Let me star by saying one thing WAAAHHHHHHHHH WAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! Ok just had to get that out… I haven't blogged in like forevs, I know, but I've been running around new york city, sweating like a little piglet trying to get my shizz together for our first TRADE SHOW. Yup, Jules Smith is official…we showed at Intermezzo and we were received with smashing successes. We got an account in Canada and a few in my old stomping ground Chi-Tizzy and even one in Miami and Los Angeles and New Jersey and Brooklyn….and you see, people did like us!! Just before the trade show we signed on with a new showroom, Cynthia O'Connor and Co and we have about 1 million new designs that you haven't yet seen and judging by our preliminary responses, people LOVE them. The new designs will be live at the start of next week, so check out the website! I'm in the middle of Tropical Storm Dean right now. Tomorrow we are supposed to have 50mph winds! Our plan is to infiltrate our friend's house, watch movies and drink margaritas. At our little apt, we don't have a generator…we just sold our house with a generator and now are LIVIN' island style a cute little apartment. As we have power outages when it is sunny out, we know the power will be out when we wake up tomorrow and we're lucky if we get it back on Sunday… Monday is the start of a crazy week because I am showing at another trade show in NYC in September!! Which means more new designs!!!! More deadlines and more running around New York like a sweaty sweatofferson. CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY… my GF Joni, las jonitas, (pronounced las yonitas) is coming to NYC with me, and she will experience the joys of hanging out in the Javitz center for 3 days, rocking out jewelry. OK, the wind is ripping and the power is officially off……2 hours on a battery pack and it's the weekend!!!
