Transforming Your Closet Into a Chic Home Office | Design Girlfriend | Harper’s BAZAAR


I’m Alia and this is Jamie. We have been dating for a year and a month. and I just moved to Simsbury, Connecticut a month ago. A month ago? Two months ago? Three months ago. So I wrapped up my whole studio apartment in new york had it moved up here and when you really break down what you own and you see it all in like fifteen boxes being wrapped up in one small truck you’re like, “huh.” I wanted her to be comfortable, this is a big change. I was more nervous about how I could make her happy than really whether or not she would fit in. He challenges me he makes me think about things really differently but once I think about it his ideas are really interesting and valid and when we do it together, we are better together. I think I’d like to take the upstairs empty bedroom and turn it into an office for you. So it’s a little bit of a fantastic catastrophe. I think I can transition that closet where you’re keeping some of your miscellaneous clothes to kind of a work station office area. For an office, it’s gonna be awesome. I want her to feel like she’s got a really special place. Again, more nervous face. I let you do the formal living room. I am surprised but sometimes it’s a very different type of surprised than I imagined. I was thinking, we create a little bit more space. but we could maybe put a desk some shelves, maybe a really cool light. But maybe it’s more of like a nook. We could do like a desk that comes out a little bit. Would you be cool if we took the doors off? I definitely want to take the doors off. The rail, the shelf will obviously come out. What if we do wallpaper? We are definitely keeping the wall paper people here in Simsbury, Connecticut in business. In fashion and design we call that idea a Feature Focus. That point in the room or that point in the outfit where your eye goes first. So I feel like if we do a really cool metallic wallpaper your eye will be automatically drawn to the office. I’m excited about this, this is gonna be awesome. Let’s do it. There we go. That’s impressive. In order to take the last bolt out of the door usually you need an extra hand. I need you to hold this door for me. Ooh, a little snug. Are you kidding me? Babe, this is my new look. We’ve got a clean palette here. I’m gonna have a guy, Joe he’s awesome, install the wallpaper and then I have an awesome chandelier coming. You’re gonna love it. Does that mean I get to get back to work? You’re dismissed. Perfect. So one of the most important parts of a modern office today is inspiration I really want to be able to look up and see something creative that inspires me. I call this project, your live mood board. I took a queue from the wallpaper and I actually got the same wallpaper but in a larger scale to create my mood board which I am going to use clipboards for and the plan is to wallpaper them in the same wallpaper pattern as what’s going to be behind them so in essence they become part of that wall and you can clip things to them that really represent what’s inspiring you in the moment. So what we’re going to do is literally just trace the clipboard. Take your exacto knife and make that nice clean line. Then we actually need to cut out a little piece to account for the top so we’ll just trace that. When you clip it in, you’ll see that it fits perfectly. and we’re just gonna glue it down and use a little double stick tape. Just like that. and a girls best friend in making sure that your wallpapered clipboard stays sticking to the clipboard is a big book to put on top for about an hour. Just let it sit. And then we’ll hang them. Okay, let’s check on the progress. So it’s been about an hour. I love it, look how cute this looks. This is gonna look great. Wallpaper can be really tricky to install. My strategy when thinking about how I’m gonna put this closet together. was to use what I call the investment strategy. In fashion, it’s sort of that same idea as wearing a t-shirt and jeans but really expensive shoes and investing in a hand bag right? Because that’s where you eye goes, that’s what you notice. I gave the measurements of this closet to Calico and they created a custom piece of wall paper for this entire closet. So I’m putting into the hands of a professional. This is my guy and I’m really excited to see what this looks like. I like to design every room with one dramatic element that really draws you in. in this case its calico wallpaper. They’re one of my favorite brands because they design beautiful wallpaper to look like artwork so it really defines the space. I am going to put together a really cool storage solution. A book spine basket It’s gonna look like a shelf of books when we’re done. I got this basket at home goods. I think I spent $4.99. The books, a set of 24 vintage encyclopedias got on ebay for fourteen dollars. I’m gonna measure the basket on the cardboard and just mark it off. I’m gonna cut the cardboard and I’m gonna affix it to the basket first and the easiest way to do that is good old fashion zip ties. Make a little hole and put the zip tie through. Make sure it’s lines up so once you have it zip tied put that aside and we are going to cut the books. So you take your exacto knife and I’m just gonna cut the spine. Keep one side on the left and one side on the right. So from the side, it looks like their’s still a book. and in the middle, we’re just going to keep these spines. Good old fashioned fabric glue goes a very long way and you could be generous with it. Once you have all of your spines You’re literally just going to line them up. Once you have all of your book spines lines up you can turn it right side up like it did. It needs about 20 minutes to dry to make sure that the spines are actually affixed to the cardboard. when I think about creating design solutions, I really want them to look elevated. That is number one for me. If it looks like a hack, it is a hack. If someone saw this and was surprised by it I did my job. Going out on the town today I’m thinking maybe some coffee table books, a few objects. Just things that have some personality i think really are going to bring that space to life. I’m at Beehive Home It’s a really cool home decor store and one of my favorite spots in town. I’m here to get some ideas for the closet and I’m already seeing some pretty awesome inspiration Wow, having a great oversized chandelier really makes a small space feel bigger. A lot of people think you have to match the scale of the room to the fixtures but I love a bang fixture or something that just jumps out at you and makes the space pop. It’s not the office stuff that really makes the office it’s the untraditional pieces that you find that surprise and delight that really make it come to life. I think you’re coming with me actually. So this is a desk from CB2. It is marble top, so it is quite heavy and I’ve never actually seen it in person I’ve just seen it online. Let’s get this box open. I love it. What we’re gonna do is we’re gonna bring it upstair to the room because we won’t be able to fit it through the door. This is gorg. These tones surprisingly just work really really well together and it has this really amazing textural, high gloss feeling. It looks great. I am obsessed. Obsessed with this wallpaper. So this is my favorite part. I am going to decorate the shelves. So what should we put on them? Is it a stack of books? Or is it a clever storage idea>A little bit of both. Where do you live? This is so awesome. I love it. I might live here now Let’s put the books in the tray. You’re like the style boss babe. Jamie, I’m impressed. What is this? The cherry on top. Thank you for this. It’s awesome, I love it for you. It’s awesome.

