Brenda Sillas Notable Quotes

“Everyday is a day when I want to feel good in my own skin to wear the dress if I wanted to. So I started to tap into the mindset of, ‘If I am going to be invited to a wedding tomorrow, I want to be ready.’ In that way, it’s like you celebrate your body, your mind, every single day versus looking for that one day where you look amazing and then the next day, you’re not caring.”
Brenda Sillas
