Let's stick together through these worrying times
Posted on March 17 2020
I know everyone is saying the same thing, but I genuinely haven't known what to say about the current global situation or whether to even say anything at all. But as more and more unfolds every day (and every hour at times) it feels increasingly unnatural not to, so today I just wanted to say a few words about it.
I was meant to be going to Spain on Thursday to visit our factory- obviously that's not happening now and my first thoughts have been for our friends and colleagues over there, as well as here in the UK- we're all one big work family. I'm pleased to say that we're all healthy and well at the moment, but are obviously extremely saddened and worried about the whole situation.
Usually this is a really busy time for us as people begin preparing for their weddings and special occasions, but understandably everyone has new priorities right now which are far more important than a pair of shoes. We totally get that, and first and foremost I just wanted to send you my heartfelt thoughts and say that I hope you're doing okay. I can only imagine the stress and heartbreak this is causing for so many people.
Secondly I wanted to let you know that we're here. We know that so many plans will be on hold right now but please know that we're here to help you in any way we can, and when the time comes that perhaps you can get back to some kind of normality, we'll be ready and waiting. We know you might not want to order your shoes right now, but if you need any help in choosing them when the time comes, or want some advice or just someone to talk to please get in touch.
We're a small team here at Rachel Simpson, and like you we're worried and unsure of what the right thing to do is. We've been trying to think of positive things we can do- not to make light of this terrible situation but just to try and lighten the mood a little bit and try and offer some light relief.
So we thought we'd bring you a virtual showroom, and try and bring a bit of wedding planning to you- especially as so many people are self isolating and stuck at home. Tune in from 12pm tomorrow when we'll be live on Instagram giving you a closer look at the styles you might have been looking at online. We can talk you through them, maybe even try them on for you and answer any questions you might have in real time.
I'll be honest we've not done this before, so if nothing else why not tune in for a good old laugh at how rubbish I'll be on Instagram live! Because let's face it, we all need a bit of a laugh at the moment and I am more than happy to provide that ;)
See you tomorrow.
