jbCM: Please introduce yourselves to the readers.
Nicole: My name is Nicole Lorenzana, and I am the owner of Blue Sass Custom Creations. I am originally from California, but I’ve lived all over the world. I lived in Europe, the East Coast, and more recently Denver. Now I am here in Colorado Springs, and I love it.
Desiree: My name is Desiree Lorenzana, I am from Oklahoma and I’ve been in Colorado since 1992. Before Blue Sass I used to care for my grandparents who were ill, up until they passed. Before that I mostly did telemarketing and car detailing.
jbCM: What is Blue Sass?
Nicole: At Blue Sass we customize shoes, clothing, and accessories. We can take your logo and put it on anything. For example; we customize smocks, capes, and umbrellas for a salon, and we also do all the logo work for Fallen Heroes Tattoo Parlor here in Colorado Springs.
jbCM: What do you mean when you say customize?
Desiree: When we say customize, we mean if you have an idea we can put it on ANYTHING!
jbCM: What made you get into what you’re doing?
Nicole: We were on our way to a Madonna concert in 2015, and we wanted to make an 80’s outfit. Everyone loved what we did! When my mom was diagnosed with cancer, we made her t-shirts to lift her spirits and she just loved them. Then we started customizing shoes, and it was a huge hit so we started to add in more things and here we are!
jbCM: What gave you the confidence to start this business?
Nicole: I got the confidence from the reactions we got from people when we made them something.
Desiree: I can do anything I can put my mind to, and I know that Nicole can do the same so it gives me the confidence to keep going.
jbCM: What’s your favorite part about what you do?
Desiree: My favorite part is seeing people’s expressions when they see what we made for them, and seeing people wearing our creations.
jbCM: Describe a memorable reaction you had from a customer.
Desiree: We customized heels for an America’s Next Top Model contestant, Victoria Henley, a few years ago and she loves them so much she still wears them to this day. I see them on T.V. and in magazines all the time.
