Dress For Success! #BloggersGive
I LOVE fashion and I’m so glad I found the courage to start my blog earlier this year, after much encouragement from close friends and family. It’s a real labor of love but not one that i take lightly by any measure. I’m very conscious of the fact that what I choose to wear is not only a reflection of my personal style but also of the image i want to convey to the world. For this reason, I make fashion choices that i can be proud of and make uniquely my own, because this is what makes me feel most confident.
I would have to say that my signature look is a classic pants suit with a pair of sleek heels. There’s something about a nicely crafted, well-tailored suit that makes me feel powerful, confident, and in control and it’s the look i opt for when i really want to make a statement (and be taken seriously). I have quite a few, in a variety of colors and styles and the one i’m wearing in this post is by Rachel Zoe. The ‘Jolee’ pants are high waist and flared (my fav) with a tuxedo-inspired side stripe and waist band. The fit is perfect. The ‘Satori’ Jacket is equally sophisticated and sleek with a dropped lapel and shawl collar. Once i found this suit, the only thing left to do was find the perfect camisole – this one i already had in my closet and it was the perfect shade of white.
While this suit makes me “look” powerful, I’m also fortunate to have a number of empowering women around me who provide inspiration and motivation on a daily basis. Fashion blogging is my personal passion, but in real life, I’m a busy wife and working mother of 2 with a very demanding career. I’m traveling constantly so my stress level is usually high and my ‘to-do’ list is very long, but during those moments when i’m feeling overwhelmed, i have a number of women confidantes, (who are also balancing the demands of work + family), I can call on for that extra level of support and motivation who remind me that i’m not alone…thankfully. Together, we empower eachother!
