“Give Confidence Hope Style”
These words really resonate with me as I read about O, The Oprah Magazine’s limited edition capsule collection at Talbots that benefits one of my favorite charities, Dress for Success. Dress For Success is an international non-profit that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing support, development tools, and professional attire to help women thrive in the workplace.
Especially because today we honor and support women’s contributions to our society and economy (today is International Women’s Day), I thought that this collaboration was particularly important to share. With 30% of the net proceeds from the O capsule collection at Talbot’s going directly to empower women reentering the workforce, you can make a powerful contribution with your shopping dollars. We all can understand the confidence a new look can inspire, and this seemingly small contribution can be a huge first step for many women returning to work and embarking on the journey to become self sufficient.
Now let’s talk style, because this collection has plenty to offer! Designed in partnership with the Creative Director of O Magazine; the collection offers a fun, modern twist to classic styles. Items include a cheerful, mixed print silk scar, a nautical-inspired knit vest, and chic, French-girl mules (all of these are on my wish list!).
And, most importantly, last year’s capsule collection helped over 20,000 women (after raising over $1 million dollars)! This year we have the opportunity to help even more as the collection hit stores nationwide, including Bellevue Square, on February 21st.
Ways You Can Get Involved:
- Shop the collection in-stores or online
- Donate monetarily in-stores or online at tabots.com/dressforsuccess through April 2nd
