Dress for Success
Audra: Well didn’t pack out that rat race is pretty tough especially in these difficult times but three women got a little help from actress Kristen Bell and designer Robert Burney. Better Fashion expert Lauren Ezersky was in Union Square for the entire makeover.
Lauren: What does marshals and dress for success have in common? Well you are going to find out.
Both of you are basically were out of jobs is that it how kind of originally started?
Sharrie: I was laid off and came to dress for success, I got suited and within three months I was employed.
Lauren: So it really does make a big difference in your life?
Sharrie: Absolutely and now I am very involved in the organization that means so much to me.
Eunice: This has motivated me greatly because of the attire. The presentation of walking in and dress appropriately – it did wonders for me.
Lauren: I really think that if you looked good, you feel good and you do project – confidence and that really helps don’t you think?
Sharrie: Absolutely looking the part, definitely help me to walk in to my interview and feel like I had it.
Vanea: I was unemployed and transitioning from another program and I got an internship and during my internship. I got higher so I needed clothes and so that is how I got involved – I went for a week worth of clothing. And often times tell people the only thing that is missing from the experience is the spa treatment of having your nails done. Maybe a glass of champagne.
Lauren: She is a diva already – champagne? How some diamonds from Harry Winston like come on.
Vanea: Well that is kind of okay of with that too, you get jewelry and bags. They give you the full treatment.
Lauren: Well you know what if you get that, you let me know because I need that – I need a spa treatment.
Vanea: I will hook you up.
Lauren: It was really empowering wasn’t it?
Kristen: Well I mean I think that you know, you got to see all the new spring fashion Trance Marshal has but also we are here to sport dress for success which is amazing empowering company that gets women into the work place and to feel confident about it. And Marshals gave very generous donations so all these women. They dress over 500,000 women can have the clothes where they feel confident in the work place.
You know women need to feel beautiful and need to feel confident. And I think giving the tools for fashion makes them feel capable and confident and responsible and able to sort of move up in the work place.
Lauren: I love that you are doing is I have to say because I think clothing is so empowering for women and for men – for everybody. When you put on something great, you feel great is this natural?
Robert: A 100% in which why this is such a great match because I think the women who are getting back into the work place needs to have affordable fashion. Because they know they are going to feel confident when they put it on, for the greater part of history – fashion was for the rich. And now it has become very democratic and you know fashion is a complete and total personal expression. It tells, it says a lot about; it is your voice before you actually open you mouth.
Because people start to – they look at you and they have an opinion about you whether you are approachable. Whether you are unapproachable, it is your voice.
Lauren: Do you feel gorgeous?
Eunice: I feel great. I feel pretty.
Lauren: Cool fashions and fun interviews thanks for joining me I am Lauren Ezersky for Better.