The Rise And Fall Of Juicy Couture


Irene Kim: Juicy Couture
was an iconic part of early 2000s fashion. Its velour tracksuits and
matching oversized bags were everything and everywhere. But Juicy went from making
$605 million in sales at its peak in 2008 to being sold for less
than a third of that five years later. So, what happened? Juicy’s story begins
with these two ladies, Gela Nash-Taylor and Pamela Skaist-Levy. They met while working at a
Los Angeles boutique in 1988. When Nash-Taylor became pregnant, she couldn’t find any
fashionable maternity clothing. As a solution, she started
making maternity pants out of her husband’s
jeans, which inspired her and Skaist-Levy to start
a maternity clothing line, Travis Jeans for the Baby in You. The pair’s stylish
maternity jeans took off, despite their $89 price tag. By the early 1990s, it expanded into a full maternity line. But around 1994, after feeling like they lost touch with the maternity market, the pair decided to
pivot to something new: developing the perfect
luxury V-neck shirt. Nash-Taylor and Skaist-Levy
focused on four things: fit, fabric, comfort, and color. They both tried on their samples to make sure the V-neck covered
the right part of the arm, didn’t plunge too deep, and, overall, made your body
look as good as possible, things male designers fitting
T-shirts on size 0 models maybe weren’t taking into consideration. After perfecting their design, they released it in 26 colors under their new label, Juicy Couture. When Juicy first started in 1995, the economy was beginning to recover from the 1990 to 1991 recession, and consumers were hungry for expensive, or at least expensive-sounding, products. So Nash-Taylor and Skaist-Levy wanted the brand name to convey luxury. They also loved the irony of naming their casual T-shirt line “couture.” Juicy Couture quickly grew in popularity and expanded to include knit tops, accessories, and a
successful Juicy Jeans line. But it wasn’t the
full-fledged lifestyle brand its founders wanted it to be…yet. Nash-Taylor and Skaist-Levy
looked to the brands they grew up with during
the ’60s and ’70s for ideas. Both thought terry cloth was “the most amazing 1970s fabric” and came up with a line of
tops and bottoms made from it. The silhouette of what would become Juicy’s signature tracksuit was created with the same purpose as
the original Juicy V-neck: to be as flattering as possible. The zip-up hoodie was
designed with front pockets to hide any stomach pooch and cut with an hourglass
shape to nip in your waist. Nash-Taylor and Skaist-Levy
also added custom hardware: a J-pull zipper that
branded every tracksuit as uniquely Juicy Couture. The tracksuit bottoms were originally made with an underwear elastic, but when that proved to be too loose, Juicy’s founders switched to a quick cord they’d used for their maternity line. It worked perfectly. Juicy Couture released its
now iconic tracksuits in 2001, and they became a phenomenon. Not to mention, at $155, Juicy Couture’s tracksuits weren’t cheap, but they were accessible. Julia DiNardo: The price
point was a little bit high for essentially a glorified sweatshirt, but with a little bit of midriff
showing, the cool bootleg, and seeing celebrities in
some oversized sunglasses wearing it out and about, it kind of met that balance of just-within-reach pricing and somewhat of a luxury
item pooled into one. Kim: And it was seeing
celebrities wear Juicy Couture that really drove the brand’s success. Around the time Juicy Couture launched, tabloid celebrities like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan were
becoming a national obsession. Tabloids like Us Weekly and People were documenting everything America’s favorite stars were doing, and Juicy was able to
take advantage of it. Because its founders didn’t have the funds for traditional marketing,
they got creative, gifting tracksuits to celebrities. While this is pretty
common today, Skaist-Levy and Nash-Taylor were one
of the first to do it. They didn’t find success
overnight, but eventually Juicy’s tracksuits were being seen on all the right celebrities. DiNardo: The attraction
to celebrity culture in the early 2000s is
really what contributed Juicy to become such a popular brand. It really was the height of: “Celebrities! They’re just like us.” Seeing Britney Spears go get
a cup of coffee at Starbucks in her Juicy Couture
tracksuits, seeing Paris Hilton shopping all over town in
her Juicy Couture tracksuit. Kim: Juicy’s founders
even kept a photo wall of every celebrity who
wore their tracksuit. Soon, Juicy Couture was exclusively sold at upscale department stores like Bergdorf Goodman
and Saks Fifth Avenue. In 2003, Juicy Couture was
purchased by Liz Claiborne, now known as Kate Spade & Company, for $226 million to be paid over a five-year period. Juicy was colorful, fun, and covered in logos
during a time when people couldn’t get enough of
showing off the brands they were buying and wearing. DiNardo: It wouldn’t be a Juicy product without the Juicy label or
insignia or logo of some kind. Skaist-Levy: It makes people happy. Nash-Taylor: Juicy, it
is, it’s a happy brand. People love it. Kim: Net sales nearly
doubled from 2006 to 2007. By 2008, Juicy Couture had 100 stores generating a total of
$605 million in sales. The brand also expanded to include jewelry and a successful fragrance
line with Elizabeth Arden. But then the recession hit. While most brands struggled
following the recession, Juicy Couture’s flashy branding particularly stopped
resonating with customers. DiNardo: So, during the 2008 recession, fashion was at a point where the “it” bag was really not an “it” thing anymore. It felt a little bit too
gregarious, over the top, and proud in the wrong way,
so things started to recede; not that people weren’t shopping, but they weren’t buying
things that were so blatant as to what they were
and how much they cost. Kim: The recession inspired a movement towards minimalism, which was pretty much the opposite of what
Juicy Couture embodied. DiNardo: Juicy as a label was all about that flashiness and that fun. And so, there was a somberness
to fashion, a seriousness, after 2008, and it really
wasn’t on-brand for Juicy. Kim: Sales fell 11%
year-over-year in 2009. In 2010, founders Skaist-Levy and Nash-Taylor left the company, citing a loss of ability
to help their brand evolve. Sale numbers continued to drop
as Juicy failed to keep up with the growing
contemporary fashion market. While labels like Alexander Wang and Theory quickly pivoted to add more pieces to their
collections, Juicy didn’t. In 2013, Juicy Couture was officially sold to Authentic Brands
Group for $195 million. The company has an eclectic portfolio, including the licensing
rights for the estates of Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe. The group announced plans to close all of Juicy Couture’s US stores but said it would reopen five to 10 as it rebuilds the brand. ABG later made a deal with
discount retailer Kohl’s to sell Juicy-branded products,
effectively abandoning the brand’s veneer of
luxury for many loyal fans. Despite its fall from department
store to discount bin, Juicy Couture has been angling
for a comeback for years. A 2016 collaboration with
cult fashion brand Vetements re-sparked interested and
lent Juicy some street cred. Kylie Jenner even posted a picture wearing a pricey tracksuit
from the collection. In 2017, Juicy Couture
appointed Hollywood stylist Jamie Mizrahi as its
new creative director. The brand debuted its new collection with a New York Fashion Week party with OG Juicy Couture lover and living brand embodiment Paris Hilton. Pieces from the collection were available on Juicy’s website, as well as Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s, with prices
ranging from $30 to $400. This marked an upscale pivot for the brand after being sold at Kohl’s since 2014. In 2018, Juicy Couture
released its first-ever runway collection to show pieces from its main contemporary
line, Juicy Couture Black Label. It also released two new
cosmetic collections, which have been met with
varying degrees of excitement. As for whether we’ll be seeing Juicy’s tracksuit everywhere again: DiNardo: I think they could capitalize on those customers that
were in their teens or late teens when the brand was popular. Now those women are moms, and they want something
comfortable but pulled together. It’s quite possible that the
tracksuit could be that item. Kim: Plus, Juicy Couture
could fit right into the athleisure market that’s continuing to dominate the fashion industry. And with so many other
early 2000s fashion trends coming back, who knows? 2020 could be Juicy Couture’s year.

