The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. I don’t know what a time would look like if Trixies wasn’t giving back to our community and other non-profits that we adore! Dress For Success is more than just a non-profit to us; it’s a sisterhood.
We recently spent the day with some beautiful women doing their hair and makeup for a luncheon and fashion show. Watching them put on these designer clothes did so much for our souls. I don’t know if they realized the impact that they were making around them, but it was something spectacular. The energy in the room could have made you fly. Watching them walk the runway with pride and hearing their stories of tragedy and triumph made you feel like you could overcome anything! I know we all left there with a skip in our step and feeling grateful for having the opportunity to spend the day with these she-reos!!!
