Dress For Success: Shop for Charity
This Friday, I’ll be hosting the “Dress For Success” first ever pop-up shop. I became involved with Dress For Success because I understand how important it is to make a great first impression and to feel confident during job interviews and meetings. I know many women can’t afford to purchase suits and professional attire, and that can hinder them from getting a job they would be qualified for. 100% of the proceeds from this sale, with some of my favorite brands, will go to Dress For Success and you can find some great bargains at the same time! So come on out and feel good about shopping
