As a career woman having spent 30 years in the corporate world, I have been aware of the issue’s facing women in the workplace. We still have such a long way to go to achieve equal rights. Every step in the right direction is a good step. A small step I hope to help women with is leveling the playing field in the area of “Pockets”. That’s right – Men have pockets and women so often don’t. Now that cell phones have become such an important part of our lives, it’s time we had a place to carry them. It may seem like a simple thing, but it is one that affects almost all women.
VOCKETS – women now have wearable pockets no matter what outfit she is wearing. Whether its a dress, skirt, dress slacks, leggings, skinny jeans or pocketless jackets – we now have a pocket we can layer on!!
- No more missed calls. In business meetings, my phone was appropriately on silent in my briefcase or at my desk. At other times I’d be juggling it with my laptop, binder, pens, etc. On occasion, while waiting for an appointment with a buyer they would leave a message that they were running late – but unfortunately, I never received the call, because my cell phone wasn’t right with me. With the Vest Vocket I don’t have these issues any more.
- Tradeshows – women are always misplacing their phones, or juggling them while trying to demonstrate a new product. I tried a Lanyard phone case once but it was too heavy and uncomfortable on my neck. Now with Vockets I have a lot of comfortable options.
- A comfortable way to carry you phone. I set out to create a comfortable way for a woman to carry her cell phone discreetly under a jacket or cardigan. I developed this lightweight, slimline layering piece that you put on in the morning over a cami or blouse but under a cardigan or jacket.
- Discreet – the entire line of Vockets has been designed to be discreet. The pockets can be worn is places so that your cell phone remains hidden in presentations and meetings. The Vest Vocket for example hangs comfortably over your shoulders and two ultra thin zippered pockets hang down on either side. The pockets fit nicely into that little curve at your sides just above your waist, but under your cardigan or jacket.
- Staying connected to family and friends is so easy now, you’ll never miss an important call again. Think of the time you’ll save when you never have to go searching for your phone.
- Keeping you safe – it can be dangerous when women are traveling to business meetings alone. Often in strange cities and unknown surroundings. With Vockets your cell phone is always with you, it keeps your phone safe but more importantly you are safer too!
