Don't worry I'm still at my fab new job. It's my hair that was on the chopping block. Originally I was scheduled for a drastic cut and color with my stylist this past Tuesday, but since I had to start working as soon as I accepted, I had to cancel. My heart was set on having it all chopped off this week so I took my chances on a last minute appointment with a stylist I'd never seen. That's always nerve racking isn't it? Especially when I wanted to do something along the lines of an edgy bob. I think she did pretty decent job. I'll have see my stylist to color and maybe fine tune some layers.
You all are probably dying to hear how the new j.o.b. is going. The "shop" is what you would imagine; a couture fashion show running on repeat on the television, a wall of inspiration boards and schematics of the next sales blitz. On my first day they had me jump in to assist in a floor move in one of the men's departments. At the moment I am up to my ears in holiday garland with a little mannequin styling sprinkled in.
Today before opening a few of the designer brand departments presented some of the trends in the form of a mini fashion show, just heavenly. Of course my favorite piece was a fur collar military jacket by Elizabeth and James for....oh a mere $800. Surprisingly I have been minding my pocketbook. Having a hand in creating the look and feel of the store I now look at the store in a whole new light. In just a week I am looking past the clothing (GASP!) and viewing the "shopability" of the store. This could be a good thing, but I'm a little scared about the upcoming Half-Yearly sale next week. It can prove to be very dangerous.
My in-laws are coming into town next week and I have reserved a day with the MIL for some R,R&R. Rest, relaxation and retail therapy. One thing I love about my mother-in-law is that she loves to shop. Once a year she comes out and she is ready to $pend!
