Ivanka Trump: The Defunct Fashion Brand and The Politician
[Upfront, I am telling you I am not a politician. I do not assign myself to any political party
nor do I get involved in political debates. Please refrain from political discourse here.]
I personally have a few Ivanka Trump clothing brand items in my closet. I actually bought them before Donald Trump was a politician and before Ivanka Trump worked in the White House. Her fashion brand has great items for working women, especially her women's workwear dresses. You can imagine what I thought when her family became politicians and I'm sitting here wondering if I will no longer be able to wear her clothing anymore. I put the pieces aside and no longer wore them.
Until news came that Ivanka Trump, the fashion brand, will be shutting its doors! This is when I actually thought to myself what a joke! Why did I let people's thoughts and opinions affect my choice of clothing and what I wanted to wear? I had no desire to go out and buy new Ivanka Trump clothing. However, It's MY money and I already sunk MY money into the dress, so why not wear the dress?
The problem with thoughts and opinions is that people pick and choose who they apply those same thoughts and opinions to! If we did some in-depth research and analyses that I do not care to do because I'm a busy career woman, we would find that these same people who would tell you not to wear her brand anymore are at the same time supporting brands who do highly unethical things! They are wearing brands that steal, kill, and destroy in order to be successful. In fact, they are wearing brands of designers that are FRIENDS with Ivanka Trump. I hate to break it to you all - all your Hollywood favorites are all friends and they all go to the same functions and parties and are friends behind closed doors.
Open your mind and understand that what you see in the media is not what it's 'POST to be.
I liberate you and I give you permission to wear what makes you look and feel confident at work!
