Getting inspired by color in reviewing and designing our Spring/Summer 2013 line.  One of the best parts about designing is seeing development samples from the factory.  Well, it’s an adventure – sometimes it looks fantastic and other times it can look like nothing you thought it would.  I have learned a ton in the past year and being involved in all facets of the business as well as being financially responsible is stressful.  Each collection, each season we learn more and more and as I see our traffic and sales grow it is so rewarding.  I live the dream and do what I love.  Thank you for your continued support of my blog and my business, without your support I wouldn’t have both!

    Navy and pink go nicely together. It's great that you still can go bare-legged in Chicago. It's freezing where I live. Enjoy the rest of your week, Jen!

    You are so bold to be able to carry off bright pop of colours with a sequin bag! I would describe it as OTT, but actually, it isn't over the top at all and you really pull it off nicely! I love how you can wear anything. Great post and blog!Jenny xoxo – Please come and say hi here, would love to see you there x
