Corey Roché – Celebrity Stylist: The Real

No matter your finances everyone should base their wardrobe off of staple/statement pieces. Using this method will expand your wardrobe providing you with multiple options and looks. In short, creating the illusion of a larger wardrobe.
Staple/statement pieces are (but not limited to):

  • Women; bags, shoes, jacket/blazer and accessories.
  • Men; shoes, jacket/blazer, belts and hats.
  • You can take your normal everyday jean and tank or t-shirt to the next level by adding a blazer and an after 5 shoe and go to dinner, meeting or even a date!

And if you’re accident prone don’t worry I have some remedies that will assist you along the way to keep your staple/statement pieces in tact to maintain that pristine condition:

I’m a vegan, and I incorporate that into my work [by trying] to use natural, effective remedies

ROCHE’S REMEDIES

  1. WATER + VODKA
    If you place these two simple agents into a spray bottle, you have an at-home dry cleaning service. It deodorizes the garments.
  2. BAKING SODA + DISTILLED WHITE VINEGAR
    These two agents assist me with the removal of a wide range of stains on most fabrics.
  3. CORNSTARCH
    Great for food grease and can be used on leather, silk or other delicate fabrics.
  4. HYDROGEN PEROXIDE
    Works well on organic stains such as wine, chocolate, grass, blood or—what I use it most for—armpit sweat.

Treatment is just as important because you do not want to push the stain further into the fabric. [For] food stains, use the edge of a dull butter knife to gently remove residual food without rubbing the stain. [For] liquid stains, be careful not to rub the stain; simply blot it with a dry cloth, then attempt stain removal.
