With the right fashion & style tools, I have learned to love myself again and want to help others do the same.
Hi there, I’m Becca! I am so excited to get to know you and hope you will join me in the marvelous world of style, self-love and Agnes & Dora!
I have spent the past 7-8 years working as an independent graphic designer. From doing web design to product design for both paper and digital scrapbooking. I have spent many long hours tied to my computer in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. As much as I enjoy graphic design and even still do it, it was taking a toll on me physically. I love having my own business and want to contribute to my family’s finances so I forced myself to stick with it and try to earn what I could.
One day I started noticing my friends sharing pictures of these gorgeous Agnes & Dora pieces they bought for their wardrobe. Being a bigger girl myself, I looked and thought oooh pretty but went on. I mean it wouldn’t fit me correctly right? Heck, I wasn’t even sure they made larger sizes. After I started seeing it more and more I decided to check out these beautiful pieces to see what all the hype in my circle was about. At first I thought I would start small and try a pair of the A&D leggings. I will be honest.. I didn’t think they would be all that amazing. I really didn’t think they would even fit. I remember buying my first pair, and boy was I anxious when it came to putting them on for the first time. Um. Wow. Even more honesty here, I loved these leggings so much I left them on. I was so concerned about the elastic waist more than anything. But nope, not an issue at all. It actually felt amazing on and they stayed in place. It was love. True love. I felt amazing in them.
Next thing I know, I am buying tops and more. I am totally in love with everything. I am actually getting out of my PJs for the day (which was basically my work uniform) and getting dressed! Dressed I tell you! I also noticed as I was getting dressed ( and still feeling comfortable) that I was feeling good. I was happy. You know I said I was fluffy. And I haven’t had a good relationship with clothes in a long time. I used to love clothes when I was a thinner girl. As a bigger girl, I felt I didn’t have a lot of options. Agnes & Dora has changed that. And it feels great. I love having my spark back. I love that I am wanting to take better care of myself now. I want to be a girly girl. I want to do my hair instead of yank it up in a knot. I want to wear makeup. I want to get healthy inside and out. It is such an amazing feeling. I want to be a better me.
After I starting this love affair with Agnes & Dora I really love not only how the clothing makes me feel but what the company stands for. The name Agnes & Dora is based off a book written by the founder’s, Buffy, grandmother. In the book, titled “The Secret Power of Femininity” by Maurine Startup, Agnes & Dora represent 2 sides to a woman; Dora…the fun loving, playful side & Agnes.. the best friend, confidant side. The goal is to bring out both sides of these traits within ourselves and apply them to achieve a balanced, happy, and fulfilling life with lasting relationships. The book and the brand are about empowering women and promoting self love. It made me want to become a part of this amazing brand and join a stellar group of reps who all share the same vision. Through my own journey, I want to help other women find their spark again. To have a little soulshine in their life. To love themselves. It isn’t just about clothing. It is a feeling, being body positive and I am proud to be a part of it.
