This is the cute little logo for the Vine app. The “V” and little squiggle represent what Vine is all about – looping video. Actually Vine is a little more – it’s fun “stop action” looping video . After a little research, I downloaded it for my iPhone then decided to test it out on one of my Cici Bianca Jackets to see how it worked.
This jacket is named Asian Spice and was the first one I shot. You only have 6 seconds of video but of course arranging is what takes all the time.
I was rather taken with my first attempt and decided I would do a small series of “Dancing Jackets” so here is Teal Nubs.
Cherry Wood was my third jacket and by this time I realized I needed a plan so that when I arranged each jacket they would all have different “moves”.
When I reviewed the “Vine” I had created with this jacket, Persian Green, I realized my lighting was really, really bad and it looked so very dark. In fact all of them were looking dark. Ultimately I decided not to worry about it – this is only for fun.
All and all this only took a little over an hour to film, Certainly I learned something new but will I mess around with it again? I kind of doubt it. My final jacket is Walnut and it takes a little bow at the end.

Linda saw my baby line on Pinterest then contacted me through the web site asking if I would be interested in having my product included in an online store they were in the process of developing. With two retail boutiques located in Greenville’s historic West End and the Shops at Greenridge, an online store showcasing the firm’s aesthetic was a natural progression. Obviously, I jumped at the chance to participate and now the new site,Postcard from Paris Online Boutique, is up and running.

For years the two most often asked questions I receive from customers are “What can I wear under my jacket?” and “How should I wear it?” The first question is easily answered by directing both customers and retailers to A’ Nue Ligne. This is a great manufacturer out of Florida that makes excellent lightweight tops. They feature tanks, shells and turtlenecks that come in a myriad of great colors and work wonderfully with a Cici Bianca Jacket.
The next question has always been a little harder for me to answer. Typically when someone buys one of my $900.00 jackets they assume they should save it and wear it only for special occasions. I say – “Heck no – wear it all the time!” But, in order for me to really convince customers of this I knew I needed to post a video on my website showing how a jacket could be worn.
When my wonderful friend Hattie Bryant of Small Business School informed me she was coming to Phoenix to produce a video for The Theology of Work I realized I had a golden opportunity, so I asked her to be the talent for my little video.
Here the blond headed Hattie and I are doing a little strategic planning over cocktails at The Arizona Biltmore in preparation for the video.
And here is the finished product – jiggly camera and all. Nevertheless, this is how to wear a Cici Bianca Jacket.
How will you wear yours?
