What a Wonderful World

3

We had a Board Meeting on Thursday. It was my first since I’ve been back to work. I was a little nervous. I never say much. I just listen and take it all in. This time was different. Different because it had been so long since I sat at that table. Different because there was a lot of new faces. I think the new faces is what made me nervous. Not in a bad way. Just nervous. You’ve got to remember, at one time it was just Me, Lynette, and David at that table. The Three Amigos. Things have changed. I can’t even count on 2 hands how many people were sitting around that table.

They were going over “business” details and I zoned out. I zoned out and was in disbelief. It was crazy. It was almost the moment when Herb Brooks sees the 360 view of the arena in Lake Placid. Ya, you need to watch Miracle to understand that comparison.  Anyways…it was surreal.  I sat in my chair and had to pinch myself. I am sitting at a table with amazing talent. Tried and true talent. And they were all at that table for Matilda Jane. They were all at that table discussing Matilda Jane.. Everything from the package leaving the shipping desk to serving our Trunk Keepers to how is a phone call answered and all the back to the heart and soul of Matilda Jane was discussed. I am more excited than ever to have an every growing team.   1Of course my favorite discussions is always profit for a purpose.  For a long time I was afraid to grow. Afraid I would lose myself. Afraid we couldn’t keep the core, brand and culture if we grew. I was wrong. Everyone who has joined our team not only comes on board with great talent but with a great heart. A great talent to compliment the Matilda Jane team and a great heart to help others. Oh…it is so good. Being able to donate $30 from EVERY No-Knot Dress is huge.

It is such a wonderful feeling seeing the Matilda Jane family grow. Its almost like my Platinum post from a few days ago. Who would have thought. It’s amazing. I so need to start documenting this. It makes for such a great story. Okay, maybe not a story book but a table top book filled with photos! Just since the New Year we have added Lindsey in finance, Katie in recruiting, Allison in marketing, and Molly in production. I’ll make a point to introduce them on the blog this month. Gosh, I need to be a full-time blogger just to keep you up to date on all the happenings at MJC.

In the meantime….

2I’m dying to see your photos. I see them pop up on my newsfeed on FB when I get a chance. But would love for you to post them on the MJC Facebook Page.   Yes, post them on our page so I don’t miss any. Scrolling FB is seriously one of my fave thing to do when a season launches.  I love seeing all the Trunk Shows, decorations, girls trying on their fave outfits and just the feedback. And I know there’s so many great pieces to buy so I’ll help you out and pick 3 of you for a $150.00 gift card each.  Sound good?

Now I MUST add this song by Louis Armstrong cuz I’ve been singing it all day…

I see trees of green…….. red roses too
I see em bloom….. for me and for you
And I think to myself…. what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue….. clouds of white
Bright blessed days….dark sacred nights
And I think to myself …..what a wonderful world.

The colors of a rainbow…..so pretty ..in the sky
Are also on the faces…..of people ..going by
I see friends shaking hands…..sayin.. how do you do
They’re really sayin……i love you.

-Denise

Jodi Weil - February 3, 2014 - 11:46 pm

I can’t wait to attend my first show this weekend! I’ve been making chunky necklaces to complement this amazing release!

Stacey c - February 3, 2014 - 10:37 pm

Gorgeous smile on that beautiful girl 🙂 truly amazing what you and mj are doing for her and others through the MAF.

Donna Wolkan - February 3, 2014 - 10:22 pm

Ahhhhh that song gets me every time! Not in a bad way, but a it is really that wonderful way. What a nice end to a blog, now I’m singing it in my head too 🙂

Meghan Michael - February 3, 2014 - 8:32 pm

that is so amazing of you! we just learned of MJ and oh my goodness!!!!! We are IN LOVE! this was my first release and my (almost) 6 year old was giddy as we were picking out the pieces to buy… she is obsessed with anything that twirls and I can’t wait to try all the pieces on her =)

Holly Holton - February 3, 2014 - 7:42 pm

Congratulations on a growing team and a fabulous spring collection! It’s a wonderful parade is gorgeous!!!

