Baby Steps...

This is what I keep telling myself. I am completely surprised and grateful all at once at the success of this latest Summer collection. When I really start to think about it my mind races a mile a minute and I starting asking all different totally unrelated questions out loud to the nearest person in the room or on the phone. Most times it is my husband. Then he tells me "Don't stress or worry, you will do fine." And then I am fine again for the next 30 or so minutes.

I have big plans for Loves Me Not and I would love to share my joy of designing with all of you. In order to do this I have to grow a bit so I can "share the love" so to say. In saying this, I think that when you are developing a new plan, making changes and taking big steps all at once that it needs to be done slowly....hence the "baby steps".

I have met with a couple manufacturers here in the wonderful USA! Isn't it great to be American by the way? I would love to say we are 100% made in the USA and help out people right here in our own country. Nothing is in stone at this point as we are still talking and nothing has been decided but I am pretty certain I will be getting some help in quickly completing the pieces from the Summer line. Some items will still be made my me...baby steps. One can't grow too fast and I still need to be thoroughly involved in the production of my pieces.

If all goes well and we come to an agreement then the items you all recently threw in your carts will be done much sooner than the original 8 week wait - wahoo - can you say it again? I would love nothing more than to get those pretties to you asap! I cannot give a timeline yet but when I know more I will promise to share!




On another note, I know some of you are feverishly checking here and the store for one particular tank dress....well I can say I have a few more to share so check the store for availability.
I am seriously lacking in the sleep department so have a wonderful night!

I am so proud of you! I think it is great that you are taking things slow and steady. I think that jumping in with both feet and not looking out below can be a detriment. I see big things for you girl and I am really excited for you. Go team LMN!
