Kitina Bartovick:

Hi Kelly. How are you?

Kelly Mize Holley:

Hi friend. How are you? I'm so excited we're doing this. This is so fun.

Kitina Bartovick:

Thank you so much. I'm so excited to do this together. You've been doing a great job with all your TikToks, and just having so much fun during this quarantine, and just thank you so much. And supporting all the local people.

Kelly Mize Holley:

I mean, I'm loving it. I'm happy to. We've got to support local, obviously, but we need to have a little fun too, right?

Kitina Bartovick:

Got to have some fun. Yes, yes. Well, I just want to thank everyone who's joining in today or right now at 5:00 happy hour. So I hope everyone has a drink with them, and are ready to see some fun clothes. We are so excited to announce the new launch of a website, finally for the Dolphin Fine Linens. I know. So excited. It's been a long time coming. This has been a perfect time for us as we're looking at it as a blessing in disguise, this quarantine, to allow us to get some things done that we've talked about forever and ever.

Kitina Bartovick:

So you can go to the Dolphin Fine Linens now, and you can shop online. We'll be having local free delivery still within Tulsa and Jenks, and curbside delivery Monday through Friday 10:00 to 2:00. And throughout this live broadcast that we're having on Facebook, there'll be a link that'll pop up to enter to win a fabulous gift basket from Thymes with all kinds of nice things for your mother, from lotion soap, a diffuser, all in a lemon scent, which just makes us so happy right now. Just a scent of spring and clean. And then, Kelly, I'm so excited you're going to offer a free virtual consultation for 30 minutes with you.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Yes.

Kitina Bartovick:

That's so nice. Thank you.

Kelly Mize Holley:

I'm excited to do this. I feel like this is such a great opportunity to be doing virtual styling with people and virtual closet clean outs. It's given me the opportunity to kind of develop that program a little bit further. So I am so excited to have the opportunity to connect with people. This is the best time to be doing a closet clean out refresh, everything. Just kind of like you and I talked about the other day when you were in your closet. I think that it's that time when everybody is like, well, it's time to switch, right? I think it's finally time to switch to spring. I think we're okay.

Kitina Bartovick:

Yes.

Kelly Mize Holley:

It's good to go.

Kitina Bartovick:

Yes. And then I think it's a good time also for a lot of us to even try on some of our stuff, because I know I was putting on some of my white jeans and stuff, and I thought, how did I? Maybe I washed them in really hot water.

Kitina Bartovick:

Or maybe I need to .... them out and stretch them out, because they weren't fitting the way I remembered them to. We really need to get out of our leggings.

Kelly Mize Holley:

We're all there with, Tina. So maybe now is not the best time to be trying on white jeans, but maybe it is getting rid of other things that you know that you're not going to wear.

Kitina Bartovick:

That's true. Well, you know-

Kelly Mize Holley:

[inaudible 00:03:10] a lot.

Kitina Bartovick:

As we're all kind of in our lounge wear, working virtually with, and communicating every day. I mean, this piece has been a lifesaver. It's a piece by PJ Harlow. It's a satin pant that feels so good. And on me, it is a cropped pant. I don't know if you can see it or no. So on me, or like you, Kelly, it fits as a nice pant. So we don't even have to have a hem.

Kelly Mize Holley:

On me, it's a full length pant. I'm [inaudible 00:03:46]

Kitina Bartovick:

[crosstalk 00:03:47] It's nice to have something that we don't have to hem. So that's great. And then under it is a great tank top too. All of these pieces wash so well. But even just, let's say we were talking, just, hold on. So confused here. From the waist up. It looks like I'm dressed for the day. So this is a great piece that comes in a blush. It comes in a really pretty... if I can figure out what color this is.

Kelly Mize Holley:

It's like a gray. It's gray, right?

Kitina Bartovick:

That's not the official name for it, but yes, it's a gray. And then also a really pretty light blue color that I don't have with me, but it's like a baby blue. And it's beautiful.

