Personalized jewelry adds meaning to your jewelry box and makes gifting extra special (including the gifts you buy for yourself 😉 ). It allows us to remember special dates with roman numerals, showcase coordinates from a special trip, or honor those who serve or have served our country. Life is full of emotions; compliment your monogram with a word, phrase or hashtag.

When you find your soulmate, the date you become one is a treasure.

Ashley


What is your occupation outside of Initial Outfitters?

Elementary Teacher


What was the first thing that you purchased with your IO money?

I purchased a flat screen TV for my husband! It made me feel WONDERFUL to do something special for him because he works so hard for our family. He had been asking for that TV for years, and we finally had enough money saved up to purchase one.


What is the most significant thing you plan to do with your IO money?

I am planning on saving every cent of our IO money so that I can contribute to a down payment towards a new house! It will make me feel amazing to be not just be able to say “I had a part in buying this,” but to also know that I had a “why” that was powerful enough to make me not stop until it was completed.

Friends and Family


What does Initial Outfitters give you on a personal level that you don’t receive from your occupation?

Initial Outfitters has provided a way for me to share my faith in Jesus with others, which I don’t always have at my teaching job. Every time I share my “WHY” bag, I share about Jesus — that He has called me to give to those who are in need.


How do you feel that you are able to make a difference with your IO business?

By sharing IO opportunities with others and helping others achieve goals for themselves.
Sharing with others how the Lord has blessed me with extra money, new friends, and opportunities to talk about Jesus.
Giving to the Charlie’s Lunch Ministry, and encouraging others to give also.
Making people smile by hosting fun parties.

Dainty Layers

Dainty Layers


Minimalist layering is trending, and when done right it is far from boring. Simple pieces defined by metal choice, texture, and color create interest in an outfit and give you style. Remember clothes are well…just clothes, until they are accessorized! Accessories pull your look together and give you a put-together style that gets noticed.


Chokers are so popular right now as a top layer.

When layering in 3’s with a choker, the top layer should be the widest part of the layering set.

Fun Easter Baskets!

March 11th, 2016

Here comes Peter Cotton Tail hoppin’ down the bunny trail, hippity hoppity, Easter’s on its way! Easter comes early this year… can you believe it’s just two weeks away!? We are getting our Easter baskets ready here at Initial Outfitters. We all share fond memories of colorful Easter baskets full of candy and gifts as well as the egg hunts dressed in our Sunday best. From bright colored grass covered with plastic Easter eggs to cellophane wrapped baskets secured with a beautiful bow, it was the goodies inside that were highly anticipated. The baskets were pretty but once they served their purpose they ended up back in the attic until next year. That got us thinking… let’s offer a cute, yet practical product to be used as an Easter basket. One of our favorite classic totes, the Polka Dot Jute Tote, comes in two fun colors making it hard to choose which one. This bag can be used as a tote, an overnight bag, Barbie stowaway bin, road trip bag, or a place for your favorite things. Check out how our Easter baskets are coming along…tote style! 🙂

DIY: Spring Wreath

February 26th, 2016

 

spring trends


It’s DIY time, and with some new wooden monogram designs here at IO, our team decided to get crafty. One of our new designs includes a family name and initial combo that would look perfect on a wreath. There are so many themes when it comes to wreath making so don’t dwell too long on the design. For this DIY, flower pots were selected as the main theme and the décor of the wooden monogram followed. A crafters dream spray adhesive was discovered at Hobby Lobby that will adhere scrapbook paper to wood. With this design, use a natural or light stain and apply sparingly. This will allow the etched name to be seen on your wreath.


Materials used: Vine wreath, moss, artificial leaf vine, 3 mini flower pots, 3 stems of artificial flowers, floral wire, glue gun, spray adhesive, scrapbook paper (2 sheets), x-acto knife, cutting board, and wood stain.


Start with the vine wreath. First, glue the moss and leaves to the wreath. Next, wire the pots to the wreath and fill them with moss and flowers.

Cut scrapbook paper to fit the area inside the wooden square (you do not want glue to contact the wood that will be stained). Spray the adhesive all over the back of the printed paper and immediately press onto the cut-out letter, one section at a time. Smooth over the letter surface with fingers to secure the glue to the wood and allow to dry a few minutes.

Flip the wooden monogram to the back side on the cutting board and use the X-acto knife to cut off excess paper around the single initial. Once done, stain unfinished wood with a thick paper towel or rag.

Attach the wooden monogram to the vine wreath with floral wire. Your DIY is finished and ready to hang for your guests and family members to admire!

With creative juices flowing, two more wooden cutouts were painted, stained, sanded and attached to wreaths. Pictured on the left, a vine wreath simply decorated with dried flowers and leaves wired on. Pictured on the right, a foam form covered with moss and all decorations secured with floral pins only! Super easy!

Spring Fashion Trends 2016

February 19th, 2016

 

spring trends


The temperatures here in Alabama are saying spring has sprung! In light of the warmer weather, let’s explore a few of this year’s trends. For those of you not in Alabama, spring will come…we promise! Many of the trends have carried over from fall, just in spring colors and lighter-weight fabrics.


We have two colors of the year for 2016: Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue, which are cool and calm pastels. Play around mixing these pastels with navy, red, a rich peach/orange, or even summer white. Serenity Blue and Rose Quartz are complemented by silver or gold accessories. Keep it simple at the neckline with a classic personalized piece, or play it up with fringe. Get creative with a textured bracelet stack, and don't forget your purse! Our Lauryn sling and Addison tassel handbag are the perfect grab-and-go choices this spring.

Boyfriend jeans and plaid… Oh My! These two trends are so versatile and look great with our vintage collections as well as our silver and gold collections. Our Worth the Tassel necklace in vintage silver and our Rhapsody leather cuff look great with an oversized plaid shirt and tank. Not feeling the grunge look? Dress up your boyfriend jeans with a streamline jacket and our silvertone Best Fringe Forever necklace for a street savy style.

If jeans don't appeal to you then take a look around and you will find dresses in full swing… pun intended :). Showcase layers of jewelry and don't be afraid to mix metals. Bright gold combined with vintage gold bring this basic dress to life!
