Styling Mama

Yesterday I had the pleasure of arranging a personal shopping session for my mom with the incredible Victor Rogers of Victorious, Inc. Image Consulting. Mama Whitlock is in town for an HR conference all week, so what better time to set her up with a pro to help edit and update her wardrobe!

We met at Macy's Lenox Square and had an absolute ball. Just from a style questionnaire and a few cell phone photos, Victor was able to gauge my mom's style preferences and pulled about 30-40 amazing pieces for her to choose from...and she loved just about every one!

Now, let me give you a little background on my mama's style. She loves pantsuits. In black and grey. Just about everything in her closet is black and grey. No, seriously. Walking into her closet is like experiencing a lunar eclipse--everything is dark. Therefore, Victor's main challenge was to find her lots of dresses, preferably ones in bright colors.

. . . And what a great job he did!

Here are a few photos from yesterday's session:

If you're looking for plus-size clothing, Macy's has an AMAZING selection. Brands like Jones New York, Lauren by Ralph Lauren, Elie Tahari and Jessica Simpson all feature fantastic offerings in lots of sizes, fits and colors. Here are some of my fave summer dresses found in the woman's wear section:










I even got in on the shopping action!



All in all, it was a great experience. If you live in the metro Atlanta area and you're looking for a talented stylist, check out my new friend Victor Rogers. Visit his Website HERE, and make sure you like him on Facebook!

  1. I loved most of the dresses...especially that black one, the blue and green floral one, and the strappy maxi. I'll take them all and the platform sandals. Thanks! Smooches!

    1. The blue/green floral is CCs favorite, too! She tried talking me out of the platform sandals. But I think I'm going back to get them. They were on clearance!

  2. Great idea! & I have to agree with the B/G floral dress! It looks very nice on her!

    1. I agree! Daddy asked, "Is Victor going to make he throw away the rest of her clothes like on 'What Not to Wear'?" LOL!

    2. Before she throws them away, I'd like to sort through them first! One man's trash....

  4. Shopping with Mrs. ("Mama") Whitlock was so much fun! I haven't seen her other clothes, so I can't tell her to throw them away (like Stacey and Clinton). But, I get the feeling that black and gray won't be her first choice any more:)
