OWN and EMBRACE YOUR CURVES!
Each time we look at our bowl of favorite fruits nature reminds us of the beauty in owning and embracing our personal curves!!!
I get such a thrill when I can empower my clients to own their beauty by connecting them with the designers that skillfully enhance their unique and personal style.
Most recently I had the pleasure of assisting a friend referred to me by a long time client and dear friend requesting help with defining her since of style and giving her the tools to own her fierceness!
At BEAU-T BY BLANE we pride ourselves on encouraging our clients to go from being predictable to being original!
Many of us think that baggy, louse, clothing makes you appear smaller when in actuality it makes you look wider which equals larger.
Whereas properly fitted clothing elongate the body and provides a slimming effect.
One of our recent clients expressed a desire to shop at her favorite and familiar destinations, Banana Republic, The Loft, and J Crew. But, during my pre-shop analysis, I discovered that the color palettes for Banana Republic was quite drab, and the earth tones would not work for her.
BEAU-T BY BLANE is all about “Turning Drab Into Fab!” and places much emphasis on the importance of color.
We get such a thrill introducing our clients to new designers that will enhance their overall look. My client was familiar with my suggestion, to check out Anthropologie. But, she wasn’t familiar with Tracy Reese, a female African-American designer who dresses our First Lady M. Obama, and is also my friend. And Tracy loves curves, especially her own, and doesn’t design anything she wouldn’t wear herself!

Stepping into a boutique like Anthropologie could be quite overwhelming visually! But, with my client’s newfound and refined sense of style after our wardrobe consultation she was amazed at how effortlessly it was to navigate with me through the boutique.
This time it was all about color, and we discovered some wonderful dresses, and unique blouses that all carried a huge “WOW FACTOR!”
Kelly and Saudee at Anthropologie in Rockerfeller and David Domangue at J Crew both offered us stellar service bringing us needed sizes, helpful suggestions, and surprising us with items off the floor that were perfectly suited for my client’s needs.
For example, we fell in love with this deep purple (my client’s favorite color & color of the season) silk blouse at J Crew but they no longer had her size. David surprised us with the exact same color in a luscious merino wool pullover sweater that Betty could also wear under her business suiting. We all walked away Winners!
At BEAU-T BY BLANE we only work with point persons that are fully knowledgeable of the collections they represent and like us, can think outside of the box.
Joe Fresh is a great destination for wonderful color and bold prints. Here at the Madison Avenue Flagship store, Kabrina gave us a personal tour of the Fall 2014 collection. Our “Favs” were the made in USA, limited editions straight from the runway.
Ann Taylor Loft has great slacks to compliment any figure and their dresses make sexy comfortable! Zakiya Moore, here at the 1492 Third Avenue and 84th Street location, was very efficient in bringing prime highlights from their latest collection that were perfectly suited for my client’s needs. Eva Bullock and visiting manager, Kathleen Rojas made us feel right at home. And even though we were nearing the closing hour, they offered over the top service and VIP treatment until the very end!
BEAU-T BY BLANE also prides itself on its White Glove approach to service. Our clients carry nothing, fold or hang nothing, button or zip nothing! All of our clients are VIP! We look forward to sharing this luxurious experience with you!
