So I have to tell you, today was rough. My dear, sweet mom left her purse on a bench just outside the market entrance. When we finally realized it, we discovered that some honest buyer had turned in the purse to a market worker who turned it into a security officer who turned it into the security office. The problem was that somewhere between the market worker (who is convinced the phone was still in my mom’s bag when she gave it to the security officer) and the security office, her iPhone 6 and $200 cash went missing. Total bummer! It is really frustrating when you are pretty sure the guy who is supposed to be protecting you is the one who took your property. Worse is when the security office shows no interest in investigating the theft. You could almost hear them thinking….”dumb lady, shouldn’t have left your purse, tsk, tsk, tsk. Not our problem (even though it was likely one of our guys who did it).”
Anyway…despite the iPhone fiasco, we did manage to get some buying in today. We started out the day at Lysee leggings where we purchased new colors for our spring leggings including
heathered brown and grey as well as a cute denim cropped legging. We also found several amazing embellished black leggings. I am most excited about the champagne joggers that we bought because these have a silky fabric and Lysee’s fabulous shaper underneath. By the way, a jogger is a loose fitting, silk pant with an elastic cuff at the ankle. They are a key trend.
Next we visited Ginger G, one of my favorite young contemporary lines we carry at FC Outlet. As usual, we found lots of really cute tops, dresses and skirts there. And as has been the case with every young contemporary line we visited in the last two days, the booth was packed.
Then, we headed to Lush to purchase some more young contemporary items for the Outlet as well as picked up a new line that is very cute and similar to Pretty Angel but younger. This line has a vintage feel and focuses on layering slip dresses under lacey tanks and tops. Sooo cute!
You may notice that none of the pictures in today’s blog are from the booths that we visited today. I’ll share some more pictures from today in tomorrow’s blog post because for some unknown reason, I cannot get my photo stream to update on my ipad. Today is just not a good Apple day. I think I’ll put all my devices away for the night and hope everythings goes better tomorrow!
Here’s to a new day….
