Tell us about yourself
Curating a modest closet isn't easy, and for me, that journey didn't happen overnight! In 2005 I turned my life to the Lord + strived to dress modestly. The struggle was very real in finding modest, fun, feminine, on-trend styles that I felt like myself in. In 2018, God laid Inherit on my heart. My husband, Anthony, and I prayed on this God-given opportunity, and we are SO thankful to be on this purpose-filled journey! Looking for quality, modest, feminine, and trendy outfits for your closet? Inherit's got you! I love designing modest clothing for women all over the world!
