in a nutshell…

I apologize for the recent tumblr hiatus. It’s been a few days since we’ve blogged and that isn’t because we haven’t had lots of things to say.  It’s because we’ve been so incredibly busy.  Here was our weekend in a nutshell.

Saturday: We had a photoshoot with our friend Leigh Ann Nelson, of Leigh Ann Photography.  We started downtown and Leigh Ann photographed us in some of our favorite pieces from our fall collection—think beautiful dresses, scarves, blazers, hats, handbags, etc.  We asked our friend Heather to come along and do it with us and we are so glad we did…not only did she provide some comic relief, but her pictures turned out absolutely stunning (just as we suspected).  She’s got a gorgeous face with short jet black hair and she definitely missed her calling because she totally looked like a professional model.  **Leigh Ann came over last night to show us some of her top picks from the shoot and let me tell you, they are awesome. She is such a talented photographer with wonderful ideas so if you’re in the market for professional photography…look no further.  Oh and she’s a whiz at editing them, too! She’s in the process of getting a website up, so in the meantime, just contact me or Caroline to get more information on Leigh Ann.

Sunday: We spent the entire day working on pictures of our inventory and were really having a hard time learning photoshop.  It has been an uphill battle for us with this program for the last week or so. 

Skip to Monday and enter JT—the Godsend.  Our good friend JT (and awesome boyfriend of our bff, Erin) is a super smarty graphic designer and he has agreed to give us some lessons and work with us to help us master (haha—we’ll see about that) this pesky program, which has quickly become a thorn in both of our sides. 

Tonight we’re going to go to JT’s house and he’s going to coach us a bit on where we’re going wrong and teach us a few tricks of the trade…we couldn’t be more excited! We’re ready to launch this site and this is a major part of getting up and running. 

It looks like our launch date might have to be pushed back a couple of days, but that’s ok because we want to make sure everything is running smoothly before we go live.  We’ll keep you posted!

In other news, HAPPY 25th BIRTHDAY LAUREN DARE SHUPING! I’m looking in my crystal ball and for your birthday I see that you will soon have the best wedding ever (possibly around the 25th of this month) and marry the man of your dreams…do b-day presents get better than that?

Fingers & toes crossed that we soak up lots of knowledge tonight and can launch very very soon!
