The moment I decided to launch my personal styling services, ideas started running through my head about stores and brands I’d recommend, styles I like and dislike, and what it would be like to work with my first client.
Well, I’m happy to say that I didn’t have to wait long to find out, and I was ecstatic when my dear friend Jessica of Spiffy Eats & Giggle Water signed up for an Online Styling Consultation. I’ve always felt Jessica has amazing style — the first thing I told her was how much I admire her ability to rock hats! I love how hats can take an outfit up another notch — or 10! And Jessica has a great eye for stylish hats.
So when she asked for my help in finding an outfit for a presentation she was giving on essential oils, I was excited to work with someone who I knew would be open-minded and excited to explore. I’ll always be grateful to her for getting me started on this venture!
After we chatted via email, she filled out her questionnaire and we had a FaceTime session, I sent her a Style Action Plan. And I was thrilled that she found it so useful! Here, in Jessica’s own words, she’ll tell you more about her experience:
Last month I had my first-ever speaking engagement. I had to organize all of my notes, gather all of my demos and put together the giveaways. One problem remained: What was I going to wear? Over the last two years, I have gotten my 30-year-old body. I am loving my awesome curves that I never had before. But, I have been so lost in trying to figure out what size I am and how to flatter my newly developed “figure.” Shopping for a body completely different than the one I’ve had for over 28 years has proven to be a bit challenging. So, I sought out the assistance of a professional.
I have known Jennifer of Stellar Fashion and Fitness for several years now and always envied her ability to put together the most stylish and fashion-forward ensembles that accentuate her fabulous curves. I visited her website and signed up for an online styling consultation. And thank God I did! In one quick call and a short survey Jennifer was able to nail down my style preferences and help me discover what sizes fit me best. We emailed back and forth throughout the week and she sent me a detailed document with several different style concepts. She then gave me specific items to shop for at local stores in my area or online. As I went through the shops telling the sales clerks “My style consultant wants me to try on this and that,” Jennifer was there the entire time. I sent her photos and questions and she guided me through the entire process. There is nothing quite as empowering as walking into a clothing shop and knowing exactly what you are looking for.
Jennifer was professional, kind, encouraging and all around a fantastic stylist. If you are like me, wondering what size you are, what clothes fit best for your body type, what stores you can find fashionable and affordable clothing at, I highly recommend Stellar Fashion.
She also advised me on how to present myself for my first TV appearance, encouraging me to wear stylish but comfy shoes and colors that complement my skin tone.
I couldn’t have asked for a better first client, and I’m so glad Jessica found the experience valuable, too.
