Sip N Shop- The Boutique Sales Chic Experience!

Hey yall Hey and how's everyone doing today? My day is going pretty well, no complaints on this end only Peace and Positivity! Those of you who follow my blog already know that I'm part owner of the online fashion boutique, Boutique Sales Chic ,but what you  may not know is that I co-own this business with my daughter and on a daily basis we are growing and learning ways to make our business a success. Today I'm going to share with you the lessons learned and our experience at our first Sip n Shop so for right now sit back, put your feet up, and get into this vibe!

Online Boutique/ Fashion Boutique/ Womens clothing

FABulites, I absolutely love running an online business but that by no means says I don't want to have a personal experience with  my customers. When someone makes a purchase from us I want to know that even the most simple purchase made a difference in the life of my customer. To me that's what's fashion is all about. It goes way beyond being just a dress or a pair of shoes, How did that item make you feel? How did you use that feeling to change something in your life or the lives of others? I have questions!

Sip n Shop/ Event/ Shopping

These are the thoughts that led us to our very first Sip N Shop. We always wanted to do one but every time the idea came up there were 10 reasons why we shouldn't or couldn't. Can't find a reasonable location, not enough time to plan it, the timing isn't right and more! This time we set those wait until the time is right to the side and just decided to go for it and boy oh boy am I glad we did!

Because it was a spur of the moment idea we decided to do the Sip n Shop at home and make it a intimate setting just for family and close friends. The hardest part about all of this was simply not overthinking things and once we had that in check the rest flowed easily. Without a doubt one of the best business decisions we've made in a while!


We wanted our guests to feel welcomed while we introduced them to our fashions so we mad sure the setting was right. We did everything possible to make sure the table, area where the clothing would be, music, and fashionable atmosphere was just right and from that point on it was a GO!

For our first Sip n Shop experience we provided out guests with sandwiches pictured above, fruit, meatballs, vegetable tray, and our signature Strawberry CHICster drinks! It just felt right! Seeing everyone mingling, eating, drinking, and shopping our fashions was an amazing experience and one that neither of us will soon forget. As a matter of fact it went so well that we plan on having one at least once a month! Amazing right!

While it was an amazing experience no experience goes without challenges and lessons learned. For our next Sip n Shop I'll make sure to provide guests with a full length mirror for trying on clothes, take more pictures to be able to savor the memories forever, and know without hesitation the prices of everything! And there you have it folks, My very first  Boutique Sales Chic Sip n Shop!

Have you ever had or attended a Sip n Shop? What was the most memorable part of your experience?

Wear the Dress, Don't Let The Dress Wear You!

Hey yall Hey and Happy Thursday! How's everyone feeling today? Normally Thursdays are for some sort of throwback post but in honor of Mother's day I wanted to do things a little different and share the fabness of this beautiful blue Royalty Dress with all of you. Is that alright? I said is that alright?

So many of us have it wrong! We are stuck on the story where she finds the dress and then all is well with the world. Today I'm here to tell you that finding the dress is just the stepping stone you need to make things right with your life. Simply wearing the dress alone is like put a bandage on a larger issue.

Royalty

Have you ever seen someone wear the most beautiful dress ever but because they wore the dress with little to no confidence no one was able to see it's true beauty? Again, like I stated earlier it's always more than just about the dress and It always will be. Don't get me wrong, the right dress does come with power but if you are not able to know the strength or positivity of that power then what good is it?

A couple days ago I heard someone ask  what they should wear to an event that would be full of the people in their element and I was kinda thrown off by it. I mean yes we have all been in situations where we wonder what to wear but this time the question just seemed to be a no brainer to me. We all have that one outfit in our closet that makes us feel confident, determined, sexy, powerful, strong, and like there's nothing we can't do when we are wearing it. That's the one! For those of you who don't have this trust me when I tell you one day you will. Even in fashion you want to surround yourself with the looks and pieces that are best for you. This doesn't mean it has to be expensive, trendy, in season, or even something others find attractive, this just means that when you wear it you feel good and can be the best possible version of you!

Good, bad, or indifferent, Wear the dress ladies, never let the dress wear you! What are some of the biggest fashion lessons you've learned and which ones have stuck with you?

The desire to do More of What I Love with Michelob Ultra Pure Gold

This post is sponsored by Michelob ULTRA but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

FABulites, I hope those of you reading this can relate to what I'm about to share with you and for those who are not quite there right now, trust me your day is coming. I currently find myself at that stage in life where I don't want to put my time, energy, and effort into anything that I don't love. It's like why bother, what's the  purpose. I spent so many years just trying to figure out exactly what it is that I love and am passionate about and no that I know I've made up my mind to do lots more of it. Today I'm going to share with you some of the things I love and how Michelob Ultra Pure Gold is giving me the push I need to do more of it!

Food/ Eating/ Ribs/ Restaurants/ South Florida

I'm a FOODIE and I make no excuses for it! Some of my best memories are of spending quality time with my family and friends having a great meal. I want to visit restaurants near and far tasting and enjoying their menu of delectables one by one. I want to visit different countries learning all about their delicacies and delighting my taste buds with their flavor. Food is absolutely amazing and I want to broaden my horizons by having more of it. Any other foodies feel me on this?


I want to travel and travel without excuses. I don't want to go because I'm on a business trip I want to go just because I want to go. As a kid I traveled the US running track and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. The problem is that since those times my traveling has pretty much come to a halt. Can you believe I've never traveled out of the country? I know right it's even embarrassing to write. This world is a beautiful place and I want to explore more of it. I want to visit those far away places that if it weren't for my Instagram I wouldn't even know existed. Any travel buddies wanna join me?

 

I want to drink the drink! For a majority of my life I've held back from beer and other alcoholic beverages because I was afraid of what they would do to my body. Times have now changed and it's currently easier than ever to take care of and maintain a healthy body image and drink the drink at the same time. Thanks to Michelob Ultra Pure Gold I can now do both and enjoy doing it. Michelob Ultra gives you the permission to make healthier choices while  still being able to enjoy a ice cold beer you can feel good about drinking at the end of the day. With Michelob Ultra you don't have to make sacrifices.


Michelob ULTRA is introducing their NEW sustainably sourced beer that was born with a commitment to innovate using ingredients and inspiration from nature. Made with organic grains and with sustainable packaging in partnership with the Sustainable Forestry Initiative, it's inspired by nature and best enjoyed in nature, made with .Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold is a light lager with a superior, golden taste. With only 2.5 carbs and 85 calories, Pure Gold is triple filtered and brewed free of artificial colors and flavors.

Another of the things I want to be able to do is Dream freely. I want to dream of the times when there will no longer be any pain and sufferings, and all people will be treated equally. I want to dream of a time when more of an emphasis will be put on family time than work, a time when education and healthcare will be free to all and when the hardest decision we have to make daily will be what's for dinner. Hey I know you all are gonna let  girl dream right?
