Hi, I'm Tommie
Writing about anything else is easy but, for some reason, whenever I sit down to write about myself, I end up telling lame stories about what my dog ate last week or about the afternoon my dad taught me to drive a stick shift in my "Nan-daddy's" beat up Ranger pick-up, that happened to be missing a seat so I sat on bags of mineral or about how I went to Petco last week and spent $21 on a toy that my dog will absolutely destroy in 2 seconds because it was an adorable hippo. The stories sound awesome in my head when I write them but, afterwards, when I proofread everything I wrote down, I think "I didn't say anything about myself at all!?" and then just keep everything as-is because I don't know what else to say.
But! Then I realized!
I tell stories about myself because I love that everyone has stories. I tell stories all the time. Most of the time they are totally irrelevant and often told in the least appropriate times, but all of these stories mean something to me, and since they mean something to me, they've become part of who I am.
So, for those who don't know, I'm Tommie. Originally Tommie Lynne, but shortened to Tommie from my hubby Skyler when we met 6 years ago. I'd like to say I'm a bit of a fashionista, but in all reality I choose my wardrobe based on style + functionality!
Lace & Magnolias began from a dream and vision for a stylish, age appropriate ranged line that can go from office to night out on the town in a matter of minutes! Why buy clothing that is completely single-use? Shirts that are totally instagram worthy, but once they are online you can never wear again? That is so not my style. I'd rather find a line that you can wear multiple ways for multiple occasions. Truly get your $$ worth and look amazing while doing so!
We want to give you that vision. We want to give you your money's worth of seriously cute clothing & accessories! So I hope each of you find something that makes you feel beautiful and confident to go into your killer, boss babe wardrobe!
