PERSONAL STYLING

magic2.jpg

My mission is to help women just like me - those who have struggled with their weight and size, or are sick of getting fashion advice that only pertains to the models of the world (no offence to the models of the world). I can help you feel more confident and amazing in your clothes, no matter what your size, because girl - that shit (sizing, the numbers on the scale) really doesn’t matter. You are beautiful and that’s all I want you to see. I want you to be excited to get dressed in the morning and show the world your incredible self through your personal style. I want you to be comfortable and not be distracted because your pants don’t fit well and you have to keep pulling them up. Or unbuttoning the top button when you sit down for lunch. 

If you don’t know my health journey story, I would encourage you to read my blog post that dives a bit into it (https://www.aldonab.com/post/my-health-weight-loss-journey) - as someone who’s landed everywhere in between sizes 4 and 14, I know how to dress myself at various sizes and as my body shape has altered in the process. And dressing for the various stages of my life, as I’ve gone from working within retail and customer service, to PR and Marketing positions where I was working in an office and dealing with clients and the public each day, to now working for myself, usually from the comfort of my own home.

 

No matter which styling service you're interested in, we’ll start with a discovery session to see where you are and where you are going. Or if you don’t know where you want to go, we can discover that together. 

 

I can help you shop, create some killer outfits from your closet with items you already own, and help you figure out the best pieces for your body shape so that you feel like a million bucks (without spending a million bucks). I’m the queen of shopping on a budget and finding amazing sales and pieces that you’ll get a lot of miles out of. So don’t think you can’t work with a stylist because you don’t have a big budget for a whole new wardrobe - sometimes, it’s really just about re-imagining the pieces you already have and adding just a few things to spice things up. Or to get ready for a new season, let that be the weather or something new in your life. 

 

I’m here to provide personal styling that goes beyond style - it’s about your overall health, wellness and how you show up in the world - As the best version of the unique being that is YOU! 

But wait, there's more! Gentlemen, I also offer all of my services to you as well, so make sure to check out the Menswear section below. 

All of these packages are available virtually, so you don't even have to leave the comfort of your own home to get your style on! 

The best way to get started is to send me an email and we can figure out what the best package for you might be, and I'll provide you with a custom quote based on your specific needs. You can reach me at aldonabcreative@gmail.com - I can't wait to hear from you!

I have worked with Aldona several times over the years; as a designer for theatre and film and as a personal stylist. She brightens every room she walks into. Both with her designs - which are always thoughtful, detailed and stylishly tailored to each artist- and with her demeanor, which is always warm, positive and collaborative. Aldona has a way of working that makes everyone feel good about what they are wearing and makes the process of getting there a delight. -Katherine Fadum, Actor

CLOSET REFRESH

3O8A0045.jpg

Most days you open your closet and feel like you have nothing to wear. Or you’re bored. Or nothing fits you. Let me tell you, I’ve been there often and so have my clients. 

 

The closet overhaul is the perfect service to get you started - most women have a lot of great items in their closets already and it’s just a matter of re-inventing some of your pieces into outfits that will make you want to sing at the top of your lungs and show up as your most bad ass self! It’s too easy to get stuck in a rut and wear things the same way over and over again. Sometimes a little swap out and restyle is all that you need. 

 

While I’m in your closet, we can also evaluate what you might no longer need at all, what you should add to make the most of what you already have, and what could work with a little alteration love. 

 

I will give you ideas of how to put things together, how to make the most of your wardrobe and how to get dressed and be excited to do so! We’ll delve deeper into dressing for your body shape, the do’s and don’ts and identifying your likes/dislikes and how to incorporate these into your every day style. 

Please Note: Minimum 2 Hour Booking

Virtual Sessions Available 

STYLE AT WORK

Devani-1.jpg

We spend a lot of time at work, so whether you’re going into the office or working from home and need something cute for your zoom meetings, I’m here to help! One of the key elements of my styling is to help you find versatile pieces, and that especially the case when work outfits are concerned. I want you to be able to take these and wear them outside of work too in a more relaxed and causal way. 

 

I’ll help you discover clothing and styles that are most suitable for your body type and your career but that still resonates with you and your personal style - and even more importantly, that helps you exude confidence! 

Virtual Styling Sessions Available. 

MENSWEAR 

3O8A0351.jpg

Gentlemen, don’t be shy, personal styling is for everyone. I had the great pleasure of working within menswear for many years, so I’ve done it all - from fitting blazers, jackets and suits, to putting outfits together that are suited for the weekend. Any of the above services also pertain to you - if you need a little closet refresh, some new ideas of how to put your clothing together to create some killer outfits, or you need a little shop done to update what you already own, I’ve got you. 

Virtual Styling Sessions Available. 

SHOPPING EXPEDITION 

20180311 WednesdayRoom EC 1038.jpg

Shopping can be daunting, stressful and annoying - sometimes, even I’m not that into it, but I will be, just for you! 

 

We can do this in a number of ways - I can physically go and pick some items for you, you can join me on a shopping adventure (and we can get cocktails or coffee after), or I can do some online shopping and send it all right to your door. You keep what you love, we ditch what didn’t work. And repeat when it’s time for another round of refreshing your wardrobe. 

 

Of course, we can go through your new items and create some outfits and I can show you how to incorporate these new pieces into your existing wardrobe. 

 

Please Note: Minimum 2 Hour Booking

INDIVIDUAL STYLING  

3O8A0421.jpg

Perhaps you don’t need a full closet refresh but wouldn’t mind some fun ideas to mix things up a bit - it’s so common for us to buy an outfit and continue to wear it the same way over and over and over again. So I’m here to mix it up and hopefully inspire you to get creative and have some fun with your personal style. 

 

This service option is also wonderful if you need something fabulous for an event or special occasion - I can help you narrow down some snazzy options, add some shopping fun to the mix if we decide that’s the best course of action, and off we go to stylish land! I don’t ever want you to go to another wedding or fundraiser or date, or anything, and not feel like the best, most comfortable and confident version of yourself. 

Virtual Styling Sessions Available. 

EDITORIAL STYLING

DSCF5028.jpg

I’ve had the lovely pleasure of contributing to various publications over the years and I have appeared on many TV shows to showcase style segments, including CTV, Breakfast Television and Global TV, and have worked with many businesses on editorial shoots for their brands and products. 

 

I love creating and being creative, and editorial styling is just one way that I get to do that. If you’re a business or brand and want to work with me, please get in touch.
