So I should start by saying that I have by no means forgotten about the blog. I’ve been traveling for my day job over the past three weeks with no days off, and work days ranging from 14-16 hour days. Unfortunately, this leaves me no time to assemble posts. Then in shop news, the first half of our mono shipment was stolen by a postal employee, and so we’ve been dealing with the stress of that and scrambling to get reimbursed and have the items redelivered and posted on the site, because I know quite a few of you were interested in them. Basically, life has been a wee bit stressful lately-ha!
I’ll be back in Texas starting Wednesday and will most likely not be back home until the following Wednesday, so posting will be spotty or non existent. We’ve a weather delay today so I’ve got a little bit of time to make this post. See you all again soon!
I know I’ve linked to online shop, My Theresa in some of my cut-and-paste posts, but I’ve never really done a full feature on the site. The German based shopping site models itself after net-a-porter and stocks a delish selection of big name designer pieces, so there’re plenty of gorgeous albiet pricey items to choose from. But hey, who doesn’t like browsing this kind of shop? Eye candy! Anyways, you can view all items in several currencies and they ship internationally
Hey all, we launched quietly very early Sunday morning and are making the official announcement today. If you’re on the mailing list you should have already been informed! I hope everyone will find something they like from our small, but thoughtfully selected inventory. We had a lot of fun figuring out what to carry at launch and all of the designers I worked with were wonderful. We’ve got a nice mix of recognizable pieces from designers and brands who have gotten a lot of love here recently (Manu by Lauren Manoogian, and Swedish Hasbeens), beautiful, versatile, intriguing classics (Mono), visually and socially inspiring clothing and accessories from just-breaking-onto-the-scene designers (ffiXXed and Osei-Duro), and handmade one-of-a-kind pieces from a couple RISD students with a fresh, artistic perspective (Nora MacLeod and Elsinore Smidth-Carabetta).
We’ve got a lot of exciting things planned for the shop, which I’m mostly going to keep on the dlow until we go live with them, but suffice it to say there will always be something new and interesting to experience at the shop. More immediately, we’ll be adding two new designers in May/June and a few new items each month. I’ll be pretty active with the News section of the shop too where I’ll be posting updates regarding the shop and things that I think you’ll find of interest that aren’t appropriate to post here.
Anyway, click on over to shoppourporter.com and have a look!
Really loving these geometric shapes and prints pieces by Perks&Mini (PAM) from their Garden of Earthly Delights collection (Now I have that XTC song stuck in my head! Not that that’s a bad thing) all at their Someday store (lots of great stuff there)
