March On



I think I’ve said this before but when we buy for bloom, our typical schedule is 6 months or more in advance. For example, last February I was buying product for this September and beyond. It takes me about two weeks to completely forget what we bought and then when it comes in, I’m always surprised (this is either a good thing or a bad thing). We call it ‘market amnesia’ and it happens all the time. We wised up after our first few market trips and now we take photos like all good buyers should. The thing is… I somehow am still surprised when new styles come in. But this jacket, this jacket I pretty much had a countdown to when this gem was coming in. It’s Michael Jackson circa 1980s meets high school marching band leader in the best way possible. It’s what shopgirl dreams are made of.

dress: similar
