Ever since I could remember, I always had a purse in tow and begged my aunt to put red lipstick on my lips. I consider myself a natural born shopper, spending endless days at the mall shopping with my grandmother. My hometown of Detroit, Michigan has taught me to take pride in what I wear each day.
I am a firm believer that the clothing you wear has power. When I have on an outfit that looks great on my curves and I feel comfortable in, I am more confident at work!
This blog will cover three points of interest: Clothes, Careers and Culture.
Clothes- It is hard for girls with curves to find fashion forward clothes that are appropriate for the workplace. I will highlight some of my own work outfits and other great finds I find online. Because your clothes have POWER, it is essential that your outfits are on point each day!
Careers– I have learned some valuable lessons in the work world so far, from working as a classroom teacher to currently working in local government. This blog will give me a platform to discuss my personal career experience, as well as addressing the challenges women face in the workplace that often make us feel uncomfortable. You will walk with me as I start my journey to reach my goals of becoming a professor, entrepreneur and founder of a non-profit.
Culture- I will be giving my two cents on current events that are relevant to women, people of color, young professionals and local news in the Washington, D.C. area.
