Our trained volunteer stylists will help you put together appropriate outfits for an interview or for other employment needs. Dressing appropriately for your job interview or first few weeks at a new job can give you the confidence you need to succeed.
When you arrive at Wings, you will be greeted by your volunteer stylist who will talk with you about your clothing needs, style and sizes to help design an appropriate look just for you. The Wings clothing closet is stocked with clothing in all styles and sizes.
In your personal dressing room, your stylist will bring you clothing to try on and work with you until you have the clothing you need to succeed. Once your clothing has been selected, your stylist will help you with other needs such as shoes, a handbag and accessories, as well as new undergarments.
You will leave Wings feeling like a new woman, full of confidence and pride, ready for success!
“I was surprised there was a place like that for people. I guess I expected it to look like Goodwill with clothes piled up. When I walked in, I was so amazed. I was treated like a queen. I thought I was shopping at Lord & Taylor! How a person looks on the outside has a lot to do with how they feel on the inside.” – Janet, Wings Client
