Tired of keeping up with fashion trends? Want to find staple pieces that'll last a lifetime? Turn your wardrobe from drab to fab with a personal styling and shopping session with the team at Coco + Mischa.
As soon as we stepped into Coco + Mischa
, we could feel the love that went into the shop. Each wall was filled with beautiful product - Vintage bags, locally made pottery, handcrafted jewelry (we could go on like this for days). It was hard to get the hearts out of our eyes to actually browse around! From Meredith Anne White’s
art covering the walls to the hand-selected product placed perfectly on the tables, this shop has character and charm out the wazoo as do the people who (wo)man it all day.
Shelly Searcy manages the shop with incredible enthusiasm. We were instantly greeted with her bright smile and incredible vibes. Shelly’s side hustle as a stylist
is a no brainer. From first sight, the girl’s got style and an impeccable understanding of color and shape. She wears her bright and radiant personality and wants the same for you! Shelly, alongside the Coco + Mischa team, is now offering an in-store personal styling session to help curate a conscious (and fabulous) closet!
Let’s face it - The “fast fashion” market isn’t sustainable at all. Trends are hard to keep up with and mass-market retailers are constantly making new things for us to buy only for most of those items to end up in the trash in a few years. The Coco + Mischa team prides themselves on being a slow fashion retailer offering vintage pieces and ethically produced clothing that’ll last a lifetime.
So how does this personal shopping and styling work? We sent local musician, Casey Harper
, to work with Shelly for the day and here’s how it went:
- Before even getting to the store, Shelly sent Casey a short questionnaire asking her for sizes, style preferences, and what kind of pieces she was looking for. A blazer and vintage denim became the focus.
- The day came, and Shelly organized a rack full of pieces she wanted Casey to try. Upon her arrival, Casey was escorted into the fitting room with a plethora of outfits to try on.
- Like any good dressing room montage
, Casey was in and out in different outfits from the rack. Some items didn’t fit quite right, but Shelly was quick to find solution.
At the end of the 1.5hr session, Casey walked away with a few pieces and, thanks to Shelly, knew exactly how to style them.
“It was like shopping with your best friend if your best friend was a fashion guru,” says Harper of her experience. “I feel like the next time I come in looking for something, Shelly will know exactly what to put in my fitting room that’ll fit my style and my body type.”
There ya have it! Whether you’re looking for an entirely new wardrobe, or need help finding a few staple items that’ll last a lifetime, Shelly and the Coco + Mischa team have you covered.
