Happy November Tuesday! Today, I am discussing the joys of shopping in-store!
Sometimes, a shopping outing is a shout in the arm of joy for me…for several reasons.
JOY #1: DRESSING MY BEST
I like to fix up and go out for a shopping venture in-store. I really get a boost from looking my best to go look over what is on the racks.
I try to always wear easy on/ easy off shoes…and a top which would work for trying on jackets.
Also, if I dress up, feel confident, and wear makeup then the clothing I try on will give me a true idea of how it works for me.
On a recent in-store shopping trip, I wore my
Talbot’s Cotton Twill Field Jacket…wearing it often…so perfect for warmer climates
Past purchase, burnt orange tee shirt from GAP.
Scarf originally from Nordstrom Rack.
Chico’s Jeggings. (as I said on Sunday, these jeggings are officially a workhorse in my wardrobe, wear them often!)
JOY #2: INTERACTION IN-STORE
I love to shop with friends, but if I am alone, I usually make new friends and enjoy the women in-store.
When I went out last week, I met so many lovely women shopping in the same stores. We shared looks with one another and asked opinions.
The interaction was so much fun. Also, the sales representatives were in great moods, ready to help and give good customer service.
At Chico’s we were all out in this large area where the best mirrors are…helping one another and enjoying being each other’s shopping buddies.
I did purchase the Chico’s Wool Bolero…and almost wore it out of store! I am liking hats so much more with my new hair.
JOY #3: EASIER TO DETERMINE FIT
It saves time and money to go in-store and try on the styles…especially hats.
Many of the winter ponchos and wraps are oversized and I have been sizing down like I did in the third photo at Chico’s in the Zip and Snap Front Poncho.
Then it helped to slip this one on at Kohl’s since it is one size fits all. Women’s LC Lauren Conrad Solid Knit Riding Cape.
Also note…I have my eye on the LC Lauren Conrad Gabriellaa Woman’s Faux Fur Mules…super soft and comfy.
I have a gift post coming up soon with items I found at Kohl’s.
Oh, I almost forgot…the Women’s Sonoma Goods for life felt fedora with suede band was also a great hat. I liked the hat color and fit at Chico’s better.
HOWEVER, I UNDERSTAND…
Many of you either cannot or do not desire to shop in-store.
That is why I am here to help you with gift ideas for yourself or others. A season of sales and special offerings is about to get full throttle under way.
I always appreciate when you go to the top of the page under SHOPPING LINKS and use my links to shop in order to support my work here…I really, really appreciate it.
Just let me know if there is another brand you want to know if I have a link…you can always email me at email@example.com
Here is today’s slideshow of ideas….
So, what is your preference? In-store…online…or a combination of both? Please share and thank you so much for stopping by!
KEEP SMILING, EVERYONE!!
