• Off-Season in a Mountain Town

    I have lived in this valley for over 30 years and have seen quite a few changes -  some positive and some not so positive. The one thing that doesn't seem to change is the offseason, charmingly (I mean that sarcastically) referred to as mud season. 

    As the ski resorts shutter and tourist visitation wanes, our small town once again belongs to us locals.  Albeit for a precious 3 weeks - it's still pretty darn nice. This time of year you can get a table at your favorite restaurant (until they also close for the offseason), there is parking on the square, grocery shopping is a breeze, and you don't have to wait for three lights before you can make the turn home. 

    At Habits, we see some of our favorite locals who stop by to say hi and wander downtown for lunch because, hey it's empty. 

    Some people find this the perfect time to get out of Jackson and head somewhere warm and sunny. Some of us stay and take advantage of local specials or biking the plowed road through Grand Teton National Park  (while it's closed to motorized vehicles until May 1st) and simply relishing the quiet before the storm.

    If you find yourself in Jackson, Wyoming during this magical season, enjoy the solitude and come say Hi we could use the company.

  • 2018 Images

        Habits has to tell a visual story because I respond best to a lovely image.  I am so fortunate to have a wonderful crew who understands this too.  As the year comes to an end, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of our favorite images from 2018.  I am grateful for this talented posse.  Betsy Wright-Clark, Lisa Flood, and Mallory Mantle-Yarto.

     Cheers to creating more of these beautiful images in 2019.

  • Equality for all

    What a year, 2017.  You managed to provoke, mobilize, divide, unite, and give everyone a reason to unfollow that weird cousin.  While I felt compelled to share posts that made me feel like I was contributing to something, I still felt like it was lip service.  

    Coming from two very similar political states, Texas and Wyoming, I have felt my voice, as a Hispanic female, pretty non-existent.  These are places that value the "good old boy" club.  I don't think that it is in a very general sense, bad or wrong. Just not always fair or impartial. How can you believe that women deserve to earn less, should not be trusted with their own health care, or have no right to ask?  This is where it is wrong and not fair.  

    To be part of a movement means to stand up for yourself and others, to see injustice and to act,  to provoke.  This is not always easy or even possible for many.  Fear. Fear of alienating colleagues. Fear of someone disagreeing.  Fear of standing alone.  Fear of losing friendships.  Fear of reprisals.  I feel all of these and more.  But, at some point, you must stand for what you believe.  Marching this year and last year gave me faith that we are not alone. 

    I believe in human rights.  I believe in reproductive rights.  I believe in the freedom to choose.  I believe in the American Dream.  I believe in education for everyone. I believe in the Human spirit. 

    What do you believe? What will you fight for? Humanity? I hope so.

     

     

     

  • Film and Fashion

    One benefit of small town living is that your customers become your friends. We were  in the shop chatting about some of our favorite films and how they make visual impressions that  inspire fashion and architecture.  Several films were discussed and I mentioned  how the Danish Girl enthralled me.  The costumes, interiors, scenery, and story were so captivating.  We could have talked at length about our favorite movies and we might still over a glass of wine or two.

    We put together a few pieces from our current collections that reflect that time, feeling and romance. Representing the mood are Hazel Brown, Place Nationale, and Pas De Calais.
