Chapter 6: Maria Dueñas Jacobs
When do you feel the most like you? “Spending time with my close circle of friends and family. Where I can let my hair down, not worry and just laugh.”
The Rebecca Taylor dress that defined her twenties…“I wore this dress in my twenties to weddings and events. It was my fun party dress because it’s floral and flirty with a corset top and lots of fabric. I would twirl around and dance in it for hours.”
Her mantra…I read a great one on a tea bag once—'if you know all is light, you are enlightened.’”
On the meaning of fashion… “Fashion is about self-expression. It’s an amazing tool to change your day and your mood.”
Rebecca Taylor makes me feel…
