Dream A Little Dream

As an educator and a former editor, now fashion blogger and stylist; I research and I dream and then I react.

When you have a vision and are building your empire, business will come. Well a girls gotta dream right? As an entrepreneur, it is all about when to take the next step and questioning what exactly that step should be. I can literally and pretty much do already live a life, gathering information through tweet chats, webinars, summits and online conferences. But I need to get out of my bunny slippers and pjs and away from my computer and start setting these power meetings up. If I want to make it big I need to start with a fabulous work space.

I started thinking about who I would want to have on my dream team and I have come up with quite an impressive list. First, I would have my advisory board which would include..

Mario Testino

A fashion photographer, who's work has been shown in Vogue and Vanity Fair. Princess Diana chose him to work on her 1997 Vanity Fair photoshoot.

Who wouldn't want Mario on their advisory board? He has taken the most beautiful photographs of the most influential fashion icons. Not only would I love to style for him, but if I'm going to fantasize I would also love to call him to shoot my Christmas card photo. 

Olivia Palermo

Olivia is an American Socialite and fashion blogger with an incredible eye for style.

Olivia would be on my team solely for the fact that I would want to see what she's wearing every single day. She always looks so fabulous. Maybe her cute hubby will come by once in a while to pick her up and I could take a selfie with him.

Gabrielle Bernstein

Gabby is a motivational speaker, author and mentor. She founded and is considered to be the guru of this generation.

I love Gabby's spirituality and would enjoy starting my day with a yoga class every morning. All my fellow entrepreneurs out there can fully understand how important it is to stay centered and focused.

Anna Wintour

Anna has been the editor-in-chief of Vogue since 1988. She has an eye for fashion trends and is supportive of young designers.

To rub elbows with Anna Wintour would be an honor. She was one of the first to come to mind, especially as my creative director. 

Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah is an actress, producer and shoe designer. She is well known for her part in Sex and the City.

Sarah is so cool and I would love to get some inspiration from her. Maybe I could even channel Carrie Bradshaw to write some blog posts.

Natalie MacNeil 

Natalie is an EMMY Award winning media entrepreneur who conquers the world.

 I would love to have Natalie by my side. She would be an excellent life coach and I would appreciate having her marketing expertise for my business. I recently enjoyed a 9 week conquer summit and I have gotten so much information out of it. I can’t even imagine if I had total access to this wealth of information.

If I was to pick my favorite designers to collaborate with for a clothing line here is who I would pick..

Hats: I would go to Maison Michel and hire Laetitia Crahay to produce my hat line.
Jewelry: I would pick Eddie Borgo because he is, as far as I'm concerned, one of the hottest new jewelry designers out there.

I would combine the designers from the following companies for the following reasons..

Bruno Cuccinolli - simple and luxurious
DVF - prints
 Missoni - knits
Chanel - classic Chanel 
The Kooples - edgy and fresh


Stuart Weitzman
Christian Louboutin
Rene Caovilla


Alexander Wang 

If only I could make this dream team a reality, we could build the biggest fashion empire anyone has ever seen!
