POLISHED POPE | STYLES
Today we will show you what a less than $25 outfit looks like. We had the opportunity to style the founder of The Modest Movement, Jasmine Garner. During a Polished Pope Styles: Retail Therapy Session earlier this month. Jasmine was on the hunt for basic pieces that she could add to her existing wardrobe and for her upcoming photo shoot that I actually happened to be styling. We had so much fun and found some good everyday friendly pieces. Jasmine walked out of the store with several bags and a huge smile on her face because of how little she actually spent. That to me sounds like some pretty successful Retail Therapy!
Extremely Effortless, Classic and of course Frugal. We kept it really simple with neutral colors and items that would compliment her frame. This young lady is a 22-year-old Holistic Life Coach, a Professional Model, and Actress from North Memphis, TN. Like the name of her brand, she is a very modest young lady who has an exceptional love for faith and ministry. When styling Jasmine for her shoot, I wanted to display a few things. I wanted to show that this young lady is about her business, her posture and everything about her personality shouts sophistication and confidence. Lastly, Jasmine believes that as a woman in the modeling and acting industry you can still present yourself as beautiful while covering yourself. Pictured, you will see that Jasmine is wearing a black coat, white turtleneck, white pants, black tights, shoes and added accessories. Keep scrolling to find out more about these Polished Picks!
