Spring is in the air and two ladies got the chance to celebrate with stunning Ambush Makeovers.
Style expert Jill Martin and celebrity hairstylist Louis Licari chose the women from the plaza to enjoy a morning of pampering and fun.
Both ladies had big life milestones to be proud of and were ready for a total transformation. Thanks to Martin, one even left seeing the world through a new lens — literally!
Lynne Taylor works hard as a nurses aid and took time off this week to visit the plaza and for the chance to be ambushed. She recently purchased her first home and was hoping for a new look to match. Martin and Licari definitely delivered!
- Tadashi Shoji Bell-Sleeve Lace Dress, $245 (originally $408), Bloomingdale's
While the dress Taylor wore is now sold out, Martin suggested this stunning Tadashi Shoji sheath as an alternative. The bell-sleeves and lace detailing make the piece feel extra special.
- Bell-Sleeve Textured Lace Dress, $20-76, Amazon
This berry, bell-sleeved dress from Amazon is another affordable way to try out the trend.
Other lace dress options:

Amariella Flower Stud Resin Earrings, $18 (originally $34), BaubleBar

We also love these pretty heart earrings in a similar pattern.
Other pink resin earring options:
Maeve Prescription Glasses, $145, Warby Parker
Taylor walked in with a great pair of glasses, but they were in need of an upgrade. Martin hooked her up with some pretty specs with a subtle pink hue to complement the rest of the rosy look.
Full Coverage Underwire Bra, $54, Soma
Foundational garments are so important to any outfit, and Martin picked some staples from Soma, like this full coverage bra, to act as the base for this fabulous look.
Warner's Full Coverage Underwire Bra, $17-80, Amazon
Amazon's best-selling full coverage bra is another great option, with over 1,500 reviews on Amazon and a 4.2 star rating.

This thigh-slimmer from Soma was another selection from Martin that helped pull the whole look together.

The Robert Matthews shapewear line is another popular option. This bodysuit received over 700 reviews on Amazon and comes in both beige and black.
Other waist-slimming options:
