The session ran for about 1 hour, was extremely informative, involved no hard sales pitch and resulted in a $25 gift card that I used to purchase the suit pictured below

The session provided information on how to build your professional wardrobe without going broke and dressing for your body type. I learned that I am an inverted triangle shape (upper body broader than lower).

To dress this shape I should focus clothing that makes my shoulders appear narrower, wear accessories that draw attention to the center of my body and accentuate the hips I do have to create the hour glass shape. Below are a few photos of clothing suited to this body type:

Do you know YOUR body type? Whether you shop at Melanie Lyne or not I suggest making a stop in to inquire as these sessions are FREE. Contact your local Melanie Lyne to find out when their next session is taking place, they will also do a private consultation with you also FREE!
