I AM SO EXCITED!!!! I know I always am, but I’m extra excited today because my new holiday collection from POPFLEX is HEREEEEEEEEEEE! Say hello to Sugar Plum!
I’ve always wanted to do a holiday collection, but timing has always been a little crazy. I was not going to let it sneak away from me this year though!
Sugar Plum is inspired by my little girl dreams of wanting to be in the Nutcracker. Which, fun fact – I took ballet when I was younger and auditioned for the Nutcracker. I got casted as the toy solider, soooooo that kinda ended my ballet career…
This collection is also inspired by the historical fashion of the French courts. There’s something so intriguing and alluring about that time period that I had to pull from it! You’ll see elements of inspiration in the mock corsets, boning, and square necklines. The thing with all of these historical designs is that they were made with major restriction – I mean, can you imagine what it must have felt like to wear a corset every single day?! I can barely handle it when my jeans are tight! Anyway, I wanted to turn this whole concept on its head by using these historical features and allowing freedom of movement, instead of restricting it.
With Sugar Plum, you can gracefully move, flow, and sweat while still being accompanied by all these fashionable elements. All of the leggings and bras are made with my new fabric, ButterSilk. It is a cozy, buttery, and moves-with-you kind of fabric!
ARE YOU READY TO SEE THISSSS?!?!!
Here are our amazing models from shoot day, Samara (L), Arlene (R), and Anna (in pics below)!!! They were seriously the sweetest and down-to-earth girls ever! We always cast our models from our actual POPFLEX community, so if you ever want to model for us and you live in Southern California, you can fill out this form here!
First off, the Corset Bra in Crimson! AHHH I mean, look at those details! The front of this bra has a tasteful square neckline, making this bra feel femme yet strong. (Also, this bra makes my boobs look really good – JUST SAYING CUZ V IMPORTANT!)
The Flow Motion Bra. I MEAN. LOOK AT THAT CUT OUT! It’s there for both breathability and cuteness. Plus, the back of the bra has major functionality with a built-in pocket that could actually fit a phone!
Say helllooooo to the Flutter Top! This can be worn with jeans, in-between gym and hang outs, or whatever you want! It has the sweetest flutter sleeves and an open back that is soooooo dreamy. Plus the long ribbon ties are so majestical.
THESE HOURGLASS LEGGINGS – YOU NEED THEM! They are my most favorite go-to legging I have ever designed, ever. The waistband has this gorgeous crossover and there’s no elastic that pinches the waist. They stay in place and they’re super versatile. If you ever needed a staple legging, this one is the one. It comes in Rose and Black.
Okay, this is The Perfect Bra. Because DUHHHHHH IT IS PERFECTIONNNNNN. It has adjustable straps, a longer crop, a flattering U-shaped neckline, jaw-dropping back cutout, and SO MUCH MORE. This also comes in Rose and Black to match the Hourglass Legging! It’s just perfect (also makes my boobs look great) and I just know you are gonna love it so much! UGH. LEGIT MY FAVE.
The Reveal Top reminds me of a 40s open back dress! Combined with the flutter sleeves, soft jersey material, and front tie, it’s just such an elegant look!
And last but not least, the Timeless Pocket Tights. I love pockets. My favorite thing is wearing something and saying, “LOOK THIS HAS POCKETS!”. If you know what I mean, then you’ll love these tights too!!!
Okay, so at the end of the shoot, we were squeezing in some final pics – which btw, my sister Jackelyn was the photog and I still cannot believe she is our photog now!!!! Samara and I were sitting and we could see our pictures pop up on the laptop in real time. It was so funny because we started saying “Awww, we look cute!” and then giggling. Then Jackelyn would keep shooting us and then more pics of us laughing at ourselves and thinking we were cute would pop up. So, we ended up with like 27 pics of us laughing at ourselves… it was such a joyful moment!!! You can definitely see our excitement progress!!!
AHHH that’s it! Let me know which piece you’re going to get from the new collection! I cannot wait to hear which one your fave is!!!!!
