Insiders: Laura of Ascot Friday & Target Does It Again

I met Laura of Ascot Friday almost three years ago at the very first Blog Sugar, and got to know her a bit better when we planned the last Blog Sugar together. I helped Rachel and JJ put the whole shebang on, while Laura and her sister Erika did the decor and branding for the […]

Insiders – Lisa Rodman, PR Manager Neiman Marcus Topanga

A Peek Into Insiders: Behind the Lines

You can watch shows like Project Runway, It’s a Brad, Brad World and the Rachel Zoe Project, and walk away thinking “wow, people in the fashion industry really are completely bananas.”  But as we all know TV often sensationalizes every subject from the fashion industry to those extreme couponers.  When I was brainstorming content for […]
