On March 10, 2011, the Women in Leadership Foundation held an event, Sweet Talk, at the offices of Cossette ad agency downtown Toronto. The Women in Leadership Foundation is a networking focused organization that brings women together with the purpose of matching its young, career driven members with professional mentors. Sweet Talk was a sold-out success and The Peacock Parade had the pleasure of being one of the sponsors of the event.

The theme of the evening was “Dressing for Success” with Theresa Quick of the Style Department providing styling consultations for guests as well as holding a presentation on appropriate office wear and work-wardrobe must haves.  The must have list came down to the following – so get ready to shop:

  1. The black suit
  2. The pencil skirt
  3. The bold blouse
  4. The statement necklace
  5. The perfect cardigan
  6. The leather belt
  7. The comfortable 3” pump
  8. The patterned tights

Accompanying The Peacock Parade in sponsorships were some other fantastic vendors helping women to look their best by prepping themselves and their closets for the work place. Blo Bar was present offering tips and demonstrations to guests for easy ways to update your ‘do. Make-up artist Kavita Suri was touching up faces for office appropriate looks, and photographer Shannon Nicole was shooting head shots – perfect to use for your LinkedIn profile.

The last thing to finish off the perfect office look is the perfect outfit, which is where The Peacock Parade comes in. The website will be launching soon so register now at for a $15 credit towards your first purchase!
