About a year ago, right around Christmas in 2009, I attended a fundraiser that raffled off many prizes. One of the prizes being given away was actually for two hours with a professional celebrity stylist ---- Guess who won that prize!
You guessed it, me. About a year ago, I knew nothing about fashion, nor did I care much about it. In fact, after winning this prize, I seriously considered just giving it away to someone who'd both enjoy, and appreciate it more than me.
Anyway, after thinking about it for a couple of months, and realizing that I could probably use the fashion advice myself, I finally called up Sam Saboura (the stylist). Keep in mind this prize doesn't mean that I would be getting any free clothes, just that I'd go shopping with the stylist, and he'd advise me in terms of what I should be buying.
After talking with him on the phone, we both agreed that instead of going shopping, it'd be best for him to just come over to my apartment and we'd go through my entire closet.
With so much stuff I never wear, I thought it would make more sense to organize --- keep what's still good, donate/get rid of the rest.
Then I had the idea to videotape the entire session with the stylist, and he agreed to be on camera. So Sam (along with his assistant, Haley), came by my place one Saturday afternoon. « less
