I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Vanity Fair Lingerie. I received product samples to facilitate my review and compensation to thank me for my participation.
I am SO excited to chat with you guys about this today! I went over how my 24 hours in NYC with Vanity Fair went, I gave you tips to find the perfect bra, and now I’m going to help you go put those tips to good use with a super awesome promotion that Vanity Fair is presenting. BOGOGO, say that five times fast, I dare you. Vanity Fair is hosting special Buy One. Get One. Give One. events at major U.S retailers across the country.
Vanity Fair believes a bra can change a life, so when you buy one Vanity Fair bra in-store, you get one for free for yourself and Vanity Fair will donate a new bra to Dress for Success on your behalf to help a woman on her journey to economic independence. This campaign means so much to me, while in NYC, I had the opportunity to listen to an amazing woman who came through Dress for Success and couldn’t help but tear up as she spoke about the struggles she had been through and everything Dress for Success had done for her.
Dress for Success promotes economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. And I think this is something that is so important. Having this organization there to really help lift these women up when some of them are at the end of their rope and not sure what else to do. #BrasChangeLives is so true in so many ways. Sure a comfortable bra is something we all seek, feeling confident starts from within but is also attached to the clothes we wear. I know for me that a comfortable, well-fitting bra can be make or break for my attitude of the day. And I like to think that the women with Dress for Success who receive these bras that you and I get to give by purchasing our own will have the confidence they need to step out into the work force and kick butt. Along with the donation, Vanity Fair will ask shoppers to write a note of encouragement to be sent along with a bra to give a woman at Dress for Success a little lift.
I don’t know why but that video always brings me to tears. Without fail, I think about all of the women who Vanity Fair is helping through Dress for Success and it really makes me feel good. When you go to one of the events in your area and participate in the BOGOGO event it will directly impact local Dress for Success women and I love that.
I’m planning to hit up a few of the events in my area and I’ll tell you why. I feel like buying a new bra is empowering, I’m investing in myself and that always feels good. I’m being given two rewards for that investment, I get to grab a free bra for myself and know that my purchase is providing another bra for a women who wants to invest in herself and feel good about herself when she goes out to find a job that could shape her future.
