Hey y'all it's been a long time coming but I am finally back and so much has changed since my last post but HERE.I.AM. So if y'all knew me from tha 99 and 2000 lol just kidding but foreal, if you've been with the brand from the beginning then you know that Sultry B started as an online boutique before I began to blog. Needless to say, we're back up and running and let me just tell you it's been a process. Getting a business up and running ain't no joke y'all but I'm thankful to have the creative vision and ability to work in my passions. These past few months I've had so much time to focus on my craft and brand since I officially quit my job back in April. I had been there for almost 8 year was just tired of the same routine and not being fulfilled by my job duties. I had gotten really comfortable there and I just didn't want to be stagnant, so I left. The choice wasn't instant because I honestly had been debating on it for a little over a year but was afraid to leave. No lie, the thought of not having a consistent check made me stay longer but then I got to a point where I was like I can't afford to sit on my gift and not know what I could build. It had gotten so bad at work which caused me to become really frustrated and that's when I knew I couldn't wait any longer. Some days I'd walk in the building and my attitude would change just like that. Now don't get me wrong I'd been in my own personal funk some days not wanting to talk or even being rude and I didn't want to continue in it. But prior to leaving I had talked to my mentor about it and he didn't believe me when I told him until he consistently started to see me coming in early, granted I've actually been working with him for almost 3 years now. Crazy thing is when I quit maybe the second week I started working full-time at the Shop, things just didn't seem to go as smoothly as I though, and that's when my doubt came in. It just seemed like I could do nothing right, my mentor was frustrated with me which caused me to push back a little in coming in as I had started. Crazy thing is, I'm actually just like my mentor in some ways. I just know when to give space and so everything is back A-1. Since making this move I've been able to sew a lot more and will be debuting my first dress from my handmade collection this year and I am super excited about it because it's really a dream! It's really amazing when I reflect on how things come full circle. I remember being in middle school creating fashion portfolios from catalogs and magazines, watching the Style channel to check out the latest designers and their collections, and literally having my mom not be able to shop for me because I guess I had a unique sense of style. lol Now, I have my own brand that I work in and work for, it's really crazy when I think about it. But without further adieu, Welcome to Sultry B and be sure check out my shop and grab something that you like.
P.S. If you like the dress pictured in this post then guess what? It's available and also in plus size! I'll just say you can't go wrong with this look baby, trust me!