WORK MODE ตอน คนขยันไม่มีวันอดตาย..มีแต่เหนื่อยตาย! (ENGsub)😅😪🤤


Hello I’m taking you guys on my production day You’ll see with me all day long This is one of my production day We’ve been preparing for this production for the past 2 months From designers, processing, drafting After all other adjustment and fittings We finally reach the day where we can present our designs They will be worn by selected models It’s ready to be debut There was a comment on my channel Why I don’t really open my mouth when I’m talking? They couldn’t see my teeth while I’m speaking I’m going to try and talk in a way that you can see my teeth clearly It’s actually not comfortable I felt like I’m consistently smiling, like this So I will just you this for you guys At least you can see my beautiful teeth So I just spoken to friend on why my teeth is less visible Whether that’s strange ? I think it might be because my teeth are very small To make sure me teeth are visible, I have to force it Like this So yes, I have to force my on lips People the fact that they can’t see my teeth, I look unnatural when speaking So if I really have to show I teeth like this Does this look natural to you? We are here at our setting for the shoot It is a hotel Situate in Sukumvit 48 So this is the outside There are 6 rooms here Mostly foreigner will stay here It’s very rare that you can use their space for productions As they do not want to disturb their guests So we are lucky to have this location for today I do know the owner of this hotel, so there was a little shortcut I’ve limited staffs with me today, around 14 people I tried to cut people so we have the abslute minimum of people at the hotel As do not want to disturb their hotel guests We have so few of staffs today, only 14 people My usual menu Mocha with soya milk, without whipping cream I’ll be a little hyper after this drink Don’t wanna speak, my throat is a little sore We are done We brought this ourself (Let’s go home, we are done with this job) tips for productions, this is a really good tool to carry with you The models doesn’t need to find WC to get change So the shoots are done but my day doesn’t end here I will have something to eat first, then I will check up my flagship store Today is the day where the dresses will go up to their rails Tomorrow will be the first opening day, not a grand opening though it is unofficial at the moment After work, we are here to eat Sukumvit 71 This is all their original menu my favourite will be this one This is a crackers dish It’s a really nice dish to fried red onions in it This is a rare dish, not many places do them Not all Vietnamese restaurant has this cracker dish There might be some crackers, the white one, but not the original But this though, I the original of why it is called that way We will wait and see the food I’m really tired today I may not show it much but it does feel like my soul is gone I lack of sleep too I just wanted to talk about the job If you ever wanted to own a brand There are lot of processes into doing each of the designs mostly, people will see only when it is finished Or when it is already on the model Before it reaches this point It took us around 2 months for the recent collection Firstly, Flat2112 has 3 design teams I will brief them into the theme of the collection I will inform when the propose date when the collection will launch They will create mood board for me There will be choices and the different elements When is the sketching process Usually takes around 2 weeks I will then have to decide whether the sketches are ok or need to be alter Because I always have to match them to my target audience The designs needs to still present the brand, they should present out brand personality Next is creating the instruction for pattern maker Pattern maker will be instructed into how to do them Next is pattern making process While that’s happening Designer will be sourcing the material to make these outfits They have to identity with part using which fabric I would see tiny pieces sample of each fabrics The problem with that You can’t visualise how it will be in full size You cannot see how this small fabric will turn into in their full form Some fabric looks nice in tiny pieces but as we put them into the actual design it is not ok So we will have to go back to choose them again Another example is the weight If you have a flare design and the fabric is too light It will look soggy and not aesthetically pleasing after finishing the pattern work Do will draft our samples one with calico and another with the real fabrics the person who’s doing these sample are different team to the pattern maker they will need different skills pattern maker are the person to make the drawings instruction the sample makers will be skilled in clothing construction there are lots obstacles in between sometimes patterns are not an exact match to the sketches Or the sample maker has not done as instructed by the pattern maker There always areas where different pieces fitted wrongly But some will be all correct and nothing wrong After the samples are done They will be sent to the office for fitting I do the fitting myself I will need to make sure the person to wears them will look good and proportional It will need to fit into my customer criteria They will need to look good on our customers Or some how embrace their personality While fitting I will always have the designer with me So we can check together on any alterations Usually, there’re always alteration, rarely that it will be successful the first time After that I’m already tired only talking bout it They will do the alteration from my fitting first Little things like needed less of this tighten that area or too much pleats and too flare or removing this and that Does this look proportional Sometimes details that we have doesn’t look as nice as we thought The alternation will need to go back to where it start We would start again we have comment slips, will be sent along with the samples The pattern maker to need to make adjustment to the design The pattern and the comment slips will be sent to the sample maker And they will follow that accordingly Some sample can be adjusted right away mostly that will be on length other than that will need to be altered from the pattern maker pattern need to be correct and the production will rely of the patterns The items will be sent to the office If the fitting is all ok it will go to the production However, if it’s not ok then we restart that again There are lot of expenses to be forwarding sampling backwards and forwards After that, seems like it’s the end right? no it is not the end You’ll need to do the size grading Pattern maker will need to identify the sizes When the design goes to the production, we will need to choose the linings for them too I will need to deal with the production team after that The sizes will always need to fit into the brand and consumers criteria I’ld to quit this job as as talk about it Please look after my business for me If you are studying fashion designs you might already know this Maybe more about the design process but this is the whole production process Sourcing material require lots of calculations They need to calculate the fabrics to each dress and how much Pattern maker will list how much of each material per design You will need to be a mathematician to be able to calculate those there will be spreadsheet to calculate