About two or three years ago, I started writing as a way to connect with women, to share my vulnerabilities and journey. As I was writing, some things happened in my life that shifted the kinds of stories I wanted to tell. As you’ll read in my book, Breaking The Glass Slipper, one of those events was meeting a terminally ill woman in Dallas at one of stores. She enlightened me to the idea of what fashion can do in our lives. Sometimes as women in society, we decide fashion is only for a select few. It can be frivolous, materialistic, or only for those with big bank accounts. When this beautiful woman told me what fashion did for her – in particular the fashion I was creating – it led me on this journey of thinking about all of the myths we’re told as women that we buy into, and how we Shouldn’t. This journey ultimately led to me connecting with other women about what we’re fed, and what we decide is true or untrue. I had this urge to communicate these ideas through my writing. From this, Breaking The Glass Slipper was born. It has been a labor of love and I’m so excited to share it with you.
I’m looking forward to the publication of this book on August 23 (Save the date – Available on Amazon!), and hope people enjoy it as much as I do. Watch the interview below to hear the full story about my inspiration to write the book.
