How long have you worked at All She Wrote: I bought the store at the end of 2012.
Favorite item we sell: I’m loving our long cotton night shirts right now. They’re the perfect length and a weight and so pretty with a monogram. I have collected quite a few… it’s becoming a problem!
Favorite monogram & why: My custom monogram designed in-house because it’s unique to me.
3 words to describe All She Wrote: Classic, preppy and warm.
Can’t live without my: Emily Ley planner. It keeps my head together.
Email or snail mail: Snail mail, of course.
Polka dots or stripes: Stripes for sure! I love any kind of stripe from really wide and bold stripes to tiny ticking stripes.
Tea or Coffee: A large nonfat one Splenda latte. I do not function without coffee first thing in the morning… and many days to keep me going in the afternoon.
My perfect Saturday in Chicago would be… sleeping in until at least seven (a forgotten luxury as I have two kids under two) then go for a long walk with my family around our Lincoln Park neighborhood, hitting a playground or two. We’d probably pick up lunch from the Chicago Bagel Authority (the Messy Katie is my favorite). The night would definitely consist of a babysitter, maybe cocktails on a rooftop bar somewhere and reservations at one of the many restaurants on my list of places I want to try.
