Confident, Functional, Sexy

Nancy is a travel writer. She is either working from home or traveling the globe with a small suitcase. We wanted to be sure that she felt classy and sophisticated for international trips while also ensuring that her pieces worked for multiple purposes so she could travel light. Nancy is also limited to a number of shoe brands and wanted to be sure this wouldn’t restrict her style. It did not. My favorite new pieces: her yellow vegan leather jacket that works well in rainy weather and her long sleeve blue velvet dress that keeps her warm for formal occasions with or without adding the jacket.

In her words:

Collaborating with Mellicia to elevate my fashion style as a travel journalist and communication skills coach has been nothing short of miraculous - plus, so rewarding and such fun! I had gotten bored having the same “go to” outfits for every occasion and wanted to work with someone who would challenge me to stretch my fashion comfort zone both in color and style. I found that person in Mellicia. From our initial consultation to my closet overhaul, from creating my wardrobe wishlist to our photo fashion shoot with her stellar makeup and photography artists, my entire experience was a delight. Every woman deserves to spend a day with the Poplin Style team!