Kelly - February 3, 2014 - 6:20 pm

Simply amazing

Ashley Sims - February 3, 2014 - 4:15 pm

The collection is absolutely amazing. I love it! Everyone loves it!! I also wanted to say, you made me tear up. “What a wonderful world” is very near and dear to my heart! I’ll show you what I have on your wall 🙂

Jodi Webb - February 3, 2014 - 3:44 pm

I had no idea about the no knot donation…. I guess I will place a 3rd order??? 🙂

Kayla W - February 3, 2014 - 3:20 pm

What a beautiful collection! Congatulations! I can only immagine how fun it is for you all on release day 🙂

Michelle K - February 3, 2014 - 3:17 pm

I loved the entire line, but even more so your giving spirit 🙂 You and your company are such a blessing to so many!

Christine V - February 3, 2014 - 2:50 pm

Haha! Great Miracle comment! Love that movie and totally get what you are saying! Congratulations on your success and a beautiful spring line. I have to say I was very impressed with the Mama line; the taupe slouchy sweater and maxi dress were two of my favorites! Gives me something to shoot for with my weight loss! Congrats again =)

Heather Jones - February 3, 2014 - 12:41 pm

I am so impressed with you and inspired by how much you have grown and how positive you stay! I’ve watched Matilda Jane grow and it’s amazing. I live seeing little girls at the Store or at school wearing your clothes. Or when I’m wearing Matilda Jane and someone comments on my clothes and knows where it’s from, I feel like I have an instant connection with that person. And on an ending note, that song is my favorite! I sing it to my newborn son, Finnley, all the time.

Erica S - February 3, 2014 - 12:10 pm

Your attitude, kindness and compassion are contagious. I’m so excited to have you back in full force!

Cheri - February 3, 2014 - 10:57 am

What a beautiful post–I love that Louis Armstrong song!!! And I am so in love with this collection. I hosted my first trunk show yesterday with my awesome trunk keeper, Shawna Pesina, and we had SO much fun! There were several converts among the families who came! 🙂

I love that you pictured the Love Bug Knot Top–my absolute favorite from this line. I am so excited to be getting it for my two-year-old. And I can hardly wait for warmer weather so she can wear it with the Puzzle Shorties. 🙂

Thanks so much for all you do!!!

Ursala D - February 3, 2014 - 10:54 am

I would have loved to post pictures but there was not much for me to buy for my little girl who wears tween sizes. I was really sad that MJC no longer wants to cater for my little girl.

Erica O - February 3, 2014 - 10:07 am

Congratulations! We love Parade Day and I can’t wait to get the pieces on my little girl.

Lori Robertson - February 3, 2014 - 9:52 am

Inspiring! The new collection is gorgeous!

Michelle B - February 3, 2014 - 9:44 am

The new line is beautiful. It’s exciting to watch your company grow. So glad that your heart is not being lost in the process. Can’t wait to get our new MJ pretties and see them in person!

Eve Mock - February 3, 2014 - 9:43 am

Your spirit, attitude and generosity are amazing. As an oncology infusion nurse, I see how cancer though devastating, brings out the very best in others. You are a true example of this! Keep up the hard work. Your products are the best!!

Gina - February 3, 2014 - 8:23 am

You ladies out did yourself! This line was gorgeous! Amazing!!! Thank you for all your hard work!

StateCHick - February 3, 2014 - 8:10 am

Yes! What a wonderful world!! And what a wonderful company you are!

You are staying true to you and to helping others and that is why we love you so much. The clothes aren’t bad either! 🙂

Glad you are back!

Jessica R. - February 3, 2014 - 7:37 am

Amazing clothing, but even more amazing that your company gives back so much to your customers, and of course to The Mighty Acorn 🙂

Lori Gee - February 3, 2014 - 7:23 am

Denise you and your team definitely hit a homerun on this one!! It was so hard to decide on pieces, I wanted to spend on my 2 girls but I also love the adult pieces!! Thank you for all the pretties but especially for your unmatched generosity!

Tiffany Wilkins - February 3, 2014 - 7:18 am

Looks like we’ll be buying a no knot dress next release! I can’t tell you how much I love supporting a company that supports other. Spread the love! <3

Jenna Sill - February 3, 2014 - 7:17 am

I love that you have built such an incredible company with such strong roots. I have been an MJ lover for about 4 years and know there has been a ton of growth in that time. It amazes me how level headed this company remains with great core values! Keep up the awesome work and know your clothing is loved by those big and small!

Julia - February 3, 2014 - 7:05 am

Your all so inspirational!! I adore the new line!! Just pure brilliant!! <3

Carrie - February 3, 2014 - 4:05 am

what a day… we loved everything.

