I don't know if you will read this, so I'm hoping by some miracle of fb and social media awesomeness you will get tagged by enough people that you can't avoid it and find some time to read it....
You see, here's the thing..... I am a fashion designer and I have been producing these tops with crowns on them for a few years now. Different colours, styles, sizes, all with this crown logo. They were always just called 'Crown tops'. Yet it wasn't until I started following your page that I realized, they aren't crown tops at all are they? They are Queen tops. The symbol is the same as your Queen symbol that you have tattooed on you. And every single mother/wife/sister/aunty/daughter that has been buying and wearing these tops for so long are queens to. And that's because of you. Because of you that these woman realise how special they actually are. Because of the mantra and community that you have created, that woman realise that they are actually all royalty. We've been wearing these tops at playgrounds, school pick ups, lunches, date nights and all, all this time, without realizing we were actually wearing Queen tops, telling the world we were Queens. 👸🏼👸🏼
I read your post the other day about how your are in the public eye now and get a lot of negative feedback, internet trolls and so on. And I just wanted to write this post to say that firstly I think your awesome. Secondly, you don't deserve a single one of those nasty words, and finally, that I want to send you one of my 'Queen' tops in every colour I have.
I don't care if you don't ever wear them, or even like them. Hang it on the wall or wear it to bed for all I care. I am not sending you them so you can post a photo of it for marketing reasons, I know that's not your style. I just want to you have one. I want you to know that even down here in NZ we know who you are and we thank you for being so fabulous. Thank you for saying in every single post, the words we all wish we had the balls to say. For having an opinion and voicing it. And for making every crazy mummy situation a normal one. You unite women in a way noone has before you and I think you are kick ass. You may not know how far your words reach, so from my couch a million miles away in Auckland, I thought I would let you know.
Here's where I come unstuck though, I have no idea where to send your new Queen tops to. So I'm hoping enough of my followers comment on this, tag you or share this, so you see it. I need you to read this, then private message me your postal address. That's all. Nothing more 👑👑
I will even give you a few extras so you can give them to any Queens you may know that are struggling through life and need a reason to smile. Because in my humble opinion, a new top brings a smile to a weary mumma's face.
And so that this post gets seen by more Queens and there is more chance of you seeing it, I will give away 3 Queen tops tomorrow, drawn from all the Queens that comment below with a message about how fabulous they think you are Constance.
Because nothing makes the heart feel warmer than reading a thousand comments about how you have an impact on people's lives. Sometimes through all the crap and trolling on fb, it's nice to just stop and read the good stuff. Read the comments from women who get it, who think what you tell us in your daily posts is uplifting and so damn satisfying, not to mention tearfully hilarious. I have 121,000 awesome lady Queens following this page, and I know a lot follow you to. So I thought it would be nice for you to hear some pretty words from them to you. Ain't no trolls on here 😀😀
So thanks Con, for creating a world of Queens. And for making me realise that these old crown tops I have been making have actually been dressing Queens for years, just took the queen leader like yourself to make me realize the powerful meaning behind them.
Off I go now to tackle my 3 kids to the dinner/bath/bed routine like only a Queen can, in my queen top. That FYI is no longer clean and white like it is in this photo from this morning, it now has baby vomit on the shoulder and a tiny bit of baby wee on the sleeve, but ain't that just life!!! I hope one day soon your wardrobe has some queen tops in it. I hope yours get a little baby wee on it to. You ain't doing life right if you can keep white clothes clean!!!
Peace and love. Keep kicking ass. Keep inspiring us. Keep normalizing motherhood, wife hood, life hood. Keep smiling and don't let the trolls bite.
