Let it Slide

I have a fervid hatred of flip flops. Ok, I may have stolen those exact words from my friend Anna, but I am in complete agreement. My strong distaste for them likely stems from the actual flop sound they make as you walk. That and seeing men sport them in the city, which to me is cringeworthy. Seems my coworkers agree on this – when the subject was brought up, a collective “ugh!!” marked the shared repulsion (though it should be said we are not opposed to man sandals – mandals – of every kind, just this particular variation).

Things I Learned from my Activist Family

De’Ara Balenger came into the Atelier on a Wednesday afternoon and I was especially looking forward to meeting her. It’s always nice going to work and leaving with a new friend, someone you connect with, who inspires you. De’Ara exuded positivity, but beyond her personality, she has a very impressive resume. She was the director of engagement for the Hillary Clinton Campaign and then worked as the National Organizer for the Women’s March, which we were happy to be a part of too.

Activism is new to a lot of us but it isn’t new to De’Ara. She comes from a long lineage of socially and politically involved parents, grandparents (and great grandparents!). Doing good is in her DNA. In an effort to inspire and motivate us to be the change we want to see, De’Ara takes us through the things she’s learned about being an activist from her change-making family.

A Walk in the Park

You know what I love most about NY when warmer days are upon us? Well, besides stumbling on the ideal multi-occasion dress during the current summer retail sale season – it’s the ability to find a space that can serve as an unofficial version of ‘Central Perk’ even if 100 other people are there too (insert under-breath grunts about how New York has changed).

Yesterday, I was in my walk-in closet trying to imagine its future. I’ve never had a closet this big before, but even so, it’s already full. So I closed my eyes, took a big breath, and sent up a prayer to the god...
