Mommy Makeover Contest Winner || Recap

The style klazit, mommy makeover winner, atlanta personal stylist 

Today I'm excited to introduce you to Carolyn Abuajah, the mom who won my Mother's Day Mommy Makeover Giveaway.  Prizes included a professional style session from The Style Kläzit, hair styling (worth up to a $100 service) by Colour Personal Hairstyling Service, an outfit (worth up to $200) from Back By Popular Demand, makeup session (worth up to $85) from The Glamatory Makeup store and a photoshoot (worth up to $75) by my awesome photographer KVisuals to capture the moment.  And someone heard about what I was doing and sponsored a massage session.   

One of the nomination requirements included providing a reason why the nominee should win the contest.  Carolyn's reasoning touched my heart and was part of the main reason why she was selected to win the makeover.  Not only is she a single mother, she's a medical student.  How admirable is that?!  

It wasn't until after meeting with Carolyn that she shared a little bit more about her journey.  During the style session I was asking her about her current wardrobe and that led to her telling me how she lost almost everything she had during Hurricane Maria. The hurricane destroyed her home, school and ultimately the entire country of Dominica. 

Carolyn and her son didn't get evacuated until 4 days after the natural disaster hit, so you can only imagine the struggle she had to endure to maintain and survive. By the time she and her son got rescued, the only items she had were their passports, her laptop, cell phone and a few clothing items.

The school relocated to a boat docked off the shore of St. Kitts and with the option to either sit the semester out or finish it; she choose to finish out the semester (and live) on the boat.  She's currently working diligently to become a physician so that she can give back to the community.  Her son being her fuel, she's determined to accomplish her goal. Congratulations Carolyn!

 *Due to the weather the day of the shoot, Carolyn decided on a hair unit instead of the style from Colour.

5 Ways To Wear White After Labor Day

If you haven't already, check out my white after Labor day look here.  I thought that since I was brave enough to wear white; it would be helpful to offer you some style tips on wearing your whites as well...

- For starters if you're too scared to pull off white-white, try off-white, winter white, cream or ivory.

- If you do decide to wear white, be sure to chose a fall/winter fabric. i.e. leather, wool, fur, cashmere, suede

- You can pair your look with fall/winter accessories.  i.e. a wool fedora or a scarf, gold or silver statement pieces...

- White jeans can be worn year round.  They can be teamed up with a moto jacket, a blazer, a sweater or a turtle neck.  A nice boot or bootie, maybe even a pointed toe flat, would be an excellent finish to your look.

- A leather bottom (pant, skirt, shorts, etc...) with a white top - be it blazer, sweater, shirt would be really dope.

The goal is to keep the look clean and stylish.  Get creative and to have fun.  Make sure to stick with the best shade of white that compliment's your skin tone.  Always dress according to your body type not your size.  When you look good, you feel good!

The White After Labor Day Rule

Okay! I will admit it.  It took me a minute to wrap my mind around wearing white after labor day.  In my neck of the woods, white after labor day was blasphemy.  I often wondered why it was such a faux pas, but the only explanation I got was; you're just not suppose to.  After a little research I'm still not completely sure why that ever became a fashion don't.  Whatever the case, this fashion offense doesn't apply today.  Check out my white after labor day look...
