I was most insecure about deviating from a classic polished style and developing a street style that still felt elevated. By using pieces that I already own with a few updates and unthought-of combinations, I'm having more fun with my street style.
What was your biggest insecurity about your wardrobe or style before working together? Did it change, and if not, what happened instead?
Mandie was fantastic! She made me feel so comfortable while helping me get out of my style comfort zone. She ha a great eye and I'd recommend her to anyone.
If you were to recommend me to a friend, what would you say?
It was so fun! And I found new ways to mix and match the pieces that I have. This helped me refresh my wardrobe and leveraging investments I've already made. Now I'm excited to go shopping with her and find some new looks!
What, specifically, was your favorite part of the process of working together, and why?
