the opportunity to study Image Development at The Lisa Maile School in Orlando, FL. It was there that I learned about how to make a positive first impression, social and business etiquette, and how to wardrobe on a dime by shopping my own closet. Never could I have imagined how invaluable those lessons would be later in life.
My passion for fashion became more of a necessity in my later years and I have relied heavily on the tools that I had learned. I am a former plus size and a current military spouse. My life dictates that I relocate often and at a size 26, if I was to be a success in the professional and social arena, I had to put myself together so that colleagues and perspective employers and new friends saw my ability rather than my size.
Over the years, I have moved over ten times and am no stranger to being physically, fiscally, and geographically challenged in the wardrobe. I began doing workshops teaching women how to stretch a wardrobe on a dime, to adapt current trend to the climate where we live and to dress for the events we attend. I also began working one on one to assist clients in personalizing their own style.
I know first hand just how empowering it is to look and feel your very best – there is nothing more incredible than witnessing that ‘A-ha’ moment when a woman looks into the mirror and fully sees herself and her potential for the first time.
I believe the key to your success may already be in your closet, and I am here to help you find it.
