Bonjour my dearest ladies!
I am relieved that it's Thursday and that FINALLY Nicole and I have some new pieces in our collection. It's been such a roller coaster to pull out our own designs because tbh we're still learning the ins and outs of our business and the dynamics have really changed with creating our own designs. It's not as easy as having a boutique store which is also hard but this is on another level. I am glad to say that with Gods amazing and wonderful help (I know it's His doing) we are where we are. I've been so stressed trying to track boxes of shipment coming from far far away others not that far but still freight is annoying!
I'm sorry you have to wait for you orders when you shop online with us. I really wish we could just poof you your items but until they invent teleportation the the anticipation that comes with opening your mail can be somewhat of a thrill.
Now to my outfit! I love anything brocade, I think most of us do and this ensemble was just that. A mix or elegant textures. My blouse had a damask like brocade velvet shoulder piece with chiffon and the skirt Nicole and I designed looked perfect with the top. I'll attach the sketch below so you can guys can see the raw idea.
We knew we wanted metallic threads and some beaded touches at the waistline. Luckily the we found the most perfect fabric and I am in love with this skirt! It's so exquisite and high end plus the color is amazing with the mini brocade prints through out. This is just one of the pieces of course there's more you can check out at TheNIST.com
About our Re-brand
So why The NIST, easy enough it's NI from Nicole and ST from Steph put together. We wanted an elegant organic feel to our clothing and knowing that The NIST sounds like nest and home to our ideas. It really gave us the right vibe for our re-brand. It wasn't an easy decision but with so many people confusing P.Kid Chicks Fashion for a kids clothing line and others with difficulty pronouncing the name we felt it was time to create a new chapter for us. To say the least we are pleased with the changes and excited to see what up ahead.
I'd like to thank you all for your support, whether you shop with us, browse, follow, or just like a picture here and there thank you! We wouldn't be where we are without you and most importantly we give the glory to God that by His grace we were able to create something inspired by Him.
Oh and don't forget to check out the sketch below. This is the a part of the process. We design color, add some swatches of the desired over all color and then go fabric hunting. After that patterns are cut out, checked for precision and sent to manufacturing. So much love and dedication goes into each piece. If you haven't shopped with us before I do hope you will consider it and give us a chance to wow you with one of our lovingly designed garments.
