As the summer comes to a close, we’re busy, busy, busy in both my businesses, preparing for the season’s changes. Dexter, my almost seven year old son, is going back to school planning his birthday, and we’ve had one last weekend at our friend’s cottage as it’s officially September!
With September comes the seasonal what to wear dilemma! It’s cool in the morning and warm in the afternoon. Evenings are chilly and we want to look put-together and feel great.
Lately I’ve been relying on our fabulous store staff to be my personal shoppers. The say it takes a village to raise a child. Well, it seems it takes a staff to keep this busy lady looking polished and great everyday!
Our store staff are fashion experts – they know my style, my shape as well as what I like. When I plan to come by, they pre-stock the changeroom for me. It makes shopping a breeze, and often I try things I wouldn’t normally try, and I’m pleasantly surprised. When accessories that come in that help me get more looks out of the pieces I have, they send me a snapshot and ask if I’d like it held to pick up when I come by next.
I feel like a pampered VIP and you know what, you can too!
This personalized service is available to any customers who ask. Our staff is thrilled to be able to select things and suggest them just for you. Our business is all about matching up the wonderful pieces we carry with the fabulous ladies who may not have the time in their great and busy lives to spend a lot of time shopping.
For fall, I’m stocking up on the great cardis, wraps and accessories we’re receiving every day. This is an easy way to transition my summer dresses to fall while the weather is still warm, and I can layer and unlayer as needed throughout the day.
Joe and Aimee at Fresh Collective Roncesvalles suggested this for me, and I think they made a fabulous choice. Don’t you? This cardi will go with so many dresses and skirts I already own, and be that perfect versatile layering piece. In fact, I might need to pick up a couple more colours!
