“I think if you’re comfortable in your style, you’re going to shine no matter what.”
Bev Smith is a quiet power house. She’s smart, warm, impactful and oh-so-funny. I had the pleasure of meeting Bev in the 1990’s when I was a trainer at the Bel Air Athletic Club. In 2011, after running into Bev on the Ma & Pa trail, I told her about my fledging Personal Styling Business – The Wright Fit. Bev, already a member of The Chesapeake Professional Women’s Network, told me about the organization and it’s many benefits.
I joined CPWN later that week and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, thanks to Bev. CPWN has been instrumental in the growth of The Wright Fit, and I’ve met amazing mentors and lifelong friends through the organization, thanks to Bev. I think we have a recurring theme here. And did I mention Bev is now the President of CPWN? Well, she is. Pretty cool.
Bev has been in the Real Estate business for 14 years and works as a Realtor and “Listing Specialist” with Tessier Real Estate. She works hard and smart for her clients and they all appreciate her calm demeanor and sassy sense of humor. Because let’s face it, buying and/or selling a home is a huge and stressful life event!
Not long after I joined CPWN, Bev decided she wanted to “up” her professional style and hired me for a Personal Shopping trip. Admittedly, not a dress wearer, Bev saw the light that day and became somewhat of a dress convert. Over the years with a closet-edit and occasional, seasonal Personal Shopping trips, Bev has truly come into her AUTHENTIC STYLE. A style that exudes quiet confidence with nothing to prove.
These days you’ll find Bev stylin’ in her favorite distressed jeans, skinny white crops, bohemian inspired tops and casual summer dresses. She has a knack for looking polished in all of her personal uniforms. Bev has also decided (at least for now) to embrace her naturally wavy hair, cutting down on her “getting ready” time.
Authentic style, embracing the waves…The Bev has definitely learned to take the stress out of getting dressed while coming into her own.
