After a long Holiday break, I’m back! And fulfilling all my orders from my Subscriber Sale. Thank you to all who signed up over the holidays - I’m so happy to be able to give you awesome deals while I was away!🎉 . And even though the Subscriber Sale has ended, the remaining sale items are still available on my...Sale Page👍🏾👍🏾 which hasn’t actually been on the shop site in a long time! So come visit before I’m sold out.
I’ve had a lot of space to think on this vacation, which I typically find hard to do when I’m out of my comfort zone. And yes, even a warm white sand beach with crystal waters is out of my comfort zone. . But the skies are really this blue here and the water is really this clear, and more importantly, I’ve been wanting to share so much with you about my work. But I haven’t figured out how to organize it all. 🧐 . What I and my fellow indie sustainable brands do on a daily basis to navigate the ethically murky waters of clothing manufacturing is a feat, let me tell you! But it’s not enough for us to just do it. . Shoppers should be fully educated by our transparency and feel empowered to use their knowledge to avoid participating in the negative affects of the clothing industry if they don’t want to. . Minimalism, sustainability, ethical manufacturing, they’ve become so important to me as a retailer and manufacturer. But these all become so much more impactful when the consumer is equally aware and involved. . Soooo lots of things to share, and continue to share with you all throughout the new year when I return to normal scheduled programming. I’m excited!
Theo and I didn’t “do gifts” this year for Christmas. We don’t typically. I guess we live such deliberate lives, focused mainly on what we love and each other that everyday feels very “giving” to me. Even indulgent. . You can unfollow me for that obnoxious statement I’ll understand.😬But it’s true! When I think of gifts, I tend to come up blank. 🤷🏾♀️ Plus, things give me anxiety - but y’all know that already. . I will say though that he does like to set up everything when we travel. Which is quite a gift because he’s just so good at it! And when I said I just want to relax and sleep with a good view, he nailed it. . I admit this morning did feel pretty festive and sparkly. Merry Christmas to you, @theomacabeo and Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate this day. 🎉🎄
This year, I tried something different. I took a vacation 🤯 In fact, presently I’m on vacation for an entire month! 🎉🍾 . I’m so grateful to still be in business and entering into my 3rd and a half year!🙏🏽and I’m also grateful for all the (sometimes crushing) lessons I’ve learned along the way. One big lesson is taking time off. An easy concept for some but a challenging one for yours truly. . As we’re about to enter a new decade, Ive decided to begin 2020 a little kinder to myself. And more compassionate to my own ebb and flow. As much as I hate to admit it, I’m not a machine. Besides, it’s time I be the ceo I always wished I’d had. . So hopefully, this month long vacay will be the start of a ritual I allow myself to enjoy every year. And also, a time for you to enjoy as well because... . While I’m gone, I’m having a SALE 🥰And it’s actually going on right now. Why haven’t I announced it? Pssst! It’s for subscribers only. So if you’d like to shop Tiny Closet deals while I’m away, hit that subscribe link in my bio and get instant access to my private Subscriber Sale 🎷 I just thought my lovely insta-followers should know. And also, what’s one bad habit you’d finally like to let go of going into this new decade?
It’s taken some time for me to figure out how to dress festively for the Winter holidays🎄in this Cali desert weather 🌵🤔 but with some sparkly accessories, I feel like I managed to fit a lil wintry elegance in ☺️ . Yes, even though The Holiday Dress is sold out, I’ve had some fun making The Day Tripper Capsule Dress into a versatile holiday piece to wear right now. And that actually goes the same for a ton of other special seasonal items from my shop. . But speaking of right now, new orders are still shipping before Christmas! Can you believe it?! Soooo if you’re planning to wear a Tiny Closet piece for Christmas, or planning to give a Tiny Closet gift 🎁, you’ve still got time. All orders placed by Monday the 16th will be received BEFORE Dec 25th 👍🏾👍🏾😘
I bought an entire roll of gorgeous dress fabric about a year ago, prepared to design a beautiful holiday dress. The design never ended up making it to production and I was so bothered that I’d bought all that fabric just to have it sit around. The minimalist in me was burdened by this waste, to say the least. . Last week however, I decided to whip up a new dress for myself to wear to a few festive parties. Long loose sleeves, slimming lines and a deep v - modeled after my best selling Day Tripper dress actually. And surprisingly, my little project came out much better than expected. The dress came out beautifully! . My new design turned out so well that I realized I could share it with you. And finally this gorgeous fabric would have a use, and be apart of more than just my Tiny closet. . Anyway, The Holiday Dress as I call it, is a limited special piece available now. I absolutely love it! ❤️ And I hope you do too!
