2010!! We're living in the FUTURE!

Hi its me. So what should I say? 2010!!!! We are living in the future!!! I love it. I love that each and every one of you has been part of my journey. You have been part of the Bleu Journey. My love journey, my friendships, fashion experiences, fashion mishaps, the recession, the rock star President, the dud of a president, the hope of a president, full moons, new moons, blue moons (we are getting one this NEW YEARS eve), tears, laughter, everything. Thank you for making Bleu Los Angeles, Bleu Westlake and what they are today. Thank you so much for all of your love and support. Please know that every time you walk in to my stores or buy something online you are keeping someone employed. I am proud to say that I have not let one employee go because of the recession. I would rather take less for myself than let any of my wonderful girls go. This brings me to where I have been trying to go this entire paragraph. Supporting SMALL BUSINESS this year and hopefully all my life is my New Year resolution…

I am going to do my best to support small designers that do not own their own factories. I will try to buy my groceries at the local Farmers Market, I will go to the tiny tailor and the sweet little dry cleaners on the corner, and the amazing restaurant, and the pet store that is owned by the waitress that use to work at Flora Kitchen. I may make a mistake or two, but I am doing my best to support Mom and POP. I want to hear about all of the local great places you go. I want quality places that deserve recognition because of their great service, or their wonderful products, not because Paris Hilton shops there. I want to support business that give raises to their employees and keep them on even when they get beyond expensive for helping build a business. I want to hear only good from you in 2010. My mother always had one rule in our house that all four of my brothers and sisters and I had to live by…”If you have nothing nice to say, then don’t say it at all”.
