Okay, let’s first chat verbiage. I know some people think that they have a hard time pulling off things that are “boxy”. But, we're here to tell you that you can pull it off. No, seriously. Just think of these pieces as less "boxy" and more "structured." Our CLOVER dress is everything and her structured skirt makes her perfect for all the layering. Check out the way Kayla styled this look and repeat. We promise you’ve got this!

The next style is a the Lily. She is a slip like dress that is literally the perfect layering piece. The Lily makes our 90’s hearts so happy because you can literally wear her in so many ways. Slip dresses can look chic layered over your fall sweaters, but they are also the perfect base to throw on sweaters, tees, and all the layers.

Paisley Raye Styling Inspiration

Hey Beauties!

We wanted to switch things up a bit and share with you some styling inspiration from some of our favorite bloggers! We have so many beautiful pieces for Spring and we hand picked a few of them to find the perfect inspiration! 

With the weather changing for most of you now ( I know you east coasters have been struggling to find Spring), it's a great time to think about what type of pieces you want to add to your wardrobe, and think about HOW you would wear them! 

Sharing these inspiration ideas is so helpful (at least to us) to really visualize how to wear a new piece and helps us think outside the box on how to style a beautiful PR piece we may already own!

How do I form my business? You'll want to first think about if you want to be a sole proprietor {a person who is the sole owner of a business, gets to keep all the profits after tax has been paid, but liable for all losses}. or if you want to incorporate {if you want your business organization to be seen as a separate legal entity under state law}. The next step would be to file for an EIN number - this protects your identity. You can apply for free HEREYou'll then want to contact your state to see what type of sales tax permit is required - or if at all. Here is a great resource regarding registering for a sales tax permit in every state - SOS here!  The next step you'll have to take is to apply for a business license. Each state, city, and county are different so be sure that you start at a state level, then county, then city. This article is a great resource to help you better understand this process. 
How do I get inventory? After you've formed your business it is time to start researching your wholesale options. You will use your state sales tax permit number to apply. There are many resources out there when it comes to wholesaling items in your boutique. You want to first be sure that the quality is there. Customers will not shop with you again if your products fall apart after first wear. So it is extra important to be sure that your research your vendors - make sure they have a great return and exchange policy, and that their customer service contact is easy to locate. You can first start local. See what vendors are in your area and see who would like to collaborate with you. Be sure that you have defined who your ideal customer is and don't be scared to poll them. The more information you have before purchasing your inventory the better. If you can't collaborate locally you'll want to find wholesale markets - a lot of cities do them. Here are a few of my favorite Markets: Westcoast Markets: Seattle, Las Vegas Middle America Markets: Dallas, Chicago East Coast Markets: Atlanta, New York                                                                                                                                                        
Budget, budget, budget! This is not everyone's favorite topic but it is definitely one of the most important. Having a clear budget when starting the business is going to keep you on track and out of the red. Plan your budgets for marketing, accounting, retail, and any other expense you'll have. You should be prepared to spend money but also protect it, as it is one of the most valuable resources you have. 
Stay organized! You'll want to be sure that you have an organized back end and office space. Not only will you be more productive but you will also keep yourself on task and on track. There are a ton of resources for you to start with and keep you organized. One of my FAVORITE planners is HERE- seriously though this planner saved my life! When it comes to social media you'll want to schedule your content ahead of time to help with time management. I suggest picking one day a week where you'll create the content {take photos} and then one day when you schedule the posts to your social media platforms. Schedule your posts easily with Cinchshare here! 
It's Tax Time - now what?! Keeping spreadsheets, using bookkeeping software etc. is KEY to a successful start-up. You need to know what your profits and loss are, and you definitely need to know what your quarterly taxes should be. Being sure that you have all of your business info ready, and that you can access it at anytime is super important.

Spring Spotlight: The Paisley Raye Lotus Dress

Today we wanted to share with you a big announcement about a piece of Paisley Raye clothing that is new to the shop!! This spring style gives us all the feels! It's always so exciting when we get a new shipment because we are still new to Paisley Raye! New shipments mean new exciting pieces we may not have seen in person before! It's so fun to open the boxes of new clothing together. We always talk about colors, prints, and our initial loves! 

The Lotus dress isn't really like any of the other dresses we have, and that is why we were so drawn to it! It has an amazing vintage flair and perfect retro fit. The high neck really makes this dress stand out. It's a mock turtleneck that is super flattering and helps show off A-Line shape of this dress. I mean who doesn't love a swing dress? So, what is a swing dress? A swing dress is all about the flowy dress with the perfect A-line shape and drape. Instead of the top part of the “A” shape hugging your waist, it will accentuate those curves and hug your chest and then the fabric will bell out below. This give the dress all the movement and so much potential - the dress will “swing” when you move and expecially when you dance! The sleeves have an amazing trumpet shape that are sooo feminine and beautiful!