Beth R. - February 3, 2014 - 2:48 am

What a great story ! So inspirational and touching knowing something we love is helping out others too ! Thanks for your kind heart and a chance to give back

Donna Curtis - February 3, 2014 - 2:16 am

My daughter sometimes models for other companies but we keep returning to our first love, B-janes she called it. Life long Matilda Jane fans here!!!

teisha m - February 3, 2014 - 2:14 am

Hi. Love the new release. My daughter is very interested in the Africa school, she is so proud of what MJ contributes to the world. You are inspiring a generation of powerful women philanthropists! What a wonderful world indeed! Thank you.

Errin Andrus - February 3, 2014 - 1:53 am

I was so impressed to see a $30 donation with every purchase of the no knot dress. When I saw the dress hanging on the hanger at the trunk show it gave me chills. Thank you for being so wonderful!

Gabriela Lavat - February 3, 2014 - 12:19 am

I heard of MJ when heart soul and pride was launching, I remember looking through the site, reading through your posts, and little by little loving the clothing you design. Not only that but seeing all those beautiful little girls dressed in MJ that look like little girls! I started buying MJ for my daughter and loving the clothes. But I got to say I was amazed to read how your company has grown so much! I have a fascination with business success stories an yours is one of them! This collection is beautiful!

Sarah Harper - February 3, 2014 - 12:17 am

I love this company! Thank you for working so hard to create beautiful designs that capture the wonder and preciousness of my child!

Debbie Howitt - February 3, 2014 - 12:13 am

So many cute things in this release! Wish I could buy much more.

Erica G - February 2, 2014 - 11:57 pm

How did I not know this about the Trunk Show Knot dress when I ordered yesterday?! Mmmm. Perhaps I will “need” to order some more 😉

Mindy - February 2, 2014 - 11:35 pm

Absolutely loved the first release! I have no idea how I’m going to trim down my order! I can’t wait to see what follows!!!

Susan Bjork - February 2, 2014 - 11:27 pm

I just love reading your blogs. It makes the company feel so personal..so like-able and so real. It always gives me a chance to get a glimpse of the past…years I didn’t know MJ existed. It’s clear your generosity come from the heart…looks like it’s always been there and is such an inspiration. The pics on your page of the little sad but now happy girl just melted my heart. You’ve truly touched the world.

Candice - February 2, 2014 - 11:26 pm

Just thank you. I’m so glad I found MJC. 🙂

Leanne Royal - February 2, 2014 - 11:22 pm

Oh what a wonderful world indeed! My daughter and I were invited to a trunk party. Not knowing what to expect, we went with open minds. As soon as the door opened her eyes lit up… the warmth, the balloons, the colors; everything was well with the world. After meeting all of the wonderful women and girls, she was walked over to “the rack.” Well YOU thought you had a Herb Brooks moment. (Living in Northwest Ohio and being around hockey my entire life, I’ve seen Miracle more times than I should admit) I have never seen my 4 year old daughter so immersed in color and smiles. After doing some research into what Matilda Jane is – I was taken aback not only for its style, but its class and the story of inspiration. Well done to you, your team and the spirit of Matilda Jane.

Joy Williams - February 2, 2014 - 11:17 pm

Thanks for making me smile tonight! This collection is amazing and so are you!

Wendy - February 2, 2014 - 11:14 pm

Welcome back mama! I’ve missed your posts! Love the new line, maybe my favorite since Hammond Bay and thank you thank you for bringing back the Betsy dress! Was looking at pictures from 2010 of my little squishy girl in her Homegrown Betsy and can’t wait to get the new one. Muah!!

Leigh Anne H. - February 2, 2014 - 11:06 pm

So glad you’re back! It’s A Wonderful Parade is beautiful!!

Amy - February 2, 2014 - 11:03 pm

My daughter and I had so much fun picking out her new dresses from the spring line. We can’t wait for warmer weather. Thank you!

Laura Davidson - February 2, 2014 - 10:53 pm

I love how your excitement and passion come through your writing! The new collection is gorgeous, and I cannot wait to see upcoming releases as well!

Becky Hebert - February 2, 2014 - 10:48 pm

Amazing job and amazing team! I will have to purchase the no-knot dress for sure now! Love your commitment to giving back!

