Round-up Week 7
Everything that I am writing about today is in Polish only, but I decided to translate it anyway – maybe some of you speak Polish 😉
Today I would like to recommend something from the fashion sector. I bought it a few months ago, and read it all during one weekend as it’s written in a very light and pleasant manner. It’s not easy to comply with the advice, but I am slowly trying to implement some of her recommendations, e.g. to buy less. Highly RECOMMENDED.
There will be a new post this weekend on my thoughts regarding how to be trendy and how to do shopping without doing shopping. How is this possible? You will know the answer soon – check it out on my fanpage on FB, where I always put info about upcoming posts and other stuff.
„Slow Fashion. Fashion Revolution” by Joanna Glogaza
Joanna Glogaza – a fashion admirer, lost in the piles of bargain sales clothes on which she spent much more than she should have. She decided to make a fashion detox, clean up her wardrobe, and she understood that she doesn’t need either a little black dress or a trench coat out of anyone elses must have list – she realized that she looks much better in navy blue and a biker jacket.
Today she writes one of the most popular lifestyle blogs in Poland about slow fashion – styledigger.com. In her book she convinces everyone, that they should cherish (nurse) her/his own style, instead of copying current fashion with low cost knockoffs which are then exchanged every season because of new trends. By buying less, you can in fact buy “more” and look better.
This week was GOOD because…#smallpleasures #joyoflife
On Thursday February 18, I had the pleasure to take part in a “Brafitting Evening” organized by Change Lingerie shop in MODO mall at 22 Łopuszańska Street. You can find a wide range of great lingerie there (bra cups available up till size K!).
I left this shop very happy, as I managed to find a pretty and comfy bra, and as you may have noticed, my size is rather big, so finding an appropriate bra is not very easy. Most of all, I was delighted with the prices – very good balance between quality and cost. In the pictures above, you can see Liliana Kostka-Majewska, the owner of Change Lingerie shop.
On Friday February 19th, I had the pleasure to take part in a business meeting titled “Entrepreneurial Women’s Network Breakfast”. The guest of honor was Katarzyna Dorsey and Magda Kropaczek-Ciaś, founders of yosh.pl, which is a purchasing platform that aggregates offers of a few on-line shops, like: Zalando, Aswear, Mostrami, Asos, Sephora, and Douglas.
After careers in marketing with such companies as Coca-Cola, Nestle, Benckiser, and Carlsberg, Katarzyna and Magda decided to become entrepreneurs. At the beginning, they were in advertising, and restaurant and consulting business. Over two years ago they focused on e-commerce, creating a fashion aggregator yosh.pl which focuses on purchasing personalization. Moreover, they also realized two other fashion oriented internet projectsfunded with EU support.
Here is some advice from Katarzyna and Magda:
„Look for support and mentors from the very beginning, as it is well worth using their experience”.
„Women say that they want to have their own business in order to have more free time and spend less time at work. Now I work much more, but at the time that I decide”.
„I do not recommend to run your business with your husband;). It badly influences on the family life, There cannot be two bosses. A good business partner is something different. It’s a great solution. We have natural division deriving from our competencies and personality”.
„A Corporation is a big experienced machine. In start-up everything is different. So if you are planning anything give yourself twice as much time. You need a lot of patience and humility”.
If you are looking for a place where you can:
- meet other women who have their own businesses
- exchange contacts
- find inspirations and advice
this is a perfect place for you. Highly RECOMMENDED!
WHY was this week GOOD FOR YOU?
