02 May Full Circle
It’s crazy, CRAZY to me how things come full circle. Here I am sitting in Austin, TX – a city that Denise and I visited 7 years ago during a photo shoot for a new brand we were prepping to launch, The Good Ones. I remember walking South Congress and being mesmerized by how ALIVE and COLORFUL everything was. I remember laying in bed with her that night and telling her that if I EVER moved ANYWHERE, it would be here! And she looked at me with that sparkle in her eye and said “maybe someday we can work that out.”
And here I am. Sitting at my desk in an office filled with kindred spirits (truly, if we could have ‘a sisterhood of the traveling pants’ we would), reeling over all the changes, challenges, and CHANCES it took to get me here. To get us all here! I mean, we just launched our last release of our first ever Spring collection. You only get so many firsts in life, right?! I may be biased, but I think we knocked this ‘first’ outta the park! Best Day Ever was more than I could have imagined and everything I could hope for…
We had over 80 NEW prints! We tried over 60 completely NEW styles. We even traveled for a WF shoot for the first time (aren’t those photos on the beach amazing?!)! I feel like we conquered the world this season. Or at least our little colorful corner of the world!
Sometimes this all feels like a dream. Like, when am I going to wake up in Indiana again!? But that ain’t happening…this is ALL real and I feel like it’s just going to get better and better as we learn and grow!
Ahh, I can’t wait to see what your favorites were from this release. Heck, I can’t wait to see what your favorites are from the entire collection of Best Day Ever!! Ooooo, how about you guys post your fave style from all 4 spring releases, a quick note on why it’s your fave, and we’ll pick a couple of y’all for a special little surprise?!
P.S. So…now that our last Spring release is out there… Does this mean we can start sneaking Fall!? 🙂 I know, I know…TOO SOON SAM!
