So doing your hair with one hand is difficult but trying to get your hair in a bun is a show. I’m filming myself the next time I pull this hair in a bun with my one good arm…
It’s about a 15 minute process that involves a lot of unnatural bending and curse words. Let’s just say, God knew what he was doing when he made us with pairs of limbs. Who wants to come over and do my hair for me everyday for the next 6 weeks? I pay in hugs.
We had this top at bloom for all of two seconds — it flew right out the door. To my surprise, because it’s the least holiday of our holiday collection. Holiday season is actually my least favorite time to buy for the shop because there is usually an explosion of sequins at every collection we see. It’s quite the challenge of trying to find the right pieces that will sell and the pieces that won’t ever never, no matter how much you put them on sale, or even if you hang a five dollar bill on them as an incentive. In my first fall/winter at the store I’d become so holiday happy during the buying trip that by December all we had were sequins, sparkles and fancy dresses that the only appropriate place to wear them to was the Grammy’s. Trust me, you only make that mistake once. I think that’s why I was drawn to this shirt, it was the right mix between holiday and workday. If only those two required the same uniform, then I could stock sequins all year.
