New Year, New You!
When Rhode Island Monthly magazine contacted me to style a photo shoot for their New Year, New You issue, I immediately agreed. They were looking for a local woman in need of a makeover and chose Bethany, a working mom from East Greenwich. I love makeovers, and even more so when the subject is a mother. Many of my clients are moms who have found it difficult to re-establish their sense of style after having children. It is always a pleasure to be part of a process that can do wonders for one’s self-esteem and confidence.
The contrasting separates that Bethany tended to wear were visually cutting her in half. To create a longer, leaner silhouette, I chose black Alice + Olivia pants and paired them with an embellished navy Gold Hawk top and Minnie Rose cashmere shawl, all from Kristina Richards Studio in Cranston, RI. The shades of blue and black created a more cohesive look that flattered her body and elongated her silhouette. She actually looks 10 pounds thinner in the “after” photos!
