Tara Luizzi of Tara Styles DC

We spend a lot of time analyzing data, running multiple appointments in a day, and developing brands for our clients and business partners. This is second nature, and ultimately first and foremost in our brains. Well, have you ever given yourself the same care and attention when it comes to branding YOURSELF? Sure we make a conscious effort when getting dressed in the morning, but who has time to think about seasonal staples and color blocking when we have kids, husbands, and/or other jobs that require our time and mental space

September’s WWPR event sought to bridge that gap between styling necessity and style trendsetting. What colors are cutting edge? What shape and cut is best with today’s looks? What closet staples are on their way out? These were just some of the questions we had answered at Georgetown’s crowd pleaser and hip girl about town shop, Madewell.  It saddens me to say that indeed leggings are on their way out (say it isn’t so!).

Tara Luizzi of Tara Styles DC was our host and fashion expert for the night. Having been heavily involved in the fashion industry for a number of years, she was able to style and present a series of looks that could be worn for work as well as play. We learned that the trick to keeping up with the changing looks, while on a budget, was to keep your basics and play off of new trends with key accessories. Shoes, jewelry, and scarves can update a look and confuse people into thinking that what you are wearing is entirely new.

Exposed brick walls, fruit and cheese, and racks and racks of clothing set the stage to this most informative meeting. As President of WWPR Kendra Kojcsich was able to work in concert with Tara, and the staff at Madewell to give us two amazing deals after the presentation. Not only did we have access to Tara’s personal time and styling advice while shopping, but we had a special 20% off promotion on new items up to $120.00 and a 50% off option on all sale items. What more could a business professional want? Style all wrapped up in a tantalizing deal!
