I launched a Boutique!
I‘m seriously so excited! Never Skip Brunch is now more than a fashion and lifestyle blog and I’m more than an influencer….I’m a boutique owner. Today I’m dishing all about the new SHOP + sharing a little bit of the motivation behind my decision!
First, let me tell you about the shop! So, I’ve had the apparel line for a while with leggings and tee’s I designed myself. While many of you LOVED them and they were doing pretty well, it was always just kind of a tab on the blog that sometimes felt like it wasn’t getting the attention it deserved. I decided to re-launch the line, but this time as a whole boutique and move it to its own sub-domain at shop.neverskipbrunch.com.
The Never Skip Brunch boutique provides women’s apparel, accessories, and some select home goods. I carefully curate pieces I know you all will love that will be a perfect fit for your style. Not only do I intentionally pick products from amazing vendors to bring to you. I’ve also designed and created many of the products myself, like the leggings, mugs, pillows, and soon to launch candles & sugar scrubbies! You can find the shop HERE and on Instagram HERE — and yes, this hair scarf is there too.
Phase I is to get the e-boutique up and running and do some super cool pop-up shops around Denver — I have quite a few coming up for the holidays. Once the e-boutique is up and running, phase II will be looking at retail spaces to see if I can find the perfect spot. I’m not sure when that will happen timeline-wise, but I’ve already got my eye on a couple spots that might just be amazing.
why a boutique?So this has been a long time in the works — like years. As a serial entrepreneur, it took me a while to hone in on my personal brand and really create something that stuck. Part of that is because I have a lot of ideas — like a lot — and really see no reason why I shouldn’t try out every idea that comes to mind. I’m willing to bet on myself and work to make it a success, but also willing to learn if it doesn’t work out.
That mindset has led to oodles of things before Never Skip Brunch was born (and stuck) including an art blog, an online marketing business, and a previous e-commerce shop called Cara Diane + Co. I’ve pivoted away from all those endeavors because I learned what worked, what didn’t, and what I love. I have a passion for helping connect people with ideas & products that can benefit their everyday lives. Whether it’s just something that’s needed or whether its a way to help women feel empowered, confident, and beautiful.
I get to do that every day through blogging and sharing some of my favorite products, but I wanted to take it a step further and not just be a person to go to for advice but also a place women can come to find something that is just perfect for their personal style, adding personality to their home, or even giving as a gift.
There is something meaningful to me about creating these relationships where people know, like, and trust my recommendations and that’s why I decided to take my brand a step further and create a place for that to happen more directly. I love working with brands here on the blog and that will absolutely still be happening, but to have a place where you can come to get things I’ve carefully created and curated, is super special.
a little THANK YOU because you guys are amazing!
Wow. Writing that last paragraph I just teared up a little, because it hit me how amazing you all are. I am so blessed to have you along on this journey with me. I’m so honored you use this platform as a resource and a place to connect.
Every day I’m even more and more encouraged to serve you with my content — whether it’s the emails I get, the super positive DMs, or just amazing feedback. In building the blog, I’ve done my best to put you all first as my audience and craft content that truly benefits your lives and fulfills your needs. I’m so excited to take that a step through the boutique, and I have the same goals and intentions for being empowering and encouraging as I launch the shop.
Thank you guys SO MUCH for all your amazing support and engagement. It seriously means so much to me. I hope you’ll follow along with me on this new part of the journey, but I already know you’ll be right there with me because I seriously have the best followers out there.
