“No matter what you’re going through, you can get through it.” – Anita BlackstoneDress For Success is an international, not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting the economic independence of disadvantaged women. We at DFW Style Daily have worked closely with Dress For Success Dallas on several occasions over the years, and when the time came to launch a new video program, we decided to pay it forward. The resulting video series, Meaningful Makeovers, is a passion project months in the making. In partnership with Blaine’s Dallas Salon, Last Call Studio by Neiman Marcus, and our presenting sponsor, Amazing Lash Studio Dallas, the Meaningful Makeover journey features two local Dress For Success Dallas clients. In Part One below, we’ll meet Anita Blackstone, learn of her challenges and triumphs, and make her over in true DFW Style Daily fashion.
