Besides her obvious great personal style what I loved about Candace was her story, her obsession with fashion is deeply rooted. Mama Belle (candace mom) was a seamtress and dressed Candace and her sister in frilly dresses like 2 sweet American Girl Dolls. My mom also had a mean sew game and made all her dresses when she was younger, unfortunately I never got the chance to wear any of her designs. When fashion past times are past down thru generations it gives a gal more personal style than a stylist ever could. No shade to my fellow stylist but real personal style, well is personal.
” I want to evolve by taking risks and stepping out of my comfort zone.”
“My love for fashion stretches all spectrums of a closet(s) budget” said Candace. We love that! Having the ability to make $3 look like $300 is a strong point for any fashion gal. But Candace, isn’t just a fashion girl, she’s a Style Climber, and most importantly is our Style Hero!
