The name Dalia MacPhee is big in fashion. The designer’s gowns and other clothing have been featured in a number of major department stores, and has been worn by A-list celebs all over!
In a TED talk last year, Dalia spoke about her ventures, admitting that she’s always wanted to combine fashion and technology, and tried her hand at it in the early 2000s. She came up with the idea of these jeans that had a lit-up kiss on the back, and Macy’s decided to sell them. That year, it was Macy’s #1…FLOP. Nonetheless, Dalia picked herself up, and kept pressing forward in her goal, and is now creating a line of intelligent purses that will charge your electronics, light up when you’re getting a call on your phone and so much more!
Dalia shared her story of failure with this audience, expressing to them that every good idea has its time. Her failure with the jeans brought about the better and more relevant idea of creating these purses later in life. It may not have worked out for her the first time, but now she’s continue to expand her brand with an idea that she was passionate about and revamped.

These words of wisdom are so relevant to me, because this was my life. Not too many people know that I tried my hand at creating inspirational posts when I first created my online writing portfolio, BrittanyShawnte.com, in 2012. I shared some positive words, but it was a flop of my own. I wasn’t completely ready, so the idea fell to the wayside…until this year. I revamped my ideas and worked on creating a better website fully committed to uplifting other people, and the site’s growing each day!
So every idea that you have might not work on the first try. But if it’s something that you know you’re passionate about, and have a true vision for, don’t give up on it!
