Talbots Because Im a Lady Campaign
When I think of being a lady in the traditional sense, I think of the perfect woman – elegant, always polite, never offensive, always has dinner on the table, and she is dressed to perfection. The problem is though, the idea of the perfect lady is totally different than how my life really is.
I will admit it, my life borders on controlled chaos so much of the time. I am a doctor, a wife, a mom to four, and I’m crazy enough to run a fashion blog on top of it all. Many people think that my life looks easy, but that is far from the case. Mornings are a bit crazy at our house, as it is a bit like hearding cats trying to get four young children out the door and off to school. Work itself is nonstop throughout the day, as patients always need my help. I leave work at 5:30 to come home and cook dinner/run kids to their activities. Blogging is done at night and on the weekends. I try to get dinner on the table, but sometimes it is takeout. I try to be polite, but on more than one occasion I have been told I am “bossy”. And when given the chance, I am happy enough to wear yoga pants and a sweatshirt. And you know what, that is perfectly OK for today’s modern woman. It has to be!
I have been a loyal Talbots shopper for years. I love their classic, modern styles that always make me look and feel my best! Talbots offers sizing of all different ranges, and their petite styles are what I like the most. So when I learned that Talbots was launching their new #BecauseI’mALady campaign, I couldn’t be more thrilled! The Because Im a Lady campaign is celebrating what it means to be a modern “lady” – intelligent, witty, and most of all a real woman you can sit and laugh with.
I love that Talbots is taking a leading role in empowering women. Talbot’s wants to “set the record straight”. According to Talbots, “The term “lady” has previously been used to describe a “gentle and polite woman.” But today, being a lady doesn’t come with the same set of prim and proper rules, manners and meanings it did fifty years ago. Which is why we at Talbots – a company made up of 92% women – are here to evolve this old-fashioned word and celebrate the modern classic women redefining it. Because today, being a “lady” is defining it for yourself and being unapologetically you – real, confident, fun and imperfectly enchanting.”
Check out what Talbot’s had to say to Mirriam Webster about the meaning of the word “lady”:
So what does being a lady mean to me? It means being confident and considerate of others. It means despite the chaos, I make it a point to spend quality time with my husband and kids. It means it is OK if the house isn’t perfectly clean. It means if I get a moment to myself I will fully embrace it. And it means I will spend more time laughing hysterically with friends and family as that is what is really important.
