A brand that truly speaks to my soul. The simplicity is refreshing and easy.

Sexy enough to wear out on date night and cozy enough to wear to bed. LITERALLY.

I swear my sixth sense is finding brands/businesses with RAD founders.

Brittney + husband Brian Kelley ((of Florida Georgia Line)) founded and designed this line & let's just say they are KILLING IT. There is not one piece to date and I probably have about 15 that I am not 100% in love with. All made in the US with incredible quality too.

let's get in her business// Brittney Kelley of T R I B E - K E L L E Y

MEET BRITTNEY KELLEY

You may recognize this mega babe from being on the arm of husband + co founder of TRIBE KELLY, Brian Kelley from one of my favorite bands and probably yours too, 'Florida Georgia Line'. 

trust me when I say there is much more than meets the eye with this girl


 \\ she is beautiful + intelligent +  has a soul that is burning with passion //

you'll see what I mean and get to know her more when you read her q+a below

I was introduced to their brand, 'TRIBE KELLEY' not too long ago when a girlfriend tagged me in an instagram post. I was immediately drawn to this clothing line before I even knew anything to do with the owners. It was different, it was striking, it was not a brand that was "trying" to be trendy. It was a brand that was setting the trends. Effortless and so chic. 

Not to mention it was a line that was functional. I literally thought "ohhh, I can totally where that out on date night and at school pick up". Now thats what I call a win/win! 


<< here are a few of my favorite pieces >>


GET TO KNOW BRITTNEY + LEARN A THING OR TWO WITH THIS 

q+a

Where does the name 'TRIBE Kelley' come from?

b. "Tribe Kelley was formed when I wanted to transform my college part-time job into a full-time brand my husband and I could both share. I ran my own Esty account in college to pay for my little one bedroom apartment. You could find me studying Psychology & creating one-of-a-kind pieces throughout my schooling at the University of Georgia. I was married by the time my last semester came about & Tribe Kelley was formed on my husband’s tour bus one afternoon. Combining my native american ancestry by using the word “Tribe” and our last name “Kelley,” the brand was born"

What do you find most difficult about running a business with your husband?

b."I find managing our creative and personal time together the most difficult. When your passion is being creative, sometimes it is hard to turn on and off. When your working with your spouse, it is important to schedule “off” time. Off time to me is simply going on a mindless walk in nature or finding yourself driving a backroad having unplanned conversations. It is also important to find personal time to re-charge so that when you are around your spouse you are able to fully give your time and attention to them whether that be for business or personal time"

How do you find balance between traveling so much and running a business?

b. "I run my business on the road while I travel. To be honest, sometimes I get the most work done while on a four hour plane ride to Los Angeles. Some of the best list making sessions happen in the back of an Uber stuck in traffic. Having to adapt to working on a bus, plane or even train sometimes, is one of the most challenging, yet greatest parts of what I do. If I wasn’t able to travel, where would I draw my inspiration? Sometimes I wonder if I was never forced to sit four hours on a plane if I would ever get any computer work done"

It seems like you both have a good hold on originality with your brand, do you feel thats what leads to your success?

b. "My husband and I both are big on being original with your art, no matter what form your creating. With music or design, you must draw inspiration from somewhere, but the result must be something so original it cannot be copied. We design our collections seasons ahead of time, so copying what is currently trending is never an issue for us. We like to create styles that fit our lifestyle at that moment, giving us the upper hand on originality, in my opinion"

Looking ahead 3 years from now, where do you see your brand going?

b. "We dream of having small, curated boutiques all over the US and possibly the world some day"

What has been the hardest struggle through starting and owning your own business? & how did you get through it?

b. "The hardest struggle for me personally, is being too independent. I don’t like to ask for help and sometimes you NEED to ask for help. I like for things to be done in detail and I fear if I don’t do them myself, then they aren’t done right. My biggest challenge has been to let parts of Tribe Kelley be handled by my team. For example, by allowing my social media team to take over, it has given me ample time I need to design & perfect future collections"

If you had one "do over" as a business owner, what would it be?

b. "Having more patience & opening on a correct “fashion schedule.”— I rushed to open my online business because of excitement. I ended up putting myself behind schedule on seasons and I should’ve waited a couple more months."

