How I Learned to Be Fierce

In Memory of: Dixie Carter

I was so sad to hear of one of my favorite actresses passing. My dear Dixie Carter from the 1980s show Designing Women lost her battle to cancer on Sunday. I used to watch Designing Women everyday after and before school for years during elementary, middle, and even high school so this was just terrible news!

I came to love the ladies on the show as dear friends. I learned so much from them: sarcasm, style, and how to be a strong female. Dixie's character Julia Sugarbaker especially possessed these traits. She was one of the first strong female leads on TV and I can tell you that I certainly learned from Julia. She always stood up for herself and her beliefs. She even did so in fab 80s suits and heels.

Boy was she FIERCE! That's where I learned it and I can thank Dixie for that.