Katherine - February 2, 2014 - 10:36 pm

Such a wonderful day for you! And such a beautiful line of clothes! At each trunk show I host I feel like Chris Harrison on the Bachelor…I tell my friends, “but really this is the best release yet!” Thanks for sharing all your creative genius!

Jessica - February 2, 2014 - 10:34 pm

I have not found another amazing little girls clothing line who let’s my little girl be just that, a little girl! Thank you so much!

jasmine - February 2, 2014 - 10:23 pm

it always and always beautiful. Love every pieces you and the Mjc team design for our girls. their happy face, giggle and their little body twirl, dancing around with matilda jane clothing. It’s simple things that priceless. Thank you for you and your team. God bless MJC 🙂

Bianca - February 2, 2014 - 10:15 pm

Denise,
I have first starting purchasing MJC when the paint by numbers collection came out, I love my MJC pants and I have started adding shirts and would love to see more dresses. Keep up the wonderful work.
Bianca

Lindsey - February 2, 2014 - 10:13 pm

Adding the no knot to my list- what a wonderful contribution to the foundation

Sugey - February 2, 2014 - 10:09 pm

You are so inspiring… SO real! Thank you for making more than just cloths! Thank you for creating memories!

Amanda F - February 2, 2014 - 10:00 pm

Love the <3 of you and your company!

We just started buying MJ last year and we love that your clothes help little girls look like little girls (my girls are 5, 7 & 9)! We get so many compliments on the cute unique clothes they have on!

LQQKME2 - February 2, 2014 - 9:53 pm

Your words always make me think back to old memories or inspire me to be something or someone that matters. I get so emotional & giddy reading your posts! Stop it now…lol!

Christine A. - February 2, 2014 - 9:47 pm

Denise- Thank you for daring to dream a little dream! Your humility is refreshing and your heart is inspiring! Congratulations on another beautiful line!

Jennifer Ferrante - February 2, 2014 - 9:40 pm

Welcome back! The Spring line is beautiful and I love the no knot donation even more! Your talent blesses so many 🙂

Melissa - February 2, 2014 - 9:32 pm

Denise god bless you! Your clothing is wonderful. You do wonderful things for people and YOU are wonderful!!

Jen Vess - February 2, 2014 - 9:27 pm

One of my favorite songs of all time. I think of it often when I look at my kids. Even with the chaos that often surrounds us, they remind me just how wonderful this world is. 🙂

Luvmi Webber ( the one & only) - February 2, 2014 - 9:18 pm

Love it!! Love the release too.

Amber Vaughn - February 2, 2014 - 9:16 pm

I love Matilda Jane..so much. That little girls face lights up the room.

Sarah M - February 2, 2014 - 9:10 pm

It truly is a work of art! My first purchase from a release and I can’t wait to get them on my daughter! Your blog always “brings it home” and makes me even more happy to wear these clothes!

Angie B - February 2, 2014 - 9:09 pm

I do have to say, this is my favorite spring collection. I usually favor fall. I have never wanted so many spring items. Great job. Glad you are back, it is so nice to hear from you.

When you’re smilin’ keep on smilin’
The whole world smiles with you
And when you’re laughin’ oh when youre laughin’
The sun comes shinin? through

But when you?re cryin’ you bring on the rain
So stop your sighin ‘be happy again
keep on smilin Cause when you’re smilin’
The whole world smiles with you

Oh when you’re smilin’ keep on smilin’
The whole world smiles with you
Ah when you’re laughin’ keep on laughin’
The sun comes shinin’ through

Now when you’re cryin’ you bring on the rain
So stop that sighin’ be happy again
keep on smilin Cause when you’re smilin’
And the whole world smiles with you

The great big world will smile with

The whole wide world will smile with you

Jacqueline - February 2, 2014 - 9:09 pm

You brought it MJC this release was nothing short of amazing. I wish I could posess the talent all you have,but I just put my DD in the darlings. She feels like a superhero in her Matilda Jane she says “she can do anything”!! Love you guys!

Marcy Schneider Hoffman - February 2, 2014 - 9:07 pm

I’m sure you weren’t the only one that was glad that you were back around that table! Even though MJC keeps growing, YOU will always be MJ for me! It is your blog posts that I most look forward to! Many blessings to you, Denise!

