Hello and welcome to Fashion For Real Women!
My name's Diana Pemberton, and like many people, my interest in fashion began when I was a teen.
I started modeling in my home town of Colorado Springs, Colorado, when I was 15, and continued through college.
Here's how I looked in those days:
Nothing major - no Vogue, Elle, or Sports Illustrated (lol!) but I had fun.
I was too short (5'5") for runway work in New York or Paris, and my parents would never have allowed me to go that route anyway. Small town girls and big city pitfalls just don't mix, so I stayed home...and had a blast!
After college, I got married, moved to Texas, and got on the corporate track. I thought my fashion days were behind me.
In 1994, I took an image consulting course, started moonlighting for fun, and never looked back. I went full time a few years later.
But after having my first child, it became too much.
I tried to figure out how to balance motherhood and more one-on-one consultations requests than I could ever handle.
The answer? The Internet!
I started FashionForRealWomen.com in December 2000. Two decades and 500+ ezine issues later, I'm still going strong. My articles have been reprinted all over the web (Google me), and I've been interviewed by dozens of women's and industry magazines, including Prevention, Women's World, Weight Watchers, The American Bar Association, and Nurses World, and online by ContentBiz.com.
You can also find my "words of wisdom" in Priscilla Y. Huff's, The Self-Employed Woman's Guide to Launching a Home-Based Business and The FabJob Guide To Become a Fashion Designer.
In short, if you're looking to upgrade your image, I can help.
