Shine Time – Heather’s Story

By April 3, 2018Shine Time

“I’m a stay at home mom, frequent entertainer and trying to stay hip and fit to keep up with my three kids. I recently had Wendy come and do a closet edit. She was so helpful and encouraging. She weeded through my “never been worn” and “haven’t worn in a while” clothing. She helped me get rid of what did not suit me and gave me new inspiration with what I already own.
I now have a better idea of how to put together pieces that I wouldn’t have thought about in the past. It was like shopping in my own closet!!”

Heather was one of my favorite co-workers when we worked at The Bel Air Athletic Club in the late 1990’s.  So when she contacted me in February to help her edit her wardrobe, I was excited to see my old (you know what I mean, she’s obviously not old) friend.

Heather has an ethereal beauty.  One in which I envision her starring in a period piece like “Pride and Prejudice” or “Poldark” on Masterpiece.  But her beauty runs deep, in her warmth of heart and kindness.

She wanted to make sure she was getting the most of her current wardrobe, so we re-styled many of her basic pieces with items less worn (denim vest), to create fun, “new” outfits.

I love the olive green vest Heather paired with the cream, lacy top, jeans and boots,  kind of  military meets feminine. Heather also created a stylishly, simple outfit by pairing her denim jacket with a casual, black dress. Easy-peasy-polished.

The main goal was to create those “in-between” outfits (polished casual) for everyday errand running, as well as casual entertaining.I believe Heather’s inner and outer beauty shine through in these non-complicated ensembles. Mission accomplished!
