Pleasant Pre-Show Surprise


Got something in the mail a few days before we were set to drive to New York for our two tradeshows.  

It's been a really hectic month in terms of dealing with the marketing, logistics and financials of Chichi Mary, and there are lots of times when it's really easy to lose perspective.  But simple, little packages of joy like this really serve to ground me and make me appreciate the fact -- I love what I'm doing!

For someone who loves fashion as much as I do, how can you not love receiving the pictures below:

We're back in Tokyo!

Ah, Tokyo --  we are back in the capital of the land of the rising sun, and our hearts are beating fast with excitement!

The last time we were here, Mary was just a year old and Chichi Mary was still a dream inside of me waiting to be fulfilled. Three years after, we're back -- this time for a childrens wear trade show in search for more beautiful dresses for Chichi Mary.  Of course, we'll definitely be enjoying what Tokyo has to offer (more on that in a future post), but for now it's business first.

Mary really enjoying the red carpet.  But like before, we don't think she knows what it means yet  :)  Wearing her Eliane et Lena Sanary Dress, she is dressed for both comfort and style.  This is such a match for summer weather, as the weather in Tokyo was also scorching hot.
