Carlet Edmonds will be available in Napa, Ca. August 01 2014

Dear Carlet Edmonds Scarf lovers,

Designer Marjie and a few members of the CE team headed their way to the beautiful city of Napa Valley.

Napa, Ca. is known for their beautiful scenery of vast vineyards and abundant wineries.

The weather is also perfect year around making this gorgeous city the perfect place for Carlet Edmonds Scarves.

Marjie has had her heart set on the city of Napa ever since she met Barbara at the Napa Valley Welcome Center.

With hope and determination she told Barbara that she would be back one day and they would carry the Carlet Edmonds brand.

Fast forward to present day and here Designer Marjie is making her dream come true while meeting with Barbara once again! Carlet Edmonds will be available at the Napa Valley Visitor Center Fall '14!

This goes to show that if you set your heart to something you can do it! I always say that if you can dream it, you can do it! 

 

Marjie also believes in mixing work with fun. As you can see from the pictures below the Carlet Edmonds team loves to live life to the fullest with every open door that is presented to us!

 

 

With love from your Carlet Edmonds Styling Director,

Teryn Yancey


A Carlet Edmonds meeting & Office Redo July 14 2014

   
A few days ago the Carlet Edmonds team had a meeting to discuss all the upcoming events and details of our fashion lives. After the meeting Designer Marjie and I headed out to Homegoods, Marshalls and Ross to find some orange and silver accessories for her new office space. We had such a great time scouring all of my fave stores. If you didn't know already, I am slightly obsessed with clearance sections at any store! Especially Target, but I won't even go there right now because I can dedicate this whole post to my love of Target. Moving on... Designer Marjie loves Clean modern lines and bright pops of color. We were on a mission to get 99% of the space completed that day. Can you imagine a life of shopping and decorating? Sounds good to me!
Meet Peanut Sparkles! We came across him on our journey to HomeGoods. Isn't he gorgeous? I would like to know who in the world Peanut Sparkle is going to go home with. I mean how would you even transport him, let alone how big is your house to hold all of his shimmery goodness?
In the end, we had a fun time while working hard!
With love from your Carlet Edmonds Styling Director,

Letter to Courtney July 09 2014 2 Comments

Dear Courtney,

As the newest part of our TEAM, we hope you enjoyed your first day at Carlet Edmonds.  We realized that you are probably feeling at least some symptoms of nervousness and anxiety. Rest assured that your concerns are most likely nothing to worry about. The common stereotype is that interns spend all of their time in file rooms, which you will not do (because we do not have a file room...ha ha ha) or fetching donuts and coffee for the rest of the staff (again, you will not do this unless you are willing). 

Kidding aside, we would like to welcome you as one of us. This is an exciting opportunity for you to gain professional experience, learn crucial “tricks of the fashion biz” and begin your inevitable rise to the top in the world of fashion. 

Congratulations and enjoy the ride!

Sincerely,

Your CE Family

 

 


Wishing you and your family a happy and safe 4th of July! July 04 2014

On this day of our country's independence, I want to extend my deepest wishes for a happy and safe 4th of July!  May you and your family have the occasion to celebrate the many freedoms our great country has to offer!  May God bless you and the United States of America!  USA gave me the freedom to live my dreams!  I am very grateful for this country.
 
 
Enjoy your day, 
Marjorie Carlet-Edmonds

Know Yourself. Face Your Fear. Follow Your Heart. June 08 2014 2 Comments

Dear Carlet Edmonds Lovers, 

Never stop learning from somebody; 99% that somebody has something he learned from life or from sombody in life.

Here's what I learned from Steve Tobak today (below is part of his article): 

Observe people. You see a crazy number of laundry lists of attributes and behaviors that successful people are supposed to have, but if I had to pick one – just one thing that made all the difference – it’s observing people. Everything in business is about people. If you get people, you’ll probably kill it out there. 

Take the first step in the right direction. No, I’m not trying to be absurd. Of course you can’t know in advance what the right direction is. But if an opportunity arises and you don’t take that first step, if you don’t go for it, if you don’t say, “OK, let’s rock,” I can absolutely guarantee you’ll never find the right direction. Learn to say yes ... a lot. If it scares you, all the more reason.

Build relationships. If you’re a people person, then friendships and relationships come naturally to you. If not, it wouldn’t hurt for you to get to work on that a bit. No, I’m not saying you can’t be successful if you’re introverted. Of course you can. All I know is, life is like a tree that branches like crazy, and each branch usually involves a person.

PS: My joy is to see you find your joy!  God Bless...

