Hey there Untucked followers,
I am proud to be Untucked Workwear's first ambassador!
One of my favorite sports (yes I consider it a sport) is to hunt down innovative sustainable companies that will make my life easier and help me feel like the best version of myself. That's how I discovered Untucked Workwear. Clothes that I can wear to business meetings, after work drinks, and dinner with my friends. Clothes that I know respect people and the environment.
I work for an IT start up in New York City, and spend my time running from one meeting to another and often end my day in a nice bar or restaurant. Talking to Colleen, I realized that she's designing the kind of clothes that I need. We shared our similar challenges of clothing that looked nice, but was not durable enough to get us through the day.
In fact, just the other week, I was wearing a white silk shirt that I ironed in the morning before going to work. Feeling like a champion, I put on my trench, left for work, jumped in the metro, and arrived at the office looking like I crumpled my shirt on purpose! Too bad, I still had a long day ahead of me and my confidence was zapped because I felt as if everyone was sending disapproving looks at my shirt. I probably will not wear that shirt again, and although it looked beautiful in the shop, it just wasn't realistic for my active day to day in the city.
This is just one of the many reasons why I'm so excited to see Untucked Workwear's launch! I want to feel good ALL day, whether or not I spend 30 minutes stuck in the subway.
