As we start 2015 I thought it would be a great time to look back on the past year and the evolution of Dirt & Noise. It has been a total whirlwind and feels like only yesterday that I signed my lease and got the keys to the store. I can't believe it has been an entire year since I got the space and nine months since we have opened our doors!!!
So many people to thank for their hard work, love, and support over the past year. Without them I could never have done this. After spending most of my career designing clothing in corporate America, I dreamed that one day I would be able to have my own business, an outlet to create my own vision and express my point of view. This has been hands down the hardest yet most rewarding time in my professional career.
We have a long road ahead of us at Dirt & Noise as we continue to grow and evolve as a store, brand, and lifestyle. I can't wait to see what 2015 brings us.
OMG!!! I opened a store!!!
A before picture of the store. I can't believe it's the same space.
Endless trips to Home Depot with my building crew: my handsome hubby and his sidekicks Griffin and Cooper.
The transformation begins!! Amazing what a fresh coat of white paint and refinishing the floors can do.
Rob building out shelves and countertop, flashing his usual metal pose.
We are starting to look like a store!!
Merchandise is coming in !!
Working on the windows with my little helpers!
Our first window. (That's me in the reflection!)
OMG, we did it !!!
