I am very excited to introduce our newest Spotlight Partner, Mey. Ever since I first saw this charismatic intimate apparel collection at Curve, I have been mesmerized by their merchandising acumen. Their integration of every facet of lingerie into a lifestyle vision is mesmerizing. Using coordinated colors and prints, Mey delivers 8 dynamic deliveries per year that flow together flawlessly.

Launched in 2017 right after she completed a fashion degree, this indie label has since grown into a small team of four people who still create everything in house and on a made-to-order basis, in line with the brand’s ethos for ethical and sustainable production.

Positioned in Harvard Square, the store embraces all the cardinal rules upon which my own career was weaned: location, location, location. They have managed, very successfully to not only create a joyful shopping environment for their customers but also to interface that experience with a very dynamic e-commerce site.… Read More


A few weeks ago, I saw this PJ Harlow® image posted on social media and had an Ah Ha merchandising moment which I shared with owner and founder Tina McMillan. PJ Harlow® has always catered to brides. Just scroll through their Instagram and the bridal message appears. But, and it’s an important But, nowhere was there a coordinated statement of the power of the PJ Harlow® bridal products.
