I’m so excited for this. We’re doing another Client Spotlight, where we feature one of our amazing clients.
This time, we want you to know about Sharon.
She has a strong sense of style – and many amazing pieces in her wardrobe – but admitted to us that she could use some help:
- sifting through everything to see what garments are keepers
- understanding what works best for her body type
- getting rid of pieces that just don’t work for her
We did just that. Sharon was pleased with the result of the work we did together.
Here’s what she has to share with you.
Why did you originally reach out and contact L Squared Style? What were you hoping to achieve?
I contacted L Squared Style because I had so many clothes and was overwhelmed with trying to put together outfits to wear every day. I wanted to pare down my wardrobe to the items that looked the best on me as well as mix and match to the best advantage.
What was the style coaching experience like for you?
The coaching was an excellent experience. I hauled everything out of my closets and was prepared to part with anything and everything. I loved that outfits were put together (some of them surprising and in combinations I hadn’t thought of) and was encouraged to part with things that didn’t look great.
These are some of the outfits that were put together for Sharon from her wardrobe. Nothing new was purchased to pull these looks together.
What have you told others about your experience? What have they said?
People are surprised that I used a stylist as I am a bit of a shopaholic and (as I said) had lots of clothes. I have recommended this service to several of my friends – it is almost impossible to get an unbiased opinion of what suits one’s figure and style and Lazina does an excellent job of pointing out one’s best features and how to accentuate them.
Why do you think people should have a style and personal branding consultant in their coaching corner?
I think many people have a mental image of themselves from a time when they may have been younger or thinner or a combination of both. Often times, we also choose clothes that look great on models but not so much on us.
A style coach can reframe how we look at ourselves and encourage us to put our best image forward. It can also save money in the long run because if you buy something you like but it doesn’t look good or fit properly, you’re not going to wear it.
Of all the lessons that were shared with you during your time with L Squared Style, what are the top 3 things that you’ve fully incorporated into your personal style?
- I am wearing colour! Colours that suited me when I was younger no longer look the best.
- I am mixing prints and patterns and am a bit more creative in my outfits – no more matchy/matchy.
- I have a more concrete idea of my style “personality” and am choosing clothes that more closely fit into the parameters.
How has this entire experience impacted how you view personal style as well as presentation of self?
I’ve always had a definite idea of the image I wanted to present to the world – L Squared Style has given me the tools and the help to make it happen.
