Today is a monumental day personally and quite the epic-full-circle milestone professionally for me too. It’s wild to reminisce on these past two years and come to terms with how far we’ve come at Part & Parcel. What started as “just” a Kickstarter campaign has morphed into a full-fledged business empowering plus women coast-to-coast and putting money back in the purse of plus size women. And, it all began with THE boots…
I’ve been plus for as long as I can remember. From wearing maternity at my 8th grade graduation, a men’s Jos A. Bank suit for college interviews to starting this blog 10 (wow!) years ago, my dream has always been to give plus women options and the community they deserve. I created this boot out of real frustration – being apart of a plus community that fashion bigwigs left behind. I decided to do something about it… to rally my community and create a business where plus women could find fellowship, earn some cash, and look awesome doing it! This boot was a dream I had, and seeing it come to life and empowering other plus women in the process…wow.
The Ultimate Wide-Calf Boot is BACK and better than ever. We’ve improved our fit & fabrics and now bring you not only one, but two delicious styles in buttery leather and suede. I’ve heard too many plus women lament too many times that knee-length boots won’t fit over their calves. That’s why I’m re-introducing Part & Parcel boots in 3 different calf circumferences: “20, “22, “24 – now officially available for purchase!
Just last week at The CurvyCon, my team and I experienced the sheer joy of seeing plus women get into knee-length boots for the first time in their lives. There were gasps. There were tears. There was joy. There was relief that something was made with our bodies in mind. (Cue Beyonce “Feeling Myself”).
If history is any indication, these boots will sell out. Take a peek, shop, pair the Ultimate Wide-Calf Boot (up to size 12, all wide-width) with our Fall Styles (up to 6X) and strut your stuff in fashion that finally fits! #DimensionalSizing
Until next time,
