Today, HEUCY met with Julie Sabatino (our new girl crush and founder of “The Stylish Bride”, http://www.thestylishbride.com) and our conversation veered toward the subject of hem lines. You can’t really discuss (ahem) hem lines without talking about the one and only Coco Chanel. Julie also mentioned that she had started out working in finance before finding her real passion as a fashion and wedding stylist.
Which led us to another stream-of-consciousness thought. One of HEUCY’s favorite Coco Chanel quotes is, “A girl should be two things: who and what she wants.” As we near the official launch of HEUCY’s e-commerce site later this month, Suwha and I have had a chance to think about “second acts” and being who and what you want to be.
One thing we will never be: perfect. Honestly, who is? And would you really want to be around someone who is? One thing we can be: ourselves. It’s exciting to know that you can leave a career you’re not satisfied with, or not inspired by, that’s not really “you”…and pursue something else. Or leave a relationship, be it work or personal, and find something that’s more fulfilling. The hard work and sacrifice is worth it, to land on a pursuit that makes you happier, smarter and “better” in the long run.
On that note, we’d like to highlight the HEUCY #ProblemSolver in Black. This was Julie’s favorite style, and we think it captures today’s thoughts nicely. One of our goals at HEUCY is to solve problems — you don’t have a ton of time to get dressed in the morning, you don’t have time for multiple outfit changes throughout the day…and/or you are on your “second act” and the usual suspects (workout gear, business casual, skinny jeans) just don’t work for you anymore. Here’s a little tool to help make those problems go away. Available for pre-order now at http://www.heucy.com.
