Imagine him having a great day in imagine cleaning up his business to get cleared out and then helped him to find you. I love you find him yourself. That's right that's right. I'm going to be like Kimberly williams paisley has to do wedding. Because she's the one who told me what different okay so so yes. Christmas chronicles two and then on the twenty fifth. I have another christmas movie coming out. Because i just can't get enough christmas. And who can this one's called nashville christmas carol. Oh no yeah the hallmark. Yeah so that'll probably like both of them will be running through thanksgiving weekend. Yes and you need to know that. There's another podcast called the. I bet they'll probably later on. Okay great they are clock o'clock. You're going to love them so much they are jackson. Shaw amazing and i'm coming on their show to review nashville christmas carol. It's going to be great. I'm a huge hallmark. Christmas movie fan and so they always try to pick someone who kind of connects with the movie to recap. It's not as much a review as a recap and so after. I get to watch it. I get to go and talk about awesome. It looks awesome. Are you having a pallet turned out. I haven't seen it. I'm the spirit of christmas present. Oh take on christmas. Carol i read. I read the original to my children and they cried as was terrifying. Yeah this is the hallmark version. That's right that's right here yes. I didn't get to be an extra. I'm so because. I think that enjoy last time i was at dollywood. I was an extra in the christmas dollywood last year. Oh my gosh. that's so funny. Next time they do a christmas one and national. I'm gonna have to really call hallmark but you. When did y'all did y'all do at the fall. We did it like a month ago. I mean if they turn this around so fast oh yeah. Do you know on the app. I'm sure you probably don't. I'm okay with that on the hallmark gap. They don't even have the cover of a nashville christmas. Carol yet. it's yes yes. I am so thrilled to have both. I mean that. I'm so glad people are hearing this today because that gives them all weekend to both of those because national christmas carol will be on a lot of times and net flicks. So so why not. A judd is a national christmas. Carol and kicks brooks and then Jessy schram is the lead yes. It's a really waiting for those are two very good movies for us to enjoy this weekend. Feels like to dip their different. But they're both christmasy. They're both off the christmas season. Do for thanksgiving two people come to you or do you go to them. Well it's usually actually go out to california for thanksgiving so We'll we'll probably be out there and everything in the holidays is going to be different this year because it's usually a lot of family and my sister's up in canada. She's also a lot of hallmark movies. Yes she just had never kiss a man in a christmas sweater come out on hallmarks the bang girl. Yeah that is your sister yeah. He was very good in that movie by the way. Really forgive me for how much i have seen of leaving. He's already. I told you i'm not married yet. Side and encode. I'm home a lot. Oh that is her. she's very good Yeah she's great so she's up canada then she keeps working there and they've got the two week quarantine up in canada so she's just staying there with her family so i'm not gonna see her. The holidays in the my dad is in new york and it's dangerous for him to travel so we're sort of like changing things around this year. I know i have so much compassion for our friends there. There's got to be people today. Who are listening in their home alone because they're quarantined or in isolation because they're sick and i have not so much compassion that this is not going to look the same for any of us this well. I mean. you brought up alzheimer's earlier which is my other passion project. Because my mom passed away from alzheimer's actually four years ago monday. But i think of all the caregivers right now with in the middle of a pandemic who don't have access to the resources and the help that they normally have caregiving for someone with alzheimer's is a twenty four seven job and it's all consuming and so it's really important for caregivers to take care of themselves and to ask for help and get help and it's just so much harder. Yeah when you're in the middle of a pandemic us they those are the groups of people that will be and my prayers today. Yeah the caregivers will be cared for. The sick will feel like at least two of their friends are with them. At least you. And i are with them so they may be alone today. But we're with them for this amount time. So yeah advocate. The last question we always ask is because the show is called. That sounds fun. Tell me what y'all do for fun. The first thing that comes to mind is ping pong. Yeah we yeah. We have some really fierce fierce ping pong matches and brandon. I really well matched that way in pingpong. So yeah with that's what we'd love ping pong. Yes the asked for not as much anymore but yeah huc- is really into it so we definitely do that. We also play dodgeball. We have a little dodgeball court. And we go and take it out on the course as the four.

