When Jewish Upon A Star:
BFF (Best Fran Forever) Fran Drescher & “Being Wendy”
We got style.
We got flair.
I went there!
That’s how I met
Me meeting Fran:
I literally was like this the entire time:
Fran Drescher was at Books & Cookies last night to promote & do a book signing for “Being Wendy.” Although it’s marketed as a children’s book, the overall message laughs in the face of age because it’s a relatable tale for everyone.
Without giving too much away, Wendy lives in Boxville, a town where everyone wears a box with one word that defines who they are (i.e. “teacher” or “mom.”) Wendy has a hard time choosing a box because she can’t be labeled in a box, she thinks outside the box, and she has many “boxes,” she wears.
The story – like I try to do here at Fashionasty Headquarters – promotes originality and individuality. It’s a universal, powerful, and important lesson to teach children (& all ages) about living your life FOR YOU.
It’s rare we get to meet our icons in life…but there I was clad in my poorman’s Cher Horowitz white knee highs with Fran Drescher at Books & Cookies in Santa Monica chatting away about our closets, Mr. Sheffield, Halloween costumes, and how meeting her [Fran] that night was a dream come true for me & many others in attendance…
Thanks Fran for always spreading positivity into the world and encouraging others to do the same!
And a special thank you to Chutney of Books & Cookies for making this all happen along with my new friend Cassie for taking my picture!
