Project Description

WHO WE ARE

Ready dress go (RDG) is revolutionizing the way in which young women dress to enter the professional world. Our business wear brand was designed so our customers don't need to make sacrifices. Women wearing ready dress go can be fashionable and empowered, all with the ease of shopping from one place. At ready dress go, we design and sell professional attire that is comfortable, high quality, and stylish for aspiring business women.

We also carry out our mission to support our customers by fostering a dynamic community of like-minded women by way of the ready dress go ‘Boardroom’: a network and content platform for female professionals who are navigating their careers. Through our products and brand, we inspire women as they get dressed to enter the business world.

WORK-FROM-HOME SET

Together is better, especially when shopping our top and blazer. Both of the pieces in the set are wrinkle free and machine washable. Simply throw them in the wash after a long day of work and let them hang dry - it’s as easy as that. No need to spend the extra cash or time for any sort of special care. We would so much rather you treat yourself to an extra latte instead of weekly dry cleaning! To purchase yours, click the 'Fund It' button at the top of the page!

JOIN THE BOARDROOM

When you Join the Boardroom, you receive an RDG newsletter, exclusive promotions, and access to a digital resource hub and an inclusive community of like-minded women entering the workplace. Our brand is so much more than simply the clothing we provide. We are the first step in your professional journey, and there is so much more in store for you along the way. If you are looking for advice, support, inspiration and community as you navigate the business world, the RDG Boardroom is for you! After making a purchase or donating to The Blazer Fund, you are granted access to the Boardroom.

 

OUR STORY

During our first semester as freshmen at Vanderbilt, we were both interested in careers in business. After the long process of applying and interviewing, we were so happy to be accepted into a professional organization on campus; it would expose us to opportunities within the business world including networking events, coffee chats, and other professional programming. Of course, we had to dress in business attire for a good number of these events. However, we personally experienced difficulty trying to find professional clothes to wear that were comfortable, accessible, and fashionable -- and we knew we couldn't be the only ones. It was through this realization that ready dress go was born.

WHY IFundWomen

We know that the IFundWomen platform we are selling on doesn't look like online shopping typically does. So, we thought it would be helpful to give a quick explanation of this partnership! IFundWomen's mission is to support female founders while raising capital. Using IFundWomen as our selling platform allows us to do pre-sales and support women entrepreneurs at the same time: the perfect combo! Through your purchase of RDG products on the IFundWomen platform, you also are helping female entrepreneurs to receive coaching and support for their businesses. We feel so lucky to have a crowdfunding partner that aligns strongly with our company's mission. 

 

The Blazer Fund 

Accessible professional attire is not a reality for most women. That is why we created The Blazer Fund. Twice a year, ready dress go will use this fund to donate outfits to women who cannot afford to purchase their own professional attire.

Through your generous contributions, The Blazer Fund will empower even more women to succeed.

The Campaign FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

When will I receive my merchandise?

You are guaranteed to receive your work-from-home set by May 1, just in time for summer internships! We will be working extra hard to get your apparel to you before then, so keep your eyes open for e-mail updates on your pre-order in the coming weeks!

How should I decide which size to order in the top and blazer?

Our sizing runs true to size for our top, and slightly big for our blazer. If you are between sizes for the blazer, size down. Reference our size guide here!

What is the ready dress go Boardroom?

When you Join the Boardroom, you receive an RDG newsletter, exclusive promotions, and access to a digital resource hub and an inclusive community of like-minded women entering the workplace. After making a purchase or donating to The Blazer Fund, you are granted access to the Boardroom! We can't wait to see you there. 

I was hoping to purchase a whole set! Where are the matching pants? 

Don't stress - pants are coming to your closet soon! Due to Covid-19, most women are working from the comfort of their homes and are only seen from the top up! So, we put our pants on hold for the time being. Pants, additional colors in our top, dresses, and skirts are coming soon! 

I am not looking for women's professional attire, but I would like to support ready dress go. How can I do so?

We know not all of you, especially our amazing male allies, are looking to purchase women’s professional attire. That said, you can still support our mission by contributing to The Blazer Fund. Accessible professional attire is not a reality for most women. That is why we created The Blazer Fund. Twice a year, ready dress go will donate as many outfits as the fund can sponsor for women who cannot afford to purchase their own professional attire. The Blazer Fund will empower even more women to succeed, through your generous contributions.

Blazer

Our blazer is a power piece that is both comfortable and functional, made just for you. The ultra stretch fabric that is used makes this blazer perfect for a business meeting or can be thrown over a silk top with jeans for a night downtown. There is none of that bulky padding that makes blazers itchy and stuffy, because who would want that? Our favorite part: the pockets! They are wide enough to hold an iphone, lip gloss, pens, and any other workplace essentials that you don’t have the hands to hold. 

The Blazer is available in the following sizes:

XS, S, M, L, XL

Reference our size guide in the FAQ section to ensure a perfect fit!

Top

The top in the work from home set was designed in a color we know you will love. This neutral grey is perfect for a casual day in the office or for lunch with colleagues at your favorite local spots. A high cut v neck flatters all body types, chest sizes, and personal styles. The best feature? A sleeveless design that shows no sign of a bra or bra strap.
