10 Questions with Laura Moylan

Probably Kate Middleton. She is so classic and elegant, but can also be laid back and down to earth. She has some amazing dresses and coats.

Shara Hughes. I first discovered her at her latest show at Moca Ga where I went for a fashion show for another amazing Atlanta based designer and friend, Megan Huntz.
3. Describe your prefect date night.
Living in Inman Park, there are so many great restaurants within walking distance. On a warm summer night, I love walking to Fritti for their delicious pizza or Serpas. I love their salmon chips. My fiancé and I love to eat out then head back home with ice cream and a movie.
4. Where is your favorite local place to shop for clothes?
I can pretty much walk into Calypso on the west side and like everything they have. Also love to shop Annie Griffin trunk shows and warehouse sales.

I wanted to be a clothing designer. No joke, when I was 8 years old I put together my first "collection" and asked my parents if they could help me find a manufacturer. :)
6. What book made a difference to you?
Lately I have been reading a lot of business and entrepreneurial books. Right now I am finishing up "let my people go surfing" by Yvon Chouinard founder and owner, patagonia. It is so inspiring to hear the story of an extremely successful business man from the beginning with all the struggles he has faced over the years.
7. What is your favorite thing to cook at home?
I love Ina Garden and have also been using a LOT of Smitten Kitchen recipes lately..Deb Perelman's recipes from her blog and cookbook are amazing! One of my favorite things I have made from her blog are these Pancetta White Bean and Swiss Chard Pot Pies.

Either a cuisinart or my black Sam Edelman booties that are so comfortable!
10. What is your main goal for 2015?
My main goals for 2015 is to balance work, family life and pleasure. I spend a lot of time on my business, but realize it is so important to take time to exercise and relax. Trying to find a balance can be hard! I have to remind myself it is just as important to take some R&R.