"Fun. And now back to finish our conversation with kimberly i would love to. I mean when we hung up on that call a couple of weeks ago. I thought i need to be a part of something like this. That's what i thought. And that's probably one of the goals of the call is to say to all of us like hey friends y'all live here. Here's the thing. Yeah but i did. I mean i. I really thought that. What a great way to spend some of our time over the next few months. If we're able to two. I mean you just get to know neighbors in ways. How by the way. How'd you find her to run the run the store for you. We just did a search and you know she's awesome rose to the top fantastic it. Yeah yeah was she already at national or does she move here for the job. Know she was a national. She was amazon. Oh wow you're like. I can teach you a different sort of work for. Don't feel way better. He worked so hard and she works with other organizations in a really great way so if we get a donation of something we have extra bread and she knows we can't. We can't use it all in the amount of time. We need to she partners up with all these other organizations than they do the same for us. And that's something that we really. We came into this knowing. We didn't want to have a competent titian between other organizations. Because there's a lot of need and we need to work together on it so the court. He has really helped to foster that. Do you see a world where y'all opened more stores around town we would like to. There's so much need. And that's in davidson county. There's need in williamson county where we actually live. Yeah so we would love that you know. We're we're pretty new and we just wanna make sure we can do the one very well. Yeah but but yeah that is in our dreams love to open more where we hope people how we did it. So the open the across the country. I think partnering with belmont was one of the best things we did. 'cause they have been a fantastic resource and provide help provide funding and and opportu volunteer opportunities in the ministry center and You know they've got the nursing school so health services at the ministry center so that's our say like finding a university that you can partner with. That's interested because there's there's a huge education component in food insecurity to and there's a lot of people with diabetes who have to have a specific diet other health issues and so education is part of it. It's feels like a an opportunity to For y'all even to to build this thing that teaches people so quickly because partnered with belmont yes and our goal is to help them for a year program is a year and then our goal is to get them back on their feet and we don't see them again until they come through our doors to volunteer That's awesome like we would love to have short term relationship with them as a customer and then we want to help them get on their feet and not need us. Yes and that's i mean that neighborhood there are a couple of neighborhoods in our town. That are more needy than others. So you are playing it in such a great place. It's very visible. I mean i know exactly where it is. it's very visible. But it also is is right in the heart of where people who are in a wheelchair or have to walk or don't have easy transportation can get to you. That was so of y'all yeah brandon. I volunteered a couple of weeks ago. When we there those towers in hill and there were people on the top like the not. That tends floor. Who couldn't come down. And of course they got tiny little elevators and people not. Everyone was wearing a mask. And so you wouldn't want someone on the tenth floor to come down so we hauled those groceries ten flights of stairs. Oh my gosh out this stairs. Yeah that is a workout. Well done it was. it was a good workout. You can't even use like i mean that's like bags you can't even use carts to get it up there. What would that person have done right with those groceries and we do hear that a lot we here. I don't know what. I would have done for food this week if you hadn't shown up that is unbelievable. I mean it just the goal obviously like let's get those seventeen million kids as fifty million adults and kids together to where they're safe foodwise and where they're eating is there. Is there something we could do. Is i mean it's one of those where some people have time and some people have money. So if you don't have grime what some other can we donate is donating eating america. Can we donate to the store directly. Absolutely yeah this store dot org is our website and you can donate to. The store can go to feeding america dot org and donate to feeding america. We work with feeding america and get a lot of our food from them. Can we buy it from them. So yeah those are two great places to start. What a beautiful way to spend the life. I mean really like when when you think of things you'll be remembered for. You will be remembered for vegas but i feel like i mean this will be something you'll also be remembered for for so many years because you're providing dignity to our neighbors thank you. I hope so. I hope we lots longtime that's our goal. We've started our endowment already and we really want to. We want to be here for the long term until they don't need us anymore. Yeah i love it. Also i want people to know you have books. They can read your in all sorts of movies like you're reading your bio today. I was like oh. I just get to talk to you too and i was like okay. She has been busy busy life. My friend well you have to. We all just keep going to work. And i'm very grateful. And i love that. You were in the joe. Lean of dolly parton movie. Oh yeah.

