Meet the team: Emma
We had to offer our own holiday picks, too! But first, we wanted to do a fun exercise: an abridged version of The Proust Questionnaire.
Emma is the Founder and Co-Owner of Hazel & Rose. She started the shop in the spring of 2016 after spending her career in corporate retail. When she's not working in the shop, Emma spends her time indulging in anything related to drag queens, participating in bar trivia with her lovably nerdy husband, taking videos of her two dogs, and performing. She made her Fringe debut this past summer and has plans to one day create an all-female Backstreet Boys cover band.

Emma's current favorites:
I love simplicity and versatility and this dress is both - it's four dresses in one! I love that it can easily be layered to dress down but looks so sleek and elevated on its own.
Skincare is my latest obsession (if you're on Instagram as often as I am, it feels like it's everyone's latest obsession) and these three products are an awesome starter kit for a skincare novice or essential add-ons to the seasoned skincare queen.
I can never say no to a good sweater, and this is a GOOD SWEATER. So soft and knit in a women-run factory in Peru. Classic perfection.
