Babes in Vegas: Photos from market at WWD Magic!

I’ve been dealing with some pretty bad carpal tunnel for the last few weeks, and with writing my book and needing to work on the computer each day it’s been very difficult to prioritize tasks, writing, and sewing. I did want to share photos from my trip to Las Vegas last week with my Hello Holiday co-founder Sarah and our Beauty Director Rebecca.

Vegas is not my favorite city in the world by a long shot, and market always puts us through the wringer. There’s no better way to spend it than laughing with a group of friends who are all content to stay in the hotel with a tall alcoholic slushie and soak our feet in the tub. A very successful trip overall–we found the most ladylike t-shirts ever, the perfect boots, and a huge range of new plus-sized options. I’m most excited about the handful of new designers we found who will be making some exclusive pieces for us in sizes XS-3X. Such a fantastic trip and so worth it.

when you want to work as remotely as possible: traveling for business

A: Travel is important to me because it helps my morale. It recharges my spirit. Every month or two? I like to get away as often as I can…probably sometimes to the annoyance of my business partner and coworkers. It’s always important to me to find something to work on wherever I go–a reason to make it worth my while from a business perspective–but there are some places I go just to ONLY work.

OOTD: Office Hours

This summer instead of having our 4-year-old Alice go to her school’s summer program, Dave and I decided to get a nanny. Her name is Kylie and she’s been WONDERFUL over the past two months! I really wish we could keep her all year and just have Alice in this hybrid coparenting-learning-field tripping-coming to the office situation, but I’m not sure I’m up for all the coordination it would take. I’m definitely considering it because I’ve never seen Alice so engaged and happy–she plays all day, does art and science camps and activities all over town, and gets lots of time outside, which leads to nice early bedtimes. Smile. I love having her at work after 4 every day and all day on Fridays.

Letter from a reader: Changes and consistency

I am a long time reader of your blog and have seen it through its various incarnations. I wondered if you might find inspiration one day to discuss the changes, i.e., the changes in you. For example (and these are purely from memory, so I may very well be misremembering things or just plain getting things wrong):

A Long Day

1. Woke up and read Dril’s favstar to start my day off on the right foot. Dropped Alice off at her first day of summer art camp—sculpture making at the Joslyn Art Museum. 2. Quick shower and blow-dry before Rebecca Forsyth’s Vintage-Inspired Hairstyling salon training class. 3. Got my hair set with my good friend and former Princess Lasertron model Caitlin. 4. Snacks on Jonathan Adler dishes under beautiful boxes of hair color. 5-6. Rebecca setting and styling Caitlin’s hair. 7. The “after.”
