This week I was at home with the kids when I get a text from a friend and fellow latina mamá Nikki that said “I’m having a fashion crisis. ¡Ayudame! I have a job interview tomorrow. PT teaching position. Help me with ideas for an appropriate outfit — my selections are limited. I am stuck in SAHM fashion land.” HER EXACT WORDS. (FYI: SAHM is Stay At Home Mom)
What did I do? I actually JUMPED up in my air, responded saying “¡Si, voy! I will be there in ONE hour.”
I packed up the babes, finished my conference call, grabbed a few Stella & Dot statement necklaces, put a make up bag together for her with samples I have with nail polish, BB Cream, blush, eyeshadow and lip gloss to make sure she had a fresh look, grabbed a pair of burgundy pumps, a few dresses and I was off! I actually got a rush from it — I KNOW HOW SHE FEELS and I wanted to help her out.
Nikki has a two year old son and a 6 month old daughter, so this was a major change. Sometimes it takes fresh eyes to look in your closet and give you an honest opinion. We set out a pair of trousers, one skirt and two dresses. In the end a dress was the better choice and we worked from there and all from her closet.
There is more to this story and I have a great feature with Nikki talking about her pre-baby fashion and what changes she will be making, along with a few of her favorite products.
Stay tuned for that but in the meantime I couldn’t contain my excitement and I just HAD to give you sneak peek at Nikki’s final look — classy, professional and ¡muy a la moda!
What do you think? Hot mami, right?!
