I was so excited to cover the relatively new boutique in Mamaroneck, ‘The Art of Dressing.’ This was an extremely fun piece to do–not because it was at a boutique (although that didn’t hurt), but because it was so much more than that.
The owner, Tonia Tagliaferro, was a very inspiring woman. Not only does she run a boutique, but she also offers classes to help women gain confidence. Her store is split in half; part store and part stage-floor.
Many women tend to ‘give up’ on their appearance as schedules get busy. Tonia helps women come together and help them retrain their brain to get a better attitude about themselves. Confidence is key.
Clients come to her with their clothes not knowing what to expect. They go through the clothes together and Tonia tells them if they are wearing the wrong sizes (whether it’s too big or too small).
Her words are sincere and inspirational.
