Another month down, its hard to believe we only have 2 months left before we close the books on 2014. October was full of exciting things at Kuzak’s Closet and in my own personal life. We had an event with a global brand, we held several estate sales and liquidations, we organized homes in Silicon Valley, and most importantly I made time to get away for a few days to visit my family.
I kicked off the month with a fall event at Kate Spade at Santana Row! I was so excited to partner up with them. I love their fashion and I thought it made sense to see how we could incorporate Kuzak’s Closet vintage style with their classy timeless looks. I was able to hit the store for a little modeling gig before the event, sharing some of my favorite pieces with all of you on the blog last month. On the day of the event, my entire staff came to support. All of the gals even had a beauty day at DryBar and then we mingled with some of our friends and lots of new friendly faces. It was a great experience and it really has encouraged me to branch out more in the future. I think its really important to find new avenues to promote a business and brand, while having a good time, do you know what I mean?
It’s been my goal in 2014 to find more work-life balance. I’m still a workaholic but thanks to my staff I have been able to take more time for myself, my friends and my family without feeling guilty. For example, my friend Willem organized a fun day in Napa (he does this often but I typically can’t make it due to estate sale conflicts) and I made it a priority to go. Chris and I met up with him and our other friends Leah and Jen for lunch. Then we did a few tastings before enjoying wonderful dinner together at Bottega in Yountville.
