Hey guys! Can you believe it is already September??!!! Where did this summer go? So much has been going on in my camp, I don’t even know where the time has gone! My kids start school next Tuesday, and this year we have decided to homeschool them, so our family is in the midst of an exciting new experience.
Our booth at Unique Markets Summer Session @ Barker Hangar
My booth partner, Renee Hulett of The Silver Feather (an awesome jewelry line!) and I @ Unique LA
The Verdana 3-in-1 makes it’s debut @ Unique Summer ’17 Market . . .
Day two, chatting with other makers and creatives . . .
Two weeks ago I participated in the Unique Summer Market @ Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. It was a two day show for makers + designers that I’d been contemplating doing for a while. Before I had surgery this summer, my friend Renee approached me about getting a booth together. She has a wonderful jewelry line called The Silver Feather. You can check out her wares here. Doing shows are really out of my comfort zone, but seeing as I was facing a dire prognosis, I thought it would give me something to shoot for recovery-wise, so I agreed to participate. I’m so glad I did. It was definitely an experience that pushed me outside of my comfort zone, nonetheless, it was a really fun show. I was inspired to create a new style which we debuted for the show: The Verdana 3-in-1 waist pack/cross body/clutch is an exercise in fashion + function. It can be worn 3 different ways which allows for ultimate versatility. We sold out of the black + camoflauge colors at the show, and have since sold out of liquid gold. So I am opening up pre-orders for a new batch! I’ve added the styles to the website so click here to check them out and preorder one for yourself or a friend!
I love Instagram. I have met so many wonderful people via Insta. One of my more recent encounters was connecting with Shah of ClosetPIECE.com. Shah + her partner + bff, Aliyah, have created a beautiful online space dedicated to promoting a culture of empowering women who are fashionable, “modern mommies.” How awesome is that? I relish the opportunity to support women who are following their passion, by creating viable businesses, and encouraging others along the way. I could feel Shah’s positive energy through our comments and subsequent emails.
I was recently given the opportunity to collaborate with ClosetPIECE and style one of their new BossMom T’s, and I was more than excited to do it. I love clothes, and having the ability to take an item of clothing and make it my own is one of the reasons I love fashion so much. I believe that our clothing is an external reflection of who we are + aspire to be, and that we should have fun with it! The BossMom T celebrates the many facets of who I am every day: a mother, entrepreneur, designer, artist, sister, daughter + friend. Being successful in each of those areas is not always simultaneous, but it is what drives me.
Shah + Aliyah are both mother’s and I love that the spirit behind their site is based on the empowerment of women. They celebrate women who are able to maintain who they are through the “hustle + bustle of motherhood.”
