Accessories can make an outfit, the more the better. Sasha accessories queen and fashion stylist is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to this.
She sat down with Miss Larue to talk about how fashion and accessories is her passion.
Give us a little backstory about yourself
-I’m a fashion stylist based in The Philadelphia PA Area, I’m also a mom of 2 boys and they are my only & biggest motivation on this success journey that I’m on. I also have an accessory boutique that turned 1 in December of 2020 named “Sasha’s Accessory Secret”. We specialize in unique, trendy & affordable pieces to bring an added flare as well as bringing a look completely together.
What made you want to start your business
-I’ve always been a huge accessory addict in reference to my personal style. Typically receiving compliments as well as being asked where I get my staple pieces from. So i figured I’d bring one of my favorite things being accessories to my passion of styling. It’s honestly the best decision I could’ve done because i enjoy what I do on every level. My motto is “Heavy On The Accessories”.. do really it seemed like a no brainer to start providing these statement pieces, some custom made, others sourced internationally but overall we have something for decertify whether you like more simple items or the flashy extra type of look.
What were some challenges have you faced and how did you overcome?
-I didn’t realize starting a business required so much patience, I automatically assumed because I get so much support regarding my styling & personal looks I post content wise on my social media platforms that the sales would come effortlessly. I was wrong, I had to create my own method to pretty much advertise as well as showcase how to style the pieces that I have for sell by posting consistent content. It was a slow start & it was a little discouraging, but having a strong mindset & staying consistent is what kept me pushing.
What advice would you give someone who would like to start their own business?
-Never Give Up! Create your own lane if you feel like there isn’t one for you! On the good days, the bad days, the slow days, the days you don’t get any orders or inquiries keep putting your business in everybody’s faces! People see you, keep showing up!