Kelly Mize Holley:

I think that you-

Kitina Bartovick:

And it's so nice, because this set also comes-

Kelly Mize Holley:

Love it. So comfortable. I think that you can do a lot with these pieces too. So I was going to say, I mean, you're all put together and cute for Bedfordshire, which is what I call it. We're going to Bedfordshire. When you get up, you're ready to go, and have your first Zoom meeting, and you don't even have to change, right?

Kitina Bartovick:

Yeah. And what, say you did really quick, how cute would this be? I don't know. You tell me. White-

Kelly Mize Holley:

Jeans?

Kitina Bartovick:

Linen shorts?

Kelly Mize Holley:

White linen shorts. I love the shorts that are the knee shorts right now. The Bermuda shorts that are coming back. And then with the length of that, you could do a little front tuck and then do a scarf as a belt. It would be really pretty.

Kitina Bartovick:

Yeah, that would be darling. Yeah, that's a great idea. You'll have to TikTok about that later.

Kelly Mize Holley:

I will.

Kitina Bartovick:

My dog is jumping at our door. I don't know if you can hear her, but I'm going to let her out real quick.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Should we do one of the TikTok videos?

Kitina Bartovick:

If she can .... Oh there you are. There's your TikTok today. This was so cute.

Kelly Mize Holley:

So here's me getting up. I have the whole outfit on. This is the... Right? Barefoot Dreams. Okay. So I'm showing you then how to do the... Now then how you can wear the pants several ways, which was so super fun. So obviously, I've got my thank you wine just in time t shirt on today. So I would do that with the checkerboard bands. And then I did it with just a plain white v neck t shirt, and I wrapped the little top around my waist. So you just have kind of a little, it pulls it all together. And then I did a sandal with it, and I put a little button down shirt, like a little silk button down. And people ask me how to wear regular tops with joggers all the time. And that's what I would do. I just tied it at the waist, just a little tie, like a square knot, you know? And that's kind of how I did it. So then you can wear those little joggers out in the world and be super cute and put together and not have to worry about it. It's such a great set.

Kitina Bartovick:

Yeah, I love that. Okay, so I, as you were talking, I just went and changed. Oh my gosh. Okay, I love this piece, so I can't do this watching myself. It's reversed.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Yeah. Same.

Kitina Bartovick:

Anyway, this is a Barefoot Dreams piece. You had tried on the black one the other day.

Kelly Mize Holley:

I love it.

Kitina Bartovick:

Oh my gosh.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Yes.

Kitina Bartovick:

Which do you like better?

Kelly Mize Holley:

Step back a little bit so people can see how long it is. Step back to buy. Can you do that? Yeah.

Kitina Bartovick:

I don't know.

Kelly Mize Holley:

There you go. We'll just make it work. That's perfect.

Kitina Bartovick:

I tell my kids not to get on the furniture. I'll get on the furniture. So this is the long one, and there is a short one also with pockets. The long one doesn't have pockets, so on somebody our height, I know you're a little bit shorter. What's that little trick you do?

Kelly Mize Holley:

I do the little tie at the bottom. I just did a video for my ebook today about tying up a maxi dress at the bottom.

Kitina Bartovick:

You do it so effortlessly.

Kelly Mize Holley:

I know. It's easy.

Kitina Bartovick:

I feel like... Okay, so you just do that.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Yeah. Yeah. And then you're good to go.

Kitina Bartovick:

So cute.

Kelly Mize Holley:

You could wear that little thing with sneakers, sandals, flip flops. You can belt it.

Kitina Bartovick:

Yes.

Kelly Mize Holley:

You can wear a little shawl over it. Or a scarf, even, like a pretty silk scarf.

Kitina Bartovick:

Oh yes. That would be really, really pretty. Here's that Barefoot Dreams shawl.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Nancy Murphy is so sweet. She said those are great outfits. Thank you so much.

Kitina Bartovick:

I love Nancy. She's the best. She probably has one of every .....

Kelly Mize Holley:

She probably does.