"It's something i just love doing with my boys and then the store we will have more volunteer opportunities. There are a lot of onto al but we'll have more once. The pandemic is over and we need drivers right now for Delivering groceries But there are these local organizations all over the country. And i would say to people find out where they are in your area and go and support the local work and what if some of our friends listening hungry. I would imagine with the amount of friends we know on the other side of this. There are families that are that are hungry and aren't making ends meet. Where can they go. How how can make that step. How do you. How do you get over the maybe some shame or fear around that. How do you how do you get okay. And where do you go yeah. That's such a great question we get. We have six referral agencies in nashville and we work. We work with churches so a lot of people through their church. And i think that that's a great resource for people As i said feeding america's fantastic and they're used to there used to be first timers are used especially right now. They're used to people saying i've never done this before. I've never had to do this before i would imagine. There are so many families. I mean when we think about our neighbors here how many people are i think about these friends all the time. Sound guys and qatar tech's and all the road guys who have not done not been able to do their job since march and their families her may be hungry because their job just stopped existing exactly and it's not like anyone's done anything wrong right right a lot of times. The shame comes from. I messed up somehow or i. You know i've done something wrong but it's it's not. It's not your a lot of the time and you know. Circumstances are different for everybody. In the circumstances were born into different and and there shouldn't be any shame in at the iu. That's the. that's the hope. I have with people taken away. This conversation is what whatever side they're on this today. 'cause we can't know what i will be on it in six months. I need help to like there could be any day that we need help but just going like okay. There's no shame if you've been ashamed to go help. There's no shame if you've been ashamed to ask for help right. And there's a community of people who are just like you that you can connect with you know and you can help each other. What was it like the day. The store opened well. I don't even know it was. It was such a whirlwind. We wanted to have a big ribbon. Cutting we have a big party and and you know the need just kept rising on our executive director. Courtney said we gotta just open abroad. And i said yeah. We ought to just start. Let's start. I can't even tell you you like we'll have a party later and then kovac we'll have. We'll we'll have a party like a year from when we open. Yeah and yeah just celebrate all the good. That's been done. It was really emotional for me to see the first customers coming in and just seeing them shop. And i didn't wanna stare and i didn't wanna follow around but i you know i just wanted to like see what their experience was like. But i didn't want to intrude. Yeah but it was really emotional for me to see someone just having a normal shopping experience. The and the store is such a gorgeous place. We had these fantastic architects at usa. Who built it for us and Just designed to be a wonderful welcoming place and so it was pretty emotional as see people showing up and now we've got. We've got lines on the days that were open. We've got lines down the street for the curbside and a bunch of people that were delivering to. Yes and i. I love the idea of any of our friends. That are in nashville. If your podcast listener get getting your car and go deliver groceries in. Listen to podcasts. While you're doing a great idea. We are here for you to go with you. And i will go with you all these travels. Hey francis interrupted this conversation one more time to tell you about one of our incredible partners. Kiwi co you and your family's well really have adapted to a lot of change this year. i know. I've watched you be brave and resilient and creative as you've solved problems. Can anybody say working from home while the kids are doing virtual learning and discovered new ways to tackle your days. Let's make the end of this year..

"So idea was to provide a safe normal sort of experience for people who were on hard times and so. That's why we called it the store because we wanted normal like they could say to their kids. We're just going to the store And and the idea is to have people come in and shop and in a community safe you know sort of community grocery store and that their kids could see their parents in a position of power making choices for the family but we open two weeks before the tornadoes hit nashville in march in march and then end so immediately sort of pivoted to emerge like disaster relief. Of course the pandemic happened and we didn't feel like it was safe to our doors open to people coming in with volunteers. We just wanted to regulate a little bit more so we pivoted and now we're doing Delivery service to homebound seniors and and curbside pickup. So we do have an and there are still some choices people can make but unfortunately it's not like what we originally envisioned but we'll we'll get back there. Why do you and brad care about this. Why was this the thing. Because i know you also talk a lot about alzheimer's and that really important to you as well. I y is food insecurity important to you. We were really inspired by organization called unity shop that we saw in santa barbara that the same thing and so we kind of copied that model and developed it into our own but we were really inspired by that model. It was a place that we took our kids over thanksgiving. Yeah one year when we wanted to just do more service and and we loved the way that we were all welcomed as volunteers and they showed. They taught us skills that are useful like that. My kids were suddenly packing beans and stacking on the shelves and checking people out and at the at the checkout counter and and it felt like there was the margins were being erased. I saw this woman in the aisle who is Pushing a cart and she saw my kids at the register. And she said oh. I used to bring my kids here. When when they were younger she used to bring her kids to unity shop to volunteer and now she was needing the service and there was no shame in her telling me that it was sort of like all of us. Come on hard time. Some some have harder times than others. And we're all here free each other and we're you're just in a different stage in life than you were then and you'll be back on your feet again and we're partnering with belmont ministries service a partnership with my university. Because i know that hunger is a multi-faceted problem especially in the edge hill neighborhood where we are there. A lot of issues that have led to someone not being able to have enough food so the ministry center is right next door and they are and they've had to curb what they offer now as well because the pandemic but they do offer like music therapy and then they offer legal services and things like that. So it's a great a great partnership there. And i just think the dignity. The way are doing it with such dignity where people are shopping like they aren't they. You know there are times where especially during natural disasters where you see a table and the people can just get a jug of water and a can of soup and that makes total sense at the everyday life of what you're offering. It just seems like such an answer. I want to tell you something embarrassing. And you can tell me why it's what to do with it There are times when i think about volunteering yet. I think i feel embarrassed to be the one who is on this side of it. And i feel embarrassed that i'm the person looking in the eyes when i'm handing them. The groceries looks just like me or we look like we could have been in high school together. Or how do we get over that weird. I i can't imagine on the only human ever felt that maybe and you can be like anne. It's a you probably well. That's the honest and thank you for sharing. I'm sure you're not alone in feeling that i would say. Give it a try. You know what. I felt when. I'm when i volunteered is that there's a wonderful connection. That's that's there and actually. It's something that i didn't feel growing up when my mom used to deliver meals on wheels and we go to a food pantry and we dole out like peas and mashed potatoes on asking and i always felt resentment from people that we were giving food to a lot of resentment and anger and that was surprising. But i think. I think it's that dignity piece. So that's what we're trying to get around with. The store is the store. I wanted to feel more like we're all in it together. Yeah you know and you are dignified when you show up here and you're making choices and you are empowered. So there's i don't feel that kind of embarrassment. Yeah it feels more normal business you know. Yeah i love that field so in in all of our communities are listening. How do we even find where the need is. How do we step into this. If we're able to i would. Yeah i would definitely go to the local places in your area where you are and and the local feeding america's fantastic across the country and they have a lot of opportunities to volunteer to back packs. And things like that that you can go with your kids. It's something i just love doing with my boys and then the store we will have more volunteer opportunities. There are a lot of onto al but we'll have more once. The pandemic.

