When asked about creating WOE Magazine, Ayo Thomas CEO/Editor in Chief state’s “God gave me a vision to launch women’s group entitled (Women of Excellence Fellowship). I created a small intimate environment for women to share their heart, receive tools and strategies to walk in wholeness and discover their purpose. WOE grew from my living room, to a friend’s basement, community centers, libraries and hotels in the course of 10 years. I had a desire to reach women in a larger capacity by providing empowerment tools and strategies to increase their quality of living. I believe when a woman discovers her true authentic self, she becomes empowered to change her circumstances, life and destiny. In 2015, I decided to pursue my lifelong dream of designing a magazine and here I am today launch WOE Magazine!”

Macys Westfield Annapolis: Personal Style Session and Photos

Macys has always been one of my favorite retailers.  For me, it’s more than just the mere act of shopping but I lean towards the overall experience.  I like the store layout, they carry my favorite brands, and the prices are affordable (and the coupons) are amazing!

One hidden secret that many shoppers may not know is that Macys has an in-store styling consultant.  This is a wonderful service at specific stores (nationwide) that can benefit any busy mom, professional, or lady on the go!

My on-site store was located in Annapolis, Maryland where Teresa Borradaile assisted me in selecting a few items. The process began with a simple phone call; Teresa asked me a series of questions about my size, personal style, and favorite colors.  From there, I arrived at her office where she pulled together several looks and accessories. Some of the brands included Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, INC International Concepts, and Vince Camuto.

I was pleasantly surprised because we only had a 10 minute conversation and Teresa narrowed down my personal style with about ten looks!  She also explained the process of scheduling time with her consulting service which is Monday – Friday during the store hours. Clients can enjoy refreshments, try on garments, and purchase items in her office.  Another fabulous tip, she also assists with wedding registry from selecting gowns and tuxedos to bridal party gifts.


Overall, this was an amazing experience and I truly encourage everyone to schedule time with a Macys Personal Stylist.  Last note, if you’re like me and can’t make a final decision about a product, your personal shopper can hold items and allow you time to make a purchase.  Visit www.macys.com and schedule time to enjoy this VIP Service at Macys Westfield Annapolis.
