Valentine's Day Outfit Two Ways + A Guest Interview

Before I get to my guest interview today, I wanted to share a collaboration I worked on with Lindsay over at Pursuit of Pink. I absolutely adore this girl (amazing blog to sponsor too, P.S.) and we teamed up to style a Valentine's Date Night inspired outfit. Plus I'm giving away ESPN sized ad space! I don't want to give it all away in my post, so go check out how each of us styled our Valentine's Day looks and win some free Ad Space!! 

Oh, and yes, I will be spending Valentine's Day with 20 men! Well, 20 male co-workers, 14 of which speak very little English because they are from Japan. So there's that. Totally jealous right now right?

Like I mentioned before, I have a guest interview today! Gipsy Dharma is a clothing company that specializes in quality handmade clothing and leather footwear. The idea behind the leather boots is not only to beautify your wardrobe, but to inspire the free spirit and gypsy inside us all! With their most recent collection of handmade, unique clothing and footwear, the goal was to share their passion for simplicity and comfort of walking barefoot. The boots are designed to make them feel like your second skin, the way all your footwear is supposed to feel.   

Sarah: What is your most popular selling boot?
Gipsy Dharma: Tan, black, brown are my best sellers during autumn & winter. Green, purple, plum and orange during the music festival season in the summer :)

Sarah: What is your all time favorite item you have ever stocked?
Gipsy Dharma: I personally have 30 pairs of Gipsy Dharma that I wear on different occasions. All depends on my mood & where I'm wearing them. And yes, I only wear Gipsy Dharma :)

Sarah: What is the price range your boutique?
Gipsy Dharma: $210-$375

Sarah: For aspiring boutique owners, would you give some advice on how you go to this point? 
Gipsy Dharma: Forget about fashion trends and be unique! Continuously experiment with your designs and be childlike in your exploration. Remain infinitely devoted to your cause & become immune to all counterproductive criticism. Above all, ensure that you're having fun while running you little venture! :)

I encourage everyone in blog land to always support small businesses when possible. It isn't easy to run and operate a small business, especially one that produces the high quality handmade apparel and boots from Gipsy Dharma. Although they are a company out of England and Wales, they do, in fact, ship worldwide! Gipsy Dharma does weekly giveaways as well! So be sure to visit their website and their Facebook Page!
