Being a new mother never looked so effortlessly stylish
As a mother of three myself, I thought
it would only be appropriate to create a
selection of services catering to all the new
moms. We all know how challenging it can
be to look good during that transitional first
year of motherhood, when your body is in
a constant state of change and turmoil and
your time to get ready every morning is
nearly nonexistent. If you’re dying to donate
those maternity clothes but you aren’t quite
ready to return to your pre-pregnancy
wardrobe, these services are for you.
I’m not the type of person who you’d typically imagine would seek out a personal stylist. 30-something working Mama – time poor and happy if I manage to get to the office in an outfit that doesn’t have a penguin sticker, toothpaste or sticky fingerprints on it – legacy of my “morning commute”. I like shopping; I like fashion, but those things somehow got relegated to a past life and Pinterest sessions late at night when I should have been asleep.
Post-kids I’d lost confidence in my ability to shop. My body had changed. I’d changed and if I’m being honest, I no longer had the disposable income to make clothes shopping an enjoyable pastime. Talking to a stylist seemed like an extravagance that would only lead to heartache.
Miriam came to my house, had a look at my Pinterest musings and shopped my wardrobe. In the gentlest and most supportive way, we threw out clothes I’d been holding onto for too long and created a list of “basics” that were missing. We found outfit combinations that I would never have put together and I now have a plan of what to shop when I’m ready.
Can only imagine that shopping with Miriam in a real shop and not just my wardrobe would be equally – no much much more – rewarding.
