As a Personal Stylist, one of my favorite ways to help my clients is by shopping your closet and creating new outfits! Often I often hear my clients say “I would have never thought of that” when I come up with a wonderful, new combination of pieces or even by adding a great new accessory to a favorite outfit. Those words secretly give me such a thrill and I love the challenge of coming up with new, creative combinations!
One client in particular spends a great deal of time travelling all over the world and will sometimes ask for my help in preparing her outfits for her trips.
We recently got together and created a plan of day and evening outfits for several upcoming trips, which have very specfic agendas and dress codes. Her travels were going to start off with a one day trip to New York…and then a non-stop flurry of international stops! I chose an outfit for the New York trip that was a chic combination of pieces she owns…an outfit that was casually elegant and comfortable.
While she was there, she sent me a very exciting email, that gave me a sweet thrill…. “Subject: Bill Cunningham took my picture!”
Do you know who Bill Cunningham is?
This is a trailer from the documentary, ‘Bill Cunningham New York’ which gives a brief glimpse into the amazing work of this talented photographer. In the fashion blogging world, street style photography is all the rage now, with popular blogs by photographers like www.thesartorialist.com and www.garancedore.com ….. but Bill Cunningham was the first and is the original!
Although not everyone will have their photo taken for the New York Times, I think we all want to look chic when we travel, which can be a challenge. Some pre-trip planning definitely helps! Of course, if you need help with travel packing, I’d love to assist you. Please contact me today!
