Last Saturday was all about Eloquii and Girl Bosses! I teamed up with my good friend Sierra Holmes. You may know her from her blog Eclectic Kurves. We wanted to shine a light on curves in the workplace because they can so often be misunderstood, misrepresented, and unwarrantedly sexualized. Eloquii provides so many options for women who conduct business and run their wardrobes with style and confidence.
A Girl Boss Always Gives because Giving is Always Good
Along with celebrating curves in the workplace, we wanted to ensure that all of the curvy girl bosses in the greater Columbus, Ohio area are able to work it! Imagine returning to the workforce with limited funds and resources and having to purchase an interview look. We joined forces with Dress for Success Columbus for this event because they often do not get the donations that they need for plus size women. 10% of the proceeds from the Girl Boss event went to Dress for Success Columbus.
As a blogger, I know my closet is overrun with gently worn items. I plan on starting a system of purchasing and purging. My workwear can do double duty for a woman who just needs some help getting her start.
Just a Little Push
Meet Krista, Sierra and I met this beautiful blonde shopping during our event. Krista said that she found out about the event online. She works in real estate, but she really didn’t come in to try on anything. Sierra and I almost immediately turned into her cheering section by encouraging her to just try on a few pieces with the in-house Eloquii stylist.
Krista feels like she has a strange body shape because she doesn’t have hips and she’s not fond of her large midsection. I let Krista know that she should feel good that she has what I have coined as a “Tulip shape”. She was also in luck that Eloquii just designed the Gena fit pant which addressed that very issue. We tried on a few items that looked amazing on Krista’s tulip shape (The Gena pants fit great). These were Krista’s favorite looks.
She also LOVED this velvet pleated skirt and honestly, I can’t blame her she looks amazing!
