Meet Kaylah, blogger at The Dainty Squid!

Kaylah is one of our favorite bloggers at The Dainty Squid, and we keep coming back for her cute outfits, bold mixing of pattern and color, cute nail tutorials, and beautiful photos from her wooded home in Ohio. We asked her five quick questions in 140 characters or less—read on and get to know Kaylah, and check out her blog, The Dainty Squid!

Hello Holiday: Who are you and what are you all about?
Dainty Squid: I’m Kaylah, the lady behind The Dainty Squid. I’m a thrifting-obsessed girl with candy-colored hair from Ohio.

HH: What’s the best treasure you found in your most recent goodie-gathering expedition?
DS: I just found the cutest little desk that fits perfectly in an empty corner of my living room. Only $15, I’m pretty excited!

HH: Besides your online vintage shop, what new endeavors are you currently cooking up?
DS: I’m currently working on making The Dainty Squid a more inspiring space, it’s a never ending project (that I really, really enjoy!)

HH: From your blog you seem like a big nature-lover. How does your love of the outdoors inform your personal style?
DS: My personal style is all about being comfortable and being able navigate the areas I’ll be exploring while still looking cute.

HH: If you couldn’t be a blogger, what other job would you love to take a crack at?
DS: I would really love to work behind the scenes at the natural history museum - doing research, preparing exhibits and all that fun stuff.

Hello Holiday meets the Big Plate

Last month Todd Long from The Big Plate interviewed Hello Holiday co-founder Megan Hunt about our launch. It’s full of personal, well-worded questions and a lot of insight about the direction and strategy behind Hello Holiday! Here’s an excerpt:

TBP:  What was the hardest part of building out an e-commerce model?

MH: Maybe the hardest part was trying to predict the behavior of our customers–what is the eye drawn to first on the page? How do people like to check out and complete the payment process? How do they share?  How do they open their packages? And, HOW CAN WE BUILD THAT? Coming up with interactive strategies is hard. Building it is harder. I think people will notice continuous development and upgrades on our website.
