Skirt Shop Lombard & Fifth | Top Zara (older) | Necklace Chanel (borrowed) | Heels DSW (older) |
Life has been such a hectic mix of juggling, multitasking and not sleeping for the past two months, that I have somehow completely overlooked writing about my big news on this blog! I wanted to wait to share until everything was official, because I think I still can’t believe it’s actually real, but I am now officially a co owner of an online boutique – Shop Lombard & Fifth! Ahh!! Today marks one week since our opening and it has been quiet a thrilling ride so far! My amazing partners (friend + hubby) and came up with the idea over a glass of wine one night, as most of our brain storming sessions usually go. We were shooting around yet another round of ideas, only this one really stuck! I am usually not a risk taker at all, in fact if you ever see me in Vegas, I am probably giving my husband Eric a hard time about betting a $5 hand of black jack. But for some reason this idea just felt right from the start. And ever since, so have the countless hours, (most done late night), that I have poured into it. I can’t tell you how amazing it feels to now see it come to life. And it is true what they say, “Love what you do, and you’ll never work a day in your life”. I could work on this business 12 hours a day if I could and would only be excited to do the same the next day. Hope some day soon that will be a reality. For those of you who have given us absolutely amazing support and feedback on the shop, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. And for those who don’t follow me on Instagram and haven’t heard this news yet, I hope you’ll check us out! I will be featuring our items here weekly and if you would like a daily feed of everything Shop Lombard & Fifth related, follow our Instagram Page @shoplombardandfifth.
Can we talk about this amazing midi skirt for a second? The second I saw it, I knew we had to order it for the shop. It screams ‘lady like’ and makes me want to twirl, so naturally we had to have it. It comes in two colors and you can shop it directly HERE.
Thanks for reading and for all the love and support!!
PS – A huge ‘thank you’ to five amazing blogger gals/my models who have been amazingly generous with their time on our shoots. Please check out their great blogs (links above under their photos)
