We’ve been gone from here for a while…the good news is we are back and recommitted to staying in touch with you all through You Look Pretty.
The better news is that we have been away from the blog because we have been so busy with Julia Farr and Julia Farr Collection. Writing the blog takes quite a bit of time and forethought, and, sadly, when the “to do” list fills up, the blog tends to fall to the bottom of it. But no more.
Here is what we’ve been up to:
We traveled all over the country for trunk shows this past winter and spring introducing the Collection to a wonderful groups of women along the way.
We love meeting new people in new cities, and reconnecting with old friends. Our trunk shows are always a fun, social way to meet and connect with women and tell our story.
We also attended some stellar Georgetown events, like the Georgetown Global Summit in New York,
where we heard from a panel of seasoned fashion executives: Domenico de Sole, Chairman of Tom Ford International, Fabrizio Freda, CEO of Estée Lauder Companies, John Idol, CEO of Michael Kors, Ermenegildo Zegna, CEO of Ermenegildo Zegna Group and our good friend and classmate Kara Ross, CEO of Kara Ross New York.

It was an incredible opportunity to hear what these talented, experienced and bright fashion industry leaders had to share about the future of global luxury retail.
Julie and I were thrilled to be a part of Georgetown’s OWN IT Summit – a one day program produced entirely by Georgetown undergraduates in which over 40 panelist are invited to talk with the college-aged attendees about women’s leadership (more about this later).
There were also fashion shows
and photos shoots
Don’t worry, we made sure to make time for some fun too

It has been an exciting winter and spring and we have a few more surprises up our sleeve, programs that we will roll out here first for all of our You Look Pretty readers.
We are so grateful for this community and for your support as we grow our small business. It has been a great ride so far and we are excited about the future of our company!
We wish everyone a peaceful and joyous holiday weekend!