how much of each material and elements need to produce so and so numbers of items Thing doesn’t always work out though So fabrics are sold out and unable to reproduce it because some fabrics cannot be source again Especially ones that consists of many types of material together If we can’t source them, the items will be discountitnue The selling price is really low too I get very little profit from each design Because each shoot cost me over hundred thousand baht as you can see each shoo this many staffs attending especially the one that I go aboard we try to make profit by selling in large quantities I may look like I have luxury life by having holiday aboard etc. please don’t be jealous it isn’t as easy and luxurious as it looks If you wanted a good life, you’ll need to work hard for it On youtube is only 10% of it 90% is what you see today that’s just my perpective In case you wanted to own a brand for yourself The dresses looks really good it does take many processes to reach that point Next stop, we will head to my flagship store Currently, in the renovation process opposite Paragon mall this is the pathway that connect Paragon to Siam Square One as you walk across you will find an escalator keep walking straight, left side it HP retail shop Here we are at Flat2112 It is still under construction Hey, I just got home I didn’t film inside the store because it is not finish a lot of details are not correct to the design The contractor hasn’t done it correctly to the design yet All of them, the fitting room, railings and shelves So I missed them out for today I’m so tired They only just finished it So the store is a little dusty in places I’m disappointed as the contractor has not done what the designer has intructed So we have to change it But there no time to change, it is the deadline when we should open the store We can’t afford to keep the store shut for more than this each day that the store close, the cost for rent is still the same The rent will cost me more an more each day cost around 7000 baht So when the store finishes we can then think about the grand opening do some invites etc I don’t want to promote my shop right now because nothing is finish So I shall end this vlog today I am so exhausted

How New Balance Sneakers Are Made | The Making Of


Fabiana Buontempo: What
do tennis star Coco Gauff, NBA MVP Kawhi Leonard, and Liverpool soccer great
Sadio Mané have in common? They all wear New Balances on
the court and on the field. You don’t have
to be a sneakerhead to know that New Balances weren’t always
considered the “cool shoe.” But somehow, despite
steep competition, New Balance has
entered the conversation. Reportedly, from 2010 to 2018, sales jumped by more than
100%, at a time when athleisure was making the biggest
dent in the shoe market. So why are athletes
across the sports spectrum flocking to New Balance now? The answer lies in the shoes’ soles and the attention to detail
in their manufacturing. I traveled to New Balance’s
Lawrence, Massachusetts, facility to learn what
goes into the process. Manny Gomes, the mechanic
supervisor at the facility, showed me the precision that goes into making the sneakers here. Making a New Balance sneaker
takes 50 to 60 steps, and work is divided
into four stations: the prep station, initial stitching, hand-stitching, and
the assembly station. It’s at the fourth station
where the soles get attached to the rest of the shoe, and
it’s something New Balance has been working on
since the beginning. The company started in 1906
by selling arch supports, which became so
popular among athletes that they asked for sneakers
tailored to their feet. But the company wouldn’t release
its first pair of sneakers until years later. When it did start
selling sneakers, New Balance mostly chose not to rely on celebrity endorsements, as the brand wanted its
sneaker to speak for itself. It went so far as to make its
mantra “Endorsed by No One,” all the while improving the sole and the shoe’s overall comfort. But before the sole is ever added, the work begins at the first station. This is where fabrics are cut into different parts of the shoe. So, how exactly does the
machine for the cutting work? Manny Gomes: This
is the vamp die; it’s gonna cut off the
vamp of the shoe. What the cutter’s gonna do
is they’re going to place it on this webbed material.
They’re going to cut it. They’re gonna flip it
around so they can just try to get their
spacing as tight as possible and work their way down. Fabiana: This station
is where small but mighty details of
the shoe come together, such as sticking on
sizing and model labels. Next is the
initial-stitching station. During this step,
workers use a technique called flat stitching,
which is crucial to making the shoes long-lasting. Individual stitches are
made without crossing or looping the thread. They use this stitching technique because flat stitching
doesn’t leave any raw edges but creates a durable
double row of stitching. This is important because
this is the body of the shoe, where most of the
wear and tear happens. Here, the employee takes
the cut-out pieces of fabric and places them onto
large yellow pallets. They line up the pieces and
close the yellow pallet’s lid to begin the stitching. Once stitching is complete
on a part of the shoe, an employee will send that
part down the assembly line. The famous N gets stitched
onto the shoe during this step. Now it’s time for the
hand-stitching part of the process. The upper portion of the shoe
is almost done at this point. But why hand-stitch in this phase? Turns out, the stitching
in this station is more intricate and requires
the guidance of a human hand. Manny: Stitching is
very complicated. Sometimes we’ll have
a skipped stitch, and what happens is
the operator will stop, give it to the team leader,
team leader will give it to the repair person, they’ll
fix that skipped stitch, put it back in process,
and continue. Fabiana: The final step
is assembling and finishing the sneakers. First, the upper is
pulled onto a shoe last, which performs the job
of a foot in a shoe, and that gives it its final shape. The upper and the sole are
then heated in a little tunnel. From there, they go
into a press machine, which permanently bonds
the two parts together. Speaking of the sole, it’s something of an
engineering marvel. Traditional soles can be
narrow and unsupportive, leading to all kinds
of foot problems, like plantar fasciitis. And if they can’t hold up
to the rigors of a sport, it can be a nightmare
for a sneaker brand. New Balance widens the toe box. That extra room helps
the foot be more stable. Plus, New Balance gives its
sneakers a thick midsole, making them more comfortable
and shock-absorbent. But it’s not one-size-fits-all
when it comes to the soles. The numbers in each New
Balance sneaker name indicate what type of
activity the shoe is for and the type of support it offers. For example, if the
name has a 40 in it, like the New Balance
940 or 1540 shoes, it’s designed to
offer control, stability, and cushioning
perfect for running. Different numbers
mean a different sole. To finish the process, the New Balance sneaker
gets a final inspection, and if all is well, it’s
packed up in its box, soon making its way to a store. Other shoe brands may
still have the upper hand in terms of sales
and cultural cachet, but there’s no doubt that
more athletes and customers are taking notice of New Balance.

