Last month, I went to a New Balance event at the Lucy Moses School at Kaufman Center. It was to celebrate the launch of their Peanuts kids’ footwear collection that’s being released this fall. I went primarily for two reasons:
1. Isabel Kallman invited me. I really like her and we have a lot of (pre-mom) school and career similarities. (We both went to Columbia. We both worked at Smith Barney.)
