She didn’t smile in her photo in The New York Times. I stopped mid-scroll and clicked on the image. She wore a colorful headwrap and thick gold choker, but it wasn’t her accessories that had drawn me to her – not exactly. It was her graceful, regal confidence I found magnetic. Her chin was tilted up, just slightly, and her head rested lazily on the wall behind her. Paola Mathé looked like a woman who devoured life passionately and stood tall in her worth. I imagined she had a deep belly laugh and would tell you exactly what was on her mind. I felt I had so much to learn from her.

This December my schedule filled with holiday gatherings, celebratory dinners, and nights of mulled wine and holiday Pandora stations. At first it felt like too many activities, which usually stresses me, but then I found myself easing into it and realized how much joy it brings me to spend a long evening laughing with friends, going to bed in the wee hours, and doing work the next morning with a latte beside me, knowing I get to spend the evening with friends again. The gatherings that had seemed overwhelming in theory feel nourishing in reality, and I can't imagine my weeks better spent. Here's to stretching past a point of comfort and discovering your own elasticity and more concentrated happiness on the other side. And to finally having a family of friends here in LA that make living in this city (that for so long felt intimidating and ostracizing) feel like my home. ❤️🎄(Art : @christianespangsberg)

Last week something incredible happened: our January Work Sesh in Venice sold out in three days. As soon as the last ticket was claimed, we began to get emails from you all asking to be added to the Wait List. So we made a quick call, teamed up with Dani and Taryn at @bizbabez, a female co-working and creative space, and created another series in January to accommodate everyone. This series will be Wednesday mornings in DTLA. Reserve your space while tickets are available! (There is a link in our profile.) Can't wait to see you all there. x Chelsea

A small collection of stories and wisdom from women we admire. Issue 04 : NYC available now.

When there is a new film released that is written and directed by a woman (Greta Gerwig) and tells the story of a complicated but full of love mother/daughter relationship, you can bet we're going to see it (multiple times) and let you know what we think. The Lady Bird review by our film critic Jenna Gundersen is now live! (As always, just click our bio link to read.) -- And dying to know what you all thought of it as well. Have you seen it? What'd you think? #womeninfilm #ladybird

I try not to have favorites, but @kristintexeira's Q+A from Issue 04 is one of my favorites. Everything from the detailed description of her days in her studio to what she says about romantic relationships meshing with business - it's all so good. Read for yourself at the link in our profile. (photography: @greyandelle)

As the flurry of holiday shopping begins, we’d love to plant the seed for giving a different type of gift this year -- a gift that will be treasured just as much as anything wrapped, but one that will have a far greater impact.

When you look back, ten years from now, what will you miss most about today? -- by which I mean, this season of your life. The chaos? The quiet? The way the morning sun makes shadows on your kitchen floor in this home? The abundance? The growing? The loving? The time? (photograph : @marisavitalephoto)

I’ve been studying something I’m calling The Myth of The Urban Necessity, and I’d love to hear from you. Do you live in an urban environment but wish you could live in somewhere rural (perhaps closer to your family)? What keeps you in the city? Or, do you live a creative, entrepreneurial life in a rural community? How do you make it work? Have you found a community of other creatives in your town? I’d love to hear your stories. x C. photograph: @stinayulia

I spent the day with my fave sisters (@greyandelle) wandering around SF, meeting rad people, drinking tea, and shooting some iconic SF landmarks. (Well, Grace shot, not me, but I was excellent moral support😉) We made it to the Painted Ladies, The @palaceoffineartstheatre, Lands End, and @ferry_building. Bay Area ladies, did we miss anything magical? Where else should we make sure we see while we’re in the city? #bossladiesissue05 photograph : @greyandelle

Before opening @shopmcmullen, a women's boutique in Oakland, Sherri was a buyer for @neimanmarcus, where she was responsible for buying men's accessories for all of the NM stores across the country. Then she helped @williamssonoma launch pbkids from scratch. During this time she realized that she and her friends travelled into SF to shop because there wasn't any shopping in Oakland, even though the demand and the market was there. So, ten years ago Sherri opened @shopmcmullen, a destination for high-end fashion in Oakland, selling primarily women-designed brands like @maki.oh, @dvf, @apieceapart. Swipe to see our visit with Sherri’s baby boy. ❤️ #bossladiesissue05 photograph: @greyandelle

Today we had the immense pleasure of spending the morning with Isobel, founder of @bryrclogs, and her team. Isobel began making the contemporary clogs with her brother's tools in her front room after a career designing for companies like American Eagle and Splendid left her less than fufilled and yearning to get back to her sculptural roots and make with her hands again. Now she has a retail space / studio in the Dogpatch area of SF where she builds beautiful shoes (made to order!) alongside her four-woman team. ❤️ Photo: @greyandelle #bryrclogs #bossladiesissue05 #dogpatchsf
