Fabulous Mom Makeover- Holiday Edition
Happy Monday loves! It’s a new year and I’m super excited for what 2018 will bring for us all! Last month, my makeover team came together to pamper the winner of our fabulous mom makeover contest, La’Tai Jenkins. The makeover took place at Posh Salon Studios in Columbia, Maryland.
This makeover was a little different from the last three makeovers I curated. For this holiday edition makeover, instead of styling the mom myself, I partnered with personal stylist, Stania Romain of Miss Sassy Style, to provide wardrobe styling for La’Tai. Stania was amazing. She really put some fabulous looks together for our mom. The outfits looked amazing on La’Tai! I was focused more on the creative direction of the makeover and I was sooooo happy with the outcome! I’ll introduce the entire team below. These ladies rocked it!

La’Tai Jenkins – Our Fabulous Mom
La’Tai entered our Fabulous Mom Makeover – Holiday Edition Contest and was randomly selected as the winner. La’Tai is a wife, mom of 2, works a 9-5pm job, has her own fitness coaching business, and is a current Grad school student. Yeah, she’s pretty busy these days. When I asked the contest participants to comment on why they should win the makeover, La’Tai stated that she was in desperate need of a fresh holiday look and a “heading into 40 Slay.” Wait a minute, 40 where? She got some of the good “black don’t crack” genes. lol. I’m so excited to share the images from the makeover. La’Tai is definitely slaying these makeover looks! Check out the photos below and comment on which look you like the most.
