Find Your Perfect Bra Fit

It’s a typical Monday morning. You walk into the office, briefcase in one hand, latte in the other. Your heels are clicking on the newly shined floors as you move from the elevator to your office. You have a 9am meeting and it’s already 8:45am, which means you barely have time to slip off your coat and do your initial check of emails before heading to the conference room. As you walk in, you feel confident and prepared to make your presentation at the meeting. 

Now is not the time to be concerned with the bra you are wearing.

No matter how great your blouse or sweater looks, the layers you wear beneath them matter just as much, if not more so in some cases.

"Without proper foundations, there can be no fashion."

Undergarments help form the foundation of what we wear, with the bra being the key piece in providing support, shape and comfort. You can choose from a range of styles like halters, strapless, push-up, wireless, unlined, etc. But no matter the style you choose, the perfect fit should remain a priority. 

Queen of Rococo

Versailles. A place of luxury, dreams, politics and romance. The palace served as the heart of the French court for over 100 years during the 17th and 18th centuries.

It was within the palace’s shimmering walls that Marie Antoinette made her home as the Dauphine and then the Queen of France. Ruling the cultural and political scene in the years before the French Revolution, Marie Antoinette became a fashion icon.

During the Rococo era, Marie Antoinette embodied the stylistic notions of the movement by embracing the romantic details, ornamentation and light hearted spirit in her fashion choices. Rococo fashion often included pastel shades, ribbons, bows and an air of frivolity.

If Marie Antoinette was still alive and reigning from the palace of Versailles, she would surely be dressed in Thom Browne’s Spring 2020 collection. The designs were dripping in romance and whimsy. 

Embrace Ambition

“Am-bi-tion,” noun: A strong desire to do or to achieve something, typically requiring determination and hard work. 

Ambition has long been treated as a taboo or dirty word in relation to women. Though men can make goals, seek promotions and reach for new heights of success, the same actions in women are often viewed in a negative light. And it’s not only men that look down on ambitious women. Other women are just as guilty of making judgments and harboring this gender bias.

Research has shown that men and women can have the same credentials and produce the same results, yet be perceived differently. A study was conducted at a university where students were given the same case study, but some received a case about Heidi and others about Howard. Though both cases showcased the character as a successful Silicon Valley venture capitalist, Heidi was perceived to be less likable and less likely to be hired, by both female and male students.  

Negative perceptions of women in power and leadership persist like those from the case study, as well as more tangible disadvantages such as lack of mentors and access to key networks. Knowing this, Tory Burch has stepped in to help close the “ambition gap.” 

Disco Diva in the Office

It might be a new decade, but that doesn’t mean that fashion doesn’t still look to history for a bit of inspiration. 1970s flair made an evident appearance in the Kate Spade Fall 2019 collection. Velvet suits, flowing shirt dresses, snappy patchwork and cozy faux fur and shearling ..it’s enough to make “Saturday Night Fever” era John Travolta proud. 
Brocade suit

The power suit got a vintage reboot with luxe velvet fabrics and shimmering brocades. The silhouettes featured wide leg pants, not too different from bell bottoms worn by hippies and disco divas of the 1970s.

It’s time to become who you were made to be.” 

These are the final words of Rachel Hollis in “Girl, Stop Apologizing.” Though used as a conclusion, they also serve as the perfect start to the journey she takes you on in the book.
