Why I Chose This Cover Photo

 

I didn't choose the photo above to represent my Facebook Page or my blog by accident. I combed through all of Savvi's marketing materials and I thought this one not only best represents the brand, but also the diversity among women that I am so thankful for. 

Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion have been hot topics everywhere you look these days and I find it to be upsetting and uplifting at the same time. The upsetting part is the fact that we need to even be discussing this topic. By now we should be smart enough to know better than to feel intimated by other women. We are all in this life together. And what a beautiful life it is! The uplifting part is that all of these topics have become HOT and ON TREND. It upsets me that we had to wait this long to get all of us ladies on the diversity train, but at least we are here now! And by diversity, I not only mean looks, but I mostly mean thoughts and different views through the eyes of women of all different backgrounds. We have so much to learn from each other. I am so glad we are finally HERE. Women supporting women. Yes, we compete with each other, whether it be for a job position, a political stance, a certain physique, or anything else you can think of that we have an opinion about. However, we are living in a time where it is finally okay to not always be the winner! We all have so much to learn from each other. We all can cheer for each other! And when we fail we cry for a day or maybe even two, but then we pull up our leggings and persevere! I was born to support you and you were born to support me. I believe that we are finally all clear on that now. There is no need to tear each other down. There is no need to be offended by one another. And if we are feeling either one of those things because we are human, we should be woman enough to just talk about it with each other. Because we are all in this life together, trying to make it better each and every day for ourselves, our families, and everyone in the world. 

In high school I didn't belong to any sort of group. I actually struggled a lot in my head. I honestly didn't know where I fit in. I tried to be friendly with everyone, but that was so difficult in a world where if you didn't belong to a certain group, you were considered a bit strange. I am sure people wondered about me. I was completely an individual and it felt really lonely. I had friends, but not super close friends. My best friend since kindergarten seemed to fit in with everyone else. That was difficult for me once we hit high school. My high school days really sucked. I didn't think that anyone really cared about who I actually was and I began to think that there was something wrong with me. I was quiet and I felt awkward at social events. I didn't really do sports. I danced ballet after school, mostly with adults. 

Now that I am 46 years old, I realize that I struggled when I was younger because I have always had this sense of curiosity about everyone. I truly was interested in how everyone operated. I wanted to know about everyones point of view because I am simply curious. To me, it didn't matter how rich or poor they were, or what color skin they had, or what type of family they came from. I honestly didn't event see any of that. I was just curious about it all. As it turns out, this was not a bad thing! 

To this day, I am happy to say that I celebrate everyone. And as far as my work with Savvi goes, I am happy that I have finally found a place where I fit in because all are welcome here and that is the type of place where I do my best work. And you are welcomed to join me!

Why I decided to become a Savvi Independent Stylist

 Some of you may be wondering why I decided to take on something else in my life. While I am currently trying to balance EVERYTHING in my life, why take on something else? Read on if you would like to know....

Right now I am currently the assistant store manager at the L.L.Bean in Bangor, Maine. I am currently aspiring to become the next store manager and will be interviewing this coming Tuesday. Please send your positive vibes my way! In addition to that, I am also studying to become a real estate agent. My goal is to begin practicing real estate with Better Homes and Gardens in a part time capacity in January 2020. Some people have told me that to be lucrative in the real estate business, one must practice this profession full time. But I have to start somewhere. So here I am, starting. I am also the founder of an online company called The Maine Square. You may have heard of it. I sell handmade preppy New England style accessories. Some are made by myself, and my creative independent contractor, other items are made by a variety of makers who live in the USA and someday from all over the world. You would think that I have enough on my plate, however when my neighbor messaged me about Savvi, for some reason I stopped and read every word she had to say. 

Savvi is in its startup phase. Being an entrepreneur myself, I feel for anyone in a startup position. I think it is so exciting to be part of something that is small, to see it grow into something huge and amazing for everyone to enjoy! Plus, if you know me, you know how passionate I am about women's fashion and how it can affect how they feel about themselves. I would say that the number one reason why I decided to come on board with Savvi is because I LOVE helping women find clothes that they enjoy wearing and feel good in. Because if you FEEL good that means you become more confident which will allow you to gain the potential to reach your goals. Whether your goal is to be a stay at home mom, to volunteer more, to become your own boss, or to create your own company, YOU deserve to look great and feel great and I truly believe that clothing can do this for you! I am also passionate about answering questions and solving problems and I WANT to be there for my clients/customers. I am here for you always!

Before I dove into becoming a brand ambassador/stylist for Savvi, I really thought about it. My biggest concern was around sustainability, sourcing, and ethical practices. As it turns out those are Savvi's biggest biggest priorities. In the 5 minute video below, Savvi's lead designer Rachel Domingo really explains it all. 

I have two things to ask of you:

1. I ask that you be patient with me. Savvi is still learning and working through technology, systems, and inventory levels, therefore so am I. Fortunately I am the type of person who LOVES a challenge and will do anything to assist you in finding answers to all of your questions. 

2. Take a chance on me and my belief in Savvi. I truly believe in this company and where they are headed. I feel it in my heart and in my soul. This little company is growing every single day because people like you are taking a chance on people like me.
