Hello fashionista friends…I had the really fun opportunity to do a video shoot with Alicia from Chic on A Shoestring for Moms Summit 2014 coming up in March. Alicia is an amazing wardrobe stylist and just a dynamic woman that wants to help women of all sizes and shapes learn how to flatter their unique figures. I felt like a movie star working with Alicia and the other gals and watching the camera guy and how he set up the lighting was so interesting.
In the video segment Alicia gave each one of us tips about the hard to dress areas of our bodies. Her philosophy is “You take a shopping list to the grocery store, you should have a plan for your wardrobe”
I learned quite a few things…like I should shorten most of my tops to make sure they sit above the crotch area…because I am short waisted most tops are too long and shorten my leg length. By altering my tops it will give me a longer look in my torso. I also learned that the reason I did not like this jacket on me was because it had some shoulder pads in it and made the fabric hunch up in the back..I removed them as soon as I got home. I learned about jeans and what to look for in a good fit and a whole lot more!
It really was a blast to work with Alicia and all the other ladies that were there and it was so interesting to see how she helped each of us with our problem areas. Her blog is chiconashoestring.com and there you will find tips and ideas plus a fit and flatter guide that you can purchase. Alicia also offers one on one consultations, group styling and shopping plus wardrobe and closet inventory and more….go to her blog and check out all her fabulous tips and all the options to help the everyday woman with her wardrobe. Thank you Alicia for sharing your incredible experience, tips and knowledge…..I loved every minute of it! I am looking forward to the Moms Summit 2014 and working with you again!
