What a fun event! Between Kim's signature bubbly drink and so many old and new friends coming together this was the perfect setting to talk about our wardrobes. Gilda came with a beautiful sample closet and tons of good advice for all of us. She reminded us that a good first impression is essential when you first meet a person. Clothing can help with that. Gilda urged us to think of how we want to portray ourselves. Trustworthy! Smart! Responsible! These were some of our answers that lead to the questions of: Are we portraying that now? How can we achieve it?
Gilda has helped a lot of different clients. Having worked with such a diverse group of people, she was able to give us a few specific tips for our own work wardrobe. It's a wardrobe that can go from office to a night out in the city with friends.
Some of the key pieces she recommended were:
1. A nice white button down shirt.
2. Black pants that fit well.
3. A nice simple blazer.
4. A trench coat.
5. A little black dress.
6. And so many others.
She helped us review how our closets are currently structured and what key pieces we might be missing that could make it even better!
Gilda also mentioned that a lot of people gift her styling appointments/advice to other people. (Husbands to wives, daughters to mothers, etc.) I think anyone in the NAWIC Boston Chapter would be delighted to receive her services as a gift! In case anyone is wondering what to get for your next gift, here is a helpful HINT!
Thank you to Everyone who came to the event and thank you Gilda for a wonderful night of style tips!
