Day in the Life

Good morning Monday. I arrived to work with a blog in my head and stressful emails in my in-box.
So first, I thought I'd finish the blog: I've been taking a lot of pictures around the studio lately, finally I get to share some.
On a typical day at the studio these days, there might be Scott very skillfully hand-painting stripes to our Pochettes.
These have been getting a lot of blog love lately, among everything there's this: from oh joy and this from simplesong.

They are amazing...
This could be Mat's desk. We got a massive amount (for us) of orders for our cognac clutches with orange zippers from our Lucky deal of the day.
She is often adding finishing touches to clutches.
When she's not doing that she may be packing bags for shipping - like, the first batch of clutches to go out to lucky Lucky customers. But, besides that, how cute is Matilde? I say it all the time, but really! She's wearing vintage pumps. Phshaw $700 Isabels! Although, I do really want them ;)
And to top off all the things we have going on around here...On a typical day there's also Paco. He's Oscar's new puppy and while O is at school, Paco will be hanging out with us at studio for a while. Ummm, yeah. He's a major muffin. A little lamb.
And after work, some days, I might just go see PRINCE, during one of his 21 nights in Los Angeles. And I might just wear a gold studded, black jumpsuit.
A la 1985 when my big sister was going out to First Ave in Minneapolis to actually hang with Prince. I texted her on the way to concert (during the 2 hour sitting in traffic there was ample time to text safely), that I was wearing a tribute outfit to her, but that I was missing the headband she would have been wearing. She wrote back that it would have been a fedora. Ha! Touché.

Valeria, we don't know what kind he is only that he's part poodle. Does he look like your dog?
@FI, yes, it was amazing!! I'm totally in love with him again.

Thanks for your reply. Yes he looks like mine a bit same exact color and floppy ears. However mine is only 4 months and is already about 25 lb. Paco is so cute!!!
Thanks again,
Valeria

I grew up in the Midwest. Your mention of First Ave just jolted me back to college weekends spent in Minneapolis. Lovely "behind-the-scenes" post! Can't wait for my Lucky cognac clutch to arrive! -Colleen
