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

BTW | SHOW - Lifestyle Jules - Last Minute Health For Weddings


Steven: Maybe someone's watching this right now and you're like "I'm getting married in a week and I don't have time to like get a six pack now". What would you say to someone like that like what's some foods they can have that maybe are like slimming or at least help with like no water retention and things like that that can help maybe tighten things up for them.

 

J: Get rid of the carbs, get rid of the refined sugars, get rid of the pastas, get rid of the bread, and get rid of the salt, and stick with your vegetables and your protein, even get rid of the fruit. Fruit has a lot of sugar so even though we think we are eating something great, it does have a lot of great benefits to it but it also has a lot of sugar so get rid of all the sugary foods and stick with your proteins and your vegetables and you know that's something and count your calories. Calories in, calories out, I hate to say that but ten times your body weight today is the calories that you can eat to lose weight.

 

S: Really so low salt foods, low sugars can help be slimming I mean and like I've talked about, when I've interviewed other people it's like because you're having a photographer following you around all day getting those close ups, the eyelashes shots, the makeup shots, like different angles, even just losing a couple of water weight pounds is going to go a long way to have you know better jawlines and stuff like that.

 

J: Definitely helps. But not only that too, a lot of those foods can make your skin very sensitive as well so a lot of times breakouts are related to having those refined sugars tend to make you breakout so we're talking about that camera being close up to your face and having breakouts, get rid of those refined sugars.

 

S: Awesome. Cool. Now we are going to go check out the most ridiculous closet which is a woman's dream, not my dream, but I'm sure someone's excited, but a gargantuan amount of heels, haha, so lets go check that out and we'll learn some fashion tips.
