How We Work Belmont boutique Bessie Blue offers a dream mix of ultra-chic yet sublimely wearable women's clothing, shoes and accessories. The store was kind enough to allow us to document the Polished process with client Ayanna Ashley Doiron as we sought pieces to diversify her wardrobe and give this new mom plenty of options for every occasion.


Allison and Ayanna discuss wardrobe goals.