If you could give an advice card to each couple who is considering starting a business together, what would it say?

b. "Make sure you and your spouse both want to enter business together. I have friends and family couples that would never be able to work together, and that is OK. Some couples operate better having different jobs so that they can come back together at the end of the day and have options to converse about. Other couples enjoy being around each other hourly and are able to work within the same job. Being honest about working together is the best advice I can give. My husband is also a musician, so he gets his time to work on a project separate from our brand, and it is always refreshing to have other topics to chat about at the end of the day" 

Hope you guys enjoyed this feature as much as I did. Now go buy some'TRIBE KELLEY' pieces and let me know your thoughts!

Shayne Lamas-Richie Q&A for Home & Styles by #momthebuilder

Shayne Dahl Lamas-Richie

Where do I even begin with this beauty? Shayne Lamas-Richie really is a queen, wife to Nik Richie notorious owner/blogger of thedirty.com, daughter of Lorenzo Lamas, granddaughter of Arlene Dahl, and most importantly mother of Press Lamas-Richie, Rex Jagger Lamas-Richie, & one more on the way.

Her soul is as beautiful as the Christian Louboutin's on her feet. She is the true definition of glam. I've always been a fan of Shayne's fashion sense, I knew I had to hear more about her home. From the shoes on her feet to the hats  on her head she is always dressed to the 9 whether it's a casual day in the park with her daughter or a date night with her man. She is an amazing mother, wife, and human. I knew this interview would be amazing. Get to reading. Muah! xx

q. Tell me how you would describe your home style?

a. Mid-century shabby chic California colonial transitional vibe.

q. What about your home would surprise people?

a. I have a library totally decked out with a Upper East side Manhattan brownstone vibe.

q. Does your home reflect your fashion style?

a. I would say it does not. Only because my home is my sanctuary, my safe place, and most importantly my home is comfortable . My fashion style isn't comfortable re: my daily shoes of christian louboutin 160mm Daf booties ... But dammit they are bitchen with jeans.

q. What or who inspires you?

a. For my home decor, what inspires me usually comes from the mood I'm in. My home grows with my family, as change occur in our lives so do the drapes. Also, seasons or modern decor will inspire change.

q. Where is your favorite place to shop for your home?

a. Gosh, I can shop anywhere for anything but I am addicted to Horchow's catalogs! But, gotta love the flee market finds and the awesome trinkets at places like Home Goods, Target, Ross etc.. You will not find me anywhere near an IKEA, ASHLEY Furniture or in the Home department at Macy's. I 'd rather jump off a cliff.

q. Did becoming a mother and having a little one in the home influence your decor decisions?

a. One thing the baby bible forgets to mention is your entire decor goes out the window and rubber safety corners dorn that once beautiful mirrored coffee table. I have a storage for the glass tables And Versace China set aside until further notice.

q. To date, what is one space you have designed that is your favorite? Why?

a. Oh! My vanity/makeup dressing area. It's the only thing that's off limits in my home. I need a barn gate like you have lol. It's my favorite space because it's my personal space. It's my collections of the most coveted pieces I own and my place to feel beautiful . Whenever I do get ready I know that my space is always organized smells pretty and lighting is always perfect. I designed my dressing area to be so glamorous and sparkly that my daughter awes and oohs every time she steps into my vault. It's my thrown in our Castle and is my most loved space to date. Soft pink silk drapes, a vintage chandelier and ottoman with fresh flowers no fuckin children or husband nagging it's just amazing.

q. Does your home decor vary over seasons? If yes, how so?

a. Yes, absolutely every season ushers in new found light, energy, and love. Every home must welcome it, starting at your front door with Wreaths of each season. Flowers that blossom from my backyard , colors of summer, colors of winte. They should have a place in each time. I always interchange my throw pillows, throw blankets, vases, candle scents, hand soap in the guest room, the coffee table books etc..

q. Do you ever seek your husbands opinion on home decor or are those the Queen's decisions only?

a. My Husband sleeps in Pratesi sheets flown in from Italy, he doesn't mind the occasional pink and fluff.

q. & most importantly. What is your personal favorite Salvaged Soul piece?

a. I need like 10 of these ...
