Today we are going to get to know Danielle!  
She is an amazing girl who I've gotten to know quite well over the years as we've bonded over silks, bobbles & metallic anythings!

takes risks & has started numerous trends.

It is a true classic love story but also covers a major historical war 
& the period costuming is incredible.

 My favorite day activity is walking down to the market on 104th on Saturday mornings.

My favorite festival is Heritage Days because I love food & being surrounded by 
different cultures.

Give B&B ladies one piece of advice…
My advise for B&B ladies is to find something you love to do & do it 
well! Never compromise your values for anyone or anything else.

I recently went to the Water Garden Spa at the Enjoy Center & wore 
by striped Fullcircle dress. As I walked into the spa, all the ladies 
at the counter commented on my dress & two people came up to touch 
the dress. After a hard work week, I felt so beautiful & special, &  
I hadn't even received any spa treatments yet! The clothes at B&B make 
me feel comfortable, unique, & truly allow me to express my 
individual style. I have never felt better!
