Turning her challenging journey to motherhood into entrepreneurial success, Dallasite Stephanie D. Johnson is reinventing the experience of becoming a new mom. Johnson, founder of Bed Rest Concierge, discovered her professional passion during her own pregnancy. Today, she’s on a mission to make a difference in the lives of families and expectant women.
Dubbed the “celebrity maternity concierge” thanks to buzz-worthy media coverage from the likes of The Huffington Post and The Bethenny Frankel Talk Show, mothers coast-to-coast are now devoted to Johnson’s personalized services. Of course, we at DFW Style Daily wanted to know what fascinating fixations Johnson herself might be keeping confidential. In this week’s edition of Obsession Confession, find out what the CEO, speaker, author, and mom, is hot on this summer. Click here to read more Obsession Confessions!
The Obsession: Even late summer weather can’t curb Johnson’s addiction to haute leather.
The Confession: “I live in Texas, but I refuse to give up my leather no matter the season,” Johnson gushed, admitting that Diane von Furstenberg’s versatile, adjustable pencil skirt (below) is her favorite summer find.
The Rationalization: The expert underscored her commitment to the needs of new moms, explaining, “It’s my #MommySwag must-have for women seeking to get their sexy back after baby! This skirt is chic, transitions easily from day to night, and makes a great swap for maternity pants.”
The Collection: Rounding out her sleek selection, Johnson added, “For spring, I also always have my leather shirt dresses ready to go.” Not to mention, nonstop travel for her company and its clients provides the perfect excuse to stock up on leather pants and blazers, too.
Shop It: To steal Johnson’s signature look, seek out DVF’s sexy skirt ($329) at the label’s boutique in Highland Park Village. Prefer animal-friendly options? Check out Piperlime’s vegan leather pieces by Tinley Road (top, $64; dress, $55; skirt, $79, above).
