28 Feb ONE HAPPY CHICK
Word on the street is you guys are digging release 2?! You have no idea what a relief that is. Ha, and now I can begin to worry about Spring 3… It’s a bit different. But more on that later!
Sooo… This was a BIG release! HUGE, actually. Did you notice all of the little novelties and vintage-y florals? What about those little peeps!! Omg, I used to eat those UP during Easter as a kid, so I had to add a nod to those too-sweet-for-life marshmallow chicks. I wonder, what is your favorite part about this release? I have a feeling it’s the rainbows. And I cannot blame you for that! They’re so darn HAPPY. Actually, that’s what I love most about this release…how HAPPY it all feels.
And if you know me, happy is what I’m all about. I remember being a senior in high school and being asked “what do you want to be when you grow up” and my response was always “happy.” I never had any expectations of making lots of money or owning fancy cars one day… Heck, I would have never even uttered the words “designer” back then. And now that seems like a century ago. How lucky am I to say that I grew up to be what I always wanted to be? HAPPY.
ANYWAY. Something that made me down right giddy was watching Margo model these precious bubbles! When I started Spring, you KNOW I was SO ready to design baby bubbles. I mean, what else was Margo going to wear all Spring and Summer long?! So seeing her in them at the shoots has been pretty indescribable. My cutest creation + the little works of art I’ve been making for years = total magic.✨ It’s been fun dabbling in different designs and different fabrications. For this release I tried 2 different french terry styles and one woven! It’s been interesting striking the balance between too many details for a little baby (I never want to overwhelm the MOST adorable part of any outfit…the child!) and enough to make it feel special, so special your babe HAS to have it! But I guess that’s the tricky part when I design anything… Striking that balance!
I think I’ve said this before, but this Spring is really like a big ol’ (BEAUTIFUL) science experiment for me. I tried SO many different things, updated designs from my past, and kinda re-defined what our releases look like. I can’t wait to show you what I mean in Spring 3 with a fresh batch of “smooth like water” colors! Ahhh…broken record time, but…I CAN’T WAIT TO SHOW YOU. I’m so HAPPY I get try all of these new fabrics, colors, styles, etc., with you!! You know that quote that goes “What if I fall? Oh, but my darling what if you fly?” I feel like that sums up this little dream come true to me. I’m always worried I’ll fall, but y’all always make me feel like I can fly.
Thank you SO MUCH for that. The best is yet to come, trust me!
