Hi there. So Tiff and I had a conversation a few weeks ago about ways we want to change the blog, really get back to it this year, and make it an online space that is more representative of where we are in our lives. We talked about aesthetic changes, posting schedule and how we are going to really dive into the whole “new year, new you” thing. She did a great job, posted something cool on schedule, and I sort of didn’t. Not sort of, I just didn’t.
I’m not technically too busy, but my brain has been in other places for the past few months. There are some things happening, and I figure now is as good a time as ever to talk about it. (This is sounding very dramatic, everything is fine.)
I have started a company. It’s called Decker, it’s a clothing line for women, with an emphasis on sustainable materials, ethical production, and making ladies feel damn sexy. I am in the beginning bits right now, but I am working with a factory in LA to make the patterns, the samples and, eventually, the whole line. The fabrics are coming from all over. It’s a process that I am learning a lot from, and I have a notebook with me constantly so I don’t forget everything. It’s exciting, and mostly fun, but there are a lot of days when I need to sit on the porch and Claire Danes cry.
I get nervous about sharing this stuff, because I am impatient with my own progress, and if you are into curated content that might be useful for your daily life, probably just read Tiff’s stuff. I will be writing a lot about the process, about all the weirdness and insecurities that come along with starting a company alone (lucky you), and probably about self care a LOT. I am still in classes to learn how to be less of an asshole to myself, so I will throw in some “how to pretend you are chill” things along the way.
If you have any questions about it, feel free to ask. I am not sharing the designs yet, I don’t have a website, I need to figure out 39,283,935 more things, so I might not have the answer to your questions, but go ahead and ask.
Hope you are having a great week, stay tuned for oversharing.
