25 Feb Styling With Purpose
“Dedicated to our most vulnerable women, who are on a journey of self-discovery, and self love.” – Carla Jayne Smith
Carla has been styling with a purpose for over 30 years, building confidence in women. Our women come from all walks of life and from all types of situations such as drug and alcohol addiction, prison, or probation, violent or destructive relationships, sexual abuse, and mental health issues. Often, they have been stripped of their confidence, self-worth, identity and feel that they are not deserving of anything good. One woman told me that for many years she felt dirty, disgusting, and ashamed to even exist after what had happened to her. There are so many harrowing stories that are shared during our “real talk” part of the program, they can share whatever they wish, or not share at all.
The program is a creative and down-to-earth approach to healing women that are broken and trying to rebuild themselves and get back into the workforce, the program teaches valuable life skills, changing mindsets, and connecting for future opportunities. The goal of course is to empower the women to hold their head high, walk tall and be proud of who they are. Along with goal setting, creative visualization, we give tips on personal presentation and grooming, styling for job interviews and lifestyle. We also give tips on dressing to your body shape, what to look for when shopping and how to make the most of opportunity shopping when you are on a tight budget. We custom design the program for that organization and its client needs. The programs are normally 3-day workshops, however, we also do 1-day or 1-week workshops.
“This program has changed my life and my focus moving forward, it has given me back my confidence, I now know that I am worthy!” – Lisa
