Remember that person who pushed you forward when you weren’t quite ready to take the first step? I do. Meet Pam.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
In 2012, we were expats living in Brussels and active members of the Canadian Club. The annual fundraiser was approaching and Pam encouraged me to donate a personal styling session for the live auction. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
My response, ‘uh ummm well — I’m not ready.’ ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
‘Sure you are!’ Pam quipped. Although she didn’t win the àllie la mode auction package that night, she hired a Personal Stylist, I achieved my first client, and we both gained a lifelong friend. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Cheers to you, Pam, for believing in me and bidding on àllie la mode.


Style Story | Meet Pam.

Going for a walk on the beach

My husband, Dave, and I are currently renovating our new home to make it our own.

I always wear a bracelet with a watch; and I have now started making my own bracelets with the beach glass I find on my walks in the morning.

My favorite quote is:
“It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey,” by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

What was your biggest fashion faux-pas?
Going shopping and buying new clothes, only to come home with the same items I already had in my closet.

What is your favorite memory with àllie la mode?
My favorite memory was our first shopping trip together. Allison made shopping easy, stress-free, and fun. She had already found the stores we would visit and the clothes I would try-on. I didn’t have to leave the dressing room to find a difference style or size — she brought the clothes to me. All I had to do was show-up and Allison took care of the rest!

Casual, Comfortable, Relaxed

What first impression do you make?
I am confident even when I am wearing jeans and work boots.

If you could give one piece of advice to your 15-year-old self what would it be?
