You used to be able to find a fairly lengthy article here about, you guessed it, botched plastic surgeries.
We added it to our site a long time ago. Back then, this kind of blog posting was very much in fashion. Everyone wanted to create easily digestable, clickable content. Some companies still do this. Sometimes the results are great, sometimes they are a little cringe inducing.
Well, we’ve done some growing up. We’re getting older. We launched Customized Girl in 2004. In terms of internet technology companies, we are ancient. In our old age, we’re starting to reconsider some of our old habits.
We’re also starting to think about our legacy and our future. Even though we’re old, we plan on being around for another 200 years.
What do we want to tell the world? What is our core message? What impact can we have?
The truth is this. We want to empower women. We want to create a place where women and girls can feel positive about themselves and the world.
We print custom apparel and accessories. It may seem pretty simple. But when you open our design center, type out a phrase, and a week later you are wearing that phrase across your chest, walking down the street, holding your head high… this can be powerful. Something bigger is at play. Something as simple as a custom sweatshirt or a custom crop top can be extremely empowering.
You know what is not empowering? Sitting in a chair, writing an article about a celebrity’s plastic surgery nightmare. We made a mistake by publishing this post. So we took it down.
We’re all learning and growing, right? Change can be a good thing. Progress can be a great thing.
Thank you for understanding.
