I'm always in awe of women who go beyond the ordinary...those that step outside the box a bit and do what most folks would find too overwhelming to even attempt. Since March is Women's History Month, we thought we'd feature a few ladies who've tipped the scales and done some pretty remarkable things in our book. We've gone way back for our first woman of history.
Introducing....Mary Dixon Kies, the first woman in the United States to receive a patent. She invented a method for weaving hats with silk and stray...thus the stunning, head-turning hats we crown today. Back then (1809), women were obedient and submissive to their husbands and didn't dare make strides on their own. Imagine that!
In any case, we celebrate the beginning of fashion as we know it today, for beautiful brims of all shapes and sizes. Thanks Mary!
I have to admit, that I've come to love this woman on TV. Initially, I thought she was a bit over the top...too much power...too much fushi-fushi stuff. But just one episode from last season, totally changed my opinion about Ms. Kimora Lee Simmons Hounsou. During an interview she did with a reporter, she revealed that her heart isn't made of steal. She's nervous when she presents her creations to a potential buyer. But if she doesn't think of herself as fabulous, no one else will either. I LOVED IT! And I was hooked from that moment.
A true mogul that knows what she wants, empowers the people around her to make things happen, and always manages to show direction and love to her children. Her show reminds me that even as a single mom, I CAN be fabulous and spend quality, motherly time with my family; I CAN reach my career goals, I CAN provide a platform for others to learn, grow and be fabulous too!
She actually exudes exactly what we embrace at Neero & Ana. Beauty, Brains & Balls (Brass).
You go girl!
