Maybe you don't need a makeover but your closet does! Do you wear the same outfits over and over again? Do you have clothes that you like but don't know how to wear? I can help you find new ways of wearing what you already have, and you don't have to buy a thing!
The philosophy of Verabelle is to find new ways to use what has already been put out into the world, to honor the abundance of what we already have, and find ways to bring life to it again. I repurpose and redesign vintage finds for my clothing line, Verabelle. A Closet Makeover is a way of bringing that DIY spirit to you, to help you find ways to reuse the "old."
You've got mail! Here's what you'll receive in your post-makeover packet to help you with your new looks.
A Closet Makeover from Verabelle includes... - a detailed look at your current wardrobe, outfits, and organization system, including clothing and accessories - photos of at least 4 new outfits, using your own clothing and accessories, concentrating on styles and looks that you need the most - hanger tags that will help you easily match up other looks - suggestions on how to update and alter select pieces from your wardrobe - a shopping list for possible wardrobe additions (and a list of what not to buy!) - a thorough cleaning out of what needs to go, with a donation to Goodwill and your tax-deductible receipt included - an invitation to a clothing swap, where you'll get to rummage through clothing from other clients and take home new looks for free
And if you want, you can also get... - custom clothing redesigns with Verabelle - a personal thrifting trip with designer, Amanda Aileen's, trained eye - Sew-It-Yourself packets, do-dads, and embellishments that can help you update pieces from your wardrobe (I'll bring a toolbox for your own redos!)
In Other Words...
"The past few years I had gotten in the habit of hiding behind dark-colored, very oversized clothing. Instead of hiding myself, though, I ended up hiding myself plus about 20 imaginary pounds it looked like I carried under all that fabric.
"Verabelle came in and gave me a very honest assessment of my closet and what I was doing right and what I was doing wrong. By taking away clothes that did not fit or that were way too big, I was left with cute, more colorful, and age-appropriate pieces to work with. After clearing away the old, Amanda then came in and mixed and matched the Verabelle-approved garments and put together full head-to-toe combinations. "Verabelle's closet makeover has made me feel a million times better about myself, and friends as far away as Sweden have even commented on how cute I look in facebook pictures in my 'new look' before I even tell them about Verabelle's amazingly magical transformations. "If you need a complete closet redo like I did, or even if you just need some help clearing out the old and putting together new combinations and figuring out what pieces you can add to rev-up an old outfit, I highly recommend hiring Verabelle to do a closet makeover for you. And if you have a friend that you'd like to help out but havent had the heart to tell her, why not go in with a few others and get that friend a makeover. From experience, I can honestly say that she will be thanking you for years to come. "Move over Stacy and Clinton - here comes Verabelle!!"
