Own Your "Pretty"

“For Attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
 For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
 For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
 For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.
 For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone...."
~Sam Levenson

Our slogan here at Bedford Falls Headwear (as many of you already know from our buttons to our business cards) is "Stay Pretty". We chose this simple saying for many reasons. Of course, the more obvious reason is because we make and sell decorative accessories to, essentially, lead the wearer to feel "pretty" (because you all already are).  However, beyond the feather and frill, we also encourage ladies to "Stay Pretty" in self-awareness and confidence. 

We believe that staying pretty is a battle against a social perception that leads women to ridicule themselves due to physical imperfections. Well, gird up your loins ladies and grab your armor because we are fighting beside you! 

While we know that physical beauty has a place, we also know that true beauty and femininity consists of character traits; traits that not only encompass sensitivity and gentleness but also strength and compassion. Patience and kindness, self control and tolerance. Leadership and influence. These are all our beauties.

If you look at the cover of any fashion or figure magazine, you may not see yourself, however, let us assure you; WE DON'T SEE OURSELVES EITHER, but that is not our measure of beauty. YOU ARE PRETTY, AND WE SEE IT! 

Our fascinators are just a small way to bring out the "pretty" that you already have brought to the table. So when we say "Stay Pretty", what we are really saying is; all that you already have to offer is pretty, believe in it and don't ever loose it! Find and know your "pretty", own your "pretty" and be your "pretty" for the rest of your life....and let us top it all off with a feather ;)
