In Her Shoes: #MOMBOSS

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino attended Bloomingdale’s Short Hills’ In Her Shoes: #MOMBOSS event and spoke to some of the Garden State’s power moms.

“It was energizing to be here,” Priya Virmani, CEO of Privée by Priya, stated. “I loved being surrounded by all of these inspiring women and hearing their stories.”

“There were such good questions that were asked,” Mallika Malhotra, CEO of MikiFoto + Co, recalls. “People were feeling inspired, really connected, and also shared their stories.”

Cheldin Barlatt Rumer, CEO of This is It TV, raved about the event. She says that ten years ago, this event would not have even existed. “To be able to talk about the entrepreneurial spirit within mothers, it was just wonderful.”

What did Danielle Forte, CEO of 828 Clothing, take away from the panel? “Learning balance, and giving yourself some grace,” she says. “Live your dream and have fun.”

Latino also spoke with Co-Sponsor of “In Her Shoes,” Dina El Nabli. “No matter where you are in your parenting journey,” she stated, “we share the same struggles, and we are so inspired by the tips today.”

Chris Reilly on New Flight Digital Media

Chris Reilly, founder of New Flight Digital Media, joined Lisa Marie Latino in the #HipNJ studio to discuss his entrepreneurial venture.

Reilly is currently studying Animation at Fairleigh Dickinson University, which he is using to his advantage at New Flight. “A lot of what we do has to do with bringing products in and having their best view show through,” Reilly states. “We are trying to have our animation efforts accent the products.”

New Flight is working with local business, including the Archdiocese of Newark, to help pizazz their brands. “I have always had this passion for visual effects and 3-D animation,” he states. “A lot of the local communities have companies that don’t have such a great handle on product images.” So, he hopes to bring out the beauty of such products through images and video.

SuitableYou.com co-founder Gillian Brown joined Maria Falzo in the #HipNJ studio to discuss her women’s work-wear personal style box service.

“I started SuitableYou because I found that it was really hard to find stylish and affordable work-wear,” says Brown, a resident of Hoboken. She noticed that many of her friends were encountering the same issue after graduating college, so she figured a lot of other women must also have this problem. “I wanted to really start something that would empower women in the workplace.”

SuitableYou asks you to take a questionnaire so they could learn about you. They use this information to personally select items that match your style and body type. After you complete this questionnaire, they pull together five pieces that meet your style, fit, career, and budget. Then, you will get your box! You have the option to keep only what you love and return the rest for free.

“You will also get a stylist guide,” Brown states. This is a note from your stylist telling you how to wear the five pieces in your box. “We’re all about building wardrobes, not just sending individual pieces.”

Falzo and Brown check out some fashionable and work-friendly looks in the video above. Be sure to check it out, and sign up to get your own box here.
