It’s Sunday, I have a day off but as with most days off, I have loads of house chores to do.
The main objective for today:Wardrobe organisation.
Ever get up in the morning and realise you have a meeting, therefore, you need to wear a certain outfit? Everything is everywhere and to co-ordinate is a nightmare. A friend of mine has just turned her spare room into a dressing room, it's amazing! I keep saying I’m going to buy all black suits, blouses and jumpers, then there is no matching thought needed. You can always dress it up with jewellery, but as I feel a little weighty at present they need to be a good fit! The quest continues here Re-vamping the work wardrobe.
Anyway the reason for me telling you about my clothing issues is because when I do sort my wardrobe out, I'm going to be ruthless and put to one side the clothes I'm never going to diet and get into 😳, and would better suit someone else!
Smart Works is a UK charity that provides high quality interview clothes, styling advice and interview training to women in need. Their Lead Manager Fiona Gunnion covers the Manchester area. Fiona said, ”Our two-hour dressing and interview preparation service sits at the heart of Smart Works”. Each woman receives a high-quality interview outfit (theirs to keep) tailored to their taste and style by a Smart Works’ stylists, followed by dedicated one-to-one interview training with an experienced recruitment, HR or coaching professional.
Hesketh James, Manchester is now a collection point for the work clothes, so if like me, you have a suit that you no longer fit into or wear then please contact us and we can arrange collection/drop off.
