An extraordinary online community encouraging beautiful blind women to transcend barriers and walk boldly with confidence—in style, body, and soul.

Created by blogger Stephanae McCoy—businesswoman and passionate abilities crusader (who also happens to be blind), Bold Blind Beauty connects women interested in beauty and fashion and builds camaraderie between the sighted and non-sighted communities. The site also works to change the way we perceive blindness by eradicating misconceptions and long-held stereotypes about people with sight loss.

Visitors are guided by stylish fashion icon Abigale (Ability + Nightingale) or Abby, a fashionista who radiates an attitude of hip, laid-back sophistication with a pinch of bravura. Forever on the move, Abby is in the know about the latest styles and fashions, boldly walking with confidence (and of course always with her white cane), providing tips and techniques, answering questions and moderating discussions. And if you see something you just must have, you may find it on Abby’s very cool Shopping With Abby e-Commerce section (Shop) that lets your attitude dictate your fashion direction.

We hope you enjoy perusing the site and reading the blog—and please let us know what you think!
