I am super stoked to feature the lovely Farrah this week for Friend Feature Friday! Farrah and I officially first met digitally when she reached out to me on Facebook. She has an awesome blog – Greater Lengths – which is a style and shopping guide for modest apparel. She was gracious enough to ask me to be a part of Fashion With Compassion as a Style Panelist back in October – which I throughly enjoyed and ever so grateful to her. Back in November she was a rockstar and ran the NYC Marathon!! A huge accomplishment! Farrah is extremely kind and full of light! She definitely is calm and cool under pressure from what I’ve seen and I aspire to be as awesome as she is!
Keep reading to get to know Farrah!

- “Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time. It is regret for the things we did not do that’s inconsolable.” –Sydney J. Harris
- And finally, a quote that struck me right in the chest. My friend bought me a great book called, “Letters from a Young Poet” – a collection of letters Rainer Marie RIlker wrote to a mentee, in which he dispensed the following advice. I received this book at 25 and everything about this quote put my quarter-life angst into perspective.
- “You are so young, so before all beginning, and I want to beg you, as much as I can, dear sir, to be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answer, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” -Rainer Maria Rilke