My Back Pain Inspired My Backpack Business | My Shopify Business Story


a After years of being and consulting
carrying a very heavy shoulder bag I experienced a lot of excruciating pain
and that was a wake-up call for me. My name is Phuong and I’m the founder of P. Mai we make stylish and functional work bags for women so that women don’t have
to sacrifice style for comfort. So I started off as an analyst in
management consulting — you’re working very late hours and you’re often
traveling Monday through Thursday living out of a suitcase. At a certain point I
realized I was less interested in solving the problems of other people or
other companies and more interested in solving a personal problem that I felt. I
always knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur ever since I was a kid and
it was a matter of okay what’s gonna be that problem that I want to solve and I
didn’t know that until I had this doctor conversation who identified that I had
misaligned my own collarbone as a result of wearing a bag on one shoulder and so
I wanted to create a solution that was able to combine both form and function
so that women didn’t have to make that choice. So that’s when I started talking
to more women, throw into like research the industry started to sketch some
things on my own. Walking away from a stable, cushy career was a little
nerve-wracking at first but I remember after launching my Kickstarter campaign
that was a really exciting time. Dollars rolling in week by week suddenly it was
something much more tangible you’re getting a lot of money for this, there are
people who want to buy your product this could be something! And so I decided to
take that leap and start a company where I was kind of the patient zero. The
beautiful thing about having an e-commerce business is that you can work
from anywhere and I always had a desire to live abroad. In Berlin I love the fact
that you have a lot of creative people here and at the same time you don’t have
the same pressures and you might have in Silicon Valley,
you can build a business organically and sustainably here which is something I
really enjoy. My own creative side has been able to blossom a little more since
since being here. I feel now I cry prioritize those things because I realize how
having these creative outlets make me more calm and allow me to then focus on
what I need to get done for my business. Before I became an entrepreneur I felt
like my time wasn’t my own that doesn’t necessary time to make the decision of
where and when and how I want to work that’s something that I find priceless. you

Choosing My Wedding Dress


Hello Friends and welcome to another video. Today, I’m gonna be shopping for my wedding dress. No, this one isn’t from Wish. Surprisingly. So as some of you guys might already know, Tyler and I are engaged, betrothed, affianced… And since January, we have been planning our wedding, which has been going pretty well overall. We have a great wedding planner who sends me emails probably like once an hour, We have our date and our venue and our photo booth. It seems like a low-priority thing to have booked so early, but I booked it and I’m jazzed. Now one of the things you have to think about when you’re planning a wedding is what the heck you’re gonna wear. It’s definitely an early foot that needs to drop, partially because with a lot of wedding dresses, you’re supposed to order them like four to six months in advance, and also because the dress choice can influence the decor, what other people are gonna wear, like, how you’re gonna do your hair, your shoes – Everything! So even though our wedding is later this year, we’re buying the dress now. And since I’ve been an avid watcher of Say Yes to the Dress since its inception in 2007, I thought it would be fun to film the dress selection process, and produce our own episode of – well not Say Yes to the Dress – because I don’t think we can legally call it that, but you know, Choosing My Wedding Dress™. We haven’t actually trademarked that but, let’s do this anyway. So as for exactly what I’m looking for, I have a few thoughts. Like many people (I hope), I have been pinning wedding dresses that I thought were cool to a Private Pinterest board for years, like since way before I even met Tyler. So between that and a steady consumption of wedding content over the years, I feel like I’ve seen a fair amount of wedding dresses in my time. And based on all of that, I kind of know what styles I’m interested in. In terms of skirts, I don’t think I want a super poofy ball gown, but I also don’t think I want something super tight, just because I want to be able to move and groove and also eat. So something kind of loose or A-line would be ideal. In terms of tops, I’m more open to different things. I’m definitely partial to long sleeves, but I don’t want to be too close-minded to other kinds of sleeves outright. For additional context, the like,10,000 foot description of our wedding is like a blend of whimsical and exposed brick, so we’ll definitely be keeping that in mind while shopping. Now in terms of color. I know there has been some demand for me to wear a black wedding dress, because of my generally dark wardrobe. But I’m not sure I want a black dress. I don’t need to wear like pure white, like, I’m open to a beige or perhaps a light gray or something, but based on what I’ve seen, there are just more options for wedding dresses that I like in lighter colors. And aside from that, I feel like my wedding is the only time I would really ever wear a white dress, so I kind of want to go for it. I am interested in what I’ve been calling a Black Swan moment, where I change into a black reception dress, but that’s not what we’re gonna be shopping for this time around. So with all of that in mind, my next step was to find a place that sells dresses for me to try on. Now after getting engaged, I pretty much immediately started looking for wedding venues and wedding dress boutiques in the LA area, and one store that immediately caught my eye Was LOHO BRIDE, short for League Of Her Own, which is a relatively new boutique that stocks dresses from a lot of unique designers. I’m not sure they would say this but I find a lot of their dresses to be kind of alternative and Definitely up my alley and after stocking their Instagram and the instagrams of a few of their future designers I knew that I really wanted to go in and try on some of their dresses and Thankfully after reaching out Christy bared The owner said that we could come into their la store check out what they’ve got and film our selection process there Hi, I’m Christy. I’m the owner of lo ho bride we’re a store that specializes in hard-to-find designers that aren’t overly saturated and we’re excited to have you in today now for our visit to Lo ho I wanted to bring an on Raaj to give me some additional Perspectives and opinions and also because I think that’s just part of what you do with weddings. Oh Like bring people to look at you. Yeah, right Cheers So I was able to round up three of my five Bridesmaids to attend our dress trying on session all of whom are my close friends from college. Hi. I’m zippy I’m Sophie hi, I’m Caitlin and we are the three out of five bridesmaids I feel like if there are three people in