As some of you may know, I now have an online store! It officially opened on July 1st and I’ve always had the entrepreneur bug in my head. I think this is a great way to spark that plug. I’m selling graphic tees, crop tops for the ladies and iPhone cases! Each product is designed by me which is something I’m extremely proud of. I get to design and sell right from home, it really is an awesome feeling!
The theme of my first collection is “Petty.” I chose to design around this word because of current events happening in the world, particularly what’s going on in the United States. For example, police are not being held accountable for their poor, irrational decisions when pulling the trigger on people of color. The Philando Castile case is something that truly hurt the world. A citizen who was licensed to carry and went above and beyond by informing the officer he was licensed to carry and somehow he still gets shot? It’s an ugly image of America right now that I’m sure has other Countries looking at us like were still in the 1930’s.
I also get a little political with the collection to get people to think. We all have a little petty ways in us and I wanted to create something, not just for trend but for lifestyle purposes. It’s not the name of my clothing line, just something for VernonsBlog store. I hope you can connect in some way and enjoy it. You can click the ‘shop’ tab at the top of my blog and it will take you directly to my online store or just click here. I hope your inspired as much as I am and I hope your Summer 2017 is going great so far!
