More and more, millennial women are finding their own solution to the gender pay gap and that is to run their own business. If traditional jobs won't pay us what we're worth, we'll do it ourselves. In an age where “54% of the nation’s Millennials either want to start a business or already have started one,” according to Carl Schramm, president and CEO of the Kauffman Foundation, women are transitioning to Boss Lady status in large amounts.
We admire women like Melody Ehsani and Sophia Amoruso who are running thangs on their own terms and gettin' da most (not da lesser) as Pimp C so eloquently said. No, we're not "top notch hoes" but instead "top notch ArithmaChics" that are breaking through the gender pay gap in style. If you're taking those steps and making those sacrifices so that you can one day work for yourself, we tip our hats to you and hope that you don't give up. Let's make 2014 that year that you GDM!
We discovered Collections + Volumes and the mastermind behind it via Instagram. We instantly identified Miami blogger D'ana as an ArithmaChic, even if she didn't know it yet...
C+V is a fashion/lifestyle blog where you can find outfit ideas, poetry and honest accounts of the life of a creative. We dig D'ana's style; it oozes with creativity while looking effortless. On top of that, you can get a feel for her personality all throughout her blog and her IG (our "Kindness ≠ Weakness" t-shirt is just one of the pieces that felt perfect for D'ana). This girl is doing her thing and inspiring others to do the same and that's something we dig here at ArithmaChic.
A special shout out to D'ana and her photographer, Leenie, for this shoot featuring our "Assets crop top". Check out more images from the shoot below.
