From My Big Eyes – The Way I See It
I can remember growing up in Alabama watching my mother hand sew my clothes. She not only sewed clothes for me, but also for others who made special requests. I have vivid memories of her sitting in her sewing room late at night working to finish countless orders. She was so dedicated and passionate about her craft. I used to go to stores with her to select various fabrics and patterns. Mom’s talent and skills spoke for itself because she has a creative side and an eye for pretty things. Fortunately, some of her visions of beauty & fashion have rubbed off on me and my love of fashion continues to run through my veins passionately.
Over the last few months, I have had the great opportunity to participate in Midnight Velvet’s Extraordinary Women’s Campaigns. Midnight Velvet is an online fashion and home retail outlet. Their products are tailored for the extraordinary woman. The fashions are unique and eye-catching. Midnight Velvet gives you a little something extra, and out of the ordinary. I enjoy wearing extraordinary styles because I’m an Extraordinary Woman!
The Midnight Velvet Campaigns were centered around dresses, tops, and accessories. Look at the steps I used to prepare for each campaign:
- I was provided choices from each category (dresses, tops, and accessories), then I had to select the item which I thought would be most appealing worn on me.
- Once I made my selection, Midnight Velvet kindly shipped the item out for an immediate fitting. If any problems occurred with sizing, an exchange/ return was done for a different size. Fortunately, I didn’t need to do any returns, as the choices I made were the right fit and on point.
- Next, it was time to schedule a photo shoot wearing the selected item and then choosing 3-5 pictures to send back to Midnight Velvet.
- I was asked to provide my honest review of the product, including how I felt wearing the item, where I’d wear the item and describe any special details pertaining to the fabric, color, style, fit etc.
- The best part was being able to keep the items to wear over and over as a thank-you for participating!
