There’s an art to packing for a trip. The threat of not having the right outfit to wear for an excursion causes many to burden themselves with overstuffed bags. Yet over-simplifying can leave you panicked when invited to an unexpected event. Packing shoes can be even harder, as they take up so much room. Here’s a few tips to help you pick just the right pairs of shoes so you’re ready for anything.
It’s that time of year, when we sort through our closets and help shed those pieces that either don’t fit, or you just never wear. Well, here’s a great solution: donate those items to Dress for Success!
It’s that strange time of year for closets. During these times, clothing and footwear staples can help bridge the gap between warm and cool weather outfits. We asked our stylist to show how a new tasseled moccasin loafer, Hope, can be worn in any temperature.
Del Cardenas has lived in Del Rio, TX her whole life. A mother of six children and grandmother to more, Del says life hasn’t always been easy. That doesn’t keep her from a perfect attendance record as a San Antonio Shoemakers employee for over 30 years!
Del says she had to make her own clothes in the earlier days and even made clothes to sell for extra money. Things started looking up for Del after working a few years at SAS. She was able to buy a truck for her son when he left for college and care for all her other kids. Now Del says she’s able to buy nice clothes for herself and eat out at restaurants; things a hard working mother sacrifices.
Del has noticed she’s a rarity in the workplace. “They don’t stay in a job like I do. They change a lot. That’s how kids are.” Del says she doesn’t want kids like her granddaughter to suffer like she did. She passes on some wisdom. “Everywhere you go the work is hard.”
Still a hard worker at age 81, Del is often told to take it easy. “They tell me, ‘take your time.’ I cannot take my time,” Del explains, “I’m used to the work.” She says some have teased her in the past about retiring, but she’s going to do what she thinks is best, and right now that’s to keep working at the SAS factory in Del Rio. At least, that’s the plan for today, “I think maybe I should be sitting down at home. But I keep up. She (Del's supervisor) can tell you."
Del's hard work and perfect attendance record, along with other employees, will be recognized and celebrated at the Service Awards lunch in December.
This fall, the must-have footwear essentials are branching beyond the basics and towards the colorful and the comfortable. In the September/ October edition of Footwear Insights, this is explained, and SAS shoes are shown off as examples.