Why Paisley Raye and who is Kayla?

Hello everyone! It has been a while since we did a check-in and really went over why this brand and stylist are so fabulous! I mean, although Kayla is a mother, forever student, wife, leader, sister, and friend she is also passionate about helping others find freedom through fashion. Paisley Raye has done that for many women all over the country so why not you? 

Kayla Hive.png

Kayla was the little girl with a free spirit that always fought for what was right. She could be found expressing herself through fashion, wild hair color, or anything artistic that helped her to stand out from the crowd. Deeply passionate about helping others Kayla decided to create a safe and comfortable space to nudge her customers out of their comfort zones. This is how Hive Beauty Box was born. Having battled body image issues for the better part of her life she knew there needed to be this space. A space to be yourself and find yourself through fashion. With over a decade of professional makeup artistry and personal styling experience Kayla is excited to bring these skills to you and your friends. She offers in person or online sessions so that you don't have to leave the comfort of your own home. We all know how scary it is sometimes going out of your comfort zone and trying a new style or just shopping in general. In studio sessions are also available. You can bring your friends and update your wardrobes together! How fun is that?

Why do I love Direct Sales and having a team!?

As most of you know I have been with a company previous to Paisley Raye where I was also a leader of a large team. It was a lot of fun and very hard decision to move on and essentially start over. I knew I had to. When I no longer aligned with corporate and felt that I was constantly putting out fires instead of leading my team... it was time. I am a go with your gut kind of girl and when I make a decision I go ALL IN! I am not a person who dips her toe in to the water before jumping in. I am extremely passionate and connect deeply. This is both my strength and weakness, although as I grow older I know it as more often a strength. So, why direct sales? Watch the video below and scroll on... 

Paisley Raye has given me the opportunity to not only sell clothing again that I believe in {They are made in the USA and give back} - That's a big deal but not the only reason I chose them. The opportunity for growth and building something I am proud of all while helping others do the same. That is why I chose direct sales and I would again and again. The community and friendships I have gained through this adventure is nothing short of invaluable. I am so happy to be a Paisley Raye Stylist and humbled to be on this journey with such strong and amazing women. Let's do this beauties and blaze a trail of bravery along the way.

How I quit my day job - Join me in business!

Hello beauty babes and welcome to one of my favorites aspects of what I do! I LOVE the fact that I get to work alongside amazing, strong, and successful women every single day. Today, i'm chatting with you about how I quit my day job and work from home! I mean who doesn't want the flexibility to be able to create their own schedule and manage their time the way they see fit, right? I make over 6 figures a year all while getting to do what I love, and I have created a million dollar downline all from the comfort of my home! Guess what, there is no magic to any of this! So here are is how I did it! Hint, watch the video first and then keep scrolling... 

How cool is it that I got to be featured by Lynn, owner of Million $ Party Girl!? If you don't follow Lynn on Facebook you should HERE! She is one of the kindest people ever, so insightful and we instantly bonded over our love for wine! 

You heard that right, I quit my day job just six months after going in to business. This was not something that happened by accident. I was strategic with my time and made sure that I was consistent with my business. I am constantly looking at different ways to market my business and found some amazing tips and tricks along the way. I will share my top 5 below with all of you! 

  1. Brand Yourself
    1. Even there there are many people doing what you do- nobody can do it like you! 
    2. Find what you're good at and make that your cohesive voice. 
  2. Niche Down
    1. What specific aspect of the business do you want to become an expert in?
    2. Take that specific area of expertise and learn everything you can about it.
    3. DO NOT have too many areas of focus this will create chaos and disorganization.
  3. Time Management
    1. Create a schedule and calendar that you can stay consistent with. 
    2. Set business hours and stick to them.
    3. Schedule posts and content.
  4. Have Realistic Expectations
    1. Set goals that pertain to the allotted time you have to put in to your business.
    2. What you put in to your business is what you will get out of it- part-time work will get you a part-time income. Keep this in mind when starting any business. 
  5. Stay Consistent
    1. Be sure your are posting to social media and you have an online presence daily. 
    2. There will always be slow times don't let this discourage you- stay consistent and you'll be successful. 

I hope this was helpful in guiding you to follow your dreams and take that leap of faith to follow your heart and work from home.
