Weekly Reads and Finds

A white background with 24 items that I have caught my attention this week.

One | Two | Three | Four | Five | Six | Seven | Eight | Nine | Ten | Eleven | Twelve | Thirteen | Fourteen | Fifteen | Sixteen | Seventeen | Eighteen | Nineteen | Twenty | Twenty-one | Twenty-two | Twenty-three | Twenty-four

Okay, I have been thinking a lot about this, so please bear with me if it sounds convoluted. I am trying to figure out the logistics in my head.

My teacher suggested that we start to offer our services in whichever way we are trying to work in the field.

For most in the class that means looking to find jobs starter level jobs as stylists for tv, film, commercials, and print/magazines.

That isn’t where I want to go with this, my goal is to work one on one with women in trying to help them rediscover (or discover) their style.

So I have been thinking of starting off by offering virtual personal shopping time.

This would be for those that are looking for something specific and just not know where to start or are overwhelmed, frustrated, or those that just plain hate to shop.

I was thinking of maybe doing various levels depending on how much you wanted sourced (1 Item? 2-3? 4-5 pieces. Still figuring this part out), and maybe even moving up to a personalized capsule wardrobe, work wardrobe, or packing list that would fit your needs entirely.

It would involve various levels of email correspondence while we were determined your needs, likes, wants, and preferences.

Also, your geographic area so I can find items that are easy for you to get.

Maybe even a WhatsApp account so that we could have an ongoing dialogue while working through the process if you need guidance, opinions, or advice.

Since my audience is predominantly outside of Canada, I think that this would be a good way to open these up to anyone outside my region.

Then I will source what you are looking for and get back to you with some picks/ideas that I felt fulfilled those needs.

Possible even secondhand sources if you are looking for something very specific and don’t mind secondhand.

So this concept is basically what I have been doing here for the last 8 years or so, but it would be tailored specifically to you as a client.

One of the problems that I can think of is that there is only me, so I would be limited into how many I could take on at once.

Not that I am expecting a line-up 😉

Anyway, I’m still working on getting the Vintage Shmintage secondhand shop running, plus keeping everything rolling on here.

I am going to spend some time this weekend figuring out how to add Shopify to my website, and then get a products and services page set up where the list of services that I will offer will be shown.

Turnaround time will vary depending on how it goes.

Then I will go from there.

I hate having to figure this all out on my own.

  1. I’m hyped AF. Been following your blog and insta for forever and wished you’d offered a service like that. Helpful for your neurotypical readers who can be overwhelmed by wardrobe choices

    • Thank you so much. It is listed under the Products and Services header in the top menu under the Services option. I might have products like e-guides out at some point as well. Everything is in Canadian funds so depending where you are located the change rate can work out in your favour. I figured that since I am now wrapping up school that would be a good time to begin 🙂
