This past weekend I threw my first-ever styling party. I honestly didn’t know what to expect, but we all had a blast trying on clothes and learning how we can make the current trends fit with our personal style and body type with Margaret “Mags” Mocko from MagSoul (in downtown Hickory for all you local readers).
I don’t know about you, but I don’t always know how to make current trends work for me, especially if they’re a little out of my comfort zone. I always think I’d love to be able to pull off something like that as I pin a thousand different looks to my Pinterest boards, yet I haven’t had the know-how to make the looks I love work for me. That’s where Mags came in…
Like our own personal stylist, Mags got to the bottom of our fashion concerns and gave us the courage to try some looks that maybe we might have been wary of in the past. She showed us how to layer/block our outfit correctly to bring out our best features (and minimize problem areas) and accessorize correctly for our age and body type.
After she schooled us in style, we spent the rest of the evening running in and out of the three “dressing” rooms I’d set up in the house, comparing outfits, and making ourselves be brave by trying on (and keeping) some looks that we’d been too scared to try in the past but now knew how to make our own.
Take a look…
I wished I’d snapped more pics of everyone trying things on, but I was busy trying some things as well, so just imagine a fun shopping trip with 12 of your friends in the comfort of your own home.
The thing we all loved about the clothes MagSoul carries is that each of the pieces are chosen by Mags with her customers in mind, so you’ll find things in her store that you don’t see everywhere else. Pieces as unique and fabulous as each of us! You’ll be seeing a lot of the pieces I got (for free for hosting by the way!) in upcoming Wardrobe Wednesdays, so stay tuned…
If you live in or near the Hickory area, I encourage you to host one of the Soul Sister Styling Parties with MagSoul. They are super-easy to host, so much fun to enjoy, and it’s a great way to get trendy clothing for free. If you don’t live nearby, you can always stop by MagSoul’s online store (shipping is free for 5lbs. and under).
Mags is offering a special deal for all you Budget Maven readers: Visit the boutique on Fridays and use the code Budget Maven to receive $5 off of every item you purchase (promotion is in-store only for now).
Happy Tuesday, everyone!
