Mom and I just returned from a market trip to Dallas, Texas. Hopefully, you have already checked out my blog post on our Treska Warehouse tour. If not, do it now so you can learn all about how a Treska necklace is made from start to finish!
Today’s post is on a different topic, however. I want you, our precious customers and loyal readers, to know that we absolutely, positively, believe in the lines we sell at Fashion Crossroads. How much, you ask? So much that we wear them and use them when we travel! You all know that we women take our very favorite things with us when we go on trips. The ho-hums in our closets never see the inside of our suitcases and travel bags. Oh no, only the coziest, cutest and most comfortable items get that special privilege. For me and my mom and our trip to Dallas, those favorite things were Sympli and Vera Bradley. Let me tell you why.
Sympli is the most wonderful line (not kidding) that I have ever worn. It looks amazing because it has a fabulous fit, and it is oh so comfortable to wear. Because you can pack it without worrying about wrinkles and because the line is so well thought out, you can literally grab two bottoms and three tops and have a whole week worth of outfits. For example, I brought my Sympli leggings and mini skirt (I always wear these together) and my capris for my bottoms as well as a white pair of jeans. Then I threw in my sleeveless Cascade Top (see picture above), my cold shoulder Nu Urban top, my Go To Tank Tunic and my favorite Sympli jacket. These 7 pieces saw me through 5 days and took me from seminars, to show room floor, to dinner out on the town.
When it came down to packing, both mom and I chose Vera Bradley travel gear even though we each have other options. My mom took her Vera rolling carry on in black. She was able to push it through the airport with ease due to the four wheeled bottom. I was able to lift it above my head to put it into the carry on luggage rack without breaking my back! Yeah for me!
I took my Vera Grand Traveler soft sided bag, my Vera tote and my Vera cross body cell phone purse. You can see some of these items in the picture below. The tote bag worked to hold my book, spare cell phone battery, headphones, files, Kind bar, and iPad while I was on the plane without being too bulky to fit under the seat in front of me. The cell phone purse was perfect to sling across my body to keep my cell phone, driver’s license and credit cards handy and within reach while I was going through security and waiting to board the plane. When it was time to get on the plane, I just took my cell phone purse off and put it inside the tote, and I didn’t have to get in a fight with the gate agent about having too many carry-ons. Inside my Grand Traveler bag was the Vera hanging organizer that I could simply hang up on the back of the bathroom door and reach all my cosmetics easily without cluttering up the bathroom counter. I also had my Vera jewelry organizer which kept my earrings and necklaces and bracelets in separate compartments (I love organization, especially when I travel). Then, while I was at market, the Vera tote worked perfectly as a brief case. I have to say, I really do love these products.
When I convince my customers to buy a product we sell based upon my recommendation, I take that very seriously. Know that before I will tell you it is a wonderful product, I have put it though the test of my own life. If we sell it, we believe in it! We have just marked down a special rack of discontinued styles and colors of Sympli to 30% off. (Mark downs in this line never happen so grab them while the gettin’ is good). We also have several patterns of Vera Bradley that are 25% off, and we are expecting our new fall arrivals from Painted Medallions and Falling Flowers any day!
Happy travels, and don’t forget your Sympli and Vera Bradley!
