Two Penny Blue, Erin Gates from Elements of Style and Marie Whitney's new blazer line

I was so excited to see Erin Gates from Elements of Style’s new blazer line, Two Penny Blue! I love companies that have a great product, meaning behind its name and that give back. How gorg is the ikat blazer!

What’s in a name?
Two Penny Blue refers to the Two Penny Blue Stamp - one of the world’s first adhesive postage stamps. Featuring a portrait of Queen Victoria as a 15-year-old princess, the stamp celebrates women in power and symbolizes education and democracy. Our logo is the classic Maltese Cross which was used to cancel the Two Penny Blue stamp as it traveled through the postal system. Our name also pays homage to the founder Marie Whitney’s mother, Penny– who started her own business at the tender age of eighteen and always inspired Marie with her big heart and entrepreneurial spirit.

About Two Penny Blue
Two Penny Blue is a collection of luxury jackets and blazers that combines thoughtful classic design with fine fabrics, bespoke detailing and an impeccably tailored fit. Known for its signature silhouettes and effortless sophistication, the Two Penny Blue collection presents a modern twist on classic tailored pieces.
For every jacket purchased, a school uniform is donated to a girl in need in Africa – opening the door to her education, increasing her self-esteem and providing the opportunity for a brighter future. Two Penny Blue was founded in 2010 by designer, Marie Whitney. She created the collection with the dream of using fashion as a way to educate, empower and inspire young women and children around the world.
The Two Penny Blue line is proudly made in the United States with extraordinary quality and care. The collection is produced in small quantities and every jacket is released and as a one-of-a-kind, Limited Edition piece. Trends may come and go- but quality, classic lines and attention to detail always endure.

Pioneer Linens: The Well-Oiled Family Machine by Guest Blogger Ariel Bachman

 Photo Credit: Palm Beach Post

Today we have Guest blogger, Ariel Bachman, the new Social Media Manager over here at B. Social (you'll be hearing more from her and about B. Social's Services very soon) but we wanted to share her behind-the-scenes take on the well-oiled family machine, Pioneer Linens

As Beth and I were leaving Pioneer Linens after a business meeting last week, I was overcome with a sense of inner peace. The kind of feeling you get after sharing a few belly laughs with good girl-friends over dinner. Or the feeling you get staring out the window on the way home from a family vacation. And even the feeling you get after pushing through an intense yet invigorating workout.

I thought to myself, "Where is this feeling coming from and why now?" As Beth and I walked past the rows of fine bedding- neatly pressed, pined and tucked at every corner, I knew "this feeling" had nothing to do with the thought of slipping into bed for a mid-afternoon siesta (which I ended up doing a few hours later) and everything to do with the dynamic of the store. You see, Pioneer Linens was built and is run by a family! It was started in 1912 by the father of George Greenberg a.k.a. The Mayor of Clematis, Beth and I had a meeting with the current owner, Penny Murphy (George's daughter), and her sweet daughter, Camille. Their back-and-forth banter is a comfort level you cannot replicate, even with the finest employees. There's just something about a mother-daughter duo that tugs at my heart and makes me envious of my many friends who are fortunate to work side-by-side with their moms, dads, sisters and brothers.

So, as you ponder the key to success, keep in mind, it just might be rooted in the 100-years of family history.

Thanks for reading and get fired up for the 4th with these adorable kitchen towels. Click here to enter to win them!

Sincerely yours,

Ariel Bachman
