Claire Sulmers is the kindest, humble, patient and down to earth person, you could ever meet. The highly successful blogger, stylist and entrepreneur who rose to fame with her critically acclaimed blog Fashion Bomb Daily graced our presence over the weekend at MODChic Boutique in the Rice Village area of Houston. Fashion Bomb Daily is a multicultural magazine that gives us the scoop on the latest trends in fashion from what the celebrities are wearing to shining a light on local styles known as Fashion Bombshell of The Day.
Denise Hamilton with Claire Sulmers
The setting of the room was very intimate with a sit-down Q&A format and with several fashionable entrepreneurs who held to Claire’s every word. Denise Hamilton Founder and CEO of WatchHerWork moderated the conversation. Claire spoke of graduating from Harvard University, living in Paris, getting blackballed in the industry at one point and bootstrapping her way to the top. “Most people see the glamour,” said Claire, but they don’t know that I worked for pennies for several years before my blog took off. Each woman was asked to introduce themselves and to state their current career field and what they aspired to do. The careers of the women were impressive from engineers to nurse practitioners and even lawyers. One thing each of the young ladies had in common was the passion for pursuing a career in the fashion industry whether it be a blogger, stylist, or fashion designer; each thinking how they could become #girlbosses like Ms Sulmers herself.

Overall the night was full of laughter, networking, and empowerment. Claire signed copies of her newly published book “The Bomb Life: My Brand My Terms“. The women in the room purchased a book, had a sit down with Claire and a photo-op including myself.
