What I'm Up To Today

You know what takes guts? Putting out work that is ‘just ok’. And yet that’s the only way to get to the point where you’re putting out work that’s great. . I spent the weekend in tears because of some parts of my new store in St. Louis that are turning out not quite perfect. . Generally, the way to do a new thing right, is to first do it wrong. That’s been my journey the last 3 years trying to sell fashion. Every step I take is the wrong one, and also, leads to the right one. That takes guts. . I just got off the phone with The Amy that #theAMYskort is named after all her words were right, but hard to hear. . The gist of which was: “sometimes it doesn’t work out”. . There were also a lot of: ‘don’t you dare quit’s’ and ‘you’re so close’. . And then the kicker: “don’t overextend yourself if it’s unhealthy for you or your family.” . So Happy Monday - the punches to the gut mean we’re going in the right direction. We don’t want to be comfortable, because then maybe we aren’t making any progress. . . #MrsEmilyFashionAdvocate #DebunkingTheFashionMyth