A sneak peek into a trip to the Manufacturers March 17 2014

Dear Carlet Edmonds scarf lovers,
Time for a behind the scenes look into the latest trip to the manufacturer.
I had the honor of visiting the factory for the very first time and loved every minute of my trip.
Here are some moments we got to enjoy!
We made a quick stop to Chipotle for some dinner while on the road. We almost got pulled over but thankfully we didn't! The cop was staring at us in Chipotle.
Here we are in the hotel around midnight getting ready for bed. Designer Marjie and I forgot our pajamas and we made a late night run to walgreens. Our choices were maxi dresses, some ugly leggings and big tshirts. We chose the maxi dresses! We stayed up late talking and finally decided it was time to sleep.
We got up very early in the morning, enjoyed breakfast and started our day! We ventured off into Marjie's fabric supplier and checked out all the new fabric for Fall 2014.
We shopped a little and ran our errands while having fun. Then, it was finally time to go to the manufacturer to pick up the limited edition Spring/Summer 2014 black and white collection. The ladies working there were so sweet. It was so amazing to see how our clothes and accessories are made for even the biggest retail chains! Designer Marjie shares her manufacturer with Connie K! She is a high end clothing designer in Dillard's!!
We also, went shopping for flowers. All the flowers were beautiful. It was definitely flower heaven and one of my favorite parts of the trip. I love to garden so seeing all of the plants beautifully grown was amazing. Every flower you could think of was there from all over the world!
After our errands were done, Designer Marjie took Janice and I to an authentic Korean BBQ. Let me tell you, this was my first time eating anything like this. I was scared at not liking it at first but I ended up loving it. You grill your own meat and veggies right at your own booth. It was fun!
You know you are in a Korean restaurant when you see this at your table. There was even a mouth wash dispenser in the bathrooms.
My trip to the manufacturer is a trip I will always remember.
With love from your Carlet Edmonds Styling Director,

Believe in yourself March 07 2014

Be inspired.

Look around.

Take it all in.

You are somebody.

You are going places.

Whether you know it or not, you are impacting people.

What you say, what you do can affect someone's day.

Actions speak louder than words.

A smile.

A simple gesture.

A kind hello.

Each person was created so differently yet we perfectly interact with one another on a daily basis.

It's our differences that fill the gap between us.

We yearn for things that the other has.

Random conversations can turn into something meaningful.

You see, we were created for greatness as Designer Marjie says.

And you know what?

She's right!

There is a plan for your life and some of us have yet to find it.

We go throughout our days in monotony.

Like a hamster on a wheel.

We are all continually searching for something greater.

The next promotion, the next life event.

Always anticipating whats yet to come..

We need to remember that we are capable of attaining our dreams.

Whatever it may be, if you set your mind to it, you can do it!

Marjie is so great at keeping us motivated and her fashion story is one to be remembered.

She took only $200 of overtime money and went full speed towards her dreams.

Now this company is thriving all because she had a dream.

She listened to that still small voice within her that said she is good enough.

Without hesitance and a lot of research Carlet Edmonds was formed.

Through her dreams, the amazing designer scarves that you see and wear were created.

Everytime you put on a Carlet Edmonds scarf let it be a reminder to go after your dreams.

It's never too late.

If she can do it so can you!

It only takes drive and determination.

Believe in yourself and you can reach the stars.

 

With love from your Carlet Edmonds Styling Director,

Teryn Yancey

 

 

 


Beauty comes from within March 02 2014

Dear Carlet Edmonds scarf lovers,

We are a company that believes in true beauty.

That each person is beautiful and should embrace their uniqueness.

That is why we do not Photoshop our models and  never will.

We want our photos and models to always portray our beliefs, and that is Real People, True Fashion.

Why should we Photoshop and get rid of everything that makes each individual model beautiful in their own way?

We believe it is never necessary to make a model into something their not.

They don't need to be more thin, nose slimmer, eyes bigger, eyebrows higher.

When companies Photoshop to unrecognizable proportions it sends a message to the younger generation that the way they look is not good enough.

They compare themselves to those magazine images when those models do not even exists.

It has distorted the definition of beauty.

Beauty comes from within.

It is letting who you really are shine through in your outward appearance and smile.

Our models are perfect just they way they were created, and so are you!

So rock what ya got and be proud of every detail about yourself.

No other person was created like you.

 With love from your Carlet Edmonds Styling Director,

Teryn Yancey

Behind the scenes of Spring/Summer 2014 February 26 2014 1 Comment

Dear Carlet Edmonds Scarf Lovers,

 

WOW! What a crazy busy week it has been for the Carlet Edmonds team.

 

This past Friday Designer Marjie traveled to Los Angeles to check on production, work on new designs and get the Spring/Summer 2014 collection!

Check out a little but about her trip!

 

 

After she arrived back home this past Sunday, we jumped right into the Spring/Summer 2014 look book photo shoot!

What an exhausting and successful day!

All the models arrived, we started hair and make up and I double checked all wardrobe looks for each look and paired all the Carlet Edmonds scarves with the chosen outfits.

All day it was fast paced and high energy accompanied by great music, great company and food.

The Carlet Edmonds team worked so well together and the whole day was a success!

I couldn't be more blessed and happy with the way everything turned out and ran smoothly.

Here I am behind the scenes working out more options for the models.

I  wanted to create timeless fashionable looks that anyone could wear and gather fashion inspiration from.

I stayed with mostly neutrals and some color. I wanted the scarves to stand out.

Jeans, pencil skirts, peplum tops, high waisted shorts and of course I had to use the sequin  blazer.

You don't have to have a million dollar closet to rock the Carlet Edmonds scarf. Just work with what you have to create a rockin' outfit and accessorize with your amazing Carlet Edmonds scarf.

Here is a behind the scenes look on set.

It was an amazing day and I can't wait to share even more behind the scene photos with you.

We will be debuting the Spring/Summer 2014 collection VERY soon.

 

With love from your Carlet Edmonds Styling Director,

Teryn Yancey
