How did Stone Fox Bride come to be?

After I got engaged in 2010, I spent eight months planning my wedding  and discovered that all the wedding dress shops felt really fancy and sort of uptight. I couldn’t find a mellow boutique with a beautiful selection of high-fashion breathable bohemian dresses that felt true to my vibe. A few weeks after my wedding, I patched together a business plan, and SFB was born shortly after.

Are you a big believer in fate? If you’d come back to New York and found a dream  job your life may have been so different.

I believe that there is a plan much bigger and more meaningful than my teeny, ego-centered narrow mind can possibly fathom. When I am operating from a place of faith (not fear), I am able to show up for my life and let the magic unfold. Short answer: YES!

What is your most cherished possession?

My children. Predictable answer, but truer than true.

How has surrounding yourself with creativity been important to you?

Yes. Creativity is my religion. It’s my jam. I LIVE to be creative!!! BUT, I’ve learned that too much creativity is really not a good thing for me, unless it’s tempered by equal parts business savvy and practicality. I can get way too caught up in the clouds, very Piscean, and unless I’m forced into some sort of rigorous, rigid action, I will just float around dreaming and talking about my feelings forever. It’s all about discipline, baby!

Being an entrepreneur and mama can be really hectic, what’s your favorite way to make time for your gorgeous girls?

Weekends! We do lots of hanging in Brooklyn. Farmers markets, ferry rides, jumping in piles of pillows, reading on our patio, eating donuts, napping, laughing, cooking, chilling out. This past Saturday, my husband was out of town, and the girls and I had an epic “Little Mermaid” “Frozen” “Bambi” Disney movie marathon complete with cuddling and bags of green licorice. It was NOT a Waldorf moment, but it was definitely a good time.

How do you unwind?

I love hanging out with my hot husband Mike. We’re homebodies, so we do alot of lounging
and reading and movie watching and cooking. I’m also a big fan of hot baths, pilates, meditation and epic gossip sessions with girlfriends.

What are you the most proud of with Stone Fox Bride?

Making it happen. I have no background in business or fashion — am just a useless Liberal Arts major with a degree in Creative Writing who could never even get it together to balance a checkbook. Breathing life into the World Of The Foxy Lady has been amazing.

What do you do for yourself to feel centered and calm?

I believe in the power of gratitude, sorry to sound so Tony Robbins. I keep a daily gratitude list with a bunch of girlfriends where I can get in touch with all the small good things I have going on in my life — anything from having the perfect cup of coffee to my parents’ health, I can easily get all victim-y and whiney and blame my husband for ruining my life if I don’t constantly come back to the source. The truth is, I am lucky as shit.

We love your dreamy boho goddess vibe, has this always been apart of your style?

HA! I am flattered to be called a dreamy boho goddess, but most days feel like a grizzled middle-aged Marge Simpson.
Lately, my style icon is my three year old daughter Sunny — she has really been working her clothing mojo recently. This morning’s outfit included a pink piggie backpack, tiger t-shirt, purple tutu and sparkly hairbow.

What do you love most about what you do?

Truthfully, everything, Even though today, as I am writing this, I am beyond overwhelmed and feel completely incompetent.

How has motherhood changed you as person and as you see life and what you want to achieve?

Motherhood has forced me to do all sorts of things I could never do before, as small as getting up with my alarm clock, as epic as putting other people’s needs before my own. It’s been deep and wild and dreamy.

What do you want to teach your kids about life?

Endless optimism, eternal curiosity and belly laughter can get you through just about anything.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

Advice: I don’t give it, and I don’t take it. Rarely has anything good come from either.

There are endless possibilities and ways you can grow your brand how do you focus?

I don’t, that’s part of the problem. I constantly have a hundred things going on all times.

What’s on the horizon for you?

Finishing up the Stone Fox Bride book, learning how to roast the perfect chicken and working toward World Peace should get me through the end of 2015.