Kitina Bartovick:

She needs to work so differently.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Well, we can help her with that by all means.

Kitina Bartovick:

I love this piece too, because I love to travel with it. You can have on a tank top, shorts, jeans, whatever. Wear it open, and then if you spill something on yourself, you just do this, and then you're covered.

Kelly Mize Holley:

This is the Barefoot Dreams one. Did I do a-

Kitina Bartovick:

Yes.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Thank you, Julie.

Kitina Bartovick:

Hi, Julie.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Hi, Julie. I need to get up and show you my outfit. Can you wear that with boots in the winter? 100% yes.

Kitina Bartovick:

Good question.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Don't you think you could wear that with boots in the winter?

Kitina Bartovick:

That would be darling. Why didn't we think of that?

Kelly Mize Holley:

Yeah. Why didn't I think of that?

Kitina Bartovick:

Even if you put... You're going to have to do that now. Even if you put leggings on with it, and then boots. Okay, here's your wrap.

Kelly Mize Holley:

So this is the one that you're wearing. So it comes in this gray color and then the color that you have on, right?

Kitina Bartovick:

Yes.

Kelly Mize Holley:

So I did three things. I only did three, because I wanted to wear it with white jeans. So I did it with a little belt. I'm trying to show off my dancing skills at the end.

Kitina Bartovick:

You did great. It was like you were doing the Merengue, the Mamba- 

Kitina Bartovick:

You took yours and put it in your pocket. But what I like to do is I take it, and because of this fabric, which is machine washable, and if you spill anything on it, you just flick it off. I don't even have to worry about it. It's just super soft. I tuck it into my shoulder.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Oh, okay.

Kitina Bartovick:

So then you can drape it this way. Or you can still bring it like that.

Kelly Mize Holley:

So that's a fourth way to wear it.

Kitina Bartovick:

Yeah. So it will hold itself there too.

Kelly Mize Holley:

The fabric, I know. I noticed that when I was trying to get on, like the fabric holds itself. Like it holds itself. It sticks to itself or however you want to say that. Yeah.

Kitina Bartovick:

Yes. Okay. So we saw Julie pop on, which is so nice. She's the owner of JuJu Jams here, locally.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Okay. I don't think I can stand on my chair. I'm kind of afraid.

Kitina Bartovick:

Don't fall.

Kelly Mize Holley:

I have on the cute little cardigan. Maybe I can just stand this far away.

Kitina Bartovick:

Oh yeah, I can see you.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Opposite way. Hang on. Let me move this giant chair.

Kitina Bartovick:

There you go.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Can you see it now?

Kitina Bartovick:

Yes.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Okay. So cute. And I have on the joggers, and there are-

Kitina Bartovick:

I love those joggers.

Kelly Mize Holley:

I love them too. So I would wear these. I have another set from Julie's collection that I wore, and we had one of Greg's really good friends who's basically like our family over on Saturday night. And we did In The Raw Grub Hub, and I had on the whole set. And everybody was like, "Is that a jumpsuit? Is that?" I mean, it's like, I love Julie's sets, because you can wear them together or separately, and they look equally as put together. So yeah.

Kitina Bartovick:

So do the joggers fit true to size? So Kelly, I'm going to say they do fit true to size. However, if you are on the cusp of being, you're two, four, you're going to be the small, I think, in the joggers.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Yes.

Kitina Bartovick:

You know, a six to eight is a medium. If you're pushing eight, nine, maybe a large. And then the 10 is a large. And Julie, if you're still watching, plug in here and tell us. I think they are true to size as long as you don't, if you have you're small, but you've got a really nice booty, or if you're a little bit hippier, maybe in the jogger, you might want to go up a size. But the shorts and the tops, I think, are totally true to size.

Kelly Mize Holley:

I agree.

Kitina Bartovick:

Without a doubt. I've had people ask me, and especially for tops, because they have that mesh insert. How long are the joggers?

