SILOBRATION AND SO MUCH MORE!

Let me just tell ya this, last Friday was the best day ever.

On a whim, Caroline brought up the Magnolia Silos last Tuesday. You know, the place Chip and Joanna Gaines totally redid in Waco, Texas! Well for the past two years they’ve thrown this epic art fair/concert—the Silobration! Artists and vendors from all over the country show up with their wares, ready to settle into the long, hot, wonderful weekend ahead! We started lurking hashtags on Instagram and blogs from the past years’ Silborations and we decided it sounded too good to miss! 


Well, I mean, we obviously missed the opportunity to have a booth..but what would we have done with a booth anyway!? I guess I could have given out sweaty hugs, and Kate could have taken photos and maybe we could have just had an epic dress up booth!? Ahh…I guess I’ll just put that in my back pocket for next year?! 

ANYWAY, Waco is basically in our backyard and we couldn’t find a reason not to go! And Miss Caroline had the gold star idea, AGAIN. She goes, “why don’t we go and just randomly hand out dresses?!” She knew I was on board before the question fell out of her mouth. We bounced around the office spreading the word— we were going to the Silos on Friday INSTEAD of the office. We were SO excited. The *short* countdown to SILOBRATION, MISSION: SPREAD THE LOVE began! 


Now for a quick confession, I have never watched Fixer Upper. Even back in the day when Denise and I would get screenshots of Joanna’s girls wearing our designs on the show, we never really hopped on the Fixer Upper train! But stepping into the Silos, I totally get the fascination with their talent, that’s for sure. Wow. It’s just a beautiful space! And filled with the friendliest of faces! You could just tell the whole establishment was a huge labor of love and I felt so lucky to bask in the beautiful event they cultivated. 

We packed up 27 outfits and dresses to hand out and hit the road early Friday AM. Our plan was just to walk up to Mama’s with little girls, and surprise them with a WF package! All the mama’s were so gracious and excited. Some stared at me like I was trying to sell them something at first, which was so funny to me, but I just kept nervously talking and eventually I spit out the fact that I just wanted to GIVE them a dress! There were lots of hugs shared and a few photos, too! We even met a little girl from Austin that we invited to our first Spring 2018 photoshoot that’s taking place later this November. 

We bought hats, tee’s that said howdy, plants, art, and even a mountain of brisket nachos. Margo turned heads everywhere she went in her first-ever Wildflowers outfit and honestly, spreading the love of Wildflowers felt better than I could have imagined. With each person I walked up to, I felt the same butterflies of nervousness build up, but every time I walked away the smile I had was bigger than before and that feeling is simply unmatched!! I love Wildflowers. I love our team, the clothes, the connections, the adventures we’ve had and will have… I love what we’ve built and I can’t believe I’m a part of it! Thank you all for allowing us to do what we we love! Thank you to all of our wonderful customers and friends, and especially those who take the time to host shows with our Consultants. I know it means the world to them (and us all!) that you invite them into your homes to share Wildflowers and support their growing independent business. 


We wanted to find a way to thank our hostesses with the mostest-ess, so we decided that this next release we’re gonna do something a little different! Release 4 Pop-Up Parties kick off next week and there will be not one but TWO hostess only items available…


Introducing The Polar Express Jacket and Sweet Celebration Dress looking extra fabulous on Vivi, one of our silliest little models!

Last but not least, I need to pick the winners from last weeks post!! Will JAMIE JACKSON, KATHLEEN RITTER, and HEATHER ROCHELLE MARTIN please email Andrea at andrea@wildflowersclothing.com? She will help get those cute messenger bags in your hands!

XO,

SAM

    I love your clothing line and I can’t wait to find a consultant and place an order for my little girl, Aspen Rayn! We have loved Matilda Jane and our baby girl is a brand rep, but I believe that we would and could love WF just as much. Looking forward to becoming a WF Fan!
