Quarantine Q&A with Weezie Hype Girls

Liz Eichholz, Weezie Towels, @weezietowels

Two items you could not quarantine without? 
There has certainly been a lot of robe time in our house! I’ve been waking up to get work in before my 2 year old gets up and I’m in a rush and not quite ready to get dressed yet–Patterned Robes have been in heavy rotation at our house over the past few weeks! My go-to is the Short Robe in our Gigi Style, I love the fun geometric print and the short sleeves are perfect for the warm weather here in Savannah. 

La Colombe Coffee delivery to fuel those extra early mornings and long toddler filled days. 

What has been your quarantine silver lining?
Without a doubt, spending more time with my daughter Tempe has been my quarantine silver lining! I am pregnant with my second daughter and due in June, so having this extra quality time with Tempe is something I will cherish forever! Mind you, a good amount of this time is reminding and prepping Tempe that another gal is on the way / about to steal away all the attention she is used to! 


What is the first thing you're going to do once this is over?
See my parents in Texas!! (Also a manicure and pedicure is very long overdue). 

Song (or songs!) that always makes you smile! 
Moana, Frozen, and Trolls thanks to my 2-year-old. 

Where is your happiest spot in your home!
Our back patio has been heavenly the past few weeks! From a spot to have breakfast with Tempe, hop on a Google Hangout for work or have a mocktail with Jason after work, I love being able to get some fresh air throughout the day! The Savannah weather has been perfect the last few weeks, thankfully!

I have been living in our Long Robe in our new Parker Blue style! It’s the happiest shade of blue and has been a much-needed source of comfort after a long day.  I just had a baby a little over a month ago, so my next ‘can’t live without’ item has to be our Doona stroller.  Long walks with my family of three have been a saving grace!

What has been your quarantine silver lining?
We relocated to my in-law’s house in Charlottesville, Virginia.  I’m enjoying the extra space, fresh air, and quality time with family (not to mention the extra sets of hands with our new baby!)

What is the first thing you're going to do once this is over?
Host a cocktail party for my friends to finally meet our daughter!

Julia Amory, India Amory, @indiaamory

Two items you could not quarantine without? 
We came down to Florida not anticipating being here for as long as we've been and as a result, my clothing options have been limited - I've been LIVING in my India Amory x Sue Sartor dresses that are basically socially acceptable nightgowns. In non-clothing related items, books have been a godsend - currently reading Lady in Waiting by Anne Glenconner which is fantastic, have especially loved learning about the early days of Mustique which she and her husband developed. 

What has been your quarantine silver lining?
I hope we'll all be able to look back on this and see the value in how slow it is. I feel very lucky to have been able to focus so much on my 10-month-old daughter right now - there have been a lot of firsts! It's also provided time to reflect on New York where I grew up and the amazing capability and sacrifice of those in healthcare and the NYPD / Fire Depts. Having been in high school in the city on 9/11 I was naive to think that would be the hardest thing we would face as New Yorkers. Never been more proud of my hometown and look forward to supporting the causes that have supported the US during this for many years to come. 

What is the first thing you're going to do once this is over?
Well, I look like Nell (if you haven't seen the movie add it to your quarantine list) so some proper grooming should be done before I plan to reenter society. HUG MY DOGS and my parents (in that order). 

Song (or songs!) that always makes you smile!
Dancing in the Moonlight, Bad Moon Rising, Penny Lane 

Where is your happiest spot in your home?
Not quite home, but on occasion, in the evening we go out to take in the ocean - last night there was a pink moon. It's a priceless luxury right now that I'll be forever grateful for.

My Weezie robe!!!! I put it on every night after I shower and it's my heaven. As soon as I put on my robe, I also put on these ridiculous but amazing EMU slippers a friend gave me. They make me laugh but I swear when I put them on, I breathe deeper. I've been known to wear them out of my house. AH! haha! 
 
In terms of my art - I just discovered ProCreate on the IPad along with an apple pencil. It has been a game-changer for me creatively and I can't seem to put it down. I have also been dreaming really big about getting to work on a collection of ceramics. 
 
What has been your quarantine silver lining?
​It made me quickly realize that I have been so buried in the business side of my art, that I was not feeling creative. This time is really allowing me to send a breath of fresh air into my business that I did not know I needed. ( Art classes have been so fun) 
 
What is the first thing you're going to do once this is over?
​Get in the car and drive to see my sister. This time has made me realize how I have taken for granted the opportunities we have to travel and easily see family and loved ones. The fact that you simply cannot get to them right now - makes you miss them even more. 
 
The second thing I am going to do is go out to eat!! Sitting at the bar at Curate with my fiance in Asheville, NC might be one of my favorite things in the world.
 
Song (or songs!) that always makes you smile! 
​I am really into this song " Who Built the Moon" by Austin -based band Shiny Ribs. It makes me want to dance around. 
 
