I shipped the last of the LOLAstretch leotards this morning. And while I am not particularly sad–mainly because I made the decision to close the company about six months ago so that I could have the time to fully pursue costume design and art–I definitely have the quietly overwhelming feeling of a sea change on the horizon. And don’t worry, legwarmers will still be available for 8 more days if you want one last momento. They make a great gift;-) Ok but seriously, at least for now, I am looking forward to taking a break from thinking about sales!