"But then you know then the more we talked about our stories and our families in our lives and what we wanted in our lives the more it felt in line and then actually coincidentally or god.

"Oh on this but dehydrated. I don't even know if it's real trouble. Trump right labor right and we're going to sprinkle that on top this time so you have two boys. Is that right. Yeah okay so we do issue saying we have an email any. Afdc week in review and we tell people who were interviewing the next week. Who's coming on the show and so with your question. So they and they can give us questions and we're so fun because i mean it's ninety questions about father of the bride of course but one of them that i love along the same vein that don't actually know the answer to how you and your husband brad met. Oh gosh yeah. That's the way you tell that story. How'd meet the short stories that he stalked me and It ok- wound up like in jail or marriage and i chose married because it felt like it was easier. A long story is that he went to see father of the bride with girlfriend. Oh yeah weird. It gets weird and fathers bride. Was there movie. Oh my god. They saw probably like six or seven times. I mean he said they saw a bunch and then this girl broke his heart. Oh and i won't go into the details but it was. It was like the making of a good country song. Yeah so he moved to nashville and was sorta down about his love life and then he thought well it's the sequel came out of together bright gas and he thought well maybe i'll go back on the anniversary of our first date to that movie theater where we saw that movie and maybe she'll have the same thought and she'll be maybe we're we'll be like minded that way. We're both going to be romantics. Maybe she'll be there too. And we can have a sequel to our what an artist only artists that i love it and suckers. He goes back to the theater. It's his mother's birthday and thought about bringing flowers. He did not yeah. He goes to the movie. He watches the movie. She does not show up. He goes out to the parking lot. Anything oh crap. Was it the seven thirty or the nine thirty showing. He couldn't remember any thought. Well maybe what is. There was the nine thirty and he went to the seven thirty and they almost miss so okay. He goes back anybody's another ticket and he goes in and sits down. She does not show up again. He does not stay for the second show he leaves any goes and writes some really awesome songs including one called part two which was about that experience about hollywood. Always finds a way to have a sequel. Why can't we and it became the title track to his second album. Part two which has a little ticket stub in the album artwork. Oh brilliant back and find one the easter egg. Yeah cut to seven years later. It was seven years later. Now my perspective on this story. I hope he wanted the long guy. Yeah girl i'm all the way here. This of all the way here for it so my perspective is it's two thousand and one nine eleven happens and i was dating a couple bozos like hollywood actor actor types and you know lived in la at the time new york l. a. and guys kind of playing games. And you know i. I wasn't really ready to settle down yet anyway and then nine eleven happened and it was suddenly like an awakening like okay. I'm done playing games. I'm ready to find my person and universe helped me make that happen. So i started putting out a prayer like i've never prayed before like i would feel shivers in my body when i would pray and i wrote down on a piece of paper all the things i was looking for in a partner and i started praying specifically for the partner. That a new is there in the hall like praying that he has a good day praying that he can clean up whatever he needs to clean up so that we can meet frank that help him. Lord help him to find me. Help us to find each other. You know and it was like a regular ongoing prayer and so november first. So september eleventh happened and then on november first brad woke up on his tour bus with this really clearer idea that he had define me. Oh my gosh. And he doesn't know why does feel stalker to be honest. I'm yeah yeah but you've got to trust that too. Yeah i think if you're brad paisley trust based maybe you let it go. That's right. i'm pretty easy. He's a go getter so that very same day. He reached out to one person he knew who happened to be someone who knew my manager and i had just met this guy. Peter tilden a radio. Dj peter puts brad in touch with my manager. Who calls me that day. Is i just talked to the cutest guy. You're totally going to date him. And i said what are you talking about. Does this have to do with a job. Because you're my manager right. And and she said well he wants to do a music video but you're totally going to date him. Oh so brad. Called her and said that he was doing a music video in what i ever want to be in a music video and i had just told my manager like a month earlier that i really thought it'd be fun to do a music video so anyway later that day. We were talking on the phone and i thought he was adorable. I thought he he this cute southern accent and seems so much more naive and straightforward and romantic than the guys that i've been with and he wasn't like a slick charmer like game playing kind of guy. He was more straightforward. And so it went from there. That is i mean the zoom out of that story and the way was orchestrating. That the whole time. I mean yeah that is mind blowing. Yeah it was really wild. And that's i think why. I didn't say he's just a stocker is because i had also been putting out the prayer. Yeah and and and but at the same time. I was like well got us this. Are you sure. Because he seems a little dorky.

