Thank you for your headband purchases.

A few weeks ago I asked for you to purchase a headband so I could use all of the proceeds to make a donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I sold seventeen headbands total for a donation of $680. Some of them I hand-delivered to local friends, and the rest I shipped out yesterday. I still have a few special orders left (a purple one, a lime one, and a red one) and I will do my best to get those sent by the end of the week.

Thank you so much. I was hoping to make $300 and we more than doubled that.

I made this donation because of your support in honor of Corazon Gonzaga DelMundo, my friend’s mother who tragically lost her battle with breast cancer last month. I was so blown away by your support for that goal. Thank you so much and if you ordered a headband, it is on its way to you now! I hope that you wear it knowing you are connected to millions of women who stand strong in support of each other. I am so happy to pass it on.

Things I’ve Learned Trying to Break Into Plus-Sized Retail

I used to think that retailers that didn't carry plus sizes were deliberately excluding a huge segment of the market, but as a small retailer that is trying hard to offer those sizes to our customers, we've learned so much about the extended sizing landscape in ready-to-wear fashion.

DIY: A Fabric Flower Crown from my book, Fabric Blooms!

Crowning Glory Rose Bouquet Headband

One of my favorite trends right now are flower headbands. They're whimsical in a tall, teased-up hairdo, and they can be sweet and demure on a favorite little girl in your life. I made this headband in shades of yellow and pink roses, but once you get the hang of this technique you can re-create it with other flower types, different colors, and other fabrics for a completely different look that's personal to you. Each step is included in the photo below, so you can sort of see how the process looks as you create the headband. These instructional photos are one of my favorite things about Fabric Blooms--they're beautiful, easy to follow, and they were a lot of fun to style with photographer Justin Limoges! Thanks too to my model, Sarah Lorsung Tvrdik aka Fash Flood aka my business partner!

Princess Lasertron x Interface School: Blogging to Build a Brand

I got a very exciting email a several weeks ago from Shonna Dorsey, the cofounder and executive director of Interface School, a huge up-and-coming web school with the goal of helping people build knowledge and skills in tech and increase the base of hirable talent for startups and small businesses in the Midwest. (That was a long sentence. I hate it when I do that.) Shonna asked me if I would be willing to design and host a class about blogging for beginners, and I am so excited to have the opportunity to do just that next week!
