A Dreamy Brunch Celebration in Los Angeles

By now you already know that we launched our first product collection earlier this week! I went back and forth about whether to do the launch party here in Austin or back in LA, but ultimately Los Angeles won out. When I thought about my blogging career, the transition years while I was blogging and styling, the dear friends that were my peers and mentors for the journey, most of those people are back on the west coast, the place where the blog began and where I spent the next five years as it grew and evolved.