Kelly Mize Holley:

Okay, so on me, I have on a small, and they're full length. They're all the way, but please remember that I'm only five, one and a half. So I am really petite. So I would say it's probably more like at an ankle length. Right? You see now?

Kitina Bartovick:

I absolutely agree. Okay. So Gina, I do know Gina, and she's a customer of ours and she loves JuJu Jams. And she is like almost six foot. So on the jogger, it's going to fit her probably right above the ankle, don't you think?

Kelly Mize Holley:

Yeah. I would think that might be a Julie question, but I think so.

Kitina Bartovick:

But that's cute in a jogger, because then you can kind of scrunch it up.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Well, and I like to have the option of pants that are shorter, because yes, you can wear them with more shoe options. If it's a shorter length, because if you a high top sneaker or short boots that are a little bit above your ankle, then you still have a little bit of a gap. And I think that that's what makes it more of a look.

Kitina Bartovick:

I agree. I agree. I think that's fun. So going back to Julie's tops, they all have this patent pending shell insert here. And so people will say, "Well, I mean, I'm a small, but I'm a double letter," that I've never even heard of, right? And Julie's kind of like that too. And she does. I mean, it's still a small is going to fit a size small. If you wear a size smaller in a top, you're a size small in JuJu, even if you are busty busty, or not so much. So it has the best fit. And I think this is such a flattering tank, because she does have some that are a strappy cami, but this is a nice sporty look, I think. And I do wear them out all the time. Not just when I come home and get into bed. So yeah.

Kelly Mize Holley:

You can't make it easier than that.

Kitina Bartovick:

Yeah. And then Julie popped in and said everything's so cute with flip flops. And she just said, "Correct. It's doesn't matter what cup size." Got that right. I was listening.

Kelly Mize Holley:

That's cool. That's helpful to know, though. I think that's really helpful.

Kitina Bartovick:

Yeah, definitely. And then how cute is this little set, you know?

Kelly Mize Holley:

Shorts.

Kitina Bartovick:

And then you've got, you're wearing the cardigan that goes with it.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Mm hmm, mm hmm. (affirmative)

Kelly Mize Holley:

I like the little tie. It's like a little satiny. It makes a pretty bow.

Kitina Bartovick:

It does.

Kelly Mize Holley:

I don't even know how to say this, but I think sometimes it's hard to make a pretty bow with a draw string. Does that even make sense?

Kitina Bartovick:

Because it kind of gets twisted and floppy.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Yeah, it's floppy. These are pretty.

Kitina Bartovick:

They are very pretty.

Kelly Mize Holley:

I think it's all about the details too, and Julie obviously thinks about the details, because she's thinking about inserts and everything, but I just think the little tie is a fun, feminine detail.

Kitina Bartovick:

Yeah, it's darling. And it is all about a little detail and looking cute, because I will still tuck in the front, because I think we're just used to doing that, even in our PJ's.

Kelly Mize Holley:

I think we are too. I catch myself doing the front tuck even around the house in my pajamas, and I'm like-

Kitina Bartovick:

Me too. But I feel really good about it. What happened to our sun? Are you getting thunder?

Kelly Mize Holley:

Yeah, I'm getting thunder. It's crazy.

Kitina Bartovick:

I'm getting thunder. My big Bernese Mountain dog is now hyperventilating, so it's not me heavy breathing, if you guys can hear it. It's Sam. And then Rosie, right before we got on, she threw up. So this is all happening right now, so that's fun.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Got to love Facebook Live.

Kitina Bartovick:

Things happen in every household. Even during quarantine.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Probably....

Kitina Bartovick:

And after this, probably clean up the throw up. I will have to give one dog Valium.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Absolutely.

Kitina Bartovick:

So, yeah. Just normal things all the time.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Yes. Julie says, "We want to feel cute all the time. No matter what time of day." We especially want to feel cute when we're dealing with dog throw up and hyperventilating.

Kitina Bartovick:

Yeah, before everyone gets home and says, "What's for dinner?"

Kelly Mize Holley:

Yeah, exactly, because I'm like, I literally don't know.

