Fashion Spotlight: Mrs. Emily
I had such a hard time titling this post that it still doesn't necessarily sit well with me. While Mrs. Emily is a fashion brand, (hence the "fashion spotlight" title) it goes far beyond the margins of aesthetics and merchandising. Emily Harris has created Mrs. Emily as a platform to champion not only the beauty but even more so the power of fashion. Emily comes from a humble understanding that we all face intimidating and difficult challenges in our lives that at times leave us feeling like we've fallen and don't even want to get up (#NotTodayLifeAlert). For some, the challenge is a job that demands constant growth and success. For others, it's the all day every day caring for young children with every fiber of your being. Whether it's these challenges or the many others that arise in our lives, we're always searching for the things that will help us make it through. It's the glass of wine at 11:00pm because that's the only time you've had for yourself all day. It's the Sunday night binge watching of The Office because you need a few laughs before the next work week begins. Trust me, I've been there. Sometimes it's the little things that we do for ourselves that help us keep putting one foot in front of the other. The philosophy of Mrs. Emily embraces and empathizes with our need for these little things in life. Emily gives us something that we can add to our tool belt of "little things", and that little thing is fashion. She explains, "Fashion is a tool we can use to empower us to get our big, intimidating, and at times unpleasant jobs done." This is where the power of fashion lies. It "...infuses us with confidence, which translates to productivity." How powerful it is to feel some control over our daily confidence and productivity simply by choosing to care about how we get dressed in the morning. This is the core of Mrs. Emily: fun and functional fashion that empowers us to do what's in front of us with confidence. Emily exudes this not only in her brand, but in her personality as well. I'm so grateful that I was able to connect with Emily and her brand. I highly recommend you take some time to do the same. Trust me, you won't regret it!
