The Woman I wanted to Be

I think you are already sick of knowing that for months I wasn’t able to read and, I keep repeating it because it was the thing that most bothered me during these last months… But hey, this part of my life ended and now I’m back reading as there is no tomorrow!!!


Last week I read a wonderful book by Diane Von Furstenberg, for who of you that don’t know who this wonderful lady is, she is the creator of the wrap dress… Still not sure? Ok,  for who of you that don’t know what a wrap dress is no problem, it will be enough to tell you that if you want to read about strong women this is the right book for you!

This would be a wonderful book also for men, cause it would open your eyes to the women’s’ mysteries and strength based on love. Yes, women power is held and supported by their love.

Diane Von Furstenberg

Diane Von Furstenberg describes her life and her mother’s life in a beautiful loving way, going through the years showing that freedom and the courage of accepting ourselves for who we really are is the most important thing and we owe it to ourselves.  The courage of listening to her instincts gives to the reader the courage to follow their own convictions knowing that their instincts will never fail them. She’s fearless and totally committed to becoming the women she wants to be.

The sincerity of owning her life and her decisions no matter what.

Princess, woman, wife, lover, daughter, mother and grandmother she wrote owning her life, her decisions and her mistakes in good and bad being loyal to herself.


Reading this book I felt that nothing is impossible if you believe in yourself and that love is the fundamental key to everything.

Diane starts her book relating the story of her mother Lily Nahmias. Diane drags you back to the Second World War and your heart will disintegrate with the courage of the back then young girl, Lily, going to Auschwitz repeating the mantra “Fear is Not an Option”! An example of fearless unconditional love to live.

” God has saved my life so that I can give you life”

Lily Nahmias

This is the story of a successful woman that could have chosen to live her life easily and comfortably but that instead decided that she was gonna become the woman she wanted to be no matter what it took. Brave, Loving and passionate.

“I am the daughter of a Woman who went to the concentration camp with a smile”

Diane Von Furstenberg

I recommend you to read this book and get inspired, for those that already read it, please leave your thoughts below.

The Woman I Wanted to Be by Diane Von Furstenberg is definitely one of the best books I’ve ever read, and she is definitely a role model.

Thank you for reading!