the world who have blackmail material on me It’s probably them but it’s fine. If it’s fine. I just pump them full of champagne. It’s fine So hopefully in addition to exposing me they can also help me figure out what I should be wearing on the big day I think like Birkenstocks for sure We should find like bridal Birkenstocks, it’s a little veil over the Also an additional side note as a fourth member of the entourage Tyler will also be in attendance for my wedding dress shopping I know that’s not a very traditional choice But I really wanted him to be there not because I felt like I needed his approval on the dress that I chose But more because it’s kind of difficult to both film a video and also actually shop for your dress at the same time So it would make the experience a lot less hectic if Tyler was there to help film on set We’re also editing this video together. So there’s really no way around it. I’m not really Superstitious though. I am a little stitches especially about ghosts, but I’m okay with this one So with Tyler’s presence acknowledged it was time to pick out some dresses to try on now at the boutique They have like one room. That’s teeming. Yes teeming seems like the right word teeming with dresses We like for a bride to do a first pass through hami what you’re instantly excited about and then we’ll throw in some wild cards So go ahead and start Cruising the gallery and we’ll go from there. And even though I had done more than my fair share of insta stalking I was a little overwhelmed by seeing all of the dresses in person. What do I do? Like there’s a lot of dresses. You’re asking me. Yeah Now one thing that was important to me was to try on a full range of different styles just because I wanted to make sure That I was making as informed of a decision as possible. This one’s kind of cool. Look at that It’s quite floral, which is not usually my vibe But I do like it when like the sort of design kind of like flows to like beyond the bodice Oh my God, look at this train Okay, I said it wasn’t my style but then it had a giant train which is basically a cape but for your butt I definitely Wanted to make sure that I didn’t try on Too many dresses because people tend to advise against that but I did choose out a few dresses that caught my eye That weren’t exactly what I expected myself to pick. Oh, this one’s kind of cool. Look at this tie. Oh, it’s kind of a little Fluffy at the bottom. The thing is is like I’m not like married to the idea married Married to the idea of having a like super white wedding dress. So this nude is kind of cool I kind of like the nude and like the Okay, let’s know about him I did find some of the unique looking dresses I had seen online though Oh my god, you guys. Is that a cape? It’s like a slender man, but a bridal dress Interesting. Yes This is kind of like our why project like four foot long sleeve denim jacket, but a dress Is there like an opening in it? Like where does it open? It’s like a carry arms Caitlyn’s confused Like how do you dance or how do you like you don’t? In addition to our Squidward Ian dress. I also found a shorter, but still long sleeved option I wanted to try this looks like the dress I’m wearing right now, but just It’s a little simple but at the same time like it looks like me kind of you know dinging Yeah, besides that the bridesmaids also picked out a dress for me to try. I like this one I think it’s definitely worth the try. It is quite heavy My arm is getting tired, but I would like to try it on once again. It’s kind of like that nude color You’re gonna mean yeah send nudes, but it’s just me They made me try on like Wonder Woman head circling thing to wait zippy. Was that the one we were picking? What’s happening, but that didn’t make it into the dressing room Christie also pulled a dress for me to try on so this is a little different from what we’ve been trying but I thought it Could be interesting Oh, it has all the pearls on there and it can be off the shoulder or it could be a spaghetti strap It could be a fun little wild card for you. Yeah, no, let’s try it. Let’s start in the mix I’m open and so with that we had six options to start with. Hi. Are you gonna pick out a dress me? Oh, I think that’s too many roles broken Now I will say that when I was first scouting dresses on Lajos Instagram I did find a couple that I really loved in fact in our wish wedding dress video I referenced them when I was talking about like dresses that I was interested in but unfortunately they didn’t seem to have them in store when we went in to do our Tryon but they were still kind of in the back of my mind Particularly this one but I really liked all of the six dresses We have picked out and I feel like they had some of the elements of the dresses that I had stopped online So I was very excited to try them on. Okay, I’m gonna get dressed now. Okay. Yeah All right, let’s do dress number one, it’s a train As a train there’s a lot of skirt has a lot of train So our first dress was this floral strapless a-line dress from Dana her Elle I love that and by request of the friends, we’re gonna test a avail available ready It’s always yeah So this is just a queen veil. The dress has a lot going on. So I would probably go more clean. Yeah Oh wow now This was actually the first wedding dress I’ve ever tried on besides my wish wedding dresses and it was definitely the first veil so I was a little like Discombobulated. How do you feel you feel like a bride? I feel like a bride. Yeah, like I definitely feel like a bride I don’t know that I feel like me as a bride. Yeah, I only like this dress a lot I’m very impressed by the cake. Yeah. No, it’s very long Also as a side note if my dialogue sounds weird here It was very difficult to get a microphone inside of the wedding dresses. So we actually miked the cactus in the corner So please forgive the audio Oh and also the veil fell off a bunch of times because my hair is too straight Besides those things in regards to the dress itself. I feel like through this It’s like very something I’m interested in like a lot of trouble, but I’m not sure I’m like a floral wiiii gal You’re gonna need like when I see flowers on me. I’m not sure like a flower I always say there’s dresses that you appreciate but if they’re not yours, I feel like you appreciate this But it’s not the one. Yeah, so let’s deflower you That’s a champagne zinger for sure Glass and she’s here. She’s here So with that we moved on to dress number two Which was a nude paint splatter II a line dress by Christos Costello’s. Hello It has like an ombre blush tone. We tried another veil to match this dress I’m trying like really hard to tilt my head so the veil doesn’t fall off So I’m like hello, but it also ended up slowly falling off of my head It’s a slow descent something about my hair is just weird. We’re gonna have to work on that but anyway I had wanted to try on this dress because I liked the 3d elements the nude color and I also liked the idea of trying on a dress that had some of the Volume of a ballgown without the like roundness or like the pouf from the waist I think that like having the crinoline underneath is definitely fun. But once it was on it didn’t really feel like my dress I’m not sure. I like like the tank top. It’s both too