My Dearest JMLBeauties,
It is with a heavy heart that I officially announce the closing of Jess My Life Boutique. It will forever be one of the greatest honors to have served you these past three years and it saddens me to inform you that this chapter has come to an end. There is no singular reason for this decision, but actually a variety of positive and negative circumstances that have led to here. All I will say is that it mainly stems from a change in heart and future career opportunities. It is a bittersweet but celebratory time, and I appreciate you coming alongside me as I close this special chapter. *
I'd like to express my deepest gratitude to the following:
To my family, who were my immediate and constant supporters. You never questioned my heart for JLMB, and always cheered me on through the highs and lows of navigating the realm of retail.
Thank you for wearing and sharing JMLB with the most pride. Your enthusiasm helped me thrive. *
To Anna, my roommate and bestie who willingly sacrificed countless hours to JMLB - from staying up late with me before collection launches, to helping with pop-up shops including many trips up & down the stairs loading U-Hauls), to proof-reading all of my social posts. You were my constant reassurance through the chaotic journey of owning a business, and I can never thank you enough. *
To my stunning and talented friends who were my models & photographer throughout the years.
Allie, Angel, Emily, Hannah, Gigi, Julie, Maddie, Marisa, Megan, Natalia, Nina, and Joey - I couldn't have done this without each of you. Your support, on and off camera, means the world to me.
Thank you for bringing life, diversity, and vision to the many collections of JMLB. *
And to every single person who was part of making the JMLB dream a reality - I owe it all to you. I gave my blood, sweat, & tears with the purpose of making size-inclusive fashion accessible...and you showed up. Your encouragement and trust were paramount to JMLB'S success. I will forever cherish the memories made with you and with Jess My Life Boutique. I love you all. Thank you. *
Owner, Jess My Life Boutique
