- The Vintage Jewelry Supplies Co. Inc.Small Business Owner, 1989 - present
My career in the fashion industry began
in 1976 when I became the Visual Merchandise Manager for three Belk Department
Stores. Later as the Corporate Director of eight Cosmetic Departments for Rices
Nachman's Department Stores and then the District Manager of a chain of
boutiques, I learned even more about projecting a professional image that fit
my soft contrast coloring and my subdued personality.
My first venture as a business owner was a consulting firm named 'Career Image', which also included public speaking and appearances at seminars throughout the southeast United States to present the concept of using your best colors and clothing shapes to build a wardrobe that works for you in any situation. I conducted personal consultations at the client's closet and accompanied them on well planned shopping trips afterward.
My current position evolved after being a professional boutique jewelry designer for more than ten years. As the President of Vintage Jewelry Supplies Company I still must know current trends in fashion and buy what is needed to fit those trends months in advance so I continue to study current fashions and trends. I'm happy to share the pictures of outfit ideas and tips that might be helpful to you.
