Styling Session!!!

13 Feb

 

Woohoo!!!  Talk about a FUN Friday!!  This is a glimpse of what I was doing with 2 very special, beautiful women…one of which received one of my styling gift certificates from her husband for Christmas.  We waited until the edge of spring before we went shopping.  We had a great time and I took lots of pics to share with you…

Meet Stacey, my client/friend. This little number was one of her favorites that I put together for her. She was the perfect client--totally open for anything and she has the PERFECT figure to dress!

In Stacey’s words: 

All girls dream of a “pretty woman” moment.  Well, I have experienced
mine this week, and I want all ladies to know, it is possible and
Meagan can make it happen!!  After countless times of hearing me say,
“I just need someone to tell me what to wear.” or “I bet someone could
do something really cute with that shirt.”, my sweet husband got me
the best Christmas gift ever.  A gift certificate to shop and be
styled by Meagan!!

I can NOT tell you how much fun this has been!  We set out with a few
goals….I let her know I was not good at the whole “mix and match”
thing.  I am more of a “get a really cute shirt and wear it with
jeans” gal.  Goal #1…get out of this rut!  Goal #2…I wanted some
things I could wear for fun and also tweek a bit and wear to work,
because who has the budget for both?  Goal #3…be able to do all of
this and still be able to pay my bills! I can honestly say goals
accomplished!  Meagan came over and took a look at what I already had
in my closet and off we went.  And let me tell you…this sounds
daunting, but this gal is fast and efficient.  She was focused and fun
and accomplished in an hour or two what would have taken me days and
days!

Maybe the greatest part of all is, after shopping she did not leave
the “mix and match challenged” to figure it all out and remember what
was said in the dressing room. Meagan came to my house and went to
work showing me what could be done with each piece.  I swear she
magically made what would have been 20 outfits to me into 70+!  We
took pics of all the options and now, when printed out, I have a
“catalog” of things I actually own!  How amazing is that?!

A magical “pretty woman” experience that I can not say enough about.
Husbands…..seriously…..BEST GIFT EVER!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Meagan for all your help and all the fun!!!!!

I am SO flattered!!!  So glad I got a new, sweet friend out of this whole deal!  Thank you, Stacey, for the kind words.

Get ready for a long post guys!  Here’s a look into what is now in Stacey’s closet…

Let's start with this great mustard-y yellow skirt! First, I paired it with a shirt Stacey already had but didn't know what to really put it with.

Next, I paired the skirt with her new white collared shirt. I layered her new snap button denim shirt over it and added her new skinny braided white belt.

This is a blazer Stacey already had. I paired it with her new basic white tank and mixed 3 of her necklaces together to finish the look. Add some sheer black hose if it's chilly!

This was a shirt she already had but wasn't sure what to put it with besides jeans. Well, now here's another option!

Started with this and ended with this...

Isn't this great! She loved the simple jumper once I got finished with it! Look at those amazing legs!!

Stacey wanted to try the color-blocking trend but nothing too crazy. These navy blue cotton jeggings paired with neon yellow were the perfect mix.

And the colorful belt added a great finishing touch to pull it together!

Nautical. Lots of mix-matching!


So glad I got her into some high-waisted shorts!! Precious.

Take my word for it--buy these jeans! I have them in the black/dark denim wash & they're incredibly flattering!! The Stella Flare at Express. Love all white. So fresh. And this jacket I found for her is great because it has detachable sleeves.

Add a layer to change it up! Isn't that a fun shirt?!

Stacey already had this black and gray animal print top. Her new green faux leather jacket adds an unexpected pop of color against the white jeans and muted top.

Another way to wear her new denim shirt and the belt that was attached to her new high-waisted shorts! Cool and chic.

There's that coral tank and her blazer again! =)

I started with this cute little lace-y number...

...then layered it over her new white collared shirt and paired it with her new long maxi skirt (in first pic with coral tank).

Or how about over a simple tank paired with her new green cargo skinny pants?!

So cute with some great wedges!! (from Warren's of course!)

There's nothing wrong with wearing this cute dress as is, but...

...make it unique--your own--with these options!

Chic and simple.

Layered up!

Pleats are a huge trend right now. Love this skirt! Dress it down like this!

Sheer cardigan-she already had.

Remember this top/jacket duo with the white jeans?? Another way to wear it! Throw on some black booties and you're set!

That bold sweater is back! Stacey, some polka-dot hose would be something fun to add to this look 😉

There is soooooo much more but I’m going to stop for today.  I’ve had a non-stop weekend full of work, dancing to the music of Boom Kinetic with friends at Mojo’s, working with Cole (owner of Gadget Grave–click on his site under my “favorites” to check him out!) on my new website (coming soon!!!) and just enjoying this beautiful weather today!!  I hope you are getting out of your winter rut – I know I am!  Today’s temperature was all I needed to re-energize my soul.  Hope you had a fabulous weekend!  Here’s to another week!

Until next time…I hope you have a blessed day!

xoxo, Meg

    You have an amazing gift for sharing your styling ideas as well as giving your time to others.
    I’m thinking I need to give my husbands some hints about your work;)
