Meet Momoko, a mother of two + fur baby, who makes time to help several Bay Area non-profits. Can we say #bossmom? We visited her lovely apartment in San Francisco to find out how she resets.
Describe your personal style in three words?
Elevated, everyday, extra (because sometimes I like to be a little extra).
What’s your favorite Reset piece and why?
I love the everyday collar shirt in ivory. It feels like silk, but is machine-washable. I feel instantly put together, even when I throw it on with jeans.
What do you say to yourself when sh*t hits the fan?
“You can do anything with the right shade of lipstick.” I can’t take credit for coming up with this – a woman I admire said it once and it stuck.
What’s your favorite song to Reset your day?
Lately, “The Story” by Brandi Carlile. But it changes often!
When’s the last time you hit the Reset button?
I’ve hit reset a number of times since we left NYC and my luxury fashion merchandising career for San Francisco: I became a mom, we survived my daughter’s cancer, and I became very active in San Franciscan nonprofits like the San Francisco Ballet, the Edgewood Auxiliary which helps abused, neglected, and traumatized children, and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital where my daughter was treated to help other families navigate their cancer treatment.
And if you weren’t doing your current career, what would you be doing?
I’m choosing to be where I am now. We’ll see what comes next!
Help Momoko support other families (because we all need a little help sometimes) by learning about Edgewood Auxillary, a non-profit that helps children in need.
