Through Judith Krantz, I really learned how a girl ought to live! Seriously from fashion to being a Boss, her storytelling really taught me how to live my best life. Maybe I live in the clouds, fantasy or fiction but I'll never forget the courage characters like Wilhelmina Hunnewell Winthrop ("Billy”) gave me to create my own reality. I’ve always been a bit dramatic! There’s something extremely empowering in reading the kind of fiction Krantz created. I didn’t read Sex and Shopping until the Fall/Winter of 2010 in which I found myself in an extremely unhappy marriage and situation. Maybe I needed some escapism - a place to dream. There I had all my answers to why I was drawn to Judith Krantz all those years. There were so many parallels to our lives and worlds. I made it a goal to send her a letter one day - basically I was totally fangirling but honestly, it took me a few years to write and send it. I was at a loss for words and didn’t want to sound exactly like to fangirl I was. Eventually, I got around to sending the letter. I never expected to hear back from her but a few weeks later she did. I was so happy, I made this cheesy video!
