Why I started Embrace Your Wardrobe
I had worked my way up the ladder into a mid-level management position. Residents or contractors would come into the office, with a concern or problem, and I may have to tell them that we are unable to resolve their concern.
Early in my career while being the bearer of bad news, I often heard those dreaded words "can I speak to your manager". My manager would come out, say the "exact" same thing that I just said however, they would get heard and understood.
As you can see from my photo on the right, I do not look like I have been employed at this organization since 1985.
I learned quickly that I needed to "dress the part" to obtain the respect and get heard.
Back then, I wore only black and white.
People had no idea of who I was or my personality.
I was hiding from the world and wanted to blend into the crowd.
My clothes were non-figure flattering and dull.
I didn't know how to put together an outfit or apply makeup to save myself.
If you can relate, I am here to say that YOU are not alone, I feel your pain & frustration with clothes.
Once I decided to up my game, I had my colors done - that ALL CHANGED.
Today, I have a closet filled with colors that truly express my personality and helps me to put forth a confident and profession image.
Residents and vendors can how hear my message and give me the respect of my mid-management position.
Helping you to be respected and heard in your field is WHY I started Embrace Your Wardrobe.
