From time to time I post interesting fashion related events on my events page.   There is usually a summary of the events listed in the sidebar.  But once in a while there is an event that I feel needs that little extra bit of attention.  Sweet Talk is one of those events.

I have a real passion for helping women grow their leadership skills.  It is for that reason that I sit on the Advisory Board of the Women in Leadership Foundation (WIL).  They do great work developing programs to help women, of all ages and career streams, grow their leadership skills.  I firmly believe all women can learn from each other, and that by growing individually we create large scale change.   WIL uses relatable role models to help inspire us.  And they host fun events to help us network outside our usual circle.  

Sweet Talk combines my two passions for fashion and women's leadership.  It is a fun, stylish networking event that brings women together with fashion, decadent desserts and wine.  You'll be able to network. And you'll get some stylish tips from Celebrity Television Stylist and Image Consultant Tracy Richardson.  Tracy presented at last year's event and her interactive presentation style was a real hit. This year she is going to talk about The Dress and she will use several audience members to illustrate how different body shapes and sizes determine which style works on your body. 

I know it is a busy month with back-to-school and lots of events.  But I can't imagine what else would be better than enjoying some chocolate, wine and fashion with a girlfriend or two.
