how they can put their own looks together, I want the pieces that can be
easy to dress up or down, and the fabrics being eco-friendly and organic
is super important, Also, the tags will all have some of my
inspirational quotes on them. I'm just looking to send a good message."

partnering, "When I met Tony and Sandra, I was instantly comfortable
with them and now they are just like family to me ... They are so

They've been so cool about everything." The brand was manufactured by,