Kitina Bartovick:

I'm going to be like, "You mean you didn't bring something home for dinner for everyone?" Another cute outfit too that you could put over any JuJu top, which we didn't look at this. This is a cute little top made out of that same fabric that Barefoot Dreams does, and that cozy top and the little cropped pant. But this, again, could go nicely over one of Julie's tanks, because she has this in pink and white stripe. I have solid gray, solid white, a periwinkle...

Kelly Mize Holley:

Beautiful color.

Kitina Bartovick:

Lots of different colors in this print, which you can find on our website now at the Dolphin Fine Linens. So-

Kelly Mize Holley:

Convenient.

Kitina Bartovick:

It is convenient, which I still, I love people calling and asking my opinion, and when I think somebody else might want that I know for their birthday because they're a customer of ours or whatever, but right now such a great time to get on and click the link above to register for that Thymes gift basket.

Kitina Bartovick:

I mean, it's like $125 gift basket that you will get, and if you feel like giving it to someone else for Mother's Day, you can. Or if it's for yourself for Mother's Day, that's awesome. And with that you get 20% off. So that means you can get online today, receive 20% off on any of these styles or anything online that you've seen. If you live in the Tulsa or Jenks area, we will deliver it to you tomorrow, if we have it in stock. And since we're all at home, you click on Kelly's link, and she'll help you with your closet. I mean, this is an amazing, amazing deal, right?

Kelly Mize Holley:

Yes. Yes. I'm grateful for the opportunity to do this, because if we weren't in stay at home, I wouldn't be able to do it. So this is [crosstalk 00:20:10].

Kitina Bartovick:

Exactly.

Kelly Mize Holley:

And it's just such a great time to connect with people. And I called somebody the other day about something, and we ended up talking on the phone for an hour. And she was like, "I'm so sorry, I just want to talk to somebody." And I was like, "I think this is great."

Kitina Bartovick:

Yes.

Kelly Mize Holley:

I sort of feel like that's the silver lining, is that we're all getting to connect with each other in, I mean, like we didn't do as many of the Zoom calls and the FaceTime and the virtual happy hours. I mean, I love all of this. I want to keep it going, because I've seen people that I haven't seen in forever, and I've had meaningful conversations. So I'm kind of loving it.

Kitina Bartovick:

Exactly. We've even reached out to people, and we're like, "We're not calling to see if you need something. I mean, if you do, that's great, but how are you? What are you doing? What has been going on?" Because we're so consumed, every single person, is so consumed with what they are doing just to get through their day every day. Right? And it's not that we're not thinking of others. It's just the day gets going. And this has been such a nice time to be able to have the time to reach out to people and see what's going on again.

Kitina Bartovick:

And Kelly, I know you and I talk a lot about preserving your clothes. You've had stuff in your closet for years. You've even come in, and I'm like, "Oh my gosh, that's so cute. Is that new?" And you're like, "No. I've owned it forever."

Kelly Mize Holley:

And proud of it.

Kitina Bartovick:

So we can wash anything in our washing machine now. You know, on a gentle cycle you can wash things in cold, and it still kills germs and bacteria. You can hang dry easily. And I know that you use our washes. We have a line of linen wash, towel wash and laundry wash.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Oh Jennifer sent, "I love your store. And JuJus are my favorite," in all caps.

Kitina Bartovick:

Thank you, Jennifer.

Kelly Mize Holley:

I love that.

Kitina Bartovick:

That's so sweet. So sweet.

Kelly Mize Holley:

This detergent is my favorite detergent. It is wonderful. It smells amazing. Everything just comes out looking great, and for some reason it's not crazy wrinkly, and it doesn't, I don't know. The consistency of my materials, I feel like, is better when I pull it out of the washing machine.

Kitina Bartovick:

Yeah. So these are all formulated specifically for your laundry washes, for your laundry. So it's for those fibers to keep them strong and healthy and keep them from fraying, from discoloring. So it's wonderful. And you just use a third of a cup or less per load. I date mine whenever I get a new one, because I like to see how long they last. So I'll be dating this one in just a few days, because I'm almost out of my other ones. But I'm prepared.

