Her closet edit was a Westchester dream – scenic background and tons of “aha” moments! As an OB/GYN living in the ‘burbs, she felt like her style didn’t matter to her so much. She wears her lab coat at work and spends her evenings on mommy and wife duty. But, she signed up for her Cepi Style closet edit because “she has nothing” and “hates shopping because nothing ever fits her”. The morning of her closet edit was a bit nerve-wracking for her. She called for re-assurance. “I’m nervous but yet excited!” If this sounds like a soap opera, it is! We all have soap operas playing in our heads especially when any ounce of vulnerability sets in (a big reason why we spend so much time vetting our stylists)!
What was so beautiful about her closet edit was her! When she tried on a few of her go-to outfits, it was apparent to Ashley (her stylist) that she was simply wearing a size too big on top. She quickly gave her tips on what silhouettes would work best for her body type. Once she tried on clothing from the Cepi Style rack, she said “hmmm… maybe with this I don’t need to wear my lab coat…I look great!” Claps from the invisible crowd… We stayed in her budget, found great pieces for her beautiful, pear shape and upgraded her winter boot options. We also veered from her obsession with black – ever so gently.
She called the next day to let us know that some of the PCAs asked her if she lost weight and kept admiring her all day long. Fun times at hospital!
Here are some inspirations for you from her closet edit (and of course, many are black)! This Wolford turtleneck is great for under skirts and pants. Aquatalia boots are made from treated Italian leather that makes them waterproof (possible answer to Hunter boots?). This Tibi skirt just brightens anyone’s day. Both Tibi skirts are a great fit. The Rag & Bone Newbury boots now come in a beautiful calf hair and still maintain the superior comfort they are known for. And, last but not least – these Berkshire tights LAST months without runs!
