New York Personal Stylist Client | Valentina
TOCS attracts clients all over, which is so FUN. But when I found out that our client Valentina lived right here in Brooklyn I knew I had to meet her in person!
Valentina already has incredible personal style. She is the type of client that simply requires help utilizing her entire wardrobe. I wanted to choose outfits for her that were very Valentina.
She is blessed with an incredible body, as you can see. Get to know her below.
Jocelyn: How would you describe your personal style?
Valentina: I would say it's a combo of sportswear with a little bid of edge. I live in sneakers + try to doll it u.
Jocelyn: Who inspires your style?
Valentina: I know it is kinda cliche, but I would have to say Khloe K. I'm girly & hood, but not too much. And definitely add in Leandre Medine from Man Repeller. I love her edginess, I love street style.
Jocelyn: I love that. Khloe K is very almost hood. What is your favorite current trend?
Valentina: My favorite current trend is definitely the choker, no getting me away from them. I love every shape, size, style -- I’m all about them.
Jocelyn: ME TOO. Where do you like to shop?
Valentina: I like to shop second hand. I love older Harley & vintage sports tees, I hunt them down on Ebay & at the Salvation Army. I shop at Consignment Brooklyn - where I work - Buffalo Exchange & Beacons. I try to stay away from fast fashion but it's so hard when it's constantly at your fingertips.
Jocelyn: What do you do at Consignment Brooklyn?
Valentina: I am the pricer at Brooklyn Consignment. I do market research on all of the clothes we sell. I am also the owner -- Eva Dayton's -- assistant.
Jocelyn: Have you ever experienced your style giving you more confidence?
Valentina: I feel the most confident in high waisted jeans, a crop top and a pair of heels. It gives me the absolute most confidence because of how it makes my shape look. I transitioned from being heavier 3-4 years ago and although I still had confidence, my style has transitioned to a classier look that feels so much better.
Jocelyn: How much time do you spend getting ready every morning?
Valentina: Oh gosh. Well I spend about 30 min doing hair and makeup, and I'm thinking of what to wear the whole time. Then I'd say I spend up to an hour trying on clothes. I definitely try on multiple things every morning.
Jocelyn: How did you find out about The On Call Stylist?
Valentina: I found TOCS through the popular page. I was looking for stylists to follow and TOCS kept coming up on my feed! You had done a contest for a free virtual styling session. I entered the contest and I remember the day I won I had strep throat and it completely made my day!
Jocelyn: That is so awesome! I am glad we made you feel better. How would you say our session helped you?
Valentina: TOCS was very helpful in cutting time out in the morning. Our 45 minutes session gave me so many new ideas of how I could use my clothes. For example, instead of wearing black leggings to work you helped me see I could wear black leather leggings with my Rangers jerseys. It gave me more ideas of how to use what I have already to fit my style, and how all my clothes are transition.