thick and yet not thick enough I feel like for my shoulders. I feel like if we’re gonna go with a tank style I want it to be like even thicker just to avoid any kind of like chicken wing situation. Do you? Feel like my eyes go directly into your boobs. I don’t know but like the just the floral it’s just like whoa Yeah, no there definitely are sort of like floral arrangements like right at the neck. Yeah. It’s like sprouting forth almost That’s very metaphorical. I’m like mother nature. Not that my boobs being the center of attention is necessarily a bad thing We can do that that could be what the day’s about but I do kind of feel like most signs were pointing Towards this not being my dress. So we moved on to dress number three Which was our Slenderman sheath dress by Sophie at voila But we I do think I liked a lot of things about this dress. The sleeves are really really really impressive Condor and I really liked the sleek sort of broad shouldered silhouette But kind of really were I guess female Oscar more Oh my god, those fairy things from the 90s that like whirled around often as Isis. They design dancers Yes, obviously, what are you talking about? I particularly liked that comparison because I actually wasn’t allowed to have those as a kid My mom said they would take someone’s eye out, which is actually also probably a valid critique of this dress right there Yeah, no, I could slap someone don’t love it, but imagine just imagine Yeah, so I think for most wedding dresses you have to bustle up the skirt to kind of like walk around and dance after the Ceremony and in this case, you can bustle up the sleeves by like pinning them in the back. I love It she has her arms. She can hug people you can dance that looks so good. It’s cool And the jumper cables are like edgy. I Actually really liked the sleeves pinned up this way as well. It was less slap-happy and more of like a roosting bird You almost look like an owl, but there was still some wing flapping potential How does this one compare to the other two for you? This one is definitely the best Oh, I think I really really really like it, but I’m not sure that It’s the one I felt kind of badass and severe sort of like Daenerys from Game of Thrones But my main concerns were that the sleeves could be like a tripping hazard For myself while walking down the aisle and also that the dress was just generally kind of tight which opens up the opportunity For lumps and bumps maybe after dinner or if a pair of Spanx becomes dislodged it is kind of also like awards showy Like it’s definitely beautiful and I think you should wear this at some point in your life But if you’re like if you’re not sold on it for your wedding, we’re at another time So with that we moved on to our fourth dress, which was actually the bridesmaids choice There’s a lot of glitter now This dress is like a high-low wrap dress from the Australian brand chosen by one day I actually had my eye on a few of their dresses beforehand So it was kind of a happy coincidence that Caitlyn picked this one out I feel like a Hann of highlighter. Like I just feel like Glitter how heavy is it? It’s actually not as heavy on as I thought it would be to be honest I don’t feel the weight. Yeah, it’s surprisingly light but you know, it’s here Now what I like about this dress is that it’s hard to miss and it definitely brings the party vibes with it I feel the impulse. Yeah, I feel the party calling me like I could see myself Breaking it down on a dance floor somewhere. Maybe literally suspended above it reflecting light. You are the ball. I’m the ball You are the ball. Where’s this gonna dance around you is that you literally being a disco ball? Yes. Oh the slow rotation Yeah, I got it. Got it totally rotating Please but even though I feel like we all had a big positive initial Reaction to the sparkle once I stopped moving and kind of took a good look at the silhouette of the dress It just didn’t feel like the design was quite right for me and despite it being their choice I don’t think that it was the bridesmaids favorite either. What do you guys think? I liked the last one better? What do you think of like the darker undertone? I suppose like a white. I like the color. I’m not sure it’s the color That’s making me not feel like it’s a wedding dress specifically I think it was the high-low skirt That made the dress feel a little less like a full-on gown to me and I can kind of see like the short dress Yeah, yeah. I’m not a fan of the short dress cool. All right, so that’s a resounding no So after the disco gown, we were on to our second to last option Which was actually Christie’s wildcard choice. All right, this is the pearl. I don’t know god. It’s gone This is fun. This one is a pearl-encrusted off the shoulder a line dress made by Dana her L who was also the designer of the first gown we tried on I Like this one a lot. I definitely do kind of feel like goddess II vibes in particular I lunched the structured bodice the shoulder straps that strategically covered the chicken wing the loose skirt and also the Asymmetric placement of the pearls also. I like that. It makes sounds I Just love that noise hoping that my boobs won’t fall out It kind of felt like a modern Disney princess gown, or maybe like Belle’s underwear with you know Like the corset and the petticoat, but that’s all to say that I thought it was really pretty I think that from what you’ve been liking it this feels a little Girly, hmm a little like fruity. I think Kristi was right that it just wasn’t quite my style I think that out of all the ones that we’ve tried this is probably my favorite without sleeves Yeah, but I think I just prefer sleeves whether they’re on the ground or just to the wrist I would like some sleeves I think and that’s why it’s good to try on this type of range because yes They hear of killing the curiosity of what other stuff looks like. So our final dress brought back the sleeve in a big way It’s cool, right. That was a lot of this a lot of sleep, haha Well, not quite as much sleeve as the Slenderman dress, but they’re definitely there now This dress is like a flowy a-line Dress by Dan Jones that has a deep V and not quite bell sleeves more like entire flaps of sleeves Looks like a goddess fairy do and it like fits you perfectly Yeah, the waistline is super super flattering for my part. I really liked this dress. I like the sleeve I like the neckline. I like the waist. I like that it like goes out. I like the flow eNOS I do feel comfortable but not in a bad way. I sort of feel like Elizabeth Taylor and like a giant captain Yeah, it’s like that doesn’t bode well for our wedding, right? She had like seven marriages I guess Tyler’s right but the point still stands the dress itself was also very lightweight so it was easy to Spin and breeze around I was a good control spin I hit someone or something. I think it was a bee he is anyway It also had some of the elements of that medieval silhouette that I liked you can get married at the Excalibur in Las Vegas I could you have We are not getting married at the Excalibur jury’s still out on the bachelorette party, though But even though this dress did check off a lot of boxes for me. I still wasn’t a hundred percent. Sure It’s a little more 1970s than like thirteen