Kelly Mize Holley:

I love that.

Kitina Bartovick:

So yeah. So this is really, really great stuff. We always have it in stock. We've carried it for, I don't know, 27 years or something. So a really long time. And then I don't know about you. Pardon?

Kelly Mize Holley:

That's a big commitment.

Kitina Bartovick:

Well, it's easy when you like something, right?

Kelly Mize Holley:

I know. You're invested in it, but I think there's something to be said about preserving your clothes that are classic pieces.

Kitina Bartovick:

Oh, Mary Barnes. Yeah.

Kelly Mize Holley:

She's the best. It is... Sarah.

Kitina Bartovick:

Hey, Sarah. We're obsessed with your art work and watching your girls on Instagram. Talk about a real family. I loved the other day when one of them was trying to do their homework, and they were just like, oh, at the chair. And you posted it, and you were like, "This is real." And I thought, oh my God, I remember those days. Sarah, good luck. But at least you're having fun with it. And yes, Sarah got one in every fragrance. She did, I think, the white flowers in the laundry because everyone likes that fragrance the most. And laundry is what you do the most. I think lavender in the linen wash to do her sheets. And then her ... portfolio in the towel wash. So I'm glad you're enjoying those, Sarah. Thanks.

Kitina Bartovick:

Another thing is you and I have been talking about constantly, we're in the kitchen all the time right now.

Kelly Mize Holley:

All the time.

Kitina Bartovick:

More so than ever.

Kelly Mize Holley:

It's like all we're concerned about is, or me, not necessarily you, but I feel like all we are concerned about at this house is when is our next meal, and what are we having?

Kitina Bartovick:

Oh yeah, absolutely.

Kelly Mize Holley:

And I'm in charge of all of it.

Kitina Bartovick:

It's been a challenge keeping up with it all. Especially, I'm not used to doing that at all.

Kelly Mize Holley:

I know. I know. I'm not either.

Kitina Bartovick:

But one thing that helps me get through it, and something that is in that basket-

Kelly Mize Holley:

Uh huh. (affirmative).

Kitina Bartovick:

-is... So in that Mother's Day giveaway, there will be the lemon scented counter spray. So I obviously, you can see, I've been using this like crazy, but it just makes me so happy to clean the counters, because of it. And then there's a dish washing liquid also.

Kelly Mize Holley:

I love the counter spray. I use it every night. It smells amazing. It's wonderful. It just makes me so happy to run around and spray my counters with it.

Kitina Bartovick:

Right.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Yes.

Kitina Bartovick:

I agree. I mean, anything that kind of makes things a little bit happier or easier these days is a plus for sure.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Absolutely. Yes.

Kitina Bartovick:

Well, I want to thank you for all of your TikToks. I want to continue doing more, because there's so much fun.

Kelly Mize Holley:

So fun.

Kitina Bartovick:

And I want to learn. I want to be in one. We're going to do one after this quarantine's over.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Yes. Yay, finally. I would love to do a TikTok video with you. That'd be awesome. That would be great.

Kitina Bartovick:

So, everyone. You what?

Kelly Mize Holley:

What?

Kitina Bartovick:

What'd you say?

Kelly Mize Holley:

No, you go.

Kitina Bartovick:

I just want to say thank you again to everybody. Please click on our links for a 30 minute, free virtual consultation and conversation with Kelly, and to enter at the Dolphin Fine Linens for our giveaway of the Mother's Day basket filled with Thymes products.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Kelly Mize Holley:

Kitina Bartovick:

Maybe we'll do it again this week.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Yeah, I would love to do it again this week. That'd be so fun.

Kitina Bartovick:

Okay.

Kelly Mize Holley:

Thank you.

Kitina Bartovick:

Have a great evening. Thanks everyone. Don't forget to sign up. Bye.