Were they both cooking in your kitchen at the same time. They were amazing cook. So i don't know what i was doing. They're just like trying to stay out of the way they're both amazing people and so inspiring yes. They came over and and made dinner for me. Basically yeah which is not a bad gig. No not a bad gig. Actually i think gen and i were kind of drinking wine and danielle took over. What was happening. Okay so are you. Do you eat danielle's way. Are you like gluten free or just like her cookbooks. I really like her cookbooks. And i attempt to eat her way. You know she's in. She inspires me to with the way. She has healed her body with food. So i love her recipes than i think. It's a really healthy way of eating. If you can. It's hard for me to keep it up. And i don't have. I don't have the issues that she has so i. I do kind of stray from that way of eating. But but i loved scott. Great cookbooks celebrations. When that i've used around and yeah ok. How did you become friends with both of them. You know what social media won't do it. I know. I know we got here too. I am so grateful for social. Media reached out to jen. How maker years ago. Now and she responded. Yeah and and then same with daniel. I was making her marshmallows. Yes hair so hard disaster in the kitchen before twenty twenty i was. I was way worse than i am now. I was trying to make her marshmallows. And i i put the the blender in.

Yeah it's something. I do with my oldest son huck can you know. It's just his love it. i love it. It really was fun to watch. You learn over cova. Because because the things you were experiencing emotionally and spiritually alongside. Your cooking was super obvious. I was like oh. This is like a moment for her. The like it rose it. It has holes on the inside like it's close to it. I mean it was just. I found that to be honestly. I found that line of stories to be really hope filled for me a couple of months. We'll good. I'm glad and you know there's so many great teachers online. I follow the clever carrot yet her. Oh she's fantastic single recipe. I have followed of hers has turned out great. Oh she has a cookbook. Sourdot bacon cookbook. That's really good but you can also get her recipes on social media. And i reached out to her. And you know we've corresponded a little bit on social too. But yeah they make it easy and we. We did. The hardest products growing the starter. Yes that took a long time. Yeah and a lot of faith. I mean because you have to feed it right like a person yes like another pet. Yes it gives me sometimes. It gives me a whole lot more than my dogs and doesn't poop in the back.

"Just wherever I could style from wholesale was very new to me and I would see some things that I loved. I would see some things that if I just tweaked the you know asleep or tweet the him line customization for me has always been a big part of my house static. I love and know firsthand Dan. How a couple of changes here and there can change your entire look so I never even with a three year run and I think anybody who's listening whoever purchased for me? But I've never actually settled into the options that I was given. Because how's everything was very generic in as far as plus sized options if I found addressed that didn't look like What I normally got it would sell so well and then I'd be it would be like the hype you know for a month or so? Oh and then. I'd be looking back at the wholesaler. Like wait a minute you know. Where's the worker follow-up? Where's the next hype hot item and the responses it was just very Leisurely response about I believe that wholesalers are just starting according to see how much money they're like the last on the train to understand how big our dollars are in the plus community so so despite the success of the Boutique there was always just You know very sour And it just always left me with a very sour taste in in searching in sourcing for my boutique how options were not available and then quality. That's another thing that I pride myself on quality of the items would just drive me insane so aesthetically. I never got really what it was that I was looking for and I love my customers. I never you know wanted a customer to spend money and it not be spent well and that's just the stylists than me. I never ask a personal client to hold onto something. That won't make their closet better or improve their wardrobe. So that part of me just wouldn't settle into being the standard boutique owner and I forged gorged head and close the Boutique until I could come up with something that please me and something that I knew that the client would would love and appreciate. Wow and so today. You are launching your new clothing line low form and it is made in manufacturing in Nigeria. Now how did that come about so anybody. Who knows me knows that? I Adore Adore Ankara. Prints angst if you're not familiar. It is an authentic African cotton. That is usually it's tribal but it's it's printed in in Africa. Depending on the part of it is Is what differentiates the color. The design and authentic wax on camera is the best type of material that I've ever owned to date So if you know me personally I've been wearing airing on camera and it's been a supporter of businesses who sell on Kara's and twenty twelve There's been this whole wave of people will who just love to wear African things whether it comes from China or whether it comes from New York and for me I've always taken it a step further to ensure or that the the fabric that I was wearing was offensive so in my travels to Africa My journey's I is made it A passion and a collector if you if I could say the same so in my own closet before I ever designed owned at least ten to fifteen pieces of these types of garments made with this with this fabric so when and I was starting my line I would see uncle and I would see the color and it would just make me happy. It was one of those things that if you are a supporter the Laura you know you just never. Nobody ever looks the same which that something implicit fashion that. We're always looking to cheese the pieces since her time with. We're