When I was first approached by Michelle, the owner of Apricot Collection, I didn’t know what to expect. Before responding to her review inquiry I took a look at the Apricot Collection website and was enamored by the beautiful clothing they offered and disappointed because they didn’t carry plus size clothes; little did I know the amazing opportunity Michelle would present to me.
I emailed Michelle and told her that I would love to work with her, but it didn’t look as if they carried a plus size line, but that I could still run a giveaway for her. To my surprise this spurred a long and wonderful conversation in regards to plus size clothing! Michelle was looking to expand her line into plus size and was asking me for my thoughts! Thanks to our conversation I’m so excited to announce that Apricot Collection will soon be featuring beautiful clothes for women of every size! (More on all of this when I get to do a review on her new line…I can’t wait! )
While Michelle is getting together a gorgeous plus size line for us plus size women, she has agreed to be insignificant at best’s Winter Blues Giveaway Sponsor! She’s giving away a $100 gift card, which is super generous! I’ve gotten to know Michelle and her passion for beautiful/quality clothing over the past few weeks and I thought all of you should get to know her too. Here is a little bit about Michelle and her online clothing store, in her very own words:
My name is Michelle Herscu from Vaughan, ON, Canada; A wife and a mother of two adorable young kids.
As an Economist, I’ve always pursued a career in the financial industry, but deep in my heart I’ve always had a passion for fashion and I knew I want to have my own business.
So, after a long preparation process, I’ve decided that now is the right time in my life to make my dream come true.
On November 2012 Apricot Collection was launched! Apricot carries mid-range designer women’s clothes & lines from Canada & Europe. Apricot also offers Stella & Dot jewelry and other fun accessories such as scarves, belts and handbags (coming this Spring).
Apricot focuses on online sales through our website www.apricot-collection.com.
Apricot’s goal is to actually help all women out there with their precious time. We all know that being a woman is the toughest job on the planet, and we always want to look beautiful. That’s why Apricot offers different styles of clothes – casual & formal, whether we’re going to a cocktail party or grocery shopping.
Our shipping to the States is done through Can-Par so you can get your items within 3-4 business days.
She really is such a sweetie and it’s so obvious that she cares about her customers and bringing them amazing clothes in a convenient way! So be sure to check out Apricot Collection and the Winter Blues Giveaway! Also, don’t forget to stay tuned for my review of their new plus size line, which will be coming in the next month or so!
