Being a blogger in the DMV, I’ve met many stylish and ambitious like-minded creatives. Lacey Faeh is one of those people. When I decided to start blogging I was beyond excited to join the DMV blogging group, CapFABB. Meeting Lacey, the co-founder of the group, was a joy. I admired she and her colleague for creating a group dedicated to bringing area bloggers/creatives together to “collaborate, learn and grow”.
As the years went on, I began to follow A Lacey Perspective and through her posts and attending the CapFABB meetups/classes, I found myself learning so much about both style and blogging. She’s an excellent content creator and has a knack for helping bloggers reach their full potential. I’m sure you’ll find her interview interesting and motivating. Enjoy!
What’s a typical day for Lacey?
There is no such thing as a typical day for me. From A Lacey Perspective to my consulting to CapFABB each day there is something new that I need to tackle. Most days start with a latte and reading through blogs. Followed by emails galore. Second half of my day is dedicated to my clients whether it is logo/site redesign, photography, meetings on site or digital strategy. The last steps of my is dedicated to my blog and CapFABB. Last but definitely not least… wine. Lots of wine.
What inspired you to create A Lacey Perspective, CapFABB & ALP Consulting?
The blog is about to hit its 5 year anniversary and I cannot believe it! I started the blog because I felt like DC needed help on the style front and I was in need of a place to feel creative back in my politico days.
CapFABB just turned 4 and we now have over 500 members! It is insane! Shameless plug… you should definitely join! CapFABB was something I felt the DC blogging community needed, a place where we can all come together, learn from one another and show the world that DC has style bloggers with unique voices.
ALP Consulting is my newest baby. Almost 3 years old and was created when I realized there are so many small businesses here in DC who don’t know of the power a social presence can have. I worked in the digital space in politics for over 5 years so my experience has translated beautifully to restaurants, malls and boutiques. One other arm of ALPC is helping bloggers make their blogs a business. This part is such a blast! I love brainstorming with clients about how to take their blog to the next level and share my experiences. Lastly, one of my favorite services, is styling. There is nothing better than helping a woman realize the potential in her closet or find a that perfect dress for an upcoming event.
Who are your top 3 women inspirations, famous or non-famous, and why?
My mother for her strength. Michelle Obama for her perfect blending of fashion and leadership. Olivia Palmemo for her impeccable style.
One piece of advice you have for women entrepreneurs?
Just jump! Whether you are looking to blog or start your own small business they only way to see if it will work is to give it a shot. So stop over analyzing all the ways it can go wrong and dive in head first!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see ALPC growing to a medium size digital firm with clients of all varieties and sizes.
