Tis the Season

It's at this time of year that we begin to think even more than we usually do about those less fortunate than us. Some people are able to volunteer their time and talents to benefit charitable organizations and others may not know exactly what they can do to help someone else so I would like to give you a great idea! If you love to shop as much as I do, why not help out another woman who's in need of a fabulous career look?

Famed Jewelry designer Kendra Scott has designed a "Hope Pendant" in 14k gold (stones available in various colors) in support of Dress For Success and for each necklace purchased ($80), one will be given to a woman in the Dress For Success program. AND...from Oct 22 to Nov 22nd enter "HOPE20" at checkout on fora 20% discount. Ladies, this is a wonderful good deed you can do to make one of our "sisters" feel great and look even better while on the not so easy job search. A touch of class and elegance always boots your confidence level right?
