Where does the inspiration come from to do what you do?
"I've always had an affinity for elegance and glamour."
"As a child I can remember watching the Lawrence Welk Show. Although I loved the music, I would always be anxious to see what glamorous dresses the girls would be wearing that night. I especially loved the Lennon sisters."
"To this day I still get some of my best fashion ideas from things I see on TV."
What are three things most people don't know about you?
"Well I hope people know there is a special place in my heart for people with special needs. That is why I try to do all I can to help with the Arkansas Angels Pageant. Those boys and girls are such gifts from God."
"Secondly, before I founded Cindy's Pageant Dresses (now Cindy's), one of my hobbies was actually making porcelain dolls."
"Lastly... I don't know if most people realize my appreciation for music, but I love, love, LOVE music. It is in my soul. From Al Green and Percy Sledge, to Elvis, bluegrass and even old country music. I could listen to it all the time!"
Tell us about your family.
"My family is very important to me. I have always been very family oriented."
"I have two sons who are such a handful and I love so very much."
"When I'm not designing dresses, at the store, or keeping up with the boys, I love spending time with my dear mother who has been such a blessing and inspiration to me."
What keeps you doing what you do?
"I love watching young girls transform when they put a dress on and see themselves for the first time."
"For me, personally, seeing the confidence it instills in young girls makes what I do a very rewarding business to be in."
