Hi + happy Leap Day! This was a good week. It’s funny how much you appreciate your health after you are sick! It felt so good to be productive and feel healthy again – last week was rough. This weekend I am verrrry excited because I am doing a little staycation at The Four Seasons in the city. My friend Jackie is visiting from SF so it makes for the perfect girls’ night. This week’s highlights included dinner at American Bar (SO delicious and great design, it’s kinda like a beachy downtown Polo Bar), watching the Love is Blind finale (can’t wait for the reunion this week, lol!), recording with two big guests for the pod (Tara Foley + Sallie Krawcheck). Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s great! xo

    In response to this weeks podcast, please educate yourself on the flu shot! Someone with your platform should TRY not to spread misinformation about something so important, I would hope it’s something you will address next episode or have a health professional on the podcast to clear up any misconceptions, because you’re not the only one.

    I wonder if your favorite dress would look good on someone with a large chest ? Thank you

      I am honestly not sure, especially without knowing how tall you are! One thing I will say is that the dresses are sized for length, not width (because without the belt, it’s just a giant sack!) So I think it depends, especially with how you belt it. I think it could work, but the high neckline and belt might not be great. Apologies for being vague I just don’t know!
