A friend of mine in the fashion industry recently told me that she thinks personal style (your clothes, your accessories, your hair, etc.) can often times say more about you than words. In her opinion, your style, and the way in which you present yourself to the world, can provide someone with a lot more insight into who you are, how you feel, and what you’re about.
Last week, Emily and I had the opportunity to talk about this idea with someone who uses the word “Style” on a daily basis: NYC Stylist: Liz Teich. After taking a look at our own sense of style, I (Rachel) realized that I often fall back on my go-to comfy outfit – jeans, flat boots and a striped shirt. As for Emily, she likes wearing dresses but finds that she wears the same type of dress all the time. Hm I wonder what that says about us? While we weren’t looking for a drastic change, we wanted Liz to help reinvigorate our wardrobe and open our eyes to new looks that were easy to wear and affordable while still allowing us to feel like ourselves.
When we initially discussed this project with Liz, we knew that we wanted her style tips to benefit you guys, our readers, as well. We decided to film everything so that you could hear what Liz had to say herself. We were also lucky enough to work with an awesome videographer, Joe Pioggia and Makeup Artist, Allison Brooke to help create the first of what (we hope!) will be many videos called, Style Stories.
The premiere video (which we’ll post on the site in a few weeks) will showcase our shopping trip with Liz to TJ Maxx where she’ll introduce us to new outfits and provide helpful tips and inspirational style ideas. We also shot a make-up tutorial video with Allison Brooke where she’ll talk about her top make-up tricks and favorite products of the moment for easy, simple looks.
Below are some behind-the-scenes photos from our shoot. We can’t wait for you to see the video and to hear what Liz and Allison have to say. Stay tuned!
