As I mentioned in my last post, the “new and improved” Tickety Boutique will be seeking out an inventory and an image that is a lot edgier than it had been in the past.
I am hoping to bring my feminism and social interests to the forefront and I also intend to bring together the stories of individuals who are doing the same to you, here, in one great place!
I have maintained my connections overseas with my dress supplier that many of you have come to know and love. Now that I will no longer be operating out of the brick-and-mortar shop, I will have more time to spend with each garment. I will use this time to modernize and tastefully add-to these garments before they are presented to you in the Tickety Boutique.
Some of them, as you see above, are good to go straight outta the box! Others could use a lifted hem here, slight taper there.. you know how it is.
I have also been scouring the internet for fun and creative, handmade accessories. This piece by Modern Girl Blitz is among my favourite. Her shop is bursting with “wearables for feminists, badass babes, + witchy weirdos”. You may have seen the profile that I did about her some time ago here.
I also love it when Canada can represent! Like Love Struck Prints, out of Montreal. This is my friend Chantal who is modelling this tee. Isn’t she a star!?
Well.. That’s about all of the peek that you’re going to get today!
I can’t give away all of the cookies for free, ladies!
Please, be sure to check back for shop updates as things start to come together. I will be starting to bring in fabrics to make fun and exciting wares especially for you over the next couple months. I have an idea of what I would like to create, and if things go to plan, it’s gonna be great!
