Fashion Blogger... or Whatever

Sister, Sister...

When I first started Doll Shoppe, it was called "The Doll Clothing Shoppe". All of my items for sell were placed on a mannequin and photographed. I started researching other online vintage stores and eBay stores and noticed that the most successful ones always use a live model. Which makes sense because you can see how the garment fits better and you get an idea of how you can style it as well. I made the decision that I would no longer use a mannequin to display my clothes on the website (which at the time was only eBay). Problem was finding a consistent model (other than myself) to use. After using a few people I decided.. hol' up! I have a little sister who is pretty and petite. Granted she is only 5'0 she was perfect! Her name is Treyla. Yes, she is my real life sister. Same mother different fathers (don't judge my mama ha!) Anyway, when we took the first pictures she had just had a baby about 6 months ago and hell you really couldn't tell unless I shared that with you.. Here are some of the first items we photographed.

She had never modeled before and I had never photographed before so the first time was very funny. Because on alot of the shots what she thought was sexy was very.. well I hate to use the word but retarded looking. lol.. Needless to say we worked it out and she has gone on to be the face of Doll Shoppe. She is in 95% of the pictures for the site. I style her and shoot her. We are a team. She has made me a lot of money (don't worry I'm not completely pimping her.. she gets a percentage lol)

You all have no idea how appreciative I am of her and how much she goes out of her way to help me. When this thing blows she won't have to worry about anything. Because she is definitely shooting with my in the gym. Treyla if you are reading this. Once, again thank you.. nothing can ever express my sincere gratitude for what you have done and what you do for my business. I love you!

Making my dreams come true,
