. . . WE CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOUR HELP!

Thanks for checking out my KICKSTARTER project y'all . . . I'm so excited about my Ultimate Layering Piece, "The Shemie...an Americanized version of the French word "chemise,"or slip dress"!!!!! 

Listen up ladies, I came up with this idea during my many years as a stylist, dressing thousands of women. I realized my biggest issue in dressing modern day women was the absence of a staple from the past. What staple you ask? The slip!  Remember . . . that little gem our mothers and grandmothers wore with fierce devotion?  Where has it gone?  When did we give the slip the slip?!  

I decided to experiment with that little security blanket from yesteryear and came up with the one and only SHEMIE slip for the modern day woman. But there's just one problem!  I need your help to get the Shemie out of production and into your hands!! 

For now, we offer three life enhancing styles: (1) The cami, which we call "the hoppy top" after the playful comfort and ease it brings, (2) The elegant scoop, which we call "meet the parents," providing support without bust line exposure and (3) The romper, our "paparazzi protector," the answer to those sexy dresses we love to wear but fear the worst; and Ladies, you don't need to be a fashionista to style your outfits, and you don't need uncomfortable fat dis-locators to compliment that beautiful body of yours, all you need is The Shemie.

How can you wear your Shemie?

  • Under sheer clothing
  • Beneath your dresses
  • For yoga/pilates 
  • Under mini dresses/skirts
  • Under a cardigan with a belt 
  • As a layering piece with jeans 
  • To lounge around in
  • Under wrap dresses
  • To sleep in
  • OR... on it's own!

The Shemie meets every woman's styling needs, bringing runway fashion to real life! Unlike those lacy or unfinished underpinnings that use to exist, the Shemie is a beautifully finished opaque garment that is versatile enough to be worn as a layering piece, or by itself! The Shemie is so user friendly that you can wear THEM to the gym in the morning, to the office all day, to the red carpet premiere that evening and to bed at night. I wear my Shemies 24/7; they've changed my life and are extremely addictive!!! 

My job is to help women look and feel beautiful, just the way they are. The Shemie is manufactured to compliment women's bodies of all shapes and sizes. It's NOT a fat dislocator or a shaper. It's NOT a girdle. It's a LAYERING PIECE. Enough of this squeezing into stretch fabrics and uncomfortable patterns, the Shemie is designed to compliment your body and the wardrobe you love.

Listen up ladies . . . YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, and the Shemie is here to help you look and feel that way.  Once you've tried it, you will not only love it - you will want more!  Then you will wonder...how did I live without this essential staple?!

What is the money going to be used for?

I've already put my own money into this business to create a sample run for the Shemie line.  However, if I want to actually put them into production, I would need extra funds. That's where you come in!  With the help of Kickstarter, I hope to raise enough money to produce the first season of Shemies, as well as pay for the shipping costs of sending out the rewards.  Additional funds will be used to get Shemie into stores by going to trade shows in the Spring.

THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR BACKERS AND POTENTIAL BACKERS FOR YOUR ENTHUSIASM AND SUPPORT! 

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Manufacturing is set up and ready to go in Asheboro, NC. We will use the funds to pay for the fabric, manufacturing and shipping of the Shemies. It's our goal to ship as soon as possible and before the date indicated on our Kickstarter. A potential challenge will be coordinating the customer specific ordering information, which we will not be able to obtain until after the December 1st finish line; thereafter, we will manufacture and ship. We anticipate a smooth process but if orders are more than expected, it may delay our ability to ship as quickly as we would like. We are confident that all orders will be produced and delivered on time to the people that fund the project. Thank You Shemie Lovers!!! xoxo, Shelton
