It has been a very long time since I have done a blog post and I so aplogize. Life has been a bit crazy since the last time I posted. Black and Grey Boutique is doing well. I am still marketing the branding to get the word out and get the buzz going. Sales I can say are not so good. I shortly realized that you do at times have to pay for great advertising and wow it is expensive. As you may know I did not get business loans for a reason. I did not want to have the stress of having to pay it back. So I am so glad that I did not go down that road. This year I planned ahead that sales may not come over night so my goal was to grow the brand and get the word out to the world then hope that in 2015 the sales will come. Talking to my business advisors I knew to expect this. For 2015 I do have a great deal in the pipeline. I got an exclusive deal with a new designer to showcase her line on our site and we are set to premier during New York Fashion Week in Feburary 2015 so I am so excited. I am also developing an iphone/android app as well so I am real excited about that as well. 2014 is the year of beginning and growth and 2015 will be the year that I hope to see the results of my hard labor. For now go check out my website, and also the boutique facebook page and spread the word.
Yes Spring is finally here for a few of us and I am so excited. I wish we all had some Spring weather but hopefully soon we all will. My boutique is offering so many cute items for the Spring and Summer I can’t help but share these fabulous pieces with all my readers. Come and visit our store site to check these great pieces out. New fashions are added every week and we also got a great sale going on as well. Let’s give Spring a huge and most needed welcome!!!
It’s been a busy few months since I last wrote. The business is going great. My team is doing very well and since they have taken over my social media marketing my social media presence has increase ten fold. Sales are still slow due to the need to increase the web traffic to my actual website which we are doing a lot of things to increase web traffic. I can still say that this has been a learning experience and I am still learning. I am so glad that I set my business up in a way that I do not have to worry about paying anyone back or worrying about bank loans when you have things like that over your head I believe the dream can turn into a nightmare. For those of you that are still contemplating starting your own online fashion e-commerce business if you need any advice let me know I will be glad to help you.
The time is here!!!

2014 has been a blessing so far. Black and Grey Boutique is going to open very shortly I am just in the process of adding some really great products to the site before launching. The only thing at this point that I worry about is if everyone will agree on the products that I chose to sell.The hardest part is seeing through other people’s eyes. I have been doing a lot of trend research and I can tell you it is a lot to take in. I want to thank all of you that has followed my journey from start to finish and just continue to wish me all the luck. The website is up so you all can continue to visit. I would do what Beyonce did and just open without telling anyone but I am not as popular or a big superstar like she is (lol). So I will give you all a hint. Black and Grey Boutique will be opening no later than February. So between now and then keep a look out.
