A LOT OF LOVE // RED & PINK

Skirt: Atlantic-Pacific X Halogen. Shoes: Atlantic-Pacific X Halogen (also in rainbow tweed and black)! Sweater: Topshop. Coat: ASOS. Bag: Chanel. Sunglasses: Saint Laurent (I caved and bought them in red).

Last week we launched the Atlantic-Pacific X Halogen collection at Nordstrom. I wanted to take a moment to thank all of the people who have been involved over the past year. The support I have received has been unbelievable.

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” -William Arthur Ward

I cannot express just how grateful I am for all of you. Your constant support is what allows me to take on opportunities like these. The initial enthusiasm for the collection, and now seeing all your posts wearing the product has been the highlight of my year. The opportunity to create my own collection with Nordstrom felt surreal and I worked really hard to make something that I hoped would live up to your expectations. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for the love!

While I had a heavy hand in creating the collection, this was truly a team effort. I could not have asked for a better partner in the Nordstrom team. Everyone from the design team, to product development, to the marketing and events team, to the stores teams, truly went above and beyond. I am forever grateful for the hard work and care that each and every team put into this collaboration.

Unfortunately, the influencer community (and fashion community in general) has the tendency to be seen as catty and unsupportive of one another. I struck gold with the influencers who have come into my life, and luckily, I have never experienced any such negativity. I was floored by the support I received from fellow influencers – some of whom I have yet to meet. Working in this space can feel very isolating at times, and to feel the support of so many of my peers over the past month has made me realize how lucky I am. I’m so grateful for that.

My friends, family, and more specifically Andrew, thank you for being there for me for the big things and the little things. I purposely don’t have a large team, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have A LOT of help. Andrew and I worked tirelessly and over the past year, running the day-to-day business all while working behind the scenes to make this collaboration possible. He has been my rock. A huge thank you to everyone in my life who has seen it all these last eight years and continues to support me.

I know I don’t write or share too much of my personal life and thoughts, purposely choosing to stick almost exclusively to fashion and style, but I do hope you all understand how appreciative I am to be in this position. Even reading this post, the words feel inadequate to express how thankful I am – and always will be – for your support.

XO, BEE

    Your creativity, energy, and personality always shines brightly through your posts here on the blog, so your clothing brand launch was truly a dream come true in terms of getting to learn more about who you are, your values, and other ways you get to express your creativity. On a completely different note, it looks like this outfit would work perfectly for a Valentines Day celebration, but I am all about spreading the love and gratitude year round, making this outfit perfect for now too 😉 The shoes are so fun and festive. I hope you’ve been well and are having a great start to the week.

    I cannot locate the polka dot tulle skirt. Is it sold out? I’ve been on vacation, so this is my first opportunity to order anything.

    • Blair

      Hi Joanne, yes it is sold out. Best bet is to call one of the stores and see if they have received a return. XO BEE

    Hello Bee

    I have been following you now for several years now and you never disappoint me with you’re content and fashion style. Just wanted to congratulate you on you’re new venture. I loved, loved every piece. Do unforeseen circumstances (recently unemployed), I could not buy any of the pieces but it did me lots of inspirations. Again, congratulations on a beautiful collection.

  • Spencer Wong

    Love your style so much sweetie! You look so cute in red. 🙂

    You should be beyond proud of this collection. It’s everything! Congrats on the success of it and fingers crossed you continue to do this with Nordstrom or start your own line because it truly was perfectly done from merchandising, to marketing, to fit and quality and everything in between.
