I’m not quite sure how I found out about Lara Casey and Emily Ley, but I sure am glad that I did. When I discovered the “Making Things Happen” workshop I knew it was something that I would LOVE to attend in order to get myself in gear with Yellow Dress Boutique and my life in general. So when it was announced that the 2013 Making Things Happen conference would be held close to Raleigh, in Chapel Hill I was elated. I knew that it was a sign, so I thought about it and prayed about it and decided to Make. It. Happen. And so I did.
I am pleased to announce, that I will be attending the 2013 “Making Things Happen” intensive which is “an intensive designed to fire you up and get you on a powerful path to making big things happen in life and in business.”
I am so excited to head to Carolina Inn in March to hear what some of the most inspirational ladies (in my opinion) of branding have to say. I can’t wait to see the changes that I’m sure will be in store for Yellow Dress Boutique are going to be. I’m already feeling so inspired, the minute I submitted my registration, I just felt so… inspired. And ready. Ready to make things happen. Ready to do, ready to be – well you get the picture. I am so ready.
With the launch of Yellow Dress Boutique website, getting closer and closer, it’s time that I start thinking about things I want to stock. I’m actually going to be hosting a buying party with some of my friends, where I will show them things I’m thinking of stocking and they can tell me YAY! or NAY!
It only makes sense to carry Spring arrivals since the website will be launching in early April (dream date, April 1st).
So here is what I’m thinking:
Bright colors – source
Understated religious pieces – source
Fashionable basics – source
Fun and flirty – source
Unique prints – source
Sweet and whimsical – source
What are your thoughts? Anything that you would like to see?
Well, it’s been quite a week. I don’t know if you noticed, but Yellow Dress Boutique has a logo!!! WOOHOO!!!!!
I have to say a HUGE thank you to my friend (old roommate) Erica for designing it. She is so great for doing this for me, because goodness knows I am extremely indecisive. I’m so glad to have settled on a logo (finally) and this means I’m just one step closer to launch (woohoo!).
Just being able to cross one thing off my list makes me enormously happy. I still have quite a way to go – but the logo means I can finally start ordering some marketing materials.
I have alot to do but I am 100% determined and ready to launch.
So… Remember when I poured my heart out to you about logos and color decisions? And then changed my mind?
My sweet friend, who I have been working with (ok, she’s doing all the work, I’m just being indecisive) – well, we’re getting closer to exactly what I had in mind. At this point, I think we just have a few different alignment changes and a font change (but who knows). I really appreciate being able to work with my good friend who is a graphic designer, because she will honestly tell me what looks like crap and what doesn’t (and believe me, she doesn’t hold back). I’m really, really, really hoping that we can finalize the logo this weekend because it would be great to cross something off my list during my birthday weekend (my 25th bday is Friday, February 1st – eek 25). Speaking of to-do lists, mine is OVER a page long for Yellow Dress Boutique – that’s alot of stuff to do before April 1st!
The “big day” that I eluded to in the title, is actually because I got information about a hearing I have to attend in order to be able to run Yellow Dress Boutique the way that I want to! I’m very excited to have confirmation because, it means I’m just one step closer to being able to launch – and that’s exciting!!!!!!
Tell me : What are you excited about?
