“ABSOLUTELY! It has only strengthened me as a person. I realize that everything is not in my control and it’s ok to relinquish my control for help in areas I need it in. That God is bigger than my circumstances and He loves me…so I worry less and pray more. Then I leave the rest in His hands.”

Frances is a grandmother raising two young boys. “Without faith I would not be able to overcome the struggles/challenges that I face in my daily life.” Her faith allows her to focus on growth and light rather than difficulties. “Motherhood is the best academy for learning patience, compassion, caring, joy and critical thinking. Most of all, I learn how to embrace selflessness and still have dignity.”

    I’ve worked in front-row customer service, where visual and first time impressions, meant the difference between responsive, productive encounters and ineffective displays of dilettantism. Thereby, no artistic performance given, could serve as rescue. So, my theory was “smiles, bubbly, entertaining and instinctive”. Practically speaking, I chose “doubt-crushing uniforms. Each job needed to require a uniform, which spoke, without words; only I or my coworkers can help you.(imagine being a CUA agency) No matter what was needed to accomplish individual satisfaction, the dependability on what the uniform stood for; represented non-universal, specialized, nontraditional, non conforming education or certified, hands-on training. I knew my weakness was visual, due to any or no experience. Blue jeans occupied my wardrobe, from birth. Because it was uncomfortable, impractical(to me), noticeable, requiring additional upkeep and complicated finishes( the dreaded salon or heels), I wouldn’t even try and pull it off.
    Long story short? Those uniforms say a lot, but performance and skills are way out front. It’s much harder to convince than to convey. The one job I managed to retire with, was one which did not require, but allowed me the opportunity to look around the multi- billion dollar corporate world and experience gradual self expression, utilizing my outward appearance, as a testing module for any resourceful gain. It was, the first time in my life that there was no doubt or sense of insecurity. From Lane Bryant to Nordstrom and beyond; it was the most influential, critical time of my life. I discovered that it was safe to be pretty and womanly and nobody judged the moments. We enjoyed simple work expectation and indulged in show room attire, as a deep sense of pride and respect for the job. I’ll never forget those feelings of confidence, credibility, and promise. This is, once again, now that I’m retired, how I feel when I thumb through my ASHRO catalog or surf the site. My vanity is still intact, however. The price doesn’t mean a thing. It’s the personal growth and positive outcomes, that matter. With respect to personal beliefs, I am humbled. Some sense of “why?” is questionable. In retrospect, religious ovature resolves nothing. All have the same complex. I don’t grey it, yet but when at the pearly gates, I guess I HE won’t notice me in jeans.
    But that is a level of education I am not versed. Ain’t one yo judge…whatever works.
    So, I guess someone out there gets what I’m trying to say. ASHRO, to me, is a revelation of fundamental feelings. I can let go and play without doubt again. Because what I see on the page before me is exactly what I feel. Put it on, forget it’s there, and let the attire do it’s job….easy as that. Sorry about the novel, but somewhere someone is shaking their head in agreement.
    Thank you, ASHRO.

    I love your shoes but can never buy them because I wear size 5 1/2 but a girl can dream. I normally buy my clothes in petite sizes but you have one suit I’ve just got to have so I’m going to buy it in a 6 misses and if it is not to big or doesn’t cost to much I’ll get it altered and pray for the best.You have a hat on a model on page 23 wearing the verdi 3 pc skirt suit but I can’t find the hat anywhere.I’ve looked online as well I love that hat.Can you help me.

    I am on worship team, but not only that I just got a new position as my church deaconess at my church. I am 38, it was time for me to dress in a mature way. Your stylish clothes are amazing. God is an on time God he deserves my worship and praise. I praise the good lord for this day and all he does everyday.
