Abby’s Swag|Open for Business!!

Storytime

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Stephanae. From the moment she laid eyes on the ruby slippers in the Wizard of Oz she was in love. Enchanted by shoe’s magical spell this set her on a journey to her personal style.

Description is in the body of the post.
Abby

As with most heroines, Stephanae reached the point where she was “living the dream.” Her three boys were now men, she earned a promotion at work, bought her first home, and owned her dream vehicle. Then one day her life was turned on its head—she lost her eyesight!

Life was over… or so she thought.

After an adjustment period, our heroine continued with her career, found ways to maintain her fashion sense, and became a better advocate. Due to a lack of general awareness about blindness and the capabilities of blind people, Stephanae tapped into her alter-ego–Abby. Abby has sight loss, uses a white cane yet she is confident and fabulously chic.

“Blindness is not always obvious. For us to transcend barriers we must change the way we perceive one another. ” 

Abby

The End??

Nah, It’s Only The Beginning

The past few weeks have been pretty intensive updating Bold Blind Beauty’s Abby’s Swag. Learning along the way has been equally exciting, frustrating, and fulfilling. 

Since empowerment is especially important for blind and visually impaired women, Abby’s Swag is a positive, pretty, and powerful voice. Abby projects a sense of humor to communicate an important message that inspires awareness.

Have a fabulous day! ~Steph

  3. We always have choices in life. We can “wollow” in self pity or recognize the value in human life and pursue a path that brings purpose and passion to our lives. It is clear which path you have chosen.

  14. I can’t wait. I plan to buy a mug for my great aunt. She lives with macular degeneration.

    1. Thank you Kathy!! How is your aunt coping if you don’t mind my asking? The reason I’m asking is that I’ve spoken with a few people who are going through some form of sight loss and they aren’t aware of all the help that is available for them.

      1. She’s nearing 95. If I had to judge, I’d say not too well because she loves to read and shop and dress real fly, but at the same time I’d say she’s okay because she’s accepted the idea that she cannot see, so she reads books on tape, has other tools, like a huge magnifying glass, etc., uses public transportation for elderly people (she’s in Chicago, so it’s accessible), and she still dresses pretty fly 😉

      2. Awe bless her heart. I think the older we get the more difficult it can be when losing eyesight but it sounds like she’s maintaining. She’s fortunate to live in an accessible city, there’s some real horror stories on people with disabilities who do not have access to public transportation.

      3. Right! I can’t imagine what she’d do elsewhere, even in a large city like where I live (Jacksonville), it’s not quite as up to date with accessibility.

      4. That’s a shame but unfortunately a reality for many people living with disabilities. Pittsburgh is pretty accessible as well.

  15. How about ..My Friend is Bold Blind and Beautiful….Congrats

    1. Yup, Margie “My Friend…” is available as well.

  16. Congratulations on your new store front! May it prosper and enhance your life and the lives of others in enormous ways!

    1. Thank you Katelon!! Have a nice weekend 😀
