Hey everyone! It's me, Kimmie S'amore - owner, designer, manufacturer, webmaster, social media manager, and janitor at Tasty Treat, and I'd like to welcome you to the new Tasty Treat blog: Food For Thought!
Since the global pandemic has left many of us polers yearning for community, now that we're no longer able to congregate in our beloved studios and supportively ogle each other's rears whilst engaging in acts of dubious aerial gymnastics, I thought a blog might be a nice way to connect with my customers in a more in-depth way than FB and the 'gram. I'm not gonna lie, long-form writing is one of my favorite forms of expression for many reasons, chief among them being that it saves me from the hand-wringing and subsequent hours of Photoshopping that happen whenever I attempt to generate visual content for Tasty Treat's social media (full disclosure: I Photoshop Tasty Treat's advertisement photos heavily, because my home pole-space is a 10x10 bedroom with crooked New England plaster walls, not photogenic pink reclaimed barn wood panels).
Perhaps more importantly, though, it allows me to share some of my thoughts on the importance of sustainability in fashion, as well as the nuances of size-inclusivity and the challenges that come with designing with DD+ & curvy sizing in mind.
