Greg and I arrived in Los Angeles this morning! My last visit was 14 years ago when we traveled across America on our honeymoon. It’s magical to be near the ocean again. The warmer weather and sunshine are an added bonus.

We’ll be visiting Karen Kane’s head office and factory tomorrow and we’re exited. Karen Kane, a fabulous clothing brand I recently reviewed on YLF, is an impressive family run business that manufactures their items in the US. They are also less than a month away from launching their online store, which is no small feat. We’re going to catch up with the Kanes, learn more about their business strategy, tour their factory and design room, and take a sneak peek at upcoming collections. We’ll be sharing the details of what we learn during a series of posts over the course of the month.

In the meantime, be sure to watch our Twitter account because I’ll definitely be tweeting along the way. This adventure is going to transport me straight back to my much missed fashion buying days so I’m sure to have a lot to say.

As if that weren’t enough, we will also get to meet some of the Los Angeles based YouLookFab members at a gathering in Pasadena on Saturday. Life is good.
