She loooks like an Angel

She loooks like an Angel

This beautiful 100% linen dress was donated during the Christmas break and is EXACTLY the kind of donation we love. Brand new, with tags still attached! The kind of item that made Angel’s eye’s light up before she’d even tried it on.

We think she looks great!

A huge thank you to the generous donor who gifted us this dress and the many individuals who continue to donate excellent quality, pre loved clothing that our clients feel confident and fabulous in!

Jordan River Service – Boutique Visit

There really isn’t much else to say, these words from our clients truly say it all ♥️

“It was amazing, I could cry”

“I feel like I am glowing”

“I feel lifted up and cannot get the smile off my face”

“I feel different”

We had the absolute pleasure of welcoming these four ladies in to the Boutique for a special styling session as part of their participation in the Women’s Leadership Loop program run by Jordan River Service Inc.

The Loop program was established to help the local women living in Bridgewater, Gagebrook and the surrounding areas to learn new skills, qualifications & experience and ultimately join or re join the workforce.

Many of the women participating in the program have been out of work for a long time and this is just one step towards making a change for the future.

The women weren’t necessarily visiting for interview or employment styling but were there for an intro to our service and to be made to feel special and valued for the time they spent with our volunteers.

Special shout out to Boutique Coordinator Clare and our volunteers Pene, Fiona and Linda.

Be Hers Boutique Visit

We had our second group of women from the Be Hers Employment Program come through the Boutique on Friday.

Our volunteers and team have loved working with the groups of women, tailoring our offering to ensure it needs their cultural needs and requirements.

We’ve loved working with the team from BeHers and look forward to working collaboratively with them in the future.

When women support each other, amazing things happen ♥️

Client Story – Sophia

Client Story – Sophia

This is Sophia and she is dressed and ready to go to an industry night as part of her studies and training.

At Dress for Success we don’t just support women going for interview and entering paid work, we also support women who are building their capacity to participate more in their community – whatever that looks like.

It might be volunteer opportunities, speaking at events or attending work placements or work experience.

All of these things require a level of personal presentation and most often, do not involve being paid for what you are doing. This is where we come in! We provide free clothing and confidence building to ensure that this barrier is removed for all women in Tasmania.

Participation in community can play a huge part in an individuals overall well-being and feeling of self confidence.
