I’m really loving all of the new online boutiques that keep popping up. One in particular that caught my eye recently is Nine Space!
I was drawn to them for their overwhelming attention to detail and perfectly photographed products. They jump off the pages and help tell a beautiful story of what they’re about – which is simply artisan decor, cozy throws and dreamy bathrobes. They also have amazing yellow dip-died napkins that are a must for Spring.
As promised last Friday we’re chatting with the founders/designers of SIX1FIVE and giving away one of my favorite pieces from their collection – an edgy, cozy classic sweatshirt perfect for just about any casual, yet chic, occasion.
I was intrigued with the Cissy Jones and Emily Cook business model and their ability to spring-up a brand that has so quickly caught a cult following. Cissy and Emily dwell in Dallas, Texas. I hope you enjoy my chat with the girls.
Oh and let’s not forget that fantastic sweatshirt! Just email, tweet to us or write on our facebook page “sweatshirt” and be automatically entered to win this “must have” Fall find.
1 winner will be announced on cecyj.com next Monday, November 25th, 2013.

Advice for women starting their own company?
GO FOR IT AND STICK WITH IT. THERE ARE A LOT OF BUMPS IN THE ROAD, BUT YOU MUST PERSEVERE. RECOGNIZE YOUR TALENTS AND USE THEM TO YOUR ADVANTAGE. BE MORE AWARE OF YOUR WEAKNESSES AND FIND A WAY TO CONQUER THEM.
Where is the clothing made? How and where do you source the materials from?
ALL PRODUCTION IS LOCAL IN DALLAS. WE LOVE SUPPORTING OUR CITY AND BEING ABLE TO BE HANDS ON IS A HUGE ADVANTAGE. OUR MATERIALS COME FROM ITALY AND CALIFORNIA AND CISSY SELECTS THE VINTAGE FABRICS THAT LINE THE BAGS AND BLAZERS FROM LOCAL VINTAGE SHOPS
A friend of mine, who also happens to have a terrific Public Relations firm in San Francisco was filling me in on one of her new clients. I immediately asked if I could interview the founder, Diana Vincent for a blog post about her recently launched High Camp Home. What started as a brick and mortar boutique and premier design firm in historical downtown Truckee, California, in the Tahoe area has stretched its wings into a fabulous e-commerce site. High Camp Home makes sprucing-up the ski cabin an incredibly easy task!
High Camp Home is cholk-full of all the chic rustic lifestyle essentials including furniture, lighting, accessories rugs and seasonal decor. My favorite detail over at High Camp Home is the local artists work available for purchase, making it easy to find the finishing touches for decorating with a relaxed, yet polished vibe.
With the leaves starting to fall and the wind blowing outside just about every item over at High Camp Home is on my “must have” list for fall and winter
A few of my absolute favorites…

I hope you enjoy the interview with Diana Vincent and a peek at one of her Tahoe area interior design projects that is a true inspiration for comfortable beautiful living. Not to mention… her fantastic travel tips for your next visit to the Lake Tahoe area.
My signature style is sophisticated rustic design. No bears or moose allowed! I love combining texture with natural materials to create space that is warm and inviting but rustic and rugged enough to withstand the active lifestyles of my clientele and the harsh climates that surrounds most of the homes we work with.
2.) The perfect carpet brand/ line for a Tahoe cabin to withstand snow & ski boots?
In reality, the perfect carpet is really WOOD as it is durable and wears well.
4.) Favorite, product you have in stock right now?
As it is fall, I love pulling out the blankets and throws and currently our store is filled with some wonderful throws that are not too heavy but have fabulous texture and rope like tassels. The Europa throw in camel is my favorite, although our Halloween Ghosts are seen walking down the street with customers visiting our store everyday, this time of year!
5.) The perfect stocking stuffer for Mom?
Pairing the Chalet Stripe Scarf with the Decorated Hoop Earrings is a great combination. Throw on a pair of Uggs, cozy sweater and jeans with this scarf and earrings and you are good to go anywhere in Tahoe!
6.) You are based in the in Tahoe area. Give us the scoop…
