Right now my entire life is in one of the biggest transitions I've ever been through. It's pretty much a ton of fairly large transitions grouping together to create one mega-titan-sized-transition. I've officially left Hot Topic *tear* and have moved onto pursuing my design dreams while balancing a part time job at our local co-op (which is awesome by the way....like if there was ever an award given for the best "do-good" company....they would take the gold).
I haven't been through training in a while for a new job, so this is definitely a change....but I think i'm getting the hang of it. I'm looking forward to feeling comfortable, so my days go by fast and by the end of my shift I'm ready to just go home and design (rather than go home and sleep from my brain exploding from new knowledge)
Another change going on....I'm moving. I will be moving back home for a little bit, and then hopefully back out with a few friends. Moving sucks. That's all I've got to say. It's especially different this time around as well.
These things have all brought on a huge stress, so that's the reasoning for me just sticking to "update" type posts. My apologies. In time(hopefully within a few weeks), let's hope I can move away from the "update" type and into the "every day" type posts.
So that's the "my life now update".
As for SOVRIN. My apparel is now selling at Grit N' Glory :) You can find tanks and leggings there. Grit N' Glory is a fantastic boutique/lifestyle boutique selling a mix of independent designs and products made by bigger companies. The apparel/accessories are all greatly inspired by the "rebel street-fashion" style. (my personal favorite) Here are a few pics of their store and my stuff there!
You should definitely go check them out! Well I've got to get back to work!
When I move back home I'm going to try and do more outfit posts again too!
I'm so happy to finally say that I will have more time for blogging and my company, SOVRIN. I have decided to take a chance and leave my current job as Store Manager at Hot Topic in order to pursue where my passions lie. I will really miss the company, as I've been there for about 5 years now. It's semi-terrifying, but I think it's a needed step. I have a part time job lined up, but I will fully devote the rest of my time to building my business. I hope everything goes in the right direction.
This may be the biggest chance I've ever taken.
But let's be real, my dream is not to be a store manager, it's to be designing and creating. If I don't leave now, I feel as though it will never happen.
Bring it on.
On a side-note. I'm doing a big sale on my etsy, and getting rid of all of my mis-printed items for a mega discount. You can see all the sale stuff here.
I will be printing on hoodies this fall! It will be a made-to-order thing as they are kind of expensive per piece. They will be printed on American Apparel #f497 in black. You get to choose your size, and the print you would like on the back. $50
Well well, it's only been about a month since my last post. My apologies. I have to say the reason for my absence has just been due to me being overwhelmingly busy! I think that my priorities will be changing soon enough, and I should have more time for blogging and my personal business. Here are a few pictures from the last few months.
I recently did a photo shoot with two amazing ladies, Amber and Sally. The photos turned out pretty great. I'm still learning how to properly use my camera, but in time I hope to master it. I've also added a lot of new items to my Etsy shop.
I've also been doing some test prints, and trying out printing on new items. Here I'm wearing an Illuminati dress I printed.....it was difficult to do and very time consuming, but I think it turned out great.
Here is the newest design of them all. I'm hoping to have them available by this Friday. I won't have the time to use a fancy model, so it will most likely be me modeling for just the first shots.....hopefully I will have time for a shoot very soon so I don't have to be modeling for long haha.
This dress I will be wearing today! Super excited, it's so cute. I want this to be also available by Friday *fingers crossed* I haven't decided the price point for this dress just yet.
What can I say, I've been super busy lately. I've just recently added a new pair of leggings on my etsy. They have already gotten some wonderful feedback :)
I will also be doing an instagram contest coming up tomorrow morning. If you haven't followed me yet my instagram is @sovrin_ I'm pretty excited for this contest as it's going to be a really big one....well my biggest yet at least. :)
