2016 was quite the year for Velvet + Vinyl.
We took our first timid steps in to the arena of fashion blogs when we relaunched in March and since then the journey has been the sweetest ride.
Melissa and Kristin were kind enough to eagerly join me after I proposed an idea for a blog that combined fashion, music and a glimpse at inspirational lifestyle content and the success we have had to date is reflective of their willingness to pour their hearts and souls in to this project. These girls have been my rock this year and are a fundamental part of this project. Grateful is an understatement.
We hired Baylee, our wonderful social media intern in June and brought our girl gang full circle last month when Kristy, Annie and Gabrielle became a part of the team.
We had the privilege and the pleasure of working with a range of incredible brands: Urban Outfitters, LA Lady Magazine, Stories Collective, Society Gal, Joseph, Sarah Donofrio of S15 Project Runway, Exes and Lenachka. Our work was featured by Nordstrom Rack, Batiste Hair Products, Rebel Soul and a few others.
We embraced our strengths and learned from our weaknesses and improved as a team and as a publication.
I believe whole-heartedly that this girl gang is on the verge of greatness, and I cannot wait to see what 2017 has in store. The month of January is jam packed with exciting projects and collaborations that we can’t wait to share with you. Thanks a million to all our readers who have supported us to this point! Xo.
