For Fashion Forward Moms’ Eyes Only

Pimp mom’s car keys. Why not give a boring necessity like keys, a funky facelift?! Feathery, vibrant handcrafted tassels that won’t add unneeded weight, but will add much needed flair. Custom orders are welcome. You’re an Austin area local, you don’t say. Head over to the Lavish Leathers store in Buda to shop and satiate your inner fashionista. Sisters and owners Amber and Sienna would be glad to share their story of how creativity ran wild in their family. They were taught at a young age the joy of creativity and sharing it with others. Their mom made homemade Barbie outfits and their grandfather was an artist who loved painting. Not from the Lone Star State?

Mothers and Daughters Across the Country Bond Over Womanhood

This past year, there has been a growing sense of solidarity among women who refuse to be silenced. Deeply rooted in the fight for gender equality is the relationship between mothers and daughters.

Women’s rights were fought for by mothers who wanted their daughters to experience freedoms they never could. Strengthening the mother-daughter bond has the power to change generational patterns of gender inequality.

Author Deborah Santana is uniting and empowering generations of women by sharing the realities, joys and challenges of motherhood in her new book All the Women in My Family Sing. This anthology is the only book created entirely by women of color and it was just named one of Vogue’s Life Changing Books of 2018.

Through this book, mothers and daughters across the country are bonding over the shared experience of womanhood. The anthology is a collection of poetry and prose by sixty-nine women from different generations and backgrounds (including African American, Native American, Asian American, Muslim, Cameroonian, Kenyan, Liberian, Mexican American, Korean, Chinese American, and LGBTQI.)

Contributors include America Ferrera, Samina Ali, Natalie Baszile (Queen Sugar), Porochista Khakpour (Sons and Other Flammable Objects), Lalita Tademy (Cane River), Mila Jam, Marian Wright Edelman (Children’s Defense Fund), and many more.
