Dottie Adele: Celebrating One Month!

It's a little hard for me to believe, but one month ago today, I opened up my Etsy shop, Dottie Adele!  I have had an absolutely wonderful first month, with the support of lots of loyal friends and being able to work with many new customers.  I have loved every second.  And the even greater thing is I've only just begun!  To be able to put my ideas into tangible form and then see other women wearing them has been a great joy and a great gift.

A few of my customers from the last month have been kind enough to send me some pics of them rocking what they've purchased.  And because I think they are looking so fine, I'd like to show them off to you!

Whitney wears: Chambray Drawstring Skirt (still some available in small, medium, large)
And wore it again here! (I can't decide which way is cuter...it may be a tie)

Brittany wears:  Striped Rib Knit Jersey Dress (still available in small and large)
And also celebrates her birthday at the office with the largest pan of macaroni and cheese of all time (and yes, I work in the same office with her and got to eat about 1/8th of that pan myself.  I still dream about it.)

Kendra (you know her from A Grimm Tale) wears:  Heart-Shaped Waistband Skirt in Burnt Orange (also available in Teal)

And she's rocking it!  Also, I want her earrings.

My friend Sam (you know her from Love Never Fails) has a Heart-Shaped Waistband Skirt in Teal, but didn't have time to snap a pic.  Instead, she sent me this review, which is just too kind:
"Purchasing my heart shaped skirt from Dottie Adele was probably one of my best purchases of the summer! This piece of awesomeness is one of a kind and truly is a great skirt for women of all shapes and sizes. As a curvier girl, the skirt hits me in all the right places to show off some of my best assests. Yeah, you know what I'm talkin' about.. covers my love handles and thunder thighs, while making my wasit look trim and sleek. Also, the color is so striking, people can't help but notice. I've gotten heaps of compliments on it and I fully intend on rocking it into the winter season with some cute tights and stellar boots. Thanks Valerie for creating an amazing piece of clothing and making me feel all sorts of amazing!"

I have started working on a new collection for fall that will be listed in the shop in a matter of weeks, but until then, I'd like to celebrate the end of summer with a 20% discount on everything in the shop right now.  Just use the code ENDOFSUMMER20 today through September 15 for some deals!  (P.S. With tights and a cardigan, most of these pieces can carry you right into fall!)

Thank you so much for visiting!
