I’ll be the first to admit I’m no professional at style. Every now and then I hit it out of the park with a cute outfit, but by no means am I qualified to pick out a cute, coordinated look for my bridal shower (which is this weekend, ahh!).
Enter Little White Dress.
I discovered Lauren, the genius and gorgeous creator, through – where else? – Instagram. She always had the most beautiful photos in soft pinks & golds (two of my wedding colors), and it was clear that what she was saying in her blog posts was true: There simply was no service for brides-to-be looking for styling help for events surrounding their weddings.
For being relatively new to the scene (Lauren worked at Lilly Pulitzer before starting her own business), the process was incredibly professional.
First, Lauren, a bride-to be herself, held a Skype session with me. We discussed everything from jewelry preferences to glam level to whether or not the weather would cooperate with a short dress.
With an idea for my personal style in mind, Lauren sent me this pretty inspiration board:
This is for style inspiration for my outfit, of course – I have no idea what my shower will look like! But she hit the nail on the head, so we decided to move forward using this inspiration board.
Lauren then shopped around for outfits in my price range (which I set prettyyyy low, so I’m impressed!) and sent me these three outfit boards:
Initially, I fell in LOVE with option 1!
Then I found myself eying option 3 a little more. Welllll, I could sub in the shoes from 3, and maybe the bracelet, I thought. But Lauren’s the professional, and I could see the whole look for 3 flowed together so perfectly. I had to choose 3! (I’m not exactly buying everything piece for piece, but I’m basing my outfit around that style.)
This was my first time using a professional stylist, and I have to say I’d do it again. In fact, she’s going to help me with my rehearsal dinner dress, too! Little White Dress was super accommodating throughout the entire process, and offered to swap anything or keep looking if I had reservations about a dress or accessory.
What do y’all think? Which option is your fave?
