Well. I have the most exciting news in Society Social history! 

We collaborated with
on an exclusive,
one of a kind,
limited edition
bar cart!

The print above is an original from their print studio (I shall cherish it forever and ever!) and I was so excited to receive it from the Lilly HQ that the Society Social factory designed and produced a brand new sofa, the Beverly, to match!
Pink, grosgrain trim, and white welt, does it get more Palm Beach Prep than that?!
On March 18th our joint bar cart, will be rolling out to all Lilly Pulitzer stores for their iconic "Lunch with Lilly" event and I'll be rolling out to the Madison Avenue store for meeting, greeting, and mingling! Mark your calendars for this Saturday from 1pm to 3pm! And for the pre-party, come see us this Thursday from 5pm to 8pm!This event is one of four of their biggest annual events that they purposely treat more like cocktail parties for their best customers! All of the below could be yours! Well, except for the pink wicker flamingo that I scored for $15 at a local thrift shop!
Aside from the Lilly Pulitzer x Society Social bar cart, Lilly customers will have the chance to earn all the bar cart accoutrements shown above and below!Our official slogan for the collaboration is "Cheers to the sunny side of life! Celebrating sunshine, spirits, and the pursuit of a great party through Lilly Pulitzer's resort wear and this limited edition Society Social bar cart!" How fun is that?!This is quite literally a life dream come true as I've been a subscriber to the Lilly way of life and their colorful brand for as long as I can remember! I mean, how can you not be a Lilly girl? You will have ONE DAY (literally) to snatch up all these gifts and our limited edition bar cart before it's gone forever. The Society Social factory produced it just for Lilly Pulitzer and the team worked so hard to make it happen!

**Check out some Behind the Scenes AT SS Here!*

To earn your chance, visit a Lilly Pulitzer store or on March 18th. If you're headed to the NYC Madison Avenue store, I really hope to see you there!

As always, thank you to the moon and back for all your excitement, support, and love! And to the Lilly team, I (and we!) will be forever and ever grateful for this once in a lifetime opportunity! Wishing y'all the best #LunchwithLilly of all time! 

Who else googles a person before an upcoming meeting? Be honest ;) A few weeks ago I was making a house visit for a potential project and upon googling the couple, found the sweetest Youtube video that told their incredible story. More on that later! It got me wondering what people might find if they Google'd me!
Enter Google search bar, "Roxy Te"
The usual popped up: Society Social features, LinkedIn, Twitter, and delightfully my old blog, last post dated January 25, 2014. Relieved not to have found anything floating around the interwebs before 2007 aka all the smart decisions I made in college, I decided to click around to see what the "7 years ago me" had to say. I found myself on the About Me Page which I wrote back in January 2010.
Disclaimer: this was written pre-Society Social and the year of a mid-twenty something crisis in which I quit my corporate job to "find myself." We lived in Charlotte, NC and I was so mad I ever left NYC. I sent out countless, unanswered resumes and endured unemployment for a year during which I decided: I would never get back to my favorite city, I was getting left behind, my life was doomed, professionally and personally I was worthless and a failure and an embarrassment to my husband, family, and self. That was such a fun time! 
The last paragraph on aforementioned About Me Page made me stop and feel the feelings.  
Even in the Anne with an -e depths of despair, I wrote in January 2010: "One day I will zip around THE big city on my Hermes orange vintage bicycle, have a dog named George, live on a tree-lined slash cobble stone street, renovate my pre-war brownstone, and know that I made my mark!"
Y'all, I didn't give up on myself! Which is incredible because I honestly remember thinking I would never ever find my way.
So to recap in the 7 years between now and then:
We made it back to NYC.
My Hermes orange bicycle might be a blue overly-used and abused rented Citibike.
My dog's name is Oscar not George. He is such a good Oscar.
Our street isn't cobble-stoned but it is tree-lined.
And while I may not own a brownstone that I can renovate (who did I think I was growing up to be? SJP?), our rental apartment is pre-war!!!!
This all counts, right?!
I know this is so emo, (go on, roll your eyes, I don't care :) but I teared up a little in the realization that one way or another it turned out ok and that life is truly what you make of it and if you want it bad enough, you work hard enough, you don't ever ever give up, then you won't let yourself fail, whatever "fail" really means anyways!
Well. That is all. I just wanted to share the good juju, even if you don't need it, but especially in the case that you do.

Vacation re-entry was made easier by Monday's fancy pants "business meeting." I've never had Afternoon Tea at the Plaza's Palm Court, or consumed anything at the Plaza for that matter :), so this really was such a treat! 
At $75 for a spot of tea, 4 miniature tea sandwiches, 1/50th of a pineapple, and a crumble of scone, I won't be back anytime soon, but I certainly recommend this quintessential New York experience for special occasions, which this one was! 3 pinkies up for a project that is slowly starting to take real life shape! The interiors and ambiance themselves can make even a mundane Monday feel like an extraordinary celebration and I can't thank my hosts enough for the generosity and for helping me check a long awaited New York adventure off my list!
