Fashion for the Rest of Us has been speaking out for "real women's self-esteem" since 2010 via dozens of speaking appearances by Mary Duffy across the women's career and fashion circuit in New York City. Among her many events, Mary has been a favorite at The Junior League of the City of New York, speaking about everything from 60+ fashion to the art of online shopping to how best to accessorize contemporary fashion. Her talks at The Women's National Clubs cross fashion boundaries as well as political ones, as Mary transcends demographics to share her in-demand fashion and beauty sense with women just entering the job market to those at the helm of companies large and small.