always looking for that if you're a smart shopper and a true Fashiony so you're looking for timeless pieces and so when I put my love for awkward together with with the timeless look of it together. I began to aesthetically designed things in my head that I wanted to be comfortable in. My research of the industry brought me to my current point in that we need something in our community that allows us to be free and what form is based on and a very relaxed setting. It's not body hugging curving it Just supports beautiful fabric being you know well made garment and beautiful fabric being put together to either either to stand not only the test of time. A lot of my samples have been washed ten times or more and they've never faded but also just things that we can use plus size the women while we're lounging relaxing in the grocery store The entire aesthetic is just the mere of my life. I loved to dress the but if you see me Monday through Friday I work from home so to throw on a task hand and Gucci fries. It takes me to a place safe because trust me. I've met men in the grocery store. Didn't have on stand. Eddie can't con- didn't have on short showing any parts of my body the and they have approached me for my number so there is a confidence level and just by that I feel like comes with this line of clothing and I'm sure needs I'm so proud of it. I'm so proud of what are put together. Not only because there's a part it's part of the industry that I felt was missing because I mean according to the industry by women don't lounge plus five women don't vacation plus women don't need swimsuit covers or any you know any type of Transitional pieces from you know resort to dinner or just travel TV we. We just don't do those things they feel like. We are Just stuck in a room in a dark room somewhere wearing our same moves you know around the house. And that's not the case we are vibrant women travel and we are all shapes and sizes so we deserve to be seen and I'm not black. It's not well. It's not a one dimensional color so you're wearing one of these pieces. It brings attention to you and I love. I love that about the line. God what is the size range in price points of your clothing line. The sizes are ten to twenty four four and we are looking to extend at some point and the price point we are lowest. Item is the crop top which starts at fifty five dollars and our highest priced. Item is one birth fraud. And that remarkable. Yes I feel like it is because they're timeless pieces that are made with quality which is in the STYLUS? Silas hat in me. One plus women to understand forever. Twenty one is not our everyday option and I love forever twenty one but we have to understand and that as a plus size woman understand that sure dollar is only GonNa go as far as your mindset with it so if you're set you know on just paying twenty dollars for everything a lot of times you're GonNa get twenty dollars worth quality but when you invest in something especially if you travel advocation teeth that ten years from now I mean again all the offer that I owned before I started designing I still own it and I will never sell it. Now you've been saying opera a lot and I just thought somebody listening might not even know what that is. Tell us what that is briefly. Yeah so I did explain earlier but again for anyone who missed it. Conqueror is a very high quality blend of cotton. It's it's made in Africa and depending on the country to try. It may vary in color or design and it's typically clean very colorful. It's attention getting it again high quality fabrics that truly last the test of time. Wow now there's a lot of people in the plus is community who have Boutiques you know started out like you selling selling wholesale clothing and their goal is to do what you're doing now coming out with the original line but they never get there so. This is a big accomplishment for you what has been one of your biggest obstacles getting this clothing line off the ground well and thank you for saying that because I absolutely want to shout out. I had some friends who own plus five batiks. Who are killing it? The boutique game has changed since I was involved in it. And it is every single day advancing so immorality cobby nine two six one one five. Those are all my friends. They are fashionable Schnabel. They have great options. I love them to death. I support them out of my own pocket. I don't ask for discounts so boutiques are still the ways They just unfortunately the hand that God's Zoom is not your own you have to your ad bay to the wholesalers and and if you get to be a big size Martin on Ahmar. Adt have actually talked to her wholesalers about changes here here and there so if you stay the course you can get to the point where they will put together design for you and furnish these things through through their wholesale channels so that you can fill so for anyone. Who is an aspiring boutique owner? Please understand that the industry changes every day. Okay stay the course. There could be many opportunities for you to design but I would say in response to your questions you need the biggest catalyst Outta list of designing your own clothing line especially if you're in a position where you don't have investors. You don't have a rich boyfriend. You don't have a big backing talking or any type of venture capital company ready to draw the money behind you if money you will do ten samples of the same design and they all look alike. But there's something about it that you don't like there's something about the neckline there's something something about the hemlock. There's something about the color that is not okay with you and because you have an aesthetic in your mind that you're trying to achieve leave money will keep you producing the same sample until you get it right so for anyone out there who was Willing to to invest in themselves. Do the work you their resources. Just know that if you feel like you've spent you know five five thousand dollars and you you're at a point where you need five thousand more if you trust your designs if you trust your good send the money because what you