princess lasertron f/w 2012 – photos from omaha fashion week

I’m so excited to see these first photos coming in from the Omaha Fashion Week show last Friday where I showed my fall/winter collection. These photos were taken by my friend Greg Higgins during the show–be sure to visit his website to see more of his great work throughout the week.

The girls walked to Len’s Steal My Sunshine and Your Woman by White Town. So maybe cue those up before you scroll through the pictures. After the final parade, I sang a few bars at the end of the runway.

The inspiration for this collection was Kay Thompson’s character Eloise as a teenager. Stealing lipstick and eyeliner testers from the counters at Saks. Her expensive dresses and skirts rumpled on the floor. Slamming her door at the Plaza Hotel and lying to Nanny about spending the night with a friend. You know she’s going to Harvard, but what would she wear with her bad, ungrateful attitude?

These photos are from Greg Higgins. You can also visit the Omaha Fashion Week gallery from Muller, Lomneth, and Conces to see more photos from the week. There is so much talent in Omaha–the people power required to put on one successful show is gigantic, and OFW brings it all together into one well-produced week all tied up with a bow. It was a pleasure to showcase my work in their show for the last three years.

As more pictures come in I will be sure to share them!

OOTD: Pleats and Posies

This dress gets filed into my personal "business drag" collection, the section of my closet devoted to things I would costume myself in to fit in to another person's board room, a nerve-wracking meeting, or a pitch.

What’ I’ve Learned: Marketing on Blogs and Social Media in 2014

Barbara Soderlin, a reporter for the Omaha-World Herald, recently contacted me for some comment about local companies advertising with bloggers in Omaha and we ended up having a really rich discussion about the changing landscape of online advertising in an age of social media. She had seen me post on Facebook about the decline of blogs as the epicenter of reader engagement in favor of other platforms that ask a little less of its users.

New at Hello Holiday: Dear Creatures Fall!

Dear Creatures is by far a favorite brand for our customers. I’m excited about every new piece we have from this LA-based husband/wife designer duo. Bianca and Rob describe their line as “visual optimism,” and I love how they blend their expert understanding of decades past with the sensibilities and whimsy of the modern woman.

OOTD: Dress of my Witchy Dreams

This dress fulfills everything I could ever ask of a garment destined to be a workhorse in my closet for years to come. Tiny gold round buttons at the cuffs and on the back, irregular pleating, and my favorite silhouette. I feel beautiful in this breezy black dress and I think it’s one of the…

OOTD: Extra Sprinkles

Right down the street from our downtown office is Pettit's Pastry, a 60-year-old downtown institution that still makes the best glazed old-fashioned donuts in the city. The original signs outside on the corner of 16th and Cass match the kitchy decor inside, where vintage bakery cases are packed with fresh and delicious donuts and pastries of all types. Seasonally decorated cookies and cakes, donuts with every filling and topping, and flaky krispies and pies fill the air with the aroma of sweetness, fryer grease, and childhood memories.
