Dress for Success

I've been a long time advocate of the old adage that looking the part is half the battle.
Especially in business. Most especially in men dominated industries of which I am and always have been a part of.
Dress the part and respect will surely follow.
But what if you're unable to afford the pieces that make up a professional wardrobe?
As usual, ms. Oprah to the rescue.

Last year, O, the Oprah Magazine, together with Talbots launched the Dress for Success program.
Allowing women to donate their gently worn professional attire to help others.
Donating to the worthy cause of empowering women in the workforce.
Last year, together, they raised over 1 million dollars AND received over 4,000 boxes of clothing across Canada and the U.S. helping over 20,000 women!
This year, they're doing it again with a limited edition collection perfect for the office or anywhere. 

  So, shop the collection here.
Donate your gently used work wear in Talbot's stores between March 2nd - 5th.
Or just make a small donation.

Happy Friday.


  1. What a great campaign!! As we women we really need to help one another!! an some fabulous pieces in the collection ... perfect for spring/summer.

  2. Dearest Susan,
    In my early years living in the USA, Talbots was my favorite store.
    It was only in the early 90s when I discovered the Premium Outlet Malls, that I left...
    Great concept of helping other women!
    Funny as you wrote to have worked in a male dominant industry. That has always been true for me as I found myself often as the only female. But dress for success is so true; it tells everyone who you are.
    Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak. ~Rachel Zoe
    Hugs and happy weekend!

  3. I'm so happy that Oprah and Talbots joined up with Dress For Success, but they did not create this program. It was started in 1995 by Nancy Lublin.


I love reading every last one. Thanks so much for stopping by our little blog. xo.
