Hip, Minimalist, Globally-Inspired

When I met Abby, she had everything that defined her style, except the clothing. She was already living an urban lifestyle with a great career and an enviable passport. She also knew which boutiques she liked. But beyond that, she was stuck. After a deep dive of her likes and dislikes and a clear message that she was ready to fearlessly address her style woes, we were off. We integrated a globally-inspired piece in every outfit-whether it was from her travels, a local maker or a fun boutique. We also found sophisticated and effortless minimalist pieces to act as canvasses for her eye catching design elements.

In her words:

Working with Mellicia is amazing, seriously. She helped uncover my personal style and provided me with the tools and education needed to maintain it. Before working with Mellicia I felt frumpy and dull. Shopping was not fun for me and I wanted to change how I dressed, but didn't know where to start. Mellicia helped me see elements of my personal brand that were right in front of my eyes and decoded patterns and waistlines so I could dress for my body type. I cannot say thank you enough to Mellicia and the Poplin team for helping develop my style!
