What a wonderful day! 11/11/11 and Veteran's Day. Ash and I are both pretty superstitious ladies. We make a wish every day at 11:11 and have some other odd superstitions (we won't even go there); needless to say, we have been looking forward to this very lucky day for a very long time.
Happy Veterans Day everyone! We are working right next to the parade on 5th Avenue right now, and it is amazing to see the outpouring of love and support for our veterans. ash&dans thanks everyone for their service to this country.
We had a great meeting this morning with an awesome up-and-coming accessories company, Eleanor Kalle. The fabulous and fashionable designers are still in college and already have a great concept and business in the works. It is so inspiring seeing all of the young entrepreneurs out there who are taking the leap of faith to make their dreams a reality. We know firsthand how difficult, but also how rewarding it is to start you own company at such a young age with so many factors and naysayers working against you. It is so important to go for the gold and do what you love, regardless of what people say, regardless of the fact that it is not the "common" path to take. So kudos to the ladies of Eleanor Kalle. Keep your eyes peeled for this company, we hope you'll be seeing them in the future.
Have a great weekend everyone! And don't forget to bundle up in your ash&dans of choice.
