Introducing Expressions of Workwear: a month-long extravaganza celebrating the unique ways in which women work. What we do, where we go, who we meet, and what we wear. We’ve teamed up with some of the brightest, boldest, boss-est women we know to take a peek into their wardrobes and reveal the pieces that honor their individual personalities, styles, and lives.
Meet Sonia. An Emmy award-winning TV host and founder of LUSHPOP Productions, Sonia has dedicated her career—in front of and behind the camera—to positivity and authenticity.
A BOSS—ON BOTH SIDES OF THE CAMERA
I’m an Emmy award-winning TV host. I host a nationally syndicated entertainment show called Celebrity Page TV, and I’m also the co-founder of a production company called LUSHPOP Productions. We produce ad campaigns for global fashion, lifestyle and beauty brands.
I’m probably working more now than I’ve ever worked in my entire life, yet it feels like play every single day. I think that’s the key to life and that’s the key to work and a career so that it doesn’t feel like work.
A DAY IN SONIA’S SHOES
I don’t have a typical day-to-day or week-to-week, which is what I love about what I do right now. One day I might be shooting episodes of my show, the next day I could still be in pajamas taking conference calls, the next day I could be on a really long production shoot rolling up my sleeves, getting my hands dirty, or I could be going to a production meeting. Every single day is different and that’s what I love. It keeps it interesting.
DIFFERENT DRESSES FOR DIFFERENT HATS
Because I wear so many different hats, style for has to be really versatile. For the show that I host I can be a little more fun and flirty and sexy and take fashion risks. When I have a meeting for my production company, it’s definitely going to be more traditional and conservative. So, I really have to vary in terms of wardrobe and have a lot of items ready to go for anything at any moment
SONIA’S SECRET TO SUCCESS
It doesn’t necessarily have to do with exactly what I’m doing...it’s more about what I represent, and I think what I represent is living an authentic life, living true to you. That’s the example that I want to set for other people. I think the reason I have been successful at all is because I’ve really aligned my life according to what makes me happy, as opposed to what looks good on paper. And I think the recipe for success is really aligning to your true and highest self. And when you do that, the sky’s the limit.
