In this jam session, Kristen Fanarakis, founder of Senza Tempo Fashion, will teach you how to curate your wardrobe to fit the image you want to project.

Thursday, September 7, 2017 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT

Scientists estimate that we judge people within 3-5 seconds of meeting them. The human tendency to judge a book by its cover is extensively studied by scientists. They’ve repeatedly shown that our snap judgements tend to overpower our decision making. Before you blink, people have drawn conclusions about you. Clothing is our visual vocabulary and the first impression we make. Between work, family, friends and all of our other commitments, however, shopping for clothes often falls to the bottom of our to do lists.

Don’t approach shopping for your wardrobe as a hobby, afterthought or task to be outsourced. It’s as important as your education and experience when it comes to managing your career and personal brand.

In this jam session, Kristen Fanarakis, founder of Senza Tempo Fashion, will help you:

  • Identify your signature style
  • Build a shopping plan
  • Choose the right clothes to help you fit the image you want to present

Kristen Fanarakis spent over a decade working on Wall Street in foreign exchange investing and as a sales-trader before she became a fashion entrepreneur. She launched Senza Tempo Fashion because she couldn't find well made wardrobe basics that were accessibly priced. Women are busier than ever and have more choices than ever when it comes to clothing — yet most women will complain they have nothing to wear and that there's nothing to buy. Kristen's goal is to make shopping easier by helping women not just shop, but curate their closets.

I attended an Ellevate networking event. I was shocked at how casually everyone dressed. I wore a patterned dress and everyone else wore pants, no jackets and some even work jeans.

What types of fabric would you recommend looking for in quality clothes that will last? How important is dry cleaning versus washing clothes in the washing machine? Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