want will come Absolutely and now that you've launched now you have the task ahead of you with marketing getting no promotion. So what types of collaborations are you currently looking for. So Marketing and promotion is absolutely we my next step the garments are here. The initial Garmon our here. The designs are finalized and we won't be back Researching new designs for a few months. I've got a little bit of a breeder and this time I hope to to not only make a couple of key partnerships with influencers and bloggers but in addition to that I have put together a budget. I have a small little team like three of us. But I've put together a budget to spend on advertising social media advertising as well as we're working on a press box which will include some new promotional items With foreign is as a travel. I don't want to coin just travel but it is for a woman who does a lot of leisurely things and I think majority of the women who will lead these pieces are travelers. So we're putting together some smaller Goods homemade goods that will support support a woman the ideal reform women who on the go or just going towards a relaxed setting and wants to pack or even to use these particular ticket items at home and so we're going to create a press kit box that will include a few of these things. Get them out to some notable people. The one one thing that I will tell you what's being Just a previous fashion writer and having worked with a couple of influencers is that you don't. We need the influence or with a million followers. You don't need the influence that everybody loves to promote your I don. It's about the right person. The right fit if this is your baby and you spent the money you want a person that would best represent your brand so for the next every month that is our focus in just creating some hopefully some long term partnerships with plus US women because I never even though we started by ten plus when still have my heart but with plus women who loved the brand. As much as I I do that. See The vision and will promote with A certain integrity that we are looking for. So you're about to say now packages like beyond say listen. If a rolling cart art comes through Baton Rouge just know so. Do you have anything else happening that we can be on the lookout for a.

Welcome Kimberly Hi there. Hi Shimizu Wow. I'm listening to you and I'm thinking is that me she's talking. That's how are you good and I'm excited to have you on the show today because your new clothing line launch today so I thank you for giving me the very first interview and you launch like about an hour ago right. That's right right just a few minutes actually so this is hot off suppressed and we're so excited to celebrate you today but before we get into the clothing line less. Learn a little bit about you and your background so briefly. Tell us about your background before four. You were in the fashion you come from. Corporate America writes yes so I will say that fashion had absolutely been my. I love since I was younger The two things about me I feel like that have been steadfast. My entire higher life has been the fact that I've been plus size bigger than everybody else and that was something that I learned very early. as a teenager and that I still loved and had a passion For fashion just anything fashionable But unfortunately like like most you know African American households fashion and creative Just you know creativity in general. It's not not really faded at an early age so the things that You know I was pushed towards was education and so I have a bachelor of science and psychology with a minor in communications studies. I also have a masters of business in administration and health care and I have been in the corporate world per se since I was seventeen years old so oh ooh that always gets pushed year. Fashion gets pushed to the side in a Lotta household. I won't even just say African American but just any any household that has That doesn't have a lot of extra money to throw toward dream exactly. So how did you. You transition from Corporate America with a steady chick and benefits to a fashion stylist so the road has gone. Actually between the two I've been one of those individuals that have managed to be able to. Who Do both at the same time? I've been self employed entrepreneur full-time and then I've also been in the corporate world wishing rushing that I was doing something and fashion and so for the first time. Now I feel a bit of balance between the two because I'm still oh contracting. Still of course have to do whatever you have to do to furnish your dream But I would say that about twenty thirteen. I started looking into a possible way that I could put the same type of energy into what I love that I was putting into my eight to five My full time job or full time consulting job is clinical manager are in pharmaceutical healthcare. So that allows me a little bit of flexibility to be able to manage my sites sites manage my workload and then go between the two as needed so the healthy balance is something that I believe in talking even just to you and most of the pioneers that work in this industry. It's something that Come with time you learn and and I've you know unfortunately been extreme on both ends. But in this particular season I feel that the The knee to launch was with with a self acceptance that Kimberly. You aren't going to be that entrepreneur north. You WanNa be full-time ready to go like you want to be right now. And so because of I've worn many hats because says I'm now designer fashion designer. I needed to have that honest talk with myself. So the launch. I would say two thousand thirteen I started looking into it. I was there was something growing inside of me. That craved fashioned wanted it all day long and in two thousand fourteen. I launched my Boutique Taylor Boutique and shot out to all the supporters of chaos boutique. It had good three year run John when boutiques were not as common they are now and so from there we we were able to forge. You know the way to where I currently and In a good healthy again. I'll say Stephen between the