theshoejunkie When the day gets long
When the work's all done
When the sun sets
When you need to forget
Grab that cup,
Fill it up
Sip it slow
And let it all go.

theshoejunkie Saturday night was probably my most fulfilling night at work. Not because we did well but because of the clients who came in. I met fans I had "known" via social media, got to see customers I hadn't seen in a while then right towards the end of the night, a women and her high school aged daughter came in and were looking for school clothes.
The girl tells me she had been in private school her whole life & will begin her first year of public school with no dress code this year. She said they had been everywhere shopping & had about given up. I could tell she was overwhelmed. So, I told her to move into the larger dressing room, have a seat and I'd be right back.
In a few minutes I had pulled tons of looks for her & had re-styled items she already had hanging in her room. For the next two hours, we played dress up. No one else in the store but my employees, this sweet girl & her mama. The girl was elated. She literally loved everything. We chose more than 25 outfits when originally she didn't think she would find anything.
As I was pulling more looks, her mom whispered, "thank you. You are such a blessing to us." And her eyes filled up with tears. I told her it was "my pleasure. It's what I love to do". She then explained that her husband was usually the one who loved to shop with their daughter. It was "their thing" & because he had recently died, she was doing it now. She said she "felt like a failure" until I helped her.

I know sometimes "shopping" can sound do trivial & unimportant in the grand scheme of things but tonight, it wasn't. There was so much emotion in that family behind something we all see as simple as buying school clothes. ️ (Continued in the first comment below) #beckasconfesssesh

  •   lettingitallgo82 Awwwww your such an amazing person. Hopefully one day I will be able to meet you. I love the clothes you sell but always being overweight, I hesitate to buy something something out the regular from tshirt and jeans. So I have decided to lose this weight and my first outfit for my first goal is going to come from your store. You made that girl first day of school the best day 2w

  •   theshoejunkie @jessicadrobbins I left market early to get here so I couldn't visit! You can NOT use your phone at all!! They are kicking people out left and right! This obnoxious chick next to me wouldn't shut up and I closed my eyes and said "please make her shut up!" She was yelling at her friend and being so loud, I legit couldn't hear (and we are literally right by the stage). I swear to you, two seconds later her partner was on her phone recording Kevin and she got kicked out. Then the obnoxious chick sat there running her mouth and popped her phone out and boom, she was gone too!! #prayeranswered hahahaha 2w

theshoejunkie Well, the Kiki LaRue warehouse is officially debt free. No bills owed to anyone, at all, for anything. And I have over $3 million in standing pre-paid for inventory in just one location alone. That means, I could sell every single thing in one store, even at half and be a wealthy woman.
Instead, it's 11:59pm and I'm counting down my drawer. Because what you reap is what you will sow. So, I'll go home, after my more than 12 hour work day and kiss my son (who's probably asleep on my bed room floor), get in the shower, dry and curl my hair, slide quietly into bed, hold Ben's arm and sleep until my alarm for market goes off in the morning. And then Sunday I fly to Vegas for a week of market there to come home to fly back out that next Sunday for a week of meetings with our factories in Los Angeles. (And flying home really quick for meet the teacher night is in there somewhere! Haha)

Nothing at all about what I do is easy. I know it looks like it sometimes. Ben tells me all of the time that I "make it look easy". Ten minutes around me and you'll change your mind. I barely finish a sentence before another one starts. I likely sound crazy to most people. I can see their heads spinning when I talk to them. I think about work every second of my day. Every thing I look at is an opportunity for growth. Whether for an Instagram post or an employee or new relationship or a sale. I love my job. Every day. I hustle. Because nothing in my life has ever been handed to me. I have a message to spread and it's not going to spread itself. Kiki LaRue is so much more than a clothing store and the world needs to know it. Even at midnight. On a Thursday. And I have an entire staff of people who depend on me to get them a paycheck. And an entire community of women who are depending on me to make sure they look and feel amazing, every season!
Life does not happen while we are waiting around for someone else to make our way for us.
Get up. Get out. Do something.
And work like there is someone working 24 hours a day to take it away from you.
Be proud of YOU. I'm proud of me. And at the end of the day, that's what you gotta be. Proud of what YOU put out into this world. #notadnb

