Question Numero Uno: “What Do I Wear!?”
So one of the questions I get asked most when approaching a photo session is “What do I wear?!” As I much as I like to think I am super stylish (which occasionally I can be), I certainly don’t feel I know anywhere near enough to give fashion advice to anyone else. You like cheetah print and gold? Well, then maybe we’ll talk. These are the reasons why I am so excited to share this nugget of fashion information with all of you chic Bay Areans (yes, I just made that word up).
Ambiance, Your San Francisco Personal Stylist!
Have you ever been to any of Ambiance’s 4 San Francisco locations? If not you’ve definitely been missing out. To give you a little background, Ambiance San Francisco was founded in 1983 at their original location in Haight Ashbury. Since then, they have opened 3 more locations and have become one of San Francisco’s favorite boutiques. I have been shopping here for years and am in LOVE! I love that each store has its own sass & style, I love the black striped branding, I LOVE that it’s owned by a local husband and wife, and I LOVE their clothes! The items Ambiance carries are accessible to most women in San Francisco, ranging in price from $5 to $450. There’s something for everyone!
Now, here’s the real deal….
Only the most stylish ladies work at Ambiance San Francisco, which means that they have a wealth of style advice for you. Although not many know it, you can call ahead and say “I’m a size 10 (almost there!), I have approximately $275 to spend on an outfit for my engagement session, I love bright colors, and I’ll be there in an hour.” By the time you get there, they will have already styled a great selection of outfits for you to choose from. Hello personal stylist in a neighborhood near you!
