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.

Bye old friend: Quitting Diet Coke.

It's now been one month since I quiet Diet Coke cold turkey. I had been drinking 6-8 cans per day, from when I woke up to when I went to sleep. That's a lot, but I'd been drinking more or less that for about 10 years. I don't like coffee or tea, so soda was my only source of caffeine, which I thought I needed to exist.

Letter to Alice no. 32

As I look back over the letters I’ve written you in the past, I feel like there’s a theme of reassurance, joy, and calm in the gifts you give me as your mother. You seem to always make my life easier exactly when I need it most. My heart is always yours, and it will always be yours, in every world, in every life, in every drawing you make, in every dream you have.

Progress report: A muted jewel tone bouquet

I've got the thread pile and pincushions back out on my lap and I've got a bazillion movies queued up on Netflix, and that can only mean one thing--I'm back in the saddle doing some more bridal bouquets! Here are some flowers I finished tonight that shows the first phase finished. Next come the buttons, choosing the perfect color and shape for each flower to compliment the bride's vision for the color and tone of the bouquet. After that, each flower gets stemmed and arranged, and then I start working on filler flowers and leaves which are added last. The colors used in these flowers might seem kind of all-over-the-place, but once the buttons are added and they're arranged together, it will look very cohesive.

New for March: My favorites!

It's that time of year when we're starting to get a lot of new things into the shop, but this season is even more exciting to me because so many of our designers are brand new to us as well. I'm noticing a theme throughout my favorite picks--lots of words and messages. I generally think it's good to let your clothes speak for themselves, that they don't need to speak for you, but a playful message here and there (especially one of our enamel lapel pins on a conservative business suit?) can be memorable in a good way.
