PUBLIC RELATIONS MANAGER, NEIMAN MARCUS SAN ANTONIO

By Brenda Coffee photographer Jennifer Denton

Xitlalt Herrera-Salazar is never trendy. Instead she is a study in chic without trying, understanding just the right length for a pair of wide-legged, cropped pants to mix with a classic silk blouse. Xitlalt (Sic-lali) is one of the most stylish women you will ever meet, and it’s not because she’s Public Relations Manager for Neiman Marcus. Style is in her DNA. Like her mother and her grandmother, Xitlalt is more than beautiful and well-dressed. She has a caring heart and a genuine compassion and sincerity that’s been passed down from both sides of her family.

“Giving back and treating people with kindness and respect is very important to me.” Continue Reading

Marla Ginsburg, Founder & CEO of Marla Wynne

By Brenda Coffee content editorial director Mark Grischke photographer Noel Sutherland

“It was hard in the beginning to talk about my story, because every time you remember the icky bits, you start to realize it can happen again,” said Marla Ginsburg. Marla, a former television producer of successful shows like “Highlander” and “La Femme Nikita,” was riding high in Hollywood until a few failed TV pilots and the 2007 Hollywood writer’s strike cratered her career. When her lifestyle and her life savings disappeared, Marla feared she and her kids would wind up living out of their car. With nothing to fall back on, Marla dug deep and got creative.

“When I realized how many people go through what I went through, I hope they can apply my story to their own journey,” said Marla.
