Street Boutique – Giving Back To The Community

As Albert Einstein said, ‘The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving’. Volunteering and lending a hand in a charitable campaign has long been considered a commendable practice, and allows people to help those, who are in need of aid and finance. A person who has been providing such services for a long time now is Grace Amazin.

Grace Amazin is an enthusiastic and female entrepreneur and philanthropist, who has been working as a business model for quite some time now. Alongside her entrepreneurial journey, Grace has been extensively involved in activities, which aims towards giving back to the community. From the age of 26 when she opened her first business, Grace has been working hard and the rewards of her commitment to give back to the community are some of the platforms such as Grace Period 501(c)(3) and a fashion truck called Shop Arzo.

According to Antonia Fraser, ‘We are privileged – there are poor people out there. We must do something to make them privileged’. Following such principles in life Grace Amazin started Grace Period, which is a non-profit organization and helps in holding fundraisers, school supplies & toy donations, and providing under-served children, with the right type of knowledge to make a brighter future, globally. The organization provides life-coaching skills, entrepreneurship workshops, mentoring and guidance, in order to provide children with the encouragement they need to prosper in life. The aim of the organization is to help the unprivileged youth of the world, and lead them towards a better and more successful path.

Shop Arzo is an online boutique & fashion truck, which serves as a platform to provide women & men with clothes & accessories, which are a blend of the latest fashion, and the chic trends being worn in the fashion industry. The platform basically began as a brick and mortar, clothing boutique on U ST NW Washington, DC. Seeing the expanding need and demand of online shopping and mobility, it was recently turned into a fashion truck, for the convenience of women & men. With its sister company i.e. Grace Period, the two are looking forward to holding a day of fashion & style shopping for those in need, with the Street Boutique.

What is Street Boutique?
Street Boutique is exactly as it sounds, a street boutique. The street boutique is an open clothing & shoes boutique on the street corner of 10th & U ST NW Corridor in Washington, DC. The campaign encourages people to drop by and contribute through giving up their used and un-used clothes and shoes, so the needy can shop at their own choice, for free.

The campaign is lead by Grace Amazin herself and is a product of a blend of two of her brands– Arzo and Grace Period. So, for people who are privileged to have clothing & shoes that they no longer love and are living in Washington DC & the DMV area make it to Street Boutique this month & add your contributions. Give back to the community for a great cause!

The US economy grew faster than previously thought in the second quarter of the year, according to new figures that have fanned expectations that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates before the end of 2015.

Government data suggested the world’s biggest economy grew at an annual pace of 3.9% between April and June, exceeding economists’ expectations for the US GDP estimate to stay unchanged at 3.7%. It marked an even stronger bounceback from the sluggish 0.6% growth recorded in the opening months of 2015 when an especially harsh winter hit economic activity.

The dollar strengthened against other currencies and US stock markets rallied after the upward revision to GDP, which the Commerce Department said was largely driven by consumer spending being stronger than previously thought.

Economists said the figures left the door open for the US central bank to raise interest rates from their current record low of close to zero at policy meetings in October or December.

“Yellen has confirmed a hike can still occur in 2015, so speculation over a December move is currently rife in the market – with short-term dollar bulls hoping for an October move,” said Alex Lydall, senior trader at foreign exchange business Foenix Partners.

“With the exception of inflation, economic indicators are still solid for the domestic economy in the US, so the pertinent question remains: will the Fed risk looking irresponsible and delay rate hikes into 2016, or will they take the plunge this year, with perhaps a more cautious hike than the expected 0.25%? The jury is still out.”

The Federal Reserve held off raising borrowing costs at its policy meeting last week as it cited volatility in the global economy. But Yellen indicated in a speech on Thursday this week that there was a still a good chance the first hike for almost a decade could come before the year is out. She said US economic prospects “generally appear solid” and it was best not to wait too long to tighten policy, which has been ultra-loose since the global financial crisis.

However, some experts noted that GDP figures did not give the most up-to-date picture of the economy’s performance and that more timely economic indicators painted a gloomier picture.

The revision had “little bearing on US policy”, said Chris Williamson, chief economist at economic data company Markit, which tracks business activity in the US and other economies.

“It does little to change the story that the economy rebounded strongly in the spring after the weak patch seen earlier in the year. More important are the forward-looking indicators, which include a number of red flag warnings that growth is slowing amid headwinds of the strong dollar, slumping oil prices, financial market volatility and emerging market jitters,” he added.

“The more up-to-date survey data play into the hands of dovish policymakers and will reduce the odds of interest rates rising any time soon.”
