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.

    Excited to hear about the plus size options!

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.

Le Big Sale: 50% all shoes!

All of our fall deliveries are starting to come in and the boxes of inventory are piling up in a labyrinthian maze around the common areas of the office. We're hauling the shipments in, unpacking them, and checking quality as fast as they're arriving. It seems like we always have way more coming for fall than for spring, so this is like Christmas for me. My entire wardrobe for the next year is arriving!

“I look just like a businesswoman!”

I owe her a monthly letter soon--I have a lot to tell Future Alice. We just spent a week in Chicago on our first family vacation together and had a BLAST. We did all of the sights in six days and I learned what a fabulous travel companion my daughter is--her enthusiasm never decreased from sun up to sun down. The TSA! The airplane! The trains! The buses! The river through the city! The room key! The tiny soaps! The king-sized bed and cable TV! All so glamorous. And that's to say nothing yet of the amazing experiences we had at the planetarium, art museum, aquarium, science museum, department store...
