Most of us know the power of a first impression – eye contact, firm handshake, bright smile. But, do we put enough importance on our appearance when it comes to first impressions? In a city like Vancouver where so many of us either work from home, or in very casual offices, after work networking events or drinks with friends can sometimes look like the “before” in a What Not to Wear episode.
The importance of a polished, industry-appropriate wardrobe cannot be overstated when it comes to first impressions, job interviews, networking opportunities, and simply putting your best foot forward in your career.
West 4th Avenue boutique, Twist Fashions, offers the working professional woman a one-stop shopping experience that will have you styled and wardrobed (whatever your profession – lawyer, graphic designer, or full-time mom) in 45 minutes flat. Their knowledgeable stylists know the boutique’s inventory inside and out – and can easily pin point which cuts, fits and styles will work best for your body, and your lifestyle. Even better? They offer complimentary tailoring on one item each time you shop.
Networking in Van will be featuring a monthly style blog from Twist Fashions, highlighting new looks from the store, as well as tips for dressing your best at work.
