Stacy London — Down to Earth Stylist!
Sometimes I get to do some pretty cool things, and meet incredible people! That was the case this past weekend, when I had the opportunity to be part of the VIP group who had a special breakfast, received swag bags, be first in line to be ‘styled’ by a fashion stylist (evidently, I DO need to show I have a waist), made up by a makeup artist, (they recommended the plumping lip gloss which left my lips tingling for the next 3o minutes), then seated in the front row of a ‘fashion talk’ by Stacy London of TLC’s What Not to Wear, Laura Cassidy of Seattle Metropolitan Magazine, and Krystal Lechner, makeup diva and Creative Director from FabTurn magazine. I’d love to say (nonchalantly, of course) — just another day in the life, but that would be so far removed from my day-to-day operations, normally spent in front of my computer!
Here’s the highlight — I actually got to conduct a one-on-one interview with Stacy London! She’s awesome. Totally down to earth. Not a diva. Just someone who has found her niche helping primarily women, discover how to dress better, gain self-confidence, and become their best selves — not a cookie cutter version from the latest fashion trends. Now, I don’t have the link yet to the interview, or any of the photos, but you can bet I’ll be posting them as soon as I get them.
Many of you know, in addition to my PR/Communications company, I serve as the Executive Director of The Springboard Academy (we’re transitioning from GoGirl Academy). That’s how this opportunity came about. Terry Henderson of FabTurn Magazine recognized that our philosophy of giving people the tools to become their best selves totally aligns with what Stacy is doing. Talk about a mind-meld with her. We’re on the same mission, although ours encompasses far more than fashion! We want people to have the skills, know-how and presence to be able to move forward with confidence and be their best!
Here’s the other cool thing — I’m all about connecting people. Relationships make the world go round and that’s especially true in the working world. One of our GGA students, Janet Spangler, a stylist herself, and founder of Colors Made Easy, had the opportunity to meet Stacy with me, and might actually become Stacy’s first Seattle Stylist for Hire. We’re all about relationships and meeting people, and connecting them when it makes sense to do so! I’ll be posting the links and photos as soon as I can.
In the meantime — I’ll also be trying to dress just a little snappier with more flair, inspired by both Stacy and Janet.
