Wore this today for a quick meeting for Dress for Success. It's such an amazing charity and it's definitely worth googling. Two years ago, I was approached by CYP to organise an event with Style Christchurch called "High Tea in High Heels". In short - it was truly a success. This lead to an opportunity to meet up with Joi Gordon and a further meeting at the New York City office mid last year. I'm fortunate enough to be involved in the set up committee here in Melbourne.
Finally I found a charity that made sense to me. That I could give something tangible (be is a suit) to a disadvantaged women and see her face light up is beyond words. The flow on effect of this charity is mind boggling - you put a suit on a women for her first job in order for her to put food on the table for her children, for them to go to better schools, for them to lead better lives. Bill Cunningham said it right: "Clothes are the armor of our reality". He's a wise, wise man.
