Thanksgiving is only a few days away, can you believe it? I surely can’t! Filling our bellies with comfort food and laughing with family are only a few things to look forward to. But Thanksgiving is much more than that. For me, it’s a time to express gratitude in a bigger way for the little (and big things) that have happened throughout the year. Yep, Turkey Day seems to create a warm and fuzzy feeling that will have you joyously singing from rooftops.
2016 has been a tremendous year for Fashion Not Fear, take a look at 5 things we are giving thanks for…
Helping Save Babies – Did you know babies born to women of color are almost 3x’s greater to be born with defects or worse than the statistic of other ethnicities. The Birthing Project is a non-profit organization that is helping to change that through free childbirth education, mentorship, professional labor support, and breastfeeding education. We were excited and grateful to partner up with them by donating a giftcard & Spiral Midi Ring to help their project raise money during their Benefit Auction on 11/12/2016.
Getting Social – BLB and FNF are both fairly new to the social media game. But since joining we are have really enjoyed being social with our followers. And we are sooooooo grateful for our 400+ IG followers, 200+ Twitter followers, 550+ FB followers and over 150 FNF followers. Thanks for taking time out of your day to read our blog, like a photo, leave a comment, etc. You’re truly appreciated!
Cancelled Shows – We are thankful for two shows being cancelled at the last minute. Yes, I said that I am thankful that 2 big fashion shows were cancelled. BLB was scheduled to hit the runway in back to back shows. One in Missouri and the other in Nebraska. On the date that we were about to hit the road, I received an email with the following subject line: “Don’t come…” At the time, it was the absolute worst thing that could ever happen. All of the planning and money spent went right down the drain. However, a lesson was quickly learned. Get a signed contact, lesson learned.
Fab Collaborations – BLB has been rocked by some of the best bloggers out there! For instance, Sade A. Spence killed it in the Don’t Rust Me Trousers. We are grateful to have fashionistas who enjoy our styles. (pic by Hamilton Wolfe)
BLB Brand Reps – We recently announced our Brand Rep Program and it’s off to a great start! Our Brand Reps earn commission on sales placed at Blue Labels Boutique, receive free gifts and more. We are so grateful that our reps are helping us spread the fashion love. We couldn’t be happier…seriously. Thanks to each and every one of you. Get more information here if you want to be part of the team.
Many thanks and blessings to you! What are you grateful for?
Stay Fearless 💋
