My dream was to be a fashion designer as I have a love for trends in fashion. While my dream did not pan out as planned I have been fortunate to take my creative flair into the eyewear industry. Since 2007, I’ve been in partnership with my sister Kristiena, has been managing the Eye Care Group, Jasper Ave, Whyte Avenue location & St.Albert locations. Since the eye care business was always a vital part of Kim’s childhood, it was her parents’ wish that she and Kristiena would one day take over the practice. This, in combination with her passion for vision care, motivated me to become a licensed optician and continue her parents’ legacy. Like my parents and sister, I believe in the importance of providing the best eye care service possible combined with high-quality products and making people feel good.
Success stylist Tina Spoletini combines her formidable fashion flair with personalized mentorship sessions on self-love and confidence-building, helping her clients feel fabulous, dressing in ensembles complimenting their various body shapes and sizes. Growing up as a plus-sized beauty, like many women who don’t “fit” in, Tina found herself at odds with society’s sizeist perspective on the female physical ideal. But, even though shopping in a world made for smaller women could be an exercise in futility and self-loathing, the right outfit that flattered her curves would always come through, erasing any self-destructive thoughts and making her feel gorgeous and revitalized. Tina quickly learned that she had to find her own way to stand out with distinctive accessories and touches of self-expression. Enhancing any outfit, no matter how casual, with eye-catching jewellery has become her signature look. Circumstances may have compromised her own self-esteem at times, but everything has come together to make Tina Spoletini even more determined to use her talents and training to help other women re-discover themselves and build the confidence they need to live the life they imagine. After all, chic comes in every shape!
