For this blog post, we played a little game. Alli and I decided to conduct a style challenge and thought it would be fun to show how we each individually wore the Camo Blazer. We then each debuted our looks one morning a few weeks ago near downtown Minneapolis. We had one rule, which was no pairing with stripes (because even though we both love that look so so much, we’ve already been there & done that as noted here, so new looks had to be created). Anyway this will definitely be a game we start doing more regularly in the future, because it’s awesome to see the different ways and personalities an item can take on. And as you can see, we both went in entirely different directions with our looks. SO much fun!! Which goes to show that even an item that has this much of a pattern to it is still very versatile.
ALLI’s LOOK - LAYERS WITH TEXTURE
AMY’S LOOK - SASSY PANTS
A few closing thoughts on the blazer to leave you with ….. first and foremost, all remaining stock of it (which isn’t a ton) is now on SALE. Also, the fit is a little tight so if you are in between sizes….my recommendation would definitely be to size up. Alli and I both wore a size medium.
Have a great weekend & hope to see many of you at our store party tomorrow! If you can’t make it, check online because the same deals will be available there too!
Holy schmoly, it’s been a year. So at this exact time last year, Alli and I (along with many members of our family, those kind souls) were loading boxes and boxes and boxes of inventory from storage into a U-Haul truck to move into our first temporary store location – which was followed by 2+ (ahem....glorious?) weeks of unpacking, setting up our systems, and arranging, before finally opening for business the day before Thanksgiving.
The first year brought a lot of learning curves and new experiences, like competing an entire build-out of the store location we moved into in April, launching a website, starting the design of our own private label, etc. And now we want to CELEBRATE! Everyone is invited to our 1 Year Birthday party that we are having in store on Saturday, November 21st! We couldn’t be more excited to be teaming up with professional stylist, Sarah Fastner, to help make the day really awesome for everyone. We have gotten to know Sarah this past year as she was helping her tall clients find clothes in the store and immediately loved her. She is a WHIZ/PRO/GENIUS at helping women understand their bodies and dress them to feel their absolute best. Our entire staff underwent one of her styling sessions & let me just say – we definitely left wanting more. You can read more about Sarah on the web here: http://thestylistonline.com/find-a-stylist/stylists-in-minnesota/.
Here’s the REALLY cool part, we have slots for a few lucky ladies to work with Sarah 1x1 during the day, entirely free of charge! Using your specific proportions, she will teach you professional dos and don’ts to look and feel your best. Each time slot is 45 minutes and available on a first-come, first-serve basis by either emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, calling us at 952-405-8137 or stopping by the store to sign up. If you’ve always dreamed of having a stylist, I’m telling you, you cannnnnot miss out on this.
In addition to the sessions, she will also be conducting a Styling Summit Seminar in the mall for whomever would like to attend. That will begin at 12pm noon that day and run for about 30 minutes. Of course, we’ll also have great deals in store and some raffle giveaways, so it will be a lot of fun. Not in Minnesota – no sweat! The same deals will be available online that weekend!
Thanks so much for a wonderful first year and hope to celebrate with you in the next few weeks!
