Bangs or No Bangs?

December 30, 2010
With the new year just around the corner, I thought it would be a fun idea to post this blog about whether or not I should get bangs :) I have been wanting to change my hair for awhile now and have dabbled with the idea of getting bangs..Rodney Groves(an amazing hairstylist who I adore... check out his work here http://www.art-dept.com/hairandmakeup/groves/)
did these bangs for fun for me on a recent shoot I did(details to come more in 2011) and I received a lot of different reactions- my assistant Michelle said "it seems like you've had them all along" and others have said I look like a movie actress from the past. Either one I'll take ;)

I have never dyed my hair before so the next step would be to get a different style/cut done. All you hairstylists out there, what are your thoughts?

Also I thought it would be fun to share this image above. It's our white board which we use to help organize and layout events, tasks, etc. Michelle and I are very visual and we like to see our agenda in a color coded layout (I know, you're probably saying to yourself- wow they are super anal about things but that's how we work! Boy Meets Anal Girl...it keeps us in order! LOL!)
It's always so nice to see one big task be crossed out and then it's on to the next big event- February Fashion Week 2011! But of course I can't give away all those details yet...

These two images were taken while I was in Brazil over the holiday. I love this fountain. It reminded me of a wishing fountain..so I made a wish and some resolutions for the New Year to come :) Here's to a very Happy and Healthy New Year! I look forward to the adventures and new memories 2011 will bring for me and my brand Boy Meets Girl(R)!
Thank you to my whole team for being incredible to work with. As DJ NielleKat said today "I have never been so excited to come to work." This was after our recent snowstorm :) But, hey we must be doing something right as we truly love our craft and I want to continue to inspire all to love what they are doing everyday.

p.s. Thank you Dj Blue Steel(and new name DJ editor) for your amazing Belief in me over the course of this past decade in building a brand from scratch. I hope you read this post so you see my special shoutout :) Without your continuous shoulder to lean on and your ear to listen to me and your jokes to make me laugh...I would not be where I am today. Thank you.

The LIGHT captured in Brazil! Happy Holidays to all.

Boy Meets Isabella Blow Girl

December 16, 2010
While I was traveling in Europe this past September, I was invited to the book launch for Blow by Blow- written by Detmar Blow, in dedication to his late wife, Isabella Blow. It was such a privilege to be there among fashion influencers such as Anna Wintour who personally knew Issie.
For those who do not know, Isabella Blow was known throughout the fashion world for her unpredictable flair and outrageously stylish wardrobe. She also discovered Alexander McQueen and Philip Tracey. Check out the video below of the book launch below- and sorry it was filmed the wrong way(I was just getting a hang of my new droid)! But you can hear Issie's husband speaking about her which is amazing :)


Of course I bought my own copy of Blow by Blow :). I am loving it so far and still have a ways to go but I HIGHLY recommend it as a last minute holiday gift for your fashionista friend. Issie's story is one to know and I can't wait to finish it over the holidays!

Check out the images below from the event with my amazing friend Tara Smith. I have written about Tara in the past. Make sure to check her hair products out in Duane Reade in NYC store locations and on her website here.

Sammi Hanratty visits Boy Meets Girl® Eco-Friendly Cardboard Office!

December 15, 2010


Last week the adorable Sammi Hanratty stopped by our Boy Meets Girl® Eco-Friendly Cardboard Office to check out the space and of course try on some Boy Meets Girl® clothes ;)

I can't believe how grown up she is! The last time I saw her was about a year and a half ago when we teamed up and created shirts for the BullyBust.org campaign at Bloomingdale's. Check out this video footage of Sammi and I chatting about what she's been up to recently, her adorable horse Jack and other collaborations we hope to take on after the new year!



Sammi looked great in Boy Meets Girl® and was happy to model her new outfits for us! And of course everyone who stops by our office must make a wish in the cardboard wish-wall! I wonder what Sammi wished for ;)
