Size matters?

Hi everyone…it’s been awhile, but I am back, with an opinion of course!

As we settle in to our second location, I am thinking about how our customers feel when they walk into both of our boutiques. This got me thinking about something that totally bothers me! This new trend of customers walking into stores and being told, “I don’t think we are for you” Really…. are business’s doing that well these days that they can not only refuse someone service but make them feel inferior because of their size?

We have grown up in the shadow of jutting hip bones and sunken cheeks of the likes of Twiggy, Cher, Kate Moss and the rise of the super model as celebrity, don’t get me wrong I really like and respect these women for what they have achieved.

Spring Fashion is here. What is your favorite this year?

It is said you are what you eat…I say, you are what you wear!

We come into this world with the same gifts…2 arms, 2 legs, one torso, hair, etc…how will we express our individuality and let the world know who we are if we all begin the same? Will I choose short hair, long, bangs? Will I follow the trends or be a trendsetter? Some of us are born to be little fashionistas, we see it in our daughter’s when they are just 3 and she wants pretty frilly dresses and will wear nothing else, our nieces who wants her hair short and will only wear jeans and sweatshirts, our son who at 4 wants to wear a bowtie to school …

Are these children reading fashion magazines? Maybe, but most likely not, this shows us we are somewhat hardwired to like what we like (some of us have the confidence from birth to just go for it). Not unlike food where some of us prefer salty to sweet, etc… [Read more...]
