I Let My Husband Choose my Outfits

My husband HATES when I ask him, "Do I look good in this?" Or, "What should I wear?"  So...just to annoy him even more I made him choose my outfits for a week.  Bahahahaha!  Ladies, he put about 10 seconds effort into each of these outfit selections but I thought you'd get a kick out of what he chose.  How well did he do?  You be the … [Read more...]

5 MUST HAVE style trends you need to get on board with NOW!

We travel the country looking for the latest and greatest, and here are a few stand outs that we've caught on to! 1.) Kimonos They're more versatile than you think!  Wear with denim capris or shorts, a tank and you're set for a great girl's outing!  Wear as an ultra chic swim cover up.  Layer it over a fitted dress for a great contrast! 2.)

Em’s Market Predictions…

I LOVE going to market!  It's one of my favorite parts of my job.  Market, as we call it, is where retailers such as myself go and shop 1,000's of vendors and choose what our store's will carry for the season.  I'm fortunate enough to go to furniture market, home decor market and apparel market.  Tough gig, huh?  Shopping for days on end?!

A Little Idea with BIG Rewards (and awards!)

About 4 years ago I had a plan...well sort of.  As you know (or maybe don't know) I own and operate a large furniture store in a small town.  This store is over 100,000 square feet and it's our mission to draw people from all over (5 states) to visit us.  That takes some work.  We can't just be the typical furniture store.  We've worked really hard to become more than that.  Actually, my parents originally WORKED REALLY HARD to make it special years ago.  Now it's my job to keep it that … [Read more...]

“Am I too old to wear that?” When are we too old for shorts, leggings, and crop tops?

I hear this statement all the time in the boutique, "I'm too old to wear that!"  Just this week a co-worker and I who are in our late 30's asked the questions "Are we too old for shortS?" So what is the answer? Are we too old? Vogue says "To assume style has an expiry date is as problematic as it is boring. Does fashion cater to youth culture? Well, duh. But that’s arguably because youth is the fashion gateway." I loved this answer! The more and more I researched what the gods of fashion say … [Read more...]
