HELLO! I’M VANESSA SANDDAL

AND SINCE I WAS 3 YEARS OLD, I’VE KNOWN that life was magic.

As an adopted daughter of a wonderful couple from Montana, I never really quite fit in, and spent most of my life fantasizing that my birth mother was a Mystic, a Good Witch or a Fairy Queen. Harry Potter didn’t exist yet and the one TV station in town only showed The Wizard of Oz once a year.

YOu can't take the magic out of the girl.

Neither my parents nor my teachers could keep a lid on what they perceived as an overactive imagination. Honestly, it was seen as a bad thing and I spent most of my grade school years in a time-out chair shoved in the corner for daydreaming.

I was bursting at the seams with this knowledge, spending my days locking my bedroom door for hours so I could practice my spells out of a 50 cent mini-book I found at the local grocery store.

 

Because that’s the thing about Real Magic. It can never be squelched, shoved down, or put out. 

 

I spent decades fighting against who I really was and living a life that drained my creativity until my magic came pouring out as overachieving perfectionism (while still making people laugh with liberal splashes of self-deprecation). My life looked great on paper, but I felt crummy and completely non-magical on the inside. Until I found the shoes. Bright red, chunky-heeled shoes.

One day I wore them out of the house (on a Monday) with my black and white striped tights. Visions of Dorothy (and the Wicked Witch) danced through my head. I realized I was both (heroine and villain). We can live all sides of ourselves (through our clothes). They say “dress for the job you want.” I say “dress for the life you want.” Be yourself on the outside and your inside will follow.

MY MISSION—SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT—IS TO HELP YOU rediscover the REAL you.

...and then create a magical wardrobe to match.

OTHER IMPORTANT TIDBITS before we get started:

★ Fairy dog mother to Betty, a former ranch dog who now “herds” tennis balls into a pile.

★ I adore Monster High dolls. The clothes, the shoes and the the makeup inspire me.

★ I believe in boldly wearing red shoes with striped tights anytime you feel like it, not just on Halloween.

★ Once I created 100 Monster High costumes every day for 100 days without a sewing machine. I’ll show you how.

★ I used to be a Police Officer. Worst part: graveyard shifts. Best part: I got to dress up like Jon Snow.

★ My style? The Cat in the Hat meets the Wizard of Oz while fashionably falling down the rabbit hole.
