A nightmare about my style.
I was in the hairdresser’s chair; she had cut bangs and dyed my hair blonde. I was so unhappy, I was crying. I kept saying I hated it, but everyone else in the shop would say, “oh, it looks so good on you!”
That’s not the point. I was crying because it wasn’t me.
I see this all the time with my private clients. Just last week, I was in the dressing room with a client in a SoHo department store. She had on a dress that looked fantastic on her, but her facial expression told me everything. It wasn’t her. So we moved on.
When I work with clients, I don’t get emotionally attached to anything I preselect, and I let my clients know that they don’t have to worry about hurting my feelings. Hearing their style perspective and reactions only helps me learn their style better. Knowing your style viewpoint is what helps you shape and hone in on your style.
It’s what makes future shopping excursions easier and easier. Knowing what you hate is just one step closer to finding what you love.
So I ask you: what looks good on you, but isn’t you?
Style is personal. So is perfume. What you like is often innate.
