A Fall Make Over!

Had the opportunity to work with this wonderful, stay home mom who is now making the transition back into the work force as a Premier Designs Jewelry consultant. She had been out of the work world & now in need of wardrobe make over.  Wearing seasonally appropriate attire was not important to this stay home mom until, “styledbyJReid” came along.

The plan of action, seasonally update this wonderful mom’s wardrobe while keeping it “her style”.

Using items from one’s current wardrobe is my main goal, but in this case a few new items were necessary.  Shopping for new items while keeping the budget in mind called for a visit to a local consignment, Clothes Mentor, our first stop. There we scored a pair of wide legged black slacks, two cardigans (solid & multi-colored), a pair of Nine West black pumps & three tops for $30. (Items not photographed.)  Some items still had the original tags while the others were barely worn.  I was impressed as consignment shopping is not my thing. These items are part of the business casual side of her wardrobe for business meetings or corporate clients; appropriate for fall & other seasons.

Our next stop was the local Stein Mart where we scored one blouse, two sweater tops, a sweater vest, pair of zebra print black booties & brown casual booties.  (Photos shown taken at the Stein Mart, but all items went home with this lovely lady.) A more comfortable, casual look to blend with her current clientele & for comfort while transporting her inventory was needed.


Can you guess her favorite color? Hmmm….red!      Shown: denim from current wardrobe making 3 outfits. Denim shown un-cuffed and cuffed.
