I have to admit that I am terrible when it comes to figuring out what to wear for events. And for pictures? Forget it. Especially family pics.
Family pics where you want to be sure that everyone in the pic looks like they belong to the same family… or in the same photo, at least! I’ve always heard the advice to mix prints, but had zero clue how to do that without making it turn out like some sort of clashing circus pic. So, I’ve been one to go for the matching clothes: everyone in jeans and a white shirt, that sort of thing.
But, we have a family photo session scheduled in the next few weeks and I wanted something different, not matchy-matchy. So, instead of trying to figure out something on my own, I turned to The Little Style File, since this is what they do.
You contact them and let them know that you are interested in their services and they will reply back with their survey, where you can tell them what you are looking for. Whether it’s looks for the five of you for a family photo or maybe it’s a few looks for you for your high school reunion weekend.
You let them know any likes/dislikes you have, what sizes you are looking for, what sort of personal style best fits you, as well as what budget you are working with. And they’ll put some looks together for you. Here’s what they came up with for my family:
The navy and khaki pairs of shorts are ones that I had let them know that my boys already had, so to incorporate those if they could. I also let them know that we’d probably use shoes we already had, but if they could just show suggestions of what types they’d recommend and I’d pull something like those from the closet if we had them. I totally bought the ones they suggested for me, though. They suggested if I had any earrings like those ones to use those and that’s what I’m doing.
I was able to review the looks and see if I liked what they had put together or if there were changes I wanted. After you finalize your looks, The Little Style File will send you links to where to buy the items online.
They came in under budget for me and they managed to have the looks from only a few different sites so that I wasn’t getting slammed with too many shipping fees(note: I live in the middle of shopping no-man’s-land, so I couldn’t just head to the store and pick up many of these- dude, we don’t even have a Gap). I was extremely happy with their service and would definitely use it again! I can’t wait to see how our family pics turn out!
