129 Why I Finally Sold My Oscars Dress with Hope McGrath

Tags: , ,

Hi, I’m Alex!

If you need a little help to start playing by your own rules, there’s a few ways we can work together more closely.





Welcome Ladies! Today I’ve got my friend Hope McGrath on the show. She’s my stylish friend who helped me clear out my closet. I even got rid of my Oscars dress! We talk all about my transformation today! She’s a stylist, a gallery curator and she’s a really cool Mom too! We’re talking today about the challenges of dressing ourselves, and about how emotional it can be to find our own style.
