  •   popbasic Thank you @amandamuse I've actually been rewarding your pregnancy updates for tips 3w
  •   popbasic It's amazing :) White bread with butter and sprinkles on top. @justinecnavarro 3w
  •   t_and_me I just had the same craving tonight, but realized I hate butter. 😕 it's the little things that always make me miss home 3w
  •   hancooper Congratulations!!! My daughter and I both loooovvvveeee our fairy bread 3w

popbasic Can't wait to release these Lilac is coming next week! Latte will be available next month. Mx 4w
  •   emskig Used my cobalt one for the first time at the weekend! 4w
  •   jann1n Could someone explain me where to use a clutch? Like can you put your keys, phone, make up etc in without ruining the look of it? Or do you just have to carry it empty 4w
  •   portland.grant Yes to cobalt, lilac and latte, please! 4w
  •   popbasic @jann1n I use one to hold all of my makeup, and another for going out. They're very roomy and the leather is thick so you won't see the outline of your things inside. They're all fully lined. Mx 4w
  •   jerimoore20 So excited about this @popbasic! Will we need to email you to order the lilac and/or latte? Also, do you still have the cobalt dream maxi skirt available for purchase? 4w
  •   popbasic We have the lilac in our warehouse now, if you'd like to snap one up feel free to email me we still have the skirt too! Mx @jerimoore20 4w

popbasic I'm currently working my way through this book. I always like to have a few 'business' books on my bedside table, especially with all the changes we'll be making over this year. What are you reading at the moment? Mx 2mon

popbasic Hello! I just want to give you a heads up that our Lola collection will be our last micro collection for a while.

Why is this happening? Without going into too much detail, we have lost a great sum of money in a dealing with our manufacturer, and we won’t be able to recover this as quickly (or perhaps ever) as we need to, in order to keep Popbasic running in the same form. It makes me incredibly sad that some very small decisions of mine, that at the time seemed completely arbitrary have been able to hurt Popbasic so severely. Although this isn’t goodbye, and I’m going to do everything in my power to keep Popbasic going, I’m sorry to say that the ‘micro collection’ model is not viable for us at the moment. Although this is how we started, I believe that Popbasic can remain, just in another shape.

I thank you very very much for being there everyday to support Popbasic and myself. I really appreciate every single one of you. When I moved to the US to start Popbasic, many of you became my friends and I believe this is why we have such an amazing community.
After our Lola collection is released on Wednesday, we will be awaiting our Kickstarter silk blouses and cobalt clutch shipments. Those will be packed and shipped onto you. Going forward we will release one-off pieces via Facebook and our newsletter for you to snap up (Lilac and/or Latte Clutches and the pieces above), until we figure out the best path for Popbasic. Whether that be micro collections or luxe leather pieces. What do you think?

I will keep you updated on everything that is happening, and if you have any questions please do let me know. I'll always be here, and will post regular updates. Mx

  •   popbasic That code will still be valid :) we're not closing down, but we won't have micro collections for a while @brrrat 4mon
  •   georgialeya That's so sad. I will keep following, I love your stuff. Hopefully you can thrive in another way. 4mon
  •   brrrat @popbasic thanks lovely 4mon
  •   nisie6 I'm so sorry, but you will rebound and be even better. Looking forward to how your company evolves. 4mon
  •   rachm77 Can I ask about the sunglasses which I was expecting would be in the Lola collection? Will they be available as a one off piece? I'm also a little sad the dress is black, as I seldom wear black! 4mon
  •   popbasic Hi @rachm77 the sunglasses were removed due to a technical issue with US customs. We won't be releasing these in the future. Mx 4mon
  •   saldsouza I'm sorry to hear this, Maddie. But keep your chin up! I'm looking forward to the individual pieces! Can't wait to see what you'll offer next! 4mon
  •   k_schweiz Keep your chin up. We are all loyal fans of your work and will follow @popbasic in whatever form it takes! 3mon

popbasic I'm FINALLY bringing back our Latte Leather Clutch next month! Mx 4mon
  •   annaleighcro if we already have it, the latte clutch, can we sub it out? 4mon
  •   popbasic It won't be part of the collection :) @annaleighcro 4mon
  •   annaleighcro Whew! 4mon
  •   breemccracken Will the latte clutch be available may or June ? 4mon
  •   emmyon Repeat when is lilac coming? 4mon
  •   popbasic Hey @emmyon it will be out in June 4mon
  •   ryosa_echizen @popbasic I know you guys are going through a rough patch and won't be releasing a June collection. But would you consider releasing this top in the near future as a Pop-piece in the near future? I've waiting for this since I first saw you asking about what we would think about a le Breton in this color!!! 4mon

popbasic Somehow in the last few months, we've gone from a team of two (Coen and I) to a team of five. Although I don't think of myself as a 'boss', I think the Popbasic team is absolutely awesome. I can't wait to see what we do in 2015. We're heading out for our first official team dinner/drinks this afternoon. I'm guessing there will be a lot of tacos and tequila involved p.s. Thank you @charmandgumption for the awesome addition to my mug collection 4mon
