I wore this outfit yesterday to a client’s home. We cleaned out her closet, and made her some new outfits. I think this outfit was also about dressing in a particular way for my client. I knew she was older and a bit more conservative, so while I still dressed like me, I didn’t want to go over the top with colors, patterns, or anything that would make her think I was going to go crazy in her closet and force her to dress like me.
We all(or if you don’t do this you should) dress for the appropriate occasion. When I work with children, my hemlines are longer. When I am shopping with clients, I usually wear what I want. I even find myself dressing for particular clients. If I know they are nervous about the whole personal shopper/wardrobe consultant/ stylist bit, I make sure to wear something fairly accessible. I want to put them at ease, not make them think I am going to force them to look like a pattern-mixing-crazy-color-wearing person. If I know they are more daring, then I am usually a bit more daring too.
Do you dress differently for different occasions?
Gap tunic, thrifted vintage skirt, Calvin Klein shoes, Stella and Dot jewelry.
