Saks Fifth Avenue in Troy, Mich. recently held a “Dress for Success” event for the Women’s Employee Resource Network of Beaumont Health System. More than 100 employees attended the interactive event which featured mini-makeovers and spring trends. For the working women, we all learned a great tip — put a stylish clutch inside your workbag for transitioning from the office to an evening event. There are some investment pieces that should be in everyone’s closet — a simple black dress and a leather jacket. One can easily change the look with a scarf or necklace. Top spring 2015 trends include: fringe, florals, suede and an athletic chic look. One staple in the beauty department is the Advanced Night Repair by Estee Lauder.
I’ve featured some of the trends above and my colleagues at Beaumont Health System.
Special thanks to Ina Levinson and Maureen Conway at Saks.
Motown bloggers have a local style, but their writings are worthy of a national audience.
There are so many talented bloggers in the “D,” but I will focus on a few that I know personally– Suzy Farbman, Judi Schram and Elyse Folytn.
Suzy Farbman has been published since she was a teen. From magazine articles to books, Suzy is one talented lady. And I must add — nice. She was a mentor to me when I started freelancing. Suzy is part of readthespirit.com which I have featured before. It’s an online magazine, a blog, and bookstore founded by writer David Crumm. Her latest post is about a Motowner, Lori Simon, who moved to Florida and discovered her artistic talents.
Judi’s musings is a delightful blog by Judi Schram. Judi describes her blog as a “lighthearted look at aging for women of the boomer generation.” In the style of the late poet and author Shel Silverstein, her verses rhyme with a message that will put a smile on your face. They are always accompanied by an engaging graphic, like the one below.
Elyse Foltyn’s blog SurvivorsStill is about growing up as a child of a Holocaust survivor. It’s an important story that needs to be shared. We’ve all read about stories and seen movies of the survivors, but the viewpoints of the children are powerful too.
