Personal Shopper – A Fashion Lookbook

Pants: Paul Smith
1st polo: Fred Perry
2nd polo: Rag & Bone
Sneakers: Wings & Horns

Gentleman prefer photos …¬†Updating a man’s wardrobe and piecing together outfits is one thing but coming home from a successful shop done with your very own personal shopper is a whole other mattar. Not only do you end up with complete new outfit combinations but you also have the opportunity to build on the current outfits you already have in your wardrobe. You can receive on average at least 15 – 20 new looks per season!

One of the most requested services I receive is to find a way to document all the possible clothing combinations. The lookbook I create simplifies your morning selections by not having to think about how to pick and put together items and still look good. Instead, you turn to your personal collection of photos that showcase several combinations that work. Simply select what you feel like wearing for that day. The photos can be sent in email to save on your computer/phone or printed into an book!

I’ve created two separate lookbook updates last week for two different male clients. I thought I’d share some snaps for you to view of what a Mabelle Style fashion lookbook entails. Enjoy!


Personal Shopper – Styling Suits For The Ladies

How often do you see women wearing suits today?

I guess this could be dependent on what city you’re living in. Being based in the Vancouver market, I would say it isn’t something my clients are often looking for these days, but I have noticed during the past year the style of suits have really changed. They have become more versatile and fashionable, no longer carrying the stigma of being a ‘stuffy and corporate’ appearance for only certain jobs. You are now seeing suits worn on all different age groups and in all works-of-life. It’s the trend, and has become the norm with evolving styles from cropped pants and oversized blazers to bold prints, which provide options on how and when we wear a suit in Vancouver. I wanted to show you a few styles I’ve been providing clients in suits this season! Taking the classic colours of navy/hunter-green plaid, this multi-functional oversized fit is both professional and fun and gives three looks! (This suit is from Aritzia for $490)

First look – corporate day job to a night out for drinks at the Pacific Rim with a fierce heel.

 

Second Look – a fun style of oxford shoes give the suit a relaxed day look for a casual job to an evening out, pretty much anywhere in the city!

 

Third look – my fave. Who doesn’t want to wear a pair of sneakers? Well today, it is acceptable to wear with suits. Pick up a cool pair of Adidas for $90 and this can take your suit pretty much anywhere in the city .. looking very trendy and comfy all in one!
