Dream In Black with AT&T

For me Black History does not take place only during the month of February.  As an African American, I celebrate my history and my culture everyday.  It is often difficult to see why so few fail to recognize the enormous contributions that African Americans have made to each and every part of our current lives, from the fields of science, medicine, engineering, politics and entertainment.   That is why when you see corporations and companies that take time to not only recognize but invest in the greatness of African Americans you acknowledge their efforts.

I am happy to share that AT&T is one of those entities.  AT&T has been celebrating African Americans throughout the year as well, if it is not the work they are doing to improve communities of color, it is through campaigns such as their #DREAMINBLACK campaign which launched on February 1.

The #DreamInBlack campaign not only has a list of 28 Future Makers list.  While the list is awesome with celebrities such as Queen Latifah, Zendaya and Van Jones, there are more of us out there making history as well.  They are offering others who are making history in their communities to be celebrated as well.  Current Black History makers can win a chance to win a spot on the list and more!

Dream in Black is an always-on platform where AT&T celebrated Black culture and the creators who shape it.  Dream in Black embodies a mindset where success can look like anything we can dream.

Here in Chicago AT&T is bringing one of its #DreamInBlack honorees DeVon Franklin to one of its local stares for a meet and greet.  Join in celebrating Dream in Black28! at the AT&T store at 8658 S. Cottage Grove Ave between 6–8pm on Thursday February 7, 2019 to meet . Learn how you can get his new book The Truth About Men courtesy of ! While supplies lasts.

Brunch and Style Party @ Style Room 326

Style Room 326 Brunch and Style

I spent the first weekend of this year at the Brunch and Style Party at Style Room 326Style Room 326 is the first of its kind members only wholesale, retail fashion showroom for women.  Owner Teresa Wilkes Washington hosted a group of fashionable, professional women for an afternoon of brunch, mimosas and fashion conversation.  It was an awesome experience.

Each participant was asked to bring an item of clothing that they had not worn.  Teresa and the other women in attendance provided excellent fashion advice on how to style the pieces and offered suggestions on how and where to best wear the selected items.  It was like having a group of your closest best friends in your closet helping you pull outfits together.  Did I mention that there was also endless mimosas?

In addition to talk about fashion and proper foundational garments (all of us women need that conversation at least once or twice in our lives), there was a makeup artist on hand to assist us in trying out different looks with our makeup.  Honestly, no matter how old you are what women doesn’t enjoy playing or experimenting in makeup from time to time.  Remember the mimosas?

All of us let the event with wonderful parting gifts which included a membership to the showroom.  I will definitely be using my membership this year.  There are some excellent options and the opportunity to shop in an environment where there are no crowds or overbearing sales people makes the shopping experience more enjoyable for me.  If that is your type of shopping I recommend that you stop by Style Room 326.  I cannot guarantee that there will be mimosas, but there were mimosas at the Brunch and Style Event.

If you have never been to Style Room 326, I suggest you go by, take a look at the amazing fashion they have and sign up for your membership.  The membership is affordable, so don’t worry about breaking the bank.  If you follow Teresa or the showroom on social media you will always see Teresa modeling pieces that are available in the showroom, pieces that you will not see on everyone.

Style Room 326 offers many benefits to its members.  The ability to gain first access to exclusive fashion shows, shopping for classic, timeless pieces for your wardrobe and the ability to do so in an environment that evokes fabulous is what Style Room 326 offers.  Teresa has done an amazing job of curating a fashion experience, that will have you coming back for more and waiting for the hottest new arrivals.  If you have a passion for fashion, then Style Room 326 should be at the top of your shopping list.

Style Room 326 is located at 1722 W. Belmont Ave., Chicago or visit their website http://www.styleroom326.com
