Check out all about Pamela below, how she started Select 7 (such a great story) and her so chic style!!
1) Here’s a little introduction of Pamela and Select 7
Pamela Schein Murphy, Founder + Creative / Editorial Director, The Select 7, a curated lifestyle website that unlocks the world of today’s tastemakers by exploring their 7 Select interests within the worlds of philanthropy, food, wellness + beauty, travel, fashion, interior design and social media + technology.
2) Tell us a little about yourself, your passions, what lead you to select 7 and anything else you want to share!
Starting The Select 7 was really kind of an accident. I’m a huge researcher and I love to plan. About three years ago I curated a trip to Paris for a friend’s birthday and it was on the last night of that trip that one of my friends told me I should start a blog. I answered with a resounding no: the idea of a blog wasn’t all that appealing to me. My daughter (she was 12 at the time), said, what about a website? And that struck a chord because it felt like something I could really create: the design, the words, the topics. She actually started the website for me that year for Mother’s Day and I took it over and started playing around with the idea of curation and recommendations, of sharing information, and it turned into The Select 7.
3) Tell us about your style.
My main goal in life is to figure out how to always be comfortable while also not looking like I never change out of my PJs. So maybe my style is sweatsuit chic?
4) What’s to come and what are goals you’re working on? (Anything new with projects or that you want to share)
The Select 7 is still relatively new and I’m just really working on getting the word out! We have some really exciting guests coming up who I’m excited to share and we’re launching a podcast, The Select Sessions in the next few months that will bring our guests off the page and into real life.
Thank you Pamela for sharing! Go follow her and check her out! And if you love this comment or leave us a Yap below!!
Happy TrendsTues®️ loves. We wanted to take a few of our favorite trends for the season and share them with you this week. There are so many to choose from, but our faves include: Sexy chic animal print, cute cropped pants, fierce fringe, the feminine midi dress, statement earrings, and the floppy hat.
Each one of these items will not only give your overall look the extra push that it needs, but you will be on trend and will definitely make a statement.
Let’s start with the animal print trend. Snakeskin looks good in any form, whether that be on a fitted sexy top, swimsuit, shoes, or skirts, you will look chic and sexy.
Next, the cropped pant. No matter what body type, these cute pant will carry you from day to night with ease. Wear a casual tee and sneakers, or a cute top and throw on a wedge for night out!
Up next, the feminine yet sexy midi dress. Again, you can dress up or down by adding the right jewelry and shoe. Sneakers or sandals for casual and wedges or heels for night out.
Now let’s talk fringe! Whether you are going to Coachella part 2 this weekend, or just having drinks with the girls, throw on a chic fringe jacket over a crop top or plain white tee with denim shorts and boom, you are fierce.
Next, a fab statement earring. You can dress up any simple look with a fun earring. There’s something about earrings that will just make a whole look pop! Color is definitely in!
Last but not least, the floppy hat. This cute hat will save you on a bad hair day, or if your outfit just needs that extra touch. Also great for Coachella round 2:)
Do you search the web to see all the celebs in their Coachella fashion? Well, we have 2 looks from Coachella 2019 that will carry you to more fun Summer activities this season. Whether you have a chic pool party to attend, or a birthday bash night out, these looks will definitely make a statement.

Happy Friday dolls! Ali was super excited and grateful to feature Jola and her story below.
As you know Ali lost her grandmother (Dodo) to lymphoma and this woman’s amazing story and passion really resonates with her and us.
Read on below all about Jola.
1) Tell us about yourself!
My name is Jola Rothman (pronounced “yo-la”). This business began as an opportunity for me to raise money for a cause I’m passionate about. Last year I ran for and won Woman of the Year for my local Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, raising $158,000. As a part of my fundraising efforts, my friend and I knitted and sold almost 100 hats in two months. It was fun to knit beautiful and luxurious hats and seeing people enjoying them and feeling great while wearing them. After the campaign, people continued to request hats from me, so Birch Hats was born!

All Birch Hats are unique as they are hand-knitted in the United States with great attention to detail. Birch Hats are made with luxury wools and real fur pom poms made of recycled materials. These hats are perfect for everything from a weekend in Vail to a casual stroll in the city!
Birch Hats started on Feb 28 2019 which would have been my Mom’s 80 Birthday
2) Your career/background?
In my late teens and early twenties I was a model working for an agency in Cracow, Poland. I was hired by the Satchi and Satchi agency to film a Head & Shoulders commercial shot in Madrid, did runway work for several international designers including Paco Rabanne, and had a small part in Schindler’s List, which was filmed mostly in Cracow. I got to be directed by Steven Spielberg and kiss Liam Neeson on camera! Later, I worked for the hair product company Wella in regional sales and owned a hair salon. After getting married and moving to the States, I worked at an Interier design company in Washington, D.C. and managed the Georgetown Pottery Barn store.
3) Your passions/what inspires you?
I am passionate about cooking, baking, gardening, knitting, living a healthy lifestyle and of course travel! I love yoga and meditation. I love nature and the beauty that comes with it. I am inspired by the success of other women!
4) Your style/3 words to describe it and why?
Urban simplicity, classic elegance, workout chic. As a busy mother of 3 who also has a love for fashion and aesthetic, it’s important for me to dress for all of the challenges that face me in my crazy daily life, but to look and feel good while I’m doing it. As a European, I grew up in an environment where fashion was really celebrated, and that has stuck with me!
