V.V revamps Mariela’s wardrobe!
Yesterday I was set to meet a lovely lady by the name of Mariela to help her revamp her wardrobe. This is one of the Services I assist people with called “shopping tour guide”. The way it works is that I take people to my favorite stores and I shop specifically for them. I shop according to the persons personal style and I also know what types of clothes flatter certain figures. I also had her try on many things that weren’t in her comfort zone that she ended up loving. Its amazing what 4 sets of eyes can find especially from 2 different perspectives. I helped Mariela completely revamp her wardrobe with pieces she would have probably passed by since she says she just shops for one thing she needs at a time. We had such a great time, Mariela is sweet as pie, and I took her to so many great vintage/consignment shops (as requested). Not only did she leave with bags full of great clothes and shoes but she acquired a brand new style that she never knew she could pull off. Here are some pictures of our successful finds.
The minute I stepped into the store I saw these really cute Jeffery Campbell shoes in Mariela’s size! It was jackpot after just being in the store for only just a few seconds.
I ADORE this dress and grabbed it off the rack the minute I saw the stripes! And it was Mariela’s size! Look how great it looks on her! This was my favorite dress on her.
I have a good eye for Betsey and I manage to always find her stuff in vintage shops. Mariela looks really great in fuchsia and purples so this dress looked divine on her. The lace detail gives the dress such an elegant feel, she looked so beautiful in it.
For a casual look I had Mariela try on high-waisted short skirts. As you can see here it works for her because of her height. If you want to appear more lean and tall when your 5 ft like us, your best bet is shorter higher waisted skirts. The fact that the skirt is multicolored is great because you have many top options. She looks great!
Vintage shoes usually come in sizes 5-7 so I had no problem finding Mariela great pairs of vintage shoes. These stood out to me and when I had her try them on, she loved them and purchased them! These shoes were in such great condition and sooo cute!
Mariela has a great figure so I had her try on some Night-out-on-the-town dresses as well. I actually have the corset of this dress and I know how it fits and had her try it on and it looked great on her. Leopard is a staple pattern for every girls closet.
This is a piece Mariela found and I loved it on her. This is yet another leopard piece that works. Once she lets her wild hair out and pairs this with some fierce black pumps she will steal the attention of any room.
I found these shoes while looking at the Glasses rack and when I saw they were a 6 1/2 I ran to Mariela and she nearly died. These shoes are in IMPECCABLE condition for being vintage. The beautiful flower detail and the satin finish makes for a perfect pair of shoes that go with everything. These were in-the-bag.
These are another pair of shoes I found for Mariela. They are definitely vintage from the 80’s. I love the harlequin feel they have to them with the checkered heel and the fact that they are yellow is awesome! They looked so good on her!
As I said, this girl looks great in fuchsias and purples, this dress was no exception. This vintage dress looked lovely on Mariela. Dresses like this are so easy to accessorize. You just add a belt, a matching pair of shoes, a purse, and you are ready to go!
I am so happy we had such a good turn out and that I fulfilled my mission of revamping Mariela’s wardrobe. She says she wants to go for part 2 soon! A girl is never done shopping lol!
