CURATOR is founded on the principles of a 22 year friendship. When you’re in business with your best friend, there are many opportunities to showcase your love. When there is something unsavory to do (like firing someone or breaking up with a store) we often volunteer to spare the other person the grief. When someone doesn’t gel with one of us, they usually love the other one.
Which brings me to one of my favorite business friendship stories about Stacy…
There was once this dye house guy I couldn’t crack. He was a real tough nut and we basically couldn’t exist without him. Unfortunately, one day he stopped by our office unannounced, right after I had major morning sickness. He saw me laying down through the window and decided I was a lazy ass. He started pushing our projects to the side and prioritizing everyone over us. Every time I called him, he kept giving me a hard time about it – ‘If you weren’t sleeping all the time maybe this would be done.” I was up a wall trying to figure him out when suddenly Stacy grabbed the phone and started swearing at him. “Jim you gotta to stop giving my partner a fucking bad time about this.” A swear word every other word! I had my hands over my ears. I was waving my arms for her to stop….but she wouldn’t. Then POOF! Of course he became her new best friend. A couple four letter words and she worked it all out. Suddenly our samples started coming in EARLY and they had this special relationship that I got to stay out of! DOUBLE SCORE!

Our lovely and versatile Lola dress played a part in a very special wedding. Eleven shining bridesmaids rocked the dress. I can certainly feel the love from here.

My husband and I were driving around the other day and spotted a serious young thing walking around with long gray hair. He was perplexed and I was majorly intrigued. One thing is for certain we both cranked our necks to get another shot at this look. I like neck twister trends. One swoop around Pinterest and I got all up on the young going gray.
We love our girl Rachel. She brings to life all of our clothes and does it with a smile.
Here is your chance to get to know her a little better. She was recently interviewed on Refinery 29. Grab a glimpse into her sweet Bolinas cottage and sandal making studio, all the while hearing about how she spends her days.

“I especially hope to inspire young women because I often feel like so much emphasis is put on how beautiful you are and how thin you are, and not a lot of emphasis is put on what you can do and how smart you are. I’d like to change the emphasis of what’s important when looking at a woman.” —Margaret Kilgallen (via Art 21)
