Secret Style Suite at BlogHer 2011
This year I applied for a makeover in the Secret Style Suite at Blogher. Read my story here:
I explained a little about the rut I am stuck in. I wear a uniform of black yoga pants. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Without fail. I may change the color of the shirt but the chances are if you see me more than once a week, I probably always look the same.
This has been how I operated for years. I hate it but I don't know how to change.
I was thrilled to have been chosen as one of bloggers getting a makeover in the Secret Style Suite. I was granted access:
BEFORE MAKEOVER DAY: There were questionnaires. There were pictures. Several assignments to turn in so they could match us with brands and stylists on the big day.
MAKEOVER DAY: Full instructions were provided. I was given my assignment. Told when and where to show up. I was nervous and had no idea what to expect. Clothes always fit me a little strange so I was not terribly optimistic although I was hopeful.
I could not have had a better experience. From the moment they told me they wanted to put me in this:
I knew that everything would work out well. I was familiar with Kiyonna but had never worn them before. I was very excited to see that the clothing choices were done especially for me.
I love this dress. Kiyonna clothing is so well made and really looks great on. I seriously could have taken every Kiyonna dress they had there and would have honestly worn them until they were threadbare. That is how much I love this brand.
The makeup. The hair. I was taken care of from the moment I walked in the door and I left feeling amazing.
THE PARTY: I was a little nervous about walking on the runway but other than that, this evening was nothing short of amazing. The party was packed and the people were beautiful.