theshoejunkie Because it's been a while, here is a #beckasconfesssesh for ya! Today, Ben and I participated in our "ribbon cutting ceremony" for @shopkikilarueroanoke and @thebrewjunkie I can't even tell you how good it felt to watch our dreams come full circle. God has done so much for us. So so much. I know I work a lot. I know it's not always fun to hang out with me (I know yall say otherwise but really....) I know I leave early and show up late because of "work". I know it's always me saying, "one more second. Let me finish this post" or like I literally just told Kendal, "I'm almost done!". But I can promise you this, if you have ever walked into my store and seen my face when a customer slides on that dress she didn't think she could pull off or when that girl who "never wears stuff like this" walks out with bags full, you'll understand. Helping these women feel good about themselves is what I do this for. Nothing else feels better than saying, "just touch this shirt!" And watching someone gasp because it feels like butter. Nothing feels better than showing someone my warehouse and watching their eyes light up because they've never seen anything like this and they expected something so different! I eat sleep and breath KLR because it's what I am passionate about. And I get to do that every day with a man I absolutely freakin adore. We have grown so much together as a couple and in our love for Jesus since we started working together a year and a half ago. We have found our strides. We have rediscovered and truly relied on our faith. Ben does his thing. I do mine. I've fallen in love with him, my job and Jesus all over again. And I am so thankful to be here. For you. For him. For my family. And for the Lord. Thank you for always letting me shine my light. It means more than you know!! #beckasconfesssesh 4w

  •   starlynn48 @theshoejunkie you are amazing and am very grateful for your sweetness. You were so sweet to my daughter when we came to the warehouse sale before this last one, that you made an impression on her and she is in LOVE. We came 2 weekends ago to the store and she was sad that you weren't there. My 8 yr old looks up to you️😇 4w
  •   ahoppus I will never forget my first KLR purchase. It was a piko top in small. I was sent a medium and emailed your store that I had ordered a small and would send the medium back. You, personally, called me telling me to keep the medium and that a small would be sent to me immediately (I paid it forward with the medium). That was several years ago, but I knew then, that you would do amazing things. If you were willing to personally call me, someone you didn't even know in Indiana, I knew your store would go far. I am so happy for you. You are inspiring, Becca. Never let anyone tell you otherwise. 4w

  •   danicadfwrealtor Haven't read all the comments, but download the app free prints. I have used it the last 3 months. You get 85 pictures a month for free!! I was worried about the quality but they are amazing! The free ones are 4x6 but they offer larger print options too and at a great price! I was nervous there was a catch lol but it's 85 free and you just pay like $3.99 in shipping and that's it! I love it!! @theshoejunkie 5d
  •   sarah_folkner Don't use Groove Book! I have gotten 1/4 books, can never get my emails answered, and had to cancel my debit card cause even after requesting to cancel my membership dozens of times they still charged me (for books I never received) so my Credit Union advised me to cancel my card 1d
  •   sarah_folkner ....Plus, the 1 book I did get was not the pictures I chose & was some really bad pictures. Anyone reading DO NOT USE GROOVE BOOK! 1d

theshoejunkie A few things: cooking isn't my forte. If you know me, you know that. I don't enjoy it. But I did enjoy making a simple spaghetti dinner and actually SERVING my husband. Felt good! He was so excited, he goes, "now you want to sit down and I'll make you a plate?" Hahahaha nope! A side note I should mention: I legit asked Ben, "do we have any paper plates or do we have to use the fancy ones?" Hahahaha. #breakableisfancy #corellebreaksifyoutryhard #paperiswhereitsat #partyplates #aintnothinwrongwiththat #mompreneur #donthavetime? #makesome! 1mon
