STOP HIDING YOUR BEAUTY!
Oct 26th, 2016
I can’t remember when I first met Phoenix through Tango. What a special name, right?!Well, Phoenix is a really cool person just as her name. She is the mom of 3 kids, a dancer, musician, skateboarder, and research at OHSU. Her typical outfit is loose fit pants and a comfortable black or neutral color top with sneakers. She usually put her hair in a bun. In my mind, she successfully hides her beauty!! 🙂
Since I see Phoenix in Tango from time to time, I have a pretty good understanding of her style even though people do dress a bit differently for tango. My immediate instinct of styling after my 1 hour session of checking her closet: add more colors, patterns, or more fitted styles dresses or pencil skirt. Those options give her a pulled together look that will that complements her natural beauty . Luckily, Phoenix was very excited by my ideas!
In this first look, we aim to create more of a professional look. Phoenix can wear this style to work and still sensibly showcase her nice body shape. I had Phoenix wear a blue dress and then lay over a white short trench coat. I accessorized her with a pearl necklace to balance with the big earrings.
In this second look, I wanted to show Phoenix something totally new that she had never tried. Something very modern. I had her wear a colorful Tory Burxh knit dress, paired with a burberry trench coat and two color toned high heel boots. I finished it off by adding a big statement necklace.
