Laurie Russell was visiting from Boise, Idaho, to celebrate her 20th anniversary with her husband, Mark, her daughter Anastasia's Sweet 16 and her son Noah's graduation. With this makeover, she can celebrate in style!
Floral Print Dress
This sleeveless maxi dress is a perfect piece for your next day trip or summer outing. Martin chose this flowy maxi dress for its flattering V-neck and slimming self-tie belt that sits at the waist.
For a similar look, this floral print wrap dress boasts a vivid print and flowy fit. Plus, the fitted waist brings an equally flattering look.
Martin selected these metallic wedge sandals that add a summer vibe to any outfit. They are the perfect shoe to pair with a maxi dress!
For the same metallic look but a more open shoe, you can't go wrong with these Michael Kors sandals. They're currently on sale for 30% off, but you can score an additional 50% off with a discount that is applied at checkout.
Fringe Drop Earrings
Stuff We Love
Martin chose these beautiful fringe earrings for their ability to add some flair to any outfit. Plus, we're loving the tassel trend for summer.
These beaded earrings are just as cute and won't break the bank.
This breathable and sleek thigh slimmer will provide the slimming look and the comfort you need.
Available in two different color options, this thigh slimmer stays in place all day and is affordable.
Full Coverage Bra
This especially soft bra provides the support you need and is crafted with a soft fabric that you will love! Better yet, this bestseller is currently on sale so you can save more than $20 on this essential.
This full coverage bra offers comfort at a smaller price tag and has earned over 2,000 reviews on Amazon.
Theresa Jackson is visiting the Big Apple and dropped by the plaza with her cousin. She had previously visited TODAY three times in hopes of receiving an Ambush Makeover. Turns out the fourth time was the charm!
Martin chose a chic black jumpsuit as the centerpiece of Jackson's outfit. The above similar option has a fun halter neckline, and the chiffon material adds a touch of flair.
This similar option from Nordstrom features a halter neckline and a flowing silhouette that'll help you stay cool on hot nights.
Martin chose this complementary cardigan to top off the look. With mesh sleeves and a solid drape, it adds a layered detail to a simple outfit.
This lace cardigan from Macy's elevates any look with its delicate pattern and comfortable fit.
Martin also added these thigh slimmers to make sure that the jumpsuit fit perfectly. With breathable silicone on the hems, it stays perfectly placed, and the compression fabric helps tone and shape.
These classic shorts from Spanx provide a slimming effect, and the high waist won't move an inch.
