Tired of Facebook

So, I finally got tired of posting photos to Facebook and will start experimenting with posting them to this blog. I am hoping it will be easier to organize and easier to see all the photos that feature one kikaPaprika item. So clicking on the "Rita" label should show you all the photos that feature someone wearing "Rita". Let me know what you think as feedback is appreciated and encouraged. I don't know if you read or like my blog posts unless you comment! :)

Comparing Jenna

(This photo was originally shared on Nov 20, 2012)
Thank you to one of my kika sisters for finding this skirt that looks very similar to a kikaPaprika one. I love that ours is cheaper, made in the USA, made with organic cotton and comes in 12 colors. Plus, I saw the comments when NYDJ posted it on Facebook and people wanted it in other colors PLUS in a petite size too. Well, guess what? Our "Simone" skirt is a few inches shorter and works PERFECT for us petite gals. :)

Daphne has the best clients/models! This is Ruby and she is wearing Joey in Bordeaux which is one of my favorite jackets! I seriously did not understand the appeal of this jacket until I tried it on for myself. She is wearing the Lil reversible tank (v-neck in front) plus our super comfy Leggings in Black. Look how hot this outfit is with those boots! More photos and other looks on Daphne's blog:

kikaPaprika Sample Rack

I thought it would be fun to document the progress I have made with my sample rack. I wish I thought of this before as I would have made more of an effort to document this more carefully. Still, it is amazing how many items of clothes I have acquired in just a few months. Most have been by hosting my own kika shows!

These were the sample clothes that came in my starter kit. This is also the rack that came in my starter kit too which now stays in my car so I can use it at kika shows.

Here is a better photo of my sample rack with the good camera. I went shopping for hangers and an organizer thing for my pants. The colors are much better right? :)

The grand opening of my kikaPaprika Boutique! I had a double clothing rack that I purchased to use with my previous company. It works great to have at home since it is a bit more heavy duty than I anticipated. I also added a clothing organizer to store all my pants.

I have added a banner to the kikaPaprika Boutique! Oh and a bunch more samples too!

Photo taken Oct 13, 2012 (mobile phone photo) — at Kenmore Community Club
I didn't get a good straight on shot of the sample rack but this was taken at a fundraiser event for Food Lifeline.

Photo taken Oct 26, 2012 (mobile phone photo) — at Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties.
My event display with a few things missing from the rack. No pants or skirts here! I should count to see how many items I have now...

Photo taken Nov 9, 2012 (Good camera photo)
This is the most recent photo of my sample rack. I still want more!
