Heyyy! I'm Michele- welcome to my dream, where things I never thought were possible are actually happening (like meeting amazing women, who grow from customers to friends and finding clothes that actually FIT and I love wearing! WHAT?!)
Not only am I navigating this whole small business thing, but I'm also 9 years into figuring out how the heck to do the MOM thing to three amazing boys, run a household, be a...decent...wife HAHA and not fall asleep in the process. Whew. I'm tired already.
You might know this feeling: I've always been curvy and mom life added a little extra love to me :) I quickly realized, moving from a 14/16 pre-pregnancy to an 18/20 after those cute babies, that the clothing world shrunk exponentially (BTW- the average American woman is over a size 16. Why do clothing brands stop there? Ridiculous.) Not only did I have, well, almost nowhere to pick from, but the choices I did have consisted most of styles way too old (I see you couch print floral) or way too young for me (talking to you corset crop top). Now- if you're curvy and you love a great crop, by all means, crop away! I love to love my body, in all its greatness, capability and refusal to flat out just give up on me (even when I've run on 3 hours of sleep since my 9 year old was born) but my life requires a certain ease of wear, paired with cute and comfy. (I always say if "feels like pajamas, looks cute" was a style, well, my style would have a name.)
