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: Windy, Rainy, Snowy, Sunny.

I'm doing a panel talk tonight (my fourth of the week), then Friday morning I'm leaving at 6am for Ikea in Kansas City, then driving on to Bentonville Arkansas for an event at the Crystal Bridges Museum, then back up north to Chicago for a Bears game on Sunday, then back west through Iowa to Omaha to arrive Monday night and get to work again. Then it's gearing up for Thanksgiving week, which will be the most important week of my online (and beyond...) retail career.

Leaving a Mark: A new mural project in Benson

Omaha artist Watie White is currently creating a series of murals in partnership with Justice For Our Neighbors-Nebraska where he interviews and creates a linocut portrait of several new immigrants to Omaha. With support of other organizations including the Intercultural Senior Center, Omaha Public Schools, the South Sudan Community Association, and the Anti-Defamation League, he's creating these small-scale carved portraits and then turning the art into giant murals all over town. This is one of two murals Watie is doing currently in the neighborhood of Benson in Omaha--you can see it on the side of the Benson Law Center. The themes in the text are inspiring--the desire for education, the bravery of leaving home in hopes of a better life, and a compulsion to give back to the communities that have welcomed them.

OOTD: Wooly and warm on Election Day. Go vote!

Go vote today! Every midterm election matters. Our local officials are the ones who are both most accessible to us, and who have the most impact on our daily lives. Partisan interest groups thrive on indifference, and sitting out of the vote serves only to continue the status quo of gridlock and fear-based campaigning. Locals, show the big money coming into Nebraska's races that we're smarter than that.

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.
