Hello Knockouts, long time no post!
No, I haven't abandoned this blog. I've just been insanely busy lately. So much has gone on, and I have SO MUCH to tell you guys. It's insane.
For starters, Knockout Vintage Clothing is getting a total image overhaul for the fall! Since summer is a historically DEAD time for businesses, I'm taking advantage of the downtime to work on this. I'm changing up the color scheme, fonts, hiring new models, will be putting more effort into the styling, etc. etc. It's really overwhelming, but I know it'll be worth it.
For starters, what do you think of this logo?
Opposed to our current logo...
More vintage appeal? Yes? No? Tell me what you think.
So many little details like this to work on!
So what else is going on? I'm working on a couple websites for launch this fall - one dedicated to on-trend vintage, and one upscale classic one. REALLY excited about that because EBay just isn't what it used to be. It's too heavily saturated with crappy sellers, and a recent report shows EBay has lost 1/3 of it's traffic in the past year. 33% fewer viewers in just one year. That's INSANE!
So yes... websites, more in person sales, maybe more Etsy sales, whatever it takes. I'm still selling on EBay for now, but am hoping to phase them out within a year or so : ).
I got back into wardrobe styling and am currently working with a local alt. erotica company, Visual Vixens. You'll be hearing a LOT about them soon! I like their company vision - they're all about alt. models, but the nudity is light partial to implied only, opposed to blatant porn. And unlike certain other companies, their contracts are NON-EXCLUSIVE! They treat their girls better all around, so I'm honored to be working with them : ).
I've also been doing tfp's/tfcd's to build up my styling portfolio. That's been a lot of fun!
Knockout Vintage Clothing is doing a fashion show on Oct. 11th too! It's a charity benefit, so if you live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, go to the Church that night. It'll be fun. More info on that soon too.
Anyhow, lots of blogs to catch up on, so enough writing for now.
Many thanks to all you new readers out there! Don't be afraid to say hello : ).
