Fashion you can buy, but style you possess. The key to style is learning who you are, which takes years. There’s no how-to road map to style. It’s about self expression and, above all, attitude.—Iris Apfel
When I began announcing it as such, Tim was like “choose one!” similar to his response to my tendency to over-accessorize. So, of course, I chose all three and only announced it as one.
Shortly after noon, we welcomed longtime and new friends into the space to nosh on homemade vegan blueberry muffins and pumpkin scones, sip mimosas, and shop TranquiliT’s fall collection.
In the process, we raised $2200 for Pigs & Pugs Project (fundraiser), I was able to share my space with others (Open House), and we hosted the first TranquiliT event in a few years (trunk show).
Before our guests arrived, I shot a brief 3-minute Facebook Live to show off the sweet pop-up boutique we’d created.
The icing on the cake was having such great help! Thursday through Sunday Tim helped me haul everything to and from the office. On Friday Carol spent the afternoon helping me tag and hang the clothing plus label all the cute chalkboards while we listened to Nina Simone. On Saturday Joanna, Patricia, Carol, and our seamstress Renee helped answer questions, alter clothing, ring people up, and were such gracious hosts.
Whew, it takes a village!
A BIG thank you to everyone who came out to the event. Your support benefits pig sanctuaries and pug rescues, our local seamstress, and this small, artisanal pet project I’ve had since 2002.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Bisous. x
