At The Southern C, our demographics span the creative spectrum, from interior designers to product designers, from clothing store owners to bloggers, from PR companies to photographers.

We want to promote this mix by having members give us a lighthearted sneak peek at the tools they not only use in their trade, but in their lives as women who work.  #womenatwork

Recently, #tscsummit alum Breckyn Alexander opened up her bag of tricks (literally) and talked to us about the tools and products she uses every day as a designer, shop owner, and woman on the go.

 

ARE YOU AN EARLY RISER OR A NIGHT OWL?

Night owl. I rely on my Ray-Ban sunglasses to bring me into the light of day.

 

HOW DO YOU START YOUR DAY?

I read “the Skimm” in bed and flip through Instagram. Then coffee, coffee, coffee–a minimum of three cups.

 

HOW DO YOU END YOUR DAY?

A glass of wine while watching Star Wars in bed with my boys. We snuggle up in an alpaca blanket from my store, BMA At Home.

 

FAVORITE THING ABOUT THE SOUTH?

Thank you notes. I carry notes by Leslie Snipes, an artist in my store. I write them for every purchase that goes out.

 

MOST UNUSUAL ITEM(S) IN YOUR BAG?

Chalk and painters tape for marking potential locations of art and furniture.

 

BEST BUDGET FIND YOU USE EVERYDAY?

For my interiors projects, I write everything down, and I love a basic $0.47 composition notebook. I buy them in bulk, so they are likely even cheaper. I carry a cute Kate Spade notebook for my personal lists.

 

BIGGEST SPLURGE YOU USE EVERYDAY?

Besides my SUV to haul around furniture, fabric bolts, and all my child’s gear, it’d have to be my Nespresso coffee maker.

 

PRODUCT THAT SAVES YOU THE MOST TIME?

Moroccan Oil shampoo and conditioner. No lie, when I use this stuff, I can go five days without washing my hair. However, if you want to use conditioner, you have to use Moroccan Oil brand as well. I don’t know why, but it works, so I accept it.

 

MOST VERSATILE WARDROBE STAPLE?

My vintage Donna Karan Black Label lambskin jacket. I wear it over dresses, skirts, jeans and pants. I haven’t tried it with sweats, but it would probably work with them, too.
