In the past, I found that celebrating International Women’s Day was supposed to be about cheering proud and loud about the accomplishments of brave and confident women. But to my surprise, I had a very different experience this year. It didn’t include attending an event or listening to a speaker, hosting a party or participating in a celebration. Rather, it came from the comfort of my chair in my own living room.
At Klas squared, our mission is to make women feel their very best for work, day and play. I thought it a natural step to communicate directly with these women in the spirit of International Women’s Day. It was an opportunity to reach out to all the amazing women including clients, colleagues, and friends that have helped and inspired us along the way.
While sitting at my desk in front of a huge pile of personally addressed envelopes and partially written notes, all of a sudden I felt a tightening in my chest and water in my eyes. I was overwhelmed by the special connections I had made over the years and the number of people who continued to support us and cheer us on. I had never felt gratitude like that.
When it comes to your tribe, we encourage you to continue to take the time to acknowledge the women around you; to thank them for encouraging you to stand up and to be strong. It doesn’t mean you have to make a speech, or lead a rally, but by lifting up those around us, we’ll continue to build strength to stand for what is right in our communities and beyond. Because when we use our voice (written or spoken) to share our truth we are united. We are stronger. We are powerful.
We are on the verge of something even more exciting and inspiring at Klas squared as we continue to grow. As a result, the Spring Collection is infused with a sense of fresh starts and new beginnings while rooted in the classic lines and textures you’ve come to know and love of our jewelry. Our latest adventure has us traveling to New York City where we’ll be sharing a sneak peek at the Spring Collection live on Facebook and Instagram (March 19th @ 6pm – be sure to join us!). You can shop our Spring Collection March 20th and we can’t wait to share it with you!!
