The Limited Giveaway and Dress for Success

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

I am so thrilled to be working on this post! If there is something I am passionate about, its empowering other women. As a business owner, I get to see first hand what its like to be and feel empowered, whether it be making basic decisions on a day to day basis or working with other business owners.

I love having the opportunity to make my place in the world as an empowered business owner (however small)- a feeling that I wish more women could feel! Unfortunately, not all women are given that opportunity because of various circumstances. That's where Dress for Success comes in! Dress for Success is this amazing organization that provides a suit for women for an interview, and provide one more when they secure a job! In addition to providing these women with the attire needed to help obtain a job, Dress for Success also provides support and career development tools. If that isn't empowering then I don't know what is!

And, from a fashion point of view, the second suit a woman receives is able to be mixed and matched, so they essentially have more than one outfit- how awesome is that?!?! Sometimes, if available, accessories are even provided! It may seem like something minor, but something like a new suit can be the foundation for a confidant and professional woman, which can lead to big successes!



The Limited is partnering with Dress for Success to celebrate 50 wonderful years in business and to celebrate the personal achievements of women, your "Style Stories!" The Limited is asking women, asking YOU, to share a moment of success from your life. By doing that, you will help make a difference in the lives of women who could use a little inspiration! This moment of success can be anything from a fitness milestone, a success within your family, or simply just a life lesson you learned! You never know when your story can inspire others!

For every story that is submitted by you and others, The Limited with donate $1 to Dress for Success (up to $50,000)! Can you just imagine how many women that will help? You can submit your personal success story right here!

I really, truly believe that Dress for Success is such a great organization that does great things. I think as women its so important that we take time to help and encourage each other. So many times women try to bring each other down in order to succeed- why not just take a breather and help a sister out?

One more awesome thing- The Limited is so excited about partnering with Dress for Success that they are giving away a $50 gift card! Just enter below, and please, take a few minutes to share your success story!

  1. My very first big success story is when I sold my first house! It was actually a condo, and it was a pleasure helping the sellers well and getting my first commission check. Now I strive to succeed every day and it's definitely an on going process! Sometimes you fail but you just have to get back up and at it again!

  3. First off, I love organizations like this! I've been trying to find one locally to donate my dress clothes to from my corporate past life. My success story story is being a first generation college grad. My two sisters went on to graduate from college too after me. We all moved away from the small town we grew up in and live in the Dallas area together now. Great giveaway!

  5. My first big success was in college when I walked onto an NCAA D1 sports team after only playing the sport for a few years.

  6. My 'dress for success' story involves a very special purse. A good friend had an unused, classic Coach bag that just wasn't her style. She gave it to me and told me to bring it to an upcoming job interview, "for luck". I got the job and have taken that purse to every interview since. I even loan it out to friends when they have interviews!!
