I am not sure how the first month of the 2016 has completely come and gone. It’s hard to believe that it’s actually February and at the end of this month we will be launching the 1st drop of our brand new SS16 collection. The VONBON team has been working tirelessly to bring our newest collection to life and hope you have been enjoying our sneak peeks over on Instagram.
Last month I took a little break from all the hustle to sit down and have a candid conversation with my friend and fellow entrepreneur, Kendall Barber. She is one half of the amazing sister duo behind Poppy Barely, a Canadian shoe company that’s making big waves in the industry. Their shoes fit better, feel better and live better. I can truly attest to this, as I own these beauties and absolutely LOVE them! No wonder they were Poppy Barley’s best selling shoe last year.
To start 2016 off with a bang, they have expanded their range to handbags, clutches and wallets, along with their gorgeous range of Men’s shoes. I have been drooling over The Perfect Handbag in Navy since they posted it on their Instagram account last week.
Our conversation was just what I needed at the time. After coming off of a very busy holiday season and feeling pretty run down, Kendall and I connected over similar struggles that we both deal with as small business owners. Dilemmas we face as women in business, trying to find balance between the work we love and the families we want and have. It was very refreshing to just be totally honest and candid with one another. So much so, that Kendall published our conversation in the latest volume of Poppy Barley Magazine. Read the full conversation here.
Here are some other behind the scenes photos of the VONBON studio and a look at some of the new styles to come this spring!
