Bold Blind Beauty is…
An extraordinary online community which encourages beautiful blind women to transcend barriers and walk boldly with confidence—in style, body, and soul.
Created by style 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 sighted and non-sighted communities. The site also works to change the way we perceive blindness by wiping out misconceptions and long-held stereotypes about people with sight loss.
Visitors are guided by stylish fashion icon Abigale 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 Now) 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!
Abby Image Description:
Bold Blind Beauty’s fashion icon Abigale (Abby) is to the left of a checklist “Handbag, Heels, White Cane.” Directly under her and the checklist is the slogan: “Ready to Conquer”
Abby is walking with her white cane in one hand, handbag in the other, is black and white, wearing black heels and a stylish black dress made of panels resembling overlapping banana leaves. The dress panels gently curve from her nipped in waist to just above the knee. Her signature hairstyle is best described as explosive.
