I try to visit the Lorraine Motel & the National Civil Rights Museum once a year when I travel to Memphis.  Its not for the faint of heart even as an adult.  I actually think it hits me different each time I visit.  


It’s a refresher of how far we have come but just how much more ground we have to plow to just to be recognized for our good works.  Happy Friday y’all!  Make YOUR Dreams Happen!  ūüíč

Why hire a Stylist:  Reason # 10. You’ve recently transitioned into a new career or position and you know it’s time to step up your style game at the office. 
This means daily office style but also weekend style as your are out & about on the weekends as well.  You are a brand & it’s always positive to pay attention to the details even when you are not in the office/professional setting.

Yesterday was a test for me. I always try to operate with a spirit of excellence & professionalism however we all have daily test.  



When I rebranded my company in 2012 from Bridal Opulence to Opulent Couturier it was specific & strategic.  I have always loved style & fashion but I also have a passion for events.  The name Couturier crosses multiple lines and also can fit in many categories. When I work with personal style clients & bridal style clients, my ultimate goal is to create an experience at the end of the day.  Especially the day of an event or style session.  It’s personal & my expectations are high when I am hired to deliver a concierge experience.  


So back to yesterday…I pulled out my “white gloves” while inspecting a garment for an OOT client that is being customized.  The designer was taken aback with my inspection process.  I firmly believe in inspecting garments before presenting them to a client.  My time is money but also valuable so I don’t like to revisit things if I can help it.  One & done…Make it Happen.  



We live in a microwave society (get it done quick)  however that does not excuse brushing over or letting lack luster quality get a pass.  Yes there is a deadline but quality & experience count as well.  I never settle but are we that busy that we stop caring about quality?  #ThinkingandTypingOutLoud #CreateExperiences #Style #iCare

3.  I travel size bottle 
4.  Cotton rounds or pads.  
Add half oil & half witch hazel to the bottle.  Shake it up because oil + liquids separate.  This solution even removes waterproof mascara.
