A designer who was applying to work for AB Inc last week wanted to know what I love most about my job. I answered…
1.) Designing beautiful jewelry that is innovative and affordable. Jewelry that leaves the customer in wonderment.
2.) Meeting amazing women that have amazing stories. Women who don’t need to look like a size 2, not in the fashion business, but who are real people who live full lives. Here are two…
This is Wanda. She is 86 years old. She first came to Saks Fifth Ave. 8 years ago to a trunk show and we fell in love.
She married her sweetheart from elementary school and stayed married until he passed away a few years ago. She has the most amazing blue eys and a powerful will.
Wanda flew up to NYC to spend her 86th birthday with me. While she was here, I took her to see “Anything Goes” on Broadway. She is one of the sweetest and shrewdest women I know. Thanks Miss Peddie!
This is Theresa. I met her at Nordstrom in King of Prussia.
Immediately I thought she was just as sweet as sugar pie. She came at 10:00am and was one of the first customers to greet me. Over the time I talked to her I found out she was one of 10 children who grew up with loving parents, but parents who were uneducated. She put herself through school and got a doctorate which she then gave to her Daddy.
She is now the Vice President of Temple University and dedicates her life to giving… an unbelievable woman! She blew me away!!!
