Feeling Empowered

I hope you had a fabulous weekend =)

I would have to say my weekend was both Empowering and Fabulously-fun!

Empowering Volunteer Work…

My weekend started off bright and early Saturday morning to do some volunteer work for the Los Angeles Urban League Young Professionals.  We worked with the students of Crenshaw High School to help them understand the importance of dressing for success.  We provided tips and advice on what to wear to a job interview on the job.   The purpose behind this was to show the students that in job-hunting, first impressions are critical! It’s important to put your best foot forward and represent you, the product 100%.

After we finished our “what to wear and what not to wear” presentation, the students received a gift certificate to shop with a mentor for their appropriate job attire at the Del Amo Fashion Center.  I had the pleasure in shopping with two fabulous students! We hit it off right away and now I will be mentoring one of the young ladies.

What to wear to the job interview and to work!

A Colorful Story

From bold colors for our wardrobe and accessories, to funky-fresh colors for our nails! Spring is bigger and brighter than ever; and I’m loving it.  Flowers are blooming all around us, the sun is shining and our days are getting longer! It’s spring time baby!

My hot color picks of the day for your spring fashion ensemble are: Blue Curacao which pays respect to the 2010 Color of the Year, Turquoise.  This color is great because you can add a warm feminine touch with Coral Rose or Honeysuckle.

Tip of the Day: If you’re afraid of color, keep it simple! Try wearing a Khaki button-up dress, paired with dramatic accessories and a cute pair of flats.  Or if  your like me, keep it sexy with a cute open toe sandal.

Go forth and be fashionable!
