For a while now, I have been encouraged to start a personal shopping and styling business. It’s definitely been a passion of mine. However, with so much on my already full plate, I haven’t been able to find the time to really commit to it. But when Executive Project Manager Arnita from Dallas, Texas reached out to me to help her step outside of her fashion comfort zone, I was down for the cause.
You’d be surprised at the number of times I’ve been asked if I am a stylist. I am not. I would say I’m more of a personal shopper. However, I do love helping women and men find their signature looks. Watching my “clients” gain new confidence when they love a new look I have curated for them is a natural high.
So I was super excited when Arnita wanted to get #NikkiFreeStyled! The first thing I wanted to do was add some fun and trendy items to her otherwise more conservative and classic aesthetic. Already a stylish woman, Arnita was interested in taking her wardrobe and style to another level by learning to embrace items she would usually avoid. She is a gorgeous professional with equally gorgeous legs, and I wanted to focus on them in many of the looks. I believe all women, regardless of age, size, whatever, should play up there best/favorite asset.

Arnita Craighead is an executive project manager who is very active in the community and her sorority. She loves fashion, but wanted to step outside of her comfort zone and spice it up a little.
I wanted to go all in by giving her a head to toe makeover that included hair and makeup. Giving Arnita a sense of comfortability with her new looks was priority #1. She was a bit apprehensive at first when looking at the clothes on the rack. But once she gave in to my suggestions, she loved it all.
I brought in my celebrity hair and makeup artist friend, Flavia LaSonji, to help complete this makeover. As I suspected, she did a fantastic job. Flavia is a former lead hair and makeup stylist for BET Networks. So, I knew I could count on my girl to make it happen.
