I'm proud to have the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Talbots, to help spread the word about their latest collection. Talbots and O, The Oprah Magazine have partnered together to create a gorgeous limited-edition seven piece capsule collection benefiting Dress for Success.
Dress for Success is an amazing international not-for-profit organization that helps women re-enter the workforce. They provide women with a network of support, professional attire and career developmental tools that will help them in their journey.
When deciding on how to style the pieces, I thought of the importance of having staples in your closet. Items that can easily be worn with a variety of outfits. A classic navy peacoat can easily be accessorized with a colourful scarf. Nude pumps are a must have as far as I'm concerned. These heels have most definitely gotten the most wear out of any of the heels that I own. They go with everything. There was a gentle snowfall happening while we shot this look, so a toque helped to keep me warm!
The pants from the collection are so wonderful and can certainly be dressed up or down, which makes them the kind of piece that you want to own. The detail on the blouse is beautiful! I love the tuxedo front and I promise you that it looks just as amazing when worn with a pair of jeans! Done!
30% of the net proceeds of any pieces purchased from the collection between February 22nd - April 3rd, will benefit Dress for Success. Talbots stores will be accepting gently worn clothing from March 3rd - March 6th (a great time to do some spring cleaning!), as well as monetary donations until April 3rd. All monetary and clothing donations will go directly to Dress for Success. Last year, Talbots raised $500,000 and collected over 4,000 boxes of clothing for Dress for Success! The goal is to double that this year!
More information of how the collection came to life and behind-the-scenes photos can be found here. There is also a feature in the March issue of O, The Oprah Magazine.
