CASE 1: THE NEW MOM
Caroline Denunzio39, Morningside Heights; visiting nurse
“The baby is five months old and I’m still having a hard time finding clothes. The only pants that fit me are my maternity jeans. I’m wearing a ton of black and brown because they’re dark and slimming. I’m just really lucky that higher waists are in style.”
Heidee Tabudlong, 33, Harlem; emergency-room nurse
“Caroline has a nice style, but it’s conservative and stuck in the ’90s. She’s afraid to try new things, look sexy and show a little skin.”
Stop No. 1
Pookie & Sebastian
Heidee picks a pair of skinny jeans, which causes Caroline to put up a fight right from the start. Once she’s in the complete outfit, though, everyone agrees she looks great. “It’s flattering to her figure, opens her face up and complements her skin tone,” says Heidee. Caroline likes the look and loves the fact that “the boots make my legs look longer and slimmer than they really are.” 1069 Third Ave at 63rd St (212-991-9636, pookieandsebastian.com)
