A LUCKY BREAK
A huge, bright, shiny white truck ran a stop sign from behind the trees and never even saw her on the pedestrian path one beautiful Saturday morning in Miami, Florida. A “Lucky Break”, because if he had emerged only a second later, she probably wouldn’t be here to tell this story.
A “Lucky Break”??!! She now had a broken arm, pain and discomfort, a new full-time job, a hectic social life, two busy children, a home and four dogs to care for, now at half the speed when she needed to go twice as fast. Every ordinary task became an ordeal, and to add insult to real injury, she felt ridiculous wearing an ugly, uncomfortable sling. In addition, the fracture got worse because the bone needed to be securely immobilized, so not only was the sling unsightly and uncomfortable, it wasn’t working. In the meantime, she still had to work, attend social events, get her children to school and run her home.
So what does a socially active, fashion forward, busy working mother and entrepreneurial American woman do when she has to attend a black tie affair ten days later? She designs a beautiful black sling in soft comfortable material with gorgeous sequin trim and wears it with her very chic, black strapless gown that evening. No one realized it was a sling, and Sling Couture™ was born!
