In this month’s Style Spotlight we talk with Abby Bacon, a client of The Difference for the last two years.
Tell us about your lifestyle?
I have a professional job that I dress up for during the week. On the weekends, I dress more casual than weekdays, but still like to look very ‘put together’. My husband and I have a 5-year-old son, so that also plays a role in my weekend wear as he loves to be outside and on the move.
How did you hear about the Difference?
I have known Daron for about 10 years or so. Our paths crossed at a Christmas party, and we reconnected on Facebook. One day I came across a video she was doing for The Difference, sent her a message and the rest is history!
What are some of your favorite purchases from The Difference?
My favorite products are the pieces that have ‘an edge.’ I love the pieces that you don’t see in every store that set your style apart from everyone else. I enjoy quality clothing that I can wear for a long time and the choices at The Difference are always great quality.
What’s something you’d share with women to encourage them to shop at The Difference?
There are so many things, but I think one of the top things is the around shopping with a stylist, and the relationship you form. I know I can text Daron and tell her I need a specific thing, pants, jeans, tops, etc and she will pull together a variety of options that she knows will look good with the pieces I have already purchased and will fit properly. I have learned so much about the fit from Daron! I now realize, that for the last few years, I was actually wearing the wrong sizes in many pieces of clothing and by wearing the proper size, how much better I look and feel!
I also I encourage everyone to watch the live videos ‘What to Wear Wednesday” at 9 am. Daron shows many of the new pieces that have arrived and even tries them on! Then I send her a text, telling her I want to come visit and she already has a selection pulled for me to try on when I get there. This is become my absolute favorite way to shop. One day I told her that now I feel like I don’t know how to shop without her because this way is so much better!
What are some of your favorite things about your stylist and experience at The Difference?
My experience with Daron at The Difference has completely changed how I view my wardrobe and getting dressed every day. She has encouraged me to venture out of my comfort zone and try new colors, fits and even mixing patterns, which I thought was a total faux pas! Daron has shown me how to dress with the edge she knows I love and concentrate on building a wardrobe in which pieces complement each other rather than pieces of ‘fast fashion.’ I cannot explain how great it feels to put something on that she picked especially for me knowing what I already have in my closet and what is going to look best. I no longer drag myself to the stores to endlessly try on garments and often leave empty-handed, I just text her and go for a visit!
