Hey fearless fashionistas! With 2015, coming to end a lot faster than you can blink, I decided to sit back and see what accomplishments have happened this year. So many great things that have happened to BLB that we actually are excited to celebrate 2016 in a big way. Just to jog your memory, you may remember a few months back when Shonda Rhimes was selected as our #wcw. She created her own lane and has really made a name for herself in the entertainment industry. She also appears to be a bad ass who takes no BS from no one (that’s the vibe I get anyway) and that’s definite WCW material to me! In the post, I mentioned a book she wrote called, My Year Of Yes. She indicated the book was inspired by her decision to say, yes, to all unexpected invitations. Saying yes, when she may have said no, took her career to another level.
I was so inspired by this, that I decided to follow her lead and add the “say yes” decision while still trying to live a fearless lifestyle. It’s only been a few months, but in a short time, BLB has reached new heights! Here are a few things that have popped off so far:
We had were in our first runway show. If you missed it, check out our YouTube Channel for backstage footage.
We started a kick ass web show called, Style Files Of A Fearless Chic. Style & beauty tips on under a minute. Seriously, you have to check it out…it’s awesome!
We opened a holiday popup shop for a shopping event being gel in San Antonio. Our mission was to create a small shopping space within a 4,000 square foot building. The event is being held until 11/19. It is located at 231 E. Houston, so stop by and shop with us…if you just happen to be in the area. We were given about a week to put the space together however due to circumstances beyond our control, we did it in one day. Here are some pics of the fun space that we created:
As you can see, the space was just concrete floors and white walls.
We took 11 wood planks and created a L-shaped wall. We covered the back with thick white fabric.
I wanted to create my idea of the dream closet for the space. So after creating the faux wall, we used outlines, drawn by my nephew, to create the inside of the closet. After filling the clothing racks, adding our signature blue hangers and a shabby chic rug, we were ready to go. What do you think?
And our final announcement is that there is now a Blue Labels Boutique Pop up shop! Not a holiday shopping event, an actual popup that will be available for YOU to shop for the next 3 months. If you want to feel and smell all things BLB…you can. Wanna play dress up? Now you can right in the store! Our new pop up is located in a historical area of San Antonio called La Villita. It’s a row of houses that were built in the 1800s, known as one of the first neighborhoods in San Antonio. Stay tuned…the pics are coming shortly. Let me know what you think of the exciting updates!
