Tell: The Social Studio t-shirt, The Social Studio silk dress, TS14+ black dress, handmade long necklace, Tatty Devine necklace, Fluevog boots.

Share: This is me yesterday, as Antonia Ruffell and I – from the Sydney Outfit – went about Sydney city attending meetings on The Social Outfit. It was a really productive working day: meeting high-level NFP leaders and business people about our plan, and looking for their insights to make sure we’re preparing the investment model well. Having Antonia there with me is fantastic; a team of people working together is so much stronger than one person alone. xo

Share: Yesterday we had a strategy meeting for The Social Studio work in Sydney. *Seven Smart Minds* helping me to progress the work. The meeting went really well – with plenty of enthusiasm and clarity – and now it’s back to working hard and setting plans. The good news too is you’ll soon be able to see exactly who is involved and how people are helping me… so stay tuned!

And fashion-wise, a splash of winter colour al-lah The Ken Done Master. Comfortable and oh-so-BRIGHT! I wore this dress on my second last day of What Ken Be Done (just over a year ago, now), so it’s got plenty of *rad* memories… xo xo

Share: So much meeting and greeting over these past two days… Yesterday I met and chatted with Tom from StartSomeGood about crowdfunding, and then I met with Celia at Dragstar about running boutique fashion labels locally (and ended up being involved in their *rad* competition. Check out my impromptu presentation skills – or lack thereof – here ). Below is Ingrid and I unveiling the Dragstar winner:

A big thank you to Tom and Celia for your time and expertise. Very helpful. Then today I met with Natasha who is writing a media piece on The Social Studio for Andable (who are launching in May – check it out – like Etsy with social impact).

And next I’m off to meet some of the lovely women from Africa Konnect. Plus, all this fun while wearing this *excellent* The Social Studio‘s felt cape… check out the back detailing… Yep, it’s like louvre system while I zip around the joint!! And, of course, a Happy Friday to you, xo

Share: What do you get when you cross a social entrepreneur with information on crowd-funding, with a boutique fashion business owner? Well hopefully what I’ll get is some great advice and good inspiration today for The Social Studio when I meet these two folks! I’ll keep you posted how I get on…

You have a *good* one today, too xo