Jordan - February 2, 2014 - 9:06 pm

It is an inspiring company and community you have created, Denise. I recently started reading the Mighty Acorn blog and Facebook page, and you’ve captured such beautiful smiles on the girls. A lot of our children are little, but I think they too feel the love behind their clothing. When my two year old asked me yesterday if she could pick out her “My Tilda Jane to go get Daddy from the airport,” after he had been away for a week, I knew how special it made her feel. Anyway, I know this is silly, but thank you for maintaining this blog so we can feel connected to everything behind MJC. 🙂

Abby - February 2, 2014 - 9:03 pm

Love the new line, but even more than that … I love that you are back! It really feels like the old days again. Beautiful clothes, great quality, and fun blog posts to read 😉

Alison - February 2, 2014 - 8:59 pm

I love this line, thanks for keeping us updated and creating wonderfully clothes!

Stacie Petta - February 2, 2014 - 8:56 pm

Pretty 1st release!! 🙂

Leslie Click - February 2, 2014 - 8:49 pm

Simply… ❤️beautiful.

Kim Clark - February 2, 2014 - 8:48 pm

Oh I love it ! ❤️❤️❤️ probably the best song EVER and you must listen to the IZ version merged with somewhere over the rainbow ❤️Ahhhhhhh…….. Beauty-ful ! I love your clothes, your beautiful ways to share the love and the way my little loves feel like princesses when they wear their “Tilma jane” ! 🙂

Wendy Just - February 2, 2014 - 8:36 pm

Love the new line! Glad you are back at the table!

Jennifer Jarrett - February 2, 2014 - 8:31 pm

I love that MJC is so much more than adorable clothes!

Amanda Wells - February 2, 2014 - 8:30 pm

I love your company!! Your collections are amazing!!

Becky N - February 2, 2014 - 8:28 pm

I love this release! My favorite part is how colorful it is with some neutrals mixed in! So so pretty!

Courtney - February 2, 2014 - 8:28 pm

I put a request in for someone to contact me over a week ago to have a trunk show and haven’t heard anything . I am near deteoit michigan and am very interested . Could someone contact me please ?

Jill T. - February 2, 2014 - 8:28 pm

Denise,
You are such an amazing inspiration! I have a small business peddling my hair goods at local markets and when I’m getting poured on, or the wind is threatening to take my tent, I pray, then laugh, and often think about your beginnings. Then to tackle the Big C with such positivity and have your eyes opened to the little things. God has blessed you and I love that you bless others. This is your year!!!

KaMarlowete - February 2, 2014 - 8:23 pm

Could *I* be your full time blogger?! 😉 I love this offer to benefit the Mighty Acorns. It makes me fall in love with MJC all over again.

Chris Taylor - February 2, 2014 - 8:22 pm

I would love to win! I love that you are donating $30 with each no knot dress purchase.:)

Stacey - February 2, 2014 - 8:21 pm

Never, ever feel intimidated to be at the table. You are the heart and soul of Matilda Jane and while everyone else on your talented team is valuable and performs important roles… Without your guidance, touch and spirit, Matilda Jane Clothing wouldn’t have a cult following or enjoy such success while making a positive impact on the world like it does! Own your seat at the table for all the little girls you are dressing who will grow up knowing they deserve their seat at the table, too. Xoxo, Stacey

Portia Oberkfell - February 2, 2014 - 8:20 pm

This release is absolutely beautiful. I love mj not only because of its timeless beauty….but mostly because of the beauty of every employee. Thank you for creating a brand that shows beauty, that shows love, that shows heart.

Matthew 6:21- For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Amy Ijames - February 2, 2014 - 8:14 pm

Thank you Denise, your heart is so full of inspiration, it’s overflowing with love and it is so clear to us all. Let me thank you as well for all you do for the mighty acorns foundation. I pray the love this MJ community has for you keeps on coming and your vision keeps on growing.

Courtney - February 2, 2014 - 8:13 pm

My heart swells. And I fall in love with all of you again and again. I love that your vision has come to light and that we all get to be a part of it. I am praying you are finding time to rest as well. Love and light to all of u!! Xx

Toni Brown - February 2, 2014 - 8:01 pm

This is my first Matilda Jane upload. I met my first trunk keeper ( Ashley in texarkana, ar). I attended my first MJ party. I bought my first MJ release line. This was my daughters first MJ to try on at the trunk keepers show. I met my first MJ lovers in person at the party! I made my first party for the 2nd release ( of course with Ashley by my side.) I work in Healthcare and I don’t get to see happy faces, but this.. This Matilda Jane thing… Makes me happy! I love the creations. I just wanted to say ‘thank you.’

