For those of you wondering what the cover below reads it says...

”Self-Confidence never goes out of Fashion.”

International expansion has always been part of the plans for Boy Meets Girl. Working with colette in Paris since 2015 and meeting with all the Boy Meets Girl Parisian fans has been an unforgettable experience. This year (2017) I brought Justine Skye to Paris with me to launch the Boy Meets Girl x Care Bears x colette collection at the store. This expansion in Paris has led Boy Meets Girl into many directions, making our next stop to Finland #BoyMeetsGirlinFinland. I am so excited to celebrate this launch and will be traveling to Finland next week so make sure to follow along on @stacyigel and @boymeetsgirlusa instagram for immediate updates.

My team knows how I am on my shoots. I am often there with my style guide ensuring that every shot is checked off, every piece of clothing is in place, and that the model is taking the direction. For this shot, I was in front of the camera for the first time in awhile and it was so much fun. The positive energy and excitement on this shoot with the Finnish editorial team made the whole experience even better. Expanding into a place full of so many people embracing the Boy Meets Girl message is a dream come true.

They truly captured my life as a #mompreneur. We shot some of the images in the morning in the heart of the Garment District, then quickly made it to Central Park to meet my little Dylan Reid (@dylanreidigel) for his time in front of the camera, and then headed to Brooklyn for the final shots (the cover shot was one of the last shots of the day). It was so much fun to have my angel on the shoot with us.

It was a special day with an amazing crew that I will never forget. I cannot wait to celebrate this pivotal moment in my career internationally.  To read the full article click here.

Stay tuned, as there is always more to come!

Thank you for this incredible honor & to the incredible team who made the shoot day so special:



See you in FINLAND!




My time in Paris

“The first stop the fashion crowd would make was to Colette,” Robert Burke, founder of the luxury consultancy that bears his name, said in an email. “The selection of brands, the way the forms displayed, the cloths and the mix designers was inspiring. If you were carried at Colette, you were cool. If you had a launch of product or a book signing at Colette you were recognized by not only the fashion world but the international fashion consumer.”



A bus note to my Nieces and Nephew & a Giveaway...

I have watched you grow faster than speeding bullets.

 NYFW show with M&M 

I have been to every Bris, Baby naming, Birthday party , Graduation and more.
I even created fun Birthday parties for you Sami Jo every summer with Uncle Almost and whole family, because you have a summer birthday and wanted to spend it with us adults. I will miss those parties.

( blog post on Sami Jo Birthday bash turning 7
Oh and how can I forget helping Morgan with her fashion birthday party (I think when you turned 11 years old) where I put together a DIY event and brought my celebrity hair and makeup stylist friend and photographer from NYFW to give Morgan the real VIP treatment. I still owe Max some birthday party ideas. I think I will get there soon Max :)

Before I had Dylan Reid almost 3 years ago you were my everything and guess what you still ARE!
Watching you all take care of your baby cousin is so incredible. Each of you hold a special place in Dylan's heart and to this day I still call you my babies. I don’t think that will ever stop.



Today I said goodbye to you three as you are all going to summer camp tomorrow. This will be Sami’s first time going.  I asked Sami Jo to not grow too fast and to remember me when she gets back. She promised me she would.

My aunts (on both sides) made such an impact on my life. I miss them everyday. My Auntie Carol passed away on 7/12/14 a few months before Dylan was born and his Hebrew middle name is named after her . It is Chaim, which means life.

All three of you have enriched my life and your uncles, and now our son. To life. To living. To learning. To growing. To giving. To loving your aunts (hee hee) :) I love you guys. Have the best summer and don't grow too fast.

And thank you for finding Auntie's Day years ago for me founded by the amazing Melanie Notkin creator of Savvy Auntie. This year it falls on Sunday, July 23rd, 2017 so don't forget to write your Aunt :)
