All over the place...

...with my mind racing. I'm at the beach this weekend just trying to take it easy. I don't know if it's excitement, anxiety, or just me allowing my checklists to get out of hand, but my mind has been racing. I'm quickly putting things into perspective and prioritizing what's important to me...I can't do everything....but I damned sure try! The funny this is...and I say this to people all of the time...I absolutely LOVE everything that I am involved in. Getting the boutique open is my primary focus right now and the end is near! It is almost two weeks from opening day I am so ready! The support has been tremendous and the learning is non-stop. My eye for fashion is only growing sharper and my passion for designing is only growing deeper. There are so many things that I want to do and it's hard containing myself! I think this is when my mind just gets out of control and begins to pedal faster than I can keep up with. My notebooks of ideas and thoughts are filling up to the point that I can barely keep them organized. I need an emergency latch to pull!! Lol!

I used to admire people who knew exactly what they wanted to be when they grew up because I never had a clue; but I don't anymore. Now, I have admiration for those that have many ideas and venture down the path to explore the unknown. I had no earthly idea that I would be where I am today just by embracing all of the things that have been planted into my mind that I should pursue. I guess I'll have to write a book ten years from now to tell you about the places my thoughts have taken. The phrase that is often quoted where I worship is "We were created to excel, not fail, that is your Devine potential." I believe that.

A Classy Closet was birthed from something given to me to give to my clients...

Things are coming together...

...this has been an undoubtedly fun-filled roller coaster ride!!! After I launched the website, the public's response was so positive that I became so motivated! I have learned so much and continue to learn more and more each day about the retail industry. I'll be honest and tell you that my only retail experience is from Lady's Footlocker back during my Marine Corps days in Jacksonville, NC. I worked there during a very interesting time in my life, but it all worked out. Now I am getting the opportunity to learn how to accept retail transaction in my own store. Yes, that's will soon be able to walk into A Classy Closet Boutique and discover that we are a trendy, yet affordable boutique that you should add to your places to shop on the weekends! Stay tuned for more information, but we hope to open our doors in early May.

In the meantime, merchandise is on our website and you can request specialty items by email or using the Contact Us page on our website. We have recently been contacted about providing jewelry for bridal parties. All bulk orders for bridal parties must be paid in full prior ordering.

Stay tuned for more information about our Grand Opening!
