Since I joined Instagram, I began to follow Shepherd’s Fashions…a group of stylish ladies from Canada who own a boutique in Ottawa I would love to visit. Though they have a successful store front, they also bring a completely new online experience for women like us….in different sizes, shapes, and ages. I always find great style tips, inspiration, and clothing which fit my style adjectives. Since today is the first Friday of October when I usually bring you a style tip for the month, I thought I would share with you where I find so many ideas. Shepherd’s Fashions is more than a shopping site….you will find helpful videos and services offered there.
Shepherd’s Fashions has a seasoned stylist on staff equipped to help women discover their style story…if assistance is needed… and to discover the best fit offered. Katharine is an experienced woman of a certain age and not a young lady just out of college, as many of the retail stylists are. I went through this styling process with Katharine and found it fascinating. First of all, you send a very detailed report of meaurements and photos. The photos show different angles of your figure in an all black outfit standing in front of a mirror. After body shape and sizing is secured, then comes the personality questions to determine your style. I enjoyed this part of the process alot and talking with Katherine about how she surmised that I am a classic person with a dramatic twist. It fit perfectly with my five adjectives to communicate strength, creativity, confidence, youthfulness, and intelligence with my style.
I am using her advice and guidelines as I currently style looks. She has recommended the Sympli. Collections. This is a stylish, fun, comfort line which offers traditional looks, but also, looks with a little panache. You can see their line in the fashion show above. We are all different with different likes and dislikes and working with a stylist like Katherine can help us to pinpoint exactly what we want to say with our wardrobe.
I posted about Shepherd’s Fashions today, because every Friday they do a new Style Tip video, another way their website is so different with a host of videos which are very helpful and enjoyable. I highly recommend you spend time with Shepherd’s Fashion online and subscribe to the videos as well. At the bottom of their website, is a place to subscribe through email. I think you will grow to enjoy them as much as I have. These are inspirational women of all sizes and ages, who help the rest of us to
