Hello from Stockholm!

I just got into Stockholm and I can't go to sleep because I'm so excited. I love it here! I was here a couple years ago and was always dying to come back. It's a beautiful city with beautiful people and great shopping and street fashion. There are tons of great young designers coming out of Scandinavia and they have started leading fashion. The people here just have an effortlessly cool vibe to them and wear their clothes really well, so for me it's really inspiring. I've been in London since Monday shopping for work with my boss Melody and our president Kevin. It's been a fun trip so far! In London, we did LOTS of shopping, walking around the city til our feet were aching, and LOTS of EATING! More about the yummy details later, but I was glad that I got to know London a lot better on this trip. I'm going to post some pics when I get home and tell u some secret shady shopping techniques for collecting ideas and inspirations and bringing them back to the team in NY. 
Ps. Hmmm.. I know it sounds like it's all fun, and maybe even a bit pretentious traveling around Europe shopping.. (Ok, it's pretty fun) But, believe me when I say that it is really hard work and super exhausting. And not to mention that spending 24/7 with work peeps isn't always hunky dorey.. thank heavens we have a super fun group on this trip, but we HAVE run out of stuff to talk about after so many meals together! hahaa.. Anyways I better go to sleep.. It's now 2:26am Swedish time. Goodnight!! xoxo

Abbie,
Wow!! Hello from Stockholm. I wish my blog had reads like that. I love your blog (and so does Rich-he he he)! Ditto Lib, we can all live vicariously through your adventures. Very cool. If you ever go to France and need a translator, give me a call. :) I can't wait to see some pictures!

Abbie - how fun and exciting! You have had such an exciting life since you stopped being my babysitter! Have fun - and post some links of clothes you are designing that we can buy. I want to wear an original Abbie, even if the label has another name, and brag to my friends!
