So here it is, our VERY first blog on our brand new sparkly website. For those of you who don't know me, my name is Donna Camera & I own La Vida Boutique. I started my business way back in 1999 when was fresh out of Uni with the help of my lovely Mum. My family have always had retail businesses so I learnt my trade in fashion retail probably before I learnt to walk & talk! Being on the shop floor and serving my customers is the most natural thing in the world to me and the part of the businesses I treasure the most. Trading on the high street has changed beyond belief in the fifteen years we have been in business and we have had to change with it. The internet has changed our business and changed the way we shop forever. So I have been busily teaching myself how to be an online retailing & social media expert! Over the last year I have been working on designing a brand new spankingly sparkly website for us that hopefully shows our little shops big personality out there on the world wide web. I have included a little bit about us (big up my team of La Vida Ladies), we have modelled many of our fabulous clothes ourselves (we are all different sizes, heights & ages) to give you an idea on how our clothing might look on you. We are posting daily on instagram, facebook & twitter (feel free to follow us if you haven't already)
This year we have also been awarded the Business Matters 'Retailer of the Year in Sussex' which we are over the moon about.
On the 22nd October we will be celebrating our 15 years in business by throwing an afternoon and evening vintage inspired tea party with the help of our lovely friends at Pretty Things Horsham. There will be cake, tea, pink bubbles and goodie bags for the first 30 customers to make a purchase as well as 15% off in-store. We would love you to join us. RSVP me back at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can add you to our party list.
