Ladies Lotto: No Man’s Land

May 3, 2009

Ladies Lotto I made history recently. I am the first man ever allowed into a Ladies Lotto monthly meeting. I really had no idea that dudes were not allowed into their top-secret conclaves, but when I showed up at the door, I immediately knew I was in for trouble. “What are you doing here? No boys allowed,” She said, with her arm blocking the entryway.

Thankfully, my friend Summer Rayne Oakes saw what was happening, and came out and vouched for me. Summer was the special guest speaker that night, so she had some serious bargaining power. After much fanagaling (I was told I could only have one drink!) and she led me into no-man’s-land! The room was packed with really cool gals. I was a bit of an eyesore, so I got to meet a lot of people. All these ladies were doing really awesome stuff – and the host was one of our favorite designers, Tara St. James of Covet!

I’ve been raving to all of my gal-pals that they absolutely have to join this network of independent, motivated, creative businesswomen! It was a really supportive, motivational, and inspirational collective. Summer Rayne spoke about her new book: Style, Naturally, and the process of writing and publishing. There was vegan food and drinks and lots of networking going on. I truly felt honored to be allowed into their midst.

If you have a lady in your life who would benefit from a network of smart, savvy, hooked-up peers, definitely tell her to join Ladies Lotto. Right now!


DBTV Episode 1: “Concrete Catwalk”

January 31, 2009

I went into Soho posing as a television host to give people wearing fur a hard time. If you want to know why I’m giving these people a hard time, click HERE. Some of my favorite quotes from the fur-wearers:

“…beavers are not extinct, which is one of the reasons that the designers make those furs.” – dude wearing a beaver coat & huge fur hat.

“I’d like to think that they were just run over in the street…”woman wearing a new full-length mink.

I just assume it grows its hair back and it’s all OK at the end of the situation…” – woman with fur hat.

We’re from Michigan, so we need our furs.” -  mom & daughter fur duo

“I’m an animal lover, so this is quite at odds with being an animal lover.”woman wearing head-to-toe fur
