Both Aprizi’s The Tail and its founder Giff Constable’s blog are two of my favorite reads on the web. If you are a designer trying to do business in today’s market, then you need to be reading The Tail. If you are an entrepreneur or web startup, you will love Giff’s blog.

Aprizi is a New York based e-commerce company that personalizes each user’s shopping experience and also introduces you to the hottest emerging designers on one convenient platform. The business model is brilliant actually, or maybe I think it’s brilliant because Aprizi seems to target people just like me, shoppers who enjoy higher end luxury goods by passionate independent designers, shoppers with well-defined values who like to shop within those defined values (e.g., vegan, eco-friendly, socially-conscious, etc.).
The Tail, Aprizi’s blog, features small e-comm. businesses and budding designers, hmm, kind of like me. Oh! And since we’re on the topic, I’m featured over at The Tail! =)

And this paragraph from the post makes me sound way cooler than I actually am:
Sunny Woan is a lawyer by day, emerging handbag designer by night, in the process of getting her first collection ready for launch. In creating her new brand, Taryn Zhang, Sunny has charged up a steep learning curve, hunted down great mentors, and tackled her entrepreneurial venture with determination, high standards, and flexibility in the face of challenges. A lot of people are asking themselves what the future of retail looks like. You might be intrigued by this perspective from a fresh voice on the designer side.
That makes me sound like “rawr!” when inside I’m still feeling more like “squeak.”