seventies, but I do like it a lot after a little research I think I actually meant eleven 70s, but you get the idea I think one of the biggest things though that was making me hesitate about this dress is that it reminded me a lot of the Dress I had really wanted to try on in the first place, but it’s not quite the same So I feel like because I’m having such good feelings about stress it makes me like Know that I want like this kind of style, but it also makes me like even more curious about that other dress here What I mean, yeah so even though I really liked this dress and also some of the other dresses I wasn’t quite ready to Commit to anything we had tried on so we wrapped up our session at low Ho empty-handed for now. Now when we all had like a post-mortem after the store, I think everyone agreed that the 1970s big sleeve dress was the crowd favorite But when I keep coming back to is there like v-neck one with the sleeves but not like the crazy sleeves Yeah That one like really just stood out when he Lee came out of the dressing room Just look so you but I still really felt like that final dress was close But no cigar the only like call and I felt about that dress was that it was like a little knight County Yeah Too little just a little it really does seem like it would be Comfortable enough to wear to bed and although I want comfort. I think it might be a little too comfortable for the wedding I feel like I would borrow it from you just like sleep in it was like a big row Wearing the wedding dress So I really wanted to show them the other dress I was thinking about which was still flowy but a little more Structured so this is the dress that is from a different designer And so I really like now this dress is called the Juliet dress made by the brand o to lead the ceremony It reminds me of that black dress that you had in college. That was I think black lace Yeah, bell-bottoms sleeves and like flare, but it was obviously wasn’t long Unfortunately, it was recently discontinued because they started having trouble sourcing the fabric which is why it wasn’t there when we went in I love it. It looks really romantic So that’s why I can’t commit however, when I asked Christy about it She mentioned that she actually knows the designer who runs ogle in Stephanie white and there was a chance that she could make a dress for me using the Juliet pattern but just with a different fabric Which it seems like she’s also done for a few other brides that said because it’s not really in production anymore There isn’t a sample of it to try on so Christie proposed that Stephanie make a mock-up Version of the dress also known as a muslin and then we could use that to make our decision So we’re gonna do this whole thing again Unfortunately because making the muslin was gonna take a few weeks We weren’t gonna be able to have my bridesmaids come with us to lo ho again But I was very grateful for their help in my quest to say yes to a dress Don’t say yes the dresses I don’t thought we have the trademark for that. Yeah, TLC’s gonna come after us Frocks a Frock. Yeah, so fast-forward a few weeks and we were ready to return to lo hos boutique All right, so we are here back at lo ho bride once again with Stephanie Who is the designer from Oda lean the ceremony and she has the muslin of that? Juliet dress that I really want to try on. I’m very excited and a whole sweaty I guess it’s a good thing. It’s a muslin and not the actual dress. So without further ado Stephanie brought in the mock up. Oh Look at that sleeve tie, this looks awesome Now once again, this isn’t the actual dress like it’s not the final fabric and there isn’t any beading or finishings on it It’s just the silhouette. So please ignore any pins if you see them you’re singing right? Sorry But regardless it immediately felt pretty right I love it. I really love it I really really really like it I knew I was gonna love the sleeves but I was surprised by how much I liked the other details like the neckline I don’t mind the DP Oscar my chest waxed And I feel like I pretty quickly realized that this was the dress I was looking for I don’t know if we’re gonna find a better dress. I think this is what was in my head you need This was in my head. Oh Yeah, this is perfect yeah, this is perfect If this has been more traditional and I like just saw you for the first time on our wedding day I think I’d be a little mushy Are you not now? You’re fired? Okay So it was time for us to say sure to the frock. I really love it. No, it’s amazing What are you doing now, do I just run away with it? So Stephanie jumped in to do some additional pinning and measuring to use when making the next iteration Stephanie’s finding all the things that like need to be fixed and I’m just like the slave Now finishing off the dress is still gonna take a few months we still have to choose the fabric we’re gonna use and we might also have to do another round or two of Alterations with the muslin but we’ll get there the next time you see it. It’s gonna look even better So this is my wedding dress mostly, I’m very pleased with pretty much everything about this dress and I’m really thankful that Christi and Stephanie are gonna be able to make This dress happen for me. Is it how you’re gonna walk down the aisle? You best believe it? You’re gonna do the Carlson down the aisle Was going into that real I think it’ll go really well with our venue and general wedding style, which I’m calling minimalistic set design of an indoor Midsummer Night’s Dream in autumn That is actually exactly what I said to our wedding planner. She may think I’m crazy Do you feel like prepare to do like a Shakespeare speech and this stuff don’t get me started. Do you want to accept that? Absolutely not because even if no one really wants to hear me soliloquy I think that this dress does kind of have a poetic and romantic vibe to it. Another thing I really love about this dress is that it feels very much like something I would wear normally for just fancier and Obviously longer so I feel very comfortable and at home while wearing it. Oh my god I feel like they shouldn’t be allowed to study this kind of dress and of course, I love the sleeves I’ve probably said that about 400 times if you’re playing a drinking game to this video and sleeves is on your list you did But besides all that I’m glad that we got this ball rolling Because it is a big piece of the wedding puzzle that we now have locked in and I guess also as an unexpected twist I got to make this choosing my wedding dress or say sure to the frock video while also keeping the Final final form of the dress a little secret from you guys From Tyler and also partially from me at least for the next few months Thank you guys so much for watching and once again a huge Thank you to Christy at lo ho bride and Stephanie a total in the ceremony for helping me find Making my dress and also to Caitlin sophie and zippy for coming all the way down here to be my posse If you liked that video make sure to share mash that like button and if you want to see more videos like this Make sure to smash that subscribe button Also if you want to join our channel as a sponsor for $1.99 a month We do Members Only livestreams every Friday at 3 p.m. Pacific time So maybe I’ll see you there.
