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.

Fifteen Favorite Things

1: Tavi Gevinson on the Nylon "It Girl" cover. We met her and did crafts together when Rookie came through Omaha on their tour, and she posted a picture of Alice’s pennant banner! Tavi called Alice a “rookie Rookie” and my heart melted. I also love the photos by Petra Collins and the intro by Hazel Cills. Writing for Rookie would be a dream. Let’s just say I’m a huge fan and this is a great article. 2: Our new Pounce Boots. I’ve been waiting for these bad boys since February! 3: My hair is growing out (No reason? I just stopped cutting it I guess?) and my go-to style has been to curl sections of my hair with a 1’’ iron and set them with these curl clips. It’s so easy.

Applejack Festival in Nebraska City, AKA Alice’s Best Weekend Ever

We left with a five pounds of freshly picked apples, a purse full of parade candy, worn-out carnival wristbands, and an angry sunburn to remember the trip by. Big thanks to the Nebraska City Tourism department and chamber of commerce for the amazing day at the Applejack Festival in Nebraska City. I grew up going…

The Entrepreneur Experience: An Interview with Lane Kennedy-Levy

I wanted to share this interview that just went up with Lane Kennedy Levy. It's a video interview about entrepreneurship, motherhood, the illusion of balance, regrets, TIPS, anxiety, mentors. I did the interview about 10 minutes after waking up from sleeping on the couch behind me all night. Cameos from my business partner Sarah and Hugo!

Personality Features

Never before has there been so much free advice at our fingertips for self-help in managing depression and anxiety, but so many years of trying to overcome the dumps by reading articles about gratitude and quotes about happiness and writing lists about small successes makes me more feel like I'm trying to dig myself out of quicksand. Thinking and meaning-making about my mood does nothing to improve my happiness. There's no logical solution to this because it's an unreasonable problem.

90-Minute Keynote

Posing a few questions to fellow speakers, fellow audience members (current and former), and fellow easily distracted people. Next month I'm presenting a 90-minute keynote address at a conference (subject: new-media marketing/youth markets) and I am terrified. Looking to my friends for a little guidance and reassurance on this.
