How Fashion got me through Chemotherapy

We recently spoke with Simple Habit about how we’ve dealt with stress in our lives. (Which we will link to when it comes out.) Let me tell you how that major stressor made us find Marigold Shadows, one of our favorite clothing brands!

If you’re new here, I (Emily) was diagnosed with cancer in 2018. I underwent 12 rounds of very taxing chemotherapy treatments. I lost my hair, eyelashes, eyebrows, strength, and control over my body. Mentally, I was a mess. Between all the tests, awaiting results, having to surround yourself with sickness constantly, being stricken to my home for over six months because of a low immune system. Emotionally, I was even more of a mess. I looked in the mirror and didn’t see myself. I didn’t feel like myself. I had to experience something that so many people didn’t comprehend at 30 years old.

I knew that the only way to get through this was to have something to look forward to, even if I didn’t know what the future held. Abigail was a key player in that and I couldn’t have gone through chemo with a smile if it wasn’t for her (and believe me that’s hard to do.) We would plan for trips we would take, experiences we wanted to have and most importantly, clothes we wanted to buy.

I found Marigold Shadows from an Instagram ad that I happened upon during chemo. Instead of focusing on that awful day I got lost perusing their website. I was in love. Their pieces had such a unique shape and were different than what we were seeing. PLUS, it was a whole lot of black, our fav!

We were so psyched when they reached out and gifted us these looks we’re wearing. A corset over a billowy shirt dress?! Sequin two-faced blazer. It was so us!

Yes, they make clear pants and yes, we own them. Check out how we styled them here!

Go to their site and let us know what your favorite pieces are!
