Beth Rubin-Gabor


Beth tries on clothes at LOFT

Beth was looking for looks that enhance her relaxed, creative and fun personality (a.k.a. “wow”).  She has a triangle body shape, which means her shoulders and bust are proportionally smaller than her hips and seat.

For our shopping appointment, we met at LOFT where I pre-shopped pieces and outfits that would work with her body type and colors.  Over the course of about an hour, she tried on a series of outfits that helped to create a visual balance and accentuate her features.

The first look gives her an everyday look, the second look gives her an idea for a flattering dress style and the third look is perfect for meeting with prospects and clients.

Beth’s feedback: Sasha exceeded my expectations. She helped me understand what clothing works well on my body type and encouraged me to select more color flattering items (no black). Sasha’s communication pre and post our appointment was impressive! I loved my hand written thank you note. I would highly recommend Sasha. She was professional, patient and creative.

Teresa Thomas-Carroll

Meet Teresa Thomas-Carroll

As an inverted triangle body type, Teresa is the opposite of Beth, with hips that are proportionally narrower than her shoulders.  We shopped at Macy’s with a special focus on Karen Kane, which Teresa has discovered fits her well.

The outfits above are a sampling of what she tried on with the goal of giving her options for networking amongst peers in smart casual outfits.

The first look is a put together casual look, the second look is a professional and tailored look and the third look works for transitioning into cooler weather.

Teresa’s feedback: Sasha selected summer professional styles that were a fantastic fit for my sense of style and budget. She spent time before our appointment learning how she could best provide service and maintained great communication during and after our session. She had outfits pre-selected for me to try on and I was ecstatic to see that she had shopped the clearance racks, too. I appreciated her honest and expert opinion and her help in narrowing down items to those that had the most function and bang for the buck. I left with a stylish and affordable selection of attire to extend and freshen up my wardrobe.

Kris was looking for more sophisticated options in colors other than black.  And that is exactly what we found.  We shopped Herberger’s for the outfits pictured above that show off her body shape, which is a subtle hourglass/not quite a rectangle.

While black is actually a good color on Kris, there are plenty of other colors and patterns she can and should wear more of while keeping her already balanced shoulders/bust and hips/seat in check.

The first two looks are appropriate for meeting with clients and the third look is excellent for a happy hour event this fall.

Kris’ feedback: Thank you for your expertise – you are the best.

It was a privilege and delight to work with each one of these women and help them find outfits that fit, flatter and achieve their unique style goals. I am thankful to each for allowing me to publish their photos and for sharing such wonderful feedback about their experiences.

And don’t forget – if you’re in need of help with your business brand, expanding your network or freeing up time, these women would love to help you.
