Because my business life is so busy, my home is really my sanctuary.
That is where I reflect and spend quality time with my girls.
I find I'm an old soul.
A great dress can make you remember what is beautiful about life.
If a great outfit gets you one step closer to feeling good about yourself, then it's worth every penny.
Design the life you want to live.
I'm inspired by different cultures around the world and love to incorporate these facets into my collection.
My biggest influences are strong, creative women that chart their own path, lead their own lives and drive the course of history.
I am inspired by life, past experiences, what's to come, women around me, art, colors, paintings, and emotions.
Someone's energy and aura and soul are so much more important - they don't compare to what you have on.
If I didn't love the hourglass, I wouldn't love myself.
I realize I never stand out in a room unless I'm feeling balanced, centered and happy. It sounds really corny but it's very, very true.
I would not invest in any shoe that is too trendy.
Not everyone has to be a model and a designer, there are so many other options that are great and long-lasting. It's just finding what you're good at and being honest with yourself.
I tell girls all the time that the men that have fallen in love with me, have all fallen during a man repeller stage funny how life works out like that.
There's nothing wrong with looking like a woman and going in the workplace and doing everything a man can do but looking 1,000 percent like a lady.
I am really focused on how I can improve myself and the world around me.
I've always loved fashion so much and I didn't have access to the kind of fashion I really wanted, so I would do vintage shopping.
I put my children first, but I always keep my obligations or my commitments.
You really have to do some internal work to know yourself, know what you're capable of. See how many meetings you can take a day or how much work you can get through in a day. Give it lots of proper time and respect, but also give yourself the respect of having your downtime, whether that means yoga, pilates, a meditation class, or a cooking class.
My greatest peace is at the ocean, which was part of my decision to move out of Manhattan. A real treat is a trip to the beach. One of my favorites is Capri, and I love Mexico, but no matter where it is, it's really difficult to be in a bad mood when you're sitting on the sand, listening to the ocean.
I care about how you feel when you're wearing something, because I think that if you feel confident, you look beautiful.
At the end of the day, I want to create collections that, although I am inspired by very creative women, I want my customer to walk away with a silhouette that she doesn't even know what collection it comes from. That it just lasts in her wardrobe and makes her feel strong and confident and hopefully happy.
I have always admired the way women put outfits together.
I try to set an intent every morning and take time to think about whatever I hope to achieve that day. I've learned that there's never going to be enough time to do anything. It's never going to be a perfect day, and I'm at a point in my life where my children are more important than work. Work is still important to me though, and I love what I do.
Give yourself time to work on your dream.
If you want to start a stationery company or if you want to start an Internet site... Whatever it is, pick the thing that you love, and allot the time, but know and value the downtime as well.
You should always feel confident in everything you wear, no matter what trend you fit or don't fit into.
I don't think that everything that's popular is necessarily right for every body and so I'd like for girls to be confident enough to make the right choice for themselves and to look unique.
I dress women the way I see them and the way I envision them from day one, thus my customer knows that what she is looking for she will get.
I always keep a woman's body in mind, accentuating her best features.
Women should wear clothing. Clothing shouldn't wear them.
Dress for the story that you’d like to have people know about you before you even open your mouth.
I am definitely a person who supports mothers.
I believe in having children. Maternity leave and all that stuff is super important to me. In terms of one-on-one with employees, being a mom helps me ground my roots to humanity. When someone is going through a personal issue, I can keep it on a human level.
My first job was in retail at the age of 14, and I have worked in the industry ever since.
If you feel good, you stand up a bit straighter.
When I look at pictures when I was younger, I do the quintessential cringe.

It's something that many women are not familiar with, but it's crucial.
I love to smell like roses, literally all day!
When you have children love is always there in the best form.
I think that women can tend to look so feminine so easily.
So it's interesting to see how we can look masculine and strong, too.
I'm a big proponent of young women dressing appropriately in the workplace to get ahead. We need to demand respect as women, and part of that involves how we present ourselves.
Choose something that you're passionate about.
So for me, that's creating jobs for women who don't have a voice. I would like to be their voice until they're strong enough and on their feet to have their own and really be heard. The way that I can do that is not necessarily by hand-outs, because my hand-outs wouldn't be great enough to really affect change. It's by providing jobs.
When looking for a partner, definitely find someone who has shared values.
Really talk to them about what their values are, what their goals are, and how they wish to achieve those goals. Problems always do arise, but when a problem arises with someone who shares your values, you'll know that you'll want to attack that problem in the same way.
I have known that I wanted to be a designer since I was 8 years old.
Women are not taught to get a massage or do anything for ourselves because it makes us feel extraordinarily guilty. But the more we can fill ourselves up with things that make us happy, the happier we'll be, the happier our children will be, the more we have to give, and the more loving we'll be.
I always have one foot in the street, so I know not everyone wants to dress like the women they see in music videos.
I'm thankful I grew up the way I did.
It made me a hard worker and insightful to other people's lives.
There's a beauty in that innocence that comes from not knowing.
It allowed me to take a lot of risks and I took them because I chose a company in a field that I love. So for me, it didn't even feel like working.
A person's life is of their own making, and I take full responsibility for mine.
If you really want success in life, it's two-fold.
You want to be able to take care of yourself and take care of yourself well, but there's the other side in which you want to be able to take care of yourself so that you're a happy person, so that you're passing those qualities and those tools onto your children.
When I go out and I'm presenting the best side of myself, I want to look different from everyone, but I don't want it to look like I'm wearing a costume.
