HEY TIFF, WHAT IS STYLECON?

 

You’ve probably seen all my posts on social media about StyleCon and I’m getting more and more messages asking exactly what it is. This past Spring, I was introduced to the fabulous Irene Martino, co-founder of the style conference called StyleCon. She has massive success with it in Cali and decided to branch out and bring it to DFW. We’re so glad she did!  When Irene shared with me her vision for this year’s theme, The Beauty Of Empowerment, I immediately jumped on board. It has also been part of my vision for SOS to unite with larger platforms like conferences, workshops and through speaking engagements. StyleCon is all of those in one event! Yeehaw!

WILL I SEE YOU THIS SATURDAY?

It’s an honor to co-host the stage with YouTube sensation, Jeanine Amapola and moderate several insightful discussions with some of DFW’s most influential in the areas of fashion, beauty, entrepreneurship, relationships and personal style.  Several of my close friends will be part of this event making it extra special. I will be hosting the panels in the first part of the day. Check out the this spectacular lineup:
Ladyboss, Mama & TV Personality, Catherine Lowe is our keynote speaker!
StyleCon brings together a community of fashion and beauty lovers, digital influencers, and style and tastemakers with brands to engage, discuss, follow and influence. Top stylists and makeup artists will showcase their talents with complimentary pamper stations including hair, makeup, lashes, and nails.
The Beauty of Empowerment is this year’s theme on the StyleStage with keynote speakers, blogger panels, and style and fashion presentations.
Network with like-minded individuals while listening to inspirational entrepreneurs in the style business.
My personal intention for StyleCon is for every woman who walks through the door to leave walking a bit taller, empowered with nuggets of wisdom, and inspired to elevate her life, her brand and her influence.

ON THE CATWALK FOR A CAUSE: Polished Fashion Show

Polished Fashion Show Models with Founder Kat Armstrong (centered in red)

____________________________

Last week, I had the pleasure and honor to walk in the annual Polished Fashion Show at Belk. When founder Kat Armstrong asked me to be part of it I couldn’t say YESSSS fast enough. I admire her tremendously and what she’s created to give faith-filled entrepreneurial women a place to connect and grow. When I first moved back to Dallas, I went through a period of sadness because I didn’t think the women here “spoke my language”. By the grace of God, over time I found a beautiful tribe of like-minded women who also believe in being spirit-led in every aspect of life.

So often spirit-led, mission-driven women feel they should separate their business and their faith. 

After all, faith is for early-risers on Sunday mornings, and the rest of the week is meant for work and fun, right? We couldn’t disagree more. Back in 2008, we took a closer look at the up-and-coming young professional workforce. We saw that not only are they leaving empty spots in the pew, but they’re leaving their faith at home when they head to work.  The young professional women of this generation are smarter and more forward-thinking than any generation before. But life is still hard, and we all face challenges that we can’t overcome alone. That’s why we launched Polished – to give women a place to find a community of women just like them. And while we’re there, we talk about how faith isn’t just for a dusty corner of an old bookshelf; it’s relevant to situations we face every day in real life. via Polishedonline.org

To get connected, I highly recommend attending their monthly luncheons. The first Wednesday of the month, Polished Dallas hosts a luncheon with an inspiring speaker. For dates, location and registration details check HERE.

Also, make sure to attend next years fashion show. It was a blast and so refreshing to be part of an event where the women are truly bright lights fanning each others flames. You could feel God right there in the midst of Belk. Many events can feel stuffy and give you social anxiety, but you could sense a sigh of relief and level of comfort among the women. Hope to see you there!
