As female entrepreneurs, we know first hand that there’s nothing more important than entering a big meeting with confidence. While your dress or suit is far from what matters most, it’s a solid place to start: A polished presentation can only help your cause!
Of course, even with ample preparation, life happens. You might find yourself in a situation like our founder, Susan: After traveling to another city for a major meeting and spilling coffee right down the front of her white blouse, Susan needed a new look, stat. As Susan discovered, there’s nowhere like Nordstrom when you’re in a pinch. If you’re in a city, chances are there’s a Nordie’s nearby with stunning sheaths at every price point.