two. The two I don't WanNa say evil evil forces but corporate and then what you love You have to find some determining you know dropping determining lines between the two and understand what demand they both need now when you initially got into fashion as a Stahl well is you. Were you know for everybody. Not necessarily the niche market. So what made you want to specialize alive and focus on the plus size industry so the focus for plus size personally. It's always been there but a lot of times. If you have a look for stashing it will go beyond just aside. My I took a leap of faith when I started styling and I open myself up because I never wanted to just be able to style a big girl all I wanted to understand fashioned from all points of view and the very funny thing about styling is that every single person in has those same insecurities. It's just that the plus size industry we talk about them more because of the shortage of resources verses that we have to file ourselves to quote ourselves to you know give ourselves that fashion that craving that we all that a lot of us have to look different to be beautiful. So if you're styling a size eight you would never in a million years think that you would hear them. Say why I don't really WANNA show my arms. I have a problem with my leg. You know so it just. I'm happy for those experiences because it it it expressed to me that We all have something in common regardless of the size. It's just you know we mask it differently and We're all pushing towards the same. I think look and fighting those same insecurity and you are based in Houston Texas right. Yes I'm based in you then. I'm a true southern girl. I when I met you I I live in New Orleans so I actually had I've lived in Atlanta. I've lived in quite a few places but currently Houston his where I call home so now tell me about the plus community and Houston Texas. 'cause you were doing a lot of things out there. Contributing to building that community missy be plus community in Houston. Texas Texas is that it's a beautiful community Many shapes and sizes and faces of plus it has had several different. I don't WANNA say Looks or Different timing as far as where they're at and how they wound but we have had a fair share ear of beautiful experiences beautiful events. We aren't quite where Atlanta and I was always one of those people that wanted to to speak the same opportunities happen and you send that happened in Atlanta because we have the same amount of people we have the same type of urban mix mix We've got the size the communities here so But we're just a bit more southern a bit slower and not a- as fashion forward in the sense of willing to do the work per se and I can say that just in my own experience Manson having been a you know like you said a pioneer in trying to build a community up. So it's unfortunate that you know we can say size does not always matter because Atlanta's a smaller city and they've they I don't wanNA focus on Atlanta but I will say that Houston Houston should be right there so in this current time I would say that's a plus community has not necessarily died down but but we've all taken I think step back because we're number one exhausted we're still looking for those opportunities and we have so much talent in this city that unfortunately we get passed over because the the greater or The cities with the better turn out and You know better placement seems to be. Unfortunately they seem to be considered I now even though. Oh you are from Texas you were very good with traveling and networking and getting your name out because you have accomplished a lot in five short years so tell us about some of your notable brand partnerships that you were able to do so thank you for recognising that. That is one of the things in your previous question that I would attribute to movement and Growth. I would always say that travel in. This industry is huge it one curvy weekend. One chance of meeting in can turn Your entire perspective around as to what it is or who it is that you're working with and the opportunity he's you get and that is definitely been the Story of Mine Tired Journey. I never sat in one place waiting for something to happen to me. I would hear about an event see an event and I would book the ticket it and I would go and the people that were around me. I let them know because I love networking in numbers. I've bought brought whole group of ladies from the Houston to Atlanta Paul groups of ladies from Houston to New York So because of my willingness to invest in whatever it is that I'm doing and to travel more I have worked with some very notable brands and plus and even beyond plus Route one zero seven which I love shot out to Marie. I just adore her. We've done some great work. Mony See. WHO's one of my mentors We've done some beautiful work in Houston and even better in New York Sean Nelson who actually trained me in in the stylists world. I've traveled to Atlanta a couple of different times. I worked hip hop world wards. I've worked Just really whatever it was she needed at the time because she's very Very exclusive with how she picks her team and I mean that's you know that's a lesson for another day but I did learn that from her. That who you have with you and supporting US important. So when the big things needed to be done Sean would definitely build a team that sometimes considered me to get things done so and I've actually been able to blog even and just from those moments blog for her so Atlanta Houston la Sorry Atlanta New York. LA Those individual places have brought me so much success in like you said just five six years and initially used started off with a boutique selling wholesale clothing. Now why did you discontinue you. That brand was then that you started with the vision for wanting to start your own line or it. He just happened organically. How did that transition happen? So in In twenty fourteen is actually actually win. Two I was launched February twenty fourteen and I was very new to the wholesale world I had styled and most the time when I was dialing it was from big big box stores online stores.
