Ready to Stare is one of our favorite jewelry lines, and it has now turned into an empowerment engine. Fashionable jeweler, Alysse Dalessandro has taken a line from Beyonce and used it to free herself and allow ladies holding onto insecurities to free themselves, too. It is things like this that need the most attention, especially for young women in their early teens, looking for the right role models to choose.
This movement is uncovering an encouraging meaning of "I woke up like this"--being comfortable with the woman you wake up as, and not being wrapped up in what others say you should look like.
#ReadyToStareWokeUpLikeDis helps women look inside themselves and tell the stories they were too scared to share. This movement is more than necessary, as we continue to live in a judgmental world supported by photoshop, airbrushing, and such a new, often hesitant, embrace for curvy figures.
We are so proud of Alysse and her movement, and encourage you to join her.