Jen - February 2, 2014 - 8:00 pm

I love that you are donating money from every no knot dress! I think that speaks volumes about your company! Thank you!

Kaitlin Hilger - February 2, 2014 - 8:00 pm

I love how you continuously give back….so excited to be a part of MJ! <3

Stacey C - February 2, 2014 - 7:52 pm

… Profit for Purpose… I can’t get over that… It’s perfect… And it’s the reason my heart is with MJ….

Alicia H - February 2, 2014 - 7:52 pm

One of my favorite songs, now I’ll be singing it too!!
This line is amazing so far, I cannot wait to see the rest. Loving the new emilia and ALL THE GREEN!!! 🙂

Teresa James - February 2, 2014 - 7:52 pm

Love,love the new line!!We haven’t been with Matilda Jane long but my dd wants to wear her “Tilda Jane” everyday,Even to preschool and I try not to stress over her getting it messy,lol.Anyway your great and the co is great.I may be a newbie right now but before long I’ll be a veteran buyer.I hope my daughter enjoys “Tilda Jane”for a long time.PS I would love to win a gift card where do we sign up?

Nichelle - February 2, 2014 - 7:48 pm

So many new cute pieces! I loved getting to see them in person at my local trunk show!

Gran - February 2, 2014 - 7:47 pm

Beautiful song to have in my head tonight. Beautiful person who shared it with us. Now I have to get an order out for those knot dresses. I think it won’t be too long until those girls in Kitale have a place to sit and eat AND a place to do laundry. Denise, you and Sam and MJC Team did it again with the Parade line!!!!

Rosa Rasburry - February 2, 2014 - 7:46 pm

Your story is such a great testimony both personally and professionally. Thanks for everything you do!!
BTW we ordered the not knot hands down my favorite

Samantha G - February 2, 2014 - 7:46 pm

I have to say I enjoy strolling through your FB to check out all the personal photos of the little ones in different options for each piece. It is amazing too me how many tops go with so many different bottoms and then you can take a summer outfit and make it into a winter outfit with just a little layering. You just have an amazing company and the giving part is one of the things I tell right away when introducing a person to your company.Your heart and your creativity was just amazing things to me.

Becky - February 2, 2014 - 7:40 pm

I loved this release! I loved this blog! I loved that dress! I love Matilda Jane! And I love you Denise and how much you have inspired and changed the world. Thank you.

Angela Wells Zigrossi - February 2, 2014 - 7:37 pm

I love the Louis Armstrong, What A Wonderful World song also. It was played at my wedding for Father/Daughter dance!! My Daddy cried!!

Sarah - February 2, 2014 - 7:34 pm

I love hearing this- your platinum post was so exciting as well. I love the feeling I get when I contact someone from your company it’s grass roots/ home town customer service- and then I take my girls out in some cute MJ and see it all around us. It reminds me that you guys still have this huge impact, but treat everyone as if they were your neighbor down the street. No matter what, this will keep me coming back long after my girls outgrow your sizes. Love all of your hearts <3

Stephanie D - February 2, 2014 - 7:26 pm

YOU ROCK!! It’s as simple as that…
MATILDA JANE ROCKS!!!!!

Erica J - February 2, 2014 - 7:23 pm

Love this! Love it’s a Wonderful parade! LOVE MJC!!!

Holly - February 2, 2014 - 7:20 pm

Beautiful collection! It was so fun to shop for my 5 year old…. my list of loves is so long!

Loretta C. - February 2, 2014 - 7:19 pm

As always, I was and am blown away with your beautiful heart and message. I will be hosting my 7th trunk show in 2 years for the next release and so excited to share this beautiful collection with my friends, old and new 🙂 Thank you for the wonderful collection and the little bit of wonderful world you give us everyday loving MJC.

Tabitha - February 2, 2014 - 7:19 pm

I just hosted my first trunk show today. There is nothing like seeing the line in person before you buy and I loved playing dress up with my little!! Thanks for helping me keep her looking like a little girl for as long as possible!

Megan Pape - February 2, 2014 - 7:16 pm

Absolutely love this release! Cant wait for my 2 yr old daughter to try on her “fashion show” (as she calls it)! Matilda Jane makes it a wonderful world!

