Vanessa won her personalized portraits from the LB Academy Silent Auction back in September. Vanessa was in for a real treat that I wish all young women could do. She first met with Anetra otherwise known as Nee Chic Styles (www.neechicstyles.com)  and went shopping at H&M. Anetra helped her pick out her 3 outfits,  and accessories – all from H&M.

Anetra said on her blog: “Vanessa knew what she liked, which is a clean, minimalist look. She does not like anything too ostentatious. I loved that she knew what she liked!

I thought it would be a great idea to visit H&M because they have a variety of different styles for women, men, teens and kids. I felt confident that we would find something(s) that she would like, was/were age appropriate and that fell in line with her style.”

Vanessa was now ready to ‘rock’ her style. When the big day arrived, Makeup by Holly (www.makeupbyhollyb.com) did the perfect job of bringing out all of Vanessa’s natural beauty (make sure to check out my before and afters page). I was thrilled how it all came together. Vanessa’s mom and sister also came for support and cheered her on. There was lots of laughter going on. We had a great time. Now Vanessa is considering modeling and I hope she does!
