We all know bloggers love fashion, or at least fashion bloggers love fashion. And many fashion bloggers love styling their looks and sharing them with the world via the internet. Putting together a look my seem as second nature as breathing to fashion bloggers, but many women can find it overwhelming. And we all know it is not as easy as it looks. Some women are so uncomfortable with it they even dislike shopping itself. I am sure we have all seen those angst ridden, tear filled episodes of “How Do I Look?” and how these women want to throw in the towel five minuets in to their shopping trip at the first boutique they enter. Well Keaton Row has thought of this, and their concept of using the services of a stylist online is really quite genius. Granted there will be some situations that are more suited to a face to face interaction. But for the most part this service is very approachable, easy to use, and quite convenient.
And for fashion bloggers that may want to try their hand at styling, this is a wonderful way to do so. You do not need to live in NY, you do not need to work in fashion, and you do not need prior experience—all you need is the will and a good eye. However, it will take some work. Keaton Row does not provide the clients, it is up to the stylist to seek out her own clients—think pink cadillacs and Mary Kay. The company suggests starting with your friends, family and even perhaps your coworkers. I am not sure how successful this will be for everyone, I guess it depends on your personality. Another strategy could be to go right to cyber space and recruit potential clients that way. I have just signed up, so unfortunately I do not have any proven methods for you to follow. It is still a work in progress so only time will tell, but if this sounds like something you think you may be good at, check out KeatonRow.com and if you like what you see sign up as stylist, a second income, a hobby with perks , or hey you never know—it could be the start of a whole new life.
