Good Morning, Pippettes!
Been a while since we’ve ran a post here…. and so I first must apologize. I can think of nothing more rude than starting a blog and then going MIA suddenly for months. Thank you again for hanging on, however, as we’ve been busy behind the scenes and have some news to share.
First things first, and that’s what in the world is happening with this blog?!?! The blog will be staying, HOWEVER, it will eventually be transferring over into an ecommerce site with just a single page devoted to a blog post when it really counts! We don’t want to keep you reading for nothing, and I think it’s more important to give you material of quality to read than just anything for the sake of writing. Nonetheless, the blog portion will still exist in one fashion or another. You can be on the look out for our new revised ecommerce site along with our potential line launch Spring 2014! Change is good people, change is good!
And this is actually the perfect segue way…. I say potential line launch not to be negative but to be realistic….(in my mind, I’d like to even think of it as more eventual…as in, if not right now, we will try again later). It’s been such an exciting journey… one I wouldn’t have made without the encouragement and help of family and friends along the way. While I would if I could, it’s just not possible to pay for a full line launch out of pocket (after all, there’s still those student loans life handed me…blerg!) So starting this line, it needs to be smart. Going straight into debt just isn’t an option, and so we have created our very own Pippa France | Luxury Shoes Kickstarter.com page.
Not only will Kickstarter be better for the financial security of this new, very small company, but it gets potential customers involved….the customer is not just a customer, but a part of our line. While there is no guarantee of success, I am happy to say we gave it a shot! Sometimes you only get one shot at a dream, and it’s not every day you get to invite others to be a part of it with you!
So I invite you all to take the first look at the preview of our Kickstarter page: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2109073348/969925160?token=6aa7721a …by the time this message posts to your inbox, it may even be launched! By 10:00pm EST, today, August 28, 2013….we will have officially launched….hopefully to a destination beyond our wildest dreams.
In the meantime, stay tuned for updates, and I hope you all look forward to our newly redesigned site in the future. Thank you all for being there, for reading and contributing…Cheers to a little more “sole” in all of our lives! xoxoxo
