How was your weekend, friends? Mine was filled with you guessed it — all things West & Lou. It has been so exciting this time around getting everything ready. We work morning to night but it’s not exhausting, it’s energizing somehow. In fact, I have to say the second time around might be more fun. I’ve got a post brewing in my head about doing things the second time around that hopefully will come out into a post this week. I say hopefully because words in my head can be stubborn sometimes. I make no promises about these thoughts in my head.
Speaking of the shop, after a lot of drama with permits and construction we now have an opening date! October 30th we will open our doors and we will launch online — AKA next Thursday. Just three days after my 30th birthday. Don’t worry, I’ve already got my birthday presents from the shop picked out and waiting for me. (I’m sure you were losing a lot of sleep over what I’d buy myself for my birthday.) And if you are a townie or live close by (*cough* Dallas) you are invited to a preview event the evening before, October 29th from 5:30 to 8:30!
Okay now onto this dress. Like a moth to the flame, I was drawn to this shift dress when I saw it on the rack. Lord knows I love a dress with sleeves and this one was in my current color obsession of black and white. Or lack of color, I guess I should say. Also, it matches our windows at the shop. Done deal.
