New Year, New Style: A Chic Stripes Workshop

New Year, New Style: A Chic Stripes Workshop

New year, new you, new style?

If you always head to your nearest mall to give yourself an overhaul, this Signature Style Workshop will give you step by step guidance on why that doesn’t work.

You’ll learn:

  • What to STOP doing with your style right now

  • Where to START to discover your true personal style(s — yes, you probably have more than one inside of you!)

  • How to GAIN a better understanding of your body and its relationship with clothes

  • How to create a PLAN to conquer your style, one step at a time (no overwhelming or impulsive shopping here)"

Free for Broads and open to guests - tickets include coffee + light pastries + expert advice from a seasoned personal stylist.

About your style guide: Sydney Lester is the CEO + Founder of Chic Stripes, a personal styling company that helps women create sustainable and timeless wardrobes. She launched Chic Stripes in 2009 as a personal style blog and quickly found her niche in talking all things second hand shopping. In 2013 she conducted a year-long experiment, banning retail shopping and pledging to only shop thrift or consignment. This radically changed her view on how we approach adding pieces to our closets and informs the work she does now as a stylist. Sydney lives in Forest Hill with her husband and three cats; loves black coffee and vintage; and is found just as often in climbing/hiking shoes as she is heels.

About your instructor:

Elise Canup is an Italofile and gastronome hailing from Richmond Virginia. Her interest in Italy lies at the intersection of its food, its art, and its history—only appropriate for the holder of a Master’s in Italian Studies from Georgetown University who is fluent in Italian (ask her about her thesis on the gastronomic history of the Columbian Exchange!).

Elise has extensive experience living and working in Italy. While there she has studied at La Sapienza University, interned with the Rome Sustainable Food Project, worked on organic farms, and lead culinary tours up and down the Peninsula. While stateside, she has worked as an interpreter and curatorial assistant for a travelling exhibit of Vatican artworks, as the program coordinator The Italian Garden Project, and as the farm manager for Victory Farms.
