Get your shop on!

So I'm figuring out that opening a store, moving a business, running a business, while trying to maintain a semblance of a family life doesn't leave much time for my blog! I'm so upset about this. Just when I was on a roll...oh well, soo we'll be at LUCKY SHOPS LA. Apparently this has been a really great sale in New York for a while now and this year they are starting it in Los Angeles. Some really good lines will be there, like Kathryn Bentley ;), Wren ;), and many, many others...

And I've been obsessively trying to find inspiration for the store. It's coming along, but far from ready. I'll post some work-in-progress pics in a bit, but until then, here are a few shops I've found inspiring. When I look at these pictures I start to get really excited to have a shop! I've never thought of it this way, but they're great places actually. At their best they are dreamy spaces where things are perfect, and clean and everything is beautiful all the time - respites from the crowded street and world outside. I'm excited to provide that for people coming in off Sunset in Silverlake. :) We have projected early May as our opening time, but we'll be at LUCKY SHOPS starting tomorrow night through Saturday. Buy tix here and come get your shop on!!

I can't wait to finally shop your store! & it's right by the hair salon, the hive. I'm going to be in trouble when I go there to get a trim!

Are you going to Paris this Summer? Maybe we should have a private sale in London or something... :-)

I find the way your business has grown and the manner in which you've preserved and communicate your brand inspiring. I'm sure your shop will come together beautifully and am excited to see the final setup! And I'm not saying this because I just purchased one of your blue messenger bags :)
