I am happy to bring you this guest post from local fashion stylist, Christina Cafua.
I know Christina as a neighbor, mom and a striking woman. While her personal style has always been eye-catching, she only recently turned her passion for fashion into a career. In a “do what you love” moment of brilliance, Christina began working as a fashion stylist at dresscode in Andover. For every outfit she models and every pic she posts, Christina makes me want to step up my look.
Please enjoy this guest post from Christina in which she shares her journey and some great fashion options for spring.
Do What you Love – Becoming a Fashion Stylist
by Christina Cafua
For many years, I understood something…all women are beautiful. Taking care of myself is natural to me and I believe every woman can and should be well put together. As it often happens to a girl, I frequently hear, “my wardrobe is full, but I have nothing to wear.”
It became clear to me that I don’t just want to dress nicely myself, but I want to pass this knowledge on to make other women feel beautiful and amazing. It feels good to see joy in their eyes as a result of my work.
So, I turned down my office job and decided to begin working as a fashion stylist at dresscode boutique in Andover, MA. Dresscode is owned by Amy Finegold, who is such an incredible woman. I also enjoy volunteering at Uncommon Threads, a nonprofit boutique-style clothing program that empowers survivors of domestic violence and women in need through clothing.
I’ll be honest, making the decision to change my life wasn’t easy. But when you decide to do what you love, and what you find most interesting, nothing can stop you. Now, I plan my own time while boosting my clients’ image and bringing beauty into the world. At the end of each day, you need to feel fabulous. My goal is for my customers to have fun, but more importantly, to make them look and feel amazing. A lot of times, all you need is a small push to help you feel confident about trying something different. I offer the following services: assessment of individual style, wardrobe assessment and shopping support.
