Stylist – Online Shopping Gone Wrong

Have you ever ordered an item online in hopes it would be as amazing as it looked on the model?You finally receive it and it’s nothing but!  I think that’s happened to the best of us, especially when we find a sale item and can’t resist. Once it has arrived it becomes much less than a steller deal as it just sits in the closet forever becoming another impulse buy.  I do think as a stylist,  there is hope!! Sometimes it just takes a little more thought and creativity to make that oversized sweater, to short of denim or whatever else you may have purchased look cool again.

Before Look: Online purchase ALC dress.

The look in this post shows a dress from one of my favorite brands, ALC, I had ordered online thinking what a deal, half price! When I received the dress in the mail it just didn’t fit, making me look wider and didn’t showcase any the areas I like to focus on with my personal style. I ended up trying different looks by layering  jackets to give the dress a cool casual vibe or dressy night out look! It worked and I felt like I had worked my personal style with the dress.

After: Dressy Look by adding a pair of heels & leather cropped leather jacket

 

After: Casual Look adding denim jacket & booties

For all those random online purchases, there’s hope! Add belts, jewellery, or like me a jacket to make the look suit your personal style. It could even be a heel vs a flat. Sometimes it’s just a quick visit to the seamstress to tweak that ill fitting area that didn’t seem so noticeable on the model!
