Apology to My Ladies Who Wear Above a Size 10
I've wanted to send a note to you gals for some time. If you've looked at (or followed) my marketing and social media there would be some months where you may wonder if we even carry things things above a size 10. I want to assure you that WE DO. The social media, photography and styling part of my job is something i am grateful I GET TO do every day. I use models that live right by the shop and or friends that I've worked with for years that I can pay in coffee, hugs or just getting photos of themselves. That's what's worked for me. Jade who is in this photo and a TON of my instagram pictures has been a friend of mine now for almost 4 years, in her early 20's, we have amazing photo-styling chemistry (she helps me get the job done quick!) and she's a size 0/2. A lot of the dresses she models in size 4, 6, 8 are clipped in the back to look better in the picture. She is so fun to take photos of but she is also a tiny person who looks good in everything!
Consign Couture usually has a great selection of size 10, 12 and 14 (16-18+ can be spotty). In 2015 I used a few models who fit the above a size 10 category but I have run into a few issues: they didn't want their size listed in the post (I totally respect that but its hard to promote clothing if i can't list the size) and or their availability when I usually shoot new arrivals (Tuesdays & Saturday 11-4pm) was tough to schedule. I am going to work on incorporating more size 10+ models in 2016 but for now trust me we do have you covered in the shop! I care very much about creating a visual story of different shapes, sizes, ages and colors of the women who keep me doing what I love.
Currently we have some of the best XL, 14, 16 little black dresses we've ever had in. By Anthropologie, Karen Kane, French Connection, Vince Camuto and Eliza J. We have some amazing shirts, sweaters and coats as well.
I'm working on improving this part of my business visual story. If you know any ladies who love modeling quick outfit posts that are above a size 10 send them this post and I'd love to meet them in the coming months.
