Inspiration

Nashville is the No. 2 most popular place to celebrate a bachelorette party in the country and it's such a young city where I'm constantly surrounded by my "20-something" friends getting engaged and married. We have cool new curated wedding boutiques and fashion shops popping up left and right, but what are we missing? A place where a woman can come in and be treated like the QUEEN she really is, while she spoils herself with frilly little sexy things like lingerie for her upcoming wedding or anniversary...or just because.

In Nashville we shop small; we shop local. There is no need to feel awkward or generic by shopping big brand lingerie inside of a mall. Now you can jump online, visit a pop-up, and eventually come to our storefront to discover your favorite new piece and know that you are one of a few who have it, and meet the person who picked it out or made it just for you.

The Dream

 It is my dream to offer more products, and move into a brick and mortar space. I want you to be able to touch and feel the products, and try things on in a boutique that has a uniquely Nashville flair. We will play music by the female icons who inspire us like Lana Del Rey, Maren Morris, Banks, Kacey Musgraves, and more. The interior will be bright, and have a careful blend of glamour and vintage appeal-this ain't no Hustler store. Ideally, I would like to position myself in East Nashville or Germantown, but I need your help to get there! I am campaigning for funds to build my inventory and attain a few month's rent for the brick and mortar space.

Mission

Lady. is where you will get that one of a kind experience and customer service that I spent years learning about in my 10 years working in hospitality. It's where I will put my styling and design skills to work creating jewelry pieces and merchandising the newest trends in sizes and prices that can appeal to everyone. All for you, my customer. Lastly,  I intend to use the shop to raise awareness, funds, and supplies for various female driven initiatives so that we can help our fellow ladies in need around the world.

 Lady. is intended to meet the needs of all women looking for something special or elegant, with an aesthetic that is geared towards the female millennial market.

Products

I plan to carry trendy lingerie and swim styles at a value, as well as limited edition high-end pieces sourced from the best producers in North America and Europe. It couldn't be an indie lingerie shop without also offering niche collections from some small American designers, along with some unique "Lady." brand pieces designed by myself and in collaboration with local craftsmen. All jewelry will fall from $15-$80 and be completely handmade, and vintage pieces will vary. I intend to make it easier for customers to find their best fit by offering many cup and band sizes, from petite to plus size, because I know what it's like to fall in the "in-between".  I am also very excited to reveal is my partnership with a maker who specializes in beautiful nursing bras, because being a mom doesn't mean having to sacrifice sexiness.

Updates

The Project FAQs

What kind of experience do you have? I have spent 10 years professionally working in all areas of the hospitality industry, catering to a customer's needs. I've specifically spent the last 2 years working in Sales and have in turn gathered a deeper understand of value, margins, ordering, brand positioning and marketing. My passions are found in the fashion industry, where I have spent the last 7 years independently working as a wardrobe stylist for photoshoots and the occasional fashion show in my spare time. I believe that I can combine these separate skills and years of experience to create a successful fashion boutique.

When will I receive my rewards? Rewards will be sent out within 6 weeks from the closing of the campaign. 

Can I specify my sizes? Yes. I will do my best to attain everyone's sizes and preferences to ensure that your reward fits you!

What female organizations do you hope to benefit? I hope to partner with organizations like the Malala Fund to help raise money for female education, IJM against Sex Trafficking, organizations against FGM, and gather clothes and supplies for women transitioning out of homelessness or seeking refuge from domestic violence. I will periodically sell items who's proceeds will go directly to a featured organization, and once in a brick and mortar occasionally set up a collection area for the donation of clothes or goods.
