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.
Currently lives in:
I start each day by:
Going for a walk on the beach
I spend Monday – Friday:
My husband, Dave, and I are currently renovating our new home to make it our own.
My style icon is:
My favorite accessory is:
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 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!
