Jane Round is an awesome designer and we have her exclusive collection.

I wanted to share with my own readers a little bit about Hello Holiday’s first emerging designer, Jane Round.

I met Jane through Omaha Fashion Week where she first debuted her work on the runway at age 15. Now she’s flown the coop from her beautiful home in the scenic woodlands west of Omaha and is studying fashion design at FIT in New York City. I visited her often over the summer at her well-outfitted studio just down the hall from her parents’ bedroom discussing the line she designed exclusively for Hello Holiday, advising fabric choices, and checking in on progress. The work she created–six original pieces designed to dress up or down, wash in your own machine, and last for years–couldn’t be more representative of Jane’s aesthetic of easy-to-wear vintage-inspired glamor, or her carefree, easygoing personality. Truly beautiful.


A few of my personal favorites

I encourage you all to check out what she’s designed for us. If you have any questions about the look or fit of a certain piece, we’d be happy to show it on a fit model in your size. We also offer free exchanges on our emerging designer pieces–just return the garment with the included shipping label, and we’ll be sure you get the right size.

Jane is incredibly sharp, talented, and certainly one to watch in the fashion world. I’m excited to have had the chance to work with her.

What would you do with a billion dollars?

Lately Sarah and I were talking about how much a million is, how much a billion is. The most striking thing I read recently that put it into perspective was that a million seconds is about a week and a half, but a billion seconds is nearly 32 years. Sarah asked me, what would I…

2014, in list form.

Wise people always say not to focus on the negative. It turns out that that's good advice, because there's a lot of positive out there. I was in a depressy mood last week depressing to my friend/advisor/midnight oil hero Jason about something I typically depress about, and when we started talking about what was good this year instead of bad, it felt like a much more successful year. Wildly so. Adventurous. Daring. Extraordinary. Fortuitous. And not nearly all work-related. My intention for 2015 is "less surviving, more living," but I sure did squeeze a lot of life out of the past year or so. 2014 is going down in history. Why not make a list? Here's mine.

Know that the next year will surpass all others.

"Oh passion-filled days, all steadfast and young, know that the next year will surpass all others, because it is new, and because it will be filled with moments that will remain unspoken of harsh and light, right along with your steady heart.
When we allow ourselves the sweetness of now, we may have all of the adventures that life has to offer in the coming year—if we are so fortunate as to have one."

Alice Elfie’s Day Off

Alice and I stayed home today so we could start making presents for our family. It's hard to find much time to be together and do any of that between getting off work and bedtime, so we both took a day off! We listened to the Mariah Carey holiday Pandora station all day and had personal pan pizzas delivered for lunch, and ate all the cookies we wanted from a cookie exchange we went to last weekend. Here's what we made, including links!

OOTD: Clothes to covet

Today Alice and I are staying home to work on all of our Christmas gifts together! With my new work schedule, there isn't a lot of time between work and bed to finish any meaningful projects together, so we both took the day off to make and wrap all of our gifts. One thing on my gift list is this outfit. If we don't sell out of my size before the holidays, I'll definitely be buying it from the store. Usually I just buy whatever I want as things come in or order extra for myself, but during the holidays I want to give all of our extra inventory a chance to sell at full price before I snatch it up.
