Fashions Fade, Style Is Eternal

Dress For Success

In Uncategorized on March 28, 2011 at 2:40 am

Last Wednesday I assisted Christie Lohr in styling the models who were dressed in clothing donated by a wonderful company called Dress For Success.  They assist and re-introduce women who can’t afford to buy clothing for interviews and those that have been out of the working environment for so long due to unfortunate circumstances.  Not only do Dress For Success assist women in dressing, but they also coach them on various office and life skills, giving the women the much needed confidence to get back into the working world.

If you would like to find out more about donating money or clothes to Dress For Success or even volunteering your time to help these women, visit http://www.dressforsuccess.org/supportdfs_donate.aspx – I will definitely be volunteering my services to this amazing cause.

Another point that was made during this show was that second hand clothing can and does, if put together correctly, look amazing at a fraction of the price.  If you follow the basic guidelines Christie described on the show you’ll have a basic but very versatile work wardrobe.

And to top off an amazing morning, we bumped into Twilight actor, Charlie Bewley who had just been interviewed.  He is running the BMO Vancouver Marathon plus another 21 km and raising money as a tribute to his late friend and colleague, stuntwoman Jocelyn Clarke, who passed away recently.  To read more about his cause and donate visit http://www.charliebewley.com/runforyourlife/
