What Participants Are Saying

Cool... Very informative—really learned more than I knew about fashion (color coordination and accessorizing). I know this may sound crazy, but I didn’t have a clue. Now I can go shopping by myself without asking, "does this color match with this or what color shoes will go with this outfit."

Style Workshop Participant

The workshop was awesome! I am so happy that I won it and got a chance to go. I learned so much and we had so much fun! Gretchen & Jenny were great instructors on telling us what to wear, our body shapes and what not to wear. We also learned which colors are right for us to wear and the class participated in that portion. I would not have missed it for anything. Thank you so much for all that you do.
