How Dress for Success helps women
At Savvy Sassy Moms, we know how you dress can affect your mood, your confidence and the way you carry yourself as you walk into a room. Well-fitting, situation-appropriate clothes can provide the kind of inner confidence that allows you to stand taller in your shoes — even if you’re so nervous you’re shaking in them.
Dress for Success is an international not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and career development tools to help them thrive in work and in life. Listen to three powerful stories about the power a job holds in a woman’s life.
While clothes are an important part of Dress for Success, the organization does more than help women look like they’re ready for success. Networking and career development tools are the other cogs that work together to help women find their career footing, build their confidence and provide for their families.
Vanity Fair and the fantastic BOGOGO
We can’t resist a bargain, and Buy One, Get One deals always turn our heads. The Vanity Fair partnership with Dress for Success takes the BOGO concept and adds a level of social good with “give one.”
Vanity Fair Lingerie supports the women of Dress for Success as they kick off their Buy One, Get One, Give One (BOGOGO) promotion this week! Vanity Fair believes a bra can change a life, so during BOGOGO events, shoppers will have the opportunity to buy any Vanity Fair bra at regular price, receive one Vanity Fair bra for free and in turn, Vanity Fair will donate one bra to Dress for Success.
In addition to providing a bra to a woman — talk about a literal and figurative foundation for feeling good at a job interview! — shoppers have the opportunity to write a personalized bit of advice that will be passed along with the donation.
Writing the advice cards makes this event truly special. Watching the Dress for Success video drove home how personally women are affected by the program, and I can imagine the individual notes written on inspiration cards give an extra boost when getting ready to go to an interview. Connecting with and supporting other women helps build the network needed to create opportunities for career success — one note card at a time.
