About a year and a half ago I locked myself in a room with a handful of the most brilliant women on the planet, (The Land of Nod buying and development team) to imagine our fall 2012 collection – my expectations were ridiculous. I wanted everything to change. I wanted to amp up the color palette, I wanted new product categories, new artists to design products, I wanted to see trend, and I wanted more cleverness, more nostalgia, better quality, and more exclusive product.
In short I wanted everything, and I wanted it for the Fall 2012 season. After 18 grueling months of travelling, negotiating, reviewing, editing, changing, crying, editing, laughing, crying and reviewing again – I am so pleased to introduce to you The Land of Nod 2012 Fall Collection. The creation of this assortment was truly a labor of love from all of us here at Nod. And we made it just for you. I hope you like it.

Aside from being the Managing Director of The Land of Nod, mother to four kids (yes I said FOUR!) and a gourmet cook, Michelle is a retail junky. From Zara to Marc Jacobs, Target to Nordstroms, she doesn’t discriminate, there’s room in her heart and closet for them all. And the addiction doesn’t stop at fashion, she’s painted her dining room at least 5 times, and changes rugs like most women change their sheets. Retail isn’t therapy for Michelle, it’s more like oxygen.
