BTW | SHOW - Lifestyle Jules - Fashion & Guidance For Weddings


Steven: All right so we are here in your office where the cool work gets done right?

 

Julie: That's right. 

 

S: So just tell me a little bit about like we talked a little bit about style, we talked about kind of how you guide and develop a plan for people in general but specifically for this show brides and grooms. So if you could go in a little bit about maybe what you do for the beauty and the planning for them.

 

J: Right so I mean there is a lot of things that go into planning for your big day. You want your skin to look great, you want your hair to look great. So what I can help you with is kind of point you in the right direction as to what kind of help your skin needs, if its just basic facials, if you are looking to do something a little bit more, more med spa like I have connections with pretty much everyone in town and can kind of direct you to the right person for you and in your budget as well and then of course to planning out you know your hair. If you are looking for a long hair do and your hair is short, we have to look at "Ok how are we going to get to this place? What's the best way to go about it?" and even hair extensions now are so readily available and really you can get hair extensions that clip in and they are great quality for $100 or you can go all the way to $1000 you know extensions that are long term and we can kind of play with that and figure out and really develop a great plan as to how to get you beautiful on your wedding day. 

 

S: Right, and one thing that we had talked about too is you know everyone has like a different you know personality and vibe in themselves so you are hopefully able to pick that up and then be able to really connect them with someone who's really going to fit in with that right? Because like we had talked about you know Sparkle Bar is very feminine but is also very hip and cool and fun and their personalities are fantastic there and so maybe that kind of bride would fit is really good there but another one wouldn't. 

 

J: Right.

 

S: Right. And you are able to help them guide them through that like "no maybe you should go here". It's not cause they're better or worse. 

 

J: That's right, it might be different right and I do and I know so many people and I can kind of put you with a different person depending on your personality and know kind of what you are looking for. If I have a bride who's never worn makeup before and is going to wear makeup for their wedding only, they are not going to want some made over really dramatic look, they're going to want something a little bit more subtle and so I wouldn't direct them to somebody who loves to do the dramatic and I love dramatic so for me, sign me up, the cooler, the funkier the better, but I'm not going to send that person who's never worn makeup before to that girl. 

 

S: So really for the people going to you or someone like you, they are saving a ton of time and they are also kind of not like guaranteed but more guaranteed a better experience. 

 

J: Oh for sure, you are not going to have any fails because I have already basically done the pre-work for you so I know that this person is going to give you exactly what she said she is going to give you at the price that you want to pay and so it's a total win for both, for me, for the artist doing the work on you, and for you of course.

BTW | SHOW - Lifestyle Jules - Fashion for Weddings - Final Episode


Steven: So here we are in the exquisite closet of yourself with a very small supply of heels so clearly you have quite...

 

Julie: A shoe problem.

 

S: You have a shoe problem but actually if you are a girl I don't think it's considered a problem.

 

J: Good I like you, I like you.

 

S: Right, and um, but yea so you obviously have a good taste in fashion and you have a passion for it. 

 

J: Yes.

 

S: So lets talk a little bit about how you plan out someone's fashion right cause we talked about bridesmaid's dresses the bride's dress in general, so kind of walk me through a little bit about how you plan that, how you help people work through planning out their fashion for their wedding day.

 

J: Okay well there's a couple things, first of all, we get in our minds what we love conceptually, what we think is amazing, but we have to remember what's going to look best for our body type and that is so important so what your think you love the look of when you see somebody in a magazine and you're like, "that's the dress I love!" does it flatter your body because if it doesn't, you don't want it because on that wedding day, you want that dress to be the most flattering, beautiful thing to your body. You want it to accentuate you, you don't want the dress to be the focus, you want you to be the focus so that is first of all really really important. So look at your body type and decided what is a great shape for you so should you be in a straight, skin tight dress or should you be in more of a Cinderella ballgown you know, do you want to be sleeveless or strapless? You know really looking at your body and deciding first and foremost, what's going to flatter it? So that's the most important thing and then secondly, is the bridesmaids dresses, that gets to be a little bit hairy sometimes, so I think the best way to make everybody happy and again to make everybody feel and look beautiful is to give the option of maybe going with one color or finding a designer that has different styles in the same fabric so that they can be similar but different and be able to again accentuate their bodies and make them feel good that day. 

 

S: For sure, well yea and that's one thing we're talking about earlier is that especially if you have a large bridal party where you have like 7 or 8 people, the chances of having a variety of sizes is just almost guaranteed and so when you really kind of have the ultimatum of a single style or a single dress you really have a good chance that it's going to look bad on somebody which is no fun. 

 

J: And yea, and you don't want to make that persons day unfun and unhappy, you want everybody to be really happy and have a really great day at your event so to find and to be able to put them in a dress that makes them feel great about themselves is so important. 

 

S: So then how do you work through that then? Do you have like different dress manufactures that you work with kind of on a personal basis or how is it that you work through that with people?

 

J: Well I think the best thing to do, because we have price ranges, everybody has their own budget is to either go to a bridal store and kind of thumb through, but you know there's so many ways now to get a great price on a dress even I believe J.Crew has wedding dresses now that on bridesmaids dresses that aren't super expensive that you can go through the catalog that way. So it really, it's tailored to that person and their budget and kind of what they're looking at but once we get to wherever it is they think they want to be, then really sorting out and going, "ok are there a few styles that would work that kind of look the same that we could get everybody to be happy with price point and everything else?"

 

S: Let's see here so like probably one other thing that we'd like to talk about is, it's not wedding related, but you had a friend that you ended up doing and prepping for a TEDx talk, not a small accomplishment by any means and so just walk me through just a little bit of like how you walked her through your process of whether it was consulting people right for hair and makeup and just prepping her for that large event right cause that's also kind of a once in a lifetime type deal that has a lot of pressure
