Do you love seeing scarves on other women but struggle to style them yourself? Wish you could belt your outfits but feel like you’re missing the mark? Wonder if your jewelry is getting lost, or overpowering your outfits? Have no idea how to make tights work for your wintry ensembles? Yes to all or any? Let’s hang out. I can totally help.
The Already Pretty Accessorization Workshop will provide a primer on the basics of wearing and styling common accessories. This three-hour intensive workshop will include demonstrations, follow-along exercises, partner work, Q&A, and – time allowing – individual style consultations on key accessorization questions. Although I’ve written extensively about accessorization techniques on my blog, I know for a fact that seeing demos and building muscle memory around these practices is far more helpful than reading about them could ever be! With that in mind, we’ll cover scarves, belts, jewelry, hosiery, and handbags and touch upon hats, gloves, and glasses, helping you build the skills you need to work these accessories into everyday wear.
The first workshop will take place on Sunday, February 9, 2014, at the Bibelot on Grand Avenue in St. Paul. Newsletter subscribers got first crack at registration, but now it’s open to all! I hope to run these approximately once per month, if possible, and will travel them around to Chicago, San Francisco, New York, and Boston throughout the year.
The workshop is $80 for three hours of intensive accessorization fun, which is less than 1/3 the cost of a style consult. AND! All attendees will receive a free, signed copy of my book or $20 off any personal style consulting service! Plus a takeaway summary of topics covered and access to online resources.

(Attendees of the St. Paul workshop will receive 10% off any purchases from the Bibelot, where the workshop will be held!)
There are only 10 spots available for each workshop, so don’t delay. I’ll keep you updated as future workshops become available!
