Lives In: Brooklyn
About Me: Creative director of Stone Fox Bride. After I got engaged in 2010, I spent eight months planning my weddingand discovered that all the wedding dress shops felt really fancy and sort of uptight. I couldn’t find a mellow boutique with a beautiful selection of high-fashion breathable bohemian dresses that felt true to my vibe. A few weeks after my wedding, I patched together a business plan, and SFB was born shortly after.
I believe in the power of gratitude, sorry to sound so Tony Robbins. I keep a daily gratitude list with a bunch of girlfriends where I can get in touch with all the small good things I have going on in my life — anything from having the perfect cup of coffee to my parents’ health, I can easily get all victim-y and whiney and blame my husband for ruining my life if I don’t constantly come back to the source. The truth is, I am lucky as shit.
Inspiration: Lately, my style icon is my three year old daughter Sunny — she has really been working her clothing mojo recently. This morning’s outfit included a pink piggie backpack, tiger t-shirt, purple tutu and sparkly hairbow.
Favorite things to do with your girls: We do lots of hanging in Brooklyn. Farmers markets, ferry rides, jumping in piles of pillows, reading on our patio, eating donuts, napping, laughing, cooking, chilling out. This past Saturday, my husband was out of town, and the girls and I had an epic “Little Mermaid” “Frozen” “Bambi” Disney movie marathon complete with cuddling and bags of green licorice. It was NOT a Waldorf moment, but it was definitely a good time.
Words you live by/quotes you love: Advice: I don’t give it, and I don’t take it. Rarely has anything good come from either.
