Mini Season has Arrived

Hello Again!
Wowzers has it been a crazy few weeks! Between College hopping, mini party hopping, photo shoots, shopping and designing we have been all over the map!
On March 7th & 8th, I had a mini set up at Union College in Schenectady NY. We had the skirts displayed in their student union from 9am to 4pm both days. We talked with students about fashion and heard what they had to say about my skirts. It was a great event and hopefully we gained a lot of new exposure. On March 10th I attended Oneonta State College with my mini skirts. Thanks to my college roommate, Kara and all her help (shout out to my girl kar lol) I was able to bring racks and tables of mini skirts and have my own venue at their Annual Student Fashion Show. Once again it was a blast and we both had fun chatting it up with girls who also have a “passion for fashion”. I want to thank both Union College and Oneonta State for welcoming “Mary Carroll” skirts onto their campuses!
This past Sunday I went to a fabric mill in Massachusetts! They had fabric wall to wall! All different types, colors, prints, textures…I didn’t know where to look first! But after making about 50 laps around the place and spending a few hours checking everything out, I selected a bunch of new funky prints! Lets just say theres alot of work ahead of us ☺
This week I had a mini skirt party at my girlfriend Michelles’ house. Her mother designs her own jewelry so we combined the two for a mini/jewelry party. Check out her facebook page: Beadutiful (Jewelry)
Last night I had an amazing photo shoot with Kevin DeMassio Photography. It was a last minute shoot but after getting everything organized it turned out amazingggg. Our timing was perfect --we actually caught the sun set and got some beautiful natural backgrounds. Courtney Vogel helped out with the hair and makeup and the girls looked gorgeous! Thank you Courtney ☺ Also, the two models did a great job! Being in front of the camera at first is very nerve racking because you just don’t know what to do. You try and act yourself but it’s hard when there’s a camera directly in front of you lol. After the models got warmed up they did a great job !! Thank you girls and thank you Kevin!
On March 29th we will be at Plush Salon in Scotia NY for a “Girls Night Out Event”. There will be about 17 different vendors coming together to celebrate being femmie and girlie! They range from hair supplies, jewelry, food, skirts make up, etc. Feel free to stop by and check it out ☺
Lastly, I believe the first week in April I have a small article appearing in the University at Buffalo “Great Grads” section. I’m not 100% sure on the details but I will let you know. Its something very small but still very exciting ☺
Please stay tuned for a lot of new updates will be appearing on the website soon! Ladies, tis the season to wear those Fun, Funky & Fashionable mini skirts you have in your closet so Enjoy! And if you don’t have one yet… Well Good News! I know this great website you can shop at . Happy Spring!
