To Browse, Perchance to Buy

Ah Monday evenings. Usually the time to catch up on the weekends paperwork, work on the schedules, and after 7pm, process the weekly markdowns. It’s quiet. I get a lot done.

Quiet night = lots of “just lookings”.

Can I say how much I hate that phrase. It’s like we’ve been programmed to respond to say that the SECOND we come in the store. Of course you’re just looking. At our bright lights, adorable outfits, funky new arrivals….and oh, I digress.

Here’s the thing: when the salesperson says “Hi!”

We KNOW you’re just looking. And WE are just saying Hello!

Letting you know that we are aware of your presence, and we value the fact that you chose to come into our store to possibly purchase a new happy item with your hard earned money.

So don’t be alarmed or immediately blurt “Just looking”…..we don’t bite.

Often.

 

By the way. Fall is coming. The colours are already arriving… warm wine tones, deep olives, rich purples and sharp emerald greens are the go-tos for this Fall!

Feminine structured jackets, for office wear paired with¬† the printed pant in subtle tone on tone is what will set the gossip goin’ at the watercooler! And DON’T forget to accessorize….mock croc handbags, and longer multi-tone necklaces are must-haves.

Thigh Gap?

This is quite possibly the most ridiculous trend I’ve ever heard of.

Thigh gap. Puh-leease.
Maybe, if you’re born with that body type.
For the rest of us… it is what it is. Spanx type shapers and baby powder. Oh yeah.

 

Love the skin you’re in. Be fabulous, because you are.
