Drowning In a Sea oF Blue

Spent a day with a client drowning in a sea of blue. I had never seen so many shades of blue in one wardrobe! My client, a beautiful 50-year-old women, recently divorced,reentering the work force and recovering from the after-math of hurricane Sandy (her home was devastated by the storm). With over $200,000 in storm damage, my client could not afford a whole new wardrobe and was looking for help to re-work what she already owned. Her typical uniform, jeans, a blue top, and blue or tan shoes! My recomendations…add pops of color with accessories…shoes, scarves, belts, handbags and invest in one great jacket that would work with both work and casual attire.
