Warwick Mall Makeover: Before and After!
In my work, I see first-hand how much a change in outward appearance can affect one’s inner self.
Sometimes, transformation starts from the outside in…
Case in point? My Warwick Mall makeover subject, Andrea!
“Growing up, I was never able to identify my own personal style. When I won a style consultation and personal shopping with Jill through a contest, I was absolutely ecstatic! Jill really took the time to learn about me so that she could tailor the experience to who I am, what I wanted, and how I wanted people to perceive me. I can really say that I came out a better version of myself and I felt like a star the entire time. It also helps that I learned my pant size was actually smaller than what I was wearing!”
-Andrea M., West Warwick, RI
Lucky for me, Andrea is naturally beautiful – she just needed an upgrade. Her weight had fluctuated over the years (a very common issue!) so she didn’t know her correct sizes and how to determine proper fit. I had her complete an in-depth questionnaire as part of my Style Consultation so I could get to know her lifestyle, personal taste, and goals. She felt her current look was inconsistent and sloppy, and she wanted to learn how to accessorize.
After I took her measurements and determined her body type, (she’s an hourglass) I came up with a list of key pieces to add to her closet. The makeover included a $500 gift card to Nordstrom Rack, so we shopped for the next few hours. Since Andrea felt she needed help putting outfits together, I focused on shopping for complete looks for her – accessories and all. For her hourglass shape, she needs clothes that follow the lines of her body – anything too boxy was immediately ruled out (particularly challenging right now with dolman sleeves and boxy tops everywhere!)
We found some great fitted dresses, jeans, sweaters and accessories to spruce up her look and accentuate her figure. After we shopped, Andrea had her hair and makeup done to complete the transformation.
Look how gorgeous she looks!
