And the New Chapter Begins

9 Apr 2017 at 2:13pm

I have officially closed my brick and mortar shop. I'm actually quite relieved. It has been more headache than it has been reward. The one thing I have learned through the process of having my second store is that I really don't want to do it again.

I don't like the commitment it takes to be open and to deal with customers face to face. It severely hinders my ability to do what I really love to do, which is design and teach.

Another positive thing I learned out of this is how to properly handle inventory control and shipping processes. My online business has grown significantly from the corner of my closet 7 years ago to now require about a 400 square foot storage space to house it all. I am looking forward to designing my ideal work space and storage space for my order fulfillment once we find our next home.

I am now placing all my focus on the house. I've been packing up the house while packing up the store. I've had to get a few missing furniture pieces to help stage the house at the same time of finishing renovations. Its loads of fun.

I'm not sure when the next chapter will begin, but the old chapter is closed. Our next steps will be to sell our house, move across the country and get settled in our new home. Its fun, but also stressful.

On another note, David and I are lucky enough to be traveling to Croatia and Bosnia at the end of the month for a work trip for David. I'm excited to see sights that are my store.

Here is a picture of my baby girl standing in front our mess of a store from a week ago.

Introduction to My New Wires

18 Feb 2017 at 2:30pm

I finally found a little segment of time to film my introduction to the new vertical flat wires I am carrying. Pardon my appearance. I wasn't planning of doing the video yesterday, but I saw 15 minutes that were available to me.

This video gives a little detail on the differences of the most standard wires used - regular underwires and vertical underwires. After explaining the differences, I explain why I created the vertical flat. I'm still nailing down which size is most appropriate for me.

In traditional sizing, I am recommended to wear a 54 wire. In my testing, the 52 vertical flat fit well and barely moved on me, but once I was driving, I did feel it moving down a bit. I did not alter the bra pattern. I just switched out the wires, so its probably a combination of the pattern and possibly I need to try the 50 vertical flat.

I named these wires myself because I was the one that created them. I'm still hashing out the recommended bra sizes to wear these, so if you test them out, let me know what size worked for you (as well as what size is recommended for you in traditional charts).
