International Women’s Day is just a month away. How do you empower the women in your life?
A core message that you will see often on Musings of a Curvy Lady is one of positivity, visibility and support for women no matter what they look like.
Support is a verb. It’s an action word which requires effort to carry out. Over the last few years supporting women in particular has been a popular subject to talk, tweet and hashtag about.
But like many things that can be sucked into the social media trend vortex, the significance of an important movement or idea is lost or watered down. It becomes nothing more than a trending hashtag to appear empathetic to an issue or cause when it’s really a branding tactic.
I’m not about that.
What I am about is cultivating and promoting real, genuine and uplifting bonds and relationships with women. There’s plenty of room for all of us to succeed just as we are without having to morph into something that we are not. There is beauty and power in the dynamic differences in women. Where there is balance the world gets better.
Gibson has teamed up with 9 different influencers from diverse backgrounds, styles, stories and strengths that embody IWD’s theme #BalanceforBetter in their lives.
They’ve designed personal namesake pieces that reflect our individual style and differences while the whole collection has a cohesive feel that is totally Gibson.
I can’t wait to update you on my piece — The Thamarr Skirt!
I’m so excited for you to see it and have the opportunity to shop my piece as well as the entire collection next month. It’s definitely feminine and fun and you will want to wear it over and over as the weather gets warmer.
Another awesome part of this special collaboration is that we all got to choose a charity to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sales of the Gibson International Women’s Day Collection.
My charity is Pine Castle Jacksonville — an organization that serves adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families helping to empower them to live and achieve their highest potential regardless of the severity of their disability. My sibling with autism has been attending Pine Castle for 4 years and they are so amazing and make such a difference in our lives.
Make sure you are following me along on Instagram to watch sneak peeks of the collection and more information about the launch and the other influencers. You can meet them below and shop my current favorites from Gibson now available at Nordstrom.
