Everyone gets in a style rut from time to time. Often times it's not that you need an entirely new wardrobe, you just need a fresh pair of eyes to help you re-imagine what you have.
Once you've purged and organized your closet, it's time to call in someone who can help you find your style, rework your clothes, and think about dressing in a fun and fresh way. Enter Brianna Lamberson. Bri comes to your home, talks with you about your goals and your set backs, and takes on your wardrobe with an expert eye. Her goal is to help you "find your unique style and reclaim your space." In addition to style, Bri focuses on simple living, natural skin care products and health.
Over the past few weeks, Bri has had a style consultation with two HYD'ers.
We would love to share our experiences and a few outfits with you! (Pardon my unwashed hair--mom of a 4 month old probs)
Caroline's style rut: I have a 4 month old and have resorted to yoga pants most days. Additionally, I feel like I'm revisiting my closet for the first time in a while since many of my favorite pieces weren't options when I was pregnant. I've found myself many times in the past few months just standing in front of my open closet with a blank look, not knowing what I like anymore.
Caroline's take: I'd never really considered using a style consultant before since I've liked my style and enjoyed putting outfits together for most of my life. When I found out about Bri's mini styling sessions though, I was curious enough to solicit her services. Bri had so many helpful tips that she shared with me about using staple pieces in a variety of different ways. She totally heard my current frustrations with my clothing and helped me think outside of the box and in new ways. I especially loved the ways that she used accessories to rework and transform outfits from basic to funky and interesting. Besides having several new outfit combinations to choose from, she left me feeling way more confident to try things that would normally be a bit out of my comfort zone. I've been rocking neck scarves and jewelry a lot more often since she came! I would definitely recommend Bri's mini styling session for all kinds of people-- even if you are already feeling good about your fashion sense!
Erin's style rut: I felt like I'd been wearing the same clothes since high school.. not overly feminine, just really bland. Everything felt frumpy and I felt stuck.
Erin's take: I went into the session a little apprehensive. I was worried that none of my clothes would be suitable to keep, but I knew Bri would be very personable and not intimidating. She poked around my closet for a few minutes while we chatted about my goals, and she started to pull a few items for me to try. They were pieces that I had never put together in outfits before, and they worked! I was amazed that my wardrobe, that I had pieced together from thrift stores and hand-me-downs was actually worthwhile and could look great! After talking through several outfits, I felt much more put- together and confident in my options. She was encouraging and knowledgeable and left me feeling good about what I've got, not defeated in what I'm lacking. She even had suggestions for what pieces I should add to my wardrobe including a blazer, ankle boots, and finding a good tailor to alter a few pieces of clothing that I already have. She even offers personal shopping if you are interested!
