In the spirit of Thanksgiving and all things caloric, we're donning our bonnets and aprons and serving up a triple feature. We spoke with our beloved, In-Store Brand Merchandising Manager, Christine Motsco and Sarah Ashton Clark, Wholesale Regional Sales Manager for the Southeast, South and West. They're sharing the secret to doing it all with their bags Hot Date's (oh la la).
Like a locker room at the big game, green room during opening night, empty classroom before presenting your Senior thesis, the Powder Room is sacred. This hallowed space can transport and rejuvenate you. This holiday season, Deb's decorative prints have a similar effect.
So, with transport in mind, let's begin our journey with a little trip down memory lane...
If you're like me, then we share a deep, dark secret: we've never been to...New York. There! I said it! Well, you've probably cooked up some ideas about what it's like. You fantasize about being the tallest and prettiest Rockette, dead-center of a chorus-line high-kicking it's way through Times Square. Today, we will stop rolling the dice on destiny. Your big city dreams need an update, Honey. This doesn't mean they can't still be your special treasure feelies, but you do need a pre-trip reality check. Thankfully, we know Deb Johns. She is a bonafide New Yorker who will tell you straight up--real New Yorkers avoid Times Square like the plague. Forget the chorus line fantasy. At best, you'll be in the waiting line for a picture with the Naked Cowboy or just generally waiting in line to move. Also, Frozen Hot Chocolates at Serendipity, like, aren't the thing anymore. But, don't be scared. Hamilton will always be hot Broadway fire & our guide to New York will be your ticket to the Met Gala (ie. really awesome).
We're pouring bags, our hearts out, and drinks (kidding, this is a professional interview! Who do you think we are?!) with my favorite SCOUT Media Manager, Megan Principe. I love Megan. You want to know Megan and how she does it all. So, she's opening up her go-to bag, so you can open your ~mind~
Deb will be the first to tell you that a stripe will always be a crowd pleaser--it’s timeless. It's classic. At the same time, she’s not going to settle with safe and move on to the next pattern. But, where’s the fun in that? Where’s the twist?! This is when Deb comes in with the layers and variety. This is fashion, people! We gotta keep things interesting! Continue reading →
Party people put your hands in the air and get amped for the holidays. Deb teamed up with Sak's Fifth Avenue for a show geared to give women a taste of what’s coming up for fall/winter dressing. With backstage photography, a la Erin & Megan, and a play by play from Deb, we're serving you some VITAL information for your every day (and more importantly, holiday) life. Continue reading →

This Friday marks the official start of fall. I sensed the approaching deadline after receiving the gentle prompt from a fellow southern rule-follower that the time had come to cast off and/or lock up any traces of white, linen, etc. (I don't actually follow this "rule," by the way, and neither should you!). If you're anything like me, then picking an outfit in the morning seems tantamount to being a contestant on the Great British Bake Off. You look at your garment rack in panic as if you've been given an almond and orange, then asked to make 24 fortune cookies. Before you start screaming, having a meltdown and making yourself late for work: stop. Take a deep breath. The answer is right in front of you and much easier than it seems...
