This is it! The Season 3 finale of The Real Show podcast series, featuring Inspiring and Influential Women! This week, host and RY founder Amy Edwards was uber-thrilled to finally sit down with Austin-based artist and visionary Flip Solomon. Flip is an ethereal, horizon-expanding woman who marches to her own beat, goes beyond this dimension and is just a generally fascinating individual.
We are thrilled to have Flip on as the finale to the Inspiring and Influential Women series. She is a thriving artist with a stunning and distinct style, and on top of that, she's a single mom who manages life with intense sleep disorders. She also shares her manifestation rituals, lets everyone in on where she finds inspiration, and tells us about the interesting and cool projects she's working on currently, among lots of other cool stuff.
Flip is one of those people that you could talk to for hours, because she's extremely knowledgeable, incredibly enlightened, and kind. So, that said, we kinda went over the 30-minute rule on this episode. Find the usual shortcuts listed below, but you've got the rest of summer to listen to this full episode, and to all the other wonderful interviews! The Real Show remains free and always available on Stitcher, iTunes, or Libsyn; click to download it, or stream below. And we're off with Flip:
Don't miss checking out Flip's stunning art on her website, and follow her on Instagram or Facebook at The Art of Flip Solomon. You can also find her at her studio in Austin, located in Canopy, Studio 201 (Canopy is also the hub for the East Austin Studio Tours in November, so it's a great destination for EAST).
We're deep into Season 3 of The Real Show podcast, featuring Inspiring and Influential Women! Only two episodes left, and in this week's episode, #8, host and RY founder Amy Edwards has an outdoor chat over rosé with bad-ass boss-lady Masha Poloskova, a game changer in the Austin vintage, resale, and modern clothing scenes. Masha owns Moss Designer Consignment and Garment Vintage + Modern, and was an original founder of Feathers on South Congress.
We were thrilled to have Masha join us on the Inspiring and Influential Women series. She has incredible advice as a business owner and she is a true fashion lover. She tells us about the realities of having a brick-and-mortar and shares killer business tidbits, like the number one crucial element in business for her. And of course, we discuss fashion and vintage and the ones that got away!
This podcast was recorded while sitting outside at the beautiful Hotel St Cecilia, so there's a lot of wind noise (we'll call it "outdoor realism enhancement"), but grab your glass of rosé and join... you'll feel like you're sitting right there! Shortcuts are below, but the idea is to listen to the whole thing over lunch- or that aforementioned drink, of course! And as usual, The Real Show is free and available on Stitcher, iTunes, or Libsyn; click to download it, or listen below. So let's roll, and hear all Masha has to share, while blowin' in the wind!
Learn more about all things Masha- and peruse her incredible vintage finds- at Garment online or in person, at 701-F South Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX, 78704, or follow them on Instagram or Facebook, or find Moss as well!

It’s inherent in the title: rockSTAR. Stars create their own burning light.
Review and maintain the habits you’ve built, and keep up with those little things that accumulate more often than not. And remember, motion is always better than stagnation. As long as you are learning something, that can be viewed as success. You got through this 30 days, and that in itself is success!
You hold the power to create your rocking life! And you deserve the best that life has to offer! Shine on, ROCKSTAR!
Today, we write our Will Manifesto. Wanting can be irritating, because it feels like wishing. But by simply changing one word, all those things become reality rather than a dream.
Think about how much more power these statements have with ‘will’ as you start your own Will Manifesto:
I will work harder today.
I will only compete with myself.
I will lift others up.
I will be the bigger person.
I will step outside my comfort zone.
I will follow my own path.
I will ignore fear.
I will believe in my own magic.
I will ROCK life in the way only I can!
