Confidence and Your Closet with Pam Freidlander
Join us for a fascinating talk about our closets.  We talk confidence, style & the massive impact it has on the rest of of your life. You will learn 1. Getting dressed is all about feeling confident when looking in the Mirror and walking out the door. 2.What does it really mean to dress your age? 3 Polished and Put Together for your Personal and Professional life ______ Pam Friedlander Founder and President Positive Reflections Pam Friedlander was a successful businesswoman and entrepreneur before she founded Positive Reflections in 2006. For 30 years, she had careers in real estate and social services, working as a realtor with Merrill Lynch and William Raveis and managing Almost Family Adult Day Care in Danbury, CT. While she has always had a passion for helping people be the best they can be, her decision to establish Positive Reflections grew from a personal triumph. Friedlander struggled with weight for much of her life. Her closet was filled with small sizes she hoped to fit into again and large sizes she could not discard because she might need them. After eventually sustaining a sixty-pound weight loss, she realized she still dressed in the same style she wore when she was heavier. To reflect her achievement, she began to consciously shop for clothing that suited her personality and life style. She purged her closet of clothing that no longer pleased her. Friends and colleagues noticed the change and began asking for her help and guidance. Gradually, her circle widened and she founded Positive Reflections to help her clients learn to project a more positive image.   Today, Friedlander encourages her customers to develop their own personal style. She believes that anyone can look fabulous at any size, any age, any time. By learning to select clothing and accessories that suit personality, body type and lifestyle, one can create a new, beautiful vision of themselves. After an initial consultation, she provides wardrobe analysis and recommendations. Often, by redefining their closets, she shows client how to create new outfits from clothing they already own. Those who opt for personal shopping guidance learn that the experience can be stress free and enlightening.   In addition to in-home consulting services, she offers Fashion Therapy workshops, Girls Night Out seminars and Wardrobe and Personal Shopping packages. She is a regular speaker at corporate and retail workshops throughout Fairfield County.   Friedlander received a B.A. from the City University of New York’s College of Staten Island. She is a member of the Association of Image Consultants International, the Entrepreneurial Women’s Network, the Ridgefield Chamber of Commerce and the Working Women’s Forum of Newtown.
