Blue Lace


I bought this skirt (from myself) as soon as it came into the shop about a month ago. Truth be told, I do this with most styles I love, as my size usually doesn’t even hit the floor. This has proven to be convenient and dangerous, but honestly mainly convenient. Since we buy styles up to 6-7 months in advance for the shop, I have market amnesia and usually forget what we purchased until the day it shows up at the shop and then it’s like Christmas, pretty much every week. 

What is that saying? Do what you love and never work a day in your life? I’ve not found that to be true with the shop because well let’s be honest: work is work, but blue lace skirts make it worth it.

    It's so true that getting new shipments in feels like Christmas. I work in a store called Go Fish and everytime we get a delivery, my boss and I are beyond thrilled to go through all the new goodies. It makes work seem so much more fun. And it's almost impossible to not want to buy every single item that I like, staring at them, day after day.

    I would consider it a personal favor if you would do a shirt-tucking-in tutorial. I can never get my shirts to lay right! They always look weird and bunchy and it reminds me of the second grade when my mom would tuck my shirts in all the way around and then "blouse them out". Don't make me walk around with my shirts bloused out!

    I do find that the more you enjoy working, the more you WANT to work. There's nothing worse than even a couple hours of unfulfilling work. I'd know – at my last job, even a cute outfit couldn't make the day seem bearable. It sure makes me appreciate my current job!
