Victoria Vo, 43, has been denying herself the pleasure of style.

The Cary wife, mother, IT specialist and entrepreneur, originally from Vietnam, loves to dress up and wants to wear clothes that are comfortable, fit well and look stylish. But she often buys what’s on sale, even if it isn’t exactly the style or quality that she wants.

“I want you to refresh my look with something different and fun, because I tend to go to the same styles over and over,” she said. I showed her that beautiful clothes can bring you joy and give people around you something lovely to look at. Why not go for fun and function?

Watch the accompanying video for the full story on her makeover.
