glam-coming-soonIt’s been a while since my last post, but there’s a good reason, I promise.  I’ve been working hard on a little project, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to tell you all about it.  2013 was the year of opportunity for High Maintenance Image & Fashion Consulting, and I was more than happy to seize them all. 

Among them, plenty of speaking opportunities abounded (to include my big gig at The Pentagon), my first self-sponsored Winter Wonder Glam Workshop (which was a huge success), lots of new and fabulous clients, an invite to be the first guest on B101.5’s new radio show, Sunday Mornings with Dee Daniels (we dished on the topic of Frugal Fashion), an invite by Thunder 104.5 & 95.9 to be featured as the Deal of the Day (coming very soon), and an amazing opportunity with Fox 5 DC (segment aired on Wednesday, Jan 15…did you catch it?).  I am so very grateful for all of these open doors!!  All of these have worked together to lead me to my newest endeavor... 

I am thrilled to announce that we will soon be expanding into our new space, “Glam”, located at 905 Caroline Street in historic downtown Fredericksburg, where we will offer exciting monthly fashion workshops and fashion shows, as well as provide a product line of accessories and all things glamourous.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​  Shop our trendy and fabulous (and one-of-a-kind) “Accessory Bar” full of unique finds (to include two very special collections-- both have a celebrity-following) plucked from vendors all over the country.  Glam features working vanities where you can sit and play all day long. Discover a new kind of shopping experience with our professional stylists offering personal and customized service on every single visit.

In addition to the Glam Accessory Bar, we have partnered with the phenomenal team at Ava Laurenne Bride to bring to Fredericksburg luxurious special occasion & prom dresses (yes, we will be ready for Prom this season), bridesmaids’ dresses, and Mother-of-the-Bride dresses. Our emphasis is and will always be on the experience of finding the perfect dress and the accessories to create a show-stopping look. The space is beautiful and glamorous (of course!), and we know that you will love it!

Please join us on February 8th for our Unforgettable Grand Opening Gala.  For more information, please see our facebook invite at  See you there!
