How we dress is an expression of how we feel about life and ourselves. It is very powerful and can be used effectively to introduce us to others, and to influence how others perceive or respond to us. In fact, clothing is the most powerful non-verbal tool we possess.” ~ Mary Lou Manlove
I highly recommend Mary Lou Manlove for styling. She has worked with me on two occasions. She helped me shop for clothing when I was pregnant and recently helped me prepare for a professional photo shoot. When I was pregnant, Mary Lou helped me feel like I could look my best even though I had put on a good amount of weight. She went shopping with me and helped me understand the best colors and shapes for me to wear. Before I spent the afternoon with her, I thought she was going to tell me stuff I already knew, but she taught me a lot about what looks good on me and what doesn’t. The things I brought home were enthusiastically approved of by my husband, and I felt confident when I wore them.
This last week she came over to my house and helped me pick clothes for a photo shoot that communicated the messages I wanted to send in the pictures. With her help, I got exactly the looks I wanted.
Mary Lou does closet consultation, personal wardrobe shopping, special event styling and outfit coordination in addition to helping her clients figure out the jewelry that looks best on them. My husband and I both agree that I have benefited greatly from working with Mary Lou.
