It's International Women's Day. I am so happy to live in a country where we can raise our daughters to dream big and become anything they want to be.  Girls have been slaying life and breaking glass ceilings for years, but it hasn't been easy. Trying to build a little business myself, I know first hand, what it takes in time, effort, creativity, and most of all "courage," to build anything, including a family. Today let's celebrate the strong women in our lives and in the world. "May we know them. May we raise them. May we be them."

HERE: Six Women To Know

Sophia Amoruso just may be the original #Girlboss, or at least the girl that coined the phrase. Ten years ago, with a laptop, an Ebay Account, and a closet full of vintage, she created Nasty Gal, in a tiny San Francisco apartment. Her book is a "must read" for any female entrepreneur. Then follow up with her second book, Nasty Galaxy.

Betsey Johnson
After more than 30 years in the business, the iconic designer and her company namesake, are still going strong. "Like red lip color on the mouth, my products, wake up,  brighten and bring the wearer to life...." And that they do.  Fun finds for Spring are the Pom Pom Scarves and Fedora. The Mayas Sneaker is sturdy yet feminine with appliqued florals. And for the month of March, Save 20% on Jewelry and Watches plus Free Shipping with Code: CHARMS

Oh Joy!
The Oh Joy brand was founded by Joy Cho is 2005, as a design studio. Today the brand now includes product lines, how to videos, and a delicious daily blog that features fashion, food, design, and other joyful moments. Joy also is an author of Oh Joy! 60 Ways To Create And Give Joy (a lovely gift) and two other Guide Books. See them all at Amazon.  What I like best about Joy's brand is her fabulous home and baby goods sold at Target. She has made good design....fun and affordable. These bandaids will take the ouch out of boo-boos. They are so so cute. The Upholstery Collection is fun to the max! That screen is fab. And for decor and more....darling vases that scream YAY, confetti cushions and much more, click here.  "Ms. Shop This" had the opportunity to spend some time with Joy recently. She is as good and fun as her collection!

Lane Huerta - Lovelane Designs
Lane has spent her adult life as an artist, but it wasn't until her darling daughter, Clementine, showed a fondness of playing dress up that her business began. It was then that Lane started creating her colorful and quirky line of handmade children's costumes, capes, angel wings, and super hero crowns. I adore the heirloom quality of her imaginative wear for little ones. Her creations and their pricing reflect the loving care, that every double stitch is given. See her playful products at Lovelane Designs and read her story on the Etsy Blog

Joy Mangano
This woman is a mother and creator with a curiosity about solving problems. She is so successful that you probably know of the movie about her life, Joy.  Hers is an impressive career, for sure. I for one, am a huge fan of her Huggable Hangers.  You cannot believe how they can transform your closet! They are ultra slim and actually good looking with a color to match every decor. Yesterday's blog post featured her luxe leather luggage. You can see all of her inventions at

Rachel Zoe
A fixture in the fashion world, Rachel is a fashion designer, editor, and stylist to the stars. I am quite happy being me. However, if given the chance to spend a day in the life of someone, Rachel would be at the top of my list. Her Spring Box Of Style features stylish products made by women for women. It's over $400 worth of style for $99.  And you can save $10 on your first box with Code: BOS10. Rachel has two beautiful boys and has a created a diaper bag and matching stroller that are really good looking. I'm crazy for her Bern Tassel Sneakers at Shopbop! If you want to know what's trending and fashionable, or what Rachel is up to, head to her blog, The Zoe Report.

Well done, ladies!
