Spring 2015: Goddess Preview

Hello Everyone,

Despite barely being into fall, it’s already time to start thinking about the gorgeous new lingerie releasing through winter and spring, and I want to begin my fashion preview series with Goddess—the pariah of the Eveden brands.  Goddess isn’t as bright and quirky as Freya, as ornate and sophisticated as Fantasie, or as crowd-pleasing as Elomi, and as a result, it is often totally omitted from discussion on the blogosphere or worse yet, blasted as being too old or matronly.  However, Goddess features more affordable price points than any other Eveden brand, and the cup size range encompasses both fuller-busted and smaller-busted plus-size women, a boast even Elomi cannot make.  For a lot of women, Goddess is one of the few brands on the market that cater to their size and/or their budget, and with each new season, Goddess continues improving to meet those demands and exceed expectations.

A Happy Birthday to Co-Owner Jason!

Hello Everyone,

In the past, my business partner/dad has written articles here talking about his experiences co-owning a lingerie store as well as being the father of a busty teenager, but today my family and I want to wish him a very happy birthday!  He has been a pivotal person both in our lives and in our business, and he never fails to help out where and when he can—whether by moving heavy furniture, running errands, delivering packages to the post office, or fighting with vendors.

Whenever I am at my lowest, my most vulnerable, he is there to encourage me with his kindness and empathy.  Losing our mom several years ago left my brother and me with deep emotional wounds, but we have been blessed to have our dad who always manages to find the way to help us through whatever personal crisis we experience.  All of the people who have been helped by our store also owe him a debt of gratitude because without him, A Sophisticated Pair would never have existed.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all that you do, and happy birthday!

Erica, Debbie, and LJ (aka my brother)
