Pell City Municipal Complex

The Pell City Municipal Complex is home to the Pell City Public Library.

PELL CITY -- If you want to look your best for the holidays, you might want to attend the “Bedazzled” workshop next Wednesday at noon at the Pell City Public Library, according to a press release.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun and very informative,” said Susan Mann, library assistant director, who oversees the Adult Reading Program, in the release. “Who doesn’t want to look their best this holiday season?”

The workshop will be free and promises to provide helpful fashion hints that will get anyone on the right track to looking their very best, whether they are at the school Christmas play or “out on the town” for holiday festivities.

BeBe Benjamin and her daughter, Loris Hutchison, will present the workshop. They are founders of Nappy Model Inc., a mobile job readiness training service that provides fun fashion workshops for high schools, colleges and women’s shelters across several counties in Alabama. Their mission is to empower women and teens to build better futures.  

This mother/daughter team knows what’s savvy, and the two are experts at combining classic and trendy looks to create unique and fashionable outcomes.  

This team, through its “Occasionally Dressed” job readiness workshops, counsels and instructs not only on what to wear to job interviews to leave a positive impression, but also takes it a step further, discussing the “call back,” and even navigating proper HR dress codes once that coveted job is secured.  

Using mannequins dressed in appropriate business attire, for clarification, the team has created fun and informative sessions that are beneficial … and making a difference, wherever it goes.

Benjamin is a graduate of Jacksonville State University, with a Bachelor of Science in biology. She also holds a Wealth Specialist designation from Kaplan University.  

Loris Hutchinson is a graduate of the University of Montevallo with a Bachelor of Science in speech pathology (and a double minor in deaf studies and psychology) and a Master of Education in collaborative education.

The event is part of a new and exciting series of workshops at the Pell City Public Library.
