I don't share much personal information on this blog.
I think? I used to post much more in the early years. I have had a very very difficult two years in my personal life. This has caused me to do a lot of soul searching and reflecting about all the lovely things in my life that I am so grateful for everyday. One of these things is my career and all the amazing people I have been blessed to work with, style or teach something (and if you are reading this I mean you!!!) So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for letting me into your lives!!
This crazy career has also allowed me some fabulous opportunities for adventure.
I wanted to look back on one of those experiences here today and share or reshare with you!
Way back in 2012 I was hired by Stacy London's company, Style for Hire.
Sadly, Stacy chose to close Style for Hire two years later. I will always be thankful for the opportunites it allowed me. I realized this week a lot of my readers and clients may not know about this fabulous journey.I was so proud to be part of Style for Hire, so I wanted to share how it all started with you today!
So most of you know...
I recently spent five fun and fashion filled days in NYC.
I was holding out on you all until I had news to share.
The point of this trip?
I attended a Style For Hire Seminar,
with Stacy London and her delightful and inspiring team!
I spent three days with Style for Hire.
We had some killer keynote speakers:
We had some basic styling lessons...learning more about Stacy London's styling philosophies.
There were lots of challenges, both group and individual!
The individual one was very, very intense!
It challenged your styling abilities, people skills, and how you work under pressure.
One of my favorite parts of this seminar was meeting other stylists from around the country!
It reminded me of a job interview/reality t.v show(did I mention our challenges were intense?)/sorority rush.
The outcome of these seminars?
They select stylists that show potential and have natural ability as "apprentices",
they tell people no thanks and welcome them to attend the seminar again,
and a very select few were chosen to be in the network of "Style for Hire Stylists".
The amazing news here...I made it!! I am now a Style for Hire Stylist!
What does this mean??
I will still have my own business and blog, etc...Style Your Life will not change.
But now I will also get work through Stacy London's company as well,
so I will be endorsed as one of her hand picked stylists, which will open up many more doors for me.
Believe it or not more people know about Stacy London then know about me ;)
One of my new projects will be working with the Westfield Style Tours,
so I may be coming to your area!! I will keep the blog up to date with this information.
I couldn't be more excited for this new adventure.
Now some pictures of my adventures!
Seminar Day 1
This is the day I also met and chatted with Chris Parnell in the elevator!
Saw Robert Downey Jr. (VERY handsome in person) and a TON of paparazzi.
I was standing in the lobby talking on the phone to my husband and I looked up and there was RDJ!
I was like "OM Robert Downey Jr. just walked in front of me!!"
When he walked outside the paparazzi went crazy. It was fun to be in the middle of all that action!!
The Avengers premier was that night so the stars were all staying that the Trump Hotel.
The Final Day
So the story behind the 20,000 cake ? It is a Sylvia Weinstock creation.
Our seminar was at the Trump Hotel Soho.
There was a wedding reception going on at the hotel, they heard that SL and team were at the hotel so they sent up the bottom tier of the cake to us!
It was amazing, and I doubt I will ever get to taste $20,000 cake again, LOL.
