My Take: Postpartum Dressing During a Pandemic

I’m easing back into this whole “outfit” thing.  Postpartum dressing is not for the paint of heart.  Throw in a pandemic, and as you can probably guess, it’s kind of the worst slash nonexistent.   Your normal clothes don’t fit but also, you’re not going anywhere, so who cares, right?   BUT, for me personally, getting dressed […]

A Look Into Nordstrom Made Brands

How the Pandemic Affected My Small Business

Deep thoughts for a second here.  In 2019, we launched One/Third.  We were primed for greatness–small but mighty, ready to hustle, and just create something.  We couldn’t have been more excited for 2020; we had new styles launching, were upping the ante with our agents and factory partners and were going to dip our toe […]