Veronica B - February 2, 2014 - 7:16 pm

It’s always awesome hearing from you! I LOVE everything about this collection so far- while I was unable to buy anything from this release, it was amazing to go to my first trunk show and feel the buzz and excitement from everyone there. I hope that I will get the opportunity to see many more beautiful things from this collection; that no knot dress was a definite favorite of mine, and it is awesome that so much of the money to buy it is going toward a worthy cause. :). Thanks for making my little girl just a little more beautiful and confident. 🙂

We,have been buying Matilda Jane for out darling little granddaughter that GOD felt the need for my husband and I to have her @age 2days. We also have full custody of my 54 year old sister in law (she is 54 years and SE moved he’d in with us 12 years ago when my mil passed unexpectantly.) My husband is disabled so he cares for the two while I work. Our smiles …….our happiness……is always surrounded by the little ones mj. Seems every piece we obtain brings so many more happy memories made. Our family wants to say ,Thank you!!!

I love how Matilda Jane is so much more than clothes!

Wonderful Parade is wonderfully adorable!!! The summer lines are always my favorite. I would love to see another Bubblegum style dress with the cute little ditsy print for my oldest, so beautiful!!!

Ashley - February 2, 2014 - 7:14 pm

Thanks for your great blog posts and the new line. It’s beautiful!

I love hearing your “voice” again on the blog, Denise! And I also love Louis Armstrong’s optimistic song “What a Wonderful World”…it always reminds me of my very special step-brother who we sadly lost at the young age of 21, but who lived life to the absolute fullest and always saw what a wonderful world it can be. <3

My daughter has been wearing MJ since she we discovered it when she was wearing a size 6 at age 5. Every piece we have owned has put a smile on both our faces! I just purchased her 3 dresses in size 14, and it makes me sad that she may not fit in MJ next year. But she has grown into this beautiful young lady with a heart of gold and I am so proud. We would love for you to make MJ in tween sizes 16/18. Thank you for designing clothing that makes my daughter scream every time she opens one of your packages and makes her feel as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside.

I love reading your posts. They always make me feel happy. I feel like you are a friend. I feel like I ‘really’ know you. With that said, I’m in LOVE with this line. I can’t even start picking my favorites because I love them all. The pink with the navy is such an awesome combination. I can’t wait to get my pieces and see my little sweetie strutting her stuff. Keep up the great work!! ❤️

Love that you donate 30 to charity! Many blessings as you start back your MJC reign. Your amazing Denise. You are in our daily prayers!

I picked out the same top for my oldest! I love that I can coordinate my girls without dressing them just alike. And what an awesome company to give back to such a worthy cause!

Kari - February 2, 2014 - 6:52 pm

I would think sitting at a table while everyone discussed your “baby”, your vision, your dream would make anyone nervous. Congrats on another successful launch.

Angir - February 2, 2014 - 6:51 pm

Loved seeing all the pretties from the new line finally!! It may be some of my favorites yet, especially love that my oldest is getting the ticket booth ellie (she loves horses) and my youngest is getting the trunk show no know dress( she loves elephants) I’m hoping there might be a giraffe in the future releases and my middle little girl will be thrilled as well 🙂

Andrea Saylanfamily - February 2, 2014 - 6:49 pm

I love that song.

bethy - February 2, 2014 - 6:47 pm

Take this moment in and BE SO PROUD OF YOU! What I love most about MJC is the story. The story of you. It is amazing to be able to tell my daughters to follow THEIR dream, to see it through, to know ONE PERSON can make such a difference. Yeah, the clothes are A-FLIPPIN-ADORABLE, but it is SO MUCH MORE. We are SO proud of you, so excited to be able to support your giving, our giving, and to be a part of your dream. 🙂

Rachel Fields - February 2, 2014 - 6:46 pm

It was so fun; what a great weekend I’ve had all thanks to Matilda Jane! It was hard not to buy EVERYTHING! LOL! I hope for many more great release days to come; I am already counting the days ’til April’s Release #2! 🙂 Thank you!

I LOVE that you are going to donate a portion of the no knot!!! You always amaze me with your love of helping others! I must also admit that one of my favorite things is scrolling your FB page as well, seeing all those little ladies in their MJ and you can’t help but smile 🙂

Amber hill - February 2, 2014 - 6:36 pm