Where is your happiest spot in your home?
I just bought a house so I am currently living with my parents but their yard has been totally magical and felt like a retreat during all of this mess. They have a little Gazebo with a fireplace that we have been camping out for dinners a lot recently - it is my happy spot.

Tracy Anderson is saving me right now with her online workout classes that I can stream from my laptop.  

When I want to get out of my PJs but still be comfortable, I am loving our new French Blue Breton Dress.  

What has been your quarantine silver lining?
I love being able to spend more time with my family and being outside more.  We’ve been going on a lot of walks and playing in the backyard on the bouncy house, in the garden, and having picnics.  

What is the first thing you're going to do once this is over?
It will be nice to see friends and family that we can’t see right now.  One of our favorite things to do on Friday nights is to get together with friends to order pizza and let kids run around and play, so I am looking forward to being social again.  

Song (or songs!) that always makes you smile!
Clocks by Coldplay.  For some reason, Coldplay always makes me happy!  

Where is your happiest spot in your home?
Our garden!  Weve been lucky to have really nice weather during this time, and the kids love picking the peas and looking for bugs. 

Anne Read Lattimore, Lake Pajamas, @lakepajamas

Two items you could not quarantine without?
1. The Defined Dish cookbook, which I highly recommend buying if you don’t already own. We cook dinner from it more nights than not! If you want a real treat, google then make Alex’s recipe for grapefruit margaritas. You’re welcome ;)

2. Comfortable pajamas of course! My current go-to is LAKE's new navy dot modal set.

What has been your quarantine silver lining? 
It’s been nice to slow down. We’re having lots of family time, and I’ve found myself doing things with the kids that I don’t always make time for, like going on walks or cooking together. Also, the closets in our house are now clean - a definite win.

What is the first thing you're going to do once this is over?
Dinner out with my husband and our friends is high on my list.

Gen Sohr, Pencil & Paper Co, @pencialandpaperco

Two items you could not quarantine without?
Our favorite cozy stripe pajamas from Lake layered with this Kule cardigan (we are always cold).
 
What has been your quarantine silver lining? 
Of course, spending more time with family has been really nice and not feeling like there are a million places we need to be. We spend so much less time in the car, and rarely feel rushed anymore! My husband has figured out that the key to my heart is fresh flowers (even better he sends me a video during his grocery run - and lets me choose my favorites). Plus, we've absolutely loved having a bit more time at home for our own house projects. We're finally about to tackle landscaping our house!
 
What is the first thing you're going to do once this is over? 
Get a manicure, color my hair, visit family and friends, deep clean the house, go to our favorite restaurant, book that fabulous vacation we've been dreaming about... the list goes on! I think there are so many "little things" we won't take for granted anymore when this is behind us.
 
Song (or songs!) that always makes you smile! 
Bizarre Love Triangle by New Order.
 
Where is your happiest spot in your home?
We've been spending lots of time in our happy little "sunroom"- it's the perfect spot for morning coffee and evening cocktails. One of the many "silver linings" of this time at home, has been reconnecting with faraway friends. We've actually been enjoying lots of  "zoom cocktail dates"!

Morgan Smith, Minnow Swim, @minnowswim

Two items you could not quarantine without? 
Self-care (post-shower): my Weezie robe + Dr. Dennis Gross Daily Peel or Joanna Vargas Face Mask. 
 
What has been your quarantine silver lining?
I have had more time to slow down with my two-month-old, enjoying a 'form of maternity leave'. I didn't think I was going to get that slowed pace with my third baby and running a business. 
 
What is the first thing you're going to do once this is over?
Put my kids back in school/summer camp... ;)
And Hug friends, go out to dinner, and take a trip to California to see family! 
 
Song (or songs!) that always makes you smile!
Leon Bridges & Whitney Houston 'higher love' is my quarantine pump up on an evening jog ;)

Where is your happiest spot in your home? 
Our porch! We've had amazing weather in Charleston this past month, a huge blessing for all our moods!

Cristina Lynch, Mi Golondrina, @mi_golondrina

Two items you could not quarantine without? 
Our classic Midi Flores Dress has helped make me feel dressed and comfortable when I work at my home or go for a walk with my husband in the evenings. I have also loved wearing my Lake Pajamas. They are so comfortable and I love matching my daughter. 
 
What has been your quarantine silver lining?
This time has been hard for everyone but I can’t get over how many silver linings there have been. I have loved the way our team has come together during this time. We are moving quickly while leaning on each other and coming up with new ideas every day. The best silver lining though is that I am at home more and get to see my beautiful daughter. 
 
What is the first thing you're going to do once this is over?
Have a large party with friends with lots of tequila. 
 
Song (or songs!) that always makes you smile! 
I love Neil Diamonds song on the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood soundtrack - Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show. 
 
Where is your happiest spot in your home?
Our dining area because I love having dinner with my husband there at the end of the day.
