Happy happy International Women’s Day. I’m so, so proud to be a female owned and operated small business! For those of you who don’t already know, I currently have an incredible all-women bi-coastal team and I don’t know what I’d do without them. Here’s 3/7th of our team – photographed here are myself, Kate and Dani in San Francisco. Not pictured are Sam, Julia, Kelsey and Anne because they’re 2,771 miles away in Trumansburg, New York. Even though we operate in two separate states, we’ve managed to become quite a cohesive group and we’ve been able to achieve so much as a group.

I also intend on starting a customer spotlight series soon so please stay tuned for that. I meet so many unique women in the showroom or at events, and they inspire me to keep doing what I do. Each and every one of my customers is absolutely gorgeous, with a style that’s all her own. And that’s the LEAST interesting thing about her. If that’s not the biggest inspiration, I don’t know what is.

Know someone who’s inner beauty shines wildly bright? Someone who fearlessly pursues her dreams, crushes her goals and makes an impact on the lives around her? Let’s give her a shoutout. I’m all for being that woman who roots for the another woman, tells a stranger her style is amazing, and encourages others to believe in themselves and their dreams.

Here’s to you, strong women!

Tina’s a self-proclaimed tri-state gypsy. Jersey is home but Tina moved around with [...]

Introducing Kitty Minervini and Mat Hale… two Asbury locals who I can safely say were my first official friends here in town. I love when the Universe brings people together. This is certainly a story of just that. I met these two at Dwell on Design back in 2013 and randomly ran into them on the beach in Asbury [...]
