I spent the last few days in NYC, attending the Coterie show.  It was massive.  I spent most of the first day at French Connection and I went to Free People first thing Monday morning.  Their booth was fabulous.  I loved the display/seating area.  The larger booth size also made it a very comfortable work environment. 
Here is Lindsey, my favorite Free People fashionista.  She is the can also see more insider pictures of the Free People booth by clicking here.

This was an exciting week...our customers and Sweet Lady Jane backed an up and coming designer, Charlotte of Isobel & Cleo. Charlotte is a former employee that is one of 16 semi-finalists in the Charleston Fashion weekShe needed to raise the necessary funds to produce her line and get her to the show.  Our customers generously donated $720 and Sweet Lady Jane matched the donations! 

I would love to share some of her work but I don't want to give anything away!  I will post some of the work in progress, when it closer to the show (March 22-26th).  Knit your heart out Charlotte! xoxoxo

Miss Vermont USA

Our good friend and photographer, Brett Lupfer, introduced us to Lauren Carter, Miss Vermont USA, a few weeks ago.  She needed some pictures for her portfolio and borrowed some pieces from Sweet Lady Jane.  The day of the shoot, there was a huge snowstorm and I thought for sure that they would have called it off.  But like a true Vermont woman, she made it and this is one of the pictures from the shoot.  You would never know that a blizzard was happening outside.  

p.s. she is wearing all French Connection.
