Today marks 9 years. It’s the longest job I’ve ever had. Pretty crazy to think. It really feels like we just started which leads me to firmly believe that when you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. I think it’s easy to say for me, it’s true. Now, that doesn’t mean we haven’t had our fair share of trials and tribulations! 😂 It’s worth it though.
When I started ZZS I just wanted to make some extra money for our family. I was the mama to 3 littles and just wanted to help supplement Joel’s firefighter salary. Wild to say, now 9 years later Joel retired and we are growing an empire (at least to us!)
I will say that our mission has changed a little bit over the years as I “found” myself as a person, woman, mom, entrepreneur … you know all those things you do as you get closer to age of 40. We’ve always been about “affordable clothing for women” and that’s still true today. We work all day, every day to make sure we are bringing in stylish affordable clothes. But, as the years have progressed, I’ve really realized that I want to empower women to love themselves, really feel powerful yet cute when wearing our stuff. It doesn’t matter your age, your size, the color of your skin … seems like this day and age everyone gets so wrapped up in what everyone else is doing. My motto … quit worrying about everyone else babe, just do you!
So, as we start our 10th year of business, I’m here for the women supporting women. ♥️ Because at the end of the day, we are just a bunch of real women doing real life.
Thank you, thank you for following us on our journey and supporting not only our employees and their families but also allowing us to be supporters of our causes for down syndrome awareness and first responder’s mental health. You have no idea how important you are. 🙌🏻
See you on the flip side of 9 years!
Congratulations! I love love love ZZS – I can’t say enough good things about your wonderful company! I think I need a bigger closet….!!!
My best friend got me hooked on your website. I love how you cater to all shapes and sizes. I love how Vanessa models the clothes so you can see how they hang flow and fit. Congrats on your success! It shows just how your hard work has paid off. Keep doing what you all are doing.
Congratulations and happy anniversary! I love your mission and your message! I’m a professional woman in a creative career. Your clothing is perfect for my fat to day life. I always feel perfectly dressed in ZZS outfits, and live that I don’t have to break the bank to look fabulous! Keep doing what you do, and I’ll keep supporting you!
I’m so glad I’ve been part of your journey for the last 3 years. No matter what I wear from your shop, I get compliments. And I love telling people about your shop to help you grow. Woman owned speaks volumes in this day and age. . Also love how Ive yet to see someone else wearing something I bought from you!. Your variety allows us all to remain individuals in our style. Cheers to the first 10, and to many more.
Congratulations. You have done an amazing job starting and growing your business. A wonderful success story that many women including myself benefit from. Thanks for dressing us so stylish at a reasonable price. Well done.
