Virtual Client Session, Incredible Etsy Store, and an Exclusive Discount for You
Recently I had the absolute joy of helping to celebrate a 50th birthday- via a virtual FaceTime session! Natalie's daughter-in-law, Jenni, emailed me to book a surprise session for Natalie. Then, the morning of the session, she was presented with a gift card saying "Personal Styling Session. Your Closet. 10AM." The next three hours were a blur as the two daughters-in-law helped me to raid Natalie's closet and pick out versatile, fun, gorgeous outfits for their incredible mother-in-law. Here's what Jenni had to say about it (isn't she the sweetest?):
For my mother-in-law Natalie's 50th birthday this year I knew I had to do something a little more special and out of the ordinary. She has always wanted to have a stylist or personal shopper help her pick out clothes - she really hates shopping. So after I read Miss Mustard Seed's review on Ella, and saw that she would do online consultations, I knew it would be perfect!As we chatted, I learned that Jenni is an artist. She makes the most beautiful painted and upholstered pieces of furniture, including custom orders! And tomorrow marks her one year anniversary of opening her shop. So she's offering my readers 15% off with the code STARTCLOSEIN until 5/16! Isn't that awesome?
I had no idea what to expect, and it was a great surprise both for Natalie and I who got to sit in on the action (and learn a few things too!). Ella got right to work, having her try on her favorite outfits and things she usually wears to work. She changed up outfits in completely new ways that looked awesome!
Ella was great at giving tips along the way about what to buy to add a little more to the outfits - just great staples to have in your closet. Ella would be great working with anyone and any style, she was completely confident in her knowledge of fashion and at the same time super easy to talk to and work with.
We had a blast, it was a great 3 hours spent on a birthday! Natalie has been wearing the new outfit combos and getting compliments on them! She had a great time, we would both highly recommend Ella to anyone and everyone!
I particularly love the colors that Jenni uses, and I can imagine a few of these pieces in my own home!
I think the piece above would be beautiful as a changing table in a nursery. Then again, we always seem to need more storage space in our guest bedrooms...
Those are just a few of my favorites, but there are too many to choose from on her site! So check her site out in the next few days and don't forget to use the code STARTCLOSEIN for our special discount.
And thanks, Jenni, for sending along this action shot of Natalie from behind the scenes that day! Instead of street style I'm going to coin the phrase "closet style" to describe these live-action shots!
