It may have been Stan Lee who penned, “with great power comes great responsibility,” but moms live this truth daily. Whether it’s heading a start up, running errands or coaching our sidekick’s weekend soccer game (or all of the above!), moms really do do it all. Flip through to meet 13 Seattle moms who prove you don’t need to wear a cape to have super powers.
Darcy Camden, Founder and Chief Stylist, Styled Seattle
When it comes to fashion, Darcy Camden can claim Guru Status. It’s one of the perks that comes with being dubbed “Seattle’s Stacy London” and doling out style tips weekly on King 5 New Day NW and frequently on Q13 News. Her son Wes (2) loves keeping an eye on mom from backstage, something he's been doing since he was three weeks old! When she’s not on TV, Darcy helps people build “versatile wardrobes that are functional and stylish” made up of pieces they love, through her company, Styled Seattle. Over the past ten years, she’s watched her business grow and she’s super proud of her two style suites at Pacific Place and Westfield Southcenter Mall. As a mom, she totally gets how stressful shopping can be. For her clients, these suites become oases that make shopping easy, efficient and affordable. Plus, they have wine!
As for doing it all, Darcy gives props to her awesome husband who helps her juggle her unpredictable schedule, coordinating day care pick ups and hanging with Wes when Darcy needs to work. While trying to make it all come together, Darcy’s secret ingredient is focusing on what she is doing, not on what she’s not. Sounds good to us!
Power Mom Pearl: “I’m so proud of my supportive, inspiring and fun tribe of girlfriends. We help each other, encourage each other and work together to get things done. I know that if I need help with anything, I have a list of people on whom I can call and they will show up; and whenever anyone calls on me, I spring into action. That’s how we roll!”
