March marks Women’s History Month, International Women’s Day and Smart & Sexy day! That’s right, we have our own national holiday, and when we say “we” that includes you. Smart & Sexy Day, is a day to celebrate the many wonderful sides of every woman.
We teamed up with The Women's Alliance (The Women’s Alliance is becoming Alliance of Career Development Nonprofits) to host Smart & Sexy day events throughout the country to help inspire & empower women – boosting their self-confidence so that they feel assured, confident and, most of all, employable. “In today’s slow rebounding economy, it continues to be difficult for those who have been out of the job market to find employment. Combine that with not having the appropriate clothing to make an excellent first impression at an interview, it can create impossible barriers for some disadvantaged women,” says Jeanne Flint, Fund Development Chair of the Alliance of Career Development Nonprofits. “Our community-based, volunteer driven member organizations serve over 60,000 women each and every year, day in and day out assuring low-income women seeking self-sufficiency have an equal chance! Smart & Sexy Day brings awareness to this important work and the impact our members are having on thousands of women’s lives in your community.” Our events include accurate fittings and free foundational garments from yours truly and will be held in the following cities in the month of March:
• Bottomless Closet (New York, NY) - March 24
• Career Wardrobe (Philadelphia, PA) - March 26
• Desert Best Friend’s Closet (Palm Desert, CA) - March 27
• Dreams to Reality (Jefferson City, MO) – March 31
• Image for Success (San Rafael, CA) - March 26
• Ladies of Valor Empowerment (Miami, FL) - March 7
• Suited for Success (Oklahoma City, OK) - March 26
• Suit Yourself, Inc. (Painesville, OH) – March 27
• Tailored for Success (Malden, MA) – March 27
• Transforming Lives & Restoring Hope (Roanoke Rapids, NC) – March 21
• WHW (Women Helping Women/Men2Work) – Santa Ana, CA – March 27
We believe all women are, and have the potential to be both SMART and SEXY, everyday. Smart in the choices you make, with your friends, families and in your careers and in your communities. Sexy is self-confidence. Sexy is your walk, your talk and that can easily be improved with something as simple as a new outfit or bra.
As we continue into March, we ask that you take time to help empower women around you, starting with yourself. To paraphrase Helen Reddy, you are strong, you are invincible, you are woman. We wish every woman a wonderful Smart & Sexy Day, on March 13th and every day!
