Style Conversations

What better way to spend a Friday afternoon in one of the fashion capitals of the world, New York City, mingling and dining on Thai cuisine with some inspiring, motivational, and fashionable women discussing the fashion industry, everyday obstacles, and how to persevere through all of it.

Style Conversations is a series of luncheons in various cities to promote Sara Jones’s new book “The PlayBook To Essential Style”. The book covers many topics that will teach readers basic styling techniques to build a stylish and chic wardrobe. The playbook is all-inclusive with style advice, designing tips, and insight that emphasizes on self-expression through fashion and the importance of having fun with what you wear. The Playbook to Essential Style covers: Staple – essential pieces every wardrobe should have, dress codes, where to shop…and so much more! Within these pages, you will learn, build, and explore your essential style!

I have to highlight one chapter that caught my attention, which was dress code. The book features 10 different fashion styles and the specific events they are deemed for. I’m so glad she mentioned, business formal, business casual, and dressy casual! They coincide with Chic on Wall St. so well!.

While the luncheon was to promote “PlayBook To Essential Style”, it brought together several unique women passionate about similar topics. Designer/stylist, Sara Crawford-Jones of fashion brand Anara Original and published Author of The Playbook to Essential Style led the dialogue by discussing various topics of fashion, personal branding, owning success, or handling business. This private event provided us with the opportunity to network, pitch business ideas, and exchange sound advice that we could all benefit from.

In a beautiful restaurant filled with beautiful individuals inside and out, sharing an abundance of wisdom, how could you not leave there feeling more inspired and motivated? I gained more knowledge on industry rundowns, ways to be more authentic and consistent on my social media, and more comfort in knowing what I’m doing is beneficial and can leave a lasting impression on others. It was truly an honor to be hand-picked for this opportunity (even though we were extremely hot traveling around Times Square lol). Thank you Sara for allowing me to be apart of your pilot event!

Interested in attending the next Style Conversation event? The private event will take place on December 18th in Delaware. Be a part of this Stylish conversation, network, learn, and share.  To request an invitation or details for a Style Conversation near you visit www.saracjones.com.

“Style is ultimately about self-expression—reflecting your inner beauty onto the outside and sharing it through style choices by using a simple foundation and building onto it.” – Sara Crawford-Jones

IT’S MY BLOGAVERSARY!

 

Whoa, IT’S MY BLOGAVERSARY!

July 7th 2015, I launched my brainchild chiconwallst.com. After months of planning and designing, I decided to stop putting my dreams on hold and take the next steps to making my goals a reality.

To be 100% honest, I wasn’t going to celebrate this milestone. I’ve heard the phase, “only a small percentage of blogs survive within their first year”, & I feared that I had become that statistic! I hadn’t blogged like I wanted to, posted as often as I should have, or networked like I had planned & felt embarrassed for not living up to the hype I had created; however something in me & others around me refused to let me surrender.

If I’ve heard or re-instilled anything in me through this journey, it’s to NEVER GIVE UP!

Blogging is a PROCESS, not an overnight success story! When I began blogging, I thought “hey, people will see my vision, follow me, & I would get loads of support”, but that didn’t happen as planned or as soon as I expected. I stopped for a while because I thought it was pointless. No one would care about what they wore to work, or what I had to offer. However, I received loads of support from others that I never thought were paying attention to my brand. Without me noticing, I’ve allowed others to use their voice and skills in a creative way. I’ve motivated others to take action on their future and go after their dreams. Even though I felt like a failure, I had inspired others & with that, I couldn’t give up now!

With that being said, here are a few things I’ve heard in Year One:

Be Patient – Patience is my worst enemy! Like I mentioned, blogging isn’t easy. You will not gain thousands of followers overnight, unless you decide to buy them (OOPS). Just know that your vision will come together in time. Don’t rush the process!

Be Authentic – Everything I post relates to the brand and what I want my brand to be known for. Don’t try to be like the others, be you! Let your true ideas flourish and thrive. 

Collaborate & Network – If you have an idea that would be great with the assistance of another blogger, reach out! Even reach out to brands that align with yours! It doesn’t hurt to try. 

Find An Accountability Partner – This has been my biggest struggle. I have loads of posts drafted but sometimes lack the motivation. Find someone who will listen and check up on you to make sure you are continuing on with your goals (Thanks Jessica!!!!!) 

Finally…

Keep Learning! – As your blog grows, so does your level of learning. Learn from your experiences, failures, networking events, articles, etc. Anything that will expand your knowledge, use it to your advantage. 

Many may not know but for as long as I can remember I have loved fashion (creating, designing, sewing, etc.) Now, blogging is nowhere near fashion design, but it provides endless opportunities

to incorporate all my skills into one brand and bring it full circle.

Chic on Wall Street is still unique for the simple fact that no one has the style sense that I have or the vision to take corporate fashion by storm!

So as I enter my 2nd year of blogging, I pray and plan to accomplish a few goals…

  • Design and Revamp my website

  • Revamp my Logo & Gain ownership of my name

  • Continue to grow with my brand

I won’t make promises, but let time and my work do the talking.

Before I forget, thank you to my supporters, my family and friends who have read my posts, proofread my posts late at night and early in the morning, listened to my ideas, provided advice, provided suggestions, and continuously motivated me on my journey! ❤ Love you forever for that and more!

I hope you found this post interesting and possibly motivational to start making your own dreams reality! Feel free to leave comments down below!

– Be Wall Street Chic, XOXO
