Dressing the Part
As I continue to gain confidence in my skills, business, health and overall life, I decided to start dressing the part of a "fashion designer." There is no one who will promote your business and yourself more than you, so why not promote your designs yourself.
I went out in my design (see above picture) yesterday and I got two compliments at the post office, both on the dress and my talent. Of all places, the post office. I walked up to the teller and instantly she commented how pretty the dress was and I told her I made it and someone in line behind me commented "you made that, it's a really cute print." When I left, I thanked them both and was beaming.
I suppose the next step is to let people know I can make them one to try to get orders, but I don't want to be intrusive. I figure if they were really interested they would ask. But for now I couldn't be happier with my decision to start doing some shameless self-promotion by wearing my designs out. Hopefully, no one steals the clothes right off my back, hehehe.
