Happy Friday everyone!
March is Women’s History month, and March 8th is International Women’s Day–in honor of this women empowering month AnUblog will be featuring women empowering messages, and giveaways (Monday 3/10 first giveaway).
I recently attended an event hosted by Ann Taylor, and Marie Claire magazine with my friend Fatima. Own the Room was the theme of the event and had a panel featuring Marie Claire’s Director Lea Goldman, Marie Claire’s Merchandising Editor Madison Shoop, and personal finance, career expert and author Farnoosh Torabi.
The panel highlighted empowering message for women most important being women should invest in themselves & others will invest in them! Farnoosh Torabi author of When She Makes More mentioned how many women are now the breadwinners of the family, and how they are more educated because careers that are on the rise are more women driven. Lea Goldman discussed ten tips on how women can own the room, my favorite was “never underestimate the power of great accessories.” Madison Shoop shared her fashion picks from Ann Taylor and emphasized on buying separates that can work in multiple outfits. Here are some snaps from the event.
Guest enjoyed sips, sweets, browsed looks by Ann Taylor, and mini makeovers by Trish McEvoy for updated head shots by onsite photographer to use on professional online profiles. Attendees of the event will also receive a copy of the book When She Makes More when it releases May 1, 2014.
Here are some outfits featured by Madison Shoop, and a few looks featured around Ann Taylor store.
Have a blessed Friday & stay empowered!
