Dress for Success ~ Volunteering as a Personal Shopper

This past week was my orientation to volunteer to be a personal shopper for Dress for Success. Dress for Success is a non-profit organization that empowers women to get employment and keep it.

The program provides women with interview attire and other pieces of casual clothing for their work environment. There is also a career development services program that promotes employment retention and career advancement.

After our meeting we got a tour of the boutique and I was impressed....

This is inside the office. There is a piano that has hand craved artwork on it. The office manager said that sometimes women come and "ticker" on it. I know I will end up doing that.

This is artwork done by one of our local artist. It was presented during one of their fashion shows. 

This is inside the boutique. The clients will get everything. They get jewelry, hosiery, new bras, shoes and a bag!

I loved seeing this! This was done by California Closets. I look forward to serving women in my community as their personal shopper and I look forward to putting together some great looks!

I believe serving is elegant....
