Hi everyone! I am super excited to share my second podcast interview with the amazing sister-duo Lauren Dudley Stephens and Kaki Dudley McGrath, the two co-founders of Dudley Stephens. They launched the company with their iconic flagship Cobble Hill Turtleneck Fleece in 2015 which immediately had success because they are comfortable, timelessly stylish, eco-friendly, durable, and last upon wear.  They have had so much success with their flagship fleeces that they now have expanded the business tremendously by including dresses, pants, outerwear products for men and children and so much more.

Throughout our interview, they take us on their incredible journey over the past 5+ years. They touch on the high points, such as partnering up with Gwyneth Paltrow’s company Goop, being featured in Oprah Magazine, their partnership with Tuckernuck and so many other major milestones.

As always, they also are incredibly humble and down-to-earth and not afraid to share their setbacks, such as how they navigated the impacts of COVID-19. I hope you all enjoy my conversation with these amazing sisters as much as I did!

Hi everyone! Given that I am from Philadelphia, I absolutely love when I have the opportunity to feature Philadelphia entrepreneurs. So today I am excited to share my conversation with my friends Neely and Chloe Burch who were both born and raised right outside Philadelphia.

Neely (27) and Chloe (26) are sisters and they come from a long line of family members in the fashion industry including their dad and uncle (who started Eagle’s Eye), their cousins Louisa and Pookie Burch (who started Trademark), and of course their aunt—the one and only Tory Burch. In the fall of 2016, Neely and Chloe decided to pave their own path in the fashion industry and launched “Neely and Chloe” in NYC which features a wide variety of affordable go-to accessories, such as handbags, wallets, footwear and so much more! I purchased my weekender bag a few weeks ago and I use it every single day!

Throughout our conversation, Neely and Chloe tell us all about their entrepreneurial journey as sisters. We talk about “a-ha!” moments (i.e., when their product was featured on Oprah’s Top 100 List), navigating the fundraising world, how they deal with setbacks, and so much more. Stand by: this sister duo is on to something so incredible. I can’t wait to watch them continue to grow and explode in the fashion industry!
