Hello Top Buttons family! I am so excited to be here today! My name is Ahndea May, I am a daughter of the King, raising 5 little ones with my high school sweetheart and best friend Nate in Atlanta, GA. I love when God brings opportunities for me to align myself with mission and purpose. A way to give back and help others. I first met Sarah Powers, founder of Top Buttons, in Rockford, IL. She is energetic, connective, and man does she light up a room with her smile! We have stayed in touch over the years and followed each other through social media. I love the heart behind Top Buttons online magazine: "express more, reveal less," a modest twist on fashion and much more.
As a stylist, my heart is to help tell a story, your story through wardrobe, fashion and creative elements. Style is simply the outward way to express your inner self. When I was young, I remember laying out my clothes the night before and being so excited to show off my new United Colors of Benetton outfit. My clothes and appearance became what I focused on until God really got a hold of my heart and helped the searching for others approval fade. I then knew who I was in Christ and my appearance became a reflection of me not an image of me. Now my business is to help educate, inspire and curate style through many different avenues.
I am thrilled to be a style contributor for Top Buttons Magazine as well as a sponsor for the upcoming Wardrobe Makeover Event this September. Here is what Sarah had to say about this fantastic initiative.
“At Top Buttons, we recognize many young women who might want to dress in more proper fitting attire often don’t have the money to go out and buy clothes as needed. Through our “Fall Wardrobe Makeover Event for Teenage Girls in Need” we are working to offer these young ladies with styling tips from our Top Buttons personal stylists and provide them with gently used clothing to replace or enhance their current wardrobe” — Sarah Powers. Founder & Director
My role is to help curate style boards, catering to many different vibes from street style to Boheme. This will help the Top Buttons hands-on stylists utilize the donations in the most effective way. We want each girl to feel like they are receiving a custom experience. We want them feel special, and also walk away with some quick tips, clothes and a full heart.